TheNewswire – 22 November 2021 – Altus Strategies Plc (AIM:ALS) (TSXV:ALTS) (OTC:ALTUF) announces that on 21 November 2021 the Company entered into a sale and purchase agreement and other agreements with London AQSE Growth Market listed Eastinco Mining and Exploration plc (“Eastinco”) to sell the Company’s 100% owned subsidiary Aterian Resources Ltd (“Aterian”) to Eastinco (the “Transaction”). Aterian is advancing a portfolio of 15 primarily copper and silver exploration projects (“Aterian Projects”) in the Kingdom of Morocco. Eastinco is currently advancing a portfolio of tantalum exploration and development projects in the Republic of Rwanda. The Transaction remains subject to certain conditions precedent, including the admission to trading of Eastinco’s entire issued share capital to the Official List of the FCA (Standard Segment) (“Admission”) and to trading on the London Stock Exchange’s Main Market for listed securities (“LSE Standard Listing”).

 

Highlights:

  • – Altus to vend its 100% owned Morocco focused subsidiary Aterian into Eastinco

    – Altus to own up to 25% of Eastinco and an Altus appointee will join Eastinco’s board

    – Altus to receive warrants for up to an additional 10% of Eastinco

    – Altus to own 15 new royalties, including a royalty on the Musasa tantalum mine in Rwanda

    – Eastinco to transform into a pan-African strategic metals development company

    – Eastinco currently owns tantalum exploration and development projects in Rwanda

    – The Transaction remains subject to Eastinco’s Admission and LSE Standard Listing

    – Eastinco proposes to change its name to Aterian Plc on completion of the Transaction

Steven Poulton, Chief Executive of Altus, commented:

“We are delighted to announce the proposed divestment to Eastinco of our 100% owned Moroccan focused exploration subsidiary, Aterian, as part of Eastinco’s proposed LSE Standard Listing and subsequent name change to Aterian Plc. The enlarged entity will have a strong and unique portfolio of strategic metal exploration and development projects in Morocco and Rwanda.

“The Transaction will result in Altus generating a portfolio of 15 new royalties on the Aterian portfolio, of primarily copper and silver projects, as well as a royalty on the Musasa tantalum mine in Rwanda. Altus will become a material shareholder of Eastinco with up to 25% of the issued capital at Admission. Altus will also hold share purchase warrants for up to an additional 10% of Eastinco, subject to certain restrictions, retaining a significant stake in the enlarged Aterian portfolio. Altus will also receive a reimbursement of up to £250,000 in respect of certain exploration expenditures incurred by Aterian in 2021.

“The Transaction with Eastinco reflects our confidence in the Aterian Projects and is in line with our business model of making and monetising exploration discoveries in return for equity, cash and the creation of new royalty interests. We look forward to the completion of the Transaction, the successful Admission of Eastinco and to supporting the Eastinco team going forward”.

Charles Bray, Executive Chairman of Eastinco commented:

I am delighted to report on our proposed acquisition of Aterian for its significant portfolio of 15 copper, silver and base metal exploration projects strategically positioned close to existing mining projects in Morocco. Upon completion, Altus will become a strategic shareholder of Eastinco, demonstrating Altus’ confidence in the projects and providing us with an alignment of interest and the support of a well-respected industry player. Previous exploration undertaken by Altus on the Moroccan assets has highlighted the strong potential for the discovery of deposits of strategic metals, in particular, copper and silver. We believe the market fundamentals for copper are excellent, specifically linked to the anticipated growth in demand for renewable energy and the related electrification of transportation globally.

“We consider this to be the optimal time to broaden and strengthen our asset portfolio across Africa, adding to our established tantalum mining and exploration projects in Rwanda. Our working relationship with Altus will also guarantee a smooth transition to ensure exploration continues in Morocco without interruption. Our proposed LSE Standard Listing will provide us with exposure to a wider investor profile and greater liquidity in our shares and, therefore, a solid platform from which we can continue to grow. This is a key step to becoming a leading strategic metal exploration and development company in Africa.”

Conditions Precedent

Eastinco is currently listed on the AQSE Growth Market. Concurrent with the Transaction, Eastinco will apply for the admission to trading of Eastinco’s entire issued share capital to the Official List of the FCA (Standard Segment) and to trading on the London Stock Exchange’s Main Market for listed securities. Eastinco has recently completed a pre-IPO financing, raising £950,000 (before costs) via the placement of Eastinco ordinary shares (“Eastinco Shares”) and the issue of interest free Convertible Loan Notes (“CLNs“) to current and new investors. The Eastinco Shares were issued at a price of 1.5 pence each and the CLN’s will automatically convert on Admission into Eastinco Shares using a conversion price of 1.5 pence each (“Pre-IPO Price”). Eastinco . Upon completion of the Transaction, Eastinco intends to change its name to Aterian Plc (“Name Change”). Eastinco also proposes to undertake a share consolidation, effective from Admission, whereby each existing 10 Eastinco Shares will be consolidated into 1 new Eastinco Share (“Consolidation”). The Transaction, Admission, Name Change, Consolidation and other related matters remain subject to the publication of an FCA approved prospectus and the approval of the Transaction, Consolidation and other matters by Eastinco shareholders at a General Meeting which Eastinco plans to convene. The Transaction remains subject, among other matters, to the completion of the relevant documentation and Admission. Shareholders should note that there is no guarantee that the conditions will be satisfied or that the Transaction will be completed.

