HENDERSON, Nev., Jan. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amerilithium Corp. (OTCQB:AMEL) ("Amerilithium" or the "Company") is holding a Special Meeting of Shareholders on January 21, 2013 and advises its Shareholders to submit their votes in advance to ensure their shares are represented on the three proposals to be discussed at the Special Meeting of Shareholders (the "Meeting").

Due to the proximity of the Meeting, the Company advises shareholders to cast their votes either by Internet, mail or phone in order to make sure their vote is received and recorded before the deadline date to vote expires. Instruction for all ways to register votes can be found on the Proxy Card mailed to all shareholders. Full details of the proposals and the business to be conducted at the Meeting are included in the Notice of Special Meeting of Shareholders and Proxy Statement that accompanies the proxy card.

(Only Shareholders of record as of October 19, 2012, will have been issued both a Proxy Statement and Proxy Card, and are entitled to vote.)

The approval of at least a majority of the shareholder votes is required to approve the proposed amendments to the Company's Articles of Incorporation and it is important that all shareholders cast their votes on time or attend the Meeting and cast their votes in person. However, even if shareholders plan to attend the Meeting, they are still requested to submit their vote in advance; if they do attend the meeting after having submitted their vote, they may revoke their proxy, if they wish, and vote in person.

In short, shareholders will be asked at the meeting to authorize the Board of Directors to:

(1) Amend the Company's Articles of Incorporation for the purpose of increasing the authorized shares of common stock, par value $0.001, from 150,000,000 to 500,000,000;

(2) Amend the Articles of Incorporation to authorize up to 10,000,000 shares, par value $0.001 per share, of "blank-check" preferred stock of the Company; and

(3) To ratify the appointment of De Joya Griffith, beginning on January 1, 2013, as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2012.

All votes need to be submitted in time to be received by Friday, January 18th, 2013, such that they can be processed in advance of the Meeting, which is to be held at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time at the headquarters of Company Counsel, Lucosky Brookman LLP, located at 33 Wood Avenue South, 6th Fl, Iselin, NJ 08830.

Amerilithium's Chief Executive Officer, Matthew Worrall, commented: "Our Board of Directors has given its unanimous support for the three proposals being voted on at the Meeting. We recommend our shareholders approve these proposals to ensure the Company is able to move forward in a positive direction."

About Lithium

Lithium is a lightweight metal used in a wide range of consumer products all over the world: the medical industry uses lithium as an anti-depressant; industrial uses include glass, ceramic and porcelain enamel manufacture; and the aviation industry uses lithium in alloys. Of particular interest is the use of lithium for battery production, which has expanded significantly in recent years due to rechargeable lithium batteries being used increasingly in electrical tools and in the rapidly expanding portable electronics market.  Furthermore, the next generation of hybrid and electric vehicles are being designed to use high-capacity lithium-ion batteries as environmentally-friendly fuel alternatives, while the Obama administration has introduced $5 billion in funding and incentives for the development of a secure, domestic battery industry with special focus on lithium-ion batteries.
