(businesspress24) - E3 Metals Corp. to Acquire Prospective New Land Position Strategic to Developing Mineral Resources in the Exshaw Project Area and Fully Subscribes Non-Brokered Private Placement

Highlights

- E3 Metals Corp. has entered into a binding term sheet to acquire three Metallic and Industrial Minerals (MIM) permits located in the Exshaw Project Area from Fathom Minerals Ltd., a private mineral exploration company

- The three MIM permits are strategically located in the Exshaw Project Area and increases E3 Metals Leduc Reservoir land holdings to over 500,000ha

- E3 Metals is currently conducting the initial sampling for lithium concentrations from the Leduc Reservoir in this area

- Historic sampling results across this new area range from 75mg/L to 83mg/L lithium, and as high as 135mg/L lithium, directly adjacent and within the same reservoir.

- E3 Metals fully subscribes private placement announced July 18, 2017 - will proceed to seek final TSXV acceptance

Vancouver, BC - August 15, 2017 - E3 METALS CORP. (TSX-V: ETMC, FSE: OU7A) (the Company or E3 Metals) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding term-sheet (the Term Sheet) to acquire three additional Metallic and Industrial Minerals (MIM) Permits (the Permits) from Fathom Minerals Ltd. (Fathom), a private exploration company, in the Exshaw Project area. Pursuant to the terms of the Term Sheet, E3 Metals will acquire (i) a 100% interest in the Permits and (ii) all technical data and reports related to the Permits in Fathoms possession, in consideration of:

1. CAD$35,000; and

2. 350,000 common shares of the Company on closing, 150,000 of which will be subject to a voluntary one-year escrow restriction.

E3 Metals Corp. existing Metallic and Industrial Minerals Permits (blue) are adjacent to the new acquisition Permits from Fathom Minerals Ltd. (orange). Eighteen wells in the new Permit areas are actively producing, and are potentially available for sampling (green diamonds). Historic sampling locations with tested lithium concentrations are displayed and graduated for Li concentration in mg/L.



Approximately 18 active wells are producing hydrocarbons and petro-brine within this new Permit area that have not been tested historically. The new Permits are adjacent to E3 Metals existing MIM permits and represent a strategic acquisition for the Company that covers over 26,000 ha of prospective Leduc Reservoir. The proximity to E3 Metals existing land holdings and the available well infrastructure for sampling will allow the Company to increase the areal extent of land that could be potentially included within a mineral resource. E3 Metals total land position is now over 500,000 ha, all of which covers the prospective Leduc Reservoir.

Historic sampling conducted across the permit area has delineated lithium concentrations ranging from 75mg/L to 83mg/L. Samples collected immediately adjacent to the new Permits have lithium concentrations of up to 135mg/L. E3 Metals plans to conduct additional sampling across the new Permit area, as part of the larger program, to confirm historical lithium concentration results.

The Leduc Reservoir is well-known for the prolific production of oil and gas, due to the unique properties of this reservoir. Importantly, the Leduc Reservoir allows for both large volumes of fluid to be trapped in the rock, and the ability to move large volumes of fluid easily to surface. Evaluation of the Leduc Reservoir has shown that a single vertical well has the ability to produce as much as 20,500m3/day of water when completed to the bottom of the reservoir. The combination of anomalous lithium concentrations and the potential high production rates of petro-brines, suggests the Leduc Reservoir has the potential to be a large-scale producer of lithium.

Historical sampling results outlined within this announcement and additional technical information regarding the Alberta Lithium Project are available in E3 Metals Technical Report dated May 18, 2017 Geological Introduction to E3 Metals Corp. Clearwater and Exshaw Lithium-Brine properties In South Central Alberta, authored by Apex Geoscience Ltd. The Technical Report has been posted and is available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and on our website (www.e3metalscorp.com/documents).

Further to the Companys news release of July 18, 2017 announcing a non-brokered private placement for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $902,000 (the Offering), the Company is pleased to announce that it has fully subscribed the Offering, and will proceed to seek final TSX Venture Exchange acceptance of the Offering shortly. The Company is considering accepting oversubscriptions, and will provide further details on closing.

About Lithium

The main driver behind the increase in demand for lithium, and the excitement for lithium as a commodity, is the growth of high efficiency lithium-ion battery production globally. Although Tesla is at the forefront of the lithium revolution in recent years, the lithium-ion battery has solidified itself as the battery of choice for automakers and mobile technology such as laptops and mobile phones. Continuously, additional car manufacturers announce movement of their production into electric cars. Announcements by Volkswagen, as well as Volvo (which announced that its entire production by 2019 will contain electric motors), are evidence of the move to electric vehicles. These electric cars currently rely on lithium-ion batteries to provide the high efficiency required to generate the range buyers expect.

E3 Metals believes rapid growth for lithium as a bulk commodity will be further enhanced by the expanding large-scale battery market, such as the Los Angeles battery backup facility Tesla has recently completed. Adelaide, South Australia, has announced its intent to build a backup battery facility 5x the size of the Los Angeles facility. This continual movement to storing power using lithium-ion batteries reinforces E3 Metals belief that the demand for lithium as a commodity is only getting started.
