Brunswick Exploration Options Potential Extension to Allkem’s James Bay Lithium Deposit

Brunswick Exploration Inc. (TSX-V:BRW; “BRW” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has signed an option agreement with Osisko Development Corp. (TSX-V: ODV) to acquire a 90% interest in the Anatacau Property (the “Property”) located in the James Bay-Eeyou Istchee region of Quebec and which is host to lithium mineralization. Furthermore, one block of the Anatacau property is located just east of Allkem’s (TSX: AKE) James Bay Lithium deposit (previously known as the Cyr deposit).

Mr. Killian Charles, President of BRW, commented: “The addition of the Anatacau Property marks another exciting turning point for Brunswick Exploration. The Property covers 370 square kilometres, of which the western block is located just east of one of Canada’s largest hard rock lithium reserves. The Property may host an extension to the deposit as this area has never been drilled. Furthermore, Quebec government records indicate the presence of spodumene mineralization further east and south on the Property in three distinct outcrop locations. Alongside the Hearst property in Ontario, BRW now has two projects where it plans to test drill targets in Q1 2023.”

The large Anatacau property package contains a total of 704 claims, representing 37,058 hectares (370 sq. km.). The property is accessible year-round and is located near KM 381 on the Billy Diamond Highway (a camp managed by the Société de développement de la Baie-James), and the west block of the Property is adjacent to Allkem’s James Bay lithium deposit, which is host to a 40.3Mt Indicated Mineral Resource Estimate grading 1.4% Li2O and Reserves of 37.2Mt grading 1.3% Li2O (for more details, see Allkem December 21, 2021 Feasibility Study). Drilling in 2018 by Galaxy Lithium intersected spodumene mineralization near the Property boundary (MRNQ assessment files, GM 71028).

The Property has historically never been explored for lithium mineralization. Quebec government public records also indicate the presence of three spodumene-bearing pegmatite outcrops on the main block of the Property, one located approximately 22 kilometres ESE of the James Bay Lithium Deposit. The area will be prioritized for prospecting and trenching in summer 2023. BRW also expects to begin a drilling campaign in late Q1 2023 to test the potential for new lithium pegmatites along strike of those found on Allkem’s property.

ODEV Anatacau Option Agreement

The Option allows BRW to acquire a 90% interest in the Property for a total consideration of 4,000,000 shares over a two-year period, upon closing of the option agreement (the “Agreement”) under the following terms:

  • An initial payment of 500,000 shares, within five (5) business days of the Effective Date of the Agreement;
  • A payment of 1,500,000 shares, on or before the 1st year anniversary of the Effective Date of the Agreement;
  • A payment of 2,000,000 shares, on or before the 2nd year anniversary of the Effective Date of the Agreement.

In order to exercise the Option; Brunswick Exploration shall fund an aggregate amount of $3,000,000 in Work Expenditures in accordance with the following schedule:

  • An aggregate of $500,000 before the 1st year anniversary of the Effective Date;
  • An aggregate of $1,000,000 before the 2nd year anniversary of the Effective Date;
  • An aggregate of $2,000,000 before the 3rd year anniversary of the Effective Date;
  • An aggregate of $3,000,000 before the 4th year anniversary of the Effective Date.

Upon execution of the Option, BRW will retain a right of first refusal on ODEV’s 10% ownership. Furthermore, ODEV will not be expected to fund its pro-rata share of the exploration budget following the exercise of the Option until the construction of a mine.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Awaits Fed Meeting, Who's Funding Juniors Right Now?

The gold price remained firmly above US$1,900 per ounce this week, continuing an upward trajectory that started around the beginning of November. By Friday's (January 27) close, the yellow metal was at about US$1,927 per ounce.

Market participants were waiting for the latest PCE Price Index data, which looks at personal consumption expenditures — in other words, the prices that people in the US pay for goods and services. Released at the end of the week, the new numbers show that core PCE, which excludes food and energy, rose 4.4 percent year-on-year in December and 0.3 percent month-on-month.

