Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 10, 2021) – Kuya Silver Corporation (CSE: KUYA) (OTCQB: KUYAF) (FSE: 6MR1) (the “Company” or “Kuya“) is pleased to announce that it has commenced a 2,000+ m drill program at the Silver Kings Joint Venture (“Silver Kings JV“), which is part of the Company’s larger Silver Kings Project, located in the historical Cobalt silver mining camp in Northeastern Ontario. This drill program is designed to test for high-grade silver-cobalt veins at depth based on 2021 field mapping and portable XRF (pXRF) analyses, soil sampling, and LiDAR lineament analysis, taking into consideration historical work and data. The drilling is fully permitted and is being planned to intercept target structures, along plunge of mineralization, within 100 vertical meters of the Nipissing Diabase contacts in the historically named Productive Zone. Kuya has an option to acquire a 70% interest in the holdings of Electra Battery Materials Corporation (“Electra“, formerly known as First Cobalt Corp.) in the joint venture area, as previously announced (see Kuya press releases dated March 1, 2021, and September 2, 2021).

Drill targets for this program are focused primarily on the newly identified Oxbow area, associated with the historic Silver Centre mining camp. The Oxbow area is a relatively untested zone that is interpreted by Kuya to be the southern continuation of the mineralizing system from the mines at Silver Centre area, which produced more than 23 million ounces of silver from several historic mines including Keeley and Frontier between 1908 and 1965 (see Figure 1).

David Lewis, Exploration Director, commented, “The major controls on silver-cobalt mineralization in the Cobalt and Silver Centre mining camps are 1) proximity to the upper and lower contacts of the Nipissing Diabase sill, in particular near flexures or folds in the sill, and 2) proximity to major structures, especially faults. At Silver Centre, the majority of mining and exploration was focused above the diabase; in contrast, in the main Cobalt mining camp to the north, including at Kuya’s 100%-owned Kerr Project, the bulk of economic mining was from below the diabase. We see a major opportunity to test below the diabase contacts near Silver Centre in this drill program.”

Mr. Lewis continued, “Our drill targets in this program are based on a combination of geological mapping, geochemistry, and geophysics, supported by limited historical drilling results. We are especially excited by the Oxbow area, where an untested major fold in the diabase appears to be cut by the same branching fault systems that hosts the significant mineralization from the Silver Centre veins (see Figure 1), and where we have the potential for a major new buried silver discovery.”

David Stein, President and CEO, remarked, “Based on Kuya’s work on the joint venture to date, we have identified the Oxbow target area as a priority for the potential discovery of multiple or clusters of high-grade silver veins. Our target is the potential for buried mineralization that was missed during the previous mining campaigns over the past 120 years.”

The Silver Centre mining camp produced approximately 23 million ounces of silver from four major mines: the Keeley (12.1 Moz Ag), Frontier (7.0 Moz Ag), Wettlauffer (2.6 Moz Ag), and Ramardo (also known as Trout-Lorrain; 1.1 Moz Ag) mines, as well as the smaller Forneri, Harris, Curry and Bellellen mines. The production was largely from branching, mineralized faults that overlie an arched Nipissing Diabase sill, within a 100 m vertical envelope (historically referred to as the Productive Zone) which is located above, and extends slightly into, the diabase contact. Limited mining below the diabase at the Keeley Mine (400,000 oz Ag or about 3.3% of historical production) shows both that there is further potential for mineralization and suggests a second, essentially untested, Productive Zone beneath the diabase.

Oxbow Area

The Oxbow area is located 3 km south of the Silver Centre area, where a pronounced arch or fold in the Nipissing Diabase is cut by faults. These faults include the north-trending Tooth Lake Fault, which continues north towards Silver Centre and branches to host the Keeley-Frontier, Ramardo and Wettlauffer mines, and a newly recognized northeast-trending fault that is parallel to the mineralized Wettlauffer structure. Limited historical drilling on the Silver Kings JV property near Oxbow has focused above the diabase and encountered minor but significant silver-cobalt interceptions (up to 1.8 oz/ton silver [Hole 65-3, Tower Silver Mines Ltd., 1965] and descriptions of up to 5/8″ massive cobalt-bearing veins with low-grade cobalt haloes up to 7’6″ along core [Hole 53-7, Ox-bow Silver Mines, Ltd., 1953], intercepted above the interpreted Productive Zone, with no known drilling beneath the diabase.

Work by Kuya’s crews (see Figure 2) recognized the presence of both north and northeast trending faults adjacent to, and cutting, the arched Nipissing Diabase sill near Oxbow Lake. A 335 sample (plus QA/QC samples) B-horizon soils grid across the area demonstrated that elements linked to the silver-cobalt-arsenide veins of interest are locally elevated from 5:1 up to 60:1 relative to median background values and form elongate, overlapping clusters near faults and fold hinges. Portable XRF analyses on unmineralized rock relative to suspected mineralized fault planes yielded similar ratios compared to background values. A structural analysis of the area suggested that the lower diabase contact may be the better exploration target and drill holes have been planned to target these areas at depth.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

Soil samples were collected by hand auger, sealed in marked sample bags and dried prior to analysis. Blanks, duplicates and certified standards were regularly inserted as part of an industry-standard QA/QC protocol. Samples were delivered to ALS Laboratories in Sudbury, Ontario, where they were processed and assayed. Samples were dried (if required), fully dissolved by 4-acid digest, and assayed by ICP-MS.

Portable XRF analyses were done using a handheld Nitron XL3t, which was professionally serviced and calibrated in 2021. Field calibration of the portable XRF is done daily and on a regular basis during use using reference standard RCRApp.

