·      5 priority lithium target zones have been identified with Li2O assay results showing maximum values up to 250 ppm Li2O.

·      Lithium pathfinders of interest included maximum values of:

o  3.54ppm Be, 46.2ppm Cs, 5.17% K,159.00ppm La, 427ppm Rb & 11.9ppm Ta

Evergreen Head of Exploration, Jason Ward commented: “This is an excellent start for Evergreen Lithium. These geochemical results from Evergreen’s maiden soil auger program at the Kenny Project in WA show strong lithium values over a widespread area and the coincident anomalies in pathfinder elements have identified several compelling targets for LCT pegmatites. We look forward to following these up with further work including a drilling program.”

Evergreen Chairman, Simon Lill commented: “After a successful IPO listing based primarily on the Company’s flagship Bynoe Project, it is extremely pleasing to remind the market that we have other quality projects. These initial results should elevate Kenny’s status in shareholder perceptions.”
