For more information about this press release:
The Corporation is launching the Environmental Impact Assessment and Review (EIAR) process with the goal of putting its Wasamac gold deposit into production.
In December 2018, Monarch completed a positive feasibility study on Wasamac (based on a gold price of US$1,300 per ounce) with the following results:
Estimated average annual production of 142,000 ounces of gold over 11 years
Pre-tax net present value (NPV) of $522 million
Pre-tax internal rate of return (IRR) of 23.6%
Cash production cost of US$550 per ounce.
The proposed project will be based on the Mining 4.0 concept that combines new technologies and respect for the environment, in particular through the Rail-Veyor® electrically powered, remote-controlled underground haulage system.
Wasamac is a large-scale gold project that could potentially create several hundred high-quality jobs in the Abitibi region, Quebec.
Wasamac was selected as a pilot project by the Government of Quebec to be supported throughout the permitting process by the interdepartmental table announced by Minister Julien on November 19, 2019. The objective is to set up a mining project support service, harmonize processes between the various ministries to avoid duplication and thus accelerate the processing of authorizations required to start a mining project that respects best environmental practices.
MONTREAL, QC / ACCESSWIRE / November 20, 2019 / MONARCH GOLD CORPORATION ("Monarch" or the "Corporation") (TSX:MQR) (OTC PINK:MRQRF) (FRANKFURT:MR7) is pleased to announce that it has filed a project notice today with Quebec's Ministry of the Environment and the Fight Against Climate Change (MELCC) for its wholly-owned Wasamac gold project, located 15 km west of Rouyn-Noranda in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region of Quebec. The project notice is the first step in the mining permit application process, which generally takes 18 to 24 months.
"Today marks a significant milestone in Monarch's history with the launch of the permitting process for production at the Wasamac property," said Jean-Marc Lacoste, President and Chief Executive Officer of Monarch. "Several factors led us to this decision, including the positive feasibility study conducted in December 2018, the strong gold market and the favourable financing and partnership climate for this type of project. In addition, Wasamac is expected to create more than 400 jobs during the construction stage and some 300 jobs once the mine goes into production. Monarch also intends to make Wasamac a Mining 4.0 project, combining new technologies and respect for the environment. The proposed project will feature new production technologies such as the Rail-Veyor® electrically powered, remote-controlled underground haulage system and will include an almost entirely electric fleet of production and development equipment. Our projections indicate that the use of electricity and automation will allow us to produce at a lower cost and minimize our environmental footprint."
Wasamac: A project in step with local communities
A Quebec-based company with a seasoned management team and a board of directors experienced in the development of large-scale mining projects such as Wasamac, Monarch is proactive when it comes to relations with host communities. "We listen to their requests and concerns and act accordingly," said Mr. Lacoste. "The transparency of the process is a priority for us."
Early in the EIAR process, prior to the filing of the project notice, the Corporation initiated consultations with certain stakeholders, including local residents living near the Wasamac project. These preliminary meetings allowed the main concerns associated with the project to be identified. The stakeholders targeted are listed in the project notice, and other stakeholders will be invited to similar information meetings and consultations as the process unfolds.
"In short, we are very proud to be launching this process to bring a major new Quebec gold mine into production," added Mr. Lacoste. "We are convinced that Wasamac could generate positive benefits for the various groups, communities and stakeholders that will be involved in this promising project managed here, by local people, for local people."
Summary of the project notice and preliminary timeline
Monarch prepared the project notice to present the preliminary background and important descriptive information for the Wasamac gold project. Broadly speaking, the Wasamac project consists of:
- Operation of an underground mine producing 6,000 tonnes per day on average, with an expected mine life of 11 years;
- Construction of underground ore haulage infrastructure;
- Construction of a mineral processing plant;
- Preparation of waste rock, tailings and overburden storage areas; and
- Establishment of related infrastructure (power supply, telecommunications, heating, ventilation, water treatment, etc.).
The December 2018 feasibility study by BBA (see feasibility study) indicates that the Wasamac deposit hosts a measured and indicated mineral resource of 29.86 million tonnes at an average grade of 2.70 g/t Au, for a total of 2.6 million ounces of gold, and proven and probable mineral reserves of 21.46 million tonnes at an average grade of 2.56 g/t Au, for a total of 1.8 million ounces of gold, with the deposit remaining open along strike and at depth.
The project notice will be available online on the environmental assessment register within 15 days of receipt of the MELCC guidelines specifying the requirements for the environmental impact assessment. The public will also be able to consult the register to find project-related documents as the evaluation process unfolds.
