VANCOUVER, April 3, 2013

Patent pending technology describes industrially scalable methods to cut costs
and to boost performance of nano-scale ceramic powders including lithium-ion
battery materials for mobile devices, electric vehicles and grid storage.

VANCOUVER, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Vancouver-based Perfect Lithium Corp.
("Perfect Lithium or the "Company") has filed patents for its innovative
materials processing technology. These novel methods have the potential to
reduce energy storage costs ($/kWh) of lithium-ion battery materials by as
much as 50%.

The patent pending technology is an innovative application of industrially
scalable methods to form fine, ultra-fine, nano-scale and uniform ceramic
powders. It has wide applicability in dental, bio-medical, pharmaceutical,
aerospace, communication, optical, chemical, semi-conductor and energy storage
sectors. Perfect Lithium's immediate focus is on optimizing the process for
lithium-ion battery materials.

The efficiency gains are achieved by reducing raw material input requirements,
by simplifying the methods of processing these raw materials, and by providing
unique nanostructures that enhance performance characteristics such as energy
storage, power and cycling.

Today's battery materials are prepared using a variety of different methods,
requiring time consuming, labour intensive and high-energy procedures, often
with expensive solvents and reactants. Up-and-coming battery materials are
often encumbered by economically impractical procedures that impede ease of
scale-up for commercialization.

Perfect Lithium's methods do not require rigorous and intensive steps such as
the repetitive grinding, milling and blending currently in common use. The
process takes place at ambient or mild temperatures and standard pressures,
eliminating needs for super or subcritical conditions. There are no expensive
chemicals nor reactants and normal procedures such as filtering and washing
are not required. In some cases, up to 75% of the steps have been eliminated.

The patent pending methodology will bring much needed efficiency gains to the
preparation of today's lithium-ion cathode materials and it will also provide
a scalable and economically viable production route for next generation
battery materials in electronics, transportation and grid storage
applications.

Perfect Lithium is executing its plans, on schedule and on budget. A robust
portfolio of intellectual property has already begun, there is ongoing
optimization for a variety of materials and there are plans for a piloting
phase in 2014.

With key patents now filed, the Company is in a position to further
negotiations with a number of interested companies. It is Perfect Lithium's
intention to leverage the value of its unique technologies and seek strategic
partnerships and financiers to assist with the piloting, licensing and
deployment of the technology into the multifaceted battery space.
