CKR Carbon Updates Results of Ongoing Exploration at Aukam

CKR Carbon Corporation. (TSXV: CKR) (FSE: CB81) (“CKR” or the “Company”) a graphite development company and operator of the Aukam vein graphite project in Namibia, is pleased to announce results of ongoing exploration at Aukam. Exploration during 2017 has primarily focused on underground diamond drilling to expand the known graphite mineralization in historic workings. Additionally, reconnaissance exploration is underway to map additional graphite mineralization distant from the mine site.

After rehabilitating the lower adit, CKR launched an underground drilling program to test for continuation of graphite mineralization along strike and down dip of known graphite in the old workings. To date CKR has completed 28 diamond drill holes with a total length of 630 metres with individual holes varying in length from 3 metres to 45 metres. Of the 28 holes, 16 intersected vein and/or disseminated graphite and four were abandoned in old workings. Logging, core cutting and sampling are ongoing. Chip channel samples from three exposed graphite veins in the underground workings assayed 18.34% Cg over 0.9 metres (0.85m true width), 41.98% Cg over 0.84 metres (0.83m true width) and 56.06% Cg over 1 metre (true width unknown) from the south wall of a stope (see News Release dated July 12, 2016).

Prospecting in the area around the electromagnetic anomaly to the east of the mine workings has resulted in the identification of disseminated graphite at surface on the down dip (southern) side of the anomaly in the inferred hanging-wall. The anomaly stretches over 700 metres east-west and remains open in both directions (see News Release dated January 18th, 2017). It is coincident with the upper surface of a shear zone. Together with previously identified mineralization, surface graphite has now been found over 566 metres east-west, sub-parallel to the electromagnetic anomaly with a north-south width of up to 190 metres. Further investigation is required to delineate the extent of the graphite mineralization in this area.

Mission Ready Announces Updated Details in Relation to up to 1.5M Convertible Debenture Financing

Mission Ready Services Inc. (“Mission Ready” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE: MRS) announces that further to its News Release of April 5, 2017 that it has reached an amended agreement with First Republic Capital Corporation (the “Agent“) to act as agent in relation to a brokered private placement whereby the Company proposes to raise on a up to $1,500,000 through the issuance of secured convertible debentures of the Company (the “Offering“). Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or before May 1, 2017 and is expected to close in more than one tranche.

Under the terms of the amended agreement each Debenture is convertible at the option of the holder, in whole or in part, into units consisting of one common share and one share purchase warrant at a price of $0.10 (the “Conversion Price“) per unit at any time before 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the date that is twelve months following the closing of the Offering, or each tranche thereof. Each Debenture matures twelve months from the date of issuance (the “Maturity Date”) and contains a clause entitling the holder at its option to extend the Maturity Date of the debenture for a further 12 months on terms acceptable to the TSX-V at the time of the extension. The Debentures bear interest at a rate of 15% per annum, accrued and payable in on the Maturity Date or where the whole or any part of the Debenture is converted, on the date of conversion in proportion to amount of the Debenture converted on such date. The Debenture is subject to a default clause whereby if the Company issues shares for at a price per share less than the Conversion Price during the term of the Debenture this will be treated as a default and all amounts due under the Debenture will become payable where the Company does not cure such default within a 30 day period after receiving notice of such default from the holder.

Each share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant“) that is issued as a result of any conversion is exercisable by the holder to acquire one common share of the Corporation for a period of thirty-six (36) months from the date of conversion at an exercise price of $0.15 per warrant share.

Were the Debentures to be fully converted into common shares of the Company this would result in the issuance of up to 15,000,000 common shares and 15,000,000 Warrants each exercisable into one common share.

The cells cover the Kelly Lake copper, nickel, platinum, palladium, and cobalt zone. Work by previous companies and compiled for Loubel Exploration Inc. reports a historical Indicated Mineral Resources of 1,400,000 tonnes grading 0.7% Ni and 0.7% Cu with potential Pt and Pd grades of 0.7 g/t and 0.6 g/t respectively to a depth of 335 metres and open to depth.

Sunvest Discovers New Gold Zone on Mckinnon-Hawkins Property

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)Sunvest Minerals Corp. (TSX-V: SSS) (“Sunvest Minerals” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce an update on the drilling program on the Mckinnon-Hawkins gold projects located in Hawkins and Walls townships, Ontario. To date thirteen (13) drill holes have been completed, comprising 1,624. 4 meters. Drilling has been paused for spring break-up and is expected to resume in May. To date, complete results have only been received for four (4) holes with assays pending on the remaining nine holes.

Most significantly, a new zone has been intersected in two holes located in the Hanging Wall to the north of the Main Zone. The McKinnon-Hawkins project Main Zone has a National Instrument 43-101 resource estimate of 239,100 ounces of gold (4,957,000 tonnes at 1.50 grams per tonne gold (g/t Au), at a cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t Au).

The new zone, designated as the “Taylor Extension”, located 70 to 90 meters north of the Main Zone, appears to parallel the approximately east-west strike of the Main Zone, and is open along strike, and at depth. The Taylor Extension represents a broad new mineralized environment and if as continuous as the Main Zone, has potential to add significant resources for the project.

Manganese X Energy Metallurgical Update and Potential Metallurgical Project Collaboration with the National Research Council Canada

Montreal, Quebec–(Newsfile Corp. – April 11, 2017) – Manganese X Energy Corp. (the “Company“) (TSXV: MN) (FSE: 9SC2) (OTC Pink: SNCGF) has received preliminary results from SGS-Lakefield of chemical analyses, mineralogical characterizations and assessments of the Company’s Sharpe Farm and Moody Hill occurrences at its manganese property near Houlton-Woodstock, New Brunswick. Based on the initial drill assay results, chemical analyses showed manganese contents of 9.42 and 10.45% Mn in the Red and Grey composites respectively. From the X-ray diffraction and Qemscan (Quantitative Evaluation of Materials by Scanning Electron Microscopy) studies it was determined that the manganese occurs in several mineralogical forms including carbonates and silicates where the concentration across the various manganese-bearing species averaged 23% Mn (grey) and 27% Mn (red) with individual values of up to 45% Mn. In addition to the determination of the mineralogical composition of the samples submitted, PMA or particle map analysis was also carried out which permits measurement of individual mineral grain sizes and liberation characteristics. This information will prove invaluable as the Company moves towards assessing proposals from various research establishments with the goal of upgrading the ore to produce a marketable manganese concentrate.

In addition to a series of outreach proposals to commercial laboratories, the Company has also commenced discussions for a potential collaboration with NRC, the National Research Council Canada, which has expertise in mineral processing within the Energy, Mining and Environment sector and could offer assistance to the Company as it positions itself to be a significant supplier to the North American Li-ion market.
