The Company expects to publish an NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate by the end of 2024 which will include drill results from the current program. The distinguishing feature of the Jackpot Lithium project is the existing infrastructure in the area (roads, power, labour force) and the proximity to a major port and elevates it from more remote lithium projects. This infrastructure is expected to positively impact the overall economics of the project.

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. High and low concentration certified lithium standards, blanks and duplicates are used 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 a professional geologist. The sample number, depth and brief description of each sample is logged and entered to a digital database. Samples were split using a diamond saw with half of the sample remaining in the core box and the other being placed in a labelled sample bag. Duplicate samples were quarter split and placed into individual sample bags.

All sample bags were put into rice bags and stored securely before being delivered to AGAT Laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Samples are processed and crushed at the AGAT facility in Thunder Bay. Lithium was analyzed by Sodium Peroxide Fusion with ICP-OES and ICP-MS Finish.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 16, 2024) - IMAGINE LITHIUM INC. (TSXV: ILI) (OTCQB: ARXRF) (the "Company" or "Imagine") is pleased to provide significant near surface drill results from its ongoing drilling program at the Jackpot lithium project, located within the rapidly emerging lithium camp in the Georgia Lake area, approximately 140 km northeast of Thunder Bay, Ontario (Figure 1). The Jackpot property is characterized by swarms of mineralized lithium-bearing granitic pegmatite dikes distributed across an 18,800 ha land package.

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

- 15.77 m grading 1.08% Li2O from 19.2 m in hole JP-MAIN-2023-06

- Including 6.00 m grading 2.04% from 20.2 m

- 5.30 m grading 1.68% Li2O from 2.7 m in hole JPMET-2023-01B

- 7.0 m grading 1.03% Li2O from 40 m in hole JP-2023-P6

Results announced today demonstrate the near surface growth potential surrounding the Jackpot Main Zone (Table 1). Drilling is currently ongoing at the Jackpot Main Zone which consist of multiple stacked dikes covering a surface area of approximately 1 km by 400 m. The goal of the current drilling program is to define and expand the historical lithium resource. Areas being tested included the northern area of the Jackpot Main Zone where the Company is seeing another stacked dike, as well as the eastern extension of the Jackpot Main Zone which can expand the mineralization along strike (Figure 2).

J.C. St-Amour, President of Imagine, commented, "We are pleased to see continued near-surface mineralization that we believe will add significantly to historical resources at Jackpot. We look forward to publishing a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate in the coming months. Drilling is also advancing on targets outside the Jackpot Main Zone, including the Point Lithium area, which is an exciting new zone that appears to parallel the Jackpot Main Zone pegmatite dikes."

The Company expects to publish a NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate in the first half of 2024 which will include results from drilling up to the end of 2023. Existing infrastructure in the area (roads, power, labour force) and the proximity to a major port is a distinguishing feature of the Jackpot lithium project which differentiates it from more remote lithium projects. This infrastructure should positively impact the overall project economics in the future.

The Jackpot Main Zone consists of five stacked pegmatite dike sheets of varying thickness, called Pegmatite A through E (Figure 3). The pegmatite sheets generally have an east-west strike and dip shallowly to the north (Figure 3). Drilling will continue to expand Pegmatite A and Pegmatite C up-dip and to the east, while the north zone will continue to be expanded down dip from the current intercepts. An updated geological model will assist with drill targeting and the advancement of the NI 43-101 resource estimate.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 16, 2023) - IMAGINE LITHIUM INC. (TSXV: ILI) (OTCQB: ARXRF) (the "Company" or "Imagine") is pleased to announce assay results from its ongoing drill program 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 (see Figure 1).

Highlights of the assay results reported today include:

The 2023 drill program to date has focused on the Jackpot Main Zone to increase the drill density. The 2022 drill program nearly doubled the mineralized lithium zone by increasing the strike length by 400 metres to the east. The gently dipping zone now extends a total of 900 metres along strike and 300 metres down dip, to a depth of 200 metres. The zone consists of multiple stacked spodumene-rich pegmatite dikes. The results reported today are from the Jackpot Main Zone (see Figure 2) and are summarized in Table 1 below.