Reunion Gold reports new drill results at its Oko West Project in Guyana including 2.44 g/t over 46.5 m, 2.22 g/t over 57.0 m and 1.88 g/t over 41.0 m

The results confirm the continuity of the deposit and extend the know mineralization laterally, along strike and at depth into the unweathered rock.

LONGUEUIL, Quebec, Dec. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reunion Gold Corporation (TSX-V: RGD) (the “Company”) is pleased to report new significant gold intersections, including 2.44 g/t over 46.5 meters, 2.22 g/t over 57 meters and 1.88 g/t over 41.0 meters as part of its ongoing drilling program at the Oko West Project in Guyana. Hole 47 intersected the deepest mineralized interval so far, with 2.22 g/t over 57 meters at approximately 200 meters vertical depth from the surface (Table 1). These new drill results, which consistently show high grades and intersected lengths, clearly demonstrate that gold mineralization continues at depth in unweathered rock. The results also expand the gold mineralization laterally and continue to show the strong mineralization continuity along a “corridor” more than 1.2 km long. Preliminary metallurgical studies outlined below also show encouraging results with gold recoveries ranging between 78% and 98%.

The objective of the current drill campaign is to confirm the vertical and lateral continuity of gold mineralization previously identified in eight “blocks” straddling shear zones over a 3 km long strike length, within a 6 km long soil geochemical anomaly. Diamond drilling (“DD”) has been focused on testing depth extensions into the unweathered rock below 100 m (Figure 2), as well as testing for lateral extensions between the outlined blocks. The reverse circulation (“RC”) rig is testing the edges of exploration blocks and scouting previously untested targets both laterally and along strike. The Company has so far demonstrated continuous gold mineralization in a “corridor” more than 1.2 km long (see Figures 1 and 3) characterized by zones of intense deformation and hydrothermal alteration in sedimentary, granitic, and volcanic rocks. These zones contain widely disseminated gold in microfractures and metric-scale high-grade veins assaying up to several ounces per tonne.

Carlos Bertoni, Interim CEO, stated: “We are very excited by this round of drill results as they continue to demonstrate the impressive continuity of the gold mineralization outlined to date with long intercepts of good grade. The results successfully expand the known deposit both at depth into the unweathered rock, and laterally, between the previously outlined “blocks.” The deposit remains open to expansion in all directions. We have only started drill testing the southern 3 km of the soil geochemical anomalies.”

The Company restarted its drilling activities at the Oko West Project early in November, following a one-month break to finalize the interpretation of the then recent results and to properly plan the current 9,000-meter drill program, and for equipment maintenance. Assay results presented in Table 1 below shows significant intersections from a total of 1,322 meters in eight DD and 834 meters in nine RC holes, with assay results from two DD holes and ten RC holes not yet received.

The Company has now drilled a total of 6,467 meters in 53 DD holes and 7,836 meters in 91 RC holes since the beginning of the drilling program at Oko West in December 2020, with significant assay results reported in press releases on August 12, September 7, and October 7, 2021. The Company will interrupt its field activities at the Oko West Project from December 17, 2021, and restart early in January 2022 and plans to complete this current drill campaign by the end of March 2022.

Metallurgical testing

The Company completed a maiden scoping-level metallurgical test by bottle-roll cyanide leaching eight mineralized samples at the Actlabs laboratory in Georgetown, Guyana. These samples represent weathered and unweathered rocks from trench and drill hole samples in different host rocks. Positive gold recovery results were received using low cyanide (0.5 kg/t) in under 12 hours of leaching. Gold recoveries range between 78% and 98%. These preliminary encouraging results indicate that gravity concentration followed by cyanidation should improve gold recoveries. The Company is preparing a complete metallurgical testing plan for the Oko West mineralized rocks.

Drill result composites, sample collection, assaying and data management

The Company calculates drill results composites with a minimum length of 2 m, a cut-off grade of 0.3 g/t and 2 m maximum length of internal waste. Gold grades are uncapped. True widths are unknown. Complete drilling results and drill hole data are being posted on the Company’s website. Diamond drill samples consist of half of either HQ or NQ core taken continuously at regular intervals averaging 1.4 m, bagged, and labelled at the site core shed. Reverse circulation drill samples are obtained from a rotary splitter attached to a Metzke cyclone, weighed, bagged, and tagged at the drill site. Samples are shipped to the Actlabs certified laboratory in Georgetown, Guyana, respecting the best chain of custody practices. At the laboratory, samples are dried, crushed up to 80% passing 2 mm, riffle split (250 g), and pulverized to 95% passing 105 μm, including cleaner sand. 50 g of pulverized material is fire assayed by atomic absorption (AA). Initial assays with results above 3,000 ppb gold are re-assayed with a gravimetric finish. Certified reference materials and blanks are inserted at 5% of samples shipped to the laboratory. Assay data is subject to QA/QC using acQuire software and management by an independent consultant.
