NetworkNewsWire Announces Publication on Lithium's Role in a Substantial Shift in the Automotive Industry

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 26, 2017) - NetworkNewsWire ("NNW"), a multifaceted financial news and publishing company, today announces the publication of an editorial featuring Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: SLL) (FRANKFURT: S5L) (OTCQX: STLHF), a client of NNW that is building one of the largest portfolios of high quality, domestic U.S. lithium brine assets.

"Germany, with the fourth-largest auto manufacturing industry in the world, plans a total ban on all internal combustion engines by 2030, while the UK has set its deadline for 2040. The Netherlands is mulling similar plans, and France wants all petrol and diesel cars off its roads by 2040. In addition to air pollution, oil spills are also a great global concern, posing ravishing and long-lasting economic and environmental consequences (http://nnw.fm/kwHt0).

"Naturally, more electric vehicles on the road means more lithium-powered batteries, and, consequently, demand for the metal is climbing. Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: SLL) (FRANKFURT: S5L) (OTCQX: STLHF) is gearing up to play its part in boosting supplies. The Canada-based junior exploration company is intent on acquiring more domestic lithium-rich properties, looking to unlock value from overlooked U.S. lithium assets by applying new technologies and processes. Its first project in San Bernardino County, California, at the Bristol Dry Lake has already started to show signs of promise. Test results from a new geophysical survey of the 25,000-acre Bristol Lake site indicate that high concentrations of lithium-bearing brines are present throughout the company's mineral lease agreement claims."
