  • Initial $545,000 Tranche of Non-Brokered Private Placement Closes
  • NI 43-101 Technical Report due for completion in January 2022

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – January 14, 2022) – Currie Rose Resources Inc. (TSXV: CUI) (“Currie” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide a corporate update on the recently announced non-brokered private placement and technical work required to complete the acquisition of the North Queensland Vanadium Project (See Press Release Dated October 27, 2021).

Vanadium Project Acquisition

Currie’s acquisition of the North Queensland Vanadium Project is progressing.

To date, Management and the Company’s technical team have:

– Completed an initial site visit;

– Undertaken a confirmatory surface sampling program;

– Completed a positive Due Diligence of the 7 tenements in the package:

– Established a wholly owned Australian subsidiary to facilitate operations in Queensland; and

– Initiated confirmation work on the historic JORC12 compliant Inferred Resource at the Cambridge Deposit (JORC 84mt @ 0.3% V2O5) to bring it into NI 43-101 compliance.

Management anticipates completion of a NI 43-101 compliant technical report to be completed in the coming weeks, thereby fulfilling a major requirement for the acquisition.

Michael Griffiths, Currie’s President and CEO, commented.

“This placement is the first step in our Vanadium journey, and I take this opportunity to thank both vendors, Chalice Mining Limited and Liontown Resources Limited, for their continued assistance and support to ensure a smooth transition of the assets to Currie.”

Non-Brokered Private Placement

Currie is pleased to announce that, subject to final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, it has closed the first tranche of a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”), issuing 10,900,000 units for total gross proceeds of $545,000. Each unit consists of one Common Share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share of the Company at a price of C$0.10 for a period of 24 months following the closing date of the Offering. Each Warrant is subject to an acceleration clause under certain conditions. The securities issued under the first closing of this Offering, are subject a hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of issue.

The Subscribers of the first tranche closing acknowledged and agreed to both: a change in the Use of Proceeds whereby the Issuer will use proceeds from this Offering for general working capital purposes and not necessarily in connection to the Acquisition; and the Closing of this tranche will NOT be contingent upon the completion of the Acquisition.

In connection with the closing, the Company will pay compensation of $17,200 and issuance of 344,000 Broker Warrants to various eligible Finders. Each Broker Warrant is exchangeable for one Common Share at a purchase price of $0.05 per share and will expire two (2) years from the closing date.

The participation by one of the directors of the Company in the Financing constitutes a “related party transaction” pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company intends to rely on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in section 5.5(b) and Section 5.7(1)(b) of MI 61-101, respectively, on the basis that no securities of the Company are listed or quoted on any of the markets specified in Section 5.5(b) of MI 61-101 and the fair market value of the securities issued to related parties pursuant to the Financing, does not exceed $2,500,000, along with the other applicable circumstances contained in section 5.7(1)(b) of MI 61-101.

M3 Metals Provides Update on the Block 103 Iron Ore Project

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 24, 2022) – M3 Metals Corp. (TSXV: MT) (FSE: X0VP) ("M3 Metals" or the "Company") is pleased to…

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 24, 2022) – M3 Metals Corp. (TSXV: MT) (FSE: X0VP) (“M3 Metals” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has completed a LiDAR and Orthophoto survey on its 100% owned Block 103 Iron Ore Project (the “Property”) in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The primary objective of the survey was to acquire a bare earth digital terrane model (DTM) and orthophoto data to aid in its continued exploration for DSO and Taconite style mineralization on the Property.

The bare earth DTM model (see Figure 1 below) digitally removed the surficial vegetation from the LiDAR (point cloud) data and resulted in a model of the ground and outcrops that is accurate to 30cm. Because the iron rich rocks on the Property occur in stratigraphic (layered) rock units, the bare earth DTM greatly enhances the property wide geological mapping and provides a new perspective on the deformation and fault structures. These structural features can be spatially related to the enrichment or formation of DSO style mineralization and can be observed by bends (or folds) and sharp offsets (faults) of the regularly occurring layered geological units.

The survey confirmed that the high-grade DSO style mineralization (including 69.75% Fe2O3 and 16.45%SiO2 over 6.1 metres in hole DDH103-064) occurs within a structurally complex area. Additional work is being planned for the 2022 field season to test extensions of the high-grade DSO style mineralized intercept encountered in hole DDH103-064 beginning at 26.82 metres depth. Due to the near surface but covered location of the mineralized unit, drilling is required to properly test its total extent. Continued analysis of the newly acquired data may also result in the identification of additional areas that share similar structural traps which could also have secondary iron enrichment sourced from the extensive iron formations on the Property.

The Company also continues to explore business opportunities including communicating with potential partners or buyer to advance the 7.2 billion tonne taconite iron ore resource at 29.2% total Fe (see news release dated Feb 4, 2013).

