Lithium Corporation (OTCQB: LTUM) (the "Company", or “Lithco”) is pleased to announce that it has recently received approval from the Bureau of Land Management for its permit application to drill on its San Emidio Lithium property.

The Company recently reported that it had discovered Lithium enriched brine mineralization in the immediate subsurface on its San Emidio prospect of up to 66.4 mg/L. This lithium anomaly occurs along an as of yet poorly defined trend which is presently about 1.6 miles long.

Ground conditions permitting, the Company intends to begin drilling this prospect in late January, and has already selected a drill contractor to perform the work. Lithium Corporation is looking forward to 2012, and has plans to further explore its Salt Wells and Fish Lake Valley prospects as well as continuing with its generative exploration program.
