Transition Metals Congratulates Spinout Company SPC Nickel Corp on its Commencement of Trading on the TSX Venture Exchange

Sudbury, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - March 9, 2021) - Transition Metals Corp (TSXV: XTM) ("Transition", the "Company") is pleased to announce SPC Nickel Corp (TSXV: SPC) ("SPC Nickel"), a battery metals company focused on nickel and copper exploration in the Sudbury Basin, commenced trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the ticker SPC on March 8.

Scott McLean, P.Geo., CEO of Transition stated, "As a project generator, we spun out our Sudbury assets into SPC Nickel in 2013 so that it could focus on Ni-Cu-PGM exploration in the world-class mining camp. Our goal was for SPC to advance the Aer-Kidd project, a property positioned 1.8 km from Vale's Totten Mine and 3 km from KGHM's Victoria Deposit, without diluting existing XTM shareholders. In addition to advancing Aer-Kidd over the past few years, SPC Nickel has also added two more highly prospective properties in the world's second largest nickel camp. We are incredibly pleased that SPC Nickel is now public and look forward to watching it grow under the leadership of Grant Mourre, President & CEO."

SPC Nickel's public listing is beneficial for XTM shareholders, as all shareholders received dividend-in-kind shares of SPC (see February 24, 2021 press release) last week. Post the dividend-in-kind distribution, Transition Metals owns approximately 9.3 million SPC shares, representing about 9.1% of the outstanding shares.

As a result of the distribution of SPC shares, the exercise price of the Company's previously issued warrants have been adjusted in accordance with their terms.

About Transition Metals Corp

Transition Metals Corp (TSXV: XTM) is a Canadian-based, multi-commodity project generator that specializes in converting new exploration ideas into Canadian discoveries in Canada. The award- winning team of geoscientists has extensive exploration experience in established, emerging and historic mining camps and actively develops and tests new ideas for discovering mineralization in places that others have not looked, which often allows the company to acquire properties inexpensively. The team is rigorous in its fieldwork and combines traditional techniques with newer ones to help unearth compelling prospects and drill targets. Transition uses the project generator business model to acquire and advance multiple exploration projects simultaneously, thereby maximizing shareholder exposure to discovery and capital gain. Joint venture partners earn an interest in the projects by funding a portion of higher-risk drilling and exploration, allowing Transition to conserve capital and minimize shareholder's equity dilution. The Company has an expanding portfolio that currently includes more than 25 gold, copper, nickel and platinum projects across Canada.
