Strategic Investment by
Kirkland Lake Gold
V.CQR, T.KL | 1 hour ago
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - September 16, 2020) -
Conquest Resources Limited (TSXV: CQR) ("Conquest" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced
non-brokered subscription receipt financing to raise gross proceeds of $3,110,000 (the "Non-Brokered Financing"),
and a separate concurrent subscription receipt financing with Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (TSX: KL) (NYSE: KL) (ASX: KLA) to raise gross proceeds of $1,300,000 (the "KL Financing").
John Kearney, Chairman of Conquest stated, "We are very pleased with the strong interest in our financings and, in particular,
we welcome Kirkland Lake as a strategic shareholder.
We look forward to completing the acquisition of Canadian Continental Exploration Corp.,
following which the enlarged Conquest will own a unique and very prospective portfolio of exploration properties in some of the most well-known mining camps in Ontario.
Conquest will be well capitalized with over $5 million in cash and we look forward to beginning our drill program in October."
Kirkland Lake Strategic Investment
In connection with the KL Financing, Conquest has issued 10,000,000 subscription receipts (the "KL Subscription Receipts")
to Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. ("Kirkland Lake") at a price of $0.13 each to raise gross receipts of $1,300,000. Each KL Subscription Receipt
entitles the holder to acquire one unit of Conquest (a "KL Unit"), for no additional consideration. Each KL Unit consists of one common share of Conquest
(as it exists after giving effect to the previously announced 2.5 for one consolidation of the issued and outstanding Conquest shares (the "Consolidation"))
and one quarter of one share purchase warrant of Conquest.
Each full share purchase warrant (a "Warrant") is exercisable at $0.18 for a period of two years following the completion of Conquest's previously
announced acquisition (the "Acquisition") of Canadian Continental Exploration Corp. ("CCEC"). See Conquest News Releases July 16, 2020, August 7, 2020, and August 27, 2020.
The gross proceeds of the KL Financing have been deposited in escrow (the "KL Escrowed Funds").
The KL Subscription Receipts will automatically convert into KL Units and the KL Escrowed Funds will be released to Conquest upon completion of the
Acquisition and Consolidation (the "Escrow Release Conditions").
In the event that the Escrow Release Conditions are not satisfied by November 30, 2020, the KL Escrowed Funds will be returned to KL and the KL Subscription Receipts will be cancelled.
In connection with the KL Financing, Conquest has granted Kirkland Lake certain investor rights,
so long as Kirkland Lake holds at least 5% of the outstanding shares of Conquest, including the right to nominate one director to the board of Conquest,
the pre-emptive right to participate pro-rata in any future financings by the Company, and a condition that the Company will not encumber any of its properties
with any new third party royalty agreements without the prior written approval of Kirkland Lake, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld.
$3,110,000 Non-Brokered Financing
In connection with the Non-Brokered Financing, Conquest has issued 21,105,266 subscription receipts at a price of $0.12 each
(the "Non-Brokered HD Subscription Receipts"), for gross proceeds of $2,532,631 and 3,880,004 subscription receipts at a price of $0.15 each
(the "Non-Brokered FT Subscription Receipts"), for gross proceeds of $582,000. Each Non-Brokered HD Subscription Receipt entitles the holder
to acquire one unit of Conquest (a "Non-Brokered Unit"), for no additional consideration. Each Non-Brokered Unit consists of one share of Conquest
(as it exists following the Consolidation) and one-half of one Warrant.
Each Non-Brokered FT Subscription Receipt entitles the holder to acquire one flow-through share (an "FT Share")
of Conquest (as it exists after giving effect to the Consolidation, for no additional consideration.
An insider of Conquest subscribed for 200,000 Non-Brokered FT Subscription Receipts for gross proceeds of $30,000.
The gross proceeds of the Non-Brokered Financing have been deposited in escrow (the "Non-Brokered Escrowed Funds").
The Non-Brokered HD Subscription Receipts will automatically convert into Non-Brokered Units, the Non-Brokered FT Subscription Receipts
will automatically convert into FT Shares and the Non-Brokered Escrowed Funds will be released to Conquest upon the satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions.
In the event that the Escrow Release Conditions are not satisfied by November 30, 2020, the Non-Brokered Escrowed Funds will be returned to the subscribers
for Non-Brokered HD Subscription Receipts and Non-Brokered FT Subscription Receipts (collectively,
the "Non-Brokered Subscription Receipts") and the Non-Brokered Subscription Receipts will be cancelled.
