Imperial and E3 Lithium form strategic agreement on lithium pilot project in Alberta

Advances E3 Lithium's Clearwater Project with Imperial funding contribution
Pilot project progresses commercialization of battery-grade lithium from historic Leduc field for electric vehicles and energy storage
Imperial to provide technical and development support
 
CALGARY, AB, June 23, 2022  - Imperial Oil Limited (TSE: IMO) (NYSE American: IMO) and E3 Lithium (TSXV: ETMC) (OTCQX: EEMMF) announced today a collaboration to advance a lithium-extraction pilot in Alberta, exploring the redevelopment of an historic oil field into a potential new leading source of lithium for Canada's growing critical minerals industry.
 
The pilot will support E3 Lithium's Clearwater project, which will draw lithium from under the Leduc oil field, Imperial's historic discovery that first launched major oil and gas development in Western Canada. E3 Lithium's proprietary technology is designed to extract the critical mineral from the lithium-rich brine, with potential for commercial development of battery-grade products.

Patriot Drills 70.1 m of 2.22% Li2O including an interval 40.7 m of 3.01% Li2O in First Drill Hole to Test the CV1 Pegmatite at the East End of the Winter Drilling Corridor at the Corvette Property, Quebec

Highlights
 
Strongest lithium grades to date returned from drilling at the Property in first hole (CV22-017) to test the CV1 Pegmatite
3.01% Li2O and 160 ppm Ta2O5 over 40.7 m within a wider zone of 2.22% Li2O and 147 ppm Ta2O5 over 70.1 m. The interval includes,
Nine (9) samples assaying >4% Li2O to a peak of 6.35% Li2O over 0.92 m.
Five (5) samples assaying >400 ppm Ta2O5 to a peak of 1,120 ppm Ta2O5 over 1.0 m.
 
Drill hole targeted the CV1 Pegmatite, located approximately 1.1 km northeast of and on trend with the CV5 Pegmatite.
Geological modelling indicates the mineralized intercept in hole CV22-017 (70.1 m) is part of the main pegmatite body trending through the CV5-1 Pegmatite corridor.
 
Core assays for additional fifteen (15) drill holes from the winter/spring program remain to be reported.
 
The summer/fall drill program will resume in early June to progress the infill drilling of the CV5-1 Pegmatite corridor with two drill rigs, including follow-up of the high-grade zone returned at CV22-017. The drilling will further test the mineralized trend along strike, which is currently open to the east, west, and at depth.

Nevada Sunrise Intersects 950 ppm Lithium over 200 Feet in Maiden Drilling Program at the Gemini Lithium Project, Nevada

VANCOUVER, B.C., April 21, 2022 - Nevada Sunrise Gold Corp. ("Nevada Sunrise", or the "Company") (TSXV: NEV) is pleased to announce that lithium mineralization has been intersected over significant widths in the inaugural drilling program at its 100%-owned Gemini Lithium Project ("Gemini"), located in the Lida Valley basin in Esmeralda County, Nevada. Drilling began in the second week of March 2022 and concluded in the first week of April 2022. Two boreholes were completed for a total of 2,020 feet (615.85 metres) on drill sites located within a defined gravity low that hosts conductive layers detected by historical ground electromagnetic ("EM") surveys.
 
2022 Drilling Program
 
Borehole GEM22-01 was drilled to a depth of 900 feet and was terminated in a black, sticky clay that impeded further drilling progress. At 320 feet (97.56 metres), Nevada Sunrise's exploration team observed the presence of a clay layer similar to clay encountered in the Company's 2016-2017 exploration drilling in the Clayton Valley that had carried values of up to 1,400 parts per million ("ppm") lithium. Fourteen samples taken at 20-foot intervals between a depth of 380 feet (115.85 metres) and 520 feet (158.54 metres) from the Gemini clay layer were processed on a rush basis in April 2022 and returned a weighted-average value of 1,177.6 ppm lithium over 140 feet(42.68 metres). Concentrations within this interval ranged from a low of 746.9 ppm lithium to a high value of 1,950.6 ppm lithium. This initial result represents a new discovery of lithium-bearing sediments in the western Lida Valley, which has not been historically drill tested for lithium mineralization.

Patriot Battery Metals Completes Winter Drill Program, Extends Main Pegmatite Body to over 1.4 km in Length, and Returns Wider Intersections at Depth - Corvette Lithium Property, James Bay, Quebec

VANCOUVER, British Columbia., April 21, 2022  -- Patriot Battery Metals Inc. (the "Company" or "Patriot") (CSE: PMET) (OTCQB: PMETF) (FSE: R9GA) is pleased to announce that it has concluded the winter/spring component of the 2022 drill campaign at its wholly owned Corvette Property (the "Property"). Further, the Company is pleased to report that, based on drill holes completed to date, the geological 3D modelling indicates that pegmatite continues across the lake from CV5 towards CV1 - a strike length of at least 1,400 m - and the working geological model continues to indicate that the pegmatite body is thickening at depth. The target drill area - at the CV Lithium Trend - is located approximately 13.5 km south of the regional and all-weather Trans-Taiga Road and powerline infrastructure, within the James Bay Region of Quebec.
 
The winter/spring phase of the 2022 drill campaign began in late February with two diamond drill rigs, which remain on site in preparation the summer/fall phase of the drilling expected to commence in early June. A total of twenty (20) NQ size diamond drill holes (4,352 m) were completed during the winter/spring phase and included seventeen (17) holes collared over ice, and three (3) holes collared over land. The geological team remains on site for final processing of the drill core received and to prepare the program's final shipment of samples for transport to the laboratory for analysis. The Company is using SGS Canada (Lakefield, ON, and Burnaby, BC facilities) as their primary analytical lab.
