("GoldCo", and together with the Company, the "Parties") are pleased to announce that the Parties have received conditional acceptance from the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") for the closing of the previously-announced arm's length qualifying transaction of the Parties (the "Qualifying Transaction"). In connection with the Qualifying Transaction, the Parties have publicly filed a filing statement dated April 7, 2022 (the "Filing Statement"), prepared in accordance with the requirements of the TSXV, as well a technical report in respect of the FAD Property (as defined below) with an effective date of April 7, 2022 (the "Technical Report"), prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 - Standards for Disclosure for Mineral Projects. The Filing Statement and the Technical Report are both available under the Company's issuer profile on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval ("SEDAR") at www.sedar.com.

Further to the Parties' comprehensive news release dated December 24, 2021, the Qualifying Transaction will be completed by way of a three-cornered amalgamation (the "Amalgamation") under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) among the Company, GoldCo, and 1000031859 Ontario Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company incorporated for the purpose of completing the Amalgamation. The Amalgamation will result in the reverse takeover of the Company by the shareholders of GoldCo, following which, the Company, as the issuer resulting therefrom (the "Resulting Issuer"), is expected to carry on the current business of GoldCo under the name "Paycore Minerals Inc." or such other name as may be determined by GoldCo and be acceptable to the applicable regulatory authorities. The business of the Resulting Issuer will be primarily focused on mineral exploration and development of the "FAD Property" (the "FAD Property") located on the Eureka-Battle Mountain trend in Nevada, USA. It is anticipated that the common shares of the Resulting Issuer will trade on the TSXV under the ticker symbol "CORE" shortly following the closing of the Qualifying Transaction.

The completion of the Qualifying Transaction is subject to a number of conditions including, but not limited to, receipt of all required regulatory approvals, including final TSXV acceptance, and satisfaction of other customary closing conditions. Assuming all conditions for closing are satisfied, the closing of the Qualifying Transaction is expected to occur on or about April 20, 2022, or such other date as the Parties may determine.
