Desert Lion Energy Inc. announced the next stage in the Company's exploration program, following the completion of the Company's Phase 3 Mineral Resource delineation drilling program. This stage focuses on broader evaluation and exploration of Desert Lion's Exclusive Prospective License ("EPL") 5718 and applications to the north, with the following highlights achieved to date:

1. 29 structural targets have been generated from the geophysical survey and field validation efforts to date have resulted in the discovery of at least 30 individual sub parallel outcropping pegmatites all located within a well-defined structural corridor;

2. Completion of a geochemical discrimination study and development of a Fractionation Index to differentiate "barren" pegmatites from those having a Lithium – Cesium – Tantalum (LCT) type affinity;

3. Completion of a soil orientation survey, and confirming use of portable XRF (pXRF) to identify pathfinder or proxy elements for typical LCT type pegmatites; and

4. Completion of 50% field validation of structural targets, including identification of several LCT type pegmatites with rock chip samples yielding up to 2.2% lithium oxide (Li2O) and 332ppm tantalum oxide (Ta2O5).
