Drilling Update at Viscount’s Flint Canyon, Cherry Creek Property in Nevada

logo

VANCOUVER, Canada –- Viscount Mining Corp. (TSX-V: VML) (OTCQB: VLMGF) (“Viscount” or “the Company”), is pleased to provide an update on its flagship Cherry Creek Nevada Property (the “Property”). The Phase 1 drilling commenced at Flint Canyon in early September; and is being managed and funded by Summit Mining Exploration Inc. (“Summit”), a wholly-owned US subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation, under the Exploration-Earn In Agreement.

The 2016 Phase 4 soil sampling program was completed in late July. A total of 1,250 samples were collected, including those at closer spacing than the 75m by 75m reported in the news release of (August 10, 2016).  All were submitted to ALS Global for gold assay and multi‐element geochemical analysis. In the central Flint Canyon area, the results reported by Summit show a positive correlation of gold and arsenic to the locations of the jasperoid occurrences and with major faults and regional structures. The soil sample results and geological map data were used for guidance in the drill planning.

A reverse circulation (RC) drill plan was made based on soil anomalies, geologic mapping, and targeting of the jasperoid outcrops.  The initial drill program that was reported in the news release of (September 7, 2016) was for 18 holes from 12 drill sites for total of 14,366 feet (4,380 m).

The revised drill plan is for 34 holes from 11 sites for 24,000 feet (7,317 m). Drilling has progressed well and is continuing due to good weather, ground conditions, and short drill rig moves. Currently the program is expected to continue to the end of November.

Mark Abrams, Viscount Technical Advisory Board, stated: “Summit has conducted a very well planned and executed exploration program to date at Flint Canyon.  My initial examination of Flint Canyon drill samples shows features typically associated with a Carlin-type gold deposit, including silicification and disseminated fine grained pyrite which are present.  We look forward to the continued testing of targets on the property and the analysis of the lab results that will follow.”

About Flint Canyon

The 2015 and 2016 mapping at Flint Canyon found the faulting to be more complex than previously indicated on the Adair 1961 geologic base map. Summit’s mapping program found that east-west orientated faults and fractures, which are important ore controlling structures at the Ticup and Star Mines, also occur in the area. The Flint Canyon area contains highly dissected fault blocks of the Dunderberg Shale with the underlying Marjum Limestone and overlying Notch Peak Limestone. The Pogonip Formation overlies the Notch Peak and both units are important host rocks for Carlin-type gold mineralization in east-central Nevada.

Jasperoid occurrences in Nevada are extremely significant in context to Carlin-type gold deposits and mineralized jasperoid outcrops are common throughout the Flint Canyon area. They occur principally along the base of the Dunderberg Shale, but other outcrops are found along the Pogonip-Notch Peak contact. Many major gold discoveries have been made based on the presence of outcropping, weakly mineralized jasperoid hosted in and along bedding contacts of carbonate rocks. At Flint Canyon, jasperoid is found in the same carbonate rocks that are prolific host rocks at nearby large gold deposits (Newmont Mining-Long Canyon and Kinross Gold Corporation-Bald Mountain deposits).

The jasperoid beds, interpreted as west dipping tabular features, occur along the base of the Dunderberg Shale and within the Pogonip group limestone. Summit’s geological team indicates that the Dunderberg Shale is generally recessive and is exposed mainly along the outcropping contacts with more competent rocks. The Dunderberg appears to be moderately altered throughout its distribution, and, at Flint Canyon, it experienced widespread and significant alteration by hydrothermal fluids. The underlying Marjum Limestone is usually competent and unaltered, while the overlying Pogonip exhibits variable alteration.

Mineralization identified by this work is hosted within and extending out from silica bodies known as jasperoids formed at the Pogonip Limestone/Notch Peak Limestone contact, within the Dunderberg Shale, and within and extending out from jasperoids formed at the Dunderberg Shale/Marjum Limestone contact. Jasperoids form from silica and iron replacement of the limey component of rocks when warm springs carrying silica, iron and potentially metals such as gold circulate through the rock column. As the silica and iron rich waters percolate through the rock, the limey component of the rock dissolves, migrates away and redeposits as calcite veins (calcium carbonate) in areas outboard of the warm spring waters. The host rock, depending on its content of limey material, may form caves or even collapse as the limey component is flushed out. Collapse features have been noted in outcrop and in new road cuts in the anomaly areas of Flint Canyon. This event makes the rock more permeable and allows even more silica rich waters to flow in.  As the waters flush in they begin to deposit silica and iron as jasperoids. Gold deposition can occur as part of this process and, in fact, has at Flint Canyon.

