Sodium carbonate is also an essential element in the processing of lithium, sulfates, magnesium and other marketable products from salt brines. A source of sodium carbonate increases the potential viability of lithium projects in the Atacama region of South America, especially Bolivia and to a lesser extent Chile, where magnesium has been identified occurring with lithium in sufficient quantities to cause concern over the increasing costs of processing the brine.

Lomiko Metals Inc. ("Lomiko" or "the Company) has acquired 100% of the EVA and PLAYA claims which comprise of 222.04 hectares and 222.09 respectively of semi-evaporitic lakes known as Rose Lake and Cunningham Lake located near 70 mile House, B.C.