DSO is currently being mined by Tata Steel Minerals Canada (“TSMC”) in multiple areas surrounding the Property which is being processed (or beneficiated) at TSMC’s DSO facility located 6 kilometres from the Block 103 property. Once beneficiated, the product is loaded on rail at site and sent to a port in Sept-Îles for shipping to consumers worldwide. TSMC is processing iron ore material with greater than 50% total Fe and less than 18% SiO2 as a cut-off for the material at their facility. The Company believes there is potential to identify DSO style mineralization on the Property suitable for processing at TSMC adjacent and currently operating facility.

Block 103 is located near well-established infrastructure in the heart of the Labrador Trough, Newfoundland and Labrador, approximately 30 km northwest from the town of Schefferville, Quebec and 1,200 kilometres by air northeast of Montréal, QC. Previous work by the Company includes geological mapping, geophysical surveys and diamond drilling programs. Total drilling now stands at 115 drill holes aggregating over 28,000 metres. Two zones of mineralization have been defined on the Property; namely the Northwest Zone and the Greenbush Zone where the focus of the mineral resource estimate has been on the Greenbush Zone.


Adrian Smith, P.Geo., is a QP as defined by National Instrument 43-101 for the above-mentioned project. The QP is a member in good standing of the Professional Engineers and Geoscientists Newfoundland and Labrador (PEG) and is a registered Professional Geoscientist (P.Geo.). Mr. Smith has reviewed and approved the technical information disclosed above.

Benchmark Drills 49.10 Metres of 2.36 G/t Gold Equivalent at the Dukes Ridge Deposit and Extends Mineralization from Surface to 220 Metres Depth

Edmonton, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – January 24, 2022) – Benchmark Metals Inc. (TSXV: BNCH) (OTCQX: BNCHF) (WKN: A2JM2X) (the "Company" or "Benchmark")…

Edmonton, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – January 24, 2022) – Benchmark Metals Inc. (TSXV: BNCH) (OTCQX: BNCHF) (WKN: A2JM2X) (the “Company” or “Benchmark“) is pleased to announce new results from 27 infill and expansion drill holes at the Dukes Ridge Deposit, including 49.10 metres (m) core length of 1.86 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 39.96 g/t silver or 2.36 g/t gold equivalent (AuEq)* with 3.84 m of 12.50 g/t gold and 240.16 g/t silver or 15.50 g/t AuEq in drill hole 21DRDD005 (Figure 1). These new drill results have the potential to positively impact the updated Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) scheduled for completion during the first half of 2022. Drilling has also extended mineralization, which remains open, below the 2021 modelled pit shell to a depth of over 220 vertical metres (Figure 2), with additional drilling planned to test the along-strike expansion potential of the mineralizing system. Benchmark’s flagship Lawyers Gold-Silver Project is located within a road-accessible region of the prolific Golden Horseshoe area of north-central British Columbia, Canada.

John Williamson, CEO, commented, “The Dukes Ridge area is providing significant expansion potential from the recent drill program. The area remains open in all directions with infill drilling replacing gaps in the Mineral Resource at surface with higher-grade gold and silver material. January 2022 drilling has started at Dukes with two drill rigs focused on proving-up more mineralization at surface and expending gold-silver areas beyond 220 metres vertical depth.”


  • High-grade near surface intercepts potentially contributing to higher-grade starter pits and significant rewards to future mine production schedules and project economics, and;
  • Increasingly robust mineralization within the northwest portion of the Dukes Ridge deposit, marginal to the Connector Zone, including near-surface 31.50 m core length of 1.45 g/t gold and 13.65 g/t silver or 1.62 g/t AuEq with 3.05 m of 11.17 g/t gold and 67.27 g/t silver or 12.01 g/t AuEq in drill hole 21DRDD001 (Figure 1), and;
  • Extension of mineralization beyond the 2021 modelled pit shell including 64.48 m core length of 0.70 g/t gold and 29.02 g/t silver or 1.06 g/t AuEq with 3.00 m of 4.88 g/t gold and 270.79 g/t silver or 8.26 g/t AuEq in drill hole 21DRDD003 (Figure 2).

Dukes Ridge Deposit Resource

The 2021 Mineral Resource Estimate (May 14, 2021) at the Dukes Ridge Deposit established 109,000 ounces AuEq at 1.29 g/t AuEq Indicated. The Company anticipates new drilling will positively impact expansion and grade to the Dukes area. The January 2022 drill program has started at the Dukes area with a focus on shallow drilling and areas with higher grade gold-silver mineralization.

The Dukes Ridge Deposit forms part of a global Mineral Resource Estimate from 3 separate but nearby deposits that delivered 2.1 million ounces of 1.62 g/t AuEq Indicated and 821,000 ounces of 1.57 g/t AuEq Inferred for its initial Mineral Resource Estimate. All Resource areas are open to expansion from recent drilling and will see the addition of gold-silver from new zones that include the Connector and Mid-Cliff Creek zones.
