Earth Alive's EA1 Dust Control Technology Selected for Public-Private Partnership in Chile

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 09/22/16 -- Earth Alive Clean Technologies Inc. (CSE: EAC) ("Earth Alive" or the "Company"), a leading Canadian Clean-Tech company, developer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art microbial technology-based products for the Agriculture and Mining industries, is pleased to announce the following:

The Corporacion para del Desarrollo de la Region de Atacama (CORPROA), in Chile, has approved funding for mining operations interested in testing the Company's EA1 microbial dust control technology. EA1 is a 100% organic and biodegradable dust suppressant which is locally manufactured and distributed in Chile, as well as in other parts of the world by the Company's distribution partner Brenntag (see Company's press releases dated December 14, 2015 and August 18, 2016).

Earth Alive's EA1 product uses microbial technology to control soil born dust emanations by trapping and keeping the suspended dust particles in the ground. EA1 reintroduces natural microbial strains and various natural compounds in the soil to create binding and stabilisation conditions in the roadbed.

CORPROA, which recently brought Lundin Mining, Atacama Kozan Mining and Minera Pucobre together to a meeting in the City of Tierra Amarilla, seeks to support and contribute to the relationship between the mining industry and the community of Atacama. The Atacama region of Chile opened its doors to CORPROA's program in order to prove the effectiveness of Earth Alive's EA1 microbial technology, as contamination by road dust is one of the greatest environmental concerns of the mining industry in the Atacama region of Chile. Together with CORPROA, mining companies are assessing the feasibility of using the Chilean Economic Development Agency's (CORFO) financing instruments available to find better dust control solutions.

"We are grateful to CORPROA for initiating testing of our EA1 dust control technology as the preferred solution and the best ally for controlling road dust in the mining industry's operations," said Mauricio Pino, Dust Solutions Vice President for Earth Alive in Chile. "Our EA1 product can play a decisive role in making mining operations' dust control operations more economical and efficient. EA1 controls road dust emissions by up to 90%, as well as reduces fresh water needs to control dust by up to 80%". Mr. Pino concluded by saying, "EA1 is by far the most environmentally sustainable dust control technology available in the world today."

"Our EA1 technology already has a strong track-record in Chile with its large scale use at Barrick Gold's Pascua-Lama mine," stated David Gilmour, CEO of Earth Alive. "We are very pleased to be building upon that success with CORPROA, and we are extremely confident that these applications will further confirm the performance and benefits of using our dust control technology, resulting in many more new partnerships."

Dr. Viviane Yargeau, CTO of Earth Alive, stated, "A performance white paper produced with completed testing at Pascua-Lama confirmed the high effectiveness of specific microbial strains to control airborne dust particles. With the availability of EA1, modern mining operations are no longer required to cause environmental harm by using harsh chemicals and large quantities of water in their dust control operations."
