Marc Morin, Ultra Lithium’s President & Chief Executive Officer said:
“Ultra is actively exploring all seven of its exploration licenses in Serbia. The interpretations from our initial AMT surveys will help prioritize our proposed drill program in Serbia. The area is highly prospective for lithium, boron and jadarite mineralization and we are happy with the progress of the exploration campaign thus far.”
On July 23, 2012, geophysical crews commenced a comprehensive audio-magnetotelluric survey (AMT) on the Company’s 643 km² land package in Southern Serbia. The data is now being used to interpret basin geometry and identify potential lithium and boron bearing horizons.
The geophysical surveys are part of a Phase I exploration program designed to delineate drill targets by carrying out geophysical surveys, geological mapping and soil sampling. Geophysical surveys and interpretations are being carried out by Beijing Explo-Tech Engineering Co., (“BETEC”) of Beijing, China. The survey commenced over previously mapped alteration zones and has been expanded to cover the remainder of the property.
It is anticipated that a total of 19 lines of AMT measurements totaling over 200 km in length, with 800 AMT measuring points, will be completed by October 2012. To complement the AMT survey results, the Company also plans to acquire additional gravity measurements at the same time.
