BHP continuing to progress discussions with Wyloo Metals
TORONTO and MELBOURNE, Australia, Dec. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BHP Lonsdale Investments Pty Ltd (“BHP Lonsdale”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of BHP, announced today that it is progressing discussions with Wyloo Metals Pty Ltd (“Wyloo Metals”) regarding Wyloo Metals’ potential support of BHP’s C$0.75 per share offer (the “Offer”) to acquire( ) (“Noront”). To allow more time for those discussions to progress, BHP is extending the expiry of its offer from 7:00 p.m. (Toronto Time) on December 14, 2021 to 7:00 p.m. (Toronto Time) on January 14, 2022. The earliest time BHP will acquire Noront shares under its Offer will be at the new expiry time.
In conjunction with the extension of the expiry time, BHP Lonsdale and Noront also announced that they have amended the Support Agreement, dated July 26, 2021 and previously amended on October 19, 2021, between BHP Lonsdale, its subsidiary BHP Western Mining Resources International Pty Ltd (the “Offeror”) and Noront relating to Noront’s support of the Offer in order to extend the outside date in that agreement (the “Outside Date”) from December 14, 2021 to January 21, 2022. The Outside Date is relevant because, among other things, if the Offeror has not acquired shares under the Offer by the Outside Date, both Noront and the Offeror become permitted to terminate the Support Agreement.
While BHP and Wyloo Metals are considering a mutually beneficial arrangement regarding the acquisition of Noront by BHP, there is no assurance that any agreement will be reached between BHP and Wyloo Metals.
For Noront shareholders
A notice of variation, extension and change in respect of the Offer, a notice of change in respect of Noront’s directors’ circular and the amendment to the Support Agreement will be available under Noront’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on Noront’s website at www.norontresources.com.

Montréal, January 22, 2022 – ( )(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.

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – January 21, 2022) –( ) (“Maritime” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced asset sale transaction with (“Nomad”). Maritime sold a portion of its royalty portfolio in a number of Canadian exploration projects in Quebec, British Columbia and Ontario to Nomad for US$700,000, which was satisfied through the issuance of 96,818 Nomad common shares. 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.”
Maritime holds a 100% interest, directly and subject to option agreements entitling it to earn 100% ownership, in the Green Bay Property, including the former Hammerdown gold mine and the Orion gold project plus the Whisker Valley exploration project, all located in the Baie Verte Mining District near the town of King’s Point, Newfoundland and Labrador. The Hammerdown Gold Project is characterized by near-vertical, narrow mesothermal quartz veins containing gold associated with pyrite. Hammerdown was last operated by Richmont Mines between 2000-2004.
