The Kietyönmäki Lithium Project
The Kietyönmäki Lithium property capitalizes on three key elements: cost effective surface and near surface extraction; well established mining and transportation infrastructure and rapid fulfilment of tariff free sales to potential EU lithium customers.
United Lithium targets regional deposits and mining operations along with advanced infrastructure and proximity to customers allowing for rapid and cost-effective exploration, development and production opportunities.
- Red dots on map above show reported occurrences of lithium, tin, LREE. Many of these are not under exploration tenure.
- Additional areas of nearby lithium occurrences can be acquired.

Mapping and sampling of the Kietyönmäki site located an extensive lithium-mineralized surface boulder field.
Assay results from 41 boulders shows Li2O (lithium oxide) averaged 1.06% and ranged from 0.03% to 4.56%; and Ta2O5 (tantalum pentoxide) averaged 168ppm and ranged from 1 ppm to 499 ppm.
Further mapping located lithium mineralization in outcrop, as reported during December 2016. Fifteen samples from three outcrop areas returned Li2O averaging 1.71% and ranging from 0.01% to 4.65%; and Ta2O5 (tantalum pentoxide) averaging 133 ppm and ranging from 16 ppm to 803 ppm.
Samples included representative chip samples, composite samples and selective grab samples depending on outcrop quality and were taken from three sites across an area of approximately 350m x 750m.
In 2017, the first and only drill program was completed on the project. 28 of the 33 holes drilled on the property intersected lithium mineralization along an approximate 450m strike length. The deepest holes tested approximately 65m below surface with mineralization open along strike in both directions and well as down dip.

Additional targets exist to the north side of Main Dyke, and to the SE
Dykes are thinning and thickening along strike and vertically; more drilling is required to test targets along strike
