ABOUT LEXI

Lithium Energi Exploration, Inc. (TSX.V:LEXI) is an exploration company specializing in the strategic acquisition, exploration and development of lithium brine assets in Argentina. The Company is headquartered in Toronto, Ontario and has offices in Dallas, Texas and Catamarca, Argentina. The common shares of the Company are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company recently completed acquisitions of three Argentine corporations, Lithium Energi Argentina, S.A., Antofalla North, S.A., and Antofalla South, S.A., which together hold a portfolio of projects comprising more than 128,000 hectares of prime lithium brine concessions in the Argentina Province of Catamarca – right in the heart of the lithium triangle.

“We expect sales of electric and hybrid vehicles to push lithium demand growth 16 percent annually over the next decade, faster than almost any other major commodity over the past century, from about 175,000 metric tonnes in 2015 to about 775,000 by 2025.”

PRIME ASSETS IN BETWEEN THE MAJORS

OUR PROPERTIES

LEXI owns three, distinct project areas, specifically the Laguna Caro Project area, the Antofalla North Project area, and the Antofalla South Project area.  Collectively, it controls 128,367 hectares of mining properties in and around the Antofalla Salar. These properties host brines containing elevated concentrations of lithium, potassium, and boron. The project areas are located about 375 km NW of San Fernando del Valle de Catamarca, in Catamarca Province in the High Cordilleran Andes. LEXI has combined 39 individual mineral concessions into these three projects – the Laguna Caro area (17,759 ha), the Antofalla North area (41,496 ha), and the Antofalla South area (69,112 ha). Of the 8 concessions in the Laguna Caro Project, the easternmost border is about 7 km east of FMC Lithium’s operation at Salar del Hombre Muerto (“SHM”) and the westernmost claim in this group is located about 13 km east of the Salar de Antofalla (“Antofalla”). The Antofalla North Project is situated about 13 km W of western edge of the Laguna Caro claim group, beginning with its northernmost concessions that border the Salta Province and extending SSW for about 30 km through 13 semi-contiguous claims that end at the northern border of a large concession block that is owned by Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB), which occupies the center portion of the Antofalla salar. The Antofalla South Project extends SSW through 18 concessions, starting with claims that abut the southern boundary of the Albemarle concession block and extend for a distance of about 50 km to the southernmost concession in this group of claims, which is located about 130 km SSW of SHM.

WHY LEXI?

Demand for lithium, driven by use in rechargeable batteries, is mushrooming.  That growing demand is projected to soon outpace global production. As the demand has increased, lithium prices have skyrocketed in just 7 years. Also, as the demand has  increased, the costs of battery manufacturing has  plummeted, which has further propelled demand.    New lithium-ion battery factories are being built all over the world to keep pace with the rapidly increasing usage of lithium, the most effective chemistry for storage of electricity. The meteoric growth in worldwide cell phones has played a role, but the biggest drivers fueling the current spike in lithium demand are  (1) electric vehicles and (2) new power storage systems for residential and commercial use.

LEXI’S PATH TO PRODUCTION – MRT BASIS

"LEXI has entered into a contract with IBC giving LEXI rights to use MRT in exclusive areas of Argentina."

PARTICLE INTERACTION

Ions, elements, and complex molecules go through generally predictable changes based on interaction with other materials.  These changes most often occur due to known physical, thermal, electrical, and chemical properties that cause particles to be attracted, repelled, combined, divided, or catalyzed in the presence of other particles, often influenced by temperature, pressure, orientation, surface area, and other factors.  This is where chemistry intersects with geology, biology, metallurgy, and most other sciences. In the world of refining metals, predictable chemical properties have enabled the evolution of techniques to segregate and refine complex resources into purified metals, which are critical for modern societies.  To date, however, most of these techniques have relied on processing that involves dangerous materials and hazardous residuals, as in the case of solvent extraction – one of the most widely used methods for metal extraction.  Today, life on our Earth comes with an increasingly more urgent need to focus human activities on more environmentally friendly ways to live, work, consume, and protect.  This is now giving rise to a paradigm shift at the molecular level, the emergence of “green chemistry”.

August 24, 2017, Lithium Energi Exploration Announces Agreement with IBC Advanced Technologies to Develop Lithium Processing Facilities Using Proprietary Molecular Recognition Technology.

August 24, 2017 – Toronto, Ontario – Lithium Energi Exploration Inc. (TSX Venture: LEXI) (“LEXI” or the
“Company”) is pleased to announce that it has executed an agreement (the “Agreement”) with IBC Advanced Technologies, Inc. of American Fork, Utah, USA (“IBC”) to utilize IBC’s proprietary metals separation technology, known as Molecular Recognition Technology (“MRT”) for selective lithium extraction in Argentina.  From testing to commercial operations, MRT has repeatedly been proven as one of the most advanced, efficient, and eco-friendly refining technologies in the world for segregating metals in both mining and recycling with up to 99.99% purity.  “With MRT’s proven record in separating platinum group metals, rare earths, and alkali metals, we believe that IBC’s designer molecules, applied to selective lithium extraction, will significantly expedite LEXI’s path to production in Catamarca Province,” noted LEXI’s CEO, Steven Howard, adding that “the remarkable success of IBC’s chemical engineering team in the arena of engineering and manufacturing complex, ligand-based components, is evidenced by IBC’s extensive development and commercialization of separation systems at mining and industrial sites around the world.”

