Advantage Lithium Corp. (the "Company" or "Advantage Lithium") (TSX Venture: AAL) (OTCQX: AVLIF) is pleased to announce that, further to its news release dated March 31, 2017, it has completed the assignment of its option over the 1,471 hectare Stella Marys Project, located in the Salinas Grandes Salar in Salta province, Argentina (the "MSR Option"), to LSC Lithium Corporation ("LSC"). The Company has received cash payments of approximately US$690,000 in reimbursement of all option payments and related expenses previously paid by the Company in connection with the MSR Option. In addition the Company also received 256,520 common shares of LSC and a royalty on the brine concentrate produced from the 85,000 hectares now held by LSC in the Salinas Grandes Salar, Argentine.
Said President & CEO Mr. David Sidoo “We are pleased to complete this transaction with LSC and Orocobre as our holding at Stella Marys was small in relation to the holdings of Orocobre and LSC. This transaction made sense to consolidate and as a result we obtained a royalty over the entire 85,000 hectare property package. Our current exploration program is focused on the Cauchari drill program.”
