June 21, 2023, Vancouver, B.C. Planet Ventures Inc. (TSXV: PXI) (the “Company” or “Planet Ventures”), is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a claim sale agreement (the “Definitive Agreement”) among the Company, Wildwood Exploration Inc. (“Wildwood”), Shawn Ryan (“Ryan”), and Isaac Fage (“Fage”) pursuant to which the Company has agreed to purchase 46,909-hecatres consisting of 1,013 mineral claims located in the Province of Quebec (the  “Potier  Claims”).    The  Potier  Claims  will  be  held  by  the  Company’s  wholly  owned subsidiary, Planet Ventures Exploration Inc. (“Subco”).

The Potier Claims consists of three separate district-scale projects, named “Snap”, “Crackle” and “Pop”, within Quebec’s emerging Leaf River South Lithium Camp (Nunavik), located 200 kilometers WSW of the community of Kuujjuaq, QC.  Several companies are now active in the area with multiple large land acquisitions having taken place in recent months.

The acquired claims cover some of the highest (99% percentile) lithium, cesium, and rubidium lake  sediment  anomalies  in  the  entire  Government  du  Quebec  lake  sediment  database (SIGÉOM) that sit within favourable geological hosts of leucotonalites, granites, gneiss, and mafic basalts units.   The highly elevated lake sediment samples over favourable geology associated with regional magnetic structure and documented pegmatites represents an optimal environment for rare-element pegmatites.

“This is a pronounced area of extremely elevated rare-element lake sediment samples hosting documented  pegmatites,”  said  renowned  prospector  and  property  vendor,  Shawn  Ryan. “These sample results, coupled with felsic intrusive activity in structurally prepared ground, provides high exploration merit for Planet Ventures. The ground was identified as highly prospective and staked as a result of these and other datasets,” continued Mr. Ryan.

The Snap project consists of 396 claims covering 18,364-ha, with three mapped pegmatites. Thirteen (13) lake sediment samples have been collected containing over 28.5 ppm Li (97% percentile), 3 samples over 37.3 ppm Li (99% percentile), 2 samples over 40.1 ppm (99.31% percentile) and 1 sample over 47.8 ppm (99.78% percentile). The ground also contains multiple Cs levels in the 3 ppm (97% percentile) to 6.35 ppm (99.89% percentile) range, and multiple Rb levels over 46 ppm (97% percentile) *.

* A percentile is a number where a certain percentage of values fall below the sample result. Thus if 50 ppm Li falls within the 99% percentile, 99% of all the samples taken in the study are below 50 ppm Li.

Crackle comprises 376 claims covering 17,432-ha, with four mapped pegmatites. Twelve (12) lake sediment samples have been collected reporting over 28.5 ppm Li (97%), with 5 samples over  37.3  ppm  (99%), and  3  samples  over  45.5  (99.69%).    Crackle  also  contains  multiple elevated Cs levels in the 3 ppm (97%) to 4.8 ppm (99.64%) range, and multiple Rb levels in the 46 ppm (97%) to 92.7 ppm (99.76%) range.

Pop contains 241 claims covering 11,113-ha, with two known pegmatites.   Eight (8) lake sediments samples have been collected in the claim group reporting over 28.5 ppm Li (97%), 4 samples over 37.3 ppm (99%), 2 samples over 46.8 ppm Li (99.74%). The highest lake sediment sample on the property returned 50.6 ppm Li (99.84%).  Pop also contains multiple Cs levels in the 3 ppm (97%) to 5.31 ppm (99.79%) range, and multiple Rb levels in the 46 ppm (97%) to 80.3 ppm (99.53%) range.

Geology across all claim blocks consists of a mix of leucotonalites, granodiorites, granites, paragneiss, amphibolites, gabbros, and basalts.   The magnetic data highlights NW and WNW trending structures which make excellent pathways for fractionating fertile parental melts.


As consideration for the Potier Claims, the Company has agreed to (i) pay Wildwood $350,000 in cash, and (ii) issue Ryan and Fage an aggregate of 5,000,000 common shares in the capital of the Company (the “Consideration Shares”).  The Consideration Shares will be subject to escrow conditions pursuant to which (i) 1/3 of the Consideration Shares will be released from escrow four months and a day after the date on which the Company acquires the Potier Claims (the “Closing Date”), (ii) 1/3 of the Consideration Shares will be released eight months after the Closing Date, and (iii) 1/3 of the Consideration Shares will be released twelve months after the Closing Date. Additionally, Subco will grant Ryan a 1% net smelter return royalty on the Potier Claims.

The transaction is at arms-length and expected to be an expedited acquisition pursuant to TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) Policy 5.3 – Acquisitions and Dispositions of Non-Cash Assets.

CEO Appointment

The Company is also pleased to announce that it has appointed Alexander Klenman as its new Chief Executive Officer.  Mr. Klenman brings over two decades of leadership experience in both the public and private sectors to the Company, and currently holds senior management and board positions with multiple public companies, including Leocor Gold Corp., Azincourt Energy Corp., Arbor Metals Corp., and Tisdale Clean Energy Corp., and others.

Planet Ventures Inc. incorporated Planet Ventures Exploration Inc. as it has invested in equity positions in the resource sector and with the acquisition of Snap, Crackle and Pop wants to emphasize the approach it’s taking to the resource space.  The appointment of Mr. Klenman as CEO strengthens the Company’s management team by adding significant and relevant experience as it begins the exploration and development stage of the new projects.
