Noram Completes Major Milestone: Infill Drill Program for Pre-Feasiblity Study Completion and Commencement of Plan of Operations

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 12, 2022 / Sandy MacDougall, CEO of Noram Lithium Corp. (“Noram” or the “Company“) (TSXV:NRM)(OTCQB:NRVTF)(Frankfurt:N7R) is pleased to announce” that the Company has successfully completed the Phase VI infill drill program on the Zeus Lithium Project in Clayton Valley, Nevada. The Zeus Project contains a current NI 43-101 measured and indicated resource estimate* of 363 million tonnes grading 923 ppm lithium, and an inferred resource of 827 million tonnes grading 884 ppm lithium utilizing a 400 ppm Li cut-off. In December 2021, a robust PEA** indicated an After-Tax NPV(8) of US$1.3 Billion and IRR of 31% using US$9,500/tonne Lithium Carbonate Equivalent (LCE). Using the LCE long term forecast of US$14,000/tonne, the PEA indicates an NPV (8%) of approximately US$2.6 Billion and an IRR of 52% at US$14,000/tonne LCE.

All 12 of the Phase VI proposed holes were completed to, or beyond, their anticipated depths for a total of 5246 ft (1599 m) of drilling. Most of the holes were drilled with HQ-size core with a diameter of 2.5 inches (63.5 mm). However, 4 of the holes were drilled with PQ-size (3.35 inches, 85 mm diameter) to be used for the ongoing metallurgical test work. The samples from the core have been hand-delivered to ALS Laboratory in Reno, Nevada for processing. QA/QC samples have been inserted into the sample stream to confirm sample results.

“This is a significant milestone for Noram” stated CEO and Director, Sandy MacDougall “with the completion of this drilling, the inferred resource calculation will be confidently upgraded to the indicated category. This marks one of the final steps required to complete the Prefeasibility Study (“PFS”) in the near term. While we have only received results from 2 of the 12 holes, the results supersede our expectations, and we can confidently say that a PFS superior to the PEA would not be surprising. All assays are being processed on a rush basis and we expect to receive the balance of the results shortly. Noram is on track to complete the PFS in the fall of 2022 while simultaneously working on new and innovative solutions to become a leader in the green technology space.”

The Company has also begun initial preparation for the completion of a Plan of Operations (PoO) with the Tonopah, Nevada field office of the Bureau of Land Management. Results from the Phase VI drilling will be needed to determine whether additional drilling, bulk sampling, etc. will be required to carry the project through the PFS and DFS stages. These elements are essential to determine what goes into the PoO. The DFS is expected to follow closely on the heels of this fall’s PFS.

Noram Receives Results for CVZ-72 with the Longest and Highest-Grade Intercept from all of the Zeus Drilling to Date

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 5, 2022 / Sandy MacDougall, CEO of Noram Lithium Corp. (“Noram” or the “Company“) (TSXV:NRM | OTCQB:NRVTF | Frankfurt:N7R) is pleased to announce the successful completion of CVZ-72 (PH-06) and release of the final assay results. The Company completed core hole CVZ-72 at a depth of 428 feet (130.5 m). Sampling for assay began at 60 ft (18.3 m) and continued to the bottom of the hole, an interval thickness of 368 ft (112.2 m) was intersected, which was the entire assayed portion of the hole. The hole ended in mineralization and the weighted average lithium values present were as follows:

Figure 1. Comparative stratigraphy and assay results for drill holes CVZ-72 as compared to CVZ-53 and CVZ-68, which were drilled as part of the Phases IV and V programs. CVZ-53 and CVZ-68 both had long intercepts of high grade lithium mineralization. The histogram on the sides of the holes are the composited lithium grades in ppm Li. The cross section has a 4X vertical exaggeration.

“CVZ-72 was the second hole completed in Noram’s 12-hole Phase VI drilling program. These assays represent the longest and highest-grade interval of lithium mineralization intersected to date on the Zeus property. This hole also clearly reaffirms the consistently high lithium grades across this blanket-like mineral deposit. If the program continues to produce results such as these, we could reasonably expect our PFS to outshine our PEA. Ending in mineralization at depths such as these suggests even greater potential for the size and extent of this resource” comments Brad Peek, VP of Exploration and geologist on all six phases of Noram’s Clayton Valley exploration drilling.

Noram Completes CVZ-72 At 428ft (130.m) With Near Surface Mineralization, Over 323ft (98.4m) Of Visually Ric

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 7, 2022 / Sandy MacDougall, CEO of Noram Lithium Corp. (“Noram” or the “Company“) (TSXV:NRM)(OTCQB:NRVTF)(Frankfurt:N7R) is pleased to report that the Company has completed hole CVZ-72 (PH-06) on its Zeus lithium clay deposit in Nevada to a total depth of 428ft (130.5m). Visual inspection of the core confirmed that clays previously shown to be high in lithium grades appeared near surface and extended down to a depth of 400ft (121.9m) for a total drilled intersection of 323ft (98.4m).

Figure 1 – Two boxes of core from CVZ-72. The box on the left is from depths of 253-261.5ft (77.1-79.7m) and shows some of the black, highly reduced mudstone/claystone. The box on the right is from 288.5-298ft (87.9-90.8m) and is typical of the somewhat less reduced blue mudstone/claystone. From past drilling experience, both lithologic units are usually high in lithium content.

Figure 2 – Location of all past drill holes (Phase I to Phase V) previously completed in addition to the 12 proposed holes for Phase V1 currently underway. Phase VI holes are indicated in purple.

