VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 1, 2022 / Musk Metals Corp. ("Musk Metals") ("Musk" or the "Company") (CSE:MUSK) (OTC PINK:EMSKF) (FSE:1I30) is pleased to announce it has entered into an Option Agreement (the "Option") with Zeal Exploration Inc. ("Zeal") to earn up to 100% interest in the Lawyers East, West and North properties (the "Properties") located in BC's famous "Golden Horseshoe" region contiguous to Benchmark Metal's (BNCH - TSX.V) "Lawyers" Gold and Silver Project as well as Thesis Gold's (TAU - TSX.V) Ranch Project that both recently reported significant drilling intercepts and extensive ongoing drilling campaigns.
The Properties cover approximately 15,469 acres. These prospective properties are on trend with several mines found in the region, located at the south-eastern side of Benchmarks' "Lawyers" property, below TDG Gold Corp's "Baker" Mine and "Shasta" Mine and in line with the "Kemess" Mine further Southeast. Mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on the Properties.
Zeal intends on ustilizing a compilation of historic work and airborne survey data, recently flown by Musk Metals to plan a 2022 exploration program. This exploration program will be designed to complement historic work and recent discoveries in the area and will be focused on geologic mapping and prospecting the properties for highly prospective and mineralized areas and may include geochemical surveying. Samples will be taken from mineralized areas and analyzed for precious metals content shortly after field work is completed.

Should the Properties collectively achieve an estimate of mineral resources (a "Resource Estimate") prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Properties ("NI 43-101") by a Qualified Person (as defined in NI 43-101) in the measured and indicated category with 250,000- 1,000,000 ounces of gold (the "Target Resource Estimate"), and provided the Optionee has exercised the Second Option, the Optionee will pay to the Optionor $1.00 CAD per ounce of gold in cash, shares or a combination of cash and shares at the Optionee's election within 180 days of completion of the Resource Estimate up to a maximum aggregate payment $1,000,000 in cash and/or shares. After the Optionee's exercise of the Second Option, the Optionee and Optionor agree that either party may request a Resource Estimate be performed within 180 days of such request. Subsequent Resource Estimates shall be performed (i) at any time at the option of the Optionee, or (ii) at the request of the Optionor within 180 days of the earlier of the completion of any drill program with at least 20,000 meters of drilling or after three years has elapsed since the previous Resource Estimate, provided exploration work has occurred since the last Resource Estimate and the claims have not been abandoned. The Optionee shall pay for the preparation of the first Resource Estimate and any further Resource Estimates prepared at the Optionee's option pursuant to subsection (i). The Optionor shall reimburse the Optionee for 50% of the cost of any Resource Estimate prepared at the Optionee's request pursuant to subsection (ii). The Optionee and Optionor acknowledge that the Target Resource Estimate may be achieved over multiple years. For greater certainty, any amounts owing to the Optionor pursuant to a subsequent Resource Estimate under this paragraph 3.5 shall be calculated by subtracting the ounces of gold under the prior Resource Estimate or Resources Estimates from the ounces of gold under the subsequent Resource Estimate (i.e. if the prior Resource Estimate was 250,000 ounces of gold and a subsequent Resource Estimate is 300,000 ounces of gold, the amount owing to the Optionor shall be $50,000).
