Vulcan Minerals Inc. – Acquires Claims at Red Cross Lake Nickel - Gold Project

ST. JOHN’S, Newfoundland and Labrador, June 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vulcan Minerals Inc. (“the Company” - “Vulcan” TSX-V: VUL) announces that it has purchased a 100% interest in twenty (20) mineral claims from a prospector at Red Cross Lake in central Newfoundland. These claims are adjacent to the Company’s existing Red Cross Lake property and were covered by the Company’s 2021 airborne VTEM plus time-domain EM and magnetic survey (flown by Geotech).

The acquisition cost for the claims is $10,000 cash and 100,000 common shares subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval. The vendor retains a 1% net smelter returns royalty over which the Company has complete buy back rights.

The Red Cross Lake property covers a trans-tensional zone within a flexure on the Valentine Lake fault containing a mafic/ultramafic intrusion. The VTEM survey was designed to test for the geophysical signature of a magmatic nickel-copper deposit and secondly to delineate detailed structure and geology to direct gold exploration immediately offsetting Marathon Gold Corp’s claims to the west where a gold mine is currently under development. Further details regarding the geophysical interpretation of this area will be forthcoming.