Based on the project notice filed by the Corporation and the guidelines from the ministry, individuals, groups and municipalities will have a 30-day public consultation period during which they may submit their comments to the Minister on the issues that should be addressed in the impact assessment. The Minister will forward the relevant comments on issues that merit consideration in the project's impact assessment to the Corporation and publish them in the environmental assessment register.
Monarch will issue press releases with updates on the permit application process at each stage in the process.
The technical and scientific content of this press release has been reviewed and approved by Marc-André Lavergne, Eng., the Corporation's qualified person under National Instrument 43-101.

Emerald maintains 50% ownership of Pure Sunfarms
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Emerald Health Therapeutics, Inc. (“Emerald”) (TSXV: EMH; OTCQX: EMHTF) today responded to inaccurate allegations made by Village Farms International, Inc. ("Village Farms") (TSX: VFF; Nasdaq: VFF) in connection with their 50/50 joint venture, Pure Sunfarms Corp. ("PSF"), and updated the market on certain related matters.
Late yesterday evening Emerald received notice from Village Farms stating that Village Farms had advanced $5.94 million to PSF for additional equity. Village Farms claims that it has the right to acquire these shares under the PSF shareholders’ agreement. In fact, Village Farms has no such right. Despite Village Farms’ claims, Emerald continues to hold a full 50% ownership interest in PSF.
“We were shocked to receive this notice,” said Riaz Bandali, President and CEO of Emerald. “We can’t speculate on Village Farms’ motivation for making this irresponsible and inaccurate claim, but we want to reassure investors that there has been no change in ownership of PSF. We are disappointed at the aggressive approach of Village Farms in this matter; however, we continue to believe that cooler heads will prevail. Until then we will assertively defend our rights on behalf of our shareholders in the face of these unwarranted actions by Village Farms.”
Under the PSF shareholders' agreement, Village Farms only has the right to make an equity contribution and increase its ownership stake if the other shareholder has defaulted under a contribution notice. A contribution notice can only be issued in certain specific circumstances and no such contribution notice was issued by PSF. The disclosure of Village Farms relating to this issue is therefore incorrect.
Emerald has acted in good faith with respect to its Pure Sunfarms joint venture, to date contributing over $37.4 million in equity investment in the D3 & D2 greenhouse operations, providing $13 million in an interest bearing loan, and purchasing over $20.5 million of cannabis as per the terms of its supply agreement with PSF.
In connection with the exercise of PSF's option to acquire the Delta 2 facility from Village Farms, an option agreement (the "Delta 2 Option Agreement") was entered into among Emerald, Village Farms and PSF. Pursuant to the Delta 2 Option Agreement, Emerald agreed to advance an aggregate of $25 million to PSF. Additionally, certain shares of PSF issued to Emerald were placed in escrow with an escrow agent (the "Escrow Agent") and were to be released to Emerald upon payment by Emerald of amounts payable under the Delta 2 Option Agreement.
Emerald has advanced a total of $17.41 million to PSF under the Delta 2 Option Agreement. Emerald was required to advance a further $5.94 million to PSF (the "Delta 2 Payment") on November 1, 2019; however, Emerald notified PSF that Emerald has decided to set-off the $5.94 million payment owed by Emerald to PSF against a portion of PSF’s debt under Emerald’s $13.0 million principal amount shareholder loan. Emerald has also delivered written notice to the Escrow Agent disputing the release of any of Emerald’s shares of PSF remaining in escrow and has notified the Escrow Agent that it must continue to hold the shares in escrow.
In light of PSF’s actions, Emerald has formally demanded repayment from PSF of the entire amount of its $13.0 million principal amount shareholder loan, plus interest. Emerald’s demand for repayment of its shareholder loan was delivered to PSF this morning.
Supply Agreement with Pure Sunfarms
As previously announced, under its supply agreement (the "Supply Agreement") with PSF, Emerald may decline to accept deliveries of cannabis product from PSF. If product is declined, PSF may sell such product to third parties. In the event of such sale, and only in certain circumstances, Emerald may be required to pay to PSF an amount equal to the difference between the purchase price applicable to Emerald (which is subject to adjustment based on sales by PSF to third parties in accordance with the Supply Agreement) and the price actually paid by such third parties. Between June 21, 2019 and September 29, 2019, Emerald declined to accept certain deliveries of product; this product was subsequently sold by PSF to third parties.
PSF has claimed that Emerald is liable to PSF for an aggregate amount of approximately $7.2 million under the terms of the Supply Agreement. Emerald disputes this claim as it believes that the basis for calculation by PSF of the purchase price is incorrect. Emerald is reviewing information very recently provided by PSF with respect to PSF’s wholesale sales.

