Rock Tech Provides an Update on Start of Initial Baseline Studies Field Work

Vancouver, BC, Canada – July 15, 2019 Rock Tech Lithium Inc. (the “Company” or “Rock Tech”) (TSX-V: RCK; Frankfurt: RJIB) is pleased to provide an update on the initial baseline studies announced in news releases on July 8 and July 10, 2019, led by Northern Bioscience Ecological Consulting (“Northern Bioscience”) at the Company’s 100%-owned Georgia Lake lithium project in Ontario, Canada.

Northern Bioscience has conducted a whip-poor-will survey and no whip-poor-wills were detected. A bat recorder was deployed near the mine shaft and bird recorders were deployed in three locations about the property. Additionally, temperature loggers were deployed at two streams related to fish and aquatic habitat surveys.

All scientific and technical information in this news release concerning the Georgia Lake lithium property was reviewed and approved by Karl-Stephan Peters, EurGeol 787, a qualified person (QP) as defined under National Instrument 43-101.

About the Georgia Lake Lithium Project

The Georgia Lake lithium project is a lithium-rich pegmatite vein deposit with measured and indicated resources of 6.57 million tonnes grading 1.01% Li2O in addition to inferred resources of 6.72 million tonnes grading 1.16% Li2O. The first PEA for the project, focused exclusively on the main resource area which hosts less than 80% of total defined resources to date, was published in October 2018. Highlights from the PEA included an NPV of $312 million and an IRR of 62.2%. While the Georgia Lake lithium project has received extensive exploration and development investment over the years, there remains extensive areas for future exploration and discovery located both within and adjacent to the main resource area.
