Montreal, Quebec--(Newsfile Corp. - August 17, 2023) - Vanstar Mining Resources Inc. (TSXV: VSR) (OTCQX: VMNGF) (FSE: 1V8) ("Vanstar", or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Mosaic Minerals Corporation ("Mosaic") whereby Mosaic will earn into Vanstar's Amanda property, located approximately 65 km northeast of the town of Namaska, Quebec.

Mosaic will explore the Amanda project for its lithium and gold potential. In addition to several gold showings identified historically by prospecting and drilling, the Amanda property hosts numerous surface pegmatites containing various minerals associated with the possible presence of spodumene, such as beryl, caesium, tantalum and rubidium. The presence of accessory minerals such as muscovite, garnet and tourmaline in the vicinity of these pegmatites is also described in various reports by the Ministère de l'Énergie et des Richesses naturelles du Québec (MERN).

J.C. St-Amour, President and CEO, said "This agreement with Mosaic will allow a significant amount of exploration work on the Amanda project at no cost to Vanstar. Shareholders will continue to maximize their exposure to the value in the Nelligan project while having exposure to the exploration upside generate by exploration activities at Amanda."

Following surface prospecting, MERN reported the presence of a minimum of 17 pegmatites on the Amanda property. Also, following analysis of historical drill logs from the Amanda project, the Company has identified the presence of other unrecorded pegmatites, in areas where none were noted on surface.

A rock sample taken from one of the 1 km-long pegmatites surveyed on surface by MERN returned 31 ppm Li, 17 ppm Be, 34 ppm Cs, 16 ppm Ta and 1,000 ppm Rb. In the western part of this pegmatite, drill hole AC 2010-12, located approximately 50 metres from the western edge of the Amanda property, intersected it, and the presence of pegmatites and spodumene was noted by the project's geologist. Based on historical data, no analysis has been performed to verify the presence of lithium in most of the pegmatites visited by MERN or in the drill holes.

Located for the most part near iron formations, these holes were designed to test various surface showings for their gold potential. In addition to intersecting several significant gold values at and near surface, these holes intersected several pegmatites that were not listed by MERN.

Gold Showings

The Amanda gold project was discovered in the 1990s. A series of prospecting and channel sampling campaigns followed by drilling identified several significant gold zones, including the Arianne, Kog, Ti-Beu and Rock'n Hammer showings.

Surface sampling and drilling carried out at the time were specifically designed to test the gold potential of the Amanda project. Several of them revealed the presence of gold near surface and at depth.

Here are some results from the main gold showings:

Hole Grade g/t Au Thickness (m) Showing
AC-97-31 2.42 g/t Au 4 m Arianne
and 5.44 g/t Au 7 m Arianne
including 12.11 g/t Au 3 m
AC-02-01 1.15 g/t Au 18 m Arianne
AC-02-05 0.52 g/t Au 11.37 m Rock'n Hammer
including 1.36 g/t Au 2 m
Trenches Grade g/t Au Thickness (m) Showing
TR-97-01 0.6 g/t Au more than 8.3 m Arianne
and 1.07 g/t Au 7 m Arianne
TR-97-03 1.35g/t Au 11 m Ti Beu
including 5.2 g/t Au 2 m
TR-97-04b 1.69 g/t Au 13.8 m Kog
and 5.17 g/t Au 2.9 m Kog
and 8.34 g/t Au 1.6 m Kog


Under the terms of the agreement, Mosaic may acquire an initial 50% interest in exchange for $1 million in exploration expenditures and the issuance of 4 million shares to Vanstar over the next three years. Expenditure commitments would be as follows:

  • $250,000, on or before the first anniversary:
  • $250,000, on or before the second anniversary; and
  • $500,000 on or before the third anniversary.

Share issuances will be as follows:

  • 1,000,000 shares five business days after the Effective Date;
  • 1,000,000 shares five business days after the first anniversary of the Effective Date; and
  • 2,000,000 shares five business days after the second anniversary of the Effective Date.

Once the $1,000,000 in expenditures are completed and the shares issued, Mosaic will have earned 50% of the project. Vanstar would then have the option to participate in a 50-50 joint venture or allow Mosaic to acquire an additional 30% interest in exchange for filing a 43-101 resource report by the end of 2030. Mosaic will be the operator of the project. The transaction is subject to regulatory approval.

Natural resources investments are generally volatile, with higher headline risk than other sectors. They tend to be more sensitive to economic data, political and regulatory events, and underlying commodity prices. The prices of natural resources investments are influenced by factors such as the costs of underlying commodities like oil, gas, metals, and coal. These investments may trade on various exchanges and experience price fluctuations due to short-term demand, supply, and investment flows.

Natural resource investments often respond more sensitively to global events and economic data, including natural disasters, political turmoil, pandemics, or the release of employment data.

Investing in foreign markets may carry greater risks than domestic markets, including political, currency, economic, and market risks. It is essential to evaluate if trading in low-priced and international securities is appropriate for your circumstances and financial resources. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

No investment process is risk-free, and profitability is not guaranteed; investors may lose their entire investment. No investment strategy or risk management technique can guarantee returns or eliminate risk in any market environment. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against loss. Investing in foreign securities involves risks not associated with domestic investments, such as currency fluctuations, political and economic instability, and differing accounting standards, potentially leading to greater share price volatility. The prices of small- and mid-cap company stocks generally experience higher volatility than large-company stocks and may involve higher risks. Smaller companies may lack the management expertise, financial resources, product diversification, and competitive strengths needed to withstand adverse economic conditions.
