Firestone Ventures Inc. Receives TSXV Approval of Debt Settlement for Shares

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – October 19, 2017) – FIRESTONE VENTURES INC. (TSXV: FV) (“Firestone” or the “Company“) is pleased to report that the TSX Venture Exchange has accepted for filing the Company’s proposal to issue 9,296,800 common shares of Firestone in settlement of an aggregate of $464,840 of debt owed to two creditors — the first being a former officer of the Company and the second being Bambazonke Holdings Ltd. (“Bambazonke”), a company controlled by Dr. Keith Barron, Chairman and director of Firestone. The issuance of 8,896,800 shares (“Debt Settlement 1”) to Bambazonke pursuant to Debt Settlement 1, will bring the beneficial holding of Dr. Barron to approximately 19.6% of Firestone’s issued and outstanding shares, on a fully diluted basis.

In addition, at the upcoming Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders to be held on October 26, 2017, Shareholders will be asked to consider and if thought fit, to pass an ordinary resolution of disinterested shareholders approving the settlement of the balance of the indebtedness to Dr. Barron, namely: $270,000 of cash advances pursuant to a non-interest-bearing promissory note and $110,000 indebtedness to Geosource Resources Inc. (“Geosource”), a company controlled by Dr. Barron, in respect of office services including office rent, provided by Geosource, to the Company from October 2015 to August 2017. The passing of this resolution will result in the issuance of an aggregate of 7,600,000 common shares of Firestone (“Debt Settlement 2”) to Geosource or to Dr. Barron’s designee, at the deemed price of $0.05 per share. Completion of this second transaction will increase Dr. Barron’s beneficial holding of Firestone from 19.6% to approximately 31%.

Shares that will be acquired by Dr. Barron, pursuant to the Debt Settlements 1 and 2 will be: a)subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance in accordance applicable securities legislation, and b) held for investment purposes, and depending on market and other conditions, Dr. Barron and/or his designee may from time to time in the future increase or decrease his ownership, control or direction over securities of the Company through market transactions, private agreements, or otherwise. The issuance of Shares to the creditors, pursuant to the debt settlements, constitutes a “related party transaction” as this term is defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“). The Company relies on the exemption from valuation requirement pursuant to subsection 5.5(b) of MI 61-101, as the securities of the Company are not listed or quoted on enumerated stock exchanges, and the Company relies on the exemption from minority approval under subsection 5.7 (b) of MI 61-101, as the securities of Company are not listed or quoted on an enumerated exchange; neither consideration received, nor the fair value of the securities distributed exceeds $2,500,000; and at least two thirds of independent directors of the Company, voted in favour of the related party transaction.

Early Warning Reports

Prior to Debt Settlement 1, Dr. Barron beneficially owned Nil common shares representing Nil% of the outstanding and issued shares of the Company. Following the completion of Debt Settlement 1, Dr. Barron owns 8,896,800 common shares representing 19.6% of the outstanding and issued shares of the Company and this prompted the requirement to file an Early Warning Report. Contemplating Debt Settlement 2, Dr. Barron’s beneficial holding in Firestone will increase from 19.6% to approximately 31%. Dr. Barron is an insider of the Company, as this term is defined in the Securities Act, (Ontario) and in satisfaction of the requirements of the National Instrument 62-104 — Take-Over Bids And Issuer Bids and National Instrument 62-103 — The Early Warning System and Related Take-Over Bid and Insider Reporting Issues, Early Warning Reports respecting the acquisition of Shares pursuant to debt settlements, by Dr. Barron, will be filed under the Company’s SEDAR Profile at www.sedar.com. For the purposes of this notice, the address of Dr. Barron is 1050 — 36 Toronto St. Toronto, ON M5C 2C5.

