Table of Contents

    CALGARY, Alberta, October 30, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--E3 LITHIUM LTD. (TSXV: ETL) (FSE: OW3) (OTCQX: EEMMF), "E3 Lithium", "the Company," was advised by the OTC Markets Group Inc. ("OTC Markets") on October 25, 2023 of stock promotion activity that the Company was previously unaware of prior to the OTC Markets’ notification. E3 Lithium expressly disclaims, does not approve of, and has had no involvement in the purported stock promotion.

    At the request of the OTC Markets, the Company will provide clarity regarding samples of promotional material recently disseminated by MrPennyStocks.com ("MPS") related to E3 Lithium:

    1. At no time has E3 Lithium engaged MPS to conduct any services for the Company;

    2. E3 Lithium has not directly nor indirectly (i.e. through third-party service providers) compensated MPS in any way, nor been involved with any of the unsanctioned promotional materials. Any insinuation to the contrary in MPS’ material is false and misleading;

    3. E3 Lithium has delivered a "Cease and Desist" letter to MPS demanding that MPS immediately cease and desist publication of any material about the Company and that MPS remove any previously distributed material about E3 Lithium;

    4. E3 Lithium has comprehensive policies in place in respect of its investor and public relations activities and has previously disclosed all IR service providers retained by the Company. The Issuer had no knowledge of the promotional materials until notified by OTC Markets Issuer Compliance Team, which monitors and enforces OTC Markets Promotion Policies. As such, the Issuer had no editorial control over the content;

    5. Readers should not rely on any information contained in the material distributed by MPS, as none of it is reliable nor reviewed or approved by the Company.

    Additional information requested:

    The Company has observed no material change to its share price in relation to the above-mentioned promotional activities.

    To the Company’s knowledge after inquiry, no Director, officer, control person, controlling shareholder (defined as a shareholder owning more than 10% or more of the Issuer’s securities) employee, contractor or any third-party service provider has any relation to MPS, nor were the relevant parties involved, directly or indirectly, with the creation, distribution, or payment of the MPS promotional materials. Over the past 12 months, certain directors and officers sold shares totalling 224,500, as announced on October 4, 2023.

    Over the past 12 months, the Company has engaged with the following third-party service providers: Native Ads Inc. (June 14, 2023), Independent Trading Group (June 14, 2023), and Meadowbank Strategic Partners Inc. (September 12, 2023).

    The OTC Markets has further requested that E3 Lithium state whether it has issued any shares or convertible securities allowing conversion to equity securities at prices constituting a discount to current market rate at time of issuance. As previously announced, the Company issued shares related to two public offerings in the past 12 months. On June 8, 2023, the Company closed a "bought deal" public offering for gross proceeds of CAD$5,623,837 issuing 2,499,483 common shares of the Company at a price of CAD$2.25 per Offered Share, representing an 8% discount to the closing price on May 30, 2023.

    The Company encourages those interested in the Company to rely solely on information included in press releases issued and distributed by the Company through approved news wire or disclosure and news services, combined with its filings and disclosures made with SEDAR+.
