Murchison is a Canadian‐based exploration company focused on the exploration and development of the 100%-owned Brabant Lake zinc-copper-silver project in north‐central Saskatchewan. The Company also owns 100% of the Haut Plateau de la Manicouagan (HPM) nickel-copper-cobalt project in Quebec and holds an option to earn 100% interest in the Barraute-Landrienne base-metals exploration project also located in Quebec, north of Val d'Or.

Projects in Hand

(1) Brabant Lake Zinc-Copper-Silver Project, Saskatchewan

Murchison's 100%-owned Brabant Lake Project is located 175 kilometres northeast of La Ronge, Saskatchewan, and approximately three kilometres from the community of Brabant Lake. The area is accessed year-round via provincial Highway 102 and is serviced by a power grid.

The Project consists of one mining lease, which hosts the Brabant-McKenzie VMS deposit, and additional mineral claims that total 627 square kilometres, extending over 57 kilometres of strike length over favourable geological horizons, multiple known mineral showings and identified geophysical conductors.

The Brabant-McKenzie VMS deposit has National Instrument 43-101 resources of:

  • Indicated: 2.1 million tonnes at 7.08% zinc, 0.69% copper, 0.49% lead, 39.60 g/t silver, 9.98% ZnEq;
  • Inferred: 7.6 million tonnes at 4.45% zinc, 0.57% copper, 0.19% lead, 18.40 g/t silver, 6.29% ZnEq.

The Brabant-McKenzie VMS deposit is open in all directions

  • Betty Zone (identified by the 2021 winter drill program): After the two recent drill holes hit the edge of a mineralized system, a downhole geophysics program identified a 700 m x 200 m conductive body. Further drilling planned.
  • Initiated metallurgy study on the Brabant-McKenzie deposit in order to optimize mineral recoveries. Preliminary tests show favourable results.
  • Complete infill drilling to convert inferred resources to indicated, and then complete a preliminary economic assessment (PEA).

(2) Haut Plateau de la Manicouagan (HPM) Nickel-Copper-Cobalt Project, Québec

The 100%-owned 134 sq. km HPM property is located between Baie-Comeau and Fermont, Québec, about 20 kilometres from an all-season road connecting the two communities. The HPM property lies within the Manicouagan Metamorphic Complex and hosts several nickel-copper-cobalt occurrences. The Project is in close proximity to roads and rail.

The HPM property covers the prospective geological unit that hosts significant nickel, copper and cobalt mineralization identified by a total of 32 diamond drill holes (6,469 metres) completed in 2001/2002 and 2008.

  • Best drill assay at Barre de Fer target: 43.18 m of 1.74% nickel, 0.90% copper and 904 ppm cobalt (5.5% Cu equivalent)
  • Identified 54 EM conductors in a recent VTEM survey. Follow-up groundwork has been initiated
  • Sampling at PYC target confirms the presence of Ni-Cu-Co over 1.7 km strike
  • 10 nickel/copper/cobalt bearing gossan areas identified
  • Exploration drilling planned for late Q3.

(3) Barraute-Landrienne Base Metals Project, Québec

  • Option to earn 100% in 75 mineral claims covering 2,377 hectares
  • 60 km north of Val-d'Or, and about 4 km northwest of the municipality of Barraute
  • 2 km away from the 15.7 Mt zinc-silver Abcourt-Barvue deposit
  • Potential to host some of the best untested geological/geophysical base-metal targets in the area
  • All the targets are drill ready.

