Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, December 3, 2012 - Rock Tech Lithium Inc. (TSX-Venture: RCK; Frankfurt: RJIA; Pink Sheets: RCKTF) (the "Company" or "Rock Tech") announces additional assay results from its Lochaber graphite property in Quebec.

These two drill holes were the first to test the graphite mineralization along electromagnetic conductor 'C'. The electromagnetic conductors were identified during geophysical surveys in September, 2012 (click here to view a map). Highlights from these two drill holes include:

-Drill hole PB-12-06 intersected 100.50 metres of graphitic carbon ("Cg") at various depths with grades ranging from 1.01% Cg to 14.47% Cg, including 13.89 metres at 3.67% Cg,

-Drill Hole PB-12-07 intersected 37.99 metres of Cg at various depths with grades ranging from 1.03% Cg to 14.52% Cg including 9.20 metres at 5.61% Cg and 8.00 metres at 5.13% Cg.

"The initial results of the drill holes testing electromagnetic conductor 'C' are encouraging as they demonstrate the potential for an additional zone of graphite mineralization on the southern portion of the Lochaber property," said Afzaal Pirzada, Rock Tech's VP 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.
