Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 24, 2023) - IMAGINE LITHIUM INC. (TSXV: ILI) (OTCQB: ARXRF) (the "Company" or "Imagine") is pleased to provide an update on its ongoing exploration activities at the Jackpot lithium project, located within the rapidly emerging lithium camp in the Georgia Lake area, approximately 140 km north-east of Thunder Bay, Ontario (Figure 1). The Jackpot property is characterized by swarms of mineralized lithium-bearing pegmatite dikes distributed across the 18,800 ha land package.

Highlight holes from the ongoing drill program at the Jackpot Main Zone include:

- 14.35 m grading 1.22% Li2O in hole JPMET-2023-03;
- 12.05m grading 1.06% Li2O in hole JPMET-2023-02;
- 9.98m grading 1.14% Li2O in hole JPMET-2023-01B; and
- 9.0m grading 1.00% Li2O in hole JP-2023-P1.

Drilling is currently ongoing at the Jackpot Main Zone with the goal of expanding the lithium resources. Areas being tested included the northern area of the Jackpot Main Zone where the Company is seeing another stacked dike and intercepting pegmatites up to 20m in thickness, as well as the eastern extension of the Jackpot Main Zone which can expand the mineralization along strike (see Figure 2). The terrane north of the Jackpot Main Zone, also includes the Point Lithium area which will be drilled this winter.

J.C. St-Amour, President of Imagine, commented, "We are expecting our exploration drilling program to continue into the fall and winter months as we evaluate areas to the north and east of the Jackpot Main Zone to continue building on historical resources and add to the success of the 2022 drill program, which nearly doubled the length of the mineralized lithium zone to 900 m. Drilling will also continue to investigate targets outside the Jackpot Main Zone, including the Point Lithium area, which appears to parallel the Jackpot pegmatite dikes."

*Apparent thickness

The 2023 summer drill program also investigated the 500-m long spodumene-bearing pegmatite located 1.8 km NW of the Jackpot Main Zone (Figure 3). Eleven holes totalling 1,689 m were completed and traced a continuous pegmatite that appears open to the east and west. The best intercept yielded 1.31 % Li2O over 4.15 m. This EW-trending dike may be associated with the Point Lithium granitic pegmatite and merits further investigation.

In addition, a drilling program tested the 'SW pegmatites', located 1.4 km SW of Jackpot (Figure 3), where channel samples in 2022 returned 10.3 m grading 1.23% Li2O and 10.0 m grading 1.02% Li2O. Twenty-two diamond drill holes were completed totaling 3,093 m. Lithium concentrations appear to decrease west of the main showing. The area to the east of main spodumene-bearing dikes remains to be drilled.

The best intersections from three holes in these areas are presented in Table 1 and Figure 3.

Till Sampling

A large campaign of till sampling was carried out this season, targeting the less explored areas of the property. These areas have a significant potential for discovery of new spodumene-bearing pegmatites. Grids of 200 m x 100 m were implemented to collect C-Horizon material (basal till). Preliminary results from the high-potential areas lying to the north and southeast of the Main Jackpot Zone and covering the 500 m and Point Lithium pegmatites indicate a significant number of till samples having lithium concentrations > 40 ppm (40-163 ppm). These lithium values extend over an area of 4.2 km2 located between the two pegmatite sites (Figure 3). The Company believes this represents significant exploration potential and plans to systematically drill the area over the winter months.

Prospecting and Sampling

A prospecting and sampling program covering potentially fertile zones for discovering Li-rich pegmatite dikes was recently completed. Systematic rock sampling of granitic pegmatite dikes and granitic plutons was carried out in the southeastern and southwestern areas of the property around Cosgrave Lake and in the northeastern sections on the shore and islands of Barbara Lake (Figure 4). The selection of exploration targets was largely based on the proximity of granitic rocks having chemical signatures and mineralogy (ex: muscovite, biotite, tourmaline, garnet) that could indicate the occurrence of spodumene-bearing pegmatite dikes at their periphery. The Company intentionally chose areas with limited historical exploration and will develop further exploration programs based on the coming results from these sampling programs. The Company is awaiting final assay results which will help to conduct follow-up exploration.

QA/QC Protocol

Imagine Lithium implemented a strict QA/QC protocol in processing all rock samples collected from the core material obtained from the Jackpot property. The protocol included the insertion and monitoring of appropriate reference materials, in this case high concentration and low concentration certified OREAS lithium standards, blanks and duplicates, to validate the accuracy and precision of the assay results. All collected core rock samples were put in sturdy plastic bags, tagged, and sealed in the core shack under the supervision of professional geologists. From 1 to 2 kg of till material was collected, cleaned of coarse pebbles (> 16 mm), put in Kraft paper sample envelopes, and stowed in plastic bags for transport to the core shack in Nipigon. For each sample collected; the sample number, UTM coordinates, and a brief material description were systematically noted. The samples were dried for at least 48h at the core shack. All sample bags containing rock or soil material were put in rice pouches and kept securely before being sent by road transport to the AGAT Laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Lithium was analyzed by Sodium Peroxide Fusion with ICP-OES and ICP-MS Finish.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 4, 2023) - IMAGINE LITHIUM INC. (TSXV: ILI) (OTCQB: ARXRF) (the "Company" or "Imagine") is pleased to launch a property wide exploration program on the ~18,800 ha Jackpot Lithium property, following the recent closing of a $9.1 Million private placement financing (press release April 28, 2023). The extensive exploration program will consist of a minimum of 10,000 metres of diamond drilling on the Jackpot property. The diamond drill campaign will focus on expansion of the Jackpot Main Zone as well as several new lithium bearing pegmatite targets to the west, northwest, and northeast, covering a trend of more than 3 km (Figure 1). In addition, the Company has engaged a team of geologists to conduct a large prospecting and geological survey, accompanied by rock and soil sampling. For the first time, Imagine's exploration program will cover the entirety of the vast Jackpot land package. It is designed to identify new lithium exploration targets and investigate numerous known pegmatite occurrences throughout the property (see Figure 2). Finally, Imagine intends to carry out a high-resolution property-wide geophysical survey to identify potential pegmatites that may be hidden under groundcover.

J.C. St-Amour, President and CEO of Imagine, commented, "We are well capitalized to accelerate and greatly expand our exploration and development activities at the Jackpot project. Our goal is to increase the historical resources, test additional known pegmatites for potential satellite deposits, and to complete a comprehensive prospecting and sampling program of the entirety of the large Jackpot land package to identify additional drill targets. Lithium bearing pegmatites are generally found in swarms and we have already identified several that need to be tested through drilling. I am confident there are further discoveries to be made at Jackpot and we are well positioned to make them in the coming exploration season."

The Jackpot Main Zone remains open along strike, therefore expansion drilling will focus on testing extensions to the east and north. Exploration drilling will focus on targets identified outside of the main zone, including an area where a lithium baring pegmatite was traced over 500 m. These targets have the potential to add additional lithium deposits to the Jackpot project (Figure 1).
