Orocobre Limited Announces Progress Regarding Quantification of Additional Lithium Brine Within the Olaroz Salar

Orocobre Limited advised progress regarding the quantification of additional lithium brine within the Olaroz salar that may contribute to additional expanded production at a lower brine supply development cost than the current phase 1 development. Deeper Lithium Brine Exploration Target: Geological Background: The 2011 resource estimate at Olaroz was based on relatively shallow drilling to a depth of approximately 200m. The drilling intersected an interbedded sequence of sand, silt, clay and halite layers, as described in detail in the NI43-101 compliant Technical Report document dated May 13 2011. The resource has an average free draining porosity of 10% and the sediments are generally relatively low permeability units resulting in a borefield design of production wells with average flow rates of approximately 10 l/s as set out in the aforementioned technical report. Geophysics (gravity surveying) conducted by Orocobre in 2009 suggested the Olaroz salar sediments extend to approximately 600 metres below surface. Electrical geophysics (a Magneto Telluric survey) and drilling by Lithium Americas Corporation to 450m depth on adjacent properties strongly suggested that brine continues below the base of the current Olaroz resource. Of particular interest, was the potential for sand units intersected below 200m in the narrow Cauchari basin to extend north into the much wider Olaroz basin. Taking into account these observations and the presence of sand beneath halite units at similar depths in the company's drilliong in Cauchari properties Orocobre has always considered the potential high for significant additional brine resources beneath those defined to date by the company. Borefield Development: The Olaroz project currently consists of two borefields with 200 metre deep bores with well screens over the majority of their lengths, to maximize brine inflows which extract brine from the current resource to 197m. The design of the borefields was to provide flow at 180l/s with two bores offline at any one time. These bores pump brine to a series of tanks where the flows are combined before being transferred to the evaporation ponds. In order to increase the peak flow rate to above 230l/s and to allow a faster build up of lithium brine stock, the company has drilled two additional bores, P301 and P302. Additionally, in order to test the exploration potential beneath the current resource, these bores were drilled to 304m and 323m respectively rather than the normal 200m. The first hole, P301 was designed to allow the installation of 8 inch internal casing and a 6 inch diameter pump as for previous bores, whilst the second hole, P302 was designed to allow the installation of 10 inch internal casing and higher flow 8 inch pump after the results of P301. Drilling Results and Significance: Hole P301 was drilled to a depth of 304 m below surface in April 2014, with an installed casing depth of 290m. This hole encountered the expected sequence from 0-200m and then intersected a sand unit from 255 m, with continuous sand from 275m to the end of the hole, confirming the extension of sandy units intersected in Cauchari into Olaroz. Because of the results of P301, P302 was designed to be drilled to a depth of 350m to further evaluate the sand unit encountered in P301 along strike and to greater depths and at a larger diameter to allow a higher pumping rate. The hole intersected a continuous sand unit from 220m to 323m before being terminated due to hole instability caused by intersecting gravel beds. Bore P302 was installed to a depth of 309m, with screen intervals beginning at 102 m from surface. These results are highly significant as this thick sand sequence may extend laterally beneath much of the defined brine resource and also to greater depths. Sands of this type have free draining porosity of between 20 and 25% based on previous testwork, and the sand unit could hold significant volumes of lithium-bearing brine which could be added to the resource base by future drilling. In addition, due to the thickness of the sand, any production bore drilled into this unit will be high yielding compared to bores only in the top 200m.

Orocobre Limited Provides Construction Update on the Olaroz Lithium Project

Orocobre Limited advised progress on the construction and commissioning at its Olaroz Lithium Project. In terms of physical progress the construction program is nearing completion with the commissioning of lithium carbonate plant circuits occurring as they are released from construction. The project is expected to be completed on budget. Construction Activities: Key construction activities in the lithium carbonate plant in recent times have been the installation of air compressors, the fit out of the boiler room, completion of the compressor room and the fit out of the electrical control room. Commissioning and Production: Commissioning of the soda ash system, air circuit and industrial water circuit have been completed. The commissioning of the reverse osmosis plant and boilers is nearing completion and the commissioning of the brine pumps to the carbonate plant and the process tanks is in progress. The plant is expected to be operational in November. The gas fired electricity generation plant continues to operate smoothly and provides all the power requirements. The Company continues to follow the community and shared value policy to successfully work with suppliers and the employment bureau to focus on the hiring of local people from the communities of Olaroz, Huancar, Puesto Sey, Pastos Chicos, Catua, Susques, Jama, El Toro, Coranzulí, San Juan and Abrapampa. The project implementation is through EPCM (Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management) with a high proportion of local involvement through construction and supply contracts and local employment. The community and shared value policy continues to be a key success factor, training local people under the supervision of high quality experienced professionals. The Olaroz lithium project is being developed by Orocobre (66.5%) with partners Toyota Tsusho Corporation (25%) and the Jujuy Province mining and energy company, JEMSE (8.5%) with a construction budget of $229 million including contingency.
