Lithium Corporation Acquires BC Sugar Property

RENO, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Lithium Corporation (OTCBB: LTUM) (the "Company", or "Lithco") is pleased to announce that it has recently acquired a new Graphite (BC Sugar) prospect in the Shuswap area of British Columbia, in an under-explored area. In addition to the acquired claim, Lithco has also staked another four claims, to bring the total area to be explored by the Company to 3,405.77 acres (1,378.27 hectares). Although graphite has been identified locally in marbles, it has become apparent that graphite is also hosted here in quartz, biotite/mica gneisses, and also in calc-silicate gneisses. The host rocks at BC Sugar are similar to the host rocks in the area of the Crystal Graphite deposit 55 miles (90 kms) to the Southeast, where Lithium Corporation holds the Mt Heimdal block of claims.

The Company made an outright purchase of a 100% interest in the prospect in exchange for 250,000 shares of Lithco, and there are no further encumbrances or other obligations relating to the purchase.

Lithium Corporation has mobilized a field crew to the prospect to initiate geological mapping & prospecting immediately.

In addition to the BC Sugar property, the Company continues work on its Fish Lake Valley prospect, and its San Emidio property, and continues to generate and evaluate other prospects. The Company anticipates that the next round of drilling at Fish Lake Valley will commence in July, subject to contractor availability.