China Minerals Announces Filing of Technical Report

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 19, 2017) – China Minerals Mining Corporation (TSXV: CMV) (OTC Pink: HWTHF) (“China Minerals” or the “Company”) announces that the Company has filed a National Instrument 43-101 technical report (the “Technical Report“) entitled “Technical Report on the Cassiar Gold Property, British Columbia, Canada” on Sedar.com. The Report is effective June 26, 2017, signed September 13, 2017 and revised October 2, 2017. The Technical Report does not contain a resource. The Technical Report does contain an exploration target.

Exploration Target

Based on the strength and character of the mineralizing systems mined in the Table Mountain area and the past performance at the millsite on the Cassiar Gold Property, there is potential for an exploration target that can be reasonably estimated for the TM-TSF #1 (also known as the Erickson Tailings #1).

The available data is sufficient at this time to roughly quantify an exploration target for the TM-TSF #1 of 400,000 – 500,000 tonnes grading 0.97 – 1.25g/t Au.

Assumptions: Mill records show the estimated grade and quantity of tailings that were discharged to the TM-TSF #1. Systematic sampling of the tailings with 33 test pits on a 50m grid pattern have helped quantity the tonnes and grade. Thickness of the TM-TSF #1 from this work demonstrated it varies between 3.2m and 4.70m thick but averages 3.7m thick over an area of 8ha. Metallurgical reports which included grain size analyses and bench scale testing anticipated that 50-60% of the contained gold in the tailings may be recovered through a gravity-flotation flowsheet to generate a high grade flotation concentrate.

The potential quantity and grade of this exploration target is conceptual in nature; there has been insufficient exploration to define a Mineral Resource and that it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a Mineral Resource.

Qualified Person

Technical disclosure in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Paul Cowley, P.Geo., an Independent Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

RT Minerals Corp. Reports on Drilling, Power Stripping and Prospecting at Norwalk Property Wawa, Ontario and Second Close of Financing

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 19, 2017) – RT Minerals Corp. (TSXV: RTM) (OTC Pink: RTMFF) (the “Company”) announces that further to its news release of September 7, 2017, it has completed ten (10) shallow NQ core drill holes (807 metres), power stripping, prospecting, geological mapping, and sampling of geophysical targets and historical gold showings on the Company’s 100% optioned Norwalk gold property. Norwalk adjoins the southern boundary of Red Pine Explorations Inc. (“Red Pine”) Wawa gold property.

The Company is exploring for groups of close-spaced significant gold-bearing structures and areas of near-surface gold-bearing disseminated sulphides targeting a large orogenic gold deposit. Norwalk and Gananoque are two gold-bearing areas located about 1,600 metres from one another, with groups of historical gold occurrences that align in 800 to 1,200 metre zones that may be related to regional structures. The Company has not yet conducted enough work to establish the relationship between historical gold occurrences.

Area L1250-615N located in the south-central part of the Norwalk property has been drilled, mechanically stripped, power washed, mapped and sampled during the current program. Surface assays confirm significant gold mineralization with free gold in a 1 to 2 metre thick chloritic shear zone with quartz-carbonate-tourmaline veins that is exposed for some 20 metre strike length in a surface-stripped area. Grab sample 582567 (UTM 667720E 5310414N) returned 4.49 g Au/Mt, and 669.55 g Au/Mt (check), and sample 582516 (same location) returned 61.39 g Au/Mt.

This gold-bearing structure was tested by drill holes N17-08, N17-09 and N17-10. While most samples are still in cue for assaying, drill hole N17-09 (UTM 667712E 5310420N, Azimuth 120°, Dip -45°) returned 200 ppb Au from 8.0 to 9.0 metres. This gold-bearing intercept demonstrates that gold bearing structures on surface continue with depth.

Highly variable gold results present from surface samples and drill core sampling at Area L1250-615N suggest nugget effect gold assays, when a gold assay does not precisely measure the gold content of the entire sample tested due to non-uniform distribution of high-grade gold nuggets in rock. Gold assays with nugget effect cannot be relied upon as the actual gold content is somewhere between extreme high or extreme low gold values. The Company will re-assay sample rejects using pulp and metallic sieve analysis method to more accurately quantify the gold content of each gold-bearing sample.

