EMP METALS TESTS UP TO 148 MG/L LITHIUM AT MANSUR PROJECT, SASKATCHEWAN

EMP Metals Corp. (CSE: EMPS) (OTCQB: EMPPF) ("EMP Metals" or the "Company ") is pleased to announce positive results from the recently completed flow test of its second test well, 14-36-009-13W20, in the Mansur permit area located in southeast Saskatchewan ( Figure 1 ).  Third-party laboratory testing returned lithium concentrations in the Duperow formation up to 148 mgl. 1

The flow test confirmed high lithium concentrations ranging from 77 to 148 mg/l within 3 zones targeted for future development within the Duperow beds ( Figure 2 ).
The Wymark C zone tested 147 to 148 mg/l from a 11.6 m thick zone with average porosity of 10.4%.
The Wymark E zone tested 101 to 106 mg/l from a 4.9 m thick zone with average porosity of 12.7%.
The Wymark B zone tested 77 mg/l from a 16.9m thick zone with average porosity of 13.8%.

These results now allow for the development of a four layer lithium brine project with brine concentrations expected in the 77 to 148 mg/l range. The Company expects to develop the four individual zones utilizing horizontal wellbores.

Rob Gamley , CEO of EMP Metals, commented, "The Company is excited to have the opportunity to develop one of the highest concentration brine accumulations within Canada.  The test results of this second well confirm the high lithium concentrations and resource potential identified during the testing of our first well.   Lithium concentrations at 100 to 148 mg/l in combination with having no H2S or oilfield contaminants, and a relatively shallow depth of 1800m , should give this project a distinct competitive advantage with respect to capital costs and operating costs per tonne."

The Company is currently finalizing an 43-101 resource report for the area which is expected to be completed within Q1, 2023.  In parallel with that the Company has begun working on the development plan and PEA which it hopes to have complete early in Q2 of 2023.  Towards that goal the Company is currently working with a third party Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) technology provider who is running the Company brine through pilot testing during Q1 of 2023 in order to finalize the process flow and costing required for a complete Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA).

Mr. Gamley stated, "We are very pleased with the continued strong results from the Mansur Project area which has clear potential for development of the 56 sections (35,840 acres of land)."

The Company continues to work on testing and evaluation of its Viewfield area, 35 miles southeast of Mansur, where the Company has an additional 74 sections (47,360 acres of land).  In total the Company has over 200,000 acres of lithium rights within the Duperow lithium fairway in Saskatchewan .

Lithium Brine Properties Joint Venture

The lithium brine properties consist of 37 permits totalling 212,633 acres (86,050 hectares) of Subsurface Crown Mineral Dispositions within the Duperow lithium fairway in Saskatchewan.

EMP Metals holds 75% of the joint venture with ROK Resources Inc. (ROK.V) holding the balance.

EMP METALS SPUDS FIRST LITHIUM WELL IN VIEWFIELD, SASKATCHEWAN

EMP Metals Corp. (CSE: EMPS) (OTC: EMPPF) ("EMP" or the "Company ") is pleased to announce Hub City Lithium Corp. ("HCL"), a subsidiary company to EMP, has spud its first targeted lithium well in Viewfield, Saskatchewan.  Drilling operations are expected to be completed by November 14 th 2022.  Following drilling, testing of the Duperow formation to evaluate brine concentration and flow rates will commence.

Brine sampling of a vertical wellbore on HCL's Mansur property returned lithium concentrations of up to 96 mg/l in the Duperow formation.  EMP is concurrently testing a second well on the Mansur permit (see press release dated October 31, 2022 ), and drilling the Viewfield well approximately 40 km to the southeast.  Both of these tests offset the 14-12 Midale well, which has similar geology, and tested lithium concentrations up to 190 mg/l. 1 Positive results at Viewfield and Mansur have the potential to establish a lithium brine resource that is contiguous over several townships of HCL's land holdings.
