(TSXV: ILI) (OTCQB:ARXRF) (the "Company" or "Infinite") is pleased to announce a 3,000 m drilling program on its Jackpot Lithium Project. The company has contracted Niigaani Drilling Incorporated who will begin the program in early February.

J.C. St-Amour, President of Infinite Ore commented, "We are pleased to have secured a contract with Niigaani Drilling who have experience drilling lithium pegmatite dykes such as those at Jackpot. The Jackpot property hosts a swarm of stacked granitic pegmatites rich in spodumene, the primary source of lithium. The drill program will expand on drilling conducted in 2018, test the eastern and western extensions of the dykes, as well as other zones of interest with lithium bearing showings in the area." (See Figure 1).
