VANCOUVER, April 24, 2019 /CNW/ - Advantage Lithium Corp. (the "Company" or "Advantage Lithium") (TSX Venture: AAL) (OTCQX: AVLIF) announces that it has filed a National Instrument 43-101 independent technical report ("Technical Report") describing the updated mineral resource estimate for the Cauchari JV brine deposit located in Jujuy Province, Argentina. This report supports the Company's earlier news release of March 7th 2019. There are no material differences between the resource estimate in the Technical Report and the news release disclosure of March 7th 2019.
The updated resource estimate was prepared by FloSolutions SpA of Santiago, Chile with Mr. Frits Reidel being the independent Qualified Person ("QP") who has reviewed the technical content of this release.
As previously disclosed, based on an intensive and successful drilling campaign in 2018, the updated estimate has increased the resource to a volume of 1.9km3 of brine at an average concentration of 476 mg/l lithium equivalent to 4.8 Mt of Lithium Carbonate Equivalent ("LCE") in the Measured and Indicated ("M&I") categories. The Inferred resource is now estimated at 0.6km3 of brine at an average grade of 473 mg/l lithium equivalent to 1.5 Mt of LCE. The M&I resource will now form the basis for a Pre-Feasibility Study currently underway.
