Sweet Earth Provides Update on Its European Expansion

Newsfile

Published

on

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 7, 2020) – Sweet Earth Holdings Corp. (CSE: SE) (FSE: 1KZ1) (“Sweet Earth“) is pleased to provide an update on its European operations. In 2019 the Company had signed a long-term lease agreement (the “Lease Agreement“) in Los Barrios, Spain, a region renowned for its temperate climate and agricultural industry.

Sweet Earth has strategically secured the location near its European headquarters, which is also located in the province of Cadiz, Spain. The Lease Agreement, which extends for a minimum of five years, allows the Company to secure approximately 22 acres with an option for future lease extension and land expansion. In addition, the Company has recently purchased 450 kilograms of high-grade Earlina 8FC seeds.

Earlina 8FC seed is an industrial hemp strain that’s been authorized for cultivation in the European Union (“EU“). This strain was developed in France and is grown to produce highly nutritious hemp seeds rich in essential oils and beneficial to people and animals. Its key characteristic is a CBD yield of 2-3% with a guaranteed less-than 0.2% THC1 content, an essential European Community requirement. While North American hemp production allows for plants of up to 0.3% THC, the European Industrial Hemp Association (“EIHA“) adheres to more stringent EU policies.

The Federal Law and Policy, International, FDA, Hemp/CBD clearly emphasizes that it is not recommended to import CBD products from outside the EU. Hemp production and CBD products are legal throughout the continent, other than Slovakia2 but laws differ from country to country. Sweet Earth’s expansion into Los Barrios, Spain will allow it to produce locally, leverage its EU distribution relationships, augment research and development for the EU market, and expedite getting products on shelves throughout the continent.

Secures Strategic Piece of Value-Chain for Continued European Expansion

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – July 7, 2020) –  EuroLife Brands (CSE: EURO) (FSE: 3CMA) (OTC Pink: EURPF) (“EuroLife” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated enterprise focused on the pan-European health and wellness sector today announced that, further to the news release of November 22, 2019, it is proceeding with the close of an initial equity ownership position (the “Transaction“) in Farmhus GmbH, a state-of-the-art outdoor hemp facility located near Dresden, Germany.

Farmhus GmbH boasts the following list of assets that collectively comprise one of the largest fully operational outdoor hemp cultivation projects in Europe:

  • More than 500 hectares (1,235 acres) of prime agricultural land available for hemp cultivation near Dresden, Germany;
  • Scalability via option agreement to approximately 2,000 hectares (4,900 acres);
  • Approximately 110,000 kilograms of existing hemp biomass currently in storage inventory that has been harvested and processed from the latest harvest cycle;
  • Existing off-take agreements and purchase orders;
  • Specialized harvesting machinery capable of efficient commercial harvest at a rate of 50 hectares (123 acres) per day;
  • Specialized cleaning machinery utilized to extract and separate seeds from stems using a mechanically induced vacuum process with negative pressure;
  • Specialized drying machinery;
  • Drying rooms and warehouse space to be utilized for excess capacity, storage, cleaning and drying.

According to the Farmhus GmbH 2020 two-year business plan, the outdoor hemp operation is expected to generate more than €3 million from the sale of hemp oil, cosmetics, and pet food in its first season of operation. The operation is projected to have 200 hectares of hemp under cultivation and generate margins related to the sale of retail products in the range of 30-40%.

After an unforeseen delay due to the COVID pandemic, EuroLife is pleased to have completed its acquisition for the first equity tranche of ownership, representing an additional forward step in EuroLife’s European Business Model for end-to-end supply chain ownership. The complex will provide cost efficient raw product supply towards EuroLife’s pending acquisition of the HANF Hemp Retail Stores in Germany and Luxembourg. A total of seven (7) retail store fronts will have the opportunity to benefit from EuroLife’s umbrella ownership for direct-to-supply ownership of raw materials.

“Our goal to buildout a vertically integrated enterprise in the health of wellness sector took a monumental and logistically significant step forward today. With the investment into a hemp supply chain operation run by the experienced team at Farmhus, EuroLife gains a stake in a key physical asset in Europe for the growing health and wellness markets,” said Shawn Moniz, CEO of EuroLife. “EuroLife now has an equity ownership of a highly tactical asset located in Germany. We will leverage our position to ensure a supply of affordable and consistent quality raw materials for many hemp-based products sold online and through potentially owned or related physical retail locations. We look forward to work alongside the other notable stakeholders of the project in order to establish EuroLife’s leadership position in the European health and wellness business while capturing additional value-add downstream opportunities for the Company.”

