RB Energy Inc. (the "Company" or "RBI" or RB Energy") (TSX: RBI) (U.S. OTC: RBEIF) is pleased to provide an update on operations at its 100% owned Quebec Lithium mine located near Val d'Or, Quebec.

The hydro-metallurgical circuit of the lithium plant has now been operating in commissioning mode for five weeks and is producing a very high quality battery grade lithium carbonate product (99.9% lithium carbonate). The first samples from this commissioning run are being sent to our off take partners this week for quality testing.
