Zach Flood, President and CEO of Kenorland Minerals, states, "We're very excited to grow our already expansive exploration footprint in Western Ontario. We're currently planning large-scale systematic geochemical and prospecting surveys across all of our projects in the region for the upcoming summer field season. This approach is in-line with Kenorland's broader exploration strategy of pursuing new discoveries in areas we believe are under-explored."

Pursuant to the Agreements, the Company is granted the option to acquire a 100% interest in the Optioned Projects by making a series of cash payments and issuances of common shares of the Company ("Shares") over a 3-year and 4-year period as follows:

The Shares will also be subject to a four-month and one day resale restriction from the date of their issuance. The Agreements and the issuance of the Shares thereunder are subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

About the Optioned Projects

The consolidated land package encompasses approximately 40km strike length of the Mosher Bay-Washeibemaga Deformation Zone (MBWDZ), a major, crustal scale east-trending deformation zone within the Western Wabigoon Subprovince. The MBWDZ is marked by the syn-orogenic, Timiskaming-like polymictic conglomerate to coarse sedimentary and volcanic rocks of the Stormy Lake group, that juxtaposes older mafic volcanic rocks of the Boyer Lake group to the north and the Wapageisi group to the south.

The newly optioned land package, covering 25,400 hectares of ground, compliments Kenorland's 100% owned projects located in Western Ontario, including the Flora Project (47,800 hectares), the Western Wabigoon Project (58,900 hectares), and the Algoman Project (78,600 hectares), covering several regional scale structures within the Western Wabigoon and Marmion Subprovinces. In addition to the prospective geology, Kenorland believes that these project areas, totaling 210,700 hectares, are under-explored and is planning a number of large-scale systematic regional geochemical surveys to be completed during the 2024 summer field season.
