- April 24th, 2018

Enertopia Corporation (CNSX:TOP; OTCQB:ENRT) (the “Company” or “Enertopia”) is pleased to announce the following synthetic lithium brine testing update for the recovery of Lithium by our technology partner Genesis Water Technologies Inc. (GWT), a leader in specialized water treatment solutions.

Enertopia Corporation (CNSX:TOP; OTCQB:ENRT) (the “Company” or “Enertopia”) is pleased to announce the following synthetic lithium brine testing update for the recovery of Lithium by our technology partner Genesis Water Technologies Inc. (GWT), a leader in specialized water treatment solutions.

Over the past month, GWT has been performing system optimization tests on the various created synthetic brines by varying the amounts of source rock used in various solution makeups. These variables included rock to liquid ratios, varying pH levels, and source rock leach times.

The created leach brine solutions will be tested independently in each of the process steps of the GWT Enerlet lithium recovery process.

Upon optimization of each process step, the created leach brine solutions will be processed through the entire GWT Enerlet process completely. The finished Li2CO3 product will be dried and analyzed via ICP-AES to meet the required battery grade purity.

All components during the optimization phase of testing have performed as expected. Over the next several weeks, solutions will be run through the optimized process for final testing of li brine solutions and Li2CO3 finished product. Testing to date has been on time and on budget. Based on the remaining test time required and subsequent time for the independent 3rd party labs to perform their testing analysis we still expect to have final 3rd party lab results by the end of May. Upon receiving all independent 3rd party lab results the Company will provide a press release at such time to provide the bench test results.

“Genesis Water Technologies looks forward to the continued optimization of the leach process of the synthetic brine samples and our GWT Enerlet Lithium recovery process. We are enthusiastic to be on the cutting edge of advancements in lithium extraction to provide battery grade lithium to industry,” Stated Technical Manager Nick Nicholas.

NEXT STEPS:

The Company continues to work aggressively to unlock the value of the lithium-bearing rock at and near the surface at the Clayton Valley lithium project in the uplifted block along the eastern flank of Clayton Valley, NV. We are currently compiling data for our first drill program as this will be necessary for selecting the location of source rock for our proposed pilot plant. Other preliminary work includes the review of onsite or offsite processing of the material for the pilot plant and pilot plant location. Due to the excellent infrastructure in the area, the company has several options that are currently being explored.

“Enertopia looks forward to providing updates in the coming weeks as to the results of the bench test analysis and our ongoing project work at our 100% owned Clayton Valley, NV, Lithium project, as well as continuing due diligence in the technology and mineral sectors. Modern technology is revolutionizing ways to mine and protect our environment. We are enthusiastic about becoming leaders in this evolution,” Stated President and CEO Robert McAllister.
