Mink Ventures Corporation (TSXV: MINK.P) ("Mink" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, further to its news release of June 27, 2022, it has entered into a definitive option and joint venture agreement dated August 10, 2022 (the "Definitive Agreement") with Voltage Metals Corp. (CSE: VOLT) ("Voltage"). Pursuant to the Definitive Agreement, Mink has been granted an option to acquire (the "Transaction") an 80% interest in the Montcalm Ni-Cu-Co project (the "Montcalm Project"). The Montcalm Project covers 38.8 sq. km and is located adjacent to Glencore's past producing Montcalm Mine, which had historical production of approximately 3.9 million tonnes grading 1.25% Ni, 0.67% Cu and 0.051% Co (Ontario Geological Survey, Atkinson, 2011) The Montcalm project is located 60 km northwest of Timmins, Ontario and has excellent access and infrastructure. The Transaction is intended to be Mink's "Qualifying Transaction" for purposes of the TSX Venture Exchange's Capital Pool Company program.

Terms of the Definitive Agreement:

Pursuant to the Definitive Agreement, Mink may acquire an 80% undivided interest in the Montcalm project from Voltage by, among other things, making the following cash payments, share issuances and minimum work expenditures:

Part 1:

  • Pay $25,000 to Voltage on or before the date on which the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") issues its bulletin in respect of the Qualifying Transaction (the "Calculation Start Date");
  • Issue 800,000 common shares in the capital of Mink to Voltage on or immediately prior to the Calculation Start Date; and
  • Incur a minimum of $300,000 in work expenditures on the Property on or before April 10, 2023.

Part 2:

  • Pay $25,000 to Voltage on or before the first anniversary of the Calculation Start Date;
  • Issue 800,000 common shares in the capital of Mink to Voltage on or before the first anniversary of the Calculation Start Date; and
  • Incur a minimum of $300,000 in work expenditures on the Property on or before April 10, 2024.

Mink may accelerate and carry forward any of the cash payments, share issuances or work expenditures. Upon full exercise of the option, Mink shall assume responsibility for payment of the aggregate 1.25% net smelter returns royalty to the extent of its relative ownership interest in the Montcalm project.

Completion of the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, Exchange acceptance.

The Qualifying Transaction, if completed, is an Arm's Length Qualifying Transaction. No Shareholder approval is required to complete the Qualifying Transaction.

Private Placement:

Mink proposes to complete a private placement raising not less than $1,000,000 (the "Private Placement") to fund the phase one work program on the Montcalm project and general and administrative operating expenses. The Company intends to issue a further press release announcing the terms of the Private Placement.

Highlights of the Montcalm Project:

  • 38.8 sq. km claim block adjacent to Montcalm Ni-Cu-Co Mine (historical production of approximately 3.9 million tonnes grading 1.25% Ni, 0.67% Cu and 0.051% Co (Ontario Geological Survey, Atkinson, 2011) with mine host geology (Montcalm Gabbro Complex "MGC") extending on to Mink's property.
  • Mink's holdings cover ~ 66% of the gabbro zone component of the MGC shown in blue in the accompanying Figure 2. The gabbro zone is the primary host of the Montcalm Mine. Other significant features include the megabreccia zone known to host anomalous nickel and copper mineralization designated Unit 4 in Figure 2.
  • There are a number of drill ready targets to be tested.
  • Some of the higher priority VTEM targets and ground IP targets that remain to be tested are within or proximal to a prospective target area designated the "Hook Zone" located within the gabbro zone of MGC.
  • A large portion of the southern section of the property has not been tested with airborne VTEM, which is capable of detecting deeper conductive zones between 350-400 meters below surface, well beyond the +- 200-meter capability of historical surveys. Known deposits at the adjacent mine were present well below the 200-meter elevation.

Future Exploration Plans which are subject to the completion and recommendations of an NI 43-101 report, which is currently underway, include:

  • An airborne VTEM survey and airborne gravity survey in the southern part of the property to complement existing surveys;
  • Maxwell Plate analysis of all VTEM data;
  • Further ground induced polarization (IP) surveys over priority Hook Target VTEM anomalies and magnetic anomalies;
  • Ground prospecting and sampling;
  • Secure permits for a diamond drill program

Voltage Metals Corp. Announces Personnel Change and Status Update on Outstanding Filings

Voltage Metals Corp. Announces Personnel Change and Status Update on Outstanding Filings

Voltage Metals Corp. ("Voltage" or the "Company") (CSE: VOLT) (OTC: VLTMF) is pleased to announce that Alice Margulies, CA, CPA, has been appointed as the Company's interim CFO effective June 8, 2023 bringing her professional expertise in junior mining audit.  Ms. Margulies takes over from Nickolas Mah whose resignation as CFO was effective the day prior.

Voltage Metals Logo (CNW Group/Voltage Metals Corp.)

The Company further announces that in consultation with Ms. Margulies and its auditors, it has revised the expected date for filing its outstanding annual financial statements, management's discussion and analysis and the required certifications (the "Issuer Statements") to July 31, 2023 .

As was previously announced on May 5, 2023 , the Company's application for a temporary management cease trade order ("MCTO") under National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Orders ("NP 12-203"), made on April 18, 2023 , was granted by the Ontario Securities Commission ("OSC") effective May 2 , 2023.

Said application for an MCTO was made on the basis that the Company was unable to file the Issuer Statements on or before the prescribed filing deadline of May 1 , 2023.  The Company underwent a business combination transaction in its last financial year (the completion of which was previously announced on March 11, 2022 ), adding to the complexity of the audit of the Issuer Statements and contributing to the filing delay.  The Company's recent change of auditors has also contributed to the delay.

The MCTO prohibits trading in securities of the Company by its CEO and CFO until the Issuer Statements are filed and the MCTO is lifted.  While the MCTO remains in effect, the general public will continue to be able to trade in the Company's listed securities.  By its terms, the MCTO will be revoked two business days following the receipt by the OSC of all filings the Company is required to make under Ontario securities law, or further order of the OSC.

The Company confirms that it will satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines set out under Sections 9 and 10 of NP 12-203 until the Issuer Statements are filed.
