  5. 5. Balkans Projects (Serbia) Summary: Located in the Balkan Peninsula in SE Europe, Serbia occupies a region that has been famous since ancient times for mining and mineral exploration. However, it is only in recent years that exploration programs have begun to reveal the true mineral potential of the country. By today’s standards Serbia is considered underexplored, with a prospective area of moderate size and a wide spectrum of mineral deposits reflecting the diverse geological environments that are present. Ultra Lithium is seeking to identify potential targets in Serbia that could host a new Lithium resource in the form of Jadarite. (A combination of Lithium and Boron.) Jadarite is a first-seen Na-borosilicate mineral with high B (47,2% B2O3) and Li (7,3% LiO2) content, first discovered in late 2004 in the Jadar basin, situated in western Serbia. The mineral was officially recognized by the International Mineralogical Association in 2006. Ultra Lithium has been granted seven exploration licenses in the Republic of Serbia - through its wholly-owned local subsidiary, Ultra Balkans doo - for the Koceljeva, Trnava, Valjevo East, Preljina, Ladjevci , Kragujevac and Blace mineral prospects by the Ministry of Environment, Mining and Spatial Planning. The successful exploration license applications are located within well defined basins and cover an area of approximately 643 square km in total.5
  6. 6. Balkans Projects (Serbia) Summary (Continued): The Company is now initiating its multidisciplinary exploration program that includes field reconnaissance, mapping, geochemical sampling and geophysical surveys. The various geophysical methods include gravity, ground-magnetic and magneto-telluric surveys, which will be used to interpret basin geometry and identify potential lithium and boron bearing horizons. Given the anticipated rapid advance of the exploration program and pending favorable results, the Company expects to initiate exploration drilling in 2012.6
  7. 7. Koceljeva PropertyThe Koceljeva mineral prospect is situated approximately 60 km southwestof Belgrade in the Municipalities of Vladimirci and Sabac. It covers an areaof almost 66 square km. The Koceljeva property is situated approximately 20 km east of Rio Tinto’s Jadar Li-B deposit, (125.3Mt @ 1.8% Li2O & 13.1% B2O3). Rio- Tinto has committed to spending $27 million to complete a pre- feasability study. The Koceljeva property hosts a distinct sedimentary sequence which the Company believes to be geologically correlated to Rio Tinto’s Jadar deposit. Valjevo East Property Valjevo East is a highly ranked mineral prospect which covers an area of approximately 78 square km and is located approximately 60 km south of Belgrade in the Municipalities of Ljig and Lazarevac, Serbia.  It is situated adjacent to Pan Global Resources’ Valjevo and Ljig mineral prospects.7
  8. 8. Ladjevci, Preljina & Trnava Properties The Ladevci, Preljina and Trnava mineral prospects cover an area of approximately 100 square km each and are located in the central part of Serbia, approximately 100 km south of Belgrade.  All tenements are situated in the NW-SE trending Morava depression (more than 1,000 square km in size) that hosts a promising basin system.  All tenements will be explored for their lithium and boron potential, as the Morava depression has several features that warrant further investigation: - It hosts a promising basin system with favorable lithologies that have been identified by past exploration efforts of the Yugoslavian Geological Survey. - The basin has an interesting tectonic signature, while Gravity lows have been identified during Ultra’s desktop studies.  Rio Tinto currently holds the Janok mineral prospect, situated in the SE part of the Morava depression, where a recent drilling exploration program was implemented.8
  9. 9. Kragujevac PropertyThe Kragujevac mineral prospect covers an area of approximately100 square km and is located approximately 70 km south ofBelgrade and less than 10 km north of the town of Kragujevac inthe Sumadija District, Central Serbia.  The Kragujevac property hosts a distinct sedimentary sequence which the Company believes to be geologically correlated to Jadar deposit. Blace Property  The Blace property is 99 sq. km in size and hosts a distinct sedimentary sequence. Ultra is the 100% owner and operator of the Koceljeva, Trnava, Valjevo East, Preljina, Ladevci, Kragujevac, and Blace Exploration Licenses.9

  15. 15. South Big Smokey Valley (100% owned, Nevada) Ultra Lithium Inc’s South Big Smokey Valley is located in Esmeralda County, Nevada 16 miles north of the Silver Peak Mine in Clayton Valley. Size:  364 placer claims (7,280 acres). Geology The project shares a similar geology and weathering history to Clayton Valley. The north end of Clayton Valley hosts Chemetall Foote Corporation’s Silver Peak Mine, the only lithium brine producer in North America. Mine production comes from a lithium enriched brine located below the surface. The plant has been in production since 1967 and is designed to produce up to 1.2 million kilograms of lithium per annum.15
  16. 16. South Big Smokey Valley (Continued) History: Commencing in the 1970s the United States Geological Survey (“USGS”) carried out a series of regional reconnaissance programs including sampling and drilling on the edges of the Big Smokey Valley. Gravity surveys over the region also identified various structures that may have created topography favorable for evaporite accumulation and subsequent traps, which potentially could host commercially viable mineral rich brines. A study by Price, Lechler, Lear and Giles in 2000, suggests that lithium was released into the Clayton Valley basin by the weathering of high-lithium-bearing rocks. Similar lithologies and weathering history exist in the adjacent Big Smokey Valley.16
