INCLINE VILLAGE, NV / ACCESSWIRE / January 25, 2019 / LithiumOre (http://lithiumore.net) (the "Company"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Oroplata Resources, Inc. (OTCQB: ORRP), a lithium resource exploration and development company, is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. George Scheid as Senior Drilling Project Manager.

Mr. Scheid currently serves as Senior Drilling Project Manager at Teton Energy Services and brings more than 30 years of experience managing onsite drilling operations in the exploration and mining industry. He has participated in numerous projects from initial project conception through production. He will be overseeing LithiumOre's drilling and exploration efforts at their Railroad Valley Lithium Project located in Nevada, USA.

Mr. Scheid stated, "I am excited to partner with LithiumOre and to be a part of the strong resurgent interest in lithium mining within the U.S."

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.

Numerous thermal springs emerge along the basin bounding fault systems, which form the North-West and South-East flanks of the playa basin. Thermal waters which discharge from the springs carry moderately anomalous values of Lithium.

The mountains that surround the basin contain outcropping rock units also anomalous in lithium. This closely matches the geologic criteria for the United State Geological Survey ("USGS") ore deposit model for Clayton Valley type lithium brine deposits.
