Few products out there can tackle dust emissions on a large scale, in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way, all the while substantially reducing water waste like EA1” stated Michael Warren, President & CEO, and added “ We also remain positive on the outlook for the agricultural division; sales were slightly weaker than those of the prior year, with $548,510 YTD compared to $750,580 YTD 2018, in part due to the important flooding in Peru and the Corporation’s limited resources, but we see this as picking up in the short term.” Corporate Highlights during Q3-2019The 590.702 litres of EA1 (representing 28% of the $2.6M order placed in 2019) were delivered and the products is now being used at the client’s Latin America mining operations until Q2-2020.Earth Alive entered into a trial agreement with a mining company to conduct a 20.000 m2 test application of EA1 Dust Suppressant at one their mines located in southern Africa, representing sales of C$126,000 for delivery in Q4-2019.The conditional approval of the TSX Venture Exchange for the listing Earth Alive’s common shares and the warrants issued under the prospectus was obtained.

By eliminating this secured debt from our balance sheet and presenting a stronger financial position, we expect that potential customers and business partners will be more likely to invest time and money in the product adoption process and will seek to build long term relationships with Earth Alive. Adding new users is key to building a strong client base for the Corporation’s products and as the sales cycle is a lengthy process requiring sustained efforts and support, namely during the trial process, any uncertainties as to the long-term viability of the Corporation were an important barrier to business development. With a clean balance sheet and adequate funding, we can now move ahead with our strategic plan and fully focus on to the growth of the business” stated Michael Warren.Subsequent Events to Q3Earth Alive completed its short form prospectus offering October 28, 2019, raising gross proceeds of $4,000,000.Holders of the Corporation’s 15% secured convertible debentures agreed to convert their debt in the aggregate amount of $3,529,885.26 (including accrued interest) in exchange of 35,298,851 common shares.
