Noram Receives Results For CVZ-71: High-grade Intercept of 280.0 ft (85.3 m) Averaging 1050 ppm & High of 1560 ppm
Vancouver, British Columbia – May 26, 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-71 (PH-10) and release of the final assay results. The Company completed core hole CVZ-71 at a depth of 453.5 feet (138.2 m). Sampling for assay began at 30 ft (9.1 m) and continued to the bottom of the hole. An interval thickness of 280 ft (85.3 m) was intersected from 140 ft (42.7 m) to 420 ft (128.0 m). The hole ended in mineralization and the weighted average lithium values present were as follows:
|Depth of Interval Intersection||Total thickness||Weighted Average Lithium (ppm)|
|140 ft to 420 ft (42.7 m to 128.0 m)||280.0 ft (85.3 m)||1050.0 ppm|
FIGURE 1 – Example of core from CVZ-71, the first hole drilled using PQ core. PQ-sized core has a larger diameter to provide more material for ongoing metallurgical testing. This particular section shows the transition from olive claystones to the blue reduced claystones. As a general rule, demonstrated by previous programs, the blue claystones tend to have higher lithium values.
Figure 2. Comparative stratigraphy and assay results for drill hole CVZ-71 as compared to previously drilled holes CVZ-51 and CVZ-70. CVZ-51 and CVZ-70 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.
“As Noram moves toward completion of the Zeus property’s PFS, now on schedule for completion in October 2022, the assay results from CVZ-71 provide another long, high-grade intercept to the list of drillholes that is expected to upgrade a major portion of the deposit from an inferred resource to the indicated resource category” comments Brad Peek, VP of Exploration and geologist on all six phases of Noram’s Clayton Valley exploration drilling.

Noram Lithium Corp. (TSXV: NRM | OTCQB: NRVTF | Frankfurt: N7R) is a well-financed Canadian based advanced Lithium development stage company with less than 90 million shares issued and a fully funded treasury. Noram is aggressively advancing its Zeus Lithium Project in Nevada from the development-stage level through the completion of a Pre-Feasibility Study in 2022.
The Company’s flagship asset is the Zeus Lithium Project (“Zeus”), located in Clayton Valley, Nevada. The Zeus Project contains a current 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.
