ST. JOHN’S, Newfoundland and Labrador, Sept. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vulcan Minerals Inc. (the “Company”, “Vulcan” TSX-V:VUL) announces that a binding Letter of Intent has been signed with Fjordland Exploration Inc. (“Fjordland”) granting Fjordland the option to acquire a 100% working interest in 30 mineral claims (750 hectares) located in the South Voisey’s Bay area, Labrador. Under the terms of the agreement, Fjordland has the option to pay Vulcan 1,350,000 common shares, $70,000 cash and incur $250,000 in exploration expenditures over a period of three years, of which $25,000 cash and 600,000 common shares are payable upon signing the agreement. Vulcan reserves a 2% net smelter return royalty on the claims subject to Fjordland’s right to buy back 50% of that royalty by paying Vulcan $2,000,000 cash.

The property is contiguous to mineral tenure held by Fjordland as part of their ongoing South Voisey’s Bay nickel-copper-cobalt Project. The South Voisey’s Bay project area contains the Pant’s Lake mafic intrusive complex which was first explored for nickel following the 1993 discovery of the Voisey’s Bay nickel-copper-cobalt mine, approximately 80 kilometers north. Several rounds of drilling and geophysics have established the intrusion’s potential for significant accumulations of massive magmatic sulphides.
