Rodinia Lithium Corp
TSX-RM   Nasdaq-RDNAF
  • BLM HAS CONDITIONALLY APPROVED RODINIA’S PLAN OF OPERATIONS PERMITTING ADDITIONAL DRILLING IN CLAYTON VALLEY, NEVADA
  • PLAN OF OPERATIONS OUTLINES A DRILL PROGRAM WITHIN  A SOUTHERN VALLEY TRENCH WHERE HIGHER LITHIUM CONCENTRATIONS MAY BE FOUND AS A POTENTIAL EXTENSION OF AQUIFERS  INTERSECTED IN PREVIOUS DRILLING FURTHER NORTH AND ADJACENT TO THE NEIGHBORING SILVER PEAK LITHIUM PRODUCING OPERATION
  • BLM WILL NOW SOLICIT PUBLIC COMMENT ON THE PLAN OF OPERATIONS
  • RODINIA HAS COMMISSIONED AN ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT AS REQUIRED UNDER THE NEPA THAT MAY FORM PART OF THE PUBLIC COMMENT PROCESS
Toronto, Canada, March 1, 2012: Rodinia Lithium Inc. (“Rodinia” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: RM; OTCQX: RDNAF) is pleased to announce that it has received confirmation that the Plan of Operations (“PoO”) submitted by the Company’s US subsidiary, Donnybrook Platinum Resources, Inc., in respect of Rodinia’s wholly owned Clayton Valley lithium-brine project, meets the content requirements as determined by the Bureau of Land Management’s (“BLM”) Tonopah Office in Tonopah, Nevada, USA.
William Randall, Rodinia’s President & CEO, commented, “We are extremely pleased to have received this confirmation from the BLM and to once again be in a position to start planning and moving ahead with our much anticipated exploration program in Clayton Valley.  We intend to resume drilling once the Environmental Assessment and public comment period are complete with the intention of delineating a lithium brine resource in the southern trench that extends the length of our southern claim package.”
EPG Inc., environmental consultants out of Phoenix, Arizona, have been commissioned to complete an Environmental Assessment (“EA”), which will address specific issues as required under the National Environmental Protection Act (“NEPA”).  Concurrently, or as part of the EA, the PoO will be posted for a 30-day public comment period and will address public concerns.  A meeting to discuss the NEPA requirements has been set for Tuesday, March 6th, at 9:30 AM between the Company and BLM.  Further information regarding the process will be communicated to the public following this meeting.
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.
Rodinia Lithium Inc. is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company with a primary focus on Lithium exploration and development in North and South America.  The Company is also actively exploring the commercialization of a significant Potash co-product that is expected to be recoverable through the lithium harvesting process.
Rodinia’s Salar de Diablillos lithium-brine project in Salta, Argentina, contains a recoverable resource of 2.82 million tonnes lithium carbonate equivalent and 11.27 million tonnes potassium chloride equivalent.  The project contains a recoverable inferred resource of 952,553,000 m3 grading 556 mg/L lithium and 6,206 mg/L potassium. Throughout 2011, Rodinia will focus on continuing to develop the Diablillos project by completing additional drilling and advancing through scoping study.
The Company also holds 100% mineral rights to approximately 70,000 acres in Nevada’s lithium-rich Clayton Valley in Esmeralda County, and is currently in the process of assessing the size, quality and processing alternatives of this deposit.  The Clayton Valley project is located in the only known lithium-brine bearing salt lake in North America, and looks to represent the only new source for domestic lithium carbonate supply.
The Projects are supervised by Ray Spanjers, Rodinia’s Manager of Exploration. Mr. Spanjers is considered a Qualified Person, as defined by National Instrument 43‐101.
