Restructure of brine extraction rights at Diablillos with Lithium X



BRISBANE, Australia, Oct. 4, 2017 /CNW/ -- Orocobre Limited (ORE: ASX, ORL: TSX) (Orocobre) is pleased to announce the execution of agreements with Lithium X Energy Corp. (TSXV: LIX) (OTCQX: LIXXF) ("Lithium X") in respect of tenure held by Orocobre subsidiaries, Borax Argentina S.A. ("Borax") and South American Salars S.A. ("SAS") at the Salar de Diablillos.

Lithium X through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Potasio Lithio de Argentina S.A. (PLASA) will acquire 2,700 hectares of tenements from Borax over which Lithium-X currently holds usufruct rights for the extraction of lithium brines.  Lithium-X will also acquire a further 700 hectares owned by SAS which had been excluded from the Advantage Lithium transaction (ASX release 28 March 2017).  These tenements will be consolidated into the PLASA project, Sal de los Angeles (SDLA) in Salta Province, Argentina. 

Under the agreement:

Managing Director Richard Seville commented, "This transaction further clarifies the focus on our world class Olaroz lithium facility and simplifies the current tenement position at Diablillos.  The royalty we have retained also provides for a potential income stream in the future."
