Gord Glenn, President & CEO commented, "The addition of JP to the advisory board marks yet another positive development as we advance; i) the restart of the PL Gold Mine, ii) continue discussions with regulators, service providers and technology and electrolyser OEM's for the development of the Flin Flon Clean Energy Hub and iii) continue developing Minnova Renewable Energy's global clean tech strategy. Having worked with JP in the past we welcome JP's experience in finance, M&A, restructuring and intimate knowledge of hydrogen electrolysis technologies and the potential for green hydrogen production to reduce CO2 emissions."

Pursuant to the Company's LTIP the Company announces that its board of directors has approved an option grant of 1,000,000 options to purchase common shares of the Company exercisable at a price of $0.09 per common share for a period of 5 years, to certain directors, officers, employees, and consultants including a grant of options for 200,000 common shares to Mr. Colin in his capacity as an advisor to the Company.

About Minnova Corp.

Minnova Corp. is an evolving cleantech company building a worldwide pipeline of green energy projects. Our subsidiary, Minnova Renewable Energy, is focused on innovative carbon reduction technologies such as biomass gasification technology. Separately the company is advancing large scale green hydrogen production via electrolysis at its Flin Flon Clean Energy Hub initiative.

Prior to 2021 Minnova Corp. has focused on the restart of its PL Gold Mine, which included completion of a Positive Feasibility Study in 2018. The study concluded the restart of the PL Mine, at an average annual production rate of 46,493 ounces over a minimum 5-year mine life, was economically robust. Importantly the global resource remains open to expansion, as does the reserve. The PL Gold Mine benefits from a short pre-production timeline forecast at 15 months, a valid underground mining permit (Environment Act 1207E), an existing 1,000 tpd processing plant, over 7,000 meters of developed underground ramp to -135 metres depth. The project is fully road accessible and close to existing mining infrastructure in the prolific Flin Flon Greenstone Belt of Central Manitoba.
