Toronto, Ontario, November 1, 2017 – GreenBank Capital Inc (CSE: GBC and OTCMKTS: GRNBF) (“GreenBank or the Company”) announces that its 27% owned affiliate Ubique Minerals Limited (“Ubique”) has transferred its Buchans Wileys property in Newfoundland, Canada to Ubique’s subsidiary Buchans Wileys Exploration Inc (“BWE”) and will dividend 100% of the shares of BWE to Ubique shareholders.
The BWE dividend will be on the basis of a one for one distribution. The Record Date for the dividend distribution is October 28, 2017.
As a result of the distribution, GreenBank owns 27% of BWE which will comprise the ninth company in its investment portfolio. GreenBank will be working with the directors of BWE to place BWE in a position to develop the Buchans Wileys property, and in due course to seek a public listing for BWE on the CSE.
The Buchans Wileys Property consists of 48 contiguous claims within two mapped staked licenses. The property covers an area measuring 12 square kilometers. It is located 4km southwest of the past-producing Buchans Mine. The Buchans Mine produced 16,196,876 tonnes of ore at an average mill head grade of 14.51% zinc, 7.65% lead, 1.33% copper, 126 grams/tonne silver and 1.37 grams per tonne gold. (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)
In August 2017 an airborne survey of the Buchans Wileys property was completed. That information is currently being evaluated and will be included in a NI 43-101 report to be completed by the end of 2017.
Work on the property to date has included the discovery of three base metal rich boulders along the shoreline of Wileys Lake. Two samples collected from Boulder 1 returned grades of 10.6% Zn, 1.84% Cu, 2.27% Pb, 26.4 g/t Ag and 9.90% Zn, 1.31% Cu, 2.50% Pb, and 19.2 g/t Ag. Boulder 2, discovered approximately 500 meters north of Boulder 1, returned grade of 13.5% Zn and 12.2 g/t Ag. Boulder 3, discovered approximately 500 meters north of Boulder 2, returned grades of 3.20% Pb, 1.16% Zn, and 9.1 g/t Ag. The angularity of the boulders suggests that they are locally derived.
Samples were sealed and delivered to Eastern Analytical Ltd (“EA”), of Springdale NF, an accredited ISO compliant lab. EA has its own QA/QC protocol using standards, blanks and duplicates. A multi-element analysis was completed on a 200 mg sub-sample of all the samples. All samples are grab samples, are considered selective, and are not considered representative of mineralization hosted on the property.
