Very impressive personalities are coming on board of our Next Big Thing in Lithium and REE Global Exploration play.

By this move TNR Gold and International Lithium Corp. add a very important level of expertise in building a resource base and moving the company into next level of developing its portfolio of properties from exploration stage and with focus on production.