About the Toquima Precious Metals Property, Nevada, USA
The Toquima Property is a gold and silver project located northeast of Tonopah, in central Nevada, USA. The Property comprises 253 contiguous, unpatented mineral claims with an area of approximately 1,958.6 hectares (ha) (4,840 acres). Eight (8) Core claims are under option from Shasta Gold Corp.,19 CX claims are under option from MinQuest Inc., and 226 AR claims were staked in 2016 by Centennial. All claims are in good standing until August 31, 2019.
The Property has been explored since 1970. Between 1970 and 2011, a total of 123 holes, both core and reverse-circulation, with an aggregate length of 17,895 m (58,712 ft) were drilled on the Property. Of this total, approximately 11,500 meters in 78 holes have been drilled within the Silver Reef Zone, the most significant of the known mineral occurrences on the Property. Two historical resource estimates in the context of National Instrument 43-101 exist for the Property. The first was done in 1984 by Copper Range Exploration and estimated 4 million short tons at grades of 2.91 opt Ag and 0.014 opt Au, (3.6 million metric tonnes grading 100 g/t Ag and 0.48 g/t Au). This historical resource estimate was done by hand and none of the key assumptions, parameters, and methods used to prepare this historical resource estimate are available. The second historical resource estimate was done in 1988 by Echo Bay Explorations Inc. which reported "probable" and "possible" resources of 1,251,808 short tons at an uncut grade of 7.22 ounces per ton (opt) Ag and 0.026 opt Au, (1,135,621 metric tonnes grading 247.54 grams per tonne (g/t) Ag and 0.891 g/t Au). A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify this historical estimate as a current mineral resource, and Rover is not treating them as a current mineral resource.
The Toquima Property is located on the eastern edge of the Toquima Range, a NNE-trending range typical of the Basin-and-Range Province. Most of the Toquima Range is underlain by volcanic rocks of Upper Oligocene to Lower Miocene age, comprising ash-flow tuffs ranging in composition from dacite to high-silica rhyolite. Structure in the Toquima Range is dominated by the generally NE-trending range-front faults on the east and west edges of the range, smaller NE-trending faults, older NW-striking pre-Basin-Range faults, and the circular faults and caldera margins of the Toquima Caldera Complex.
The Toquima Range and the San Antonio Range to the south contain the Northumberland -Tonopah gold-silver belt that hosts at least ten gold-silver mines and properties in addition to the Toquima Property, including Round Mountain (Kinross), Gold Hill, Northumberland, Manhattan, Belmont, and Tonopah. The Property exhibits similarities with most of the other Au-Ag properties in the belt: low-sulfidation epithermal mineralization in caldera margin and/or range front fault zones in veins, stockworks, and breccias hosted in hydrothermally-altered felsic volcanic rocks. Mineralization in the Silver Reef Zone is hosted in the Late Oligocene-age Corcoran Canyon Tuff dated at 27.7 Ma and the Trail Canyon Tuff dated at 23.6 Ma. Three types of felsic intrusions are present on the Property, one or more of which may be related to mineralization.
Exploration on the Property over the last 46 years has outlined the Silver Reef Zone and discovered other mineralized zones. The Silver Reef Ag-Au deposit, a potentially economic zone of pervasive quartz-adularia-sulfide veining, stockwork, and disseminated mineralization accompanied by intense quartz-sericite-pyrite alteration, occurs in a NE-trending, northwest-dipping, zone 500 m wide and 600 m long and has been defined by surface mapping and sampling as well as drilling.
Elsewhere on the Property, exploration identified four additional mineralized zones: Zone M/N is located west of the Silver Reef zone and consists of pervasive quartz-sericite alteration and quartz-adularia veining in a NE trending zone about 800 meters long. Zone R/S is a large area of strong quartz-sericite alteration on the western end of the Property, with anomalous rock and soil assay values. Zone L comprises an ENE-trending Au-Sb-As soil-rock anomaly 100 m long, over a silicified breccia zone. In Zone F, Echo Bay reported rock assays up to 30 g/t Ag, NW of Silver Reef. Although Echo Bay's subsequent soil samples did not generate an anomaly, Bullion River reported one Au-anomalous rock sample in a rhyolite intrusion.

