MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Dec. 19, 2017) - Canadian Metals Inc. (The "Company") (CSE:CME)(CSE:CME.CN)(CNSX:CME) is very pleased to announce the company is proceeding forward with the next stage of the Langis Project development into a Pre-feasibility study (PFS). The Pre-feasibility study work is awarded to CIMA+ following the successful completion of the Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) and it is expected to be completed in the first half of 2018.

After the successful completion of the PEA the company undertook an additional drilling program during the spring and summer of 2017 to expand the resources and move to the indicated and measured categories. Based on the results a new resources model was developed and it will be the basis of the Pre-feasibility design work.

The Pre-feasibility work plan strategy was developed around the new resource model for a Base Case 100% Ferro Silicon (FeSi) production.

Some major items to be considered in the pre-feasibility report are:

  • Complete the Pre-feasibility Study report within the National Instrument 43-101 requirements;
  • Compliance with the requirements from the Autorité Des Marchés Financiers (AMF);
  • Geology and Resource Model and Mine design review and considerations;
  • Beneficiation Plant design;
  • Metallurgical Plant design;
  • Environmental compliance;
  • Engineering work;
  • Identify the marketing strategy for the product;
  • Infrastructure requirements;
  • Manpower strategy and human resource plan;
  • Capital and Operating costs structure optimization and adhering to the local standards and specifics;
  • Project economics including development of a Financial Model, based on the Capital and Operating costs completed in Canadian Dollars (CAN$);
  • Conclusions and all recommendations to perform during the next phase;
  • Health and Safety recommendations;
  • Operational Readiness;
  • Opportunities, risk analysis and risk register;
  • Project management of the Pre-feasibility Study;
  • Project Development Roadmap, presenting the tasks, time and costs to further develop the project from the PFS to Feasibility Study (FS), Engineering, Procurement, Construction Management, Commissioning, Production Ramp-up and Operations.

Mr. Hubert Vallée, President and CEO of Canadian Metals, stated: "We are extremely happy to proceed further into the next stage of the Langis project development starting with the Pre-feasibility study and to work once again with CIMA+ and build on the successful completion of the Preliminary Economic Assessment for us. We are confident having the right expertise and experience, CIMA+ will continue to work with Canadian Metals as our partners in the Langis project development and look forward to another successful project."

Canadian Metals looks forward to a successful Pre-feasibility project implementation and a continuous partnership with CIMA+ going to the next stages of the project development.
