Battery Mineral Resources Corp. (TSXV: BMR) (OTCQB: BTRMF) ("Battery" or "BMR" or the "Company") announces encouraging drill core assay results from the recently completed Phase 1 exploration and infill drill program at the Dalmacia zone of the Punitaqui mine complex ('Punitaqui") in Chile. The Punitaqui mine is slated for resumption of mine operations in the second half of 2022.

The Dalmacia target is located in the southern portion of the Punitaqui area approximately 6 kilometers ("km") south of the Punitaqui copper processing plant. The Dalmacia target has underground mining access, partially delineated mineralized zones and is targeted as a potential new source of ore feed to the Punitaqui plant.

Highlights

  • Final assay results for the following Dalmacia drillholes include (see Table 1):

    • DS-22-09: 18 meters ("m") at 1.51% Copper ("Cu") including 8m at 2.39% Cu
    • DS-22-10: 23m at 1.55% Cu including 12m at 2.50% Cu
    • DS-22-11: 11m at 1.96% Cu, 6m at 2.40% Cu and 11m at 1.50% Cu
    • DS-22-12: 5m at 1.08% Cu, 4m at 1.22% Cu and 11m at 0.90% Cu
    • DS-22-13: 5m at 1.00% Cu
    • DS-22-15: 29m at 1.05% Cu including 7m at 1.94% Cu
    • DS-22-16: 4m at 1.17% Cu
    • DS-22-17: 6m at 1.15% Cu
    • DS-22-18: 6m at 0.96% Cu
  • The phase 1 drill program at Dalmacia has been completed and comprised of 9,757 meters in 52 drill holes.
  • Geological drill cross-sections were compiled, and an updated 3D geological model has been finalized.
  • The new 3D geological model and assay database will form the basis of a resource estimate to be completed by consultants JDS Energy & Mining Inc.
  • Planning for a follow-up infill Reverse Circulation ("RC") program at Dalmacia North and an exploration and infill drill test of the remaining 1,000m strike length at Dalmacia is complete and a number of new drill pads have been constructed.

Battery CEO, Martin Kostuik states; "We continue to advance the Punitaqui project via drilling, metallurgical testing, permit modifications, community relations and are gaining clarity on non-dilutive financing for the capital required for resumption of operations at Punitaqui. These drilling results further confirm the high-grade of the copper mineralization at Dalmacia North. Overall, the 2021-2022 Dalmacia North assay results are far better than expected. These results clearly delineate high-grade copper grades over significant intervals including: 23m at 1.55% Cu, 18m at 1.51% Cu and 11m at 1.96% Cu."

"We are very pleased with the Dalmacia Phase 1 drill program results - continued results like these leading to the planned restart of our former producing Punitaqui copper mine, will give our investors an opportunity to participate in a potentially significant re-rating in BMR's valuation as we transition from development to operations and positive cash flow. We look forward to providing further exciting updates for the drill program as we continue to progress."

Dalmacia Drill Program

The 2021-22 phase 1 drill program consisted of 9,757.56m in 52 diamond core holes. The geological setting of the Dalmacia target is different from the Cinabrio orebody which is located 20 kilometers to the north. At Dalmacia, structurally controlled copper-gold mineralization is developed in the contacts between granite, sub-volcanic andesitic porphyry intrusives and volcano-sedimentary rocks. Controls on mineralization include small scale shear zones, intrusive contacts, vesicular andesites and alteration zones. High grade copper mineralization occurs in small high-grade pods which locally occur in clusters enveloped in low grade mineralization.

The upper portion of the Dalmacia target is accessed via a portal and an underground ramp with limited level development. The Phase 1 drill program focused on the northernmost 600m of the zone, was designed to infill and confirm the continuity of mineralization between previous drilling and includes a series of step-out holes to test the potential adjacent to the main zone of copper-gold-silver mineralization as defined by historic drilling.

Complete assay results were recently received for eleven holes (see Table 1 and Figure 1). A summary of the targeting rationale and results for the significant recent drillholes follows below.

DS-22-09 was planned to test a "drilling gap" above the lower portion of the DS-21-08 intercept (102m at 1.41%Cu including 78m at 1.67% Cu and 16m at 3.52% Cu). This infill drillhole intersected two narrow copper zones including 6m at 1.01% Cu, 3m at 1.19% Cu higher up in the holeand deeper hits of 18m at 1.51% Cu including 8m at 2.39% Cu as well as 6m at 1.18% Cu. The higher-grade deeper intercepts correlate with an extension of the DS-21-08 mineralization.

DS-22-10 was designed to test as an infill hole in the northeast part of the target area to follow-up hole DS-22-02 (11m at 1.08% Cu, including 4m at 2.32% Cu).The new hole produced two significant assay intervals: 23m at 1.55% Cu including 12m at 2.50% Cu as well as intercepts of 4m at 1.81% Cu and 7m at 1.12% Cu. The upper intercept is interpreted to represent be the extension of the DS-22-02 mineralization while the lower assay interval is the southern extension of the copper mineralization encountered in DS-11-15 (29m at 1.05% Cu including 7m at 1.94% Cu).

