LAS VEGAS, Jan. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- First Liberty Power Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: FLPC) www.firstlibertypower.com announced today that it has signed a letter of intent to acquire a 100% interest in the Clayton Wash Basin Lithium Claim ("CW Claim") in Nevada, from GeoXplor Corp.
The CW Claim is comprised of 3,000 acres within a basin located 12 miles southeast of Chemetall Foote Corporation's Silver Peak Mine, the only lithium brine producer in the United States. The claim block is situated on the east flank of the Montezuma Range, which is composed of a lithium enriched rhyolite tuff. Sampling by the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology indicate the rhyolite tuffs contain up to 228 ppm of lithium, with chemical data indicating the lithium is being leached from the rhyolite tuffs into the adjacent basins.
Don Nicholson, President and CEO, comments "We are very pleased to be able to enter into this LOI, as we believe that the CW Claim provides an important strategic addition to our existing Lida Valley property. The geological merits of the Clayton Wash Basin further enhance the potential for us to become an important US producer of this important metal, offering a tremendous opportunity to our shareholders as we move forward. Upon entry into a definitive agreement with GeoXplor, we will provide additional details on the property, and our exploration plans for it."