Current drilling has tested 5 of 69 geophysical Induced Polarization (IP) targets identified by the Company from its recent 36 line-kilometre IP geophysical survey. IP chargeability anomalies are explained in core by disseminated pyrrhotite (Po) and pyrite (Py). IP resistivity anomalies are explained in core by increased silica content.

Drill hole N17-02 (UTM 668202E 5310838N, Azimuth 025°, Dip-45°) tested an IP chargeability high anomaly with local resistivity high, and intersected moderately foliated to sheared quartz diorite with 2 to 4% medium to fine-grained disseminated pyrrhotite and pyrite that returned 130 ppb Au from 133-134m depth, and later intersected a mafic mylonite with trace sulphides and 10 cm quartz vein that returned 1.08 g Au/Mt from 140 to 141 metres depth.

Surface stripping and washing conducted in Area L1100 has exposed disseminated sulphides in outcrop. This mineralized zone may correspond to the IP chargeability high explained by disseminated sulphides in core hole N17-04 (UTM 668051E 5310251N, Azimuth 045°, Dip -45°), which returned 1.44 g Au/Mt from 81.5 to 83.5 metres from strongly foliated intermediate metavolcanics with 5 to 8% fine sulphides (Arsenopyrite, Py and Po) and 10% quartz stringers. Stripped Area L1100 will be mapped and sampled in the coming weeks.

Assays of drill core intervals of foliated mafic intrusive rocks and foliated intermediate metavolcanics with disseminated sulphides with quartz veins can be mineralized with gold.

Prospecting has been effective at Norwalk, and this work has located several historical small-scale mined areas with shafts or adits driven on shear zones with quartz veins. Significant surface trenching and blasting is also evidence of gold potential at each site. Two groups of historical showings (Norwalk and Gananoque) are located about 1,600 metres from one another.

Norwalk workings extend for some 800 metres in a general north-south orientation in the eastern part of the property, which represents a sizeable gold target for further exploration. Historical workings include an inclined shaft, a vertical shaft, and two adits driven into a common shear zone and quartz vein, and numerous surface trenches.

Gananoque workings extend for some 1,200 metres and align in a NNE trend in the western part of the property. Prospecting along a steep hillside near the historical Gananoque gold showing has located two adits driven on shallow-dipping quartz veins along a steep hillside. Previous assays of grab samples from muck at the base of the hill returned from 20 ppb to 1.45 g/Mt Au (RTM Press Release Aug 22, 2017). Prospecting has exposed an extensive area of strongly carbonate, fuchsite and silica altered metavolcanics yet to be mapped and sampled.

The Company’s exploration team has efficiently identified two areas of the Norwalk property that warrant further gold exploration, namely Norwalk and Gananoque. Each area is between 800 to 1,200 metres in length with numerous historical gold workings, and each area represents a significant target for further gold exploration. The Company will continue to explore prominent structures and zones of gold-bearing disseminated sulphides with the objective to discover shallow, continuous zones of gold mineralization.

The Company intends to complete an additional ten core drill holes, from 80 to 200 metres in core length to test current exploration targets and models. Prospecting, geological mapping, and surface sampling will continue.

According to the Complaint, during the Class Period, Vitamin Shoppe made false and/or misleading statements, and/or failed to disclose: that the Company’s retail segment was continuing to dramatically decline; that the Company’s ongoing “reinvention plan” had been unsuccessful and brought more than $168 million in goodwill impairment, and it was not properly recognizing that impairment charge; and that as a result of the above, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. When this news reached the public, Vitamin Shoppe’s stock price declined materially, which caused investors harm according to the lawsuit.

Stonegate Capital Partners Initiates Coverage on TransGlobe Energy Corporation (NASDAQ: TGA)

By Stonegate Capital Partners

DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / October 19, 2017 / TransGlobe Energy Corporation (“Company”) (“TGA”) (NASDAQ: TGA).

