RODINIA LITHIUM INC. REPORTS 285 Mg/L LITHIUM OVER 145 METRES AT THE CLAYTON VALLEY PROJECT
February 16, 2011
- INCREASED RESOURCE POTENTIAL IN THE SOUTHERN GRAVITY LOW
- LARGE MINERALIZED INTERSECTION AVERAGING 285 mg/L LITHIUM OF 145 METRES IN SPD-09
- SECTION INCLUDES PREVIOUSLY REPORTED ZONE AVERAGING 370 mg/L LITHIUM OVER 24.2 METRES, AND IS IMMEDIATELY ADJACENT
- MINERALIZED ZONE DISCOVERED IMMEDIATELY SOUTH OF CURRENT LITHIUM PRODUCING PROPERTY
Toronto, Ontario, February 16, 2011: Rodinia Lithium Inc. (“Rodinia” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: RM; OTCQX: RDNAF), is pleased to report additional results from its Clayton Valley lithium brine property located in Nevada, USA (“Clayton Valley” or the “Property”). Further analysis of drill results from the 2010 drilling campaign has led to the recognition of an extended mineralized horizon immediately adjacent to the intersection reported for drill hole SPD-09. While the targeted aquifer, believed to be a past and current producer, averaged 370 mg/L lithium (“Li”) over 30 metres (please see press release dated March 4, 2010) the significantly mineralized brine continued to a total depth of approximately 317 metres. The full intersection averages 285 mg/L Li over 146.3 metres.
William Randall, President and CEO of Rodinia, commented “we are extremely encouraged by these results as it increases the resource potential of our Clayton Valley property. This intersection reinforces our belief in the project as we approach the next phase of exploration drilling. The required drill permits are being re-submitted to include cultural and wildlife studies in order to ensure proper conservation of the land and its inherent cultural qualities. We look forward to recommencing drilling as soon as the Company receives the permits. In the meantime we will continue with our ground exploration program in preparation for an optimized and accelerated drill program.”

The intersection is composed primarily of mixed clay, sand and gravels with significant intersections of dense clay. The expected white ash marker layer that management believes to correlate with producing horizons was intersected at approximately 190 metres. Drill measured flow rates below this horizon remained high with the entire intersection averaging 57 gallons per minute, with the highest flow rate measured at approximately 285 metres.
The Project is supervised by Ray Spanjers, Rodinia’s Manager of Exploration. Mr. Spanjers is considered a qualified person, as defined by National Instrument 43-101, and has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical information in this release. According to the Company’s sampling protocol, sample size is to exceed 500 millilitres and be stored in clean, secure containers for transportation. The prepared samples are then forwarded to the ALS Laboratory Group, Environmental Division, in Fort Collins, Co (USA) for analysis. A rigorous QA/QC program is implemented consisting of regular insertion of standards and blanks to ensure laboratory integrity.About Rodinia Lithium Inc.:
Rodinia Lithium Inc. is a Canadian mineral exploration company with a primary focus on lithium exploration and development in North and South America.
