Rock Tech Closes Private Placement at $0.90 per Unit

Vancouver, BC, Canada – December 22, 2016 Rock Tech Lithium Inc. (the “Company”) (TSX-V: RCK | Frankfurt: RJIB), further to its news release on October 27, 2016, is pleased to announce the closing of its non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) consisting of 3,011,112 units (the “Units”) of the Company at a price of $0.90 per Unit for gross proceeds of $2,710,000.  Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one-half of one share purchase warrant.  Each full warrant entitles the holder to purchase an additional common share of the Company at a price of $1.45 per share until December 23, 2018, subject to accelerated expiry in the event that the Company’s shares trade at $2.00 per share or more for a period of twenty (20) consecutive trading days after expiry of the 4-month hold period on April 23, 2017.

All securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period expiring on April 23, 2017.

“We are very happy and proud that our investors are showing such a strong trust in the future of Rock Tech Lithium and management’s ability to create shareholder value.  As announced, the rationale for the private placement was to boost strategic cash reserves to ensure the Company is well-positioned to capitalize on battery metal opportunities, several of which are currently under advanced review. We are very happy that we achieved this aim,” said Martin Stephan, Rock Tech’s Chief Executive Officer.

“Our shareholders share our view that the lithium market is characterized, for at least the next eight years, by tight supply due to much higher demand than anticipated. It is, therefore, an exciting time to be developing Rock Tech Lithium.  The development of the Company will strictly adhere to pure shareholder value creation.  Our management team which, collectively with cornerstone investors hold approximately 80% of the outstanding shares, has only one objective: increasing Rock Tech’s share price.  Every strategic decision by management will reflect this aim on our way to develop Rock Tech Lithium into one of the world’s most advanced hard rock lithium exploration companies,” Mr. Stephan concluded.

No finders’ fees were paid in connection with the Offering.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Company,

Martin Stephan
Director, Chief Executive Officer
