Former Goldman Sachs Chemical Industry Analyst and Founder of JFS Investments Inc. Says LithiumOre Has ''the Lowest-Cost Lithium in the World''

INCLINE VILLAGE, NV / ACCESSWIRE / December 13, 2018 / LithiumOre (http://lithiumore.net) (the ''Company''), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Oroplata Resources, Inc. (OTCQB: ORRP), a lithium resource exploration and development company, announced that in an interview with Proactive Investors, former Goldman Sachs Chemical Industry Analyst and founder of JFS Investments Inc. Joe Salvani says they have ''the lowest-cost lithium in the world.''

Joe Salvani is also a consultant to LithiumOre and founder of JFS Investments Inc. During the interview, Salvani discusses the research behind his assessment of LithiumOre and why he believes the stock is tremendously undervalued. Salvani explains, ''What people don't understand is that LithiumOre isn't drilling to find lithium, they know they have lithium...the purpose of the drilling is to get the report to enable them to get further off-balance sheet financing.''

LithiumOre's CEO Doug Cole said, ''Blue Eagle Lithium has an $80 million-dollar market cap based on their land which sits atop the same brine lake as ours, yet we are only valued at $16 million and our 26,000 acres covers the deepest part of the basin. Considering they have a 43-101, we know we will have the same.''

Railroad Valley Lithium Project

Railroad Valley is a large topographically closed playa basin (dry salt lake bed). The basin is fault-bounded with numerous active thermal springs (anomalous in lithium) emerging along the faults. The fault sets have strike lengths of 25-30 miles (42-50 km) and are parallel to each other, about 8-12 miles apart (13-19 km). The faults that bound the basin form an elongate rectangular shaped basin of about 300 square miles (777 km2) in size.

Made in America, LithiumOre holds 1,300 accepted lithium mineral claims, totaling 26,000 acres, located in Railroad Valley of Nye County, Nevada. Railroad Valley is approximately 112 miles northeast of Clayton Valley and can be accessed by paved highway directly from U.S. Route 6. Railroad Valley is one of Nevada's largest trapped basins and is noted to hold all the necessary commercial and engineering prerequisites for a massive lithium brine deposit. The Company's claims have been evaluated by experts and the BLM and are in planned on-site exploration.