Attention is now shifting to the US Federal Reserve's next meeting, which is scheduled to run from January 31 to February 1. Speculation is rife that the central bank will hike by only a quarter of a percentage point, but for now we'll have to wait and see.

Gold Mining in Nunavut: Tapping into Canada's Frontier Mining Jurisdiction

As Canada's last frontier for mineral exploration, Nunavut is also one of the most promising. Covering an area roughly the size of Western Europe, the region is incredibly rich in mineral resources, including iron ore, diamonds and oil and gas, plus a wealth of critical minerals.

In addition to this impressive mineral inventory, gold is arguably Nunavut's greatest mineral resource. Along with two current producing gold mines, the territory hosts multiple gold deposits at various stages of exploration, construction and development.

One of the most promising regions for gold exploration and discovery in Nunavut sits proximal to the Rankin Inlet. Primarily, this promise is because it hosts Canada's second largest greenstone belt — geologic formations known for having incredibly rich deposits of gold. Significant exploration and discovery has already occurred in this area, yielding both valuable data and improved geological models that can be leveraged by newcomers to the area.

Mink Ventures' Exploration Progress from Its Montcalm Ni-Cu-Co Project

Mink Ventures' Exploration Progress from Its Montcalm Ni-Cu-Co Project

Mink Ventures Corporation (TSXV: MINK) ("Mink" or the "Company") today announced an exploration progress update from its 40 km2 Montcalm nickel copper cobalt project, located adjacent to Glencore's historical Montcalm Mine, 65 km northwest of Timmins, Ontario. The Montcalm Mine had historical production of approximately 3.93 million tonnes of ore grading 1.25% Ni, 0.67% Cu and 0.051% Co. (Ontario Geological Survey, Atkinson, 2010). In just over two weeks since beginning its exploration program, the Company has completed the following at its Montcalm Project (see accompanying Fig.2).

  • Completed multiple, borehole induced polarization (IP) surveys, as well as cross hole configurations, within the western portion of the Hook Zone, on five, priority, historical drill holes where unexplained electromagnetic (EM) targets remain relevant. The new, advanced borehole IP technology being utilized here can seek for a 250-meter radius around a borehole and deeper still from the bottom of a hole for both massive and disseminated targets and model these zones in 3D.
  • Outlined a number of significant targets of interest from the preliminary field data from the borehole IP survey. The field portion of the borehole surveying will be completed within the week and more detailed processing of the data will continue to prioritize targets for Mink's diamond drill program.
  • Applied to the Ontario Government's Critical Minerals Innovation Fund for a non-dilutive, $200,000 grant to build upon the success of Mink's Phase 1, proof-of-concept borehole IP survey, with a Phase 2 and Phase 3 survey program within or proximal to the Hook Zone. These surveys can seek massive and disseminated mineralization cost-effectively and will continue to be an important new exploration tool at Montcalm.
  • Mobilized a line-cutting and surface IP crew to evaluate the Southern Target Area of the project. A number of untested historical EM targets and magnetic anomalies identified by previous operators and government surveys will be the focus of this program and will better refine these targets for drill testing. The surface IP survey will begin immediately once the borehole IP work to the north is completed and will help refine and prioritize these targets.
  • Secured a diamond drill contractor for a phase 1 drill program which will follow in late February upon the completion of the geophysical surveys.

Significant advances in IP geophysical technology have enabled deeper penetrating systems with incredible clarity. The new IP systems allow for the production of 3D geophysical models of mineralized zones. Mink is benefitting from the work of previous operators who left numerous EM targets unexplained or untested in historical holes; these holes can now be probed with the new borehole IP technology. Borehole IP systems now have the capability to see a 250 meters radius around a bore hole and significantly below the end of the drill hole, which is an extremely cost-effective way of evaluating both disseminated and more massive targets at depth. The deepest known Ni Cu Co lenses at the Montcalm Mine are known to extend from approximately 250 to 400 meters vertical depth, which is well beyond the capability of many older surface EM systems.
