Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - January 25, 2023) - Idaho Champion (CSE: ITKO) (OTCQB: GLDRF) (FSE: 1QB1) ("Idaho Champion" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company signed Binding Letters of Intent (the "LOIs" or "Acquisition") to acquire prospective properties in the pegmatite-rich Eeyou Istchee James Bay territory of Quebec. The prospective properties are adjacent to the previously acquired Blanche and Charles Projects and are comprised of 235 claims (See Figure 1).

Idaho Champion now controls 522 contiguous claims covering 283.13 km2 (See Figure 2) in the La Grande Greenstone Belt, rich in lithium pegmatite and including Patriot Battery Metals' ("Patriot") Corvette Project which recently intersected 156.9 m at 2.12% Li2O (176.4 m to 333.4 m), including 25.0 m at 5.04% Li2O or 5.0 m at 6.36% Li2O (CV22-083)*. All Idaho Champion properties have good infrastructure, including power and road access.

"We have received valuable feedback from the recently completed desktop study of Blanche and Charles, which prompted our pursuit to increase our land package in the area. The new properties include prospective exploration targets which will be worked into our exploration plans for 2023. Armed with a contiguous large position along the La Grande Greenstone belt, rich in lithium pegmatites, we believe we now have an immediate opportunity for a discovery of magnitude," commented Jonathan Buick, President and CEO.

Subject to closing, the Company will issue 445,000 common shares of the Company in connection with Finder's Fees.