Investment Highlights

  • Experienced management and board with proven success record. President and CEO sold Pangea Goldfields Inc. to Barrick Gold Corporation for $204 million in 2000 and arranged US$220 million in funding for the Kwale Mineral Sands project in Kenya.
  • Projects located in two of the best mining jurisdictions in the world, Saskatchewan and Quebec, surrounded by excellent infrastructure.
  • Murchison positions itself as a key mining player in the green energy revolution with projects that provide exposure to critical minerals including Cobalt, Copper, Silver, Nickel, Graphite and Zinc.
  • Brabant-McKenzie, located in a similar geological environment as the Flin Flon, Lalor Lake, Lyn Lake and Snow Lake deposits, is a high-grade VMS deposit. The project also has significant exploration upsides and remains open for expansion.
  • The newly acquired properties located in the Barraute-Landrienne mining camp in Quebec, are believed to host some of the best untested geological/geophysical base-metal targets in the area. All the targets are drill ready.
  • Huge land package in Saskatchewan covering an area of 627 sq. km highly prospective for VMS-type deposits and the potential to identify high-grade strata-bound metasedimentary gold deposits resembling the Greywackes, North Lake, and numerous other known gold deposits in the region.
  • Murchison has a close and supportive relationship with local communities and governments.
  • The best assay at the HPM Project shows high-grade drill intercepts including 1.74% Ni, 0.9% Cu and 0.09% Co over 43.2 m at Barre de Fer. Significant tonnage potential also exists on the PYC target. The Project has at least 10 gossan exploration targets that show similarities to the renowned Voisey's Bay nickel mine and has excellent potential for discoveries.

On April 04, 2022, Murchison Minerals Ltd. has released the results from the recently completed recompilation and modelling of holes drilled at the Barre de Fer (BDF) zone on the 100-per-cent-owned HPM (Haut-Plateau de la Manicouagan) project, located in Quebec. Based on these results the Company is advancing a strategy to expand and delineate the BDF Zone and surrounding prospective areas during this summer's planned drill program. In support of these plans, the Company is also pleased to announce that it has awarded the summer drilling contract, on the HPM property, to Logan Drilling.

On March 23, 2022, following the press release dated March 17, 2022, the TSX Venture Exchange has provided conditional approval of Murchison Minerals Ltd.'s early warrant incentive program. The terms and conditions of the program and the method of exercising warrants pursuant to the program are set forth in a letter that has been posted on SEDAR and is available on the company's website.

On March 17, 2022, Murchison Minerals Ltd. has created a warrant exercise incentive program designed to encourage the early exercise of up to 27,118,788 of its outstanding unlisted warrants exercisable for common shares of the company. The warrants are currently exercisable as follows: (i) five million warrants at a price of 12 cents per common share expiring on Sept. 5, 2022; and (ii) 22,118,788 warrants at a price of 12 cents expiring on Oct. 21, 2022.

Under the Program, the Company is offering an inducement to each Warrant holder that exercises their Warrants prior to April 15, 2022 (the "Early Exercise Period"), by the issuance of one-half of an additional common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, an "Incentive Warrant") for each warrant early exercised.

On August 16, 2021, Murchison Minerals Ltd. announced that it has received assay results from its June prospecting program at the PYC target area on the HPM (Haut-Plateau de la Manicouagan) property in Quebec. These results confirm widespread nickel-copper-cobalt surface mineralization across the entirety of the traced 1.7 km strike length of sulphide mineralization. The results are from grab samples and short backpack drill core samples, featuring assays as high as 1.27% Nickel Equivalent or 2.59% Copper Equivalent (0.79% Ni, 0.14% Cu, 0.15% Co) from 0.83 metres of backpack drill core. The assay results also confirm mineralization south-east of the PYC target at the newly discovered Dix showing, which assayed as high as 0.90% Nickel Equivalent or 1.83% Copper Equivalent (0.44% Ni, 0.39% Cu, 0.10% Co) from 0.45 metre of backpack drill core.

On August 10, 2021, Murchison Minerals Ltd. announced excellent preliminary metallurgical results from its Brabant-McKenzie zinc-copper-silver deposit in Saskatchewan. The results indicate that a simple flotation test using a coarse grind with a rougher and scavenger circuit was able to upgrade the zinc grade from 9.13% to 27% with a 98% recovery.
