February 20, 2017 – Vancouver, BC – As a result of a review by the British Columbia Securities Commission, the Company is issuing the following news release to clarify its disclosure.
Lithium X Energy Corp. (“Lithium X“, or the “Company“) (TSX-V: LIX) (OTCQB: LIXXF) confirms that the Preliminary Economic Assessment (the “2011 PEA”) which was prepared in 2011 by SRK Consultants for Rodinia Lithium is not current and should not be relied upon. No current economic analysis has been prepared in relation to the Sal de Los Angeles project and there are currently no valid economic analyses relating to the Project. The 2011 PEA was based on a resource that the Company did not consider to be current when it acquired the Project and accordingly the Company retracted all references it had made to the 2011 PEA in a news release dated May 26, 2016. Despite the retraction, information from the 2011 PEA remained on the Company website and references to the 2011 PEA were made in a report prepared by Edison Investment Research which the Company commissioned. Such references have been removed and the Company reiterates that such references are retracted and are not reliable. The Company advises readers not to rely on such any previous disclosure of the 2011 PEA as it may continue to be found in the public domain. The Company will be filing an amended technical report to address certain deficiencies in the Technical Report prepared by FloSolutions (Chile) dated August 30, 2016. The resources calculation in the amended report will not change from the original report.
The technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Lithium X’s Vice-President of Project Development, William Randall, P.Geo, who is a Qualified Person as defined under NI 43-101.
