Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, December 19, 2012 - Rock Tech Lithium Inc. (TSX-Venture: RCK; Frankfurt: RJIA; Pink Sheets: RCKTF) (the "Company" or "Rock Tech") announces the assay results for two additional drill holes from its Lochaber graphite property in Quebec. Both of these drill holes were part of the drill program announced by the Company on October 1, 2012.

These two drill holes further tested the graphite mineralization along electromagnetic conductor 'C'. Five electromagnetic conductors were identified on the Plumbago area of the property during geophysical surveys in September, 2012 (click here to view a map).

Highlights from these two drill holes include:

-Drill hole PB-12-08 intersected 78.51 metres of graphitic carbon ("Cg") at various depths with grades ranging from 1.02% Cg to 10.91% Cg, including 7.39 metres at 3.45% Cg, 8.07 metres at 5.10% Cg, 6 metres at 3.23% Cg, 9.47 metres at 3.41% Cg and 7.84 metres at 2.37% Cg;

-Drill Hole PB-12-09 intersected 64.61 metres of Cg at various depths with grades ranging from 1.59% Cg to 10.01% Cg, including 15.70 metres at 5.28% Cg, 2.87 metres at 6.50% Cg, 3.08 metres at 2.47% Cg and 9.96 metres at 2.76% 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. Samples taken from the Kelly, McLaren and Burke areas of the property returned graphite results up to 22% (see September 13, 2012 news release ).

"Similar to electromagnetic conductor 'A', we have now traced electromagnetic conductor 'C' for 300 metres along strike by drilling exploratory holes to a depth of over 150 metres. The graphite mineralization remains open along strike and at depth for both conductors. The assay results received to date are highly encouraging especially considering our drilling has only been conducted on four of the thirty-two claims subject to the property option agreement," 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.
