LITHIUM CORPORATION BUYS INTEREST IN HUGHES LANDS
Las Vegas, NV – Apr 29, 2014 –Lithium Corporation (OTCQB: LTUM) (the "Company", or “Lithco”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired an indirect 25% interest in a number of patented mining claims that spring from the once vast holdings of Howard Hughes.
Lithco participated in the formation of Summa LLC. (Summa) a new private Nevada Limited Liability company that holds 88 fee-title patented lode claims, which cover approximately 1,191.3 acres of prospective mineral lands. Lithium Corporation has recently signed a Joint Operating Agreement with the other participants to govern the conduct of Summa, and the development of the lands. Lithium Corporation’s president Tom Lewis has been named as a “Managing Member” of Summa.
The Hughes lands are situated in six discrete prospect areas in Nevada, the most notable of which being the Tonopah block where Summa holds 56 claims that cover approximately 770 acres in the heart of the historic mining camp where over 1.8 million ounces of gold and 174 million ounces of silver were produced predominately in the early 1900’s. The Hughes claims include a number of the prolific past producers in Tonopah, such as the Belmont, the Desert Queen, and the Midway mines. In addition there are also claims in the area of the past producing Klondyke East mining district, which is to the south of Tonopah, and at the town of Belmont (not to be confused with the Belmont claim in Tonopah), Nevada, another notable silver producer from the 1800’s, which is roughly 40 miles to the northeast of Tonopah.
In the general area of Lithium Corporation’s newest acquisition, West Kirkland Mining has recently announced that it has completed a $29.2 million dollar financing, the proceeds of which were used to purchase a 75% interest in Allied Nevada Gold Corporation’s Tonopah properties. West Kirkland also has the option to purchase the remaining 25% interest by paying Allied Nevada a further $10 million dollars on or before Oct 23
, 2016. West Kirkland has recently compiled an updated NI-43-101 resource on the Hasbrouck, and Three Hills prospects which are roughly 5.5, and 2 miles respectively from Summa’s Tonopah claim block and it is West Kirkland’s intent to advance these properties to a Pre-Feasibility study and initiate mine permitting.
While it presently appears that only one of the six blocks may be prospective for hosting lithium mineralization, overall the package was a unique opportunity that the company anticipates will create significant value over the mid to longer term. Lithium Corporation’s president Tom Lewis recently remarked, “I am quite pleased we were able to secure an interest in Summa LLC., and as a result have an interest in a significant land package that at least in part has a strong history of mineral production. It is also quite an honor to play a role in the ongoing development of claims which were once controlled by arguably one of the most prominent capitalists of the twentieth century. It is the Company’s intention to immediately begin compiling historical, geological and production data, in an effort to ascertain what sort of opportunities might be present in the lands.”
