The Company holds interests in the Fish Lake Valley property, located in west central Nevada; and the Fish Creek Caldera property, located in west-central Lander County, northern Nevada. Founded in 2007, the Company formerly went by the name Utalk Communications, Inc. and changed their name to Lithium Corporation on September 30, 2009.

Fish Lake Valley is a lithium enriched salar (also known as a Playa, dry lake, or Salt Pan), located in west central Nevada in northern Esmeralda county. Lithium Corporation currently holds eighty acre Association Placer claims that cover approximately 6,400 acres. The geological setting at Fish Lake Valley is highly analogous to the salars of Chile, Bolivia, and Peru. Further sediment and brine sampling studies were conducted on the property in early September 2009. Lithium Corporation anticipates a geophysical survey, and eventual drilling in Spring 2010.
The Fish Creek Caldera prospect is in west-central Lander County approximately 55 kilometers south of the county seat at the town of Battle Mountain in northern Nevada. The property consists of 117 conventional 20-acre Lode Mining Claims, which cover an area of approximately 2,340 acres. This prospect is a more traditional bulk-mining target. During uranium exploratory drilling operations here in 1978 by Phillips Uranium Corporation, lithium mineralization of up to 20,000 ppm was discovered.
