Atlas Lithium Expands Anitta Pegmatite Trend to 1.8 Kilometers

Belo Horizonte, Brazil–(Newsfile Corp. – May 22, 2023) – Atlas Lithium Corporation (NASDAQ: ATLX) ("Atlas Lithium" or the "Company") is pleased to report that on the basis of new exploration data, the Company's geological team has expanded the current size of the Company's Anitta pegmatite trend from 1.1 to 1.8 kilometers in length. Anitta is located within the Neves Project, a cluster of four lithium mineral rights that are part of the Company's 100%-owned Minas Gerais Lithium Project.

The Anitta trend is defined by a northeast to southwest striking zone of pegmatite intrusive bodies hosting localized concentrations of lithium mineralization. Recent geologic mapping and geochemical sampling by the Company's exploration team has extended the overall surface footprint for Anitta over an area measuring approximately 1.8 kilometers long by 400 meters wide. Anitta remains open to further extension laterally, along strike to the southwest, and vertically below surface.

For the purposes of geological exploration and mining planning, Anitta has been divided into two zones: South Anitta and North Anitta. The South Anitta zone covers an approximate 800-meter by 400-meter area that remains open to further extension both along strike to the northeast and southwest and extending below surface with depth. The South Anitta zone is an area in which several drill holes have encountered lithium mineralization at relatively shallow depths, an important factor for planning an open pit mine. Nine core rigs are currently actively conducting resource delineation and step-out exploration drilling to define the overall extent and continuity of lithium mineralization at South Anitta. Mineralization in this area begins at depths as shallow as 5 to 10 meters, extending to more than 150 meters vertically below surface. Of note, recent drill hole DHAB-104 yielded a large aggregate total of 99.1 meters of spodumene; the geochemical assays for DHAB-104 are pending. Photos of spodumene cores from DHAB-104 are attached below in this release.

The North Anitta zone is the initial location where the Anitta pegmatite trend delineation began by the Company's geological team. It comprises a series of northeasterly trending sub-parallel pegmatite dikes with lithium mineralization.

Atlas Lithium's geological team is comprised of 30 individuals, including 13 geologists and 17 field technicians and support personnel. Currently, the Company's exploration campaign has 10 active drills operating and has drilled approximately 20,000 meters; the current drilling campaign pace is between 6,500 to 7,000 meters drilled per month.

Atlas Lithium's exploration campaign is supervised by a Qualified Person for lithium as defined in Subpart 1300 of Regulation S-K ("Regulation S-K 1300") promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). As previously disclosed in our quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on May 15, 2023, Atlas Lithium has engaged SGS Canada Inc., and, in particular, their geologist Marc-Antoine Laporte, a Qualified Person for lithium, to produce a mineral resource estimate report for its Neves Project in accordance with Regulation S-K 1300, which report is expected to be completed during the third quarter of 2023.

The Company's drilling and sampling follow strict QA/QC protocols established under best practices. All lithium samples are analyzed at SGS-Geosol, the premier analytical laboratory used by reputable mining companies in Brazil. Normally geochemical results are obtained from SGS-Geosol three weeks after submission of the samples for analysis.
