ACME Lithium Inc. (CSE: ACME) (OTCQB: ACLHF) (the "Company", or "ACME") is pleased to report that its recent geological field review and sampling program at Fish Lake Valley, Nevada has resulted in surface lithium values up to 410 ppm lithium to indicate a mineral process was active during deposition of the underlying sediments. In addition, barium analyses to 1,800 ppm support that the mineral process was active during deposition of the underlying sediments. See results in link to table below.
ACME holds a 1,620-acre FLV lode mining claim block in Fish Lake Valley, Esmerelda County, Nevada. The property had previously been mapped and sampled with more anomalous analyses of 200 to 260 ppm lithium towards the bottom of the washes along the range front of the claim area. It is believed that the current erosion surface could be exposing the top of a stratigraphic deposit with active lithium mineralization, which is significant in the context of neighbouring Ioneer's Rhyollite Ridge Lithium-Boron project 4 miles to the northeast where the lithium-boron mineralization is in one layer of the rocks filling the valley.
Having shown that fine sediments the same age as Clayton Valley, the epicenter of lithium development in the United States, this study confirms occurrences are on the Property and that some beds are enriched in lithium. Further analysis and evaluation will be done to determine appropriate drilling potential as only the visually uppermost 25 feet of the lithified fine sediments are exposed in the washes.

Information inferred from the interpretation of drilling and other sampling results may also be deemed to be forward-looking statements, as it constitutes a prediction of what might be found to be present when and if a project is actually developed. These forward-looking statements are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties which could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those reflected in the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation: risks related to fluctuations in metal prices; uncertainties related to raising sufficient financing to fund the planned work in a timely manner and on acceptable terms; changes in planned work resulting from weather, logistical, technical or other factors; the possibility that results of work will not fulfill expectations and realize the perceived potential of the Company's properties; risk of accidents, equipment breakdowns and labour disputes or other unanticipated difficulties or interruptions; the possibility of cost overruns or unanticipated expenses in the work program; the risk of environmental contamination or damage resulting from the Company's operations and other risks and uncertainties.
