Crown Mining Proposes $100,000 Non-Brokered Private Placement

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – December 14, 2018) – Crown Mining Corporation (TSXV: CWM) (“Crown” or the “Company“) announces a proposed non-brokered private placement for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $100,000 comprised of up to 1,000,000 units at a price of $0.10 per unit (each such unit being comprised of one common share and one warrant) (the “Offering“). Each warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share for $0.16 at any time within 2 years after closing subject to an acceleration clause. All securities issued pursuant to this private placement will be subject to a four (4) month hold period. The Company proposes to pay to eligible finders a finder’s fee equal to a cash payment of 10% of the gross proceeds raised. Completion of the Offering is subject to receipt of all required regulatory and TSX Venture Exchange approvals.

The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Private Placement for general working capital purposes.

About Crown Mining Corp.

Crown controls approximately 15 square miles of patented and unpatented federal mining claims in the Light’s Creek Copper District in Plumas County, NE California; essentially, the entire District. The District contains substantial copper (silver) sulfide and copper oxide resources in three deposits – Moonlight, Superior and Engels, as well as several partially tested and untested exploration targets.

The Superior and Engels Mines operated from about 1915-1930 producing over 161 million pounds of copper from over 4 million tons of rock containing 2.2% copper with silver and gold credits.

The Moonlight Deposit was discovered and drilled by Placer Amex during the 1960’s. A Preliminary Economic Assessment Study (“PEA”), prepared by Tetra Tech Inc., had the following highlights:

  • After-tax NPV of US$179M at a 8% discount rate and a $3.15 copper price
  • After tax IRR of 14.6%
  • Initial Capital Cost: US$513M, including a contingency provision in the amount of US$71M
  • Plant Processing Rate: 60,000 tons per day (STPD)
  • Average Copper Recovery: 86.0%
  • Mine Life: 17 years, based on the existing Mineral Resource estimate
  • Life of mine copper production of 1.5 billion pounds

Please note the PEA is preliminary in nature and includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. Furthermore, there is no certainty that the preliminary economic assessment will be realized. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Readers are encouraged to read the technical report when it is filed.

Further details of the PEA and the resources on Crown’s property and the parameters used to calculate them can be found in the “Technical Report and Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Moonlight Deposit, Moonlight-Superior Copper Project, California, USA” dated April 12, 2018 on both the company’s website at www.crownminingcorp.com or on www.sedar.com under the Crown Mining Corp profile.

Mr. George Cole is the Qualified Person pursuant to NI 43-101 responsible for the technical information contained in this news release, and he has reviewed and approved this news release.

BLOC Provides Update About Singularity Exchange and Laser Projects

The Singularity Exchange is introducing a crowdsale platform which, along with the exchange itself, will have an official launch date of Tuesday, January 8, 2019. This date will also be the beginning of the first crowdsale to be hosted on the exchange. To provide a unified trading solution, BLOC has also adjusted Laser’s approach to better suit its utility as the backbone network of Singularity’s custody solution. These changes are made in the interest of putting focus on projects with immediate revenue-generation potential.

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 14, 2018) – GLOBAL BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGIES CORP. (CSE: BLOC.U) (FSE: BWSP) (OTC Pink: BLKCF) (“BLOC” or the “Company”) has recently finalized some important milestones of its projects Singularity Exchange, a decentralized crypto asset trading platform, and Laser, a second-layer interoperability network for blockchains. These projects have undergone some changes, as a result of both the shift in the crypto markets and developments related to the projects themselves. Despite the market shift, both projects are currently on track to perform as anticipated, due to the impact that they will have on the blockchain ecosystem, as well as the broader financial markets.

The Company has developed a crowdsale platform to be part of the Singularity Exchange, which will be for the sale of utility tokens, which includes asset types such as network access tokens and corporate loyalty tokens. The first crowdsale that will be held on Singularity is for the AMR token, the underlying crypto asset of Ammbr, a blockchain-based decentralized wireless mesh network project that BLOC’s sister company Global Blockchain Mining Corp. (“FORK”) recently announced its involvement with. This crowdsale will begin on Tuesday, January 8, 2019, which will also be the official launch date of the Singularity Exchange. Further information will be provided in a later press release.

Moreover, BLOC is tailoring Singularity’s approach to the needs of crypto asset traders by making it a “meta exchange” for other DEX (decentralized exchange) platforms, in addition to providing custodianship, making Singularity a unified trading solution. At its launch date, Singularity will support Stellar’s decentralized exchange, with support for Ethereum’s 0x DEX network to be integrated by the end of Q1 2019, and several more to be added by the end of 2019.

