Project and Lithium Sector Update:

The Company's NOI (Notice of Intent) to drill is expected to be submitted shortly to the BLM.  The focus of the drill program is multi-faceted. Firstly, four diamond drill holes to estimated depths of 250 to 300 feet each will be proposed. These four holes will allow for a project wide indicated resource. A fifth diamond drill hole drilled to an estimated depth of 300 feet will be used for metallurgical and pH solution testing. The information gained from the drilling program will then be incorporated into our first NI 43-101 Resource report.

Secondly, the Company will undertake systematic and through solution testing of the drilled lithium enriched horizons. This will enable the Company to map the subsurface horizons as per oxide and reduced horizons and further differentiate the grade of Lithium in solution that can be potentially recovered in a low CAPEX and low-cost extraction methods. Company continues to move forward with respect to recovering lithium from its synthetic brine solutions.

On September 6th Cypress Development announced their PEA (Preliminary Economic Assessment) from their adjacent property to our Clayton Valley Project. The PEA shows that the Claystone enriched horizons adjacent to our project look to be a viable economic target while at the same time offering a CAPEX that is significantly below that of similar scale hard rock spodumene Lithium resources.

On September 12th Standard Lithium announced that they have successfully processed Lithium from their Arkansas Smackover Lithium project. Two key takeaways were using only a pH adjustment to the Lithium enriched O&G waste water and then using off the shelf Ion exchange resins for the recovery and concentration of Lithium.

The Company believes that these two events show the company has the right Lithium project and is on track to potentially achieve the goal of being a low capex producer of battery grade lithium materials. 

"We look forward to providing detailed updates as testing and drilling results are received over the coming months,” stated President and CEO Robert McAllister.

All issued shares will be subject to a hold period, for any resale into the United States under Rule 144, of six months and one day. Proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for continued Lithium Brine division development, project development and general working capital. The Private Placement will be subject to normal regulatory approvals.
