Amerilithium Q1 Presentation

  1. 1. Q1 2010
  2. 2. MISSION STATEMENT US President Barack Obama stated that his; “Number one priority when I get into office (will be) finding the new driver of our economy... There’s no better driver that pervades all aspects of our economy than a new energy economy.” US President Barack Obama Headquartered in the US lithium heartland of Nevada, AmeriLithium is dedicated to providing secure and clean renewable energy solutions for America and a changing planet. To reach its goals, the Company has assembled an exceptional team of proven management professionals with extensive experience across the mining, technology and energy industries. At AmeriLithium, we aim to take full advantage of the unparalleled opportunities presented by the ever-growing demand for lithium powered technology through the exploration of the world’s richest mineral deposits. AmeriLithium welcomes the challenge of pioneering energy alternatives that provide relief from controlling oil markets while leading the way in growing a new domestic lithium marketplace that is further supported by incentives from the US government. And with total identified lithium resources increasing significantly between 2009 and 2010 (over 280% increase in the US and over 75% in other countries)1 and market experts calling the outlook for lithium consumption to 2013 optimistic,2 the time for decisive action – and AmeriLithium – is now. AmeriLithium is a publicly traded (NASDAQ OTC BB: AMEL), 1 US Geological Survey Mineral Commodities Summaries for 2009 & 2010 2 Roskill Information Services website, Feb. 26, 2010 (Roskill is among the world’s leading providers of independent mining company committed to progressively information on international metals and minerals markets) growing into the largest and leading American player in the global lithium industry. Through its aggressive acquisition and exploration strategy, AmeriLithium has already amassed one of the largest North American lithium portfolios of any player in the industry (~670,000 acres), including a project adjacent to the only lithium producing plant in the US. 2
  3. 3. WHAT IS LITHIUM? “New plug-in hybrids roll off our assembly lines, but they will run on batteries made in Korea. Well I do not accept a future where the jobs and industries of tomorrow take root beyond our borders – and I know you don’t either. It is time for America to lead again.” US President Barack Obama Lithium has been described as the “New Oil” due to its potential for shifting our energy usage and storage patterns away from dependence on petroleum – particularly foreign oil. Lithium’s unrivalled potential for satisfying the energy goals of the modern world and powering the needs of future generations has made it the backbone of the Obama administration’s green agenda, receiving significant government funding and subsidies for its continued development. A more scientific description is that lithium is the lightest metal on the periodic table. With a density of around half that of water, lithium is an extremely light, highly chemically active alkali metal, and the first element in Group 1 of the periodic table – the alkali metals group. Due to its highly reactive nature, lithium does not occur as a pure element in nature, but rather is found locked in compound with other minerals in mineral deposits: brines, Pegmatite rocks and Hectorite clays. While these brine deposits and hard rock formations are the key sources of lithium throughout the world, Pegmatite and Hectorite lithium deposits require open-pit or underground mining methods and further processing to unlock the valuable mineral within, making them less economic. In contrast, lithium found in high concentration levels in brine is economically sourced at or below the surface of Salars, Continental Brines, Geothermal Brines and Oilfield Brines with little environmental impact. Once at the surface, the lithium concentration is then increased through a process of evaporation. In the US, the hot, dry conditions ideal for cost effective brine-based lithium production occur in Nevada, where lithium is found in abundance – and where AmeriLithium is headquartered and holds property adjacent to the nation’s only lithium producing plant. 4

National Research Council, 2009 due to rechargeable lithium batteries being used increasingly in electrical tools and, more important, in the rapidly expanding portable electronics market:1 mobile phones, mp3 players, laptop computers, digital cameras, games, watches, BlackBerrys, and any other device that demands an energy source marked by durability, portability, affordability, high storage capacity, and efficient, reliable power output. 6
  5. 5. LITHIUM OVERVIEW RESOURCES LITHIUM OVERVIEW: RESOURCES In their 2010 Mineral Commodity Summaries, the US Geological Survey (USGS) reported that the United IDENTIFIED RESOURCES* States was a major lithium chemical producer. The report also showed a significant increase in the nation’s identified lithium resources* total at 2.5 million tons (up from 760,000 tons in 2009). Resources whose location, grade, quality, and quantity are known or estimated from specific geologic evidence. Identified resources include economic, marginally economic, and subeconomic components. At the same time, the US remains the world’s leading importer of lithium minerals and compounds due To reflect varying degrees of geologic certainty, these economic divisions can be subdivided into to the combination of having only a single active lithium mine while the majority of the world’s lithium measured, indicated, and inferred. resources are located on foreign soil, including:1 Of the three key players controlling the lithium industry, only one is actively producing lithium from Estimated Current Lithium Reserves Reserves* (in metric tonnes) domestic US resources: Chemetall Foote Corporation, a subsidiary of Rockwood Holdings, Inc.

