November 7, 2017 (Source) — Ultra Lithium Inc. (TSXV:ULI) (“ULI” or “the Company”) has received preliminary assay results from the October 2017 exploration work completed on the Laguna Verde, Archibara and Galan properties in the Province of Catamarca, Argentina.

Assay results indicate lithium values in the range of less than 1ppm to 1,100ppm, magnesium values 9.45ppm to 1,900ppm and potassium values are 20.5ppm to 14,100ppm. The Laguna Verde area is marked by low magnesium to lithium ratios, in the range of 0.9 to 9.8. The Company is currently in the process of verifying the field and lab data, and interpreting the significance of these results in the context of the Company’s exploration program. The assay results are presented in the table below.

Exploratory sampling was carried out by collecting surface brines and shallow sub-surface brines down to a depth of one meter.  Hand tools, such as hammers, and shovels were used to break the surface salt / sediment layers to access the brines.

The samples were assayed at SGS Laboratories in Buenos Aires, Argentina. SGS is a global chain of independent certified laboratories. The samples were assayed by SGS method ME. 113 based on SM 3120, 23rd Edition. Brine samples were collected in clean plastic bottles which were rinsed with brine before sampling. Field parameters of each sample were recorded which include: depth of water table from surface, total dissolved solids, temperature, conductivity, salinity, pH, and density.