Upon completion of the Acquisition and conversion of the KL Subscription Receipts into KL Units (the "Escrow Deadline")
and Non-Brokered Subscription Receipts into Non-Brokered Units and FT Shares, Kirkland Lake will hold approximately 8% of Conquest's then outstanding shares,
and 9.6% of Conquest's shares on a partially diluted basis, assuming no further issuances of securities by Conquest prior to such date.
All securities issued and issuable in connection with the KL Financing and the Non-Brokered Financing are subject to a hold period of four months
and one day from the closing date of such financings, expiring on January 9, 2021 and January 16, 2021, respectively.
Finders fees in the total amount of $145,000 cash will be paid to certain arms-length parties for assisting in the Non-Brokered Financing.
PowerOne Capital Markets Limited acted as finder in connection with a portion of the Non-Brokered Financing and has been appointed to
act as a financial advisor to Conquest to provide ongoing financial advisory and consulting services.
Conquest has agreed to grant PowerOne 750,000 stock options under the Company's stock option plan,
each exercisable at a price of $0.13 to acquire one share of Conquest (after giving effect to the Consolidation),
for a period of two years, subject to completion of the Acquisition. PowerOne, an Exempt Market Dealer, is a long-term investor focused
on providing early stage capital and advisory services to emerging growth companies.
Acquisition of Canadian Continental Exploration Corp.
Subject to final acceptance of the TSXV, the Acquisition is expected to close immediately following a special meeting of shareholders of CCEC, scheduled to be held on September 23, 2020.
Pursuant to the Acquisition, Conquest will issue 40,306,667 shares of Conquest (after giving effect to the Consolidation) to the shareholders of CCEC,
on the basis of one share for each share of CCEC held. Conquest will also issue 2,900,000 options (the "Replacement Options"),
under the Company's stock option plan in replacement of existing options currently outstanding in CCEC.
Each Replacement Option will be exercisable at $0.15 to acquire one share of Conquest (after giving effect to the Consolidation) and expire in September 2021.
CCEC holds an extensive package of mining claims and has approximately $900,000 in a combination of cash and marketable securities. See Conquest News Releases July 16, August 7, and August 27, 2020.
Upon completion of the Acquisition, and release of the KL Escrow Funds and Non-Brokered Escrowed Funds to Conquest,
Conquest is expected to have a total of approximately $5,200,000 in available funds to pursue its planned drilling and exploration activities, of which approximately $800,000 will be flow through funds.
Final acceptance of the Acquisition by the TSXV is subject fulfilling the requirements of the TSXV.
The CCEC land package consists of almost 10,000 hectares of
underexplored mining lands in Northern Ontario, which the Company
believes are highly prospective for precious and base metals.
The land package includes the Teckmag1 and Eaglerock claims, which
immediately surround Conquest's Golden Rose Property, situated in Afton
and Scholes townships at Emerald Lake approximately 65 km northeast of
When combined with the Company's current land holdings, Conquest will
control over 130 square kilometers making it one of the largest land
holders in the Temagami Mining Camp area.
Conquest's Golden Rose Property
Conquest's Golden Rose Property encompasses patented and staked mining claims measuring 770 hectares in size that encompass the
former Golden Rose gold mine and highly prospective North and South banded iron formations at Emerald Lake. The Golden Rose gold mine
(which is currently flooded) consists of more than six kilometres of underground workings, as well as a three (3) compartment, 228-metre-deep shaft,
and a modern decline ramp from surface to the 6th level of the mine. An inclined winze connects the 6th and 7th levels to the 5th level of the mine.
It is reported that between 1935 and 1941, mining operations at the Golden Rose gold mine by Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of Canada, Limited
(Cominco) produced 46,000 ounces of gold from structurally controlled, shallow to steeply dipping, high-grade quartz-pyrite veins, hosted almost exclusively
in an east-west trending Banded Iron Formation (BIF). The property largely lay dormant from 1941 to 1982, when exploration resumed.
Diamond drilling of the mine sequence stratigraphy in 1984 intersected numerous high-grade gold intercepts. This drill campaign led to reopening and mine
development by Noramco between 1986-87 which included widening of the mine adit and portal down to the 600-foot level. Minor gold production of approximately 7,000 oz. was reported.
