Battery Mineral Resources Corp. Announces the Appointment of Julia Aspillaga to the Board of Directors & Provides Corporate Update

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."

Strong Project Development Scenario for Springdale, International Graphite CEO Says

Purification testwork on graphite concentrates from International Graphite’s (ASX:IG6) Springdale graphite project achieved results ranging from 99.96 percent loss on ignition (LOI) to 99.97 percent LOI, which exceeds the purity requirements of major lithium-ion batteries. Andrew Worland, the company’s managing director and CEO, noted that the project has great attributes that make it stand out.

“It's got a significant resource ... so we'll be mining there for 50 (to) 60 years, and that's still with a lot of exploration potential for the asset,” he explained. "The other attributes of it that makes it unique and compelling for investors are its cost structure, and a lot of that has to do with Mother Nature, frankly. The mineralisation itself is a fine graphite, so we've got a very simple flotation process. ... We have one product, which means a simple flow sheet and lower capital cost."

International Graphite released key findings from its new Springdale-Collie integrated mine-to-market scoping study in January, saying they indicate a multi-decade operating life.