With about 23 million tons of identified lithium resources being located in countries other than the US, and increasing lithium demand from growing Asian markets and manufacturers, the time is now for American companies such as AmeriLithium to securely position the nation as a major player in this emerging market, whether producing domestic resources or secure resources elsewhere. INCREASING LITHIUM EXPLORATION The USGS also reported that, in spite of the recent economic downturn, a host of new companies had explored for lithium in 2009, leasing or staking claims in countries around the world.1 While many of these claims were made in secure and politically stable regions such as Nevada, Canada, Argentina and Australia, other regions represent a whole new concern over resource nationalism, such as Bolivia, which has the world’s biggest reserves of lithium. As the New York Times stated, “Simply put, global automakers and battery makers need to ensure a steady supply of lithium to power the expected electric-car revolution, but Bolivia’s populist government and its embrace of resource nationalism raises a lot of concerns about access to the country’s mineral wealth.” 2 DOMESTIC VS. FOREIGN PRODUCTION With the majority of the world’s lithium found on foreign soil, so too the production of lithium is primarily based in foreign countries, with Chile being the largest producing country. 8

  10. 10. AMERILITHIUM CORP. AMERILITHIUM CORP. NEVADA PROJECT NEVADA PROJECT PAYMASTER CANYON, ESMERALDA COUNTY, NEVADA AmeriLithium’s domestic Paymaster Project represents a 5,880-acre claim block adjacent to the Clayton Valley playa, where lithium-rich brines and evaporates have been accumulating for more than 30,000 years, resulting in the highest lithium content found in any brines tested by the US Geological Survey (USGS) in southwestern US playas and basins.1 Clayton Valley is home to the only US-based lithium producing plant, operated by neighboring Chemetall Foote Corporation, a subsidiary of Rockwood Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ROC | Market Cap: $1.75B). The plant has been in production since 1967, producing an estimated 50 million kg (55,000+ tons) of lithium to date from the region’s rich brines.2 In light of the Paymaster Project’s close proximity to the Clayton Valley production, an exploration program of surveys and drilling has been recommended3 to determine the potential of AmeriLithium’s holdings to tap the proven brine formations. The Paymaster Project itself is surrounded by the Montezuma Range and mountain ranges containing Tertiary rhyolites (the volcanic equivalent of granite) considered to be the most lithium-rich rhyolites in the world (MacDonald et. al; 1992).4 The movement and evaporation of the region’s water replenishes lithium-rich clays, lithium inclusions in halite (naturally occurring salt), and economic grades of brine-based lithium considered to be in the 100 to 300 ppm range3 with the USGS indicating some concentrations in the Clayton Valley area reaching as high as 1,000 ppm.5 18

These two formations were identified by the Alberta Geological Survey (AGS) as containing formation waters containing potentially economic amounts of lithium.1 The AGS recommended further analysis of the formation waters for lithium, stating that the lithium contents are similar to those of the only US-based lithium plant in Clayton Valley, Nevada.2 The total resource estimate for potentially economic lithium present in the two formations is 567,690 tons,1 which is approximately 69% of the 826,000+ tons of lithium estimated to exist in Clayton Valley, Nevada (I.A. Kunasz of the American Institute of Mining, 1975).3 CONCENTRATIONS SIMILAR TO CLAYTON VALLEY The AGS singled out formation waters containing high concentrations of dissolved lithium where rock porosity and permeability would allow production. In the Leduc Formation, reef thicknesses exceed 980 feet in places (based on 88 existing wells and 3,768 core analyses), while the carbonate platform in the Beaverhill varies in thickness from over 490 feet in the south to roughly 160 feet in the northwest (based on 183 existing wells and 18,256 core analyses).1 AGS findings on both formations show concentrations exceeding 100 mg/l with a maximum concentration of 130 mg/l occurring in the Beaverhill Lake formation.2 22

AUSTRALIAN PROJECT AUSTRALIAN PROJECT BARE ROCKS, HOFFMAN HILLS & NORMANS LAKE PROJECTS LAKE DUMBLEYUNG, WAGIN SALT LAKES REGION, WESTERN AUSTRALIA AmeriLithium’s three Australian plays cover 43,000+ Acres around and abutting Lake Dumbleyung, where a 2007-2008 survey for Reward Minerals Ltd1 reported the presence of salt lake brine with a lithium concentration of 530 mg/liter (by way of comparison, the only US-based lithium producing plant – operated by Chemetall Foote Corporation in Nevada – originally began operation at 400 mg/ liter). Lying within Western Australia’s South West Mineral Field, the AmeriLithium plays represent an area identified as: benefitting from a pro-mining Australian government stance and legislation rich in brine deposits while having established infrastructure to support the transport of extracted lithium ideally situated for export to emerging Asian markets and particularly China, whose manufacturing economy accounted for around 1/3 of lithium demand in 2008 AmeriLithium currently holds three exploration licenses for the region, comprised of 55 graticule blocks. All holdings are located within a 15.5 mile radius of Lake Dumbleyung, being placed upon salt lake systems with favorable drainage systems. Major neighboring Australian players include Reward Minerals Ltd and Venus Resources Ltd, both having declared an interest in the Lake Dumbleyung region after carrying out surveys and testing of the area that identified the high soluble lithium values in brine deposits as well as the potential for lithium- bearing brines from draining Archaean granites at the western confluence of an extensive catchment area. AMERILITHIUM’S THREE AUSTRALIAN PLAYS Lying immediately to the east of and abutting Lake Dumbleyung, the Bare Rocks Project covers a salt lake system rich in mineral deposits. The area was the site of Reward Minerals’ survey that identified the presence of salt lake brine with a lithium concentration of 530 mg/liter (530 ppm)1, making this site extremely significant for the rich down-drainage systems coming from the lake. Roughly 15.5 miles south of Lake Dumbleyung, the Hoffman Hills Project covers a salt lake system immediately interpreted as comprising the same brine drainage outlets as found at Bare Rocks, making it an equally significant site for exploration. Located 15.5 miles north of Lake Dumbleyung, the Normans Lake Project represents another salt and drainage lake system expected to yield high mineral deposits, making it another considerable prospect for lithium extraction. AmeriLithium’s three Australian plays lie within the South West Mineral Field, a region representing a pro-mining government stance, rich brine deposits, established transportation infrastructure, and an ideal location for exporting lithium to emerging Asian markets and particularly China. 26
