Private Placement Update
As announced on August 8, 2018 the Company is currently undertaking a non-brokered private
placement to raise gross proceeds of between $500,000 and $1,000,000 to fund exploration at the
Company’s 100% owned Venus Copper Gold Project, Nevada. The private placement is subject to TSX
Venus Property Exploration Plans
The Venus Project is located within the Yerington copper porphyry district in the Walker Lane mineralized
belt in Nevada. It is approximately six miles east-south-east of the Yerington township, and easily
accessible by both paved and dirt roads.
Altan Nevada’s decision to advance exploration at the Venus Project coincides with the recommencement
of development of Nevada Copper Corp.’s (TSX: NCU) Pumpkin Hollow Copper Mine immediately to the
north and less than one mile from the tenement boundary which is expected to produce an average 50
million pounds of copper annually over 23 years commencing mid-2019.
A news release highlighting the potential for the Venus Project was released on August 7, 2018. Venus
is considered to have the potential for the discovery of new deposits of similar size and grade to Pumpkin
Hollow. It also has the potential for discovery of buried porphyry-style copper mineralization with
characteristics similar to the Yerington Mine.
Altan Nevada will be holding a special meeting of its shareholders on October 5, 2018 (the “Meeting“) at
which it will seek shareholder approval for (a) a 2:1 consolidation of its common shares, (b) an
amendment to the Company’s articles to permit certain matters currently requiring shareholder approval
to be approved by the Company’s directors (including name changes and consolidations and subdivisions
of the Company’s share capital), and (c) chairman John Jones becoming a “control person” of the
Company as such term is defined under the applicable policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
A Notice of Meeting and information circular in respect of the Meeting has been mailed to shareholders
of the Company, and will be posted under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com.