Not for distribution to U.S. newswire services or for dissemination in the United States.

TORONTO, Dec. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — (TSX: SBC, SBC.PR.A) Brompton Split Banc Corp. (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the details of the previously announced split of its class A shares (the “Share Split”) and provide an update on the concurrent private placement of preferred shares (the “Private Placement”). The Share Split and the Private Placement remain subject to the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”).

The Company is pleased to announce that class A shareholders of record at the close of business on December 14, 2021 will receive 25 additional class A shares for every 100 class A shares held, pursuant to the Share Split. Following the Share Split, class A shareholders will continue to receive the currently targeted monthly distribution of $0.10 per class A share. As a result, the Share Split will result in an overall increase in the dollar amount of distributions to be paid to class A shareholders by approximately 25%. The Company provides a distribution reinvestment plan, on a commission-free basis for class A shareholders that wish to reinvest distributions and realize the benefits of compound growth.

Pursuant to the Private Placement, 3,164,203 preferred shares were offered to investors at a price of $10.10 per preferred share such that following the Share Split there will be an equal number of class A shares and preferred shares outstanding. The Private Placement is scheduled to close on December 14, 2021. Following the completion of the Share Split and the Private Placement, the preferred shares are expected to have downside protection from a decline in the value of the Company’s portfolio of approximately 57%.(1)

Over the last 10 years, the class A shares have delivered a 17.8% per annum total return based on NAV, outperforming the S&P/TSX Capped Financials Index by 5.1% per annum and the S&P/TSX Composite Index by 9.0% per annum.(2) Since inception, class A shareholders have received cash distributions of $18.75 per class A share.

The preferred shares have delivered a 4.9% per annum total return over the last 10 years based on NAV, outperforming the S&P/TSX Preferred Share Index by 1.5% per annum with lower volatility.(2)   

The Company invests, on an approximately equal weighted basis, in a portfolio (the “Portfolio”) consisting of common shares of the six largest Canadian banks (currently, Royal Bank of Canada, The Bank of Nova Scotia, National Bank of Canada, The Toronto-Dominion Bank, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and Bank of Montreal). In addition, the Company may hold up to 10% of the total assets of the Portfolio in investments in global financial companies for the purposes of enhanced diversification and return potential.

Returns are for the periods ended October 31, 2021 and are unaudited. Inception date November 15, 2005. The table shows the Company’s compound return on a class A share and preferred share for each period indicated, compared with the S&P/TSX Capped Financials Index (“Financials Index”), the S&P/TSX Composite Index (“Composite Index”), and the S&P/TSX Preferred Share Index (“Preferred Share Index”) (together the “Indices”). The Financials Index is derived from the Composite Index based on the financials sector of the Global Industry Classification Standard. The Composite Index tracks the performance, on a market weight basis, of a broad index of large-capitalization issuers listed on the TSX.

The class A shares and preferred shares are not expected to mirror the performance of the Indices which have more diversified portfolios. The Indices are calculated without the deduction of management fees, fund expenses and trading commissions, whereas the performance of the Company is calculated after deducting such fees and expenses. Further, the performance of the Company’s class A shares is impacted by the leverage provided by the Company’s preferred shares.

You will usually pay brokerage fees to your dealer if you purchase or sell shares of the investment funds on the TSX or other alternative Canadian trading system (an “exchange”). If the shares are purchased or sold on an exchange, investors may pay more than the current net asset value when buying shares of the investment fund and may receive less than the current net asset value when selling them.

There are ongoing fees and expenses associated with owning shares of an investment fund. An investment fund must prepare disclosure documents that contain key information about the fund. You can find more detailed information about the fund in the public filings available at www.sedar.com. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in share value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account certain fees such as redemption costs or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns. Investment funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.

The Company applied for the MCTO in order to secure additional time to finalize the Financial Statements. As a result of recent changes to the Company’s board of directors, the Company anticipates a longer than anticipated timeframe for the audit of the Financial Statements. However, it is the Company’s reasonable expectation that the audit of the Financial Statements will be completed by December 27th, 2021.

By way of background and as required by the BCSC, please note the following:

1. The Company is required to file its July 31, 2020 audited annual financial statements, management’s discussion and analysis and the applicable CEO and CFO certifications in respect of such filings (collectively, the “Annual Filings“) all in accordance with IFRS, by November 29, 2020 (the “Filing Deadline“), as required pursuant to National Instrument 51-102 Continuous Disclosure Obligations. The Company does not anticipate that it will be able to complete its Annual Filings on or before the Filing Deadline.

2. The Company and its auditors are working diligently to prepare and file the Annual Filings on or before December 27th, 2021.

3. The Company confirms that it intends to issue a status report on a bi-weekly basis, for as long as it remains in default of the Filing Deadline in respect of the Annual Filings.

 

4. There is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed.

During the MCTO, the general investing public will continue to be able to trade in the Company’s listed common shares. However, for the duration of the MCTO, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer will not be able to trade the Company’s common shares.

The Company has imposed an insider trading blackout pending the filing of the Annual Filings. If the MCTO is granted, the Company will comply with the alternative information guidelines described in National Policy 12-203 Management Cease Trade Orders for so long as it remains in default due to the late filing of the Annual Filings.

Corporate Update

The Board of Directors has removed Lyndon Patrick effective November 30, 2021 for non performance having missed three or more consecutive Director Meetings and reduced the number of Directors to three, in accordance with Company By-laws. A search has begun for a new Director.  The current Directors of the Company are Andris Kikuaka and Jared Lazerson.