With respect to custodianship, Singularity’s custodianship platform will be a decentralized network by itself, using BLOC’s Laser protocol. For simplicity, custodianship on Singularity will be centralized at the outset, though it will become decentralized in steps. Originally, Laser was built to be a second-layer protocol for underlying blockchain networks to interoperate with one another, having its own native token as a way of adding more value to the network. In the interest of focusing on projects which will generate immediate revenue, such as the Singularity Exchange and the Dubai-based trade finance project (announced August 16, 2018), BLOC has elected to not proceed with creating a native token for the Laser protocol.

Nevertheless, Laser will be able to function exactly as originally planned, operating as a second-layer network that enables interoperability between the blockchain networks of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Steem, EOS, Bitshares, and Stellar, further providing the option of near-instant and anonymous transaction abilities. Laser will also have initial support for Nuvocash, a blockchain network for decentralized social communities that FORK has recently been commissioned to improve on for a UK-based social network operator. It is still intended for the Cayman-based entity Laser Technologies Corp. to act as a governing body for service node operators on Laser’s network.

“Despite the recent drop in market cap, 2018 has been a great year for blockchain and crypto”, said Shidan Gouran, President and CEO of the Company. “There may have been ups and downs in the crypto market, but it remains clear that there is a persisting interest in cryptocurrencies as a more advanced way of transacting value, as well as in blockchain networks as a decentralized form of governance. Our decisions relating to the Singularity Exchange and the Laser protocol reflect this, in that we are not focusing so much on crypto assets themselves; but rather, on ways in which their utility can be maximized. Right now, there are more than 2,070 different cryptocurrencies – and collectively, their growth potential is very much limited by unsophisticated exchange solutions that do not foster long-term growth. That long-term growth is our objective with both Singularity and Laser, and with Singularity’s launch just over three weeks away, there are some exciting developments to be seen in Q1 2019.”

Jeffrey S. Mooney Named Associate Director in the Office of Clearance and Settlement

Washington, D.C.–(Newsfile Corp. – December 14, 2018) – The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that Jeffrey S. Mooney has been named Associate Director of the Office of Clearance and Settlement in the agency’s Division of Trading and Markets.

Mr. Mooney joined the SEC staff in 1996 and has served in a variety of roles, most recently as Assistant Director for the Office of Clearance and Settlement. He has been instrumental in regulatory and policy initiatives for clearing agencies and security-based swap data repositories, and has represented the agency in international working groups focused on standards for financial market infrastructure. Mr. Mooney served as a Senior Special Counsel in the division from 2000 to 2009, and participated in an interagency effort to develop provisions of Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Act. He also represented the agency in domestic and international working groups designed to improve the clearance and settlement process. In 1998, he served as counsel to SEC Chairman Arthur Levitt on matters related to market regulation, enforcement and compliance, and from 1996 to 2000 he was a Special Counsel in the division with responsibility for reviewing proposed rule changes submitted by registered clearing agencies. Before joining the SEC, Mr. Mooney served in the Office of General Counsel at the National Credit Union Administration and in the Office of Thrift Supervision at the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

The Office of Clearance and Settlement is responsible for developing and administering the Commission’s regulatory program for the national system of clearance and settlement of securities transactions. The office oversees systemically important financial market utilities and security-based swap clearing activity. The office also engages in oversight, rulemaking and other supervisory and policy matters for clearing agencies, transfer agents and security-based swap data repositories.

“I am thrilled that Jeff, a veteran of our agency, has been selected to lead the dedicated staff in the Office of Clearance and Settlement,” said Chairman Jay Clayton. “Our markets and investors will be well served by Jeff’s more than two decades of public service – including 22 years at the SEC – and his deep experience on a broad range of clearance and settlement matters.”

“Jeff’s extensive experience and knowledge makes him extremely well suited for his new position,” said Brett Redfearn, Director of the Division of Trading and Markets. “I am confident that he will be an important leader in our ongoing efforts to oversee our nation’s system of clearance and settlement and to serve the long-term interests of Main Street investors.”

“I am excited and honored to be provided with this opportunity and responsibility. Over the course of my career, I have worked alongside extremely talented individuals and fully appreciate the important work that is being done by the staff in the Office of Clearance and Settlement, the Division of Trading and Markets, and across the Commission,” said Mr. Mooney.

Mr. Mooney holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee, and a J.D. from the Georgetown University Law Center.