In consideration for an initial five (5) per-cent ownership stake in Farmhus GmbH, EuroLife shall issue 500,000 common shares (the “Shares“) at a deemed price of $0.50 per Share for a deemed value of $250,000, and make payment of $35,000 in cash. EuroLife maintains the right to increase its ownership in Farmhus GmbH up to twenty (20) percent. Closing of the Transaction is subject to customary closing conditions.

Strategy and Downstream Value Creation

This operation will serve as a key strategic asset for EuroLife as it continues executing on its roadmap of creating a vertically integrated and diversified enterprise operating within the EU. Through sustained strategic deployment of capital and unification of synergistic assets EuroLife aims to become amongst the largest health and wellness companies in Europe.

On April 20, 2020 EuroLife announced it had entered into Letter of Intent (the “LOI”) to acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding securities of CWE, a Canadian Corporation, which owns and operates six retail locations in Germany and one in Luxembourg. CWE is seeking to become one of the largest hemp retail and online retailers, building controlled access to Central European customers by opening retail locations in Germany, Austria and Luxembourg.

HANF Hemp promotes an organic, health conscious lifestyle based mainly on hemp products. Physical store locations are known for their clean and safe profile, with friendly knowledgeable staff and an open and drug free atmosphere emphasizing fairness towards producers, suppliers and customers. HANF takes a holistic, comprehensive approach to the universe of Health and Wellness, offering a range of over 300+ products from the world of hemp including oils, edibles and cosmetics.

European Hemp Market

Boasting a population of over 700 Million citizens, with over 500 Million in the EU alone, the European opportunity afforded within the hemp and cannabidiol marketplace is growing at a substantial pace. EuroLife is of the opinion that as the industry matures and normalization takes hold, organizations equipped with low cost production combined with tactical downstream capability will prevail.

Currently there is a robust hemp market in the EU, with production in most member nations. In 2018, European cultivation grew by over 40% from 2015 to more than 40,000 hectares of production. Hemp production is centered in France, the Netherlands, Lithuania, and Romania, with France being largest producer, accounting for almost 50% of Europe’s total production.

The demand for hemp continues to grow fueled by the increasingly diverse use of this crop including the production of cannabidiol (CBD), which can be extracted for use in an array of food supplements, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. The legal cannabis market in Europe remains strictly medical, however the consumption of hemp-derived CBD infused products for recreational purposes is legally permitted across much of the continent.

With health and wellness taking hold of the global market the opportunity is staggering. It is suggested that the CBD products market could account for over 0.15% of the health and wellness market value by 2028. According to the latest research by the Global Wellness Institute, the worldwide wellness market grew 12.9% from $3.72 trillion in 2017 to $4.2 trillion in 2018. The European CBD market alone is projected to be worth at least €1.5 billion by 2023.

Brigadier Options Gold-Silver Picachos Property, Including Past Producing San Agustin High Grade Gold Mine, Sinaloa Mexico

Newsfile

Published

on

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 7, 2020) – Brigadier Gold Limited (TSXV: BRG) (the “Company” or “Brigadier“) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding letter of intent (“LOI”) for an option to acquire a 100% interest in the 3,954 hectare Picachos Gold-Silver Property (“Picachos”), centered over the historic “Viva Zapata” National Mineral Reserve, Sinaloa, Mexico.

Project Highlights:

  • Located in the Sierra Madre Occidental (SMO) Baluarte watershed, between the Panuco Project of Vizsla Resources and the Plomosas Project of GR Silver Mining.
  • San Agustin Mine underground channel sampling by prior operator returned average grade of 81.22 grams per ton (g/t) gold (Au) and 73.36 g/t silver (Ag) across 1.2 metres (Thunderbird Projects news release dated 18 June 1997). Values of 185 g/t Au were cut across the bottom of a production shaft (sample HBM-73175). The San Agustin vein has never been tested with diamond drilling.
  • More than 160 known historic underground mines, workings and prospects at Picachos are on gold-rich veins.
  • Recently identified, large copper porphyry prospect in northern area of Picachos.
  • Drill / exploration permits in place as well as recently renewed surface access agreement with local community.

