Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 6, 2024) - CO2 Lock Corp. ("CO2 Lock" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Scott Larson as the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Mr. Larson brings to CO2 Lock over 25 years of combined corporate finance, technology development and entrepreneurial experience.

"We are very pleased to welcome Scott as CO2 Lock's CEO, who will lead us along the next phase of our growth in pursuit of large-scale, low-cost and permanent carbon capture and storage," commented CO2 Lock's Director, Peter Bradshaw. "CO2 Lock is at a pivotal stage of development. In late-2023 CO2 Lock completed a comprehensive field program at our site in central British Columbia, including the first-ever successful injection of CO2 into a brucite-rich ultramafic deposit. Scott will be leading our next funding round and the execution of a large-scale pilot program in early 2025, which will result in the first commercial carbon mineralization project in British Columbia."

On March 30, 2022, FPX Nickel Corp. ("FPX") announced the formation of CO2 Lock to greatly expand on the five years of laboratory and field research into CO2 mineralization using material from its Baptiste deposit in the Decar Nickel District. This work, conducted jointly with the University of British Columbia and Natural Resources Canada, demonstrated that the geology at Decar is particularly favorable for mineralizing CO2, especially where the mineral brucite is present. FPX's international exploration has concluded that mineral deposits of this nature have the potential for mineralizing CO2 at an enormous scale.

"The opportunity to be part of a technology and process that will allow us to sequester carbon permanently, on a global scale, is very compelling," said Scott Larson. "I'm looking forward to building value, scaling up the Company, and developing partnerships throughout the carbon capture and cleantech sector."

Mr. Larson brings over 25 years of combined corporate finance, technology development and entrepreneurial experience to CO2 Lock. Before joining CO2 Lock Mr. Larson was CEO and co-founder of SpaceAlpha, an earth observation company building synthetic aperture radar technology and Helios Wire, a satellite company building out a space-enabled IoT/M2M network which was successfully sold. He was also previously CEO and co-founder of UrtheCast, scaling the Company from inception, taking it public on the Toronto Stock Exchange, raising $200 million, and leading the company to 250 employees with seven offices around the world.

Mr. Larson assumes the role of CO2 Lock's CEO from Mr. Cooper Quinn. On behalf of the Board of Directors, we extend our thanks to Mr. Quinn for his commitment and contributions to the company.
