September 4, 2020 – Cruz Battery Metals. (CSE: CRUZ) (OTC Pink: BKTPF) (FSE: A2DMG8) (“Cruz” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has entered into a share purchase agreement (the “Agreement”) to acquire assets consisting of one cobalt project and three separate diamond projects. The cobalt project is located within the Idaho Cobalt Belt surrounding Jervois Mining Ltd. (JRV–TSX.v). The diamond projects are all located within the Golden Mining Division of British Columbia. Cruz will now hold twelve separate projects in North America. Management cautions that past results or discoveries on properties in proximity to Cruz may not necessarily be indicative to the presence of mineralization on the Company’s properties.
Jim Nelson, President of Cruz states, “We are excited at the prospect of acquiring a highly-prospective cobalt project in the prolific Idaho Cobalt Belt which surrounds Jervois Mining Ltd. (JRV–TSX.v). We are also pleased that this prospective acquisition holds three diamond projects in BC that have seen historic diamond exploration. Diamond exploration has seen a recent resurgence and not only do we have these new BC diamond assets previously owned by Dia Met, but the area of where our property is located in the Cobalt region of Ontario, has recently experienced a boom in diamond exploration. There has been a large amount of work done right around Cruz’s properties this year and recently RJK Explorations Ltd. made a diamond discovery in the vicinity of our property (announced on April, 1, 2020). To date, we have only evaluated our significant portfolio of Ontario projects for cobalt, however, going forward we intend to evaluate these projects for diamond and silver potential. Cruz still has approximately $1.7 million in the treasury, enabling Cruz to be nimble at a time when the junior market sentiment has turned positive. Cruz has been silently waiting for the right time to recommence corporate activities and management feels the time is now. The remainder of 2020 will be very active for Cruz.”
Cruz entered into an arms length Agreement with 1205011 B.C. Ltd. (“1205011”) to acquire all the issued and outstanding share capital of 1205011. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the Company has agreed to issue nine million common shares of the Company (each, a “Share”) at a deemed price of $0.05 per Share. This share issuance will not result in a change of control. 1205011, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, owns a 100 per cent undivided, unencumbered legal and beneficial interest in 2,211-acre ‘Idaho Cobalt Belt Project’. 1205011 also directly holds the 2,552-acre Larry diamond project, the 5,572-acre Jax diamond project, and the 1,529-acre Mark diamond project, located in British Columbia and Idaho.
