Posted in Press Release, 2022

Sudbury, Canada, February 1, 2022 – Transition Metals Corp (XTM – TSX.V) (“Transition”, the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has sold its 100% interest in the Mongowin project to McFarlane Lake Mining (“MFM”), a corporation that trades on the NEO Exchange under the symbol MFM. The property is located approximately 13 kilometres south of Espanola, Ontario and 70 kilometres southwest of Sudbury and is adjacent to MFM’s past gold producing McMillan property. The Mongowin Township property is comprised of 122 mining and three patented claims, totaling 2,605 hectares (the “Property”).

Pursuant to the purchase and sale agreement with MFM, Transition, received total consideration consisting of $145,000 cash, $500,000 worth of MFM stock and a 1.5% Net Smelter Return royalty (NSR) from any commercial production from the Property. Additionally, beginning on the fifth anniversary of the Purchase Agreement, MFM will pay Transition advanced royalty payments of $25,000 per year (in cash or common shares) to a maximum total of $250,000 (in cash or shares). Lastly, upon the commercial production of mineral products from the Property, Transition will be entitled to a one-time payment of $2,500,000.   

Transition CEO Scott McLean commented, “The Mongowin transaction with MFM is another demonstration of the success of our Project Generator business model.  Transition identified the opportunity, staked the property and confirmed the target potential. We have now been able to leverage this initial seed capital investment significantly while still preserving the upside potential through future milestone payments and a royalty. We look forward to working with McFarlane Lake Mining to advance the Property”

About Transition Metals Corp

Transition Metals Corp (XTM -TSX.V) is a Canadian-based, multi-commodity project generator that specializes in converting new exploration ideas into Canadian discoveries in Canada. The award-winning team of geoscientists has extensive exploration experience in established, emerging and historic mining camps and actively develops and tests new ideas for discovering mineralization in places that others have not looked, which often allows the company to acquire properties inexpensively. The team is rigorous in its fieldwork and combines traditional techniques with newer ones to help unearth compelling prospects and drill targets. Transition uses the project generator business model to acquire and advance multiple exploration projects simultaneously, thereby maximizing shareholder exposure to discovery and capital gain. Joint venture partners earn an interest in the projects by funding a portion of higher-risk drilling and exploration, allowing Transition to conserve capital and minimize shareholder’s equity dilution. The Company has an expanding portfolio that currently includes more than 25 gold, copper, nickel and platinum projects across Canada.

About McFarlane Lake Mining

McFarlane Lake is a Canadian gold exploration and development company focused on the acquisition and assessment of six gold properties; two east of Sudbury in a region consistently on the top gold exploration opportunities as identified by Ontario Geological Survey, an additional two straddling the Ontario – Manitoba border which are part of an executed purchase agreement and which are geologically similar to a number of significant gold deposits in Ontario. The two remaining properties under option are located in the historic Timmins area along the prolific Porcupine Destor fault, home to dozens of mines over the last century and several current producing mines. Three of the properties are past producers of gold and all six properties are near infrastructure (roads, power), significant population bases and in a geo-politically stable environment. McFarlane Lake has option agreements to acquire 100% of all six properties.
