Rock Tech Lithium Inc. (the "Company" or "Rock Tech") (TSXV:RCK ) (OTC:RCKTF) ( Frankfurt:RJIB) announces that, further to previous news releases on November 4, December 10 and December 18, 2020, the Company has filed a revised Technical Report on SEDAR

The Technical Report titled, "Preliminary Economic Assessment for an Integrated Lithium Hydroxide Operation from the Georgia Lake Lithium Project, Northwest Ontario, Canada" has an effective date of March 15, 2021, and is a revision of the Technical Report, with an effective date of October 30, 2020, previously filed on November 9, 2020.

A comparison of the March 15, 2021, Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") and the previously filed Technical Report is presented in the following table:

The PEA is preliminary in nature, includes Inferred Mineral Resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as Mineral Reserves and there is no certainty that the PEA will be realized. Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

As part of the revised PEA, P&E Mining Consultants Inc. ("P&E") recommended and reviewed contemporary approaches to geostatistical Mineral Resource classification, the compliant cut-off grade determination from PEA parameters, recommended flatter open pit slopes and executable mine designs, and suggested minor modifications to the process plant flowsheet. These changes resulted in modest increases in both the confidence of the Mineral Resource at Georgia Lake and the estimated operating expenses per tonne of lithium hydroxide. While the revised operating expenses demonstrate the potential for Georgia Lake to be among the lowest cost producers of lithium hydroxide, the Company plans further optimization work as part of the planned Pre-Feasibility Study ("PFS") and is optimistic further improvements in operating expenses can be achieved.

Energy Fuels  - Are we seeing the first signs of ramping up?

Energy Fuels - Are we seeing the first signs of ramping up?

Energy Fuels reported 2022-1Q results generally in line with expectations and gave an update on operations. Production and sales remain small (modest Vanadium sales) making bottom line results largely a function of operating costs. A slight increase in operating losses ($10.2m versus $8.8m) and net losses ($14.7m versus $10.9m) reflect additional ramp up costs for UUUU's rare earth element (REE) development and were expected. Development discussions were largely a repeat of the April update. But wait! A uranium supply contract?!?! Management plans to separate REE elements, efforts to access new REE supplies (Monzanite), and its medical isotope recovery partnership. This is all old news. However, management also announced on a call with investors (not in the press release) that it had just signed a uranium supply contract. This is the first contract in several years and a clear sign that the uranium market has improved to a point where UUUU may ramp up production, "perhaps as early as this summer." Read More >>
