International Lithium Corp. Market Unduly Affected by Trade Input Error

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 4, 2011) - International Lithium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ILC)(TSX VENTURE:ILC.WT) (the "Company") announces that due to a trade input error, an action completely unconnected to the Company and independent of the Company's business, there was an undue impact on the Company's market price.

At the market open this morning, July 04, 2011, 50,000 shares of the Company were erroneously sold 'At Market' (the "Trade") which materially decreased the share price of the Company. The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada ("IIROC"), the national self-regulatory organization which oversees all investment dealers and trading activity on debt and equity marketplaces in Canada, made a ruling for the purpose of market integrity to allow the Trade to stand and assigned a $0.14 market floor for the Trade share price.

"The erroneous trading activity and resulting fluctuation in our share price that occurred this morning is absolutely unrelated to any aspect of our Company and is an unfortunate isolated event," states International Lithium Corp. President Mike Sieb. "There has been no material change to the Company or its projects and I maintain full confidence in our endeavours moving forward."


International Lithium Corp. is an international rare element metals ("REM") mineral exploration company with an outstanding portfolio of projects, strong management ownership, robust financial support and a prominent lithium product manufacturer as a keystone investor.

ILC currently has 9 active REM projects, well balanced between lithium brines in Argentina and Nevada and hard-rock pegmatites in Canada and Ireland. The Company's primary focus is the Mariana lithium brine project, a salar or 'salt lake', covering an expansive 160 square kilometres and strategically encompassing the entire basin. Mariana is located in the renowned South American 'Lithium Belt' centred around the junction of Argentina, Bolivia and Chile that is host to the vast majority of global lithium resources, reserves and production. The Mariana lithium brine project ranks as one of the more prospective salars in the region.

Complementing the Company's lithium brine projects are the REM pegmatite properties. The key outstanding characteristics shared by these hard-rock REM projects are their underexplored nature, excellent accessibility, under-analyzed rare metals' history, significant potential that additional exploration will add project value and ultimate potential ability to develop the projects to meet the global technological growth in demand for the REM suite of elements.

International Lithium Corp.'s mandate is to increase shareholder value through aggressive advancement of its core projects and to source joint venture partners to expand the scope and diversify risk of its exploration effort.

On behalf of the Board,

Mike Sieb, President – International Lithium Corp.