Ranjeet Sundher, CEO, remarks “Picachos marks an important acquisition for Brigadier, positioning the Company in a prolific gold and silver region of Mexico. Picachos is road accessible and demonstrates exceptional potential for advancement. Over 160 underexplored historic mines and workings throughout Picachos provide excellent potential for discovery of new gold-silver mineralized zones. Picachos benefits from a comprehensive historical exploration data library, allowing for the immediate commencement of exploration and an inaugural drill program. We’re looking forward to getting boots on the ground and drills turning.”

Picachos, held by Minera Camargo S.A. de C.V. (Minera Camargo), is comprised of four mining concessions covering an area of 3,954 hectares and is situated in the municipality of El Rosario, in the southeastern region of Sinaloa state, Mexico. Prior to 2002, the mineral tenure was fractured by several small concessions. Minera Camargo acquired a contiguous land package between 2003 and 2012. Geographically, the Picachos overlaps part of the western foothills of the Sierra Madre Occidental (SMO). Access to Picachos from Mazatlan is by state highway and paved road to the town of Cacalotan, and then by dirt road into the Property. Total driving distance is approximately 111 road kilometres (km) over a period of four hours. Mine workings are accessed by approximately 20 km of roads internal to the Property.

Picachos overlaps (i) two regional-scale precious metal rich vein systems and (ii) a large porphyry copper prospect. Historic metal production is from the veins. The largest vein system trends northeasterly for seven kilometers along a major fault zone, and host the past-producing San Agustin underground mine. It appears to be cross-cut and disrupted by several northwesterly trending veins including El Placer. The El Placer vein system has been mapped over a 4 km long strike length. The portion that belongs to Minera Camargo is about 1.5 km long in the southeastern part of Picachos.

Regional geochemical work by the SGM at the turn of the millennium highlighted the historic Viva Zapata Mineral Reserve as one of the largest contiguous, and highest amplitude anomalies for gold, silver and base metals in southern Sinaloa and northern Nayarit.

Specifically, all seventeen drainage basins that underlie Picachos contain anomalous copper values of 49 to 299 ppm, nine basins contain anomalous gold values of 0.1 to 2.6 ppm, 3 basins contain anomalous molybdenum values of 3.2 to 13.9 ppm, fifteen basins contain anomalous lead values ranging from 53 to 639 ppm lead and eight basins contain anomalous zinc values that range between 233 and 1716 ppm. Nine of the seventeen basins contain detectable silver ranging from 1 to 1.9 ppm.

The historic San Agustin gold mine contains approximately 670 m of historic underground development.

In the mid-1990’s, previous owner Minas de Picacho S.A. de C.V. built 225 m of cross-cuts large enough for rubber-tired diesel equipment and started mining and milling ore from the San Agustin Gold Mine. Their underground sampling implied an average grade of 81.2 g/t Au and 73 g/t Ag across 1.2 m (Thunderbird Projects News Release dated 18 June 1997). The historic assays cannot be verified as those sample locations are now mined out.

In June of 2014, Vane Minerals test mined three rounds from the south face. The average assay values of muck piles from each of these three rounds were 15.8 g/t Au and 63 g/t Ag across a mined width of 2.5 m.

The San Agustin Gold Mine exploits a gold-rich shear zone hosted in basaltic andesite that may be as old as Jurassic. Mineralization consists of sulfide in a quartz-calcite gangue. It is heavily oxidized even as deep as 100 m below surface. The shear zone trends northeasterly and dips steeply northwesterly. On surface, quartz veining occurs in a foliated zone that is poorly exposed over a 400 m strike length. Extraction adits intercept the vein at 695 m elevation, 670 m elevation and 646 m elevation. Within the lowermost adit, some slots are mined as deep as 45 meters (601 m elevation).

No diamond drilling has ever been done on the San Agustin Vein.

