VANCOUVER, Aug. 11, 2022 - Argentina Lithium & Energy Corp. (TSXV: LIT) (FSE: OAY3) (OTC: PNXLF), ("Argentina Lithium" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has closed the 1st Tranche of the non-brokered private placement financing announced on July 21, 2022, and increased on August 9 and August 11, 2022 through the issuance of 6,215,000 units ("Units") at a subscription price of $0.20 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $1,243,000.

In addition, 181,300 non-transferable finder's warrants are issuable (the "Finder's Warrants"). Each Finder's Warrant entitling a finder to purchase one common share at a price of $0.38 per share for two years from the date of issue, expiring on August 11, 2024.
Certain insiders of the Company participated in the Private Placement for $20,000 in Units. Such participation represents a related-party transaction under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), but the transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the subject matter of the transaction, nor the consideration paid, exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
