JULY 23, 2021, VANCOUVER, BC – MUSK METALS CORP. (“MUSK METALS” OR THE “COMPANY”) (CSE: MUSK) (OTC: EMSKF) (FSE: 1I30) is pleased to announce that it has retained Minroc Management Limited (“Minroc”) to conduct a detailed exploration program to follow up on recent discoveries of Gold and Copper on its 100% owned Pluto properties, contiguous to and within Kenorland Minerals’ (KLD – TSX.V) “Chebistuan” project, that is currently optioned to Newmont Mining, located in the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt, Quebec, as well as the Company’s non-brokered private placement consisting of the issuance of up to 4,166,666 units (each, a “Unit”) at a price of $0.12 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $500,000 (the “Offering”).
Pluto Properties Exploration Program
Exploration will focus on the West Block of the two Pluto properties and will include sampling and detailed drone magnetics in the northern part of the property, currently not covered by geophysics, correlating with recent Gold and Copper discoveries announced by the Company on March 4, 2021. Gold and Copper mineralization from 88 samples taken out of bedrock and subangular boulders throughout mineralized regional structures returned up to 1,070 ppm Cu and 0.405 g/t Au. The Kapunapotagen Shear Zone, hosting the Opemiska Cu/Au deposits to the east and the Lac Dolomieu Cu occurrence to the west of the Pluto properties, runs through the northern boundary of both the West Block and the East Block at Pluto. Program highlights include the West Block where samples from a mineralized structure returned grades of 0.405 g/t Au in tectonized ultramafics in bedrock, nearby float from a local silicified metasediment returned 1,070 ppm Cu.
Musk Metals “Pluto Properties” Regional Context Map
Based on observations throughout the program, deformation (and its intensity) observed within the various lithologies the extrapolated thickness or the width of the deformation zone is at least 300 meters, further indicating that this is more of a regional structure. The gabbro-pyroxenite complex found near the highway may represent part of the “Ventures Sill”. This is the same structure which hosts the Opémiska Cu-Au mine in Chapais, and may also therefore be related to the much closer Dolomieu Ag-Cu mineralized occurrence, which lies about 1km east of the West Block (also close to the highway). This area, with its large amount of outcrop, observed mineralization (including both Cu and Zn sulphides) and potential structural and strike relationship to a major local deposit and is a high priority for this current field program.
Musk Metals CEO and Director, Nader Vatanchi states, “We are excited to be underway with a follow-up exploration program to further define our recent Gold and Copper mineralization discoveries. This program is designed to provide Musk Metals with more samples and sufficient data to establish targets for a drill program at our Pluto properties. Musk Metal anticipates an active period with multiple work programs in close proximity to recent significant discoveries in British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec, as well as the evaluation of additional near-term acquisitions.”
Musk Metals “Pluto Properties” claims area, Quebec
Both of the Pluto properties are made up of a series of crustal scale deformation zones and highly prospective sedimentary-volcanic rock contacts. The properties are located approximately 40km west of the Chibougamau mining camp and 15km west of the Chapais mining camp (6.5 M oz Au; 2.7 B lbs Cu of historic production). The Chibougamau camp has historically been mined and explored for Cu-Au mineralization but the recent discovery of the Nelligan deposit (IAMGOLD – Vanstar Resources) highlights the regional potential for orogenic gold mineralization which has been overlooked in the past.
The Company is also pleased to announce the Offering; a non-brokered private placement consisting of the issuance of up to 4,166,666 Units at a price of $0.12 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $500,000.
Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (each, a “Share”) to be issued as a “flow-through share” (as defined in subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) and subsection 359.1 of the Taxation Act (Quebec)), and one-half of one non-flow-through Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”), with each Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional Share (each, a “Warrant Share”) (on a non-flow-through basis) at a price of $0.14 per Warrant Share for a period of two years following the closing of the Offering.
All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and one day after closing of the Offering.
The aggregate gross proceeds from the sale of the Offering will be used for or exploration expenditures in connection with the Company’s mineral projects located in the Province of Quebec, Canada.
In connection with the private placement, the Company may pay finder’s fees in cash or securities or a combination of both, as permitted by the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
None of the securities sold in connection with the Offering will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and no such securities may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
About the Pluto Properties – Chapais-Chibougamau Mining Camp, Quebec
The Pluto properties and Kenorland’s “Chebistuan” project are made up of a series of crustal scale deformation zones and highly prospective sedimentary-volcanic rock contacts. The Pluto properties are located west of the town of Chibougamau, Quebec, which provides excellent infrastructure and an experienced local workforce for exploration and mining activities. The Pluto properties have been under-explored for base and precious metals and historic assay results returned Cu-Zn-Au-Ag values. Some historic diamond drill holes returned visible sulfide mineralization and VMS showings (Dolomieu-Sud). Recent exploration work completed at Pluto resulted in anomalous gold and base metals values in till samples and three distinct anomalous zones were outlined.
