VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / January 27, 2021 / Infinite Ore Corp. (the "Company") (TSXV:ILI)(OTCQB:ARXRF) is pleased to announce the acquisition of four additional lithium claims in Ontario having a historic resource of 750,000 tons yielding 1.38% Li2O*. This is in addition to the historical resource of 2 million tons at 1.09% Li2O* currently present on the Jackpot property. The new claims are contiguous to, and located within, the Company's Jackpot Property (see Figure 1).

Drilling at the time traced the Newkirk dike for 609 meters with an average thickness of 5 m.

J.C. St-Amour, President of Infinite Ore commented, "This property acquisition adds to our existing historical resources of 2,000,000 tons grading 1.09% Li2O*. We are pleased to be able to provide our shareholders an exposure to lithium, gold and base metals exploration through our Jackpot and Eastern Vision properties."
The Company's 100% owned Jackpot Lithium project is located in close proximity to the Georgia Lake lithium deposit, for which Rock Tech Lithium Inc. recently announced its intent to develop a lithium sulphate production facility located in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
Infinite Ore acquired the claims through payments to an arms-length party of $10,000 cash and 300,000 common shares. The vendor retains a royalty of 1.0% on revenue generated from non-smelter elements from the Jackpot Claims and a 1.0% NSR. This may be purchased at any time for $500,000.00.
