O3 Mining Issues Clarification on Previous Technical Disclosure
March 31, 2023
TSXV:OIII | OTCQX:OIIIF – O3 Mining
TORONTO, March 31, 2023 /CNW/ – O3 Mining Inc. (TSXV: OIII) (OTCQX: OIIIF) ("O3 Mining" or the "Company") is issuing this new release as a result of a continuous disclosure review by the Ontario Securities Commission, to clarify its disclosure regarding certain statements made in an interview conducted at the Québec Mining Conference (2021).
The Company wishes to retract the statement it made at the Conference about having "400,000 oz according to our PEM category", as such statement does not comply with the disclosure requirements of National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI-43-101"). The Company intended to disclose the volume drilled at a distance of 160 metres.
However, the Company’s retracted disclosure about a "PEM category" (potential economic material category) did not use the appropriate categories of mineral resources (i.e., inferred, indicated and measured mineral resources) prescribed by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum and required under Section 1.2 of NI 43-101. The Company advises readers not to rely on such retracted disclosure.
Louis Gariepy, Vice President of Exploration of the Corporation, who is a "qualified person" within the meaning of NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical content in this news release.