DS-22-11 is an infill hole drilled along the eastern margin of the target zone. This hole cut several mineralized intercepts including: 11m at 1.96% Cu, 6m at 2.40% Cu and 11m at 1.50% Cu including 6m at 2.28% Cu. The copper mineralization encountered is interpreted as the down-dip extension of the DS-22-13 intercept(5m at 1.00% Cu).

DS-22-12 was drilled as an infill hole in the northeast part of the target area to follow-up the copper zone intersected in DS-2202 (11m at 1.08% Cu, including 4m at 2.32% Cu). DS-22-12 encountered three copper zones: 5m at 1.08% Cu, 4m at 1.22% Cu and 11m at 0.90% Cu. The upper intercept is an extension of the DS-22-02 mineralization.

DS-22-13 was planned as an infill hole in the northeast part of the target area to test the up-dip extent of the copper mineralization cut in hole DS-22-11: (11m at 1.96% Cu, 6m at 2.40% Cu and 11m at 1.50% Cu including 6m at 2.28% Cu) The new hole confirmed the up-dip extension of the copper zone with an intercept of 5m at 1.00% Cu.

DS-22-15 was planned to test the for a western extension of the lower intercept in DS-22-12 (11m at 0.90% Cu). Hole DS-22-15 intersected two mineralized zones: 29m at 1.05% Cu including 7m at 1.94% Cu as well as anintercept of 15m at 0.81% Cu including 3m at 1.81% Cu and 3m at 1.34% Cu that confirmed the western extension of the DS-22-12 copper zone.

DS-22-16 was designed as an infill hole that tested a "drilling gap" between a number of mineralized intercepts within the northeastern part of the target. The new hole successfully tested the gap and yielded two intercepts: 4m at 1.17% Cu and 3m at 1.18% Cu.

DS-22-17 was planned as an infill hole in the central part of the target testing a "drilling gap" between several mineralized intercepts. The new hole encountered 6m at 1.15% Cu which is interpreted as a feeder structure for the copper mineralization intersected in historic hole DS-14-12 (20m at 1.53% Cu).

DS-22-18 was designed as an infill hole in the northeast part of the target. The new hole encountered number of narrow zones of anomalous copper mineralization, hosted within an andesitic intrusive. The best intercept reported in DS-22-18 was 6m at 0.96% Cu.

DS-22-19 was designed to test the southwest margin of the target area and probe for a southeast extension of the DS-21-21 high grade copper intercept of 17m at 3.77% Cu. The new hole encountered several narrow zones of moderate grade mineralization which are interpreted to correlate with the high-grade intersections in DS-21-21. DS-22-19 intersected 17m at 0.69%Cu including 2m at 1.93% Cu

DS-22-20 was planned to test for northeast extension of mineralization encountered in drill holes DS-22-02 (11m at 1.08% Cu, including 4m at 2.32% Cu), DS-22-12 (11m at 0.82% Cu) and DS-22-16 (8m at 5.29% Cu and 8m at 3.53% Cu) in the eastern part of the target area. The new hole encountered 4m at 1.02% Cu suggesting the copper mineralized extends in this direction.

Battery Mineral Resources Announces Intercept of 48 Meters of 1.31% Cu From the Cinabrio Norte Target at Its Punitaqui Copper Mine in Chile

Battery Mineral Resources Corp. (TSXV: BMR) (OTCQB: BTRMF) ("Battery" or "BMR" or the "Company") is pleased to announce encouraging drill core assay results from the recently completed Phase 1 2021-2022 exploration and infill diamond drill program focused on extensions of the Cinabrio orebody, the Dalmacia target and the San Andres target within the Punitaqui mine complex ("Punitaqui") in Chile. The Punitaqui mine is slated for resumption of mine operations in the second half of 2022.

The Cinabrio Norte target represents a potential northern extension of the main Cinabrio mine orebody, which was historically the primary source of ore feed to the Punitaqui copper ore concentration plant for eight-plus years. These drill results continue to highlight the presence of strong copper mineralization and the significant vertical extent of the Cinabrio Norte target (see Figure 1).

("Ozzie's"), the Company's U.S. subsidiary of BMR's 100%-owned ESI Energy Services, Inc, which operates in the equipment rental and sales sector of the pipeline and renewable energy space (the "Transaction").

Altech Chemicals Ltd Strategic Partnership Silumina Anodes Qualification

Perth, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Altech Chemicals Ltd (ASX:ATC) (FRA:A3Y) is pleased to announce that it has executed a framework agreement with leading German institute Fraunhofer IKTS ("IKTS"), as a strategic partner to expedite the testing and qualification process for the Company's Silumina AnodesTM product.

