2022-08-30 05:05:02

VANCOUVER, BC, Aug. 30, 2022 /CNW/ – TinOne Resources Inc. (TSX-V: TORC) (OTCQB: TORCF) (“TinOne” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a definitive purchase agreement (the “Definitive Agreement”) whereby TinOne will acquire a 100% undivided interest in the Rattler Range tin project (“Rattler Range“) in northeastern Tasmania, Australia.

We are extremely excited to add the Rattler Range tin project to the TinOne portfolio and increase our land holdings in the well-endowed Northeast Tasmania tin province,” stated Chris Donaldson, TinOne’s Executive Chairman. “Rattler Range underpins our key strategy of acquiring known historical tin districts and applying modern exploration techniques to unlock value.”  

Rattle Range Highlights:

The Rattler Range project, consisting of a 32km2 exploration license (EL10/2019), is a highly prospective tin project in northeastern Tasmania, Australia and located only 64km from the city of Launceston. Historical records1 indicate the presence of 47 individual named tin occurrences across a 12km long, northwesterly oriented mineralized trend that has seen very little on-ground exploration since the 1980s. The district contains hard rock greisen and vein mineralization in a cupola zone of highly fractionated, evolved granite.

High priority initial targets include Bells Hill where multiple mineralized lodes, 1.5 to 6 metres wide, occur over an area of at least 500m of strike length. No systematic exploration has been conducted and only 2 drill holes have been completed at the prospect. Other priority targets include the multi-kilometer scale tin-bearing alteration zones at Ruby Flats, Walsh’s, Mammoth and Mt Paris.

The Company’s geological team will mobilize to the field in coming weeks to undertake initial reconnaissance mapping and rock sampling to define priorities for detailed follow up. It is anticipated that these programs will define quality targets for drilling in future campaigns.

Acquisition Terms

Pursuant to the Definitive Agreement, TinOne will acquire a 100% undivided interest in the Rattler Range tin project in consideration for the issuance of C$100,000 of common shares in the capital of the Company (the “Consideration Shares“). The deemed value of the Consideration Shares shall be the greater of (i) the

15-day volume weighted average price of the Company’s common shares on TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“) on the day prior to the closing date, and (ii) $0.10, being the closing price of the Company’s common shares on the TSXV on Aug 29, 2022.

Additionally, TinOne has agreed to grant the Rattler Range vendor a 2% net smelter returns royalty over the project (the “NSR“). TinOne will have the right, at any time upon notice being given to the NSR holder, to repurchase 1/2 of the NSR for C$1,000,000 in cash.

The acquisition of Rattler Range is subject to satisfaction of certain closing conditions including, among other things, the approval of the TSXV. All securities issued in connection with the Definitive Agreement are subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of issuance. It is anticipated that the acquisition will close in September, 2022.
