First Lithium Delineating Alberta Brine Targets
Vancouver, British Columbia CANADA, August 24, 2009 /FSC/ - First Lithium Resources Inc. (TSX - VX: MCI), (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has engaged the services of Mr. Michael Dufresne, M.Sc.,P. Geo., and President of APEX Geoscience Ltd. to commence research on the Company's `Valleyview' Property in Alberta. The study's purpose is to delineate optimal targets for lithium bearing brine sampling and analysis. Results are expected within two to four weeks, at which time the Company will move toward securing the recommended samples for compositional analysis.
The Company currently holds 41 MAIM permits covering a number of reported lithium showings in basinal brines of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, in Alberta. These permits mostly cover an area outlined by the Alberta Research Council and Alberta Geological Survey (ARC/AGS Bulletin 62) as having potential for a large resource of lithium within formation waters. The Alberta Research Council and Alberta Geological Survey provide an " historical resource estimate " (ARC/AGS Bulletin 62, page 48) which is not NI 43-101 compliant, of about 515,000 tonnes of lithium; or about 2.44 billion lbs of Li2O. First Lithium's nearly 1,000,000 acres covers a large portion of the area described in the report.(Note: a qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current mineral resources, the issuer is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources and the historical estimate should not be relied upon.)
