Beyond Lithium Announces up to 5.11% Li2O at Its Last Resort Pegmatite and up to 3.48% Li2O at Its Bounty Gold Pegmatite from Spodumene Pegmatites Grab Samples at Victory Project

Grab samples from the spodumene-bearing pegmatite in the western side of the exploration trend (the Last Resort Pegmatite) assayed up to 5.11% Li2O and all eleven announced sample results are above 1% Li2O.Grab samples from the spodumene-bearing pegmatite in the eastern side of the exploration trend (the Bounty Gold Pegmatite), assayed up to 3.48% Li2O. The two spodumene-bearing pegmatites are about 30-40 meters in width and have been traced over 150 to 300 meters along strike on surface.The two spodumene-bearing pegmatites are five kilometers apart and both pegmatites lie within a six kilometers long exploration corridor that is structurally controlled by the subparallel English-River Subprovince and Wabigoon Subprovince boundary. Assays for an additional 32 grab samples and 28 channel samples from the Victory Project are pending. Drilling and trenching exploration permit application for the Victory Project expected to be submitted to the Ministry of Mines of Ontario before the end of December. Appointment of Director of Communications.

Beyond Lithium Inc. (CSE: BY) (OTCQB: BYDMF) (the ‘Company’ or ‘Beyond Lithium’) is pleased to announce the results of fourteen grab samples from its two newly discovered spodumene-bearing pegmatites at the Victory Project (see news release dated October 10, 2023). The spodumene-bearing pegmatite located in the western side of the Project, the Last Resort Pegmatite, assayed up to 5.11% Li2O, and all 11 announced sample results are above 1% Li2O.

The other spodumene-bearing pegmatite located in the eastern side of the Project, the Bounty Gold Pegmatite, assayed up to 3.48% Li2O. These two spodumene-bearing pegmatites are five kilometers apart and lie within a six kilometres long exploration corridor that is controlled by the regional English-River Subprovince and Wabigoon Subprovince boundary and local metasediment-metavolcanics contacts (Figure 1).

Allan Frame, President and CEO of Beyond Lithium, commented, ‘We are building a district-scale hub and spoke exploration portfolio around the two spodumene projects, the Victory and the Ear Falls, which also includes eight other prospective projects located in the Mavis Lake area. With the excellent infrastructure connecting these projects, we expect our all-in exploration cost for advancing the two spodumene projects, Victory and Ear Falls, and exploring the other eight projects will be very cost-effective as we can centralize and share resources between the different field crews in the same district. From a longer-term strategic perspective, we see great synergies from advancing both the Victory and the Ear Falls Projects concurrently due to their proximity of each other. We have already begun the process of preparing the drilling and trenching permit application for Victory as we target to submit the application to the Ministry of Mines of Ontario before the end of December.’

Bounty Gold Pegmatite

The Bounty Gold Pegmatite averages 40 to 50 meters in width and up to 60 meters at the wider part of the pegmatite and has been traced over for 350 meters on surface striking east-west orientation. The Bounty Gold Pegmatite is composed of coarse-grained tourmaline, garnet, muscovite, beryl, cleavelandite, and spodumene. Local zoned quartz core with spodumene assayed up to 3.48% Li2O is also observed at the Bounty Gold Pegmatite similar to the Last Resort Pegmatite (Figure 2).

Last Resort Pegmatite

The Last Resort Pegmatite is located in the western side of the Victory Project and is about 30-35 meters in width and over 150m exposed on surface. The Last Resort Pegmatite is characterized by scatter of subtle and finer grained white to yellowish spodumene up to 5 to 15% mineralization to local quartz cores with coarser spodumene crystals up to 25 to 50% mineralization assayed up to 5.11% Li2O. The Last Resort Pegmatite generally strikes east-northeast and dips nearly subvertical based on the contract measurement with the metavolcanic host rock. From the initial mapping program of the Last Resort Pegmatite, spodumene mineralization vectors stronger towards the eastern end and is zoned with quartz cores that coincide with a >3.00% Li2O zonation (Figure 3).

Lawrence Tsang, VP Exploration of Beyond Lithium, remarked, ‘We are very excited of getting 12 out of the 14 samples grading over 1.00% Li2O from the two spodumene-bearing pegmatites at the Victory Project (Table 1). This first batch of assays demonstrated the consistent >1.00% Li2O grade from both spodumene-bearing pegmatites which establishes a background value of what we may intercept from further exploration in higher spodumene mineralized zones at Victory. The Last Resort and the Bounty Gold Pegmatites are five kilometers apart, yet both pegmatites averaged 17 K/Rb ratio The mineral cleavelandite was identified at the Bounty Gold Pegmatite showing the entire six kilometers long exploration corridor is highly fractionated for lithium exploration. Also, the initial mapping was able to outline the size of the Last Resort and the Bounty Gold Pegmatites averaging 30-40m in width demonstrated the size potential of the system at Victory. Thus far, results of 11 grab samples from the Last Resort Pegmatite averaged 3.06% Li2O, 17 K/Rb, and 79.6ppm Cs; assays of three grab samples from the Bounty Gold Pegmatite averaged 1.49% Li2O, 17 K/Rb, and 191.7ppm Cs. Lastly, we will continue to explore along the 6 kilometers long exploration corridor for additional spodumene mineralization and begin prospecting in the Victory West area.’

