Montreal Quebec, May 19, 2021. The management of Mosaic Minerals Corporation (“Mosaic”) (CSE:
MOC) announces that it has executed an earn-in option agreement with Bullion Gold Resources (“Bullion”)
to acquire 100% of their Lichen base metal project located in the Chapais-Chibougamau area of northern
The Lichen property, comprised of 178 cells totaling approximately 9,968 hectares, is accessible yearround by a set of forest roads maintained by forestry companies working in the sector
The property is underlain by the volcanic rocks of the Obatogamau formation intruded by stocks and
plutons of intermediate composition. The volcanic belt is parallel to two known gold bearing volcanic belt,
the Bachelor Lake gold area to the west and the Osisko-Windfall gold area to the south. The Nelligan Gold
project and The Monster Lake Gold project are located at the eastern extremity of the volcanic belt.
Numerous gold and copper showings are also found to the east and to the west of the property.
A similar geological environment to the Doré Lake Anorthosite Complex is also present within the
property. In the Chibougamau mining camp, many of the copper-gold mines are in close proximity with
the Doré Lake Anorthosite Complex. The volcanic belt is in direct contact with the Opawica River
Anorthosite Complex and copper showing are present just to the northwest of the property. Many copper
intercepts up 900 ppm Cu and up to 2.05 m were reported in close proximity with the contact the
Mosaic is planning to compile all historical exploration work done on the Lichen Property and its
surrounding area, and conduct a helicopter-borne, very high-resolution magnetic survey.
The acquisition of exploration projects focused on base metals is part of Mosaic’s new development
strategy. Other projects with potential targeting primarily base metals are under consideration. We want
to assemble a quality portfolio with projects offering good exploration targets
emphasized Mosaic CEO,
Mr. Guy Morissette.
Pursuant to the May 18, 2021 Lichen Option Mosaic can up to an 100% interest in the Lichen Property by:

priority on the Quebec Province territory which have a long and successful history of base metal
production principally in the Rouyn-Noranda, Matagami, Vald’Or and Chibougamau mining camps.
Exploring for base metal was put on hold a few decades ago to the profit of exploring for gold but the
potential for discovering large Cu, Zn, Ni deposits is still very present.
