Newsfile Corp.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - March 13, 2019) - American Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: ABC) (the "Company" of "American Battery Metals") is pleased to announce the details for an exploration program for its Temple Mountain Vanadium Property in Emery County, Utah, USA. The 2019 program, which is anticipated to commence this month, is fully-funded by the recently-closed $1.5 million private placement.

The exploration program will be comprised of radon geophysical surveying, trenching and sampling, and reverse circulation (RC) drilling of 10 holes for 3,000 feet. The geophysical survey will utilize a proprietary radon cup methodology to identify vanadium and uranium bearing channels which has been successful in delineating mineralized zones in other projects throughout southeast Utah. The following drill program will look to test for extensions of known mineralization and historic mine workings, as well as testing targets identified through the radon survey. The exploration program will be conducted under the supervision of GeoXplor, the property optionor.

Michael Mulberry, President & CEO of American Battery Metals, commented "We're very happy with the exploration plan we have formulated in conjunction with the Bureau of Land Management and our team of experts. The exploration we will be undertaking over the next few months should provide us with a clear way forward in increasing the value of the Temple Mountain property and, to a large degree, de-risk our future exploration program. We will be updating shareholders on our progress in a timely and consistent basis."
