About Lithium One:

Lithium One Inc. is a Canadian-based explorer and developer of mineral properties with a specific focus on lithium. The Company has two major lithium projects: the brownfields Sal de Vida lithium brine project in Argentina and the James Bay bulk tonnage spodumene project in Quebec. Korea Resources Corporation (KORES) is earning a 30% interest in the Sal de Vida project by funding up to US$15 million to complete a Definitive Feasibility Study and has also agreed to provide a completion guarantee for Lithium One's share of the debt portion of project development costs. The Company continues to advance both its projects toward resource definition, expecting NI 43-101 compliant resource estimates before the end of 2010. Lithium One believes that lithium demand will grow as its value as a preferred battery material is fully realized. The Company's strategy is to draw upon its quality team and employ best-practice to fully develop its portfolio of top-tier lithium assets.
