First Liberty Power Corp. Completes Lithium Property Exploration Field Work

Stocks in this article: FLPC

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- First Liberty Power Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: FLPC) www.firstlibertypower.com announces the completion of the field work component of the controlled source audio magnetotellurics / magentotellurics ("CSAMT/MT") survey, part of the Company's geophysical exploration program on its Esmeralda County, Nevada, Lida Valley Lithium property.

Mr. Nicholson commented, "The results of the survey will be interpreted by Hasbrouk Geophysics and will be forwarded to the Company in several weeks' time. Any electromagnetic anomalies discovered by the survey will be followed up, and it is my hope we will be able to create a detailed drilling program utilizing data from both the previous Gravity Survey and the current CSAMT/MT survey."

The first phase of the exploration program on the Lida Valley property was a two-part gravity survey, successfully completed this past summer. The data generated by the gravity surveys indicate several areas of increased bedrock depths or lower bedrock elevations. These areas may be conducive for concentration of lithium bearing brines.

The CSAMT/MT survey will assist in determining if conductive zones, potentially indicative of lithium-bearing brines, are present and continuous within the basin. CSAMT/MT is a geophysical method commonly used in the exploration industry. It determines the earth's two dimensional subsurface electrical resistivity distribution by measuring time-dependent variations of the Earth's natural electric and magnetic fields, as well as the electric and magnetic fields resulting from high frequency-induced waves. The resistivity information is generally used to determine subsurface geologic and hydrogeologic conditions and structure. The CSAMT/MT method is designed to investigate from depths of approximately 20 - 750 metres.

The Lida Valley property shares a similar geology and weathering history to nearby Clayton Valley (where the Company recently entered into an LOI to acquire an additional 3,000 acre claim block), and is located within 15 miles of the Montezuma Peak, which is believed to be the source of the region's lithium. The north end of Clayton Valley hosts Chemetall Foote Corporation's Silver Peak mine, the only lithium brine producer in the United States. Mine production comes from lithium enriched sub-surface brine located. This plant has been in production since 1967 and is designed to produce up to 1.2 million kilograms of lithiumhydroxide per annum.
