In accordance with the terms of the plan of arrangement, the shareholders of record as at Thursday, June 19, 2008 will receive one share of Western Lithium for every three shares of the Company held.

In addition, Western Lithium is completing a previously announced private placement of 16,220,000 of its common shares which are being offered at a price of $0.50 per share for gross proceeds of $8,110,000. The private placement will close immediately prior to the completion of the Arrangement.
