Message: Rock Tech Intersects 4.24% Graphite over 13.12 metres at Lochaber

Jan 07, 2013 -- Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, January 7, 2013 - Rock Tech Lithium Inc. CA:RCK +10.00% (frankfurt:RJIA) (the "Company" or "Rock Tech") announces additional assay results from its Lochaber graphite property in Quebec. The assay results correspond to the four remaining drill holes that were part of the drill program announced by the Company on October 1, 2012.

Two of the drill holes successfully tested the extension of graphite mineralization to the north along electromagnetic conductor 'C'. This conductor, now with a strike length exceeding one-half of a kilometer, remains open to the north and south and at depth. Of the additional two drill holes, one tested electromagnetic conductor 'E' while the other, drilled on electromagnetic conductor 'A', was primarily for metallurgical testing and was adjacent to drill hole PB-12-02. The electromagnetic conductors were identified on the Plumbago area of the property during geophysical surveys in September, 2012 (click here to view a map).

Highlights of these assay results include:

-Drill hole PB-12-10 intersected 47.82 metres of graphitic carbon ("Cg") at various depths with grades ranging from 1.07% Cg to 4.24% Cg, including 13.12 metres at 4.24% Cg, 11 metres at 2.62% Cg, and 14 metres at 3.61% Cg;

-Drill Hole PB-12-11 intersected 29.96 metres of Cg at various depths with grades ranging from 1.18% Cg to 9.03% Cg, including 3.77 metres at 9.03% Cg, 4 metres at 3.94% Cg, 5.49 metres at 2.13% Cg and 5.76 metres at 2.52% Cg;

-Drill Hole PB-12-12 intersected 8.43 metres of Cg at various depths with grades ranging from 1.03% Cg to 2.42% Cg; and

-Drill Hole PB-12-13 intersected 82.24 metres of Cg at various depths with grades ranging from 1.08% Cg to 8.25% Cg, including 10.13 metres at 3.66% Cg, 2.96 metres at 3.91% Cg, 7.31 metres at 4.16% Cg, 1.62 metres at 8.25% Cg, 2.93 metres at 7.61% Cg, 5.62 metres at 3.4% Cg and 10.93 metres at 5.92% Cg.

To date, the Company's geophysical surveys and drill programs have focused exclusively on the Plumbago area of the property which includes only four of the thirty-two claims subject to the property option agreement. Surface samples taken from the Kelly, McLaren and Burke areas of the property returned graphite results up to 22% (see September 13, 2012 news release).

"The assay results from the first round of drilling have exceeded our expectations and illustrate the resource potential of the property. On their own, the results from the Plumbago area are highly encouraging. Electromagnetic conductor 'A' has been traced for 300 metres along strike while electromagnetic conductor 'C' has been traced for over one-half of a kilometre along strike. Both conductors remain open along strike and at depth. Our optimism is bolstered by the fact that the Plumbago area represents less than 13% of the claims under option while surface samples from other areas of the property show the potential for further high-grade graphite mineralization. Drilling continues on the Plumbago area and will further test the extensions of the previously identified electromagnetic conductors," said Afzaal Pirzada, Rock Tech's Vice President of Exploration and interim CEO.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

All core samples are logged and split by wet diamond saw with half sent to the lab for analysis and half stored securely on site. The core sample lengths typically average 1 metre but vary depending on geological boundaries. Additional QA/QC procedures include inserting blanks into the core sample stream at industry standard intervals with duplicate core samples taken at intervals of twenty. Core samples are prepped and analyzed by Acme Metallurgical Limited ("AcmeMet") in Vancouver, British Columbia. During analysis, the core samples are dried, pulverized, leached and roasted at 450? Celsius and 1200? Celsius with measured weights taken between double ignitions. AcmeMet also conducts duplicate and internal standard samples at intervals of ten as part of their QA/QC program.
