    American Lithium Finalizes Water Rights/Land Acquisition and Confirms Strong Treasury Position

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Lithium Corp. (TSXV: LI) (OTCQB: LIACF) (Frankfurt: 5LA1) (“American Lithium” or the “Company”) a leading lithium exploration and development operator is pleased to report the completion of a Real Estate Property Purchase Agreement to acquire over 300 acres of privately held lands and the accompanying 1,176 acre-feet of water rights pursuant to a previously signed Letter of Intent (See Company news release dated July 27th, 2020). Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, $300,000 USD has now been paid to the vendor, leaving $1 million to be paid in equal annual installments over the next four years. The land and water acquisition provides a private land holding on which the Company is preparing to develop a pilot plant to continue process evaluation work for the Company’s wholly owned TLC lithium project near Tonopah, Nevada. American Lithium further reports that as a result of recent share purchase warrant and stock option exercises, the Company has $6.7 million CDN in working capital.American Lithium CEO, Michael Kobler, states “"The goal of the lithium recovery process that is and continues to be developed for the TLC project is to be as water efficient as is practically possible. That said, there is makeup water required, and our goal with this purchase is to supply all the makeup water for our project. Our target is to have minimal impact on the land and water of the area around the project, and our efficient lithium recovery process and water rights are aligned with this goal."Stock Option GrantAmerican Lithium also announces that, pursuant to its Stock Option Plan, it has granted stock options to certain management and consultants to purchase an aggregate of 4,800,000 common shares of the Company at a price of $1.28 per share for a period of 5 years from the grant date. This stock option grant is subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.About the TLC PropertyThe TLC sedimentary lithium discovery is an exploration and development project located 12 kilometres northwest of Tonopah, Nev., and easily accessible by paved highway. Work to date has identified a 5.3-million-tonne measured and indicated lithium carbonate equivalent resource, with an additional 1.7 million tonnes inferred, placing the Company's resource amongst a handful of potential lithium deposits in Western North America capable of development. TLC is near surface, relatively flat-lying and a free-digging lithium sedimentary deposit that the company expects to advance through an early-stage economic study in 2020. Just south of the Crescent Dunes solar energy plant, the project is favourably located for future production given the immediate access to some of the cheapest electricity in Nevada.About American Lithium Corp. American Lithium is actively engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of lithium deposits within mining-friendly jurisdictions throughout the Americas. The Company is currently exploring and developing the TLC project located in the highly prospective Esmeralda lithium district in Nevada. TLC is close to infrastructure, 3.5 hours south of the Tesla Gigafactory, and in the same basinal environment as Albemarle's Silver Peak lithium mine, and several advancing deposits and resources, including Ioneer Ltd.'s (formerly Global Geoscience) Rhyolite Ridge and Cypress Development Corp.'s Clayton Valley project.The metallurgical testing information reported herein was reviewed by Jared Olson, Metallurgist and VP Operations McClelland Labs, a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101.Please watch our corporate video at https://www.americanlithiumcorp.com/our-company/ and review our informative short project update videos and related background information at https://www.americanlithiumcorp.com/projects/tlc-nevada/.For more information, please contact the Company at info@americanlithiumcorp.com or visit our website at www.americanlithiumcorp.com.

    American Lithium Process Testing Produces Lithium Carbonate From Claystone At TLC

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Lithium Corp. (TSXV: LI) (OTCQB: LIACF) (Frankfurt: 5LA1) (“American Lithium” or the “Company”) a leading lithium exploration and development operator is pleased to report it has produced lithium carbonate from its flagship Tonopah Lithium Claims (TLC) claystone deposit. Leachate produced by McClelland Laboratories in Reno, Nevada from TLC was systematically put through a base-case process to remove impurities before precipitating lithium carbonate successfully. This milestone prompted the beginning of a testing program to optimize each step of the process to improve economics and reduce waste. To facilitate this program, Dr. Jarrett Quinn, lithium mining veteran, was retained as a metallurgical consultant.Dr. Quinn has worked as an independent consultant in the lithium mining industry, and has worked on plant design, start-up and in operations for the mining and metallurgical industry. His academic and research background includes a Ph.D. in Mining and Materials Engineering from McGill University.Dr. Quinn states, “The process we have currently developed, works, but continued process testing will explore each stage in detail to maximize the economics of the overall process. Simultaneously, we will be investigating potentially game-changing and alternative technologies to evolve the process further.”Michael Kobler, CEO of American Lithium, states, “We are proud of the team having accomplished the milestone of producing lithium carbonate from our TLC ore leachate. Although at bench scale, this is confirmation that we are on the right path. We are pleased to work through this process engineering under the direction of Dr. Jarrett Quinn. His extensive experience in lithium production and nickel laterite clay minerology is directly relatable to our project. Further, his education, experience, and track record of success is a perfect fit with this project, and we are delighted to work with and learn from him.”The current testing program is intended to produce design information required for the construction of a continuously operating pilot plant planned for 2021/22. The pilot plant will showcase the operations of the eventual full-scale plant. Lithium is a critical mineral that needs to be produced domestically, and the TLC project has the potential to be a low-cost, sustainable, and domestic source of this mineral.About the TLC PropertyThe TLC sedimentary lithium discovery is an exploration and development project located 12 kilometres northwest of Tonopah, Nev., and easily accessible by paved highway.
