Infill Drilling and Resampling Program
In addition to the recently reported expansion of the high-grade 500 Zone underlying the Tuvatu resource, several bonanza-grade intercepts have also been returned from the ongoing near-surface infill/definition drill program. The ~8000m infill drill program was initiated in June of 2021 with the aim of infilling areas of low data density within parts of the resource currently categorized as Inferred. To date, a total of 5,615m of diamond drilling over 30 holes have been completed, with ~30% of the proposed program remaining. Concurrently, a program of resampling of unsampled intervals from historic drill holes in has been initiated with the resampling of 12 holes completed to date (23 holes planned), representing ~50% of the planned resampling program, and thus far generating ~600 additional samples in areas where data was considered sparse. The additional data generated was generated in Lion One’s own assay laboratory in Nadi and will add significant new high-grade intercepts to the resource earmarked for early production.

Final results received to date from holes drilled as part of the infill program are for 7 holes only (TUDDH541-553). All results for holes TUDDH554-562 remain pending. Figure 3 shows some of the coarse visible gold intersected as part of the infill drilling program. Photographs shown are from drill holes for which analytical results are still pending. A complete set of results for all previously unreported drill holes which form part of the infill drill program is included as Table 1.

The Company is currently undertaking two tiers of drilling: 1) the completion of shallow resource infill drilling from surface and underground, 2) deep exploration drilling from surface and underground targeting lode extensions and additional feeders under the Tuvatu resource. With the wet season starting in Fiji, the regional drill program requiring access to remote parts of the Navilawa caldera has seen a planned interruption, and is scheduled to resume in early 2022.

Deep Feeder Zone 500 – additional update
An update of results obtained from the ongoing deep drilling of the high-grade 500 Zone feeder zone is also provided at this time. Additional results, as yet unreported, from ongoing drilling of the 500 Zone include: 17.43 g/t Au over 1.5m from downhole depth of 643.1-644.6m from hole TUDDH544-W1.

There are currently 3 drill holes targeting the 500 Zone. Results of these will be reported as they become available.

Sergio Cattalani, Lion One’s Senior Vice President Exploration, commented, “High grade mineralization continues to be defined both in the near-surface portion of the deposit, as well as in the expanding deep feeder Zone 500. The additional data generated by the infill drilling and resampling programs will greatly enhance our understanding of the geometry of the veins, and raise the level of confidence needed, ahead of Lion One’s near-term underground development at Tuvatu. Our objective remains to work toward a near-term modest production start, concomitant with an aggressive exploration program aimed at the continued expansion of deep bonanza-grade resources for the eventual scaled-up development of a larger and richer resource base.”

Drilling and Assay Processes and Procedures
The Company is utilizing its own diamond drill rig, using PQ, HQ and ultimately NQ sized drill core rods. Drill core is logged by Company geologists and then is sawn in half and sampled by Lion One staff.

Samples are analyzed at the Company’s own geochemical laboratory in Fiji, whilst pulp duplicates of all samples with results >0.5g/t Au are re-assayed, as well as sent to ALS Global Laboratories in Australia for check assay determinations. All samples for all high-grade intercepts reported here are will be sent to ALS Global Laboratories for check assays shortly. All samples are pulverized to 80% passing through 75 microns. Gold analysis is carried out using fire assay with an AA finish. Samples that have returned grades greater than 10g/t Au are then re-analyzed by gravimetric method. For certain high-grade samples for which results for duplicate assay are within 10% of the initial results, the average of duplicate runs is presented. Lion One’s laboratory can also assay for a range of 71 other elements through Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES), but currently focuses on a suite of 9 important pathfinder elements. All duplicate anomalous samples sent to ALS Townsville, Queensland, Australia are analyzed by the same methods (Au-AA26, and also Au-GRA22 where applicable). ALS also analyze for 33 pathfinder elements by HF-HNO3-HClO4 acid digestion, HCl leach and ICP-AES. (method ME-ICP61).

About Tuvatu
The Tuvatu gold deposit is located on the island of Viti Levu in the South Pacific island nation of Fiji. The mineral resource for Tuvatu as disclosed in the technical report “Tuvatu Gold Project PEA”, dated June 1, 2015, and prepared by Mining Associates Pty Ltd of Brisbane Qld, comprises 1,120,000 tonnes indicated at 8.17 g/t Au (294,000 oz. Au) and 1,300,000 tonnes inferred at 10.60 g/t Au (445,000 oz. Au) at a cut-off grade of 3 g/t Au. The technical report is available on the Lion One website at www.liononemetals.com and on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.

About Lion One Metals Limited
Lion One’s flagship asset is 100% owned, fully permitted high grade Tuvatu Alkaline Gold Project, located on the island of Viti Levu in Fiji. Lion One envisions a low-cost high-grade underground gold mining operation at Tuvatu coupled with exciting exploration upside inside its tenements covering the entire Navilawa Caldera, an underexplored yet highly prospective 7km diameter alkaline gold system. Lion One’s CEO Walter Berukoff leads an experienced team of explorers and mine builders and has owned or operated over 20 mines in 7 countries. As the founder and former CEO of Miramar Mines, Northern Orion, and La Mancha Resources, Walter is credited with building over $3 billion of value for shareholders.

Montréal, January 22, 2022St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CSE: SX) (OTCQB: SXOOF) (FSE: 85G1) announces today that it has served a statement of claims to BWA Group PLC, “BWA”, and its subsidiary, Kings of the North Corp. The claims seek damages of $277,640 for breach of contract and various other causes of action.

The Corporation is aware of the press release issued by BWA on December 31, 2021, in which BWA states that it has commenced a civil action against the Corporation in relation to the KOTN transactions. The BWA claim seeks, among other things, damages of $1,500,000 against the Corporation and its former CEO, alleging breach of contract, conspiracy and various other causes of action (the “BWA Claims”).

The Corporation believes the BWA claims are entirely without merit and frivolous. The Corporation will vigorously defend the BWA Claims and will prosecute its own claims against BWA and KOTN.

Under the circumstance, the Corporation will also undertake to divest its interest in BWA gradually.

“(…) Legal litigation is not part of St-Georges’ business model (…) the Company has mandated its lawyers to handle this file and is not expecting management to be side-tracked from the pursuit of its business goals and objectives (…) although a nuisance, the distraction that this lawsuit seeks to create, is not significant in relation to the corporation’s strategic development plan (…)” commented St-Georges’ COO, Frank Dumas.

As part of the asset sale process, a right of first refusal associated with one of the royalties being sold was exercised and the applicable royalty was sold for approximately $375,000, being the Canadian dollar equivalent of US$300,000.

Garett Macdonald, President and CEO of Maritime, commented, “This agreement realizes the value of our royalty portfolio today while also providing upside exposure through an equity position in Nomad, one the industry’s fastest growing royalty companies.”

In addition, forward-looking information is based on various assumptions including, without limitation, assumptions associated with exploration results and costs and the availability of materials and skilled labour.
