  • Preliminary economic assessment (PEA) on Montauban resource to be completed in Spring 2022

The Montauban Site Opportunity

  • With the right support and investment, a contaminated site can be an opportunity for companies that can process mine tailings while restoring the sites back to a natural “green” state.
  • This includes the Montauban site, which has the status of an abandoned site since the companies responsible for the contamination no longer exist leaving the Province liable for restoration.
  • There are numerous other abandoned mining and mining exploration sites in Quebec with contaminated tailings where this process could be repeated.
  • Significant anticipated revenues provide capital to advance Secova’s other exploration properties.

Secova's Montauban Business Model

Secova has a viable solution, which encompasses the restoration of contaminated tailings sites and the extraction of precious metals including gold and silver as well as industrial minerals such as mica, and directing a portion of anticipated profits to further drilling and exploration of the Eagle River project.

Work Completed To Date by Secova

  • Over $9M has been invested in developing the Montauban opportunity
  • Secova has obtained all the required permits to restore this contaminated site and has signed the required protocols with the municipality of Notre-Dame-de-Montauban
  • The Company has completed all the infrastructures including access roads, a 1,3 km long hydro power line, and a 16,000 SF milling facility
  • Working with Alphard Engineering in Montreal, Secova has completed the engineering design for the processing plant
  • The Company has sourced and acquired 50% of the necessary milling equipment required for the commercial production on the Montauban Property

Project Investment Objectives

  • Secure private and public sector financing to begin production within six to nine months
  • Process mining residues, recover the precious metals (gold, silver and industrial metal muscovite (mica)) and restore the site (decontaminate) through treatment and neutralization
  • Upgrade the processing mill to accommodate crushing and grinding facilities to be able to mine and process the near surface mineralized zones

(2) Eagle River Project, Quebec

  • Acquired 386 claims (21,472 hectares) prior to a major staking rush in the Urban-Barry district
  • Located south-east of Osisko's Windfall Lake project

  • Osisko is currently developing its Windfall lake property
  • Secova has completed its Phase 1 Exploration Program – till results pending
  • Recently acquired 10 additional claims on strike

News Update

On June 29, 2022, Secova Metals Corp. announced that the Company has engaged Soderholm Maritime Services Inc. ("Soderholm") to conduct the initial underwater sampling programme at Secova's Ottawa River project. Soderholm is one of the leading underwater service specialists in Canada and has been in operations since 1979. Their reputation for exceptional workmanship and dependable scheduling makes Soderholm a perfect partner for Secova on its Ottawa River Project.

The first phase of Secova's operations at the Ottawa River site will be an eight (8) day underwater work programme beginning on July 18 th . Secova's joint-venture partner, Nepean Bay Joint Venture Inc. has completed an extensive bathymetric survey to identify high priority sample areas. During this initial phase it is Secova's intention to collect several individual 1 Kg samples as well as bulk samples from previously identified potential targets.

On June 16, 2022, Secova Metals Corp. has named Ron Perry and Michel Fontaine to its advisory board. These two individuals have experience in the mining sector as well as broad business acumen in general. Their specific expertise in resource production will be an enormous asset for Secova.

On June 15, 2022, Secova Metals Corp. provided the following update on the status of the Preliminary Economic Assessment (the "PEA") on the entire tailings deposit at Montauban.

The Company engaged Longford Exploration Services Limited ("Longford") to oversee the project and conduct a 275-hole drill program on the extensive tailings deposits at Montauban. The drill program announced on March 1, 2022, is complete and approximately 750 samples have been sent to ALS Limited ("ALS") in Montreal for assaying. Due to the large number of assays, their physical size and protracted drying time, processing the samples and obtaining the assay results are taking longer than anticipated. However, ALS has assured Longford that all data should be delivered by the middle of July.

This data will then be shared with BBA Engineering Ltd. ("BBA") who have been contracted to provide an updated NI 43-101 and a related PEA. The engagement with BBA includes:

  • Drill planning (completed)
  • Sites visits (ongoing)
  • Mineral Resource estimate (pending)
  • PEA planning (ongoing)
  • Secova Metals Corp. has appointed Martin Prescott as an independent director.

On June 09, 2022, Secova Metals Corp. has appointed Martin Prescott as an independent director. Mr. Prescott has over 25 years of experience relating to stock market trading, blockchain and investment experience. He is a serial entrepreneur and public speaker, educating business leaders and investors about capital market Environmental, Social and Governance ("ESG") investments and blockchain technologies.

On June 08, 2022, Secova Metals Corp. has signed an option agreement with Nepean Bay Joint Venture Inc. (NBJV). NBJV is the legal and beneficial owner of the land use permit of 2.6 hectares within the bed of the Ottawa River and the owner of any salable residuals from the land use permit ("LUP" or "the Ottawa River Project").

Under the Option Agreement, NBJV grants Secova the right to earn 50% interests in the Ottawa River Project. Secova is required under the terms of the Option Agreement to pay to NBJV $50,000 upon signing of the Option Agreement as well as to fulfill expenditure requirements for the Ottawa River Project. The parties agreed that Secova will be the operator of the Ottawa River Project.

On June 02, 2022, Secova Metals Corp. has appointed Jean Yves Therien as chief executive officer of the company, effective immediately.

Mr. Therien has more than 12 years of senior management experience in mining and green mining technologies. Mr. Therien was instrumental in the restructuring of G.E.T.T.

On March 1, 2022, Secova Metals Corp. announced that it has mobilized a sonic drill rig to the Montauban gold project in order to complete a resource definition drilling program.

The drilling program comprises roughly 275 holes at 25-metre spacings and at depths of up to 15 m. The focus of the exploration will be on all five tailings sites on the property, including the Montauban United site, which has not been previously evaluated. The upcoming program will build upon previous campaigns with a higher density of holes and a full analytical suite leading to an even higher degree of confidence in the amount of metals contained.

Concurrent to the sonic drilling, a geophysical crew will conduct a combination of seismic refraction and ground-penetrating radar surveys to accurately delineate the depth of the tailings for a more precise volumetric measurement.

On February 8, 2022, Secova Metals Corp. announced that it has filed an independent NI 43-101 technical report on its Montauban Project.