The Cherry Creek district, including Flint Canyon, is cut by very deep seated fault structures. These faults would have provided a very good plumbing system that allowed mineralizing waters to circulate through the rock column over a large area.  In looking at the gold mineralized rock at Flint Canyon, one can see more than one event of silica, iron and likely gold introduction into the rock. Multiple events like this have been known to drive up the gold grade at other projects and may also have done so at Flint Canyon.

Millennial Signs Letter of Intent to Option its Cruz Property to Southern Lithium Corp.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Nov. 3, 2016) – Millennial Lithium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ML) (“Millennial” or the “Company”) reports that its wholly owned Argentine subsidiary, Proyecto Pastos Grandes S.A. (“PPG SA”) has entered into a letter of intent (the “LOI”) with Southern Lithium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SNL) (“Southern”) whereby, upon execution of a definitive agreement (the “Definitive Agreement”) Southern will be granted the option to acquire up to an eighty (80%) percent interest in and to the Company’s Cruz Property in the Pocitos salar basin in Salta Province, Argentina.

Terms of the LOI:

The LOI, dated effective October 31, 2016, calls for PPG SA and Southern to enter into a Definitive Agreement on or before November 10, 2016.

To earn a seventy (70%) interest in the Cruz Property, Southern must:

  1. pay a US$150,000 non-refundable deposit to PPG SA (which has been paid);
  2. pay an additional US$50,000 non-refundable deposit to PPG SA on execution of the Definitive Agreement;
  3. on closing of the Definitive Agreement, issue to PPG SA or Millennial (at Millennial’s option) US$100,000 worth of common shares (the “Southern Shares”) of Southern with the Southern Shares being valued at the same price per share as a private placement (the “Private Placement”) Southern is expected to announce concurrently or shortly after the announcement of the LOI;
  4. on closing of the first tranche of the Private Placement or November 30, 2016 (whichever is earlier) place in a joint exploration account the sum of US$500,000 (the “Exploration Funds”);
  5. make US$500,000 of exploration expenditures (the “Exploration Expenditures”) on or before October 1, 2017;
  6. pay to PPG SA the sum of US$1,000,000 on or before October 1, 2017; and
  7. pay to PPG SA the sum of US$1,000,000 on or before October 1, 2018.

((a) to (g) being, collectively, the “Option Exercise Price”).

The LOI calls for the Definitive Agreement to contain the following terms:

  1. that PPG SA is expected to act as operator on the Property until the Exploration Expenditures are made upon which time Southern may assume operating responsibility;
  2. that Southern can earn an additional ten (10%) of the Cruz Property by completing, on or before the date that is three years and six months from the date of the Definitive Agreement, a bankable commercial feasibility study of the Cruz Property; and
  3. additional terms and conditions customary to an option agreement in the resource industry including terms governing the planning of Exploration Expenditures.

The Cruz Property was acquired by PPG SA under the terms of an option agreement (the “Underlying Option Agreement “) dated effective October 11, 2016 although fully executed after that date. The Underlying Option Agreement is, for Millennial, an exempt transaction not subject to Exchange review under the Exchange’s Policy 5.3. The Underlying Option Agreement provides that the Company can acquire up to a one-hundred (100%) interest in the Cruz Property from the vendor. The Company intends to use funds from the Option Exercise Price to fund its exercise of the option under the Underlying Option Agreement.

About the Cruz Property:

The 2,500 hectare Cruz Property lies at the north end of the Pocitos salar basin in Salta Province, Argentina. The Cruz Property is at the junction of a large north-south fault system and the northwest-southeast “megastructure” along which lies the Rincon volcano, the possible source of the Rincon salar lithium brine occurrences in the Rincon salar basin immediately north of the Pocitos salar basin.

The 60 kilometre long Pocitos salar basin has been the subject of surface sampling by several groups in the past. In the 1970’s a government agency made a single shallow drill hole in the Pocitos salar basin. To the Company’s knowledge, that drilling is the only exploration drilling to date and the results of that drilling cannot be confirmed under NI 43-101 standards for exploration applicable today. A review by the Company of recent samplings in the Pocitos salar basin tend to show higher lithium concentration along the deep faults in the basin, leading to the possibility, which would have to be confirmed with further exploration, that the faults could be conduits for lithium-bearing fluids emitted by the northern volcanic center.

