Enertopia Announces Completion of Drilling Program - Awaiting Assays

By: Newsfile

Kelowna, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 20, 2023) - Enertopia Corporation (OTCQB: ENRT) (CSE: ENRT) ("Enertopia'' or the "Company") a company focused on building shareholder value through a combination of our Nevada lithium claims, intellectual property, & pending patents in the green technology space, is very pleased to provide the following lithium project update.

We are happy to report that the final three additional drill holes have been completed, with all intersecting similar green claystone as reported on August 18, 2022. Lithium concentrations for all the drill hole data will be compared upon receipt of all assay numbers. A further 280 samples for the final remaining holes have been submitted to ALS for assay.

Summary from 2023 Drilling Program:

We were successful in outlining a broad area of green claystone ranging from 15 feet to 130 feet below surface. The thickness of the green claystone horizon varies from 50' to 195' in thickness. The thickest part of the deposit is still open to the west for over 800 feet, and to the Southwest for over 1,200 feet to the respective property boundaries. We estimate the green claystone deposit is still open to the east. All twelve holes ended in claystone and are open at depth. 12 holes were drilled for a total of 3,352 feet. 553 samples have been submitted for assay from the 2023 drilling program.