J.C. St-Amour, President of Imagine, commented, "The results announced today continue to demonstrate the stacked nature of the pegmatites at Jackpot, with multiple intercepts in the majority of drill holes. With our recently closed financing, we expect to resume drilling in June following the spring break-up. We will be drilling several known untested mineralized pegmatite dikes beyond the Jackpot Main Zone with a view to identifying additional zones and adding lithium tonnage to the project. This summer promises to be a very active exploration season for Imagine Lithium with drilling, prospecting and geophysics all planned."

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).

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 15, 2023) - IMAGINE LITHIUM INC. (TSXV: ILI) (OTCQB: ARXRF) (the "Company" or "Imagine") is pleased to announce significant assay results from its 2022 drill program 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 (see Figure 1).

The 2022 drill program has almost doubled the mineralized lithium zone by 400 metres along strike to the east of the previously drilled main Jackpot Zone. The gently dipping zone now extends a total of 900 metres along strike and 300 metres down dip, to a depth of 200 metres. The zone consists of multiple stacked spodumene rich pegmatite dikes. The results reported today are located to the east and north-east of the Main Jackpot Zone (see Figure 2).

Highlights of the assay results reported today include:

J.C. St-Amour, President and CEO of Imagine, commented, "The results announced today include the best intercepts drilled to date on the Jackpot property both in terms of thickness and grade. The Jackpot property is not only ideally located within a rapidly emerging lithium camp, but is very close to infrastructure, including roads, power generation and transmission facilities. Our drill program continues to expand the main Jackpot zone to the northeast, almost doubling the known strike length of the pegmatite swarm. The 2022 drill program was aimed at increasing the size of the historical resource both along strike and at depth, and today's results are a clear indication that the campaign will have achieved its objective. The results of the 2022 campaign will be combined with the extensive historical data and included in a first resource estimate in 2023. Furthermore, the deposit remains open along strike, which could provide for even more expansion as we proceed with further drilling in the near future."

Imagine is very interested in exploration targets elsewhere on the property, including areas to the north-east and north-west of Jackpot. Grab samples were taken from the north-west of the property along a 500 metres strike length. The samples returned values containing lithium grades of up to 2.72% Li2O. (See press release dated January 26, 2023.)

On the southwest area of the property where channel samples returned 10.3 metres grading 1.23% Li2O and 10.0 metres grading 1.02% Li2O more exploration drilling is required to define the proper geometry of the pegmatite dikes which are well mineralized at surface. The mineralized zone is yet to be determined with current drilling therefore Imagine will be revisiting the area this year.

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 rock samples were put in sturdy plastic bags, tagged, and sealed in the core shack under the supervision of professional geologists. Sample bags were then put in rice pouches and kept securely before being sent by road transport to the Actlabs laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Lithium was analyzed by Peroxide Fusion ICP-OES method (8-Li package), whereas tantalum was determined by 4-acid "near total" digestion using the ultratrace ICP-MS method.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 9, 2023) - IMAGINE LITHIUM INC. (TSXV: ILI) (OTCQB: ARXRF) (the "Company" or "Imagine") is pleased to announce positive preliminary results from metallurgical testing at it's Jackpot Lithium Project, for which the highlights are presented below:

Additional metallurgical tests will be conducted to confirm these results.

JC St-Amour, President of Imagine Lithium said, "We are very pleased with the initial metallurgical tests on the Jackpot spodumene-bearing granitic pegmatite dykes indicating a high recovery and elevated lithium concentrates can be produced from simple metallurgical processes. A 6% lithium concentrate is the industry standard and concentrate prices are quoted at a 6% Li2O grade. Low iron is also desirable as it increases the addressable market for our product (battery, glass and ceramics markets). Given that metallurgical analysis and results are an important input in the customer engagement process, we believe this is an important step in our consideration of multiple commercial opportunities for our lithium products in tandem with continued exploration program."

The Jackpot Lithium project is located approximately 40 km North of the town of Nipigon, Ontario and is near infrastructure including the Trans-Canada Highway, power, rail service, and ports (See Figure 1).

