Conquest Reports 2022 First Quarter Results and Signs $200K OJEP Funding Agreement

Conquest Resources Limited (TSXV: CQR) ("Conquest") reports its first quarter results for the three months ended March 31, 2022.

This news release should be read in conjunction with the Company's unaudited interim consolidated financial statements and the associated management's discussion and analysis (MD&A) for the three months ended March 31, 2022 which are available on the Company's website at www.conquestresources.com or under the Company's profile at www.sedar.com.

Q1 & RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • In January 2022, the Company completed the Phase 1 drill program on its Belfast-TeckMag Project. The drill program was focused on testing those geophysical anomalies that are characteristic of magmatic Cu-Ni-PGE's, VMS, and IOCG mineralization.

  • 25 drill holes, totaling 9,260 metres were drilled over the course of 8 months from June 2021 to January 2022. Assay results have been received for all holes except for the last drill hole (BC21-26) still pending results.

  • On May 1, 2022, Conquest entered into an Ontario Transfer Payment Agreement under the Ontario Junior Exploration Program with the Minister of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry (the "OJEP Funding Agreement"). Pursuant to the OJEP Funding Agreement, the province of Ontario will contribute up to a maximum of $200,000 towards Conquest's exploration costs incurred during the rest of the year up to February 15, 2023, on its drill programs at the Belfast TeckMag Project. The funds will be made available to the Company subject to its satisfying certain project reporting requirements.

ONTARIO JUNIOR EXPLORATION PROGRAM

Conquest is pleased to announce that on April 7, 2022, the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development of Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry ("MNDM") accepted Conquest's application to the second Ontario Junior Exploration Program ("OJEP") intake. Conquest is awarded a maximum $200,000 grant towards the cost of the Belfast-TeckMag Project, conditional upon the execution of a funding agreement which governs the program grants. The conditions were subsequently satisfied and an OJEP Funding Agreement was signed with the MNDM on May 1, 2022.

Conquest CEO Tom Obradovich said, "We are pleased to have been awarded an OJEP grant which will add to the meters of drilling we need to execute in order to test our remaining exploration targets."

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

For the three-month period ended March 31, 2022, the Company recorded a loss of $348,837 or $0.003 per share. The loss included exploration expenditures of $158,733 and stock-based compensation expense of $93,896.

The Company completed its Phase 1 drilling program on its Belfast-TeckMag Project in January 2022 and had no material drilling activities, besides a downhole geophysical survey, during the rest of the first quarter. Therefore, the exploration costs during the three-month period ended March 31, 2022 decreased in comparison with the same period in 2021.

At March 31, 2022, the Company had total current assets of $1,586,333, including cash and cash equivalents of $1,532,615 to settle accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $96,879.

Cash used in operating activities amounted to $416,973 for the three months ended March 31, 2022.

The Company had no proceeds or disbursements from financing or investing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021.

At March 31, 2022, Conquest had not achieved profitable operations, and expects to incur further losses in the development of its business. The Company has continued to rely on equity financing to fund its working capital requirements.

Mineral Resources vs. Mineral Reserves: Key Mining Terms for Investors to Know

Resource investors have access to huge amounts of information when evaluating junior mining stocks, but understanding exactly what a company has in the ground is one of the most crucial steps.

Mineral resources break down into the measured, indicated and inferred categories, while mineral reserves are divided into the proven and probable segments. Each of these terms provides a different level of insight into a company's deposit. So what do they all mean? Below are definitions that can help investors make informed decisions.
