Phase 4 drilling continues to expand the extent and continuity of the
pegmatite system on Core, thus giving confidence in a significant
Mineral Resource estimate update in June. In 2018, the Company announced
a Mineral Resource estimate at Core of 16.2Mt @ 1.12% Li2O
which supported a 13-year project life as reported in the Company’s
Scoping Study announced in September 2018. In April 2019 the Company
announced an increased Mineral Resource estimate of 19.0Mt @ 1.15% Li2O
inclusive of a Mineral Resource estimate at the Company’s Central
property.

Keith D. Phillips, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We
are very pleased with these interim results from Phase 4 drilling, which
continue to highlight high-grade mineralization near-surface.
The
shallow nature of the ore body, combined with pure spodumene mineralogy,
local by-product markets and exceptional infrastructure, are important
factors which should position the Piedmont Lithium Project in the first
quartile of the cost curve. We look forward to reporting a significant
increase to our property-wide resource in June, and to reflecting that
enlarged resource in an updated scoping study in July.