Under the Agreement, IBC will be responsible for completing basic engineering specifications and drawings, process design and throughput calculations, brine testing and ligand selections for the MRT plant.  For providing the services, LEXI will pay IBC USD $600,000 in cash over the next 12 months and issue 5,000,000 common shares of the Company.  Under the Agreement, LEXI will incur future additional costs for site licensing and/or similar engineering services for other commercially viable minerals.  IBC will also have the right to a 10% carry-forward interest in the assets of, and 8% of the net profit from, any MRT plants developed by LEXI and IBC under the Agreement.  In exchange for completing its payments under the Agreement, LEXI will have the exclusive right of first refusal to obtain site license(s) to use MRT for the separation, recovery, refining and purification of lithium from brine prospects in territories comprising approx. 20,000 square kilometers (7,500 square miles) in two areas of Catamarca Province, specifically including all of the areas in and around the salars of Antofalla, Hombre Muerto, and Pipanaco.

In regard to the Agreement, IBC’s President, Steven Izatt stated, “We believe LEXI’s management team and extensive property package provide a great foundation to build a significant, lithium processing presence for MRT in Argentina.”  Izatt added, “At IBC, we have spent nearly 30 years in MRT research and have installed commercial applications at client operations all over the world.  As the global community quickens the pace to move to more green energy alternatives, we believe that green chemistry will play a decisive role in that progress.  This premise underscores our belief that MRT will emerge as one of the preeminent separation technologies for lithium, due to its unparalleled advantages in reducing speed to market, capital and operating costs, and adverse environmental impacts.”

All of the securities to be issued pursuant to the Agreement are subject to TSX Venture approval and the applicable U.S. and Canadian hold periods.

May 11, 2017 Lithium Energi Exploration, inc. Secures exclusive right To acquire over 100,000 ha. of additional properties

May 11, 2017 – Toronto, Ontario.  Lithium Energi Exploration, Inc. (TSX Venture: LEXI) (“LEXI” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has secured an exclusive right of first refusal (“ROFR”) to acquire from Resource Ventures S.A. (“ReVe”) over 100,000 hectares of prospective lithium brine properties in the province of Catamarca, Argentina. The ROFR gives LEXI rights to acquire approximately 42,000 hectares of lithium brine prospects located in the Salar de Antofalla and approximately 60,000 hectares in the Salar de Pipanaco.  In the Antofalla salar alone, these acquisitions would increase LEXI’s holdings to over 152,000 hectares and expand its total lithium brine prospects in Argentina to more than 230,000 hectares.

Salar de Antofalla (“Antofalla”)

Located less than 20 km west of FMC Corp.’s lithium operation (Argentina’s largest lithium producer) in northern Catamarca Province, Antofalla hosts one of the largest basins in the region.  It is over 130 km long and varies between 5 and 20 km across. On September 12, 2016, Albemarle Corp., the world’s largest producer of lithium, announced its acquisition of exclusive exploration and acquisition rights to a claim block located in the center section of this salar. At that time, Albemarle stated its belief that Antofalla will be certified as the largest lithium resource in Argentina. It acquired its claim block from Bolland Minera S.A., a large, private mining firm with operations in multiple countries. Bolland has also obtained substantial claim blocks in Antofalla, establishing a major position in this prospectively valuable resource.

In 2016, Roskill information Services reported that Bolland had drilled 56 boreholes over 265km2 and defined a resource of 83mt of potash (KCl) grading 6,400mg/l and 2.22mt of lithium (11.8mt LCE) grading 350mg/l.  Drilled between 2008 and 2011 in the section now owned by Albemarle, Bolland’s test wells were completed in conjunction with the Institute of Mineral Resources for the National University of La Plata in Buenos Aires. Well logs, permeability, hydraulic gradient, core sample chemistry, and gravimetric studies published during that period indicated substantial values for lithium and potassium continuously observed from the surface down to a depth of over 500 meters, suggesting that Antofalla is one of the deepest basins in the region.  “As suggested in Bolland’s tests, subsurface brines in regional salars can be quite uniform across a salar’s associated basin and we expect to see similar circumstances as we drill and explore LEXI’s properties in this immense Antofalla basin”, stated Miles Rideout, LEXI’s Director of Exploration.

Salar de Pipanaco (“Pipanaco”)

The ROFR claims in Pipanaco consist of over 60,000 hectares covering more than 85% of this salar, which is located approx. 50 km due west of Catamarca city.  The properties are in early exploration with minimal surface samples being collected to date.  This salar was drilled more than ten years ago in a program for the federal government of Argentina to identify new sources of fresh water.  Based on those drilling reports, the Company believes that these Pipanaco holdings, which are located at only 700-750 meters above sea level, could represent a very favorable site for a lithium extraction facility, as well as being a potential location to create a regional lithium processing facility located less than a two-hour drive from Catamarca city.

The ROFR provides LEXI with a 12-month period of exclusivity during which it intends to pursue suitable terms and conditions pursuant to which it may acquire one or both of the projects presently owned by ReVe in Argentina.  If exercised, the Company’s prospective lithium properties would increase from its present holdings of over 128,000 hectares to greater than 230,000 hectares in the Catamarca Province.

“The future success of lithium producers will, in part, be driven by the location and value of a company’s reserves, so when our Board requested we enhance LEXI’s holdings by including other strategic properties acquired before the new management team joined LEXI, this ROFR was secured to emphatically affirm our dedication to growing reserve values that will strengthen the Company and benefit our shareholders”, noted LEXI’s CEO, Steven Howard.

ReVe is controlled by Steven Howard and Omar Ortega, who are both shareholders and officers of LEXI. The properties were acquired by ReVe, and were known to LEXI’s Board of Directors, prior to Mr. Howard and Mr. Ortega joining LEXI in April, 2017.  Any agreement to acquire these assets would be a non-arms-length transaction subject to approvals by both the TSX Venture Exchange and LEXI’s shareholders and to other conditions customary in transactions of this nature.