Further, surface drilling between 1984-2011 by a previous operator identified mineralization lying adjacent to known underground development.
It was reported by the previous operator that diamond drilling between 2009-2011 intersected gold grades as high as 155.7 grams of gold per tonne over 1.82 metres.
However, the potential quantity and grade is conceptual in nature and Conquest has not undertaken sufficient exploration to define
a mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the targets being delineated as a mineral resource.
At the annual and special meeting of shareholders held on August 31, 2020, Conquest shareholders approved the Consolidation.
It is intended that Articles of Amendment in prescribed form will be filed with the Director under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the "OBCA")
immediately prior to completion of the Acquisition and such Articles of Amendment will become effective upon the issuance by the Director under the OBCA of a Certificate of Amendment.
See Conquest News Release August 31, 2020.
The TSXV has conditionally approved the Consolidation subject to the Company fulfilling all the conditions of the TSXV in respect of the Consolidation.
Conquest Resources Limited, incorporated in 1945, is a mineral exploration company that is exploring for gold on mineral properties in Ontario.
Conquest holds a 100% interest in the Golden Rose Project,acquired in December 2017, located at Emerald Lake approximately 65 kilometres northeast of Sudbury, Ontario,
which hosts the former Golden Rose Gold Mine and is underlain by highly prospective Abitibi greenstone geology along a strike length of seventeen (17) kilometres.
The property is located deep within the regionally large, unexplained Emerald Lake (Temagami) Anomaly which closely resembles the magnetic signature of the adjacent Sudbury Basin.
Conquest also holds a 100% interest in the Alexander Gold Property located immediately east of the
Red Lake and Campbell mines in the heart of the Red Lake Gold Camp on the important "Mine Trend" regional structure.
Conquest's property is almost entirely surrounded by Evolution Mining land holdings.
In addition, Conquest owns a 100% interest in the Smith Lake Gold Property of six patented claims and 181 staked mining claims to the north,
west and south of the former Renabie Gold Mine in Rennie Township in northern Ontario that had reported gold production of over 1,000,000 ounces.

GOLD INDUSTRIAL METALS & MINERALS
The Sudbury Basin: Ontario’s trillion dollar mining camp
Last month, I had the pleasure of participating in the 16th Annual Sudbury Mining Week -
Jun 18, 2008 10:22 PM By: Sudbury.com Staff
It was appropriate to celebrate Mining Week in Canada, and especially in Sudbury –
one of the most prolific mining camps in the world. In Canada,
mining contributes $40 billion dollars or 5 per cent of
Canada’s GDP every year and pays $4.7 billion in corporate taxes alone.
This industry directly employs 370,000 Canadians and
is the largest private sector employer of Aboriginals.
Canada remains the leading source of new capital for
the global mining industry accounting for 36 per cent
of the $53 billion raised in 2007 or net $19 billion.
As a mining engineer who has spent his career in Africa,
the United Sates and Latin America, I can confirm that there
are few places in the world where mining is embraced and
supported as it is in Sudbury.
However, even in Sudbury, it is important that the mining industry support events such as Mining Week to communicate with local communities and, perhaps, persuade some young people to consider this industry as a future career choice.
The Sudbury area is a 1.85 billion year old meteorite impact crater and the first mineral discoveries were made here in 1883.
Let me give you a few numbers about;
Sudbury which may
surprise even local residents.
The total ore mined to date in Sudbury is
approximately 1.7 billion tonnes with
40 billion pounds of nickel,
36 billion pounds of copper,
70 million ounces of platinum, palladium and
gold and 283 million ounces of silver recovered.
At today’s commodity prices, total historic production
and current known reserves in Sudbury represent a
one trillion dollar value.
The community is the richest mining district in
North America and among the top ten most important
Sudbury accounts for about half the mining activity in Ontario, Canada’s largest mineral producing province.
The value of Ontario’s mining sector is about
$10 billion annually (2007 figures).
I think these numbers give you some idea of what an
incredible mining area Sudbury is and the impact
it has had on the wealth, not only of the City of
Greater Sudbury, but of Ontario and Canada.
In addition to exploration for gold at
The Golden Rose Gold Mine proiect site,

Conquest said two other styles of economic mineral deposits have been identified
within the enlarged Sudbury land package....
