Nova CEO, Mr. Christopher Gerteisen commented: "We are very pleased by Snow Lake's progress and performance, and it appears that the market is recognising the strides that they have made in advancing the Thompson Brothers Lithium Project. Nova is currently laser focused on continuing its aggressive drilling campaign and associated resource studies to fast track its Estelle Gold Project. This offering provided us with the opportunity to take a portion of our Snow Lake investment off the table and to fund our upcoming financial commitments with zero dilution to Nova shareholders. Snow Lake has been a remarkable investment for us, returning approximately 2,500% in just under 5 years.

Nova sees the next 12 months as being an exciting and pivotal time for Snow Lake, as it delivers on its key value creating milestones of advancing and expanding its resource and completing its economic studies. In support of this, Nova is pleased to extend the Underwriter Lock-Up on its remaining 37% holding out to 21 March 2023."

Snow Lake, located at the tip of the NAFTA "superhighway" with easy access to North American battery and electric vehicle manufacturing sites, is committed to developing and operating a fully renewable and sustainable lithium mine that can deliver a completely traceable, carbon neutral and zero harm product to the electric vehicle and battery market in North America.