SUDBURY, ON / ACCESSWIRE / November 19, 2019 / Northern Superior Resources Inc. (TSXV:SUP) ("Northern Superior" or the "Company") and Neskantaga First Nation ("Neskantaga") are pleased to announce a three year extension of their Early Exploration Benefits Agreement ("EEBA") for Northern Superior's Ti-pa-haa-kaa-ning ("TPK") gold-silver-copper exploration property located in Northwestern Ontario.
The provisions of the EEBA extend to all third parties, including Northern Superior's current Option/Joint Venture partner for the project, Yamana Gold Inc. ("Yamana").
Dr. T.F. Morris, President and CEO of Northern Superior states: "We are very pleased for the opportunity to continue our working relationship with Neskantaga First Nation. Having both the support and involvement of this Community with our exploration programs is key to the success of unlocking the mineral potential of the TPK property".
Chief Christopher Moonias, Neskantaga First Nation states: "We are encouraged by Northern Superior Resources continued willingness and commitment to engage with the Community in a meaningful way that respects our protocol and allow us to continue to build a stronger relationship. This is very important to fostering a lasting relationship moving forward."
This gold-silver-copper property, located in Northwestern Ontario, contains two large independent mineralized systems. The first gold-bearing area is contained within the Big Dam and New Growth areas of the property and is a laterally extensive mineralized shear system stretching 35km across the southern portion of the property. One of North America's largest gold grain-in-till dispersal aprons extends from this area. Gold grain anomalies of this scale are amalgamated responses from a cluster of gold-bearing zones, normally indicating a large gold system or district rather than a single gold-bearing zone (seeNorthern Superior Resources press releases, June 24, 2010, February 27, 2018, November 26, 2018). Results from the 2019 core drill program defined 8 gold-bearing shear zones capable of hosting economic deposits of gold (see Northern Superior Resources press release, May 15, 2019 and July 9, 2019).
The second gold-bearing system is contained within the Annex area of the property. This system is defined by a gold grain-in-till dispersal corridor. Mineralized boulders collected from within this corridor returned assay values of up to 727 g/t gold, 111 g/t silver, 4.1% copper (see Northern Superior Resources press release, June 25, 2012); and drill results returned grades of up to 4.62 g/t gold over 5.5m (see Northern Superior Resources press releases, June 25 and 26, 2012). Prospecting and overburden sampling completed in the summer of 2017 clearly defined the head of this corridor and identified several key mineral targets (see Northern Superior Resources press release, December 6, 2017).
Northern Superior owns 100% of the TPK property. Pursuant to an option/joint venture agreement entered into with Yamana, the project is operated by Northern Superior. Completion of this core drill program puts Yamana on track to complete the first-year commitment of this option/ joint venture agreement (see Northern Superior Resources press release, November 26, 2018).
Northern Superior works with Neskantaga through the EEBA to ensure beneficial engagement for all stakeholders through the early exploration phases completed on the TPK property.
Jonathan O'Callaghan P.Geo., is a qualified person ("QP") within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101. As the QP for the TPK property, Mr. O'Callaghan has reviewed, and approved information disclosed in this press release.
More information on the TPK project can be found on the Company's website (www.nsuperior.com) Northern Superior is currently looking for a partner to help move this valuable property forward to discovery.

About Great Bear
Great Bear Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: GBR) is a well-financed company based in Vancouver, Canada, managed by a team with a track record of success in the mineral exploration sector. Great Bear holds a 100% interest in its flagship Dixie property, which is road accessible year-round via Highway 105, a 15-minute drive from downtown Red Lake, Ontario. The Red Lake mining district is one of the premier mining districts in Canada, benefitting from major active mining operations including the Red Lake Gold Mine of Newmont Goldcorp Corp., plus modern infrastructure and a skilled workforce. Production from the Red Lake district does not necessarily reflect the mineralization that may, or may not be, hosted on the Company's Dixie property.
The Dixie property hosts different styles of gold mineralization. High-grade gold-bearing quartz veins and silica-sulphide replacement zones hosted by mafic volcanic rocks, and localized near regional-scale D2 folds, occur at the Dixie Limb and Hinge Zones. These mineralization styles are also typical of the significant mined deposits of the Red Lake district.
The LP Fault is large a trans-crustal deformation zone that is interpreted to traverse the Dixie property for approximately 20 kilometres of strike length and has been drilled along 4.0 kilometres of strike length to-date. It hosts high-grade gold mineralization that is controlled by structural and geological contacts, and low to moderate grade disseminated gold that surrounds and flanks the high-grade intervals. The dominant gold-hosting stratigraphy consists of felsic sediments and volcanic units.
