Tocvan Ventures Corp. acquires 100% interest in the Rogers Creek Copper Porphyry Property in southwestern BC and announces spin-out transaction


Calgary, Alberta - TheNewswire September 30 th th, 2021, TOCVAN Ventures (CSE:TOC ) ( OTC: TCVNF ) ( WKN:TV3A2PE64), is pleased to announce that they have entered into an agreement whereby Tocvan is acquiring 100% interest in the Rogers Creek Property in B.C. from C3 Metals Inc. ("C3 Metals") Tocvan previously held an option to a acquire up to an 80% interest in the property from C3 Metals

Under the terms of the new agreement with C3 Metals, Tocvan is acquiring a 100% interest in the Rogers Creek Property and the previous option agreement is now void. In consideration, C3 Metals will receive 500,000 common shares of Tocvan. C3 Metals will also receive common shares of Cascade Copper Corp. ("Cascade Copper") (described below) equal to a value of $75,000, based on prelisting finance price, upon listing on the Canadian Securities Exchange. C3 Metals will retain a 2% NSR on the Rogers Creek Property, 1% of which can be repurchased by Cascade Copper for one million dollars.

Tocvan is also pleased to announce that, subject to shareholder and regulatory approval, the company is planning to spin-out 100% of the Rogers Creek Property to Cascade Copper, newly created company, with a focus on copper porphyry exploration assets in southern British Columbia (the "Spin-Out"). It is expected that the Spin-Out will be structed as a plan of arrangement transaction under the Business Corporations Act (Alberta).  Under the terms of the proposed plan of arrangement, Tocvan shareholders are to receive one common share of Cascade Copper for every six shares held of Tocvan. When and if approved, Tocvan will have no interest in the Rogers Creek Property.

Derek Wood CEO of Tocvan commented, " We believe the value of the Rogers Creek Property is not reflected in Tocvan's current share price and see the proposed Spin-Out to create additional value for Tocvan shareholders. We are extremely pleased to reach this agreement with C3 Metals. The agreement provides for greater flexibility in how Rogers Creek is advanced towards discovery. By creating a new company, Tocvan shareholders can participate in the upside possibility through share ownership of Cascade Copper, while Tocvan is able to focus on its two Mexican properties and minimize share dilution. We believe the proposed Spin-Out will be very beneficial to Tocvan shareholders and we expect that this transaction will unlock the value of the Rogers Creek Property and increase shareholder value by allowing capital markets to ascribe value to the Rogers Creek Property independently of the other properties held by Tocvan. This is a great opportunity for all the shareholders of record on the effective date, which will be announced in due course. Shareholders owning Tocvan shares will be eligible to receive the proposed spin-off shares of Cascade Copper at the aforementioned ratio."

About Cascade Copper:

Cascade Copper is a newly created company that will have two very advanced-stage copper porphyry properties located within the Miocene age intrusions of the Cascade Magmatic Arc in southwestern BC: the Rogers Creek Property and the Fire Mountain Property. The two properties are contiguous, and both are advanced to a drill-ready stage. Combined, the properties have seen over 3 million dollars of exploration to date and cover an area of approximately 240 square kilometers. Work to date has advanced the properties from a small showing discovered on a logging road in 2007 to an advanced exploration-stage with evidence for a large mineralized system. This has validated the initial working hypothesis that there is considerable potential to discover significant mineralization within the Miocene age intrusions of the Cascade Magmatic Arc in southwestern BC, which have seen very little modern exploration.

The proposed Spin‐Out will be subject to the approval of Tocvan's shareholders which Tocvan intends to seek at a special meeting of shareholders (the "Shareholders' Meeting"). The date for the Shareholders Meeting has not yet been determined. The Spin-Out is subject to Canadian Securities Exchange ("CSE") approval and the Spin‐Out also requires the approval of the Alberta Court of Queen's Bench. Tocvan intends to seek a listing of the Cascade Copper common shares on the CSE but no assurance can be provided that such a listing will be obtained. Any such listing will be subject to Cascade Copper fulfilling all of the requirements of the CSE.  Further details of the Spin‐Out, including the date for the Shareholders' Meeting and any amendments to the number of Cascade Copper common shares to be granted to shareholders of Tocvan will be announced in the near future. Shareholders are cautioned that the final details of the Spin‐Out are still to be determined and there is no certainty that the Spin‐Out will be completed on the terms currently proposed or at all.

smart money in mining panel at the 2024 vancouver resource investment conference

How is the Smart Money Investing in Mining Today?

The resource industry has long been seen as risky for investors. Filled with juniors looking to make a name for themselves with a discovery, the sector offers diversification, but isn't necessarily for the faint of heart.

There have been some notable winners over the years, but for the last decade or so most generalist investors have stayed away from mining stocks. This is despite an increasing number of commodities hitting record-high prices or coming close to record-high prices in the relatively recent past, including gold, copper and zinc.

At this year’s Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC), Jay Martin, president and CEO of Cambridge House International, convened a panel to explore where the smartest plays in the mining sector are right now.

Rob McEwen of McEwen Mining (TSX:MUX,NYSE:MUX) and Michael Meding of McEwen Copper sat down to speak about the outlook for gold and copper, as well as news from their respective companies.

When it comes to gold, he has a long-term price target of US$5,000, and although the metal is well below that level, McEwen believes it's moving in the right direction with strong reasons to buy backing it up.
