Targa Exploration Corp. To Acquire Additional Assets In Quebec & Ontario And Create Advisory Board

04.10.2023 | 14:00 Uhr | CNW
VANCOUVER, Oct. 4, 2023 - Targa Exploration Corp. (CSE: TEX) (FRA: V6Y) (OTCQB: TRGEF) ("Targa" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding letter agreement (the "Letter Agreement") dated October 3, 2023 with 1384025 B.C. Ltd. ("Northern Lithium") and a party of vendors (the "Vendors") led by John Robins and Leo Hathaway to acquire a 100% interest in five lithium exploration projects located in Quebec and Ontario (the "Properties").


  • Targa will acquire a portfolio of lithium projects in Quebec and Ontario totalling approximately 137,000ha, bringing Targa's total portfolio of Canadian lithium projects to 412,000ha;
  • The Company is forming an advisory board consisting of industry leaders Craig Parry, John Robins, and Leo Hathaway; and
  • Andrew Rockandel is joining the Company's board as Executive Director.

With Targa's acquisition of the Properties, along with creation of an industry leading technical and strategic advisory Board, Targa is rapidly advancing towards its goal of establishing itself as Canada's leading lithium explorer.

"The exploration and development of lithium resources in Canada is the new 'Gold Rush'," stated John Robins, co-founder of Discovery Group. "I am excited to join the Targa team and believe Targa is well positioned to become the leading lithium explorer in Canada."

"This exciting acquisition will be adding a considerable package of prospective ground assembled by John and Leo to our already strong portfolio and is in line with our strategy of going after large land packages in favourable districts with key indicators of lithium pegmatite geology," commented Cameron Tymstra, President and CEO of Targa. "I am humbled by Craig, John, and Leo's decision to join our strategic advisory board as the extensive amount of experience, knowledge, and discovery success that they bring to the table will be immensely valuable to Targa going forward and will help the Company to prioritize, plan, and execute on our ongoing and future exploration programs. I'm looking forward to working with our new advisors and our new Executive Director, Mr. Rockandel, who adds decades of valuable industry experience to our board. "

Property Acquisition

Targa will be acquiring five projects from the Vendors with two located in the Province of Quebec and three located in the Province of Ontario.


  • Pegmatite Beach located in the James Bay region of Quebec consists of 97,571ha of prospective, pegmatite-bearing geology and covers a 60km trend of lake sediment lithium anomalies with many historically noted pegmatites that have not been assessed for lithium potential.
  • Harricana is located in the Northern Abitibi region of Western Quebec. The project is made up of four claim blocks totalling 26,339ha and covers a historic beryl-bearing pegmatite dyke with other beryliferous pegmatites historically noted nearby.
  • Case Lake is made up of 185 claim cells totalling approximately 3,800 hectares in size and sits on the edge of the Case Lake Batholith, which is a major igneous body that correlates to known lithium occurrences. Three historic drill holes on the project have intercepted pegmatites. The project is road accessible.
  • Detour West consists of two blocks of mineral claims totalling 255 claim cells in northeastern Ontario covering 5,300ha. Six historic drill holes on the project have intercepted pegmatites. The project is road accessible.
  • Lakeshore is also road accessible in northeastern Ontario and consists of 191 claim cells covering approximately 4,000ha. Anomalous beryllium and cesium were noted during historic gold exploration work. A 12.2m intercept of pegmatite was previously encountered and not analyzed for lithium.

Terms of Acquisition

To acquire a 100% interest in the Properties, Targa will issue a total of 7,500,001 common shares of the Company (the "Consideration Shares") to the Vendors, grant a 1% net smelter royalty on the Properties in favour of Northern Lithium and make aggregate cash payments of C$755,721.72 to the Vendors as follows:

  • $100,000 within two business days of execution of the Letter Agreement;
  • $277,860.86 within 30 days of execution of the Letter Agreement; and
  • $377,860.86 on or before December 15, 2023.

The Consideration Shares shall be subject to the following resale restrictions:

  • Four months and a day after closing, 1/3 of the Consideration Shares will become free trading;
  • Eight months after closing, an additional 1/3 of the Consideration Shares will become free trading; and
  • 12 months after closing, an additional 1/3 of the Consideration Shares will become free trading.