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 26, 2023) - IMAGINE LITHIUM INC. (TSXV: ILI) (OTCQB: ARXRF) (the "Company" or "Imagine") is pleased to announce that its 2022 prospecting program has identified a new drilling target located approximately 1.6 km to the northwest of the Jackpot Main Zone. Grab samples from this area have identified at least one mineralized spodumene-bearing granitic pegmatite over a strike length of approximately 500 m. Samples collected from the pegmatite have returned Li2O values up to 2.72% Li2O. A video discussing the new target area can be found here.

A total of 15 grab samples were taken from the area, where a spodumene bearing pegmatite was traced over 500 m. The samples returned values containing lithium grades ranging from 0.01% to 2.72% Li2O (see Figure 1). Samples from a 240 m section of the granitic dike along strike generated an average of 1.17 Li2O% (n=11). It is believed that the pegmatite could be as much as 40 m wide. The Company plans to complete follow-up prospecting and sampling work in the general vicinity of this pegmatite as well as an exploration drilling campaign targeting the pegmatite specifically.

J.C. St-Amour, President of Imagine commented, "This newly discovered area demonstrates the prospectivity of our very large land package. The team is very excited to test this newly identified zone. There is some ground cover in this area, so there is excellent potential for expansion of this dike along strike as well as potential for additional dikes in this area. The grab sample grades suggest it is a well mineralized dike that we intend to drill test in 2023."

The 2022 drilling campaign at Jackpot ended in early December, having drilled over 10,000 m. We expect that final results will be received in the coming weeks and will be released once available.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - November 29, 2022) - IMAGINE LITHIUM INC. (TSXV: ILI) (OTCQB: ARXRF) (the "Company" or "Imagine") is pleased to announce assay results from channel samples collected as part of its prospecting program on the Jackpot lithium property located in the Georgia Lake Area about 140 km NNE of Thunder Bay, Ontario. The channel samples were collected in an area approximately 1 km southwest of the Jackpot Main Zone where analyzed grab samples provided significant Li2O concentrations (see September 7, 2022 Press release).

Highlights of the channel results reported today include:

10.3 m @ 1.23% Li2O, including 4.0 m @ 2.88% Li2O; and

10.00 m @ 1.02% Li2O, including 6.00 m @ 1.56% Li2O.

J.C. St-Amour, President of Imagine commented, "I am very pleased with the channel samples as they were taken from the southwest region of the property that delivered previously reported mineralized lithium grab samples, meaning this section of the property seems well mineralized at surface. Not only does this area justify further exploration work, but our prospecting program has identified several spodumene bearing pegmatite dikes within 2 km of the Jackpot Main Zone that provide additional targets for future exploration and drill programs. We are confident that in addition to expanding the Jackpot deposit through our current drill program, we will have potential to find additional deposits on the broader Jackpot property."

All five channels taken from Site 1, where a spodumene-bearing pegmatite was traced over 80 m, returned intervals containing lithium grades ranging from 0.64% to 2.88% Li2O (see Figure 1 and Table 1). Five additional sites submitted to channel sampling also returned intervals containing 0.75% to 2.15% Li2O.

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 rock samples were put in sturdy plastic bags, tagged, and sealed in the core shack under the supervision of professional geologists. Sample bags were then put in rice pouches and kept securely before being sent by road transport to the Actlabs laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Lithium was analyzed by Peroxide Fusion ICP-OES method (8-Li package).

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 19, 2022) - IMAGINE LITHIUM INC. (TSXV: ILI) (OTCQB: ARXRF) (the "Company" or "Imagine") is pleased to announce assay results from its ongoing drill program at the Jackpot lithium project. The drill program is designed to test targets along strike both to the east and west of the Jackpot lithium project located in the Georgia Lake Area about 140 km NNE of Thunder Bay, Ontario (see Figure 1). All of today's reported results are located within the eastern extension of the Jackpot property and are outside the known historically drilled Jackpot Main Zone. The current drill program has expanded the mineralized lithium zone at least 400 metres to the east of the previously drilled area (see Figure 2).

