16.04.2024 | 13:30 Uhr | The Newswire

Toronto, April 16, 2024 - Metalite Resources Inc. (CSE:METL) (OTC:JNCCF) (Frankfurt:5VHA) ("Metalite" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Osprey Advanced Materials Inc. ("Osprey"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cachee Gold Mines Corp. ("Cachee") entered into contract mining agreement dated April 7, 2024 ("CMA") with Ferromin Inc. ("Ferromin") on Osprey's advanced stage critical metals project located in Flett and Angus townships, Ontario ("Titan Project").

David Melling, Interim CEO and Director of Metalite commented: "We are very pleased to announce this key milestone, as we continue to move towards closing the deal with Osprey. A partnership with a reputable industry-leading company such as Ferromin is a testament to the high-quality of the Titan Project. This partnership provides third-party validation of the Titan Project potential, and we look forward to Ferromin commencing contract mining of the high-quality aggregates at the Titan Project."

About Ferromin and the CMA

Ferromin is a leading supplier high-density aggregates in Eastern Canada specializing in high-weight concrete and loose ballast. Ferromin's aggregates have been used successfully in cancer treatment facilities, medical research reactors, nuclear reactors and spent fuel canister production. Its proprietary products are produced from a high-quality source of a natural iron oxide called magnetite. Having access to reliable supplies of magnetite, ilmenite and hematite allows Ferromin to produce aggregates in a range of densities, while maintaining concrete gradation specifications.

In connection with the CMA, Ferromin completed an access upgrade of the bush trail that connects a local road to the Titan Project. The access upgrade allowed Ferromin access to the Titan Project site to allow Ferromin complete a series of tests to validate the quality of the material that is hosted by the Titan Project. As a part of its tests, Ferromin extracted a sample of the bedrock material from the patented claims, where over 10,000 m of diamond drilling took place in 2004 and 2006 by a previous owner of the Titan Project. This sample will allow Ferromin to complete the required long-term tests ahead of commencing contract mining operations of the aggregate materials at the Titan Project. Pursuant to the CMA, upon commencement of contract mining operations, Ferromin intends to mine an agreed-upon quantity of aggregate materials to service the needs of their clients that require a supply of high-density concrete. The CMA also provides certain royalty provisions that will be payable to Osprey by Ferromin upon commencement of contract mining operations. The CMA is non-exclusive arrangement for the term of ten (10) years and includes certain renewal provisions.

Pursuant to the provisions of the CMA, Osprey and its representatives may use the access trail to the Titan Project, which will allow Osprey to conduct its exploration program pursuant to the exploration permits that it has received on February 27, 2024 from the Ontario Ministry of Mines for a period of 3 years. The CMA also provides that Osprey will have access to a part of the material removed from the Titan Project that it intends to use for its own purposes, including conducting metallurgical processing tests to confirm the metal recoveries percentages from the ore extracted from the Titan Project.

LOI Extension

By mutual agreement, Cachee and Metalite have extended the term of the LOI and the deadline for the completion of the financing by Metalite to May 31, 2024. It is expected that the definitive agreement will be entered prior to May 31, 2024. All other terms and conditions of the LOI (as further described in Metalite press release dated January 19, 2024) remain unchanged.
