McFarlane Lake Mining Exercises Option to Acquire Mongowin Property
Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – February 1, 2022) – McFarlane Lake Mining Limited (NEO: MLM) (“McFarlane Lake” or “the Company”), a Canadian gold exploration and development company, today announced that it has exercised its exclusive option to acquire a 100% interest in the Mongowin property (the “Mongowin Property”).
Located in northeastern Ontario, approximately 13 kilometres south of Espanola and 70 kilometres southwest of Sudbury, the Mongowin Property is adjacent to McFarlane Lake’s past producing McMillan property. The Mongowin Property is comprised of 122 mining and three patented claims, totaling 2,605 hectares.
“Being adjacent to our past producing property (McMillan) the Mongowin Property comes with another past producing property, namely the Fox Lake Mine. The Mongowin Property is complementary to our asset portfolio,” said Mark Trevisiol, President and Chief Executive Officer of McFarlane Lake. “This region has been explored for over a century, and we believe it remains highly prospective in nature, both along strike and at depth.”
Pursuant to the purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Transition Metals Corp. (“Transition”), McFarlane Lake’s total consideration for the Mongowin Property was: (i) $15,000 cash payment for a 5-month period exclusivity to transact, (ii) $45,000 to affect a 3-month extension of the period of exclusivity, (iii) $585,000, of which $85,000 was payable in cash and $500,000 was payable in common shares of the Company; and (iv) a 1.5% net smelter royalty. A small portion of the Mongowin Property includes an additional, underlying 1% royalty, of which 0.5% can be acquired for $600,000. Additionally, beginning on the fifth anniversary of the Purchase Agreement, McFarlane Lake 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) this will be offset by exploration expenditures. Lastly, upon the commercial exploitation of mineral products on the Mongowin Property, Transition will be entitled to a one-time payment of $2,500,000.
