Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – January 19, 2023) – TRU Precious Metals Corp. (TSXV: TRU) (OTCQB: TRUIF) (“TRU” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of 14 mineral claims at its Golden Rose Project (“Golden Rose”) in Central Newfoundland. These new mineral claims are located along the same trend as the Company’s Mark’s Pond target, which recently returned high-grade gold (“Au”) channel sampling results including 57.6 g/t Au over 2.5 m, 34 g/t Au over 2 m & 23.5 g/t Au over 2 m (refer to TRU news release dated January 12, 2023).
The Company has completed an asset purchase (the “Acquisition”) of two mineral licenses, comprising an aggregate of 14 mineral claims (the “Acquired Claims”) on 3.5 km2 of land contiguous to Golden Rose, from two arm’s length vendors (the “Vendors”) (Figure 1). Transfer of the Acquired Claims into the Company’s name is currently being completed by the governmental mining recorder. The Company had previously engaged one of the Vendors, Stephen Stockley Agriculture and Fabrication Inc. (SSAF Exploration), for exploration work.
Joel Freudman, TRU’s Co-Founder and CEO commented, “We’re pleased to begin 2023 by locking up these claims. On January 12th, we reported high-grade gold channel sampling results from our Mark’s Pond trench. Those strong gold assays, combined with the results of our bedrock grab sampling at the Rich House target, which returned gold values as high as 16.8 g/t Au, were the impetus for this Acquisition. We believe that our recent high-grade discovery at Mark’s Pond could be part of a 4-kilometre structural corridor up to the Rich House target, near the Acquired Claims. As we plan our 2023 exploration programs, the Mark’s Pond and Rich House targets will be among our top priorities for further exploration and drilling. As such, the Acquired Claims are an exciting tuck-in acquisition for us, and we look forward to expanding on our recent discovery.”

As consideration for the Acquisition, the Vendors were paid $16,000 cash and were granted a 1% Net Smelter Returns Royalty in respect of the Acquired Claims, which royalty can be fully repurchased for $1,000,000. In addition, in the event TRU delineates a Measured and/or Indicated Mineral Resource Estimate, completed in accordance with CIM and NI 43-101 standards and guidelines, equal to at least 1,000,000 ounces of gold (at a 1 g/t cut-off grade) contained within the Acquired Claims, TRU shall make an additional one-time cash payment of $250,000 to the Vendors.