Golden Rose Mine- Contains a reserve
2.4 million tonnes at 0.26 ounces of gold a tonne that contains 619,000 ounces of gold.

Mining Companies Flock To Stake Claims
In Red Lake After Recent Gold Strikes In That Area
Conquest's Alexander Property comprises 27 patented claims
Goldcorp's Red Lake mine.
Published: July 28, 2020 at 8:32 a.m. ET
Alexander Gold Project
Red Lake, Ontario
is claimed by Goldcorp to be
the richest gold mine in the world
The Alexander Property is situated within 2 kilometres of more than
28 million ounces of gold from past production and current resources
and within 400 metres of Goldcorp’s Far East Zone gold discovery.
The Alexander Property is of ample size to accommodate a high-grade
gold deposit at depth as repetition of the adjacent deposits at
Goldcorp’s Red Lake gold mine.
The stratigraphy under the property remains essentially untested
below 700 metres depth.
The richest gold bearing ore zones exist below a vertical depth of
1,300 metres in the High Grade Zone at
the Goldcorp Red Lake gold mine which is less
than 800 metres from the property boundary.
Conquest's target on the Alexander claims is an extension,
or repetition, of the mineralization at the Red Lake mine.
The Red Lake mine is claimed by Goldcorp to be
the richest gold mine in the world with
approximately 28,000,000 ounces of historic
production and current reserves.
Location and Property Description
Conquest's Alexander Property comprises 27 patented claims
covering 448 hectares (1,107 acres) adjoining
Goldcorp's Red Lake mine.
Conquest’s land is situated just beyond the security gate at
Goldcorp’s Red Lake gold mine and is almost completely
surrounded by Goldcorp's Red Lake mine property.
The Alexander claim holdings are patented and do not
require any annual minimum expenditures, other than
nominal property taxes.

'The junior with the best address in the Red Lake District'
Welcome to Conquest Resources Limited
Conquest Resources Limited is a Toronto, Canada based public company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV) under the symbol "CQR". The Company's primary focus is to enhance shareholder value by identifying, exploring and developing world class gold or other mineral projects in Canada and North America.
Conquest holds several advanced stage gold properties in the Province of Ontario, including the strategically important Alexander Project, located in the heart of northwestern Ontario's Red Lake gold mining district. The Alexander Property is situated immediately to the east of Goldcorp's high grade Red Lake mine at Balmertown and has been independently called "the best located exploration property in the Red Lake Gold Camp."
Conquest has two projects located in the Detour Lake gold mining district of the Northern Abitibi Greenstone Belt, referred to as the Aurora Gold and Sunday Lake Projects. The properties are immediately adjacent to the development project of Detour Gold Inc. who are planning a "Super Open Pit" to access a reported 13.2 million ounce gold resource.
Conquest's King Bay Property located at Sturgeon Lake, Ontario was partially tested by winter drilling in 2006, 2007 and 2008. Visible gold together with significant gold assays were encountered leading to the conclusion that a source of the high grade gold present in three well defined boulder trains has been located within an altered quartz-porphyry body under King Bay.
Conquest's Smith Lake Property, is located immediately north of the former Renabie gold mine in Leeson Twp.

Aurora Project, Detour Lake, Ontario
The Aurora property is situated along strike from and to the south of the Detour mine area which is subject to a very significant development project of Detour Gold Corp. who are planning a "Super Open Pit" to access a reported 13.2 million ounce gold resource. For full project information.
King Bay Project, Sturgeon Lake, Ontario
Conquest has carried out limited drill programs to test for a source of high grade gold (maximum value 521.1 gm/t gold; average 18.9gm/t gold) found in three boulder trains on the south side of King Bay. Results of this drilling suggest that the location of the Western Boulder train has been discovered under the waters of King Bay. However, a source for the higher grade Central and Eastern Boulder Trains remains elusive and further work will be required to pin point a source area. For full project information.
Smith Lake Project, Missanabie, Ontario
Geological mapping, prospecting and geochemical sampling in 2004 outlined possible extensions to known zone of high grade gold (1980s drilling). For full project information.
The Red Lake Gold Mine is composed of two operating complexes: the Red Lake Complex and the Campbell Complex. Red Lake Gold mine is Canada’s largest gold mine, and in 2008 produced 629,000 ounces. It is also one of the world’s richest gold mines and lowest cost producers.
