Marvel Discovery Corp. (TSXV:MARV)(Frankfurt:O4T1)(OTCQB:MARVF); (the "Company") reported on April 20, 2021 it had expanded its footprint in the Rocky Mountain Rare-Earth Metals Belt. The Company entered into an agreement to purchase two claim groups, located approximately 85km NE of Prince George, B.C. The Wicheeda North property is located 5km northeast from Defence Metals Wicheeda Rare Earth (REE) Project which has an indicated mineral resource of 4,890,000 tonnes averaging 3.02% LREO (Light Rare Elements) and an inferred mineral resource of 12,100,000 tonnes averaging 2.90 LREO (https:defensemetals.comproject). Defence Metals just announced a second drill was being mobilized to expediate their resource expansion. Marvel and through Power One Resources one of our equity holdings we control one of the largest land packages adjacent to Defence Metals ground

Karim Rayani, President Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Geophysical studies show the Wicheeda North shares similar geology and structures as our neighbor Defence Metals. Defence is aggressively working to expand their resource - we are well positioned in the area and look forward to commencing our inaugural exploration program once we have reviewed all our newly acquired datasets. Our exploration plans include new high-resolution aeromagnetic surveys and to utilize AI (artificial intelligence) algorithms to assist with the prioritization of target areas. We are thrilled to be involved in the REE sector, including what I like to call Space Metals. This further solidifies Marvel as a multi-commodity resource company."

The Wicheeda Carbonatite Deposit, held by Defense Metals Corp., is host to an indicated resource of 4.89 million tonnes (Mt) at 3.02% light rare earth oxide (LREO) and an inferred resource of 12.1 Mt at 2.90% LREO, using a cut-off grade of 1.5% total metal (see "Technical Report on the Wicheeda Property, British Columbia, Canada" with an Effective Date of June 27th, 2020). Management cautions that past results or discoveries on proximal properties (i.e. the Wicheeda Carbonatite Deposit) may not necessarily be indicative to the presence of mineralization on the Company's properties (i.e. Wicheeda North).

The Defense Metals Wicheeda REE Property is located in the Foreland Belt of the Canadian Cordillera, within the structurally dominant NW-trending Rocky Mountain Trench. The Rocky Mountain Trench is recognized for the occurrence of several Paleozoic carbonatite-syenite intrusion-related complexes that were geologically deformed, tilted, and transported to the east in thrust panels. The REE-enriched carbonatites located on the Defense Metals property is part of a narrow, elongate, southeast-trending intrusive carbonatite-syenite complex utilizing a structural panel within sedimentary sequences of the Cambrian to Ordovician Kechika Group.

Carbonatite-related rocks are exceptionally rare, with less than 700 complexes know worldwide. They are a major host for rare metals, such as niobium and tantalum, and rare earth elements (REE's), and are also known to host economic concentrations of copper, gold and other base metals. The world's largest niobium mine, Araxa in Brazil, and several of the world's largest-rare earth element deposits, including Lynas Corporation's Mt. Weld deposit in Australia and MP Material's Mountain Pass Deposit in the United States, are all hosted by carbonatites. Mineralization and REE deposits described above are not necessarily indicative of the mineralization on the Property.

Marvels Wicheeda North Property, consists of six mineral claims, which encompass 2135 ha, immediately northwest of Defense Metals Wicheeda Property, which hosts the Wicheeda Carbonatite. This brings the company's total land holdings within the Wicheeda Rare Earth Metal Belt to 4,423 ha covering a total of 18 claims. Preliminary interpretation of the regional magnetic fabric by Marvel indicated the Property contained a distinct oval magnetic feature underpinning Marvel's acquisition of the ground. Similar magnetic features are prominent on the Defense Metals REE Project, interpreted to be consistent with the carbonite host to their REE mineralization.

Within the USA, the recent announcement of $2 Trillion USD of green infrastructure spending and jobs plan will focus on modernizing and electrifying the US energy grid to handle modern electric vehicles that will result in a carbon-neutral economy by 2035. In order to facilitate this transition, a dramatic surge in demand for green energy metals and minerals will take place. These include light rare earth elements such as neodymium and praseodymium (used in the creation of permanent magnets), niobium, and copper. Marvel Discovery Corp. is actively positioning itself to ensure it is well placed to capitalize on this growing market. Space metals, and various rare earth metals such as Niobium are known for their high melting point withstanding extreme heat and have direct applications in nuclear and space flight.

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

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. 'S First Drill Results at Shasta Report Up To 25 G/T Gold and >100 G/T Silver

TDG Gold Corp. 'S First Drill Results at Shasta Report Up To 25 G/T Gold and >100 G/T Silver

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