Geology and Mineralization

Picachos is underlain by Jurassic to Oligocene volcanic and sedimentary strata that are intruded by Early Cretaceous gabbro, Late Cretaceous quartz monzonite, a Paleocene granodiorite/granite intrusive complex and Oligocene rhyolitic domes. Porphyry-style stockwork mineralization is related the Paleocene intrusive complex. Chalcopyrite and molybdenite occur in quartz veinlets with biotitic selvedges and muscovitic vein envelopes. Sericitic alteration typical of the upper parts of porphyry systems has been identified by surface sampling over an area approximately 6 km in diameter as shown on the map. Gold mainly occurs with base metals in veins that outcrops at higher elevations both southeast and northeast of the porphyry system. The veins in the Colcomeca structure locally show evidence of ductile shear, and might best be classified as orogenic. Northwesterly trending veins such as El Placer contain stilpnomelane (iron-rich biotite) in vein selvedges that must have crystallized at temperatures well-above epithermal ranges.

Acquisition Terms

To acquire a 100% interest in 4 contiguous mineral claims comprising the Picachos Property, Brigadier will provide staged consideration to Minera Camargo over a 5-year period consisting of cash payments totalling US$275,000; share issuances totaling 4,000,000 common shares of Brigadier; and cumulative exploration expenditures of US$3,850,000. Brigadier will also make payments to Minera Camargo for Picachos development milestones as to: i) 1,000,000 common shares of Brigadier upon delineating a mineral resource estimate containing a minimum of 350,000 ounces of gold in the inferred category (based on the then current CIM definitions); ii) US$725,000 and 1,000,000 common shares of Brigadier upon completion of a feasibility study recommending the construction of a mine on the Property; and iii) US$2,000,000 upon commencement of commercial production. Brigadier may, at its option, issue common shares in lieu of one half of the cash payments to be made pursuant to each of ii) and iii). A 2% NSR will be retained by Minera Camargo.

Minera Camargo is at arm’s length to Brigadier.

The acquisition is subject to a number of conditions precedent, including: completion of confirmatory due diligence by Brigadier, receipt of all applicable regulatory, shareholder and third-party approvals, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”)

Subject to approval of the Exchange, a finder’s fee will be paid in connection with the transaction.

The Company has not undertaken any independent investigation of the historical information contained in this press release nor has it independently analyzed the results of the previous exploration work in order to verify the accuracy of the information. The Company believes that the historical results and other information contained in this press release are relevant to continuing exploration on the Property.

Qualified Person

Technical information in this New Release has been reviewed by Michelle Robinson, MASc., P.Eng., a Qualified Person as defined by NI-43-101.

Sample HBM-73175 was collected from a homogenous pile of mine muck taken from the bottom of JJV Slot in the San Agustin mine at the 601 m elevation by a geologist working for Hudbay Minerals in 2013. The geologist sent this sample with his other samples to Acme’s preparation laboratory in Guadalajara, Jalisco. There, the samples were crushed and split. A one kg split of each sample was pulverized to -200 mesh (R200-1000) with an extra wash with glass between each sample (code XWSH). The prepared pulps were sent to the North Vancouver lab for analysis using ICP-MS methods (code 1DX), whole-rock analyses (code 4A-4B) and fire assay methods using a gravimetric finish (code Group 6Gr). It is the QP’s opinion that the result of HBM-73175 is reliable.

Regional geochemical samples were collected from sediments deposited in active stream channels by personnel working for the Servicio Geologico Mexicano (SGM) using a plastic scoop then sieving the sediment to -80 mesh into a numbered sample envelope. Sample locations were recorded with a hand-held GPS. The samples were sent to Government laboratories in either Chihuahua or Oaxaca where a 1-gram portion of the pulp was dissolved in aqua regia and analyzed for 32 elements using ICP methods. Gold was analyzed using fire-assay methods with an AA finish. Detection limits (DL) for gold are 1 ppb. Silver DL is 0.8 ppm, molybdenum DL is 0.9 ppm, lead, zinc, and copper DL is 2 ppm. It is the author’s opinion that the analytical data of the SGM is of good quality, but that gold concentrations can be under-estimated due to sampling surficial stream sediments with a plastic scoop when more representative results can be better obtained by digging into natural sediment traps using heavy tools. Further, use of the -80-mesh fraction might result in a larger nugget effect than using a finer fraction (say -200 mesh).

Samples by Vane Minerals in 2014 were taken for determining if the grade of muckpiles was adequate for milling. They collected about 2 kilograms of sample from several handfuls of muck from different areas of each pile. Their samples were assayed at their fire-assay laboratory in Acaponeta. It is the QP’s opinion that these assays are reliable.