IKTS boasts labs, technical centres with outstanding equipment at its sites in Dresden (Saxony), Hermsdorf (Thuringia) and several other sites in Germany. IKTS is considered as one of, if not the leading know-how and research centre for battery materials in the world . IKTS recently opened their Battery Innovation and Technology Center (BITC) in Arnstadt.

The main objective of the strategic partnership is for IKTS to independently test the long-term performance of Altech's Silumina AnodesTM battery material in various battery applications. IKTS, through its extensive lithium-ion battery research and network of partners, will be able provide extensive performance testing of various types of battery applications that will assist the qualification process of the Silumina AnodesTM product for potential customers.

Altech is well funded to complete a pilot plant adjacent to its industrial site in Saxony, Germany, in order to supply commercial samples to potential downstream customers and for the qualification process.

Altech recently completed a pre-feasibility study for a 10,000 tpa Silumina AnodesTM plant in Germany. The Company's silicon graphite composite product not only achieves a much higher energy capacity than the conventional graphite anode, it is also stable during the life of the battery. The Company announced in late 2021 that it had achieved a 30% higher energy battery with improved cyclability or battery life, and is now in the process of commercial development.

With a capital investment of only US$95 million, the pre-feasibility study for the project returns a net present value of US$507 million, with yearly net free cash generated of US$63 million. The internal rate of return of the project is estimated at a very attractive 40%. Altech is quickly advancing the project to the next stage of development.

The Company is well positioned to dramatically reduce supply risks by positioning its operation in Germany and sourcing its graphite and silicon feedstock from European suppliers.

During the recent crisis in Europe forcing supply chain pressures and rising energy prices, it has demonstrated the importance of European material supply for European battery and EV makers. The manufacturing supply risks are becoming increasingly evident, and more focus will be placed on European supply.

About Altech Chemicals Ltd:

Altech Chemicals Limited (ASX:ATC) (FRA:A3Y) is aiming to become one of the world's leading suppliers of 99.99% (4N) high purity alumina (Al2O3) through the construction and operation of a 4,500tpa high purity alumina (HPA) processing plant at Johor, Malaysia. Feedstock for the plant will be sourced from the Company's 100%-owned kaolin deposit at Meckering, Western Australia and shipped to Malaysia.

HPA is a high-value, high margin and highly demanded product as it is the critical ingredient required for the production of synthetic sapphire. Synthetic sapphire is used in the manufacture of substrates for LED lights, semiconductor wafers used in the electronics industry, and scratch-resistant sapphire glass used for wristwatch faces, optical windows and smartphone components. Increasingly HPA is used by lithium-ion battery manufacturers as the coating on the battery's separator, which improves performance, longevity and safety of the battery. With global HPA demand approximately 19,000t (2018), it is estimated that this demand will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 30% (2018-2028); by 2028 HPA market demand will be approximately 272,000t, driven by the increasing adoption of LEDs worldwide as well as the demand for HPA by lithium-ion battery manufacturers to serve the surging electric vehicle market.

5 Top Weekly TSXV Performers: Airborne Survey Boosts Northern Graphite Shares

Broad markets continued to struggle during the last week of the month and second quarter, with many fearing that economic data from the first half of the year will signal a recession.

An hour after the morning bell last Thursday (June 30), the S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index (INDEXTSI:JX) fell to a two year low of 614.34, a 106 point decrease from the beginning of June. Over the border, concerns about the US Federal Reserve’s response to rising inflation weighed heavily on American markets.

During a European Central Bank conference last Wednesday (June 29), Fed Chair Jerome Powell told reporters that the clock is running out on a low-inflation regime. He acknowledged that inflation has “been running for a year,” and said US policy makers will not allow inflation to take hold long term.

Electric Royalties to Sell Two Thirds of Its 1.5% Net Smelter Royalty on the Seymour Lake Lithium Deposit for C$4,000,000 Cash

Electric Royalties to Sell Two Thirds of Its 1.5% Net Smelter Royalty on the Seymour Lake Lithium Deposit for C$4,000,000 Cash

Electric Royalties Ltd. (TSXV:ELEC)(OTCQB:ELECF) ("Electric Royalties" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the signing of an agreement on June 27, 2022 to sell 1% of its existing 1.5% Net Smelter Royalty ("NSR") on the Seymour Lake Lithium Deposit in Ontario, Canada, to Lithium Royalty Corp. ("LRC"). For more information on the Seymour Lake Lithium Deposit, see Electric Royalties' news release on February 17, 2021

Brendan Yurik, CEO of Electric Royalties,commented: "The sale of part of our Seymour Lake royalty will unlock some of the value in our portfolio. The Company acquired the 1.5% NSR in 2021 for 3,000,000shares, prior to the substantial increase of the lithium price this past year1. This partial sale along with the cash from our recent financing will enable us to deploy capital into additional nearer-term production opportunities with a view to increasing cash flow. We believe our current valuation does not reflect the value of our royalty portfolio of 19 royalties acquired to date, with potential for promising cash flow over the next few years."
