Bernard Lapointe, Founder and Former CEO of Arianne Phosphate, Joins the First Phosphate Advisory Board



Saguenay, Canada - Newsfile Corp. - November 2, 2022 - First Phosphate Corp. ("First Phosphate" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the appointment of Bernard Lapointe to the Advisory Board of the Company.

Bernard Lapointe founded Arianne Phosphate Inc. (TSXV: DAN) in 1997 and served as its president until 2013. Bernard holds a PhD in mineral resources from the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi (UQAC). Before Arianne Phosphate, Bernard was director of the Fonds Minier du Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean, Quebec. He currently sits on the Board of Directors of several public companies in the resource and fertilizer sectors.

"Bernard Lapointe's decades spent developing the Arianne Phosphate project gives him immeasurable experience that will be made available to First Phosphate in establishing our best practices for internal operations and for environment stewardship," said John Passalacqua, CEO of First Phosphate. "I look forward to working closely with Bernard as we roll out First Phosphate's six-phase integration strategy within the North American and global LFP battery industry."

First Phosphate holds over 1,500 sq. km of total land claims in the Saguenay Region of Quebec, Canada that it is actively developing. Its properties consist of rare anorthosite igneous rock formation that generally yields high purity phosphate concentrate devoid of high concentrations of deleterious heavy metals.

"I am excited about First Phosphate's development plan and its commitment to producing battery-grade phosphate through clean and environmentally responsible processing methods, for a consistent and ethical supply right here in Quebec," said Mr. Lapointe. "I look forward to bringing my experience in the phosphate industry to First Phosphate and to supporting the development of best practices for the business from the experience that I gained during my years with Arianne Phosphate."

First Phosphate's flagship Lac à l'Orignal property is located approximately 110 km driving-distance north of the City of Saguenay, Quebec's sixth largest city, which hosts daily flights to Montreal, a skilled industrial workforce, strong local infrastructure, and which is 30 km driving-distance from the deep sea Port of Saguenay.

First Phosphate's Bégin-Lamarche property is located approximately 90 km driving distance from the deep sea Port of Saguenay. The Company recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Port of Saguenay to secure deep sea access to global markets and a valuable industrial port development footprint.

First Phosphate has been awarded drilling permits for its Lac à l'Orignal and Bégin-Lamarche properties, an important step in First Phosphate's six-phase development plan for the North American LFP battery industry. First Phosphate is expected to announce the results of its 43-101 technical report for Lac à l'Orignal this fall.
