Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – November 23, 2021 – Bathurst Metal Corp. (TSXV:BMV) (“Bathurst” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from 18 rock, grab samples collected from an Archean Age, Iron Formation from the TED Gold Zone of the Turner Lake Project, Nunavut, Canada, Figure # 1.

 

The TED Showing geological mapping and sampling program this summer confirmed historic sampling results and observations this summer of visible gold present within an Archean Age Iron Formation. Six of the eighteen samples assayed returned values greater than 20 g/tonne gold. A final assay result is still pending on sample number D365404 which contained an over limit assay value of greater than 100 g/tonne gold.  The area hosting these higher grade gold values has not been drill tested. All gold and silver assay results are listed in Table # 1. The TED Geochemistry Map, Figure 2 outlines the sample locations and gold assay results. Anomalous arsenic and bismuth concentrations occur with the high grade gold mineralization.

Harold Forzley, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Bathurst Metals commented “This summer’s work, although difficult to undertake due to stringent Covid-19 measures was highly successful in defining another, high grade gold zone so close to our drill ready, flag ship Turner Lake Main Zone. Company geologists are currently outlining plans for drill testing these zones next summer”.  Bathurst Metals has a strong 34,690 Ha portfolio of 100% owned properties in Nunavut employing  experienced geotechnical staff familiar with Northwestern Nunavut.”

 

Turner Lake Property

 

The Turner Lake Project area covers 7,071.97 Ha which also contains the Main and East Gold Zones and the Nickel Knob, massive sulphide mineral deposits.  The gold zones are hosted along a classic Archean Age, Iron/Magnesium Tholeiitic contact with gold mineralization occurring mainly within a crackle fractured greywacke. Visible gold is common. Discovered in the 1960’s the Main Gold Zone has only had 22 diamond drill holes test across the contact from Chevron Minerals in 1986-1989 and Northrock Resources Inc. in 2008/2009. Historical diamond drilling results include from Chevron Minerals:

 

28.00 g/tonne Au /4.75 metres

12.86 g/tonne Au/ 8.87 metres

15.20 g/tonne Au/4.00 metres

10.00 g/tonne Au /4.00 metres

 

Northrock Resources diamond drilling results included:

 

13.20 g/tonne Au/13.00 metres

22.54 g/tonne Au/12.00 metres

16.20 g/tonne Au /8.50 metres

 

* All lengths presented are core lengths.

 

The East Gold Zone is approximately 2 kilometres east of the Main Gold Zone along the same strike. Grab rock samples have returned up to 31.0 grams/tonne gold and the zone has not been drill tested.

 

The Nickel Knob Massive Sulphide Deposit is approximately 1.9 kilometres south of the Main Gold Zone and has had only limited drill testing consisting of five diamond drill holes. All holes encountered massive sulphides with the best intercept recorded being 1.81% copper, 1.64% Nickel over 14.0 metre core length.

 

Quality Assurance/Quality Control – rock samples

 

All rock samples were collected by professional geoscientists. Samples were placed in plastic sample bags with samples tags placed in each bag before being sealed. Samples were transported to the field camp site and later to the ALS sample preparation facility in Yellowknife under the supervision of a professional geoscientist. The Yellowknife sample preparation laboratory crushed, and pulverized samples then used a riffle splitter to obtain up to 85 percent of a 250 gram sample passing through 75um screen. The pulverized samples were then securely transported to their laboratory in Vancouver and analyzed using procedure ME MS41(ultra trace Aqua Regia ICP-MS) followed by an Au-OG44, ore grade gold 50gram sample analysis.

 

Company Proceeding With Second Tranche

 

Further, the Company is pleased to announce it proceeding with the closing of  the second tranche of its previously announced private placement.  The Company will issue 1,500,000 Units at a price of $0.10 per Unit for gross proceeds of $150,000.

 

Each unit consists of one (1) common share and one (1) common share purchase warrant of the Company. Each whole share purchase warrant entitles the holder, on exercise, to purchase an additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.15 per share for a period of one year from closing. Finders’ fees of 7% cash were paid on this tranche. The securities issued are subject to a four-month hold period.

Proceeds of the private placement will be used for working capital.

 

Lorne Warner, P.Geo, President of the company is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical content of this news release.

Brompton Split Banc Corp. Announces Details of Class A Share Split and Concurrent Preferred Share Private Placement

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)…

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 Preferred Share Index tracks the performance, on a market weight basis, of preferred shares listed on the TSX that meet criteria relating to minimum size, liquidity, issuer rating, and exchange listing. 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.

Certain statements contained in this document constitute forward-looking information within the meaning of Canadian securities laws. Forward-looking information may relate to matters disclosed in this document and to other matters identified in public filings relating to the fund, to the future outlook of the fund and anticipated events or results and may include statements regarding the future financial performance of the fund. In some cases, forward-looking information can be identified by terms such as “may”, “will”, “should”, “expect”, “plan”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “intend”, “estimate”, “predict”, “potential”, “continue” or other similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts. Actual results may vary from such forward-looking information. Investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are made as of the date hereof and we assume no obligation to update or revise them to reflect new events or circumstances.

The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities nor will there be any sale of such securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

VANCOUVER – TheNewswire – December 1, 2021 – MGX Minerals Inc. (“MGX” or the “Company”) (CSE:XMG) (CNSX:XMG.CN) (FKT:1MG) (OTC:MGXMF) is pleased to announce that in connection with the anticipated late filing of the Company’s audited annual financial statements (the “Financial Statements“) and management’s discussion and analysis for the financial year ended July 31, 2020, the Company has applied for, and has been granted, a temporary management cease trade order (the “MCTO“) by the British Columbia Securities Commission (the “BCSC“).

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.
