About Hook Lake (previously North Falcon Point) Project:

Valor has the right to earn an 80% working interest in the Hook Lake Uranium Project located 60 km east of the Key Lake Uranium Mine in northern Saskatchewan. Covering 25,846 hectares, the 16 contiguous mineral claims host several prospective areas of uranium mineralization including:

  • Hook Lake / Zone S – High-grade surface outcrop with reported grades in grab samples up to 68% U3O8; a bio-geochemical survey carried out over the trenches in 2015 responded positively with along-strike anomalies 2 km to the northeast
  • Nob Hill – Fracture-controlled vein-type uranium mineralization on surface outcrop with up to 0.130% – 0.141% U3O8 in grab samples; diamond drilling intersected anomalous uranium in several drill holes with values up to 422 ppm U over 0.5 m
  • West Way – Vein type U mineralization within a NE-trending shear zone; grab samples taken from the surface showing contained variable uranium values including up to 0.475% U3O8 and drilling of the structure intersected the altered shear zone at depth, along with anomalous Cu, Ni, Co, As, V, U, & Pb
  • Grid T – Fracture-hosted secondary uranium mineralization in sheared calc-silicates and marbles in a 100 m x 20 m zone of anomalous radioactivity with grab samples having up to 800 ppm U
  • Alexander Lake Boulder Field – 30 biotite-quartz-k-feldspar pegmatite boulders NE of Alexander Lake; the best results include 360 ppm U, 1,400 ppm U and 1,600 ppm U respectively
  • Thompson Lake Boulder Field – Numerous radioactive boulders and blocks of pegmatized meta-arkose, pegmatite, and granite; the best value obtained was 738 ppm U from a granite boulder
  • NE Alexander Lake – Several calc-silicate, plagioclase-quartz granulite, quartzite, and meta-arkose boulders with up to 4,800 ppm U, 7,600 ppm Mo and 1,220 ppm Ni

The project area is in close proximity to two all-weather northern highways and grid power. Historical exploration has consisted of airborne and ground geophysics, multi-phased diamond drill campaigns, detailed geochemical sampling and surveys, and ground-based prospecting culminating in an extensive geological database for the project area.

Osisko Announces TSX Approval to Renew Normal Course Issuer Bid

MONTRÉAL, Dec. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd (OR:TSX & NYSE) (the "Corporation" or "Osisko") today announces that the Toronto…

MONTRÉAL, Dec. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd (OR:TSX & NYSE) (the “Corporation” or “Osisko“) today announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX“) has approved the Corporation’s notice of intention to make a normal course issuer bid (the “NCIB Program“). Under the terms of the NCIB Program, Osisko may acquire up to 16,530,688 of its common shares (“Common Shares“) from time to time in accordance with the normal course issuer bid procedures of the TSX.

The normal course issuer bid will be conducted through the facilities of the TSX or alternative trading systems, if eligible, and will conform to their regulations. Purchases under the normal course issuer bid will be made by means of open market transactions or such other means as a securities regulatory authority may permit, including pre-arranged crosses, exempt offers and private agreements under an issuer bid exemption order issued by a securities regulatory authority.

Repurchases under the NCIB Program may commence on December 12, 2021 and will terminate on December 11, 2022 or on such earlier date as the NCIB Program is completed. Daily purchases will be limited to 87,264 Common Shares, other than block purchase exemptions, representing 25% of the average daily trading volume of the Common Shares on the TSX for the six-month period ending November 30, 2021, being 349,057 Common Shares.

The price that the Corporation may pay for any Common Shares purchased in the open market under the NCIB Program will be the prevailing market price at the time of purchase (plus brokerage fees) and any Common Shares purchased by the Corporation will be cancelled. In the event that the Corporation purchases common shares by pre-arranged crosses, exempt offers, block purchases or private agreements, the purchase price of the common shares may be, and will be in the case of purchases by private agreements, as may be permitted by the securities regulatory authority, at a discount to the market price of the common shares at the time of the acquisition.

The board of directors of Osisko believes that the underlying value of the Corporation may not be reflected in the market price of the Common Shares from time to time and that, accordingly, the purchase of Common Shares will increase the proportionate interest in the Corporation of, and be advantageous to, all remaining shareholders of the Corporation.

As of November 30, 2021, there were 166,458,343 Common Shares issued and outstanding. The 16,530,688 Common Shares that may be repurchased under the NCIB Program represent approximately 10% of the public float of the Corporation as of November 30, 2021, being 165,306,882 Common Shares.

During the prior NCIB Program of the Corporation, which will end on December 11, 2021, the Corporation obtained approval to purchase 14,610,718 Common Shares and actually purchased 2,103,366 Common Shares at a weighted average price of approximately $14.6388 per Common Share through the facilities of the TSX.

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.

MONTREAL, Dec. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Yorbeau Resources Inc. (TSX: YRB) (the “Company” or “Yorbeau“) is pleased to announce that it has completed a fully-subscribed private placement (the “Private Placement“) by issuing 26,666,680 Class A common shares composed of (i) 13,333,340 “flow-through” Class A common shares at a price of $0.05 per share and (ii) 13,333,340 non-flow-through Class A common shares at a price of $0.04 per share for an aggregate gross proceeds of $1,200,000.60.

The Company will use the proceeds raised from the issue of the flow-through Class A common shares to incur Canadian exploration expenses on its properties and the proceeds raised from the issue of the non-flow-through Class A common shares for general corporate purposes.

Five insiders subscribed for a total of 16,772,220 Class A common shares having an aggregate subscription price of $754,749.90. As insiders of the Company participated in the Private Placement, it is deemed to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101—Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“). The Private Placement is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 (pursuant to subsections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a)) as neither the fair market value of the Class A common shares distributed to, nor the consideration received from, interested parties exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report at least 21 days prior to the closing of the Private Placement as participation of the insiders had not been confirmed at that time.

This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act“), or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of U.S. persons (as defined in Regulation S under the 1933 Act) absent such registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.

The Company paid finder fees in the aggregate amount of $19,830 with respect to a portion of the Private Placement.

Update on Exploration Team

The Company is also pleased to announce the return of Mr. Laurent Hallé to the Company as consulting geologist, member of the Ordre des géologues du Québec. Mr. Hallé obtained a BSc in geology from the University of Québec in 1982 and, through his long career in the field, brings a wealth of experience to the Company in exploration planning, property acquisition, planning and supervision of diamond drill programs, and exploration crew management. Mr. Hallé will be assuming the functions of Mr. Sylvain Lépine, Vice President, Exploration of the Company, who is departing Yorbeau to pursue other opportunities.
