GREENBANK AFFILIATE UBIQUE COMPLETES NI 43-101 REPORT WHICH RECOMMENDS $2,262,500 DRILL PROGRAM
Toronto, Ontario, December 5, 2017 – GreenBank Capital Inc (CSE: GBC and OTCMKTS: GRNBF) ("GreenBank or the Company") announces that its 27% owned affiliate Ubique Minerals Limited (“Ubique”) has completed a NI 43-101 Report (the “Report”) on its 108 claims located in the Daniel’s Harbour area in Newfoundland, Canada. The Report will be utilized in Ubique’s intended public listing during 2018.
The Report states that the Daniel’s Harbour property is prospective for Mississippi Valley Type sulphide zinc deposits, and describes the results from Ubique’s 2017 nine-hole diamond drilling program, the highlight of which was a true width intersection of 13.6% Zinc over 39.9ft including 17.43% Zinc over 28.2 ft. “…which vastly exceeded what was predicted based on historic drilling in this area.”.
The Report recommends an ongoing exploration program in the total amount of $2,262,500 in three phases. Phase 1 in the amount of $285,000 would comprise a 1,000-2,000m diamond drill program on existing targets in the P Zone area. Phase 2 in the amount of $52,500 would comprise of a detailed digital data compilation of historic exploration, the establishment of exploration grids, and the identification of new drill targets. Phase 3 in the amount of $1,925,000 would comprise of a 10,000m diamond drill program to include the Tilt Pond and Cobo’s Pond areas. The Phase 3 program is intended to define any potential resource and provide the feasibility of re-establishing mining operations at Daniel’s Harbour.
The Report was prepared by Elliott M. Stuckless, P.Geo for Ubique. A copy of the Report titled “Technical Report on the Daniel’s Harbour Property” has been filed on SEDAR under GreenBank’s profile, and on Ubique’s website at www.ubiqueminerals.com .
Ubique’s 108 claims cover 27 sq kms around the former Daniel’s Harbour zinc mine situated approximately 10 km northeast of the town of Daniel’s Harbour on the west coast of Newfoundland. Approximately 7,000,000 tonnes averaging 7.8% zinc have been mined from the Daniel’s Harbour mine (Wardle, R.J. (2000) Mineral Commodities of Newfoundland and Labrador - Zinc and Lead; Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, Geological Survey, Mineral Commodities Series Number 1, 12 pages). The Ubique claims comprise three zones, namely P Zone, Cobo’s Pond and Tilt Pond. The P Zone is where Ubique completed its 2017 drilling program, the highlight of which was a true width intersection of 13.6% Zinc over 39.9ft including 17.43% Zinc over 28.2 ft. Ubique management believes that the Cobo’s Pond claims are strategically significant as they could potentially contain the extension to the mineralized horizon hosting the high-grade zinc intercepts from the 2017 drilling program. The Tilt Pond claims cover a southern mineral trend adjacent to previous drilling completed by Teck Exploration in 1990 on the adjacent Black Duck and Trapper claims (Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Mines, Geofiles Metadata Search).

Ubique expresses its appreciation of the financial support offered by the Junior Exploration Assistance Mineral Incentive Program (“JEA”) offered by the Department of Natural Resources, Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, for its Daniel's Harbour drilling program.
