Cruz Battery Metals Rushes Assays After Encountering the Targeted Potential Lithium-Bearing Claystone in Every Drill Hole of the Phase II Drill Program on the Solar Lithium Project in Nevada

C.CRUZ

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 6, 2022) - Cruz Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: CRUZ) (OTC Pink: BKTPF) (FSE: A3CWU7) ("Cruz" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that every drill hole of the phase II drill program on the 100-percent owned, 8,135 total contiguous acre 'Solar Lithium Project' in Nevada, has encountered the targeted potential lithium-bearing claystone. The samples have been sent for assaying on a rush basis to ALS labs in Reno. The 'Solar Lithium Project' directly borders American Lithium Corp.'s TLC project. On May 21, 2020, American Lithium Corp. announced a maiden resource estimate, prepared by Stantec Consulting Ltd., for the TLC lithium claystone property containing 5.37 million tonnes lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) measured & indicated with another 1.76 million tonnes LCE inferred.

The lithium-bearing claystone formation was encountered in all the holes drilled during Cruz's first phase of drilling on the 'Solar Lithium Project', including values as high as 1,300 ppm/Li (announced on January 17, 2022). Cruz Management cautions that past results or discoveries on properties in proximity to Cruz may not necessarily be indicative of the presence of mineralization on the Company's properties.

Jim Nelson, President of Cruz Battery Metals, stated, "We are encouraged that every hole of the phase II drill program has encountered the targeted potential lithium-bearing claystone. Cruz has a large footprint and a similar size property to our neighbor, American Lithium, who has a current market capitalization of approximately $650 million. Lithium prices remain strong as the demand for electric vehicle (EV) batteries continues to grow at a rapid pace. Cruz's goal is to locate and provide a new, domestically sourced, battery grade lithium deposit, and we look forward to the upcoming results from the phase II drill program."