The LOI is conditional upon its approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.

This news release has been reviewed by Iain Scarr, VP of Development and Exploration of the Company and a qualified person as that term is defined in National Instrument 43-101.

October 3, 2016 | News Releases

TSX.V: NIM
NEWS RELEASE

VANCOUVER, B.C., October 3, 2016 – Nicola Mining Inc. (TSXV: NIM) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an Exploration and Material Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Teck Highland Valley Copper Partnership (“HVCP”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Teck Resources Limited.

Nicola Mining Inc. owns 100% of the Thule Copper Property (the “Property”) that covers 10,084 hectares along the southern end of the prolific copper-rich Guichon Batholith.  The Property is located approximately 20 kilometres south of the Highland Valley Copper mine, the largest open pit copper mine in Canada which is also located within the Guichon Batholith.

The Company will work with HVCP to conduct an exploration program on the historic stockpiles on the Property in order to gather information regarding the grade and other characteristics of the stockpiled material.   Following the exploration campaigns, HVCP will have the right to purchase stockpile material mined by the Company.  The Company will carry out the exploration and mining program, and HVCP has agreed to reimburse the Company for certain costs related to the exploration and mining programs.

If the mining program proceeds, HVCP will to pay the Company as follows for purchased material:

Copper Price (US$/lb)*

Price per Tonne of Bought Material (C$/Tonne)

< $3.50

$0.40

$3.50-$4.50

$0.60

>$4.50

$0.80

* Average LME copper price for the calendar quarter

HVCP will purchase material on a per tonne basis, as described above.  In addition, it agrees to fund the Company for certain costs associated with reclamation and re-sloping work for areas in which stockpiles have been removed.

About the Property

The historic Craigmont Mine, which is part of the Thule Copper Property, operated as an open-pit mine by Craigmont Mines Ltd. from 1961 to 1967 and as an underground sub-level cave mine from 1967 to 1982 and is located on the southern section of the Property.  The Craigmont Mine produced approximately 34,000,000 metric tonnes of ore averaging 1.28% copper from Body No. 1 and Body No. 2.  Craigmont Mine’s historic cut-off grade was 0.7% Cu.

McElhanney Consulting Services Ltd. of Vancouver BC, an ISO 9001 (2008) certified company, flew a LiDAR and air photo survey covering approximately 108 square km of the Thule property. Using the Leica ALS70 LiDAR unit, data was captured at a ground-sampling distance of four points per metre, providing a highly accurate topographic dataset. High-resolution, 20cm pixel colour orthophoto was created for selected areas of the property.  Stockpiles are estimated to be 80-90 million tonnes.

On September 7, 2016 the Company announced results from its highly successful five-hole drill exploration program which highlighted an intersection of 1.11% copper over 85.92 metres in THU-002, through the Embayment Zone, located approximately 1 km northwest of the past-producing Craigmont Mine.

Results from the drilling program support the Embayment Zone as a fault-offset, westward continuation of the skarn zone that hosts the Craigmont deposit. A follow-up drill program will be designed to determine continuity of mineralization further west along strike and at depth from THU-002.

President and CEO, Peter Espig, commented, “We are very pleased to team with HCVP on this exciting opportunity.  The approximate 88 million tonnes of Stockpiles fed by a known historic cut-off grade of 0.7% Cu could be a mutually beneficial project to both companies by providing additional cash flow through supply of attractive mill feed to HVCP.”

Nicola Mining also announces that it has engaged Mocking Jay Inc. and Gold Stock Trades for investor relations and has issued a total of 175,000 stock options.

Nicola Mining Inc. is a junior mining company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange, and is in the process of recommencing mill feed processing operations at its 100% owned state-of-the-art mill and tailings facility, located near Merritt, British Columbia. It has already signed four mill profit share agreements with high grade gold producers. The fully-permitted mill is able to process both gold and silver mill feed via gravity and floatation processes. The Company also owns 100% of Treasure Mountain, its high grade silver property, and a gravel pit, which is located adjacent to its milling operations.

Millennial Lithium Corp.: Clarification of Statement in September 26 News Release

Millennial-Lithium-logo

TSX VENTURE : ML

September 28, 2016

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Sept. 28, 2016) – Millennial Lithium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ML), (“Millennial” or the “Company”) would like to clarify certain disclosure made in its news release dated September 26, 2016. That news release stated:

“Millennial plans to apply its rapid development strategy to the Cauchari East Property. Pending government and community approvals, the Company will rapidly advance through geophysics to drilling in order to make a quick assessment of resources, and as warranted add Cauchari East as another production unit to the “pipeline” of their lithium production assets.”

