-- Company Reports Vertical Electrical Sounding ("VES") Results on its Santo Tomas Property in Hombre Muerto Salar

-- Company Progresses Additional VES Campaign on its Gran Victoria Property in Hombre Muerto Salar

Alpha Lithium Corporation (TSX.V: ALLI) (OTC: APHLF) (Germany WKN: A3CUW1) (" Alpha " or the " Company ") is very pleased to announce that it has completed a Vertical Electrical Sounding ("VES") campaign across a portion of its Salar del Hombre Muerto project in Argentina's Lithium Triangle ( see June 28, 2022 news release ). The Company controls over 5,000 hectares in the prolific Hombre Muerto salar and the results of this VES campaign indicate the presence of significant subsurface brine bodies on the Company's Santo Tomas property.

Alpha's Santo Tomas property is surrounded by POSCO's multi-billion-dollar Hombre Muerto development and is located less than 5 km from POSCO's pilot plant in the same salar.

Exploration and drilling activity by surrounding competitors indicate Alpha's property should contain a prolific lithium brine aquifer. Two nearby wells, both drilled within 300 meters of Santo Tomas' boundaries, produced at highly significant flow rates with at least one of the wells returning lithium concentrations better than 750 mg/L, which is typical in the Salar del Hombre Muerto.

The results of the VES evaluation indicate the presence of three large units, all of which are expected to be productive:

  1. Upper Unit: Extends from the surface to 44 meters deep, with very low resistivity values ​​(0.3 to 2.3 Ohm-m) and is described as sand, silt, clay and evaporites facies, saturated with productive brines.

  2. Middle Unit: A very thick productive sequence with low to moderate resistivity values ​​(2 to 12 Ohm-m) that are interpreted as fractured and massive halite facies, with intercalations of sandy facies, and saturated with brines. There is a clear increase in thickness from east to west, with the unit base detected at approximately 200 meters deep in the east, and approximately 320 meters deep in the west.

  3. Lower Unit: Characterized by moderate resistivity values ​​(17 to 41 Ohm-m) and are described as sedimentary facies of the Neogene Catal Formation. This historically saturated and productive unit is made up of conglomerates, sandstones, and tuffs.

The Company's regional geological-geophysical model suggests that the thickness of the modern fill facies (sands, silts, clays, evaporites and halite) of the Salar del Hombre Muerto vary from about 40 meters in the eastern sector (outcropping of the Catal Formation), to more than 500 meters deep in the western zone (outcrops of the Sijes Formation).

Brad Nichol, President, and CEO of Alpha, stated, "As we continue progressing in the neighboring Tolillar Salar closer towards our objective of commercial production, Hombre Muerto is quickly becoming the next growth engine for our company. In Hombre Muerto, we are surrounded by intense exploration and exploitation of lithium enriched brines by multinational corporate giants. Through those exploits, and the unmatched 25-year production history, Hombre Muerto is well understood to be one of the most desirable lithium brine locations in the world. The results of this VES survey indicate significant similarities to the surrounding world-class assets of our immediate neighbors."

With $44 million in cash, Alpha is sufficiently funded to continue pursuing its exploration and production ambitions in Argentina for the long-term. Accordingly, the Company intends to commence drilling operations in Hombre Muerto as soon as possible.

Nichol continued, "Our operations in Hombre Muerto do not start and stop with the Santo Tomas property. We have already commenced a VES campaign on our Gran Victoria property in Hombre Muerto and expect to acquire approximately 40 shot points there. We look forward to releasing the results of that survey as soon as we have them."

Alpha's team is one of the most experienced in the Salar del Hombre Muerto. As recently announced ( see July 19, 2022 news release ), the Company has engaged Mario Portillo, a global lithium expert worked on the design of Livent Corporation's 25-year producing lithium carbonate and lithium chloride plants, in addition to guiding Galaxy Resources (now Allkem Limited) in the Salar del Hombre Muerto. Additionally, Alpha's Country Manager, David Guerrero has spent most of his lithium career in Hombre Muerto, having held a leadership position in Galaxy Resources. After leading development and exploration activities, David was an essential player in the 2018 sale of Galaxy's Hombre Muerto assets to POSCO. Finally, Doctor Rodolfo Garcia leads Alpha's subsurface technical team and has spent decades studying, understanding, researching, exploring, exploiting and teaching global audiences about the Salar del Hombre Muerto. Doctor Garcia's work is known and respected worldwide and he is one of several experienced leaders within the Alpha Lithium team.

