  16. 16. CORPORATE STRATEGY Modular Approach Reduces Capital Needs Spodumene concentrator plants in combination Centralized processing facility optional and can be built with strategic partners Low CAPEX economic model Advance Exploration and Broaden Basket of Projects Through Partnerships Proximity to Infrastructure is Essential Low Cost Rail and Seaborne Transport Network Power and Personnel Manufacturing and Industrial Centers Advance Complementary Projects Acquire lithium projects in a “GOOD” location Resource Acquisition, Consolidation and Development Initiative
  17. 17. CANADIAN OPERATIONS MAVIS Historic Resource High grade lithium intercepts in past drilling Potential for expansion of shallow deposits along strike RALEIGH High grade intercepts for lithium, tantalum, cesium + rubidium Shallow dipping pegmatites (beneficial to resource development) Potential for rapid definition of maiden resource through drilling FORGAN High grade surface showings on 6 pegmatites Extensive soil geochemical signature + Drill ready targets Historic drilling reports excellent continuity
  18. 18. STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP WITH PIONEER RESOURCES Pioneer has the option to earn an initial 51% in each Project by expending $1.5 million on each Project. International Lithium Corp. have entered into option agreements on the Mavis and Raleigh Lake pegmatite projects to an established Australian exploration company.
  19. 19. MAVIS AND RALEIGH – OUTSTANDING LOCATION • 10 kilometers from Trans-Canada Highway • 300km to Thunder Bay, Ontario • Major Rail Network • Electric Power Grid • Skilled Labor Force
  21. 21. EXPLORATION OBJECTIVE THE OBJECTIVE IS TO DISCOVER AND DEFINE PEGMATITES WITH SUITABLE LITHIUM GRADE, CHEMISTRY AND THICKNESS; NEAR SURFACE AND PROXIMAL TO GOOD INFRASTRUCTURE; TO SUPPORT A VIABLE MINING OPERATION. The Mavis and Raleigh Pegmatites exhibit: 1.) Good grade and chemistry; and 2.) Are well situated relative to infrastructure providing logistical advantages. The objective of the current exploration programs are to discover a pegmatite of suitable volume to be mined economically. Rather than a single large 'standalone' pegmatite, smaller multiple pegmatites can be combined into a unified mine plan.

  24. 24. SPODUMENE CONCENTRATOR (Example*) A Spodumene pegmatite is basically a coarse grained granite with environmentally neutral attributes. A processing facility to produce spodumene concentrate from pegmatite is relatively simple and significantly less environmentally impactful with smaller zones of disturbance than other types of mining operations. The concentrate is shipped to a processing facility off site for further refinement or sold as a final product into the market. * The projects presented herein have had NO economic analysis or report performed on them and NO development is planned or supported at this time.

  36. 36. ACLARE • ILC Drilling extends strike length of Aclare Pegmatite to 550m • Pegmatite intersection of 2.23% Li2O over 23.3m including 3.43% Li2O over 6.0m drill width (true thickness is yet unknown) reported. * The historical resource estimate was completed prior to the implementation of NI43-101 and does not conform to any resource category as defined by the CIM Standards and Definitions for mineral resources and reserve estimates. A Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to verify the information regarding the historical resource estimate and therefore the issuer is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources and the historical estimate should not be relied upon. Details regarding the historical estimate can be found in the issuer’s news release dated January 31, 2012. 20 metre wide pegmatite delineated at Aclare with a historical resource estimate of 570,000 tonnes grading 1.5% Li2O reported by previous operators.* Property Wide Drill History: • 69 drill holes for 4,493m at Aclare • 32 drill holes for 1,481m all other areas Highlights Avalonia Project significantly under-explored
  37. 37. AVALONIA LITHIUM PROJECT - MOYLISHA PROSPECT HIGH GRADE BOULDER FIELD DISCOVERY *Grab samples are by definition selective and are unlikely to represent average grades on the property.  4.59%, 3.45% and 3.27% Li2O grab samples* The high grade lithium and extensive boulder occurrence within such a small area represents a highly prospective zone along strike from a previously identified pegmatite indicating a potentially sizable, yet to be discovered buried pegmatite. THE UNDER-EXPLORED NATURE AND PROSPECTIVITY READILY TRANSLATES TO THE ENTIRE PROPERTY
  38. 38. AVALONIA PLANNED EXPLORATION PROGRAM US$ 1M anticipated 12 month budget by strategic partner Ganfeng Lithium to continue to define and develop prospects project wide Primary focus in 2017 is to trench high priority areas at Moylisha followed up by drilling. Additional work to include:  Quantify and prioritize potential of other occurrences along 50km trend;  Further develop Aclare; and  Test and determine efficacy of new exploration techniques.
