February 26, 2021 – Vancouver, B.C. – Soldera Mining Corp. (CSE:SOLD) (OTC PINK:SLDMF) (“Soldera” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a letter of intent (the “LOI”) to acquire (the “Transaction”) AmTek Inc. (“AmTek”). AmTek is the owner of the Whabouchi South lithium exploration property (the “Whabouchi South Property”) located in the James Bay/Eeyou Istche region of Quebec and is working on the development of a proprietary technology to produce “green ammonia”, a potential carbon-free energy source.
The Whabouchi South Property
The Whabouchi South Property consists of 24 mineral claims totalling 1,280 hectares located less than 4 km from the boundary of Nemaska Lithium’s Whabouchi Lithium Deposit, one of North America’s richest lithium spodumene deposits.1
1 Please see: Nemaska Lithium Inc.’s management’s discussion and analysis for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2020, which is available on www.SEDAR.com.
In 2014, a 357 line km heliborne magnetic and spectrometric survey covered approximately 50% of the Whabouchi South Property (Sigeom Assessment Report GM69169).
Faizaan Lalani, Interim CEO of Soldera, states “with such a large deposit nearby as well as access to power and roads, AmTek’s Whabouchi South Property is well placed geologically and logistically. We will also be able to rely on Nemaska’s nearby Whabouchi Lithium project as a guide for exploration, permitting and planning at Whabouchi South.”
Ammonia Extraction Technology Development
Together with its partner, ORF Technologies Inc., AmTek is also working on the development of a proprietary solution to produce “green ammonia”. Green ammonia is carbon free and can be used as a fuel, for energy storage, as a fertilizer, and as a household and industrial chemical. Because of its higher energy density and lower volatility than hydrogen, it is also easy to transport.
Pursuant to the LOI, Soldera has agreed to acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of AmTek in consideration for 12,000,000 common shares of Soldera (the “Consideration Shares”). 90% of the Consideration Shares, when issued, will be subject to resale restrictions expiring as follows: (i) 1/6 four (4) months from closing; (ii) 1/6 eight (8) months from closing; (iii) 1/6 twelve (12) months from closing; (iv) 1/6 sixteen (16) months from closing; (v) 1/6 twenty (20) months from closing; and (vi) 1/6 twenty-four (24) months from closing. Completion of the Transaction is subject to customary conditions precedent,
including execution of a definitive agreement respecting same, approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange and engagement of certain key personnel of AmTek by Soldera.