Highlights of the assay results reported today include:

Hole JP-2022-21C: 21.0 m @ 1.16% Li2O, including 8.0 m @ 1.40% Li2O;

Hole JP-2022-21B: 3.00 m @ 0.92 Li2O % and 11.00 m @ 0.87 Li2O %

J.C. St-Amour, President of Imagine, commented, "Today we announced one of the best intercepts to date on the Jackpot property both in terms of width and grade. I am very pleased that these results are to the east of our primary historical area of drilling on the property and they demonstrate the property's expansion potential. Also, it is important to note that all our results so far this year have been very shallow, from surface to ~100 metres, meaning the dikes are at or near surface. The drill program is ongoing and aimed at increasing the size of the historical resource both along strike but also to the north by testing additional parallel pegmatite targets."

The current drill program is designed to test possible extensions of the Jackpot deposit along a known lithium bearing trend. To date 6,755 metres have been drilled with results returned from approximately 3,463 metres. The Company will release drilling and sampling results as they become available.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 7, 2022) - IMAGINE LITHIUM INC. (TSXV: ILI) (OTCQB: ARXRF) (the "Company" or "Imagine") is pleased to announce assay results from its ongoing prospecting program on the Jackpot lithium property located in the Georgia Lake Area about 140 km NNE of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Based on the summer prospecting program, Imagine Lithium has identified a 3 km trend of sub-parallel spodumene-bearing pegmatite dikes that extends to the east and west of the Jackpot main drilling area. See Figure 1 which outlines the approximately 18,800-hectare Jackpot Lithium property and trend. Today's assay results from 57 granitic pegmatite samples collected from the south-west of Jackpot are displayed in Figure 2 and Table 1 and contain multiple high grade Li2O grab samples. Grab samples were also taken from dikes in the north-eastern portion of this 3 km trend and assay results are pending. Figure 3 indicates the location of spodumene-bearing pegmatites that have been identified elsewhere on the property.

J.C. St-Amour, President of Imagine commented, "Our summer prospecting program has been a complete success with multiple new lithium-bearing dikes being identified on just a small portion of this vast property. Our geologist did not venture far from our main Jackpot zone to identify and sample new lithium-bearing dikes. Given our prospecting success in the immediate vicinity of our drilling area I am very encouraged about the potential for this property to host many additional dikes. In the meantime, this 3 km trend will be the focus of our next fall/winter drill program."

St-Amour continued, "One of the best features of this project is its location and proximity to infrastructure, being a short drive from the major port of Thunder Bay. Below is a link to a short video of the property which shows several outcrop dikes as well as the project's proximity to infrastructure, which is key to the economics of any mining operation in the future."

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - December 16, 2021) - Infinite Ore Corp. (TSXV: ILI) (OTCQB: ARXRF) (the "Company" or "Infinite") is pleased to announce that recent channel sampling has identified at least three zones of interest containing spodumene-bearing granitic pegmatites with lithium values matching those of the historical resource area and that demonstrate the expansion potential of the Jackpot lithium project.

Zone 1 is an extension of a previously drilled outcrop and returned channel results of 1.27% Li2O over 4.5 m, 1.32 over 4.0 m, 1.69 Li2O over 6.5 m, respectively.

Zone 2 is approximately 200 m ENE along strike of the pegmatite dykes drilled in 2018 and yield concentrations 1.37 Li2O % over 3.0 m and 0.76 % Li2O over 8.5 m. This zone indicates the potential for the Jackpot dykes to extend to a length of at least 900 m.

Zone 3, approximately 280 m to the north of the previous zone, returned 1.3 % Li2O over 12 m. Infinite is planning an extensive drill program for 2022 expecting to begin this winter. The main objective is to expand the historical resources by drilling beyond the 2018 drill campaign area as well as test the new zones.

In 2022, the Company will also test the zones of interest located on the newly acquired claims approximately 1.1-1.3 km to the WSW of the known Jackpot dykes with a goal of potentially linking these to the resource area. The newly acquired claims expose several outcrops of spodumene-bearing granitic pegmatite dykes that produced Li2O values ranging from 2.29 to 7.08 % (see the company's December 13th, 2021 press release).
