Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – February 25, 2022 – Supernova Metals Corp. (“SUPERNOVA” or the “Company”) (TSXV:SUPR) (OTC:ABETF) (Frankfurt:A1S.F) pleased to announce that the Company has closed its non-brokered private placement (the “Private placement”) issuing 1,996,363 ordinary shares (the “Shares”) at a price of $0.11 per share, generating total gross proceeds of $219,600.
The Company will use the proceeds of the private placement for initial exploration on its 100% owned property Lac Saint Simon lithium property (“LSS”) located in Quebec, Canada and for general working capital. No finder’s fee was paid in connection with the Private Placement.
About Lake Saint-Simon
The LSS property is located in the James Bay/Eeyou Istchee region of Quebec. The LSS property consists of 9 mining claims totaling approximately 480 hectares and has a historical technical report *NI 43-101 completed in May 2017. The property is only 2 km from the boundary of Nemaska’s Whabouchi (“Whabouchi”) project Lithium. According to Nemaska, Whabouchi is one of the world’s largest lithium spodumene hard rock deposits, both in volume and grade. In 2017, a 56.6 line km airborne magnetic drone-based survey identified two main dipole anomalies on the LSS property, and when combined with the general geology of the area and given the size of the anomalies, they probably represent geological features such as fault zones and a dyke system. Information from the survey will assist in a geological mapping and prospecting program to potentially identify potential lithium bearing pegmatite dykes on the property. The most promising geology appears to be potential pegmatite dykes in the pink granite in the southern part of the property. This area will be targeted for monitoring. Generally, lithium mineralization in the area has been concentrated in pegmatites, with nearby Whabouchi being the classic example. “Lithium demand and the global shift to renewable green power sources has accelerated in recent years,” said Sean McGrath, CEO. “Quebec offers mining-friendly jurisdiction as end users focus on establishing national supply chains.”

Each mandate allows its holder to acquire one additional Share of the Company at the price of $0.145 per share until 4:00 p.m. (Vancouver time) for two years from the debt settlement closing date.
