Midas Minerals has broadened its investment portfolio with the acquisition of the Greenbush and Barbara Lake lithium projects in Ontario, Canada. This strategic move, facilitated through an option deal dated 12 February 2023, signifies a pivotal advancement for Midas in securing valuable lithium reserves amidst the escalating demand for this critical mineral.

Finalizing this acquisition required Midas to pay C$65,000 ($48,198) in cash and provide a 1% net smelter return (NSR) royalty to the private vendor, 2060014 Ontario. Importantly, Midas retains the option to repurchase half of this NSR royalty for C$500,000 at any given time. Notably, the royalty agreement encompasses an area of interest clause that extends to 429 claims at Greenbush South, which Midas staked in 2023.

Moreover, should Midas declare a mineral resource estimate on the projects, indicating a minimum of five million tonnes grading 1% Li2O or equivalent, an additional C$200,000 in cash will be payable to the vendor.

The Greenbush Project is strategically located a mere 12 kilometers east of Highway 599, approximately 95 kilometers north of Savant Lake, and 70 kilometers south of Pickle Lake in the Thunder Bay district. Its proximity to Green Technology Metals’ Root Lithium Project, positioned 80 kilometers to the west, places it in close proximity to the boundary between the English River and Uchi sub-provinces, renowned for their lithium potential.

On the other hand, the Barbara Lake Project is situated 35 kilometers northeast of Nipigon and nearly 130 kilometers northeast of Thunder Bay. Nestled within an active lithium province and surrounded by Imagine Lithium’s Jackpot Project, this location underscores the region's significance in lithium exploration and development endeavors.

Looking ahead, Midas Minerals plans to conduct additional low-cost mapping and sampling activities during the forthcoming field season. These efforts aim to refine targets for drilling initiatives scheduled for later in 2024.
