Mesa Retains North American Exploration Inc. for the Green Energy Lithium Project
| ||Mesa Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: MSA) ("Mesa" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that North American Exploration, Inc. (NAE) has been engaged to provide permitting, environmental and engineering support at the wholly owned Green Energy lithium project in Utah. Drilling operations are anticipated to commence in the Spring of 2011, once permits are received. NAE has worked on the Company's projects providing exploration and environmental services since Mesa's founding in 2005.|
Lithium occurs at the project with values as high as 1,700 ppm lithium (0.9% Li2CO3) in saturated brine. In addition to the lithium the brine grades as high as 7.9% potash, 18.7% magnesium chloride, 13% salt, 6,100 ppm bromine and 1,260 ppm boron; these results are not 43-101 compliant and therefore should not be relied upon.
