Rock Tech to Commence Exploration Program at Georgia Lake
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, October 28, 2010 –
Rock Tech Lithium Inc. (TSX‐Venture: RCK; Frankfurt: RJIA) (the “Company” or “Rock Tech”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a 4,000 meter drill contract with Cobra Drilling Limited, and has engaged Caracle Creek International Consulting Inc. to carry out 3D modeling, NI 43‐101 resource estimation and other geological work related to Georgia Lake lithium and rare metals project in the Thunder Bay mining district of northwestern Ontario.
The Company’s 2010‐2011 exploration program is based on the compilation of available historical
exploration and geological data, which includes 33,000 meters of historical drilling carried out by past
operators. The primary objective of the exploration program is to confirm and expand the historical
resource estimations on each claim block.
Following are the highlights of the Company’s exploration plan:
• Development of a 3-D model of the historic data, allowing for Company geologists to have a
greater understanding of the project geology, resulting in defining precise drill targets;
• Execution of a total of 11,500 meters NQ size diamond core drilling in approximately 45 drill
• Drilling of a select number of deeper holes to determine the continuity of dykes at 500 meters
below ground surface, which if successful, will aid in expanding the historical resource.
• Obtain representative bulk samples from the Nama Creek main pegmatite dykes for
metallurgical testing of spodumene.
Led by Afzaal Pirzada, Vice‐President of Exploration, initial field work to prepare for the forthcoming drill
program has commenced. The Company’s geological team is currently marking proposed drill holes,
locating sites for bulk sampling and working towards obtaining permits for drill access roads. The
Company anticipates the drilling to commence the first week of December, 2010.
Eunho Lee, Company President and CEO, commented, “We are very pleased to announce the initiation
of our 2010-2011 exploration program. The engagement of Caracle Creek International Consulting Inc.
and Cobra Drilling Limited provides the Company and its shareholders with the opportunity of advancing
our Georgia Lake project in an effective manner. Our long term vision for the Georgia Lake project
continues to be developing it to an economic mine operation, and today’s announcement marks a
significant first step in moving towards achieving that goal.”

About Georgia Lake Lithium Project
Rock Tech’s 100% owned Georgia Lake Lithium Project is comprised of four claim blocks covering 11,481
hectares. Located 145 kilometres northeast of the city of Thunder Bay in northwest Ontario, the
property is accessible by Provincial Highway 11. It covers 25 of approximately 50 known lithium bearing
occurrences within the Georgia Lake area. The property has historical resource estimate of 9.78 million
tons at 1.18% lithium oxide (note: historical resource estimate is not NI43‐101 compliant) based on over
200 drill holes with a total of 33,000 meters diamond drilling carried out in the late 1950s. Underground
development carried out during that period on the Nama Creek claim block included a vertical fourcompartment
shaft sunk to a depth of 153.3 meters (503 feet). Two mill tests conducted by previous
operators on spodumene samples from Aumacho Block indicated that heavy media separation would
yield 6.27% and 5.93% lithium with a recovery of about 90%. Rock Tech’s immediate plan is to bring the
historical resource to current NI43-101 standards, and carry out development and metallurgical work to
further expand on the historical work.
Technical information of this news release has been reviewed by Afzaal Pirzada, P.Geo., Vice President,
Exploration of the Company and a Qualified Person as defined in NI43-101.
