FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                OTCQB: LTUM

Elko, NV – August 16, 2016 – Lithium Corporation [OTCQB – LTUM] “the Company” is pleased to announce that it has recently received the results from American Lithium’s initial sampling program at Fish Lake Valley, where American Lithium Corp. is earning an 80% interest by making staged cash & stock payments, and incurring $1.1 million worth of exploration expenditures over the next three years.

Six shallow auger holes were completed on the playa, with the following results:

Lithium – ranging from 24.6 to 389 mg/L – average 151.66 mg/L
Boron – ranging from 64.7 to 2210 mg/L – average 665.11 mg/L
Potassium – ranging from 185 mg/L to 5650 mg/L – average 2223.59 mg/L
Magnesium – ranging from 0.3 to 96.9 mg/L – average 27.06 mg/L

Mr. Brian Goss remarked, “We are very pleased with the results obtained from the initial program – the geochemical results of this auger program continue to support Fish Lake Valley as a top tier lithium-in-brine exploration project in the United States. The two highest lithium values were step-outs from the anomaly previously outlined by Lithium Corporation, were both in excess of 300 mg/L, and are very good indicators that the project may host economically significant lithium. We are encouraged that magnesium, an element that is significantly detrimental to lithium extraction continues to appear to be inconsequential here.”

Also the Company recently formed Lithium Royalty Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary that it intends to use as a vehicle to create a portfolio of lithium and other battery related metals royalties. To that end Lithium Royalty staked and optioned off the North Big Smokey property to 1069934 Nevada Ltd., and its parent company 1069934 BC Ltd. Under the terms of the deal, 1069934 has purchased a 100% working interest in the property, for $10,000 cash, 300,000 shares, and reimbursement of all fees and expenses incurred while acquiring title to the property. Lithium Corporation had previously conducted early stage exploration on the property comprised of both sediment & brine sampling, and a gravity geophysical survey. Lithium Royalty Corp. retains a 2.5% Net Smelter Royalty on the property, one half (1.25%) of which can be purchased by 1069934 for $1,000,000.
