TSX: CLQ; U.S. OTC: CLQMF

TORONTO, Jan. 31, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ – Canada Lithium Corp. (TSX: CLQ)
(U.S. OTC: CLQMF) announced today that commissioning of the mineral
processing sections of the process plant continues as scheduled with
spodumene production being achieved on a regular basis and final
electrical work and software programming being undertaken on the
lithium carbonate circuits.

There will be a number of site visits by our off-take partners and
various battery manufacturers as we approach the first shipment of
lithium carbonate under the five-year Tewoo off-take agreement at
end-March 2013. The 20,000-tonne-per-annum lithium carbonate processing
plant is scheduled to complete ramp-up to full production by Q4, 2013.

The Company expects the final drawdown, in the amount of $25M of the
$75M debt facility from the banking syndicate, to occur during
February-March, 2013.

About Canada Lithium Corp.

The Company holds a 100% interest in the Québec Lithium Project near Val
d’Or, the geographical heart of the Québec mining industry. It has
completed construction and is in the commissioning phase of an open-pit
mine and on-site processing plant with estimated capacity to produce
approximately 20,000 tonnes of battery-grade lithium carbonate
annually. Metallurgical tests have produced battery-grade lithium
carbonate samples. Lithium carbonate is used in lithium-ion batteries
that power consumer electronics (laptops, tablets, etc.), power-grid
storage facilities and electric and hybrid vehicles.  The Company
trades under the symbol CLQ on the TSX and on the U.S. OTCQX under the
