Commentary
The company is extremely pleased with these exploration sampling results.  This is the first step to creating lithium and potassium isobars and the ground work to locate the sonic seismic and drill hole programs.

Samples collected at Guayatayoc and Vilama have lithium values in the range that would be considered exceptionally commercial along with very high relative potassium grades. Note that a NI 43-101 Report has not been issued and that readers should be cautioned that the inference of commerciality relates only to the grade and not to any resource estimates.  The magnesium to lithium ratio is very low at Guayatayoc which implies a lower usage of Slaked lime and Sodium Sulphate to remove the magnesium from the brine.

Phillip Thomas, COO said, “The results of our recent sampling campaign continue to meet and exceed expectations.  We look forward to our additional assays and the mapping of lithium, boron and potassium isobars in the coming weeks. ”

Method
Phil Thomas, COO and Exploration Director and Marc Enright-Morin, CEO accompanied by local geologists visited the Guayatayoc Salar and Laguna Vilama in November 2016 and conducted a sampling program taking a total of eleven samples of which two samples were duplicated making a total of nine sampling locations.

Nine one litre bottles were rinsed out in brine from the sample pits and were immersed by hand to the middle depth of the pit at an elevation of 3,410 metres in Guayatayoc and 4,451 metres in Laguna Vilama.  Samples were then prepared for shipping.

The samples were sent to the Australian National Measurement Institute (“NMI”) in Sydney, Australia which is one of the highest rated analysis institutions in the world. It is responsible for Australian measurement standards.

A.I.S. Resources Limited Announces Initial Sampling at Guayatayoc

Vancouver, British Columbia – January 3, 2017 – A.I.S. Resources Limited (TSX – NEX: AIS.H) (the “Company” or “AIS”) is pleased to announce that the results of the initial sampling program at Guayatayoc Salar have been received from the University of Salta, Argentina. Professor Dr Ricardo N Alonso supervised the analysis.

HighlightsAIS Resources Guayatayoc Project

  • Sample Pit one returned a lithium value of 770ppm (0.077% Li) and a magnesium to lithium ratio of 0.72:1
  • Sample Pit two returned a lithium value of 250ppm (0.025%) and a magnesium to lithium ratio of 1.44:1
  • 11 pits have been dug in the past two weeks in Guayatayoc and sampled under the supervision of Dr Alonso. Another 13 will be completed in January 2017.
  • While the values above are not statistically significant they represent one of the lowest lithium to magnesium ratios in the lithium triangle. This means a lower cost of production.AIS Resources Guayatayoc Project

Commentary
Lithium values are in the range that would be considered exceptionally commercial.

Magnesium to lithium ratios of 0.72:1 and 1.44:1are excellent. Most salars are in the range 4:1-13:1. The traditional fractional crystallization technique uses one tonne of sodium sulphate for every tonne of magnesium to remove the magnesium. At prices between $175-$250 per tonne of sodium sulphate Guayatoyoc’s lower magnesium to lithium ratios will minimize processing costs.

Sodium values are lower than expected as the most common values in the lithium triangle are much higher. This may be due to the type of salar being a laguna rather than an enhedric closed style salar found in other parts of Argentina. The high boron values are to be expected as ulexite mining has taken place over the past 5 years and a thick layer (6-20cm) of ulexite was sampled in many places on the tenement. There is a strong correlation between high lithium values and high boron values. Orris, G.J., 2011, Deposit model for closed-basin potash-bearing brines: U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 2011–1283,11 p.

Potassium and sulphate show excellent values for the production of Potassium Sulphate, a valuable fertilizer (also known as SOP or sulphate of potash).

Phillip Thomas, COO said, “These are phenomenal results. We look forward to completion of trenching and further sampling to produce statistically significant values, and assist in the location of core drilling targets in the sub-acquifers on our tenements.”

A.I.S. Resources Acquires Two Argentine Lithium Projects and Announces $500,000 Financing

Vancouver, British Columbia – October 4, 2016 – Marc Enright-Morin, CEO of A.I.S. Resources Limited (TSX – NEX: AIS.H) (the “Company” or “AIS”) is pleased to announce AIS has entered into an Option Agreement to purchase two lithium projects in Argentina and is pleased to announce a concurrent $500,000 financing.

AIS has entered into a binding agreement to acquire 100% of two lithium projects in Jujuy province, Argentina, subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval. The projects are strategically located within the Lithium Triangle of South America.

Guayatayoc and Guayatayoc III are located in Jujuy Province along highway 11, 5 kilometres from the town of Abralaite in the Puna plateau. The property covers approximately 5,000 hectares of the Guayatayoc Salar which hosts favourable geology for lithium and boron, located adjacent to the El Aguillar mountain range, the source of lithium and boron. Previous exploration on the property has returned values between 200 ppm and 800 ppm of lithium. The magnesium to lithium ratios are less than 4 to 1, excellent for low cost processing. Ulexite is seen in outcroppings and in layers only 30 centimetres below the surface. There is a natural gas terminal located in San Antonio de Los Cobres approximately 120km away. The area is being actively mined for borates.

A PhD study published in 2013 by Steinmetz identifies the locations of aquifers and provides a detailed analysis of the lithology of the basin. During the course of the study the entirety of the basin was covered with 2D Seismic.

Laguna Vilama is located in Jujuy Province, in northwestern Argentina along the Bolivian and Chilean borders. The property is comprised of 2,500 contiguous hectares covering the middle of the basin. Early mapping has identified a favourable environment for the presence of brines.

The Jujuy province of Argentina is a well-known, favourable mining jurisdiction. Orocobre’s new development at the Olaroz salar, hosts a JORC/NI43-101 compliant, measured and indicated resource of 6.4 Mt LCE (Orocobre website, Oct 2, 2016). Lithium Americas is developing the Cauchari salar, jointly with SQM a JORC/NI43-101 compliant, measured and indicated resource of 8.7 Mt LCE. (Lithium Americas website. Oct 2, 2016). Both are less than 100km from the properties.

Under the terms of the agreement, AIS can acquire a 100% interest in the properties by;

  1. Payment of $150,000 US for a 6 month option entitling AIS to conduct exploration, sampling, chemistry and drilling to determine the commercial viability of the projects.
  2. A onetime option payment of $4.5 Million US – payable at the conclusion of the 6 month option period.

The properties are subject to 8.5% carried-free participation required by the provincial government and a 3% royalty to the Government.