InvestmentPitch Media Video Discusses Alpha Lithium's Securing of US$30 Million Investment from Uranium One with Right to Invest Additional US$185 Million at Tolillar Salar, Argentina - Video Available on Investmentpitch.com

InvestmentPitch Media Video Discusses Alpha Lithium's Securing of US$30 Million Investment from Uranium One with Right to Invest Additional US$185 Million at Tolillar Salar, Argentina - Video Available on Investmentpitch.com

Alpha Lithium Corporation (TSXV: ALLI) (OTC Pink: APHLF) has secured a US$30 million investment from Uranium One Group.

Uranium One Group, (www.uranium1.com) one of an international group of companies, all wholly owned subsidiaries of the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation, better known as Rosatom, manages one of the world's largest uranium mining holdings with a diversified portfolio of assets.

For more information, please view the InvestmentPitch Media "video" which provides additional information about this news and the company. If this link is not enabled, please visit www.InvestmentPitch.com and enter "Alpha Lithium" in the search box.

It is developing projects in Kazakhstan, Tanzania, Namibia and in South America. Rosatom recently assembled a team of lithium industry experts within Uranium One to focus on constructing one of the world's largest lithium portfolios and to become a very significant provider of battery grade lithium to key international manufacturers.

Alpha Lithium has formed a wholly owned subsidiary, Alpha One Lithium B.V., which will be the sole owner of Alpha Lithium's Tolillar lithium deposit in Argentina. The 27,500-hectare deposit is located in the Argentine province of Salta, neighboring multi-billion-dollar lithium players in the heart of the renowned "Lithium Triangle", a region rich with hydromineral raw materials with a high concentration of lithium.

Uranium One's wholly owned subsidiary Uranium One Holding N.V. has agreed to invest US$30 million in exchange for a 15% ownership of Alpha One Lithium, with Alpha Lithium holding the balance of 85% and retaining full control of Tolillar, management, and the board and will be responsible for deploying the invested capital. The transaction is limited only to Tolillar and when closed, is expected to leave Alpha Lithium with approximately $45 million in cash, free to focus expansion and development efforts on its nearby Salar del Hombre Muerto, where the company continues to expand its 5,000+ hectare foothold in one of the world's highest quality and longest producing lithium salars.

Following the completion of a bankable Feasibility Study on the project, Uranium One Holding N.V. will have the option to invest an additional US$185 million to acquire another 35% of Tolillar, thereby increasing its ownership to 50%. Should Uranium One exercise its Earn-in Right, the US$185 million will be directed toward the construction of an initial 10,000 tonne per annum LCE commercial production facility. This initial production facility is intended to be the first module of several, allowing production to be expanded if and when it is desired.

If Uranium One were to issue a large capital call associated with a plant expansion in which Alpha Lithium may choose not to participate in, Alpha has an option to sell its equity stake in Alpha One, receiving fair market value plus a premium of 25% for its position as well as having a right of first offer to solicit higher offers.

Brad Nichol, Alpha's President and CEO, stated: "This early-stage asset has attained a truly game-changing breakthrough for our shareholders. This sort of milestone is rarely achieved by a company with less than two years of operations and with a valuation at this level. Exercising the Earn-in Right implies a value at Tolillar of US$529 million, not including any Additional Consideration. Including the maximum Additional Consideration, the implied project value would be US$604 million, which is over CDN$750 million for the Tolillar asset alone. Uranium One has the ability to earn a 50% interest in Tolillar and Alpha will retain a 50% working interest in a salar that is funded up to the point of commercial production. Having gotten to know Mr. Shutov and his team over the past few months, I am truly pleased to be partnering with Uranium One, an internationally recognized, large-scale project developer. I have no doubt they will match our hunger for fast and full development of the Tolillar Salar, in addition to offering large project execution experience and significant downstream contacts in Europe."

Andrey Shutov, President of Uranium One, added: "In alignment with our stated strategy of securing non-uranium mineral resources, Uranium One is very excited to work with the famous Alpha Lithium team to advance the Tolillar Project, located within the renowned Lithium Triangle, the world's most prolific lithium region. This partnership agreement represents a scaled approach to expanding Uranium One's lithium production, while allowing Uranium One and Alpha Lithium to collaborate on the development of Tolillar and implement efficient extraction technologies."
