E-Tech Resources Inc. (TSXV: REE) (FSE: K2i) ("E-Tech" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce the final batch of assay results from the first diamond drilling campaign ("C1") completed at the Eureka REE Project ("Eureka" or the "Project"), located in central Namibia. Significant intersections include 11.2m @ 1.2% Total Rare Earth Oxide ("TREO") (ED013), 2.2m @ 2.4% TREO (ED014), 8.8m @ 1.0% TREO (ED015) and 6.3m @ 1.9% TREO (ED020). The results from these five holes, all of which intersected mineralisation, have continued to confirm the presence of mineralisation in Zones 1 and 3 at depth and with lateral continuity. Previous diamond drilling results were reported in the press releases dated 10 November 2021 and 10 February 2022.

Elbert Loois, CEO of E-Tech Resources Inc., commented:

"The assay results received to date confirm mineralization to the depth extent of present drilling and along strike between Zones 1 and 3. After receiving these latest assay results, we can now report that work on the update of the current Mineral Resource Estimate has commenced - starting with the resource block model - which is expected to be released in Q2 2022. Additional assay results from the second drilling campaign completed in February 2022 are pending."

The newly received assay results are part of the resource expansion program for Zones 1, 2 and 3, which was completed in late September 2021 totalling 5,761 meters of diamond drilling (DD) in 20 holes. Figure 1 indicates the drill collar positions and the assays received to date from the DD and RC holes completed. These assay results include the newly received batch of 363 samples out of a total of 1,289 samples, representing holes ED013, ED014, ED015, ED018 and ED020.

Blue diamonds are assays received, including the 5 newly received holes ED013, ED014, ED015, ED018, ED020. Red lines represent traces of the DD holes of these new assay results. Red dots are RC holes drilled in 2017.

The assay results from Holes ED013, ED015 and ED018, ED020 support both depth and lateral continuity of REE mineralisation with intercepts recorded to a vertical depth of 250m, compared to a maximum vertical depth of 60m used to complete the current Mineral Resource Estimate ("MRE") prepared by SRK Consulting (UK) ("SRK") with an effective date of 2 August 2021. Assay results from Holes ED013, ED014, ED015, ED018 and ED020 further support the geometric interpretation that the carbonatite host rocks are structurally controlled and may be described as a series of stacked bodies.

The full set of assay results of this drilling programme (RC and DD) will be incorporated into the resource block model, which will then be used as the basis for an update of the current MRE.

A summary of the most significant assay results received from the five (5) diamond drill holes reported above is provided in Table 1.

TABLE 1: Significant intercepts from the outstanding analytical results of diamond drilling (DD) campaign (Jun-Aug '21). Reported intercepts are drilled lengths while the true thickness of the mineralisation is estimated to range between 60 and 80 per cent of the drilled lengths. Further drilling is necessary to establish the true thickness of the mineralisation.

Eureka Technical Disclosure

The Corporation produced its current Mineral Resource Estimate ("MRE") for the Eureka Project with an effective date of 2 August 2021. The MRE was prepared by SRK Consulting (UK) ("SRK"). An Independent Technical Report titled: "Independent Technical Report: Eureka, Rare Earth Project, Namibia" was originally released on the 15 September 2021, supporting the disclosure of the MRE, and is available on SEDAR and the Corporation's website.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control

All E-Tech sample assay results have been independently monitored through a quality assurance / quality control ("QA/QC") program including the insertion of certified reference standards, blanks and duplicate samples. QA/QC samples make up 10% of all samples submitted. Drill core is sawn in half on site and half drill-core samples are securely transported to Activation Laboratories Ltd. sample preparation facility in Windhoek, Namibia. The core is dried, crushed to 90% passing 2 mm, riffle splitting a 250 g sub-sample and pulverizing to 95% passing 105 µm. Sample pulps are sent to Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Ontario, Canada for analysis. REE analysis is by method 8-REE. The sample is milled to 95% -200 mesh. To ensure complete fusion of resistate minerals, lithium metaborate/tetraborate fusion is used with analysis by ICP-OES and ICP-MS.
