SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lithium Exploration Group (OTCBB: LEXG) (OTCQB: LEXG) today updated shareholders on the testing of its ultrasonic generator. The most recent issue with the generator was caused by dirt which had collected on the shaft during the assembly process. When the unit was hung vertically, the shaft slid down, resting on the bowl and the dirt wedged between the bowl and the shaft. As the shaft was lifted into operating position, the dirt caused the shaft to gall, not allowing the shaft to turn.
"We need to take precautions to ensure that this doesn't happen again and, while it is frustrating, it is also helpful for the design and assembly planning for all of our future units. We need to take steps to protect the shaft in future assembly and operation, but there was fortunately no damage to the bowls, impellers, or rings. We will expeditiously get back to assembly and testing," commented CEO Alex Walsh.