COMPANY DESCRIPTION

TransGlobe Energy Corporation (“Company”) (“TGA”) is an independent oil and gas exploration and production company, with current operations in Alberta, Canada, and the Arab Republic of Egypt. TGA also operated in Yemen for 19 years, before selling those interests in 2015. The Company has operated in Egypt since 2004 and holds interests in production sharing concessions in the Eastern Desert and the Western Desert regions. TransGlobe operated in Canada from 1999 to 2008 and recently re-entered Canada in December 2016. The Company’s Canadian holdings include production and working interests in Cardium light oil and Mannville liquid-rich gas assets in the Harmattan area, located in west-central Alberta. TransGlobe Energy is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, and has approximately 77 employees.

SUMMARY

TransGlobe has been in the international oil and gas industry for over twenty years and has drilled more than 400 gross wells in varying geological formations, political climates and economic environments. Through the execution of a disciplined business plan involving significant cost-cutting measures, a strategic acquisition, and key contracts with the Egyptian government and third-party marketers, TGA’s experienced management team has steered the Company through a difficult period involving low oil prices and political turmoil, and, as a result, TransGlobe is well-positioned to return to profitability over the near-term.

  • TransGlobe has a current production base of roughly 16,000 boepd, and a number of low-risk development projects in Canada and Egypt, along with some potentially high-impact exploration opportunities in Egypt. All of the projects have very high company ownership/working interest, which better enables TGA to react quickly to commodity prices. Short-term, we look for TransGlobe to focus on its low-risk programs, pivoting its attention to high-impact opportunities beginning in 2018.
  • Following a chaotic period in the aftermath of the Arab Spring uprising in 2014, Egypt has regained political and economic stability. Consequently, TransGlobe has gained access to the Boraq field (formerly blocked by the Egyptian military) in the South Alamein concession in the Western Desert. This is a low-cost, potentially high-impact field that is especially attractive because of its high flow rates and light oil that sells at close to Brent crude pricing. Successful appraisal wells could lead to first production at year-end 2017 or early 2018.
  • At year-end 2016, TGA acquired some producing high-quality light oil and liquid-rich gas plays in in west-central Alberta, Canada. The acquisition was designed to diversify TGA geographically and expand operations outside areas with geopolitical risk. The property has a slow decline rate (12% over the last year), and the acquisition came with 149 potential drilling opportunities. The historical low operating costs and favorable royalty and tax structure of the area supports growth at current oil prices and provides opportunities to increase reserves and production in proven plays using advanced horizontal drilling and multi-stage frac technology.
  • Based on a 12/31/16 D&M evaluation, the Company reports ~29.3MMbl 2P gross reserves for its Egyptian assets (~18.3MMbl 1P gross), as well as ~20.7MMboe 2P gross reserves in Canada (~9.0MMboe 1P gross), with both areas offering extensive and diversified development and exploration opportunities.
  • Per the most recent filing, if not for an impairment charge associated with a write-down of a property in Egypt, TransGlobe would have shown positive net income for Q217, which would have been the best quarter since Q4 2014. The Company’s guidance includes production growth of between 30% and 40%, compared with 2016. Notably, as of June 30, 2017, the Company had 1,274,057 barrels of entitlement oil in inventory valued at $13.43 per barrel on its balance sheet.
  • An October 16, 2017 press release detailed that TGA produced on average ~14.9 MBoepd in Q317 and sold ~793,000 bbls of entitlement crude oil for net proceeds of ~$34.5M (includes realized hedging loss).

On a comparable company basis for FY17 estimates, TGA currently trades at an EV/S multiple of 1.2x while its peers trade at a median multiple of 2.7x, an EV/EBITDA of 2.5x vs. the median of its peers at 5.3x, and a P/CFPS of 2.8x vs. the median of its peers at 4.9x.
