Teako Minerals Expands Project Hub in Norway

16.05.2024  |  Newsfile

Vancouver, May 16, 2024 - Teako Minerals Corp. (CSE: TMIN) (the "Company" or "Teako") is delighted to announce that it has expanded its previously announced Norwegian Project Hub (the "Hub")(see news release dated March 12, 2024) through i) the staking of one new Rare Earth Element ("REE") project, Kiste, ii) the staking of additional claims around 5 existing projects (Bjellatinden, Rosta, Husvika, Stortuva, and Svarthola), and iii) the acquisition of 18 copper, molybdenum and REE projects covering 1,571 square kilometres ("sq. km") from private Norwegian company Element29 AS (the "Vendor" or "Element29") (the "Acquisition").

Upon completion of the Acquisition, Teako's Hub will consist of fifty-three projects covering a total area of 7,282 sq. km (or 728,200 hectares) and prospective for copper, cobalt, nickel, zinc, gold, niobium, molybdenum and REE's. The acquisition further bolsters Teako's position as Norway's largest exploration company in terms of total project size.

Highlights

  • Teako bolsters its position as Norway's largest exploration company in terms of total project size by expanding its Norwegian Hub through a combination of new claim staking and the acquisition of 18 copper, molybdenum, and REE projects from Element29.
  • Teako's new claim staking includes a new REE project, Kiste, in addition to additional claims around its previously announced Bjellatinden, Rosta, Husvika, Stortuva, and Svarthola projects.
  • The total landholding in Norway now measures 7,282 sq. km (or 728,200 hectares), of which all of the fifty-three (53) projects are 100% owned by the Company.

An overview of the additions to the Hub and expansions can be seen in Figures 1,2,3,4, and Table 1.

Terms of the Transaction

Pursuant to the Acquisition, Teako will acquire the Properties for cash consideration of approximately $21,000 (NOK 167,000), which represents the Vendor's costs of staking the Properties. The Company has completed internal due diligence on the Element29 projects and is satisifed that all the mineral claims are in good standing.

Related Party Disclosure

The Vendor is a holding company controlled by Mr. Sven Gollan, the Company's Chief Executive Officer and a director of the Company. As a result, the Acquisition constitutes a "related party transaction", as such term is defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). In completing the Acquisition, the Company has relied on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements enumerated in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, respectively, as neither the fair market value of the subject matter of the Acquisition, nor the consideration paid by the Company, exceeds 25% of the Company's market capitalization.

The Strategy

The Project Hub secures the Company prospective projects on a national scale, that meet its ambitions of contributing to the development of the European supply of critical metals and maximizing the first-mover advantage in Norway. It also serves as a potential catalyst to pursue non-dilutive financing options, as we aim to bolster our exploration efforts without compromising the integrity of our core projects or the shareholder structure through either project deals, sales, or soft funding. Furthermore, the Project Hub functions as a de-risking mechanism by providing flexibility in project development within the Company.

The Company is committed to establishing strong relationships throughout Norway with municipalities, local communities, and other stakeholders.

The Company anticipates that exploration activities will be carried out by the NGU on a regional basis, which will include:

  • Regional and local-scale geophysical survey.
  • Soil and stream sediment sampling programs.
  • Geological mapping and reporting.

These activities, whether conducted in the Company's license areas or other, are expected to provide valuable insights that will assist the Company in further evaluating its projects.

The Project Hub is dedicated to a systematic identification and assessment strategy to further evaluate the projects through specifically designed fieldwork programs and desktop studies during the year 2024 and onwards. Once the projects have been evaluated, the Company will decide whether to reduce the licenses or advance the projects. The projects will be advanced either directly by the Company's in-house geological teams or together with strategic partners, through exploration and development joint ventures or option agreements. In this regard, a project could be designated a main project.

The Project Hub Overview

The Company has divided the projects into four (4) districts (Figures 1-4):

  • District Far North for copper, cobalt, and Rare Earth Elements (REE).
  • District North for copper, molybdenum, and gold.
  • District Central for copper, cobalt, and zinc.
  • District South for REE, molybdenum, and copper.
