Battery Mineral Resources Corp. (TSXV: BMR) ("BMR" "Battery" or the "Company") is very pleased to announce the appointment of Julia B. Aspillaga Rodriguez ("Julia Aspillaga") to the board of directors of the company. Julia Aspillaga is a mining executive and partner of several mining exploration companies having worked in Chile and in several other Latin American countries since the 1980's. At present, Miss Aspillaga is Managing Partner of Andeak Global Management, a firm providing mining exploration services to several international companies, including Lowell Mineral Exploration, Orestone Resources (Canada), and Emerita Resources which has exploration projects in Spain.

Miss Aspillaga studied at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, graduating as an English teacher in 1977, then completed studies and graduated in Business Administration in 1979. Miss Aspillaga has participated in the discovery and development of several mining projects, including as a partner of Dr. David Lowell in the San Cristobal gold project, in Region II, Chile at the end of the 1980's. In the 1990's she was manager of Bema Gold in Chile, a company that developed the Refugio gold deposit in Region III, Atacama-Chile, that was previously exploited by Kinross Gold Corp. (Canada). From the year 2000 to date, Miss Aspillaga has participated as manager and/or management advisor for various international companies including Mineral Resource Development (Great Britain), Yorkton Securities (Canada), Endeavour Financial (Canada), Galileo Minerals (Canada), and Global Hunter Corp (Canada).

Battery's Chairman of the Board of Directors Lazaros Nikeas states, "On behalf of the Board of Directors, we are delighted to welcome Julia to the Board of Directors of BMR. Julia's decades of experience in the discovery and development of mining projects throughout Chile and Latin America will be invaluable as we progress towards accomplishing our goals of restarting mining operations at Punitaqui, establishing positive cash flow and using Punitaqui as a platform to scale the Company."

Corporate Update - Mine Manager & Water Supply

The company is delighted to announce that it has hired Mr. Giglio Barlaro Anes as the Punitaqui Mine General Manager. Mr. Barlaro, a native of Chile, is a mining engineer and holds a Master's degree in Business Administration with more than 25 years of experience in the areas of operations, technical services and projects in open pit and underground mining. Most recently, Mr. Barlaro was Mine Operations Manager from 2020 to 2022 at Newmont Mining's Cerro Negro underground gold mine in Argentina, one of the largest underground gold mines in Latin America. Prior to that, Mr. Barlaro was Mine Operations Manager at Lundin Mining's Candelaria mining complex in Chile that includes three underground copper mines and a large open pit operation from 2015 to 2020. Mr. Barlaro has also held senior operational roles with Codelco, Sociedad Química y Minera (SQM), Anglo American and SCM at mines in Chile as well as at Homestake Mining (a division of Barrick Gold) in Argentina.

BMR is also pleased to announce it has secured additional water supply for the resumptions of operations at its Punitaqui copper mine complex. The Company is currently able to source water from Company owned wells on its property and has now added an additional supply of water for Punitaqui. The company has secured procurement for a minimum of 400,000 and a maximum of 600,000 cubic meters of water per year through an agreement with local Chilean water supply company, SAGA. Between the water BMR is able to pump from its own wells and this new supply agreement with SAGA, BMR is confident it has a sufficient supply of water to resume full operations at its Punitaqui copper mining complex.

Battery CEO Martin Kostuik states: "We are thrilled to welcome Giglio as the Mine General Manager of the Punitaqui mine. As we transition into a cash-flow generative copper producer in the near-term, Giglio's experience and successful track-record of mine management, project and technical management, including mine start up, will prove especially valuable. We look forward to welcoming him to the growing operational team and also to the local Chilean communities of Punitaqui and Ovalle."

Battery Mineral Resources Corp. Provides Corporate Update on Its Path to Production at Its Punitaqui Mine

Battery Mineral Resources Corp. (TSXV: BMR) ("BMR" "Battery" or the "Company") is very pleased to provide a broad corporate update on its recent accomplishments in Chile as it moves its Punitaqui mine complex towards a production restart. The Punitaqui mine and mill have been on continuous care and maintenance since April 2020, when copper prices as low as $2.00 per pound forced the previous operators to cease operations.

Drilling and Updated 43-101 Resource Estimates
The Phase 1 drill program at the Punitaqui Mining complex was completed in May and all assays have now been received and reported. The final tally for the Phase 1 program totalled nearly 33,000 meters ("m") of diamond drilling focusing on three zones: San Andres, Dalmacia and Cinabrio Norte. The results of these drilling campaigns will be combined with historical drilling and resource estimates will be calculated and reported. In addition, the current remaining resources for the Cinabrio mine, which fed the Punitaqui copper processing plant for eight-plus years, will be included in the report.

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).

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.
