(" Canada Nickel ") whereby LAURION and CGM have agreed to grant Canada Nickel an option to acquire a 100% undivided interest in and to the Midlothian Property (as defined below).

LAURION and CGM entered into a joint venture agreement on July 25, 2019 (the " Joint Venture ") for the purposes of extending the parties' prior arrangements regarding an early stage exploration project located 80 km west-southwest of Kirkland Lake, Ontario and 25 km west-southwest of Matachewan, Ontario (the " Midlothian Property "). The principal purpose of the arrangement was to advance the development of any commercially exploitable ore body on the Midlothian Property. Under the terms of the Joint Venture, CGM was appointed as the operator owning a 70% interest, while LAURION retained a 30% interest in the mining claims.

On November 19, 2021 , LAURION and CGM entered into an agreement with Canada Nickel whereby Canada Nickel acquired the irrevocable right and option to acquire a 100% undivided interest in and to the Midlothian Property. In exchange for the option, Canada Nickel made an up-front cash payment of $50,000 and issued 100,000 common shares in the capital of Canada Nickel. In order to earn a 100% interest in the Midlothian Property, Canada Nickel must complete, pay or issue (as applicable) the following:

a)

an exploration program on the Midlothian Property having a cumulative value of $2.5 million (within four years), including first-year expenditures of $500,000; and

b)

additional cash payments and share issuances totaling $1 million and 350,000 shares, respectively, comprised of the following:

$100,000 and 35,000 shares (within 18 i.months);


ii.

$200,000 and 70,000 shares (within 27 months);


iii.

$300,000 and 105,000 shares (within three years); and


iv.

$400,000 and 140,000 shares (within four years).

LAURION and CGM will retain a net smelter returns royalty of 4.00% for gold and 2.00% for nickel with a commercial production payment of $4.0 million .

LAURION's President and Chief Executive Officer, Cynthia Le Sueur-Aquin , states: "The inclusion of Canada Nickel to our arrangement with CGM is a positive development for the project located on the Midlothian Property. By granting an option to Canada Nickel, LAURION aims to continue to realize value on the property and create value for its stakeholders through the efforts of both CGM and Canada Nickel, without any significant cash commitments by LAURION."

Canada Nickel's stated focus is to advance the next generation of high quality, high potential nickel-cobalt projects to deliver the metals needed to power the electric vehicle revolution and feed the high growth stainless steel market.

About Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc.

The Corporation is a junior mineral exploration and development company listed on the TSXV under the symbol LME and on the OTCPINK under the symbol LMEFF. LAURION now has 242,565,253 outstanding shares of which approximately 81% are owned and controlled by Insiders who are eligible investors under the "Friends and Family" categories. LAURION's emphasis is on the development of its flagship project, the 100% owned mid-stage 47 km 2 Ishkoday Project, and its gold-silver and gold-rich polymetallic mineralization with a significant upside potential. The mineralization on Ishkoday is open at depth beyond the current core-drilling limit of -200 m from surface, based on the historical mining to a -685 m depth, in the past producing Sturgeon River Mine. The Brenbar Property, which was acquired in 2020 and is contiguous with the Ishkoday Property, hosts the historic Brenbar Mine. LAURION believes the mineralization to be a direct extension of mineralization from the Ishkoday Property.

Vanstar Signs LOI with IAMGOLD to Acquire the Calder Bousquet Property and Provides Update on Nelligan Project

Vanstar Mining Resources Inc. (TSXV: VSR (OTCQX: VMNGF) ("Vanstar", or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed a letter of intent ("LOI") with IAMGOLD Corporation ("IAMGOLD") to acquire a 75% interest in the Calder-Bousquet property (the "Property") also referred as the Bousquet-Odyno project. The Property consists of 37 contiguous mining claims covering approximately 1,490 ha and is located directly south of highway 117 between the towns of Rouyn-Noranda and Malartic. The Property lies within the Abitibi greenstone gold belt, along the Cadillac break, a prolific gold bearing regional structure that has produced 100 million ounces of gold since 1900. Historical drilling on the property prior to IAMGOLD has identified a number of gold zones, including the Calder-Bousquet Zones No. 2, No. 4 and No. 5. Historical drilling has been relatively shallow, down to approximately 250 metres ("m").

From 2010 to 2016, IAMGOLD engaged in successive exploration programs including surface geological mapping and outcrop stripping to develop and refine structural controls relating to the historical gold zones, geophysics and geochemistry surveys to guide drilling programs and the completion of just over 20,000 m of diamond drilling to test historical gold zones and other exploration targets. Selected results from IAMGOLD's drilling programs include:

TDG Gold Corp. (TSXV: TDG) (the "Company" or "TDG") is very pleased to announce the first drill results of its 2021 Shasta diamond drill campaign from holes SH21-004 and SH21-005. These holes are located over 50 metres ("m") south of historical underground workings and provide the first drill section and new samples of in-situ mineralization. These results have been received directly from SGS Canada Inc. ("SGS") and are the first preliminary 2021 drill results released for TDG's Shasta project which is located in the Toodoggone district of north-central B.C. The results are subject to further quality assurance and quality control assessment, and several over limit re-assays are pending for gold (>10 grams per tonne "gt") and silver (>100 gt) as shown below. The highest grade gold ("Au") and silver ("Ag") assay intervals are shown in Table 1 below. The assay results reported either side of the high grade gold and silver intercepts are indicative of halo style mineralization at Shasta (see Table 2) and which has been demonstrated to exist in epithermal gold and silver deposits in the Toodoggone district
