ACME Lithium Successfully Completes 10-Day Pumping Test at Clayton Valley Lithium Brine Project

ACME Lithium Successfully Completes 10-Day Pumping Test at Clayton Valley Lithium Brine Project

ACME Lithium Inc. (CSE: ACME) (OTCQX: ACLHF) (the "Company", or "ACME") is pleased to report that the Company has successfully completed a 10-day pumping test at test well TW-1 located in Clayton Valley, Nevada. The data generated during the test will be used to estimate the transmissivity and the storativity of the Lower Gravel Unit (LGU) at the TW-1 location. Preliminary Phase 1 and Phase 2 data suggest the perforated casing of TW-1 captures approximately 500 feet of potential lithium brine aquifer hosted in the LGU. The LGU is the basal gravel overlaying bedrock in Clayton Valley.

State permits limited pumping from TW-1 to a maximum rate of 100 gallons per minute (gpm), with total discharge not to exceed 5-acre feet. This permit requirement was strictly adhered to during the test. However, the drawdown measured at a pumping rate of 95 gpm over 10 consecutive days suggests the LGU would sustain significantly higher extraction rates over time, and that TW-1 is in a potential production aquifer in Clayton Valley.

A range of brine samples were collected during the pumping test. These samples were submitted to Nevada certified laboratories for multi-element chemical analyses, to include total and dissolved lithium. Bulk samples were also collected for potential bench-scale testing for Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) and processing. Preliminary results from the TW-1 pumping test and laboratory analyses are anticipated to be available by end of August 2023.

Intact HQ core recovered from DH-1 was submitted to GeoSystems Analysis Inc. The core was submitted with brine collected from the TW-1 pumping test. The core and brine sample will be used for laboratory testing of drainable porosity (Specific Yield). The results of the laboratory testing of the core samples and the results from the TW-1 pumping test will be used to assess the potential volume of lithium enriched brine and extractability of the brine from the LGU aquifer through pumping. With further evaluation and results pending, the assessment of extractable brine volume and concentration of lithium in the brine will be used to infer if a lithium resource potentially exists at the ACME project.

ACME Lithium Announces Results from Phase 1 Winter Drilling Program at Shatford Lake Manitoba

ACME Lithium Announces Results from Phase 1 Winter Drilling Program at Shatford Lake Manitoba

ACME Lithium Inc. (CSE: ACME) (OTCQX: ACLHF) (the "Company", or "ACME") announced today drill core sample results from its 2023 winter drill program at its 100% owned Shatford Lake and Birse Lake lithium projects in southeastern Manitoba, Canada. ACME's Shatford-Birse claim area are contiguous to the south of Sinomine's world-class Tanco Mine, a Lithium, Cesium and Tantalum producer (LCTs) since 1969.

Core drilling was based on geological prospecting/mapping with lithium determinations by LIBS and geophysical magnetic interpretation. Drilling and magnetic interpretation was successful in defining broad structural belts with multiple unexposed pegmatites and specific cross structural features in these broad belts that control pegmatite injection. Recent results from this maiden drilling program at Shatford Lake will help the Company vector in the fertile pegmatite zones. Twenty-six pegmatites were intersected in 6 of 8 drill holes.
