  New Tech Lithium Corp. Signs Definitive Option Agreement to Acquire US Bureau of
   Land Management Cobalt Prospecting Permit Applications in the Old Lead Belt of
                    Madison County, Southeast Missouri, USA
Vancouver, B.C., June 4, 2018: New Tech Lithium Corp. (the "Company") (NTM:CSE) is
pleased to announce that it has signed an arm's length option agreement dated May 18, 2018 (the
Missouri Option Agreement") with John Glasscock of Laramie, Wyoming (the "Optionor") to

Fredericktown Mining District Geology and Mineral Deposits
The Fredericktown subdistrict covers approximately 80 square miles in the southeastern Old Lead
Belt and consists of 30+ historic mines, several of which were subsequently consolidated into
                                                                               800   1199 West Hastings Street

larger mine complexes. Lands applied for encompass two Pb-Cu-Ni-Co past producers, one Cu-
Co past producer, and several cobalt prospecting sites.
Cobalt-Copper-Nickel mineralization is associated with Pb Zn deposits throughout the Southeast
Missouri (SEMO) Lead Belt but is especially concentrated in the Fredericktown area
mineralization. Mine LaMotte, the largest mine complex in Fredericktown, is reported to have
produced 15 million tonnes (mT) of ore at average grades of 2.7 % Pb, 0.69 % Cu, 0.29 % Ni, and
0.23% Co, or 34,500 tonnes cobalt (75.9-million pounds cobalt) (USGS OFR 81-518). Significant
production also occurred at the similar sized Madison Mine complex from which grade and
tonnage are unknown, although an existing (unmined) resource at the Madison Mine, determined
from drilling in the 1980's and 1990's, was reported to contain 6.6 mT @ 0.31% Co, 0.47 % Ni
and 0.74% Cu, or 20,460 tonnes cobalt (45.1 million pounds cobalt). A mine plan was developed
in 2001 for 2.2 mT grading 0.54% Co, 0.82% Ni, and O.92% Cu (11,880 tonnes cobalt, or 26,14
million pounds cobalt) (Anshutz Mining and US Cobalt, CDNX:USC, 2001). It was recently
reported (April 14, 2018) that the Madison Mine has been sold to Missouri Cobalt, LLC who has
stated plans to initiate mining in 2020. The Higdon Mine (Doe Run Resource Company), located
in the eastern part of the Fredericktown subdistrict, is also reported to have an undeveloped primary
lead resource of 14 mT with an average grade of 0.14% Co and 0.17% Ni or 19,600 tonnes cobalt
(43,120,000 pounds cobalt) (Para. L. A., 2009). Note that the historic mines and mineralization
mentioned above are not located on our newly acquired Federal Cobalt Prospect Permit
Applications and are not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on the NTM property,
although they are all within the same Fredericktown Sub-District of the Old Lead Belt Mining
New Tech Lithium's property applications all lie within a maximum distance of two miles from
the current historic Fredericktown Mining District boundary and encompass lithostratigraphic and
structural attributes deemed favorable for the discovery of new deposits (Anderson K. H., 1983,
USGS, MF-1002). The area's high cobalt prospectivity is further evidenced by a unique regional
cluster of 15 small, historic Pb-Zn-Cu-Ni-Co and/or Cu-Co past producers, three of which are
encompassed by lands under NTM application (U.S. Bureau of Mines, Minerals Availability
System (MAS)). The area is thought to be underexplored due to extensive cover and historic focus
on the very large Pb deposits discovered previously to the north when Pb was the primary focus
of mining in the area (Missouri Geologic Survey, personal communication).
Lead-Zinc + (Co-Cu-Ni) deposits are hosted in the lower Cambrian Bonterre Formation carbonate
rocks and occasionally in the underlying LaMotte Formation sandstones. Cambrian and younger
carbonate and clastic sedimentary rocks uncomformably overlie a large Precambrian magmatic
complex. The SEMO Lead Belt is the "type location" for Mississippi Valley Type (MVT)
carbonate-hosted Pb Zn deposits which occur in the midcontinent U.S. and worldwide. The
SEMO Lead Belt deposits are unique with respect to associated Co-Cu-Ni mineralization and low
Zn concentrations when compared to other MVT districts. In general, Lead Belt deposits are

stratiform, greater than 10-meters thick, and laterally extensive, potentially enabling bulk
underground mining via room and pillar mining methods.
New Tech Lithium Plans Going Forward
New Tech Lithium have received a request from the US Bureau of Land Management to submit
an Exploration Plan acknowledging the receipt and preliminary adjudication of Prospecting Permit
Applications. The Exploration Plan is under development and will generally apply current SE
Missouri Co-Ni-Cu deposit models utilizing data from modern geophysical methodology and
stream sediment geochemistry to facilitate targeting test drill holes. Approval of the Exploration
Plan and the issuance of a Prospecting Permit is anticipated by 2018 Q4. Further, NTM will
continue to research the geology and mineralization controls of the cobalt-prospective
Fredericktown Mining Subdistrict to refine potential exploration models and more efficiently focus
the upcoming exploration program and aid acquisition of additional cobalt properties in the area.
