September 28, 2016

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Sept. 28, 2016) – Millennial Lithium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ML), (“Millennial” or the “Company”) would like to clarify certain disclosure made in its news release dated September 26, 2016. That news release stated:

“Millennial plans to apply its rapid development strategy to the Cauchari East Property. Pending government and community approvals, the Company will rapidly advance through geophysics to drilling in order to make a quick assessment of resources, and as warranted add Cauchari East as another production unit to the “pipeline” of their lithium production assets.”

First, the wording “assessment of resources” is premature. There is no geological report outlining a resource on any of the Company’s properties and they are not at an advanced exploration stage at which a resource, if any, could be delineated or calculated.

Secondly, the Company is not currently in production. Its properties are at an exploration stage and the outcome of further exploration, including any geophysics or drilling, and other factors as well as any feasibility study that may be undertaken will determine if production is feasible from any of its properties.

Thus, the Company wishes to amend its statement to more correctly read:

“Millennial plans to apply its rapid development strategy to the Cauchari East Property. Pending government and community approvals, the Company will advance through geophysics to drilling in order to make, in as short an amount of time as possible, an assessment of resource potential. As warranted, the Company plans on advancing the project through the necessary work and studies to estimate a resource and, if a resource can be proven, to determining if commercial production is feasible.”

This news release has been reviewed by Iain Scarr, VP of Development and Exploration, of the Company and a qualified person as that term is defined in National Instrument 43-101.

Millennial Lithium Options Cauchari East Lithium Project in Argentina

TSX VENTURE : ML

September 26, 2016

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Sept. 26, 2016) – Millennial Lithium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ML), (“Millennial” or the “Company“) is pleased to report it has entered into an option agreement (the “Agreement”) to acquire 100% of the Cauchari East Lithium Project (the “Project”) in Jujuy Province, Argentina from Fernando Erik Villarroel Alcocer (the “Vendor”), subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Project is strategically located within the “Lithium Triangle,” which is host to some of the world’s largest lithium resources.

Cauchari East covers an area of 2,990 hectares on the eastern side of the Cauchari-Olaroz Salar, adjacent to Orocobre’s producing Salar de Olaroz and Lithium Americas Corp.’s advanced stage Cauchari-Olaroz. The property displays geological characteristics common with the deeper, buried salar-type mineralization that has been proven for both of those projects. Gravity and magneto-telluric (MT) survey profiles to the south of the property reported in the Orocobre Technical Report, and VES survey results to the north of the property as reported by Lithium Americas both indicate that the brine-hosting aquifers extend beneath the Cauchari East Project.

Since 2009, considerable work has been completed in the Cauchari Salar by Orocobre and Lithium Americas, much of which is detailed in environmental reports and NI43-101 technical reports on the salar. In additional to the geophysics surveys, the reports disclose significant geochemical data confirming that brine resources with high lithium concentrations extend to the eastern boundaries of the basin, in the direction of the Cauchari East Project. Lithium enrichment in this area of the Cauchari basin appears to be related to the deep structure that hosts the Cerro Negro volcano and which bounds the Cauchari East property along its western limit.

Millennial plans to apply its rapid development strategy to the Cauchari East property. Pending government and communities approvals, the Company will rapidly advance through geophysics to drilling in order to make a quick assessment of resources, and as warranted add Cauchari East as another production unit to the “pipeline” of their lithium production assets.

Under the terms of the Agreement, Millennial can acquire a 100% interest in the Project, royalty and easement free, in consideration of the following payments, share issuances and work commitments:

(a) to earn a 50% interest in the Property:
(i) pay to the Optionor $250,000 upon execution of this Agreement;
(ii) issue to the Optionor $500,000 worth of Millennial common shares within ten (10) business days of the date of TSX Venture Exchange approval (the “Approval Date”) of this Agreement;
(iii) pay to the Optionor an additional $750,000 on or before the first anniversary of the Approval Date;
(iv) issue to the Optionor an additional $1,000,000 worth of Millennial common shares on or before the first anniversary of the Approval Date; and
(v) make $2,000,000 in Expenditures on or before the first anniversary of the Approval Date unless another date is agreed by the parties.
(b) to earn the remaining 50% interest in the Property, make the following additional payments, share issuances and Expenditures:
(i) pay to the Optionor $1,000,000 on or before the third anniversary date of the Approval Date;
(ii) issue to the Optionor $1,000,000 worth of Millennial common shares on or before the third anniversary date of the Approval Date; and
(iii) make an additional $2,000,000 in Expenditures on or before the third anniversary of the Approval Date.

Graham Harris, Chairman of Millennial, states “Adding Cauchari East compliments our strategy to acquire and advance multiple properties in the Lithium Triangle . Cauchari East, gives us another project that is drill ready and based on the work of Orocobre and others, provides us an excellent opportunity for early success”.

This news release has been reviewed by Brent Butler, director, qualified person as that term is defined in National Instrument 43-101.

  3. Paying, on April 6, 2017, $500,000 (US) (the “Second Installment”) to the Vendors and issuing to the Vendors $500,000 (US) (the “Second Share Installment”) worth of the Company’s common shares;
  4. Making exploration expenditures of $1,600,000 (US) (the “Required Exploration Expenditures”) on or before September 16, 2017; and

The region exhibits significant lithium and potassium brines and historically the Project has been tested by surface geochemical sampling, Magnetolluric (MT) surveying, CSAMT, vertical electrical sounding (VES) geophysical surveying and by 4 pumping wells testing and measuring brine flows in aquifers with significant lithium and potassium assays. Millennial is planning to continue with exploration and development of the Project and expects to report on such exploration plans in the coming weeks.

Millennial Lithium closes C$1.2M financing and starts exploring the Lincoln claims

Millennial-Lithium-logo

Millennial Lithium (ML.V), the newest kid on the Lithium block, has announced it’s planning to start a surface sampling program at its Lincoln Lithium project in Big Smoky Valley in Nevada. The company’s claims are located right next to the claims owned by Ultra Lithium, and back in the 70’s, the USGS has already drilled a few holes in the Big Smoky Valley, which returned anomalous levels of lithium. Ultra Lithium ( ULI.V) has recently released some preliminary assay results from the first drill hole on its property and with a lithium grade of up to 270 ppm, the Big Smoky valley confirms its status as a potential future source of lithium.

Millennial Lithium ML 2

The company has also completed a C$1.2M private placement priced at C$0.15 per unit, with each unit consisting of one common share and one warrant, exercisable at C$0.30 for two years.

The surface exploration program in Nevada is positive news, but we think there’s more going on behind the scenes. After all, when Redhill Resources (RHR.V) announced the name change to Millennial Lithium, it included this interesting sentence in its press
release:

‘The Property that is the subject of the Agreement is not expected to be the
Company’s primary focus for the next year. ‘

This basically means Millennial Lithium has something else in the pipeline, and given the excellent relationships the company’s management team has in Argentina, we would dare to bet Millennial will acquire a salar-project in Argentina as its flagship lithium project.