First, the wording “assessment of resources” is premature. There is no geological report outlining a resource on any of the Company’s properties and they are not at an advanced exploration stage at which a resource, if any, could be delineated or calculated.

Secondly, the Company is not currently in production. Its properties are at an exploration stage and the outcome of further exploration, including any geophysics or drilling, and other factors as well as any feasibility study that may be undertaken will determine if production is feasible from any of its properties.

Thus, the Company wishes to amend its statement to more correctly read:

“Millennial plans to apply its rapid development strategy to the Cauchari East Property. Pending government and community approvals, the Company will advance through geophysics to drilling in order to make, in as short an amount of time as possible, an assessment of resource potential. As warranted, the Company plans on advancing the project through the necessary work and studies to estimate a resource and, if a resource can be proven, to determining if commercial production is feasible.”

Millennial Lithium Options Cauchari East Lithium Project in Argentina

Millennial-Lithium-logo

TSX VENTURE : ML

September 26, 2016

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Sept. 26, 2016) – Millennial Lithium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ML), (“Millennial” or the “Company“) is pleased to report it has entered into an option agreement (the “Agreement”) to acquire 100% of the Cauchari East Lithium Project (the “Project”) in Jujuy Province, Argentina from Fernando Erik Villarroel Alcocer (the “Vendor”), subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Project is strategically located within the “Lithium Triangle,” which is host to some of the world’s largest lithium resources.

Cauchari East covers an area of 2,990 hectares on the eastern side of the Cauchari-Olaroz Salar, adjacent to Orocobre’s producing Salar de Olaroz and Lithium Americas Corp.’s advanced stage Cauchari-Olaroz. The property displays geological characteristics common with the deeper, buried salar-type mineralization that has been proven for both of those projects. Gravity and magneto-telluric (MT) survey profiles to the south of the property reported in the Orocobre Technical Report, and VES survey results to the north of the property as reported by Lithium Americas both indicate that the brine-hosting aquifers extend beneath the Cauchari East Project.

Since 2009, considerable work has been completed in the Cauchari Salar by Orocobre and Lithium Americas, much of which is detailed in environmental reports and NI43-101 technical reports on the salar. In additional to the geophysics surveys, the reports disclose significant geochemical data confirming that brine resources with high lithium concentrations extend to the eastern boundaries of the basin, in the direction of the Cauchari East Project. Lithium enrichment in this area of the Cauchari basin appears to be related to the deep structure that hosts the Cerro Negro volcano and which bounds the Cauchari East property along its western limit.

Millennial plans to apply its rapid development strategy to the Cauchari East property. Pending government and communities approvals, the Company will rapidly advance through geophysics to drilling in order to make a quick assessment of resources, and as warranted add Cauchari East as another production unit to the “pipeline” of their lithium production assets.

Under the terms of the Agreement, Millennial can acquire a 100% interest in the Project, royalty and easement free, in consideration of the following payments, share issuances and work commitments:

(a) to earn a 50% interest in the Property:
(i) pay to the Optionor $250,000 upon execution of this Agreement;
(ii) issue to the Optionor $500,000 worth of Millennial common shares within ten (10) business days of the date of TSX Venture Exchange approval (the “Approval Date”) of this Agreement;
(iii) pay to the Optionor an additional $750,000 on or before the first anniversary of the Approval Date;
(iv) issue to the Optionor an additional $1,000,000 worth of Millennial common shares on or before the first anniversary of the Approval Date; and
(v) make $2,000,000 in Expenditures on or before the first anniversary of the Approval Date unless another date is agreed by the parties.
(b) to earn the remaining 50% interest in the Property, make the following additional payments, share issuances and Expenditures:
(i) pay to the Optionor $1,000,000 on or before the third anniversary date of the Approval Date;
(ii) issue to the Optionor $1,000,000 worth of Millennial common shares on or before the third anniversary date of the Approval Date; and
(iii) make an additional $2,000,000 in Expenditures on or before the third anniversary of the Approval Date.

Graham Harris, Chairman of Millennial, states “Adding Cauchari East compliments our strategy to acquire and advance multiple properties in the Lithium Triangle . Cauchari East, gives us another project that is drill ready and based on the work of Orocobre and others, provides us an excellent opportunity for early success”.
