Voltage Metals Corp. (formerly, Mansa Exploration Inc.) (CSE: MANS) (the " Company " or " VMC ") is pleased to report that it has completed its previously announced acquisition (the " Transaction ") where it changed its name from "Mansa Exploration Inc." to "Voltage Metals Corp." (" VMC "), and then acquired Voltage Metals Inc. (" Voltage Metals ").
Voltage is a mineral exploration company focused on its 100% interest in the St. Laurent Project located in St. Laurent Township , Northern Ontario , 160 kilometres northeast of Timmins , 50 kilometres south of Detour Lake Mine and 20 kilometres southwest of Casa Berardi Mine. Past shallow drilling at the St. Laurent Project identified disseminated multi‐element sulphide mineralization across notable widths trending towards a large gabbro‐hosted magnetic feature. The Ni‐ Cu‐Co‐Au‐Pt‐Pd zone is open along strike and at depth. This mineralized zone, importantly, is coincident with a strong 600‐metre long EM anomaly. Drilling to date has not yet intersected massive sulphides, and the EM anomaly has not yet been explained. The disseminated sulphide halo provides an important vector to guide the upcoming future exploration work.
Voltage also owns a 100% interest in the Montcalm Project, the Nova Project and the Gambler Project, which are early‐stage exploration projects located in the Montcalm Greenstone Belt, approximately 65 kilometres northwest of Timmins, Ontario .
Overview of the Transaction
The Transaction was completed by way of a share exchange pursuant to which VMC acquired all the issued and outstanding common shares of Voltage Metals (the " Voltage Metals Shares ") in exchange for its common shares (" VMC Shares ") on the basis of 1.269841 VMC Share for each Voltage Metals Share issued and outstanding for a total of 36 million VMC Shares being issued to Voltage Metals shareholders, as a result of which Voltage Metals became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.
A finder's fee of 750,000 VMC Shares was also issued to an arm's length party in connection with the completion of the Transaction.
For further information with respect to the Transaction and the business of VMC, please refer to the listing statement (the " Listing Statement ") of VMC which will be filed under its profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com .