In addition, Great Bear is also earning a 100% royalty-free interest in the Pakwash, Dedee and Sobel properties, which cover regionally significant gold-controlling structures and prospective geology. All of Great Bear's Red Lake projects are accessible year-round through existing roads.
Mr. R. Bob Singh, P.Geo, Director and VP Exploration, and Ms. Andrea Diakow P.Geo, Exploration Manager for Great Bear are the Qualified Persons as defined by National Instrument 43-101 responsible for the accuracy of technical information contained in this news release.
For further information please contact Mr. Chris Taylor, P.Geo, President and CEO at 604-646-8354, or Mr. Knox Henderson, Investor Relations, at 604-551-2360.

QUÉBEC CITY, Nov. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (TSXV: HEO) – H2O Innovation Inc. (“H2O Innovation” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to report the completion of the previously announced acquisition, on October 28, 2019, of Genesys Holdings Limited, Genesys Manufacturing Limited, Genesys International Limited and Genesys North America, LLC (collectively “Genesys”), a UK privately-owned group of companies specializing in the development and manufacturing of specialty chemicals dedicated to water treatment, at a purchase price of £16.95 M ($28.39 M).
Genesys develops, manufactures and distributes speciality reverse osmosis (RO) membrane chemicals, antiscalants, cleaners, flocculants and biocides, and offers, through a large distribution network of 70 distributors, a portfolio of over 35 diversified products with unique formulation that are manufactured in its facility located in Cheshire, UK. In addition, Genesys also offers complete laboratory services such as feed water and pre-treatment tests, membrane autopsies and cleaning program design.
This transaction will help strengthen H2O Innovation’s specialty chemicals business line in many ways. First, it will enable the Corporation to build a strong portfolio of products by combining the strengths of both the phosphonate technology and dendrimer chemistry. This extended and diversified product offering should enable H2O Innovation to cover a wider range of applications related to membrane filtration, and thus, improve its specialty chemicals’ sales. Furthermore, the combination of Genesys and PWT sales distribution networks will allow to build one of the largest distribution platforms for specialty chemicals, including 100 distributors active in more than 70 countries. Finally, since PWT is already manufacturing its products in California (USA) while Genesys is blending theirs in Cheshire (UK), the merger of the two companies will allow the Corporation to optimize its manufacturing strategy in order to lower freight costs for our customers and reduce delivery time.
“Through our innovative product line and first-class service, Genesys has become a leading name in the membrane market. All our branded formulations have been developed in-house and are produced at our UK factory in Cheshire. Although Genesys is highly profitable and has grown strongly over the years, we realize that the next stage in growth can only be achieved in combination with a larger organization”, said Ted Darton, President and Co-founder of Genesys.
“Whilst there was a significant level of interest in our business, we chose H2O Innovation as it became apparent, they were the perfect partner and ultimately represented the right home for our business and more importantly our employees. H2O Innovation will maintain the family feel that Genesys has developed by looking after its staff and distributors. As there are significant areas of synergy for both companies, we fully endorse the acquisition knowing it will be highly beneficial to all those involved”, added Ursula Annunziata, Director and Co-founder of Genesys.
The purchase price was established at £16.95 M ($28.39 M), on a cash-free, debt-free basis fully payable at closing of the acquisition. Genesys’ acquisition has been financed through committed credit facility as well as proceeds from an equity offering for gross proceeds of $22 M, including an overnight marketed public offering of subscription receipts for anticipated gross proceeds of $14 M as well as a concurrent brokered private placement of subscription receipts with BDC Capital Inc., Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec and Investissement Québec for aggregate proceeds of $8 M. The acquisition will also be financed by such amount needed to be drawn on the term loan made available in an amount of $12 M.
Certain statements set forth in this press release regarding the operations and the activities of H2O Innovation as well as other communications by the Corporation to the public that describe more generally management objectives, projections, estimates, expectations or forecasts may constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of securities legislation. Forward-looking statements concern analysis and other information based on forecast future results and the estimate of amounts that cannot yet be determined. Forward-looking statements include the use of the words such as “anticipate”, “if”, “believe”, “continue”, “could”, “estimate”, “expect”, “intend”, “may”, “plan”, “potential”, “predict”, “project”, “should” or “will” and other similar terms as well as those usually used in the future and the conditional. Those forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties, which may result in actual and future results of the Corporation to be materially different than those indicated. Information about the risk factors to which the Corporation is exposed is provided in the Annual Information Form dated September 24, 2019 available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com). Unless required to do so pursuant to applicable securities legislation, H2O Innovation assumes no obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements contained in this press release or in other communications as a result of new information, future events and other changes.
