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 located the Legacy Skarn Copper‐Silver Deposit and the JJ 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."
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.
