News Release


Vancouver, B.C. – March 22, 2022 – RT Minerals Corp. (TSXV: RTM) (OTC Pink: RTMFF) (the “Company” or “RTM”) announces that the Company will dispose of 102 square kilometres of mineral claims located near Kirkland Lake, Ontario (the “CGI Claims”), either by way of agreement with the original Vendors of the claims, or failing that, by way of abandonment (the “Disposal”). The Disposal will result in the cancellation of the remaining 18,900,000 common shares of the Company held in escrow under a TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) Surplus Escrow Share Agreement dated July 14, 2021 (the “TSXV-SESA”).

The Company’s board of directors has determined that it is in the best interest of the Company to dispose of the CGI claims and focus on the Company’s 100% optioned and separate four square kilometre Link-Catharine RLDZ property (the “Link-Catharine” property), where recent drilling encountered significant high and low grade gold mineralization within a known target area of approximately 400 metres wide by 3,000 metres long. Mr. Doug Andrews, B.Sc., MSc., President and CEO of the Company, comments: “We presently interpret this major feature as possibly being the source of the widespread gold mineralization encountered on the central and eastern portions of the Link-Catharine property.  The presence of known gold mineralization and structural features with magnetic highs and lows (see February 1, 2022 RTM News Release) makes the Link-Catharine property a more advanced prospect than the CGI Claims.” 

The CGI Claims are at the grass roots exploration stage. The amount of work credits required to be transferred from the Link-Catharine property to keep the CGI Claims in good standing would adversely delay the 100% option earn-in on the far more advanced Link-Catharine property. Furthermore, the erosion of junior capital market conditions in the last six months has made it more challenging to raise financing or secure a joint venture partner to explore and maintain the CGI Claims. As such, the CGI Claims no longer meet the Company’s risk to reward criteria in consideration of the significant capital dilution required to hold the property.

The Company originally acquired 100% interest in the CGI Claims through the purchase of Catharine Gold Inc. (“CGI”), a private holding company, for consideration of 21,000,000 common shares of the Company (the “Surplus Escrow Shares” or the “Shares”) that were subject to the TSXV-SESA as a condition of the transaction.  The Surplus Escrow Shares were held in escrow and are scheduled for release from escrow as to 1,050,000 Shares upon approval of the transaction by the TSXV (approved on July 14, 2021), 1,050,000 Shares six months thereafter (released on January 14, 2022), and the balance of 18,900,000 Shares on a staggered release schedule up to three years thereafter in accordance with the policies of the TSXV. The remaining 18,900,000 Surplus Escrow Shares will be cancelled in conjunction with the Disposal in accordance with the requirements of the TSXV and the TSXV-SESA. Following the cancellation, the Company will have 59,794,654 common shares issued and outstanding.