“We are incredibly pleased with the results from CVZ-72 albeit not surprised. Drill hole CVZ-72 was completed at 428ft (130.5m) and had predictably encouraging lithologies. Past programs have shown this to be highly mineralized material. This is exactly what one would like to see with infill drilling. Figure 3 below shows a cross section with CVZ-72 and two adjacent, previously drilled holes. The blue, green, black and magenta layers in the figure indicate claystone layers that have been shown to host the higher lithium assays from past drilling as is shown by the histograms of lithium values on the two adjacent holes. The adjacent CVZ-68 was one of the better high-grade holes with a very thick clay intercept. The drill intercepts thus far continue to be very encouraging” commented Brad Peek M.Sc. CPG., VP of Exploration and Qualified Person for this and all 5 of the previous drilling phases of Noram’s Zeus lithium property.

Figure 3. Comparative lithology for drill holes CVZ-72 as compared to CVZ-53 and CVZ-68, which were drilled as part of the Phase IV and V programs. CVZ-53 and CVZ-68 had long intercepts of high grade lithium. All of the lithology units except the brown mudstones have relatively high lithium concentrations in previous drill holes on the property. The histogram on the sides of CVZ-53 and CVZ-68 are the 5m composited lithium grades in ppm Li. The section has a 4X vertical exaggeration.https://embed.fireplace.yahoo.com/embed?ctrl=Monalixa&m_id=monalixa&m_mode=document&site=sports&os=android&pageContext=%257B%2522ctopid%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1480989%253B1481489%2522%252C%2522hashtag%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1480989%253B1481489%2522%252C%2522wiki_topics%2522%253A%2522Nor-Am_Cup%253BLithium_carbonate%253BNevada%253BCompany%253BLithium%253BZeus%253BDrilling%2522%252C%2522lmsid%2522%253A%2522a077000000LnOyOAAV%2522%252C%2522revsp%2522%253A%2522accesswire.ca%2522%252C%2522lpstaid%2522%253A%25226625f156-2f2a-3a3c-a183-387a2f813ed1%2522%252C%2522pageContentType%2522%253A%2522story%2522%257D

Noram Completes Cvz-70 At 463ft (141.1m) With Near Surface Mineralization and Over 350ft (106.7m) Of Visually Rich Clays

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / March 31, 2022 / Sandy MacDougall, CEO of Noram Lithium Corp. (“Noram” or the “Company“) (TSXV:NRM | OTCQB:NRVTF | Frankfurt:N7R) is pleased to report that the Company has completed hole CVZ-70 on its Zeus lithium clay deposit in Nevada to a total depth of 463 ft (141.1m). When logging and visual inspection of the core was completed, it was noted that mineralization appeared immediately near surface and extended down to approximately 387.0 ft (138m) for a total intersection of 380ft (116m).

Figure 1 shows the Zeus project drilling to date with the various drilling phases color coded. The arrow points to the recently completed CVZ-70 hole. Other planned Phase VI holes are indicated in purple.

Figure 1 – Location of all past drill holes (Phase I to Phase V) previously completed in addition to the 12 proposed holes for Phase V1 currently underway. CVZ-70 and other planned Phase VI holes are indicated in purple.

“Drill hole CVZ-70 is an incredibly encouraging hole for Noram. Figure 2 below shows a cross section with CVZ-70 and two adjacent, previously drilled, holes. The blue, green, black and magenta layers in the figure indicate claystone layers that have been shown to host the higher lithium assays from past drilling. The 380-foot (116-meter) intersection in CVZ-62 was one of the thickest claystone intersections by far. CVZ-70 appears to likely rival this and prior holes from prior programs.

The Zeus project has undergone five previous drill campaigns (2016 – 2021), building one of the most significant lithium resources in Clayton Valley, Nevada. Noram is now proceeding with a Phase VI drill campaign, which is comprised of 12 “in-fill” holes to an approximate depth of 120m (393 ft). The program is expected to upgrade approximately 175 million tonnes of the current Inferred resource to the Indicated category which will have a significant impact on the PFS. Drilling will also provide fresh material for geotechnical and ongoing metallurgical testing and is an important data gathering exercise to be incorporated into the PFS, where the primary objectives are to upgrade and convert resources to reserves in developing the PFS mine plan and to obtain material for further metallurgical testing. Additional important objectives are to obtain additional information on lithology, mineralization, and clay speciation. Noram’s team has commenced preparing the drill pads and mobilizing a drill rig. Drilling will be carried out 24 hours a day with 2 teams until completion.

The Phase VI drilling program has been specifically designed to upgrade a large portion of the current Inferred resource to the Indicated category using the least number of drillholes. Noram expects this updated NI 43-101 compliant resource model to be complete by Q3, 2022.https://embed.fireplace.yahoo.com/embed?ctrl=Monalixa&m_id=monalixa&m_mode=document&site=sports&os=android&pageContext=%257B%2522ctopid%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%2522%252C%2522hashtag%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%2522%252C%2522wiki_topics%2522%253A%2522Nor-Am_Cup%253BLithium_carbonate%253BCompany%253BMineral_resource_classification%253BZeus%253BNevada%253BBureau_of_Land_Management%2522%252C%2522lmsid%2522%253A%2522a077000000LnOyOAAV%2522%252C%2522revsp%2522%253A%2522accesswire.ca%2522%252C%2522lpstaid%2522%253A%2522f0a6d24f-ca2e-3331-bb02-9dadf8d3cd2b%2522%252C%2522pageContentType%2522%253A%2522story%2522%257D
