VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/22/16 -- Rainmaker Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:RIR) ("Rainmaker" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, based upon its recent highly anomalous lithium samples obtained from a geochemical sampling program conducted on the Sarcobatus Flat Lithium project in Nevada, the Company will be advancing toward an NI43-101 technical report.
To that end, Rainmaker announces that it has completed a financing of gross proceeds of $156,769.79 in order to support completion of a technical report and other operating activities including an important land payment for its Sarcobatus Flat lithium project in Nevada, as well as general working capital purposes. Completion of the technical report is expected to be finalized and released in Q4 2016.
CEO, Chris M. Healey, P. Geo, commented: "We are excited to advance toward our first technical report, and this financing will support Rainmaker's progress. Our samples have yielded an average of 233 ppm Lithium, and up to 300 ppm, highly promising and compares very favorably even with more advanced Nevada lithium projects. At the same time, we are strengthening our board and I'm pleased to welcome Mr. Maresky who joins to assist our new phase of growth."
Rainmaker wishes to welcome Mr. Isaac Maresky who will be joining the board of directors. Mr. Maresky has been involved in a number of successful transactions from building early stage emerging companies through to public listings. Mr. Maresky's career started as an M&A analyst for a British multinational investment bank servicing large mining corporations. Prior to that he worked for the Royal Bank of Canada in its wealth management group. Mr. Maresky then joined Sunel Securities, a Toronto investment bank with a successful track record of financing mining companies. The Company thanks Ms. Bev Funston for her dedication to the Company as she resigns from the board at this time.

Sarcobatus Flat Lithium Project, Nevada
Rainmaker controls the Sarcobatus Flat Lithium project in Nevada. The property is located along a highway, directly in the Rainmaker acquired the option to own up to 100% through an accretive, share-based acquisition. The lithium content at Sarcobatus Flat has been sampled and demonstrated highly anomalous lithium contents, comparing favourably with samples from nearby Clayton Valley - the only lithium-producing mine in the United States. As well, this area of Nevada has seen a rapid rise in exploration success. Highlighting the demand, a recent U.S. Geological Survey advised, "Lithium supply security has become a top priority for technology companies in the United States and Asia." This is especially relevant given the proximity of Tesla's new Gigafactory.
-- Lithium: crucial mineral for electric car batteries and many other tech purposes -- Favourable Terms: share acquisition, cash reserved for exploration -- High-Potential Project: samples indicate lithium values of 140 - 300 ppm -- Location: mining-friendly Nevada -- Large Land Package: 234 placer mining claims totalling 4,680 acres -- Infrastructure & Accessible: adjacent to US Highway 95 -- Rapid Advancement: lithium brine projects tend to require only a moderate amount of drilling to advance the property -- Low-Cost Exploration/Development/Production: the accessible nature of lithium brine deposits results in low costs overall

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
