CAT Strategic Metals Expands Exploration Potential of Burntland Project Through Additional Land Acquisition

CAT Strategic Metals Corporation (CSE:CAT) ("CAT" or the "Company") announces that it has entered into a Property Acquisition Agreement (the "Agreement") dated November 30, 2021 with 9248-7792 Quebec Inc. ("9248") and Prospect Or Corp. ("POC", and collectively with 9248, the "Vendors") to acquire two additional claims comprised of 520 hectares of land (the "Property") that are adjacent and contiguous to the Burntland Project currently under option to the Company, as announced in a news release on September 17, 2020

Under the terms of the Agreement, the Vendors will assign, transfer and sell each of its rights, titles, and interests in and to the Property in exchange for CAT issuing a total of 7,000,000 common shares (the "Shares") to the Vendors. In addition, the Vendors shall retain a 2% Net Smelter Return (the "NSR") royalty, with CAT having the right to repurchase half of the NSR at any time in consideration of an amount of $1,000,000 being payable to the Vendors.

The Burntland Project

The newly acquired claims will be added to what is known as the Burntland Project in northern New Brunswick, that is currently undergoing a seven-hole diamond drilling exploration program that was initially expected to conclude by the end of December but will continue into January following the Christmas and New Years break. The drill program was put together following extensive trenching work, two airborne geophysical surveys, and an extensive review and interpretation of the historical prospecting database. According to CAT's Project Manager and Qualified Person, Patrick Laforest, "The new acquisition comprises the southern part of the McKenzie Goth, a felsic intrusion at the contact of which is locatedthe Legacy Skarn Copper‐Silver Deposit and theJJ Zone, Skarn Zone, both owned by Murray Brook Minerals Inc. (a subsidiary of Puma Exploration). This acquisition, in addition of the preliminary interpretation of the recent geophysical survey, brings higher potential and quality targets to the Burntland property for the future exploration campaign".

This acquisition of additional claims adjacent to the Company's existing land package came about as a result of a review of certain technical data provided by the Vendors that suggests a potentially strong correlation to, and extension of, the geologic trend that CAT is currently drilling. Robert Rosner, the Company's CEO enthusiastically stated that, "When we looked at the data and geology of the claims that were next door to the land we currently have under option and are drilling, it immediately became apparent that we might have a much larger and highly prospective area to explore and eventually drill. As a result, the board of directors were motivated to acquire the property and immediately commence compiling information toward producing a solid and extensive exploration plan."

Qualified Person

Mr. Patrick Laforest, P.Geo (Québec), is the qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 who has reviewed and approved the technical contents of this press release. The Qualified Person has not completed sufficient work to verify the historic information on the Property, particularly in regard to the neighbouring projects and historical drilling data.

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.

Australia Precious Metals Price Forecast: Top Trends for 2023

The precious metals sector was able to make some gains in 2022 despite broad uncertainty, which eroded market momentum and sentiment.

Three of the four categories (gold, silver and platinum) posted an uptick for the calendar year, while palladium shed 7.6 percent over the 12 month period. An ongoing semiconductor chip shortage in the auto sector weighed on the metal’s demand fundamentals, impeding growth.

The role Russia plays in the palladium market also infused volatility into the sector and led to increased substitution for platinum.