Drilling and Further Assay Results
Beyond Lithium has begun the process of preparing the drilling and trenching exploration permit application for the Victory Project and plans to submit the application to the Ministry of Mines of Ontario before the end of December. An additional 32 grab samples and 28 channel samples from the Victory Project are still pending from the lab which will further delineate an overall understanding of the grade distribution for the pegmatites at Victory.

Alain Lambert, Co-Founder and Capital Markets Advisor of Beyond Lithium added, ‘To ensure a steady news flow in the coming weeks and well into 2024, besides the 32 grab samples and the 28 channel samples from Victory (Figure 4), we are also anticipating the results of 98 channel samples and over 240 drilling samples from Ear Falls as well as an additional of over 110 grab samples from other projects including Wisa Lake and Case Lake.’

He added: ‘We are particularly looking forward to the results from our Wisa Lake Project as our neighbor company, Libra Lithium, just announced the discovery of spodumene mineralization up to 2.86% Li2O at their Flanders South Project7 (see Libra Lithium news release dated November 28, 2023). Based on a preliminary review of Libra’s Homer’s spodumene-bearing pegmatite, its north-south orientation would project into our Wisa Lake Project where we located a multiple of beryl-bearing pegmatites from our Phase 1 program.’

Regional Geology
The Victory Project is situated along the subprovince boundary of the Winnipeg River and Wabigoon subprovinces in the Medicine Lake area. This area was originally discovered in 1949 by E. Sobiski as a beryl-beryllium prospect followed by the delineation of the Medicine Lake Pluton by Pryslak in 1976 (Breaks 2003). The Medicine Lake Pluton is about 0.5 by 1.5 kilometer in size as a fertile pluton based on the highly fractionated potassium feldspar samples analysed by Breaks and Tindle in 1997 (Breaks 2003). Beyond Lithium discovered two new spodumene-bearing pegmatites at the Victory Project in early October 2023. These two spodumene-bearing pegmatites are five kilometer apart and lie within a six kilometer long exploration corridor that is controlled by the regional English-River Subprovince and Wabigoon Subprovince boundary and local metasediment-metavolcanics contacts (Figure 1).

Appointment of Director of Communications
Beyond Lithium is also pleased to announce the appointment of Etienne Moshevich as Director of Communications. Mr. Moshevich is a principal of Transcend Capital Inc., a Vancouver-based full-service investor relations company, known for its successful market awareness campaigns that help micro, small and mid-cap public companies gain valued industry exposure through its extensive network of retail and institutional clients.

Allan Frame, President and CEO of Beyond Lithium commented: ‘I have had the pleasure of working with Etienne in the past and I am delighted he has agreed to join the Beyond Lithium team. With two significant spodumene discoveries under our belt, we will soon be focusing on drilling at our Victory and Ear Falls project. I feel it is the right time to tell our story to a broader audience and having Etienne on board will help us achieve that.’

‘I am honoured to be joining the Beyond Lithium team and am excited about the opportunities ahead,’ says Etienne Moshevich. ‘Given its team of experienced and successful managers, geologists and capital markets professionals with proven track records of success, I am confident that Beyond Lithium will be able to deliver significant value for its investors over time. I believe the market isn’t giving Beyond Lithium the proper value it deserves, and I will be working hard alongside its management team to hopefully unlock that value and drive significant growth for everyone at stake over the coming quarters.’

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

All collected rock samples were put in sturdy plastic bags, tagged, and sealed at site. Sample bags were then put in rice bags and kept securely before being sent by road transport or delivered by the crew supervisor to SGS’s preparation facility in Red Lake or Sudbury, Ontario, for sample preparation. Pulps are analyzed at the SGS facility in Burnaby, BC. All samples are analyzed with Four-Acid Digestion/Combined ICP-AES/MS package (49 elements). Samples with lithium overlimit (>10,000 ppm Li) are analyzed with another Four-Acid Digestion with higher detection limit of up to 10% Li. Batches of samples with overlimit >10,000 ppm or 1% Li are analyzed with Sodium Peroxide Fusion for validation. The QA/QC protocol included the insertion and monitoring of appropriate reference materials, in this case high concentration and low concentration certified OREAS and CDN lithium standards to validate the accuracy and precision of the assay results.
