American Lithium Corp. (TSXV: Li; Frankfurt: 5LA) ("American Lithium" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that its common shares have commenced trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the symbol "5LA" and the German Securities Number (WKN) "A2AHEL".
With this listing, American Lithium's common shares are now dual-listed on the TSX Venture Exchange and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, the third largest exchange in the world, behind NYSE and NASDAQ, and, the second largest fully electronic cash market with direct linkages to all European financial hubs. It is anticipated that the Frankfurt listing will increase trading liquidity and facilitate investment in American Lithium by investors in all major financial centres throughout Europe including Switzerland, Luxembourg, Lichtenstein, and Monaco.

The Company has amassed over 20,000 acres of claims in two lithium brine basins in Nevada. This includes 18,552 acres in Fish Lake Valley, a large Nevada basin where the geological and geophysical characteristics have been determined to be strongly analogous to the structural and geological settings at Albemarle's Silver Peak lithium brine operation at Clayton Valley, 38 kilometres to the southeast. The Frankfurt listing coincides with the commencement of American Lithium's Phase 2 exploration program in Fish Lake Valley where the Company intends to complete up to 13 drill holes to approximately 500 ft. in depth during the second half of 2016, to firm up its North Bowl Playa shallow prospect (see the Company's news release dated June 1, 2016).
