About Nortec Minerals Corp.

Nortec is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company based in Vancouver, British Columbia with mineral exploration projects in Finland, Guinea – West Africa and potential acquisitions in Ecuador.

The Tomboko Gold Project is located in the North-eastern area of the Republic of Guinea, and is located immediately west of the Siguiri Gold Mine operated by AngloGold-Ashanti.  The Tomboko Gold Project is owned 100% by Alamako Corporation International SARL (ACI). The Golden Rule Mining Inc has entered into an agreement to own 100% of ACI’s Equity in the Tomboko Gold Project.  Nortec earned a 51% interest of Tomboko by completing Phases 1 and 2 of the Definitive Option Agreement (Agreement) entered with The Golden Rule Mining Inc. in 2017.   Nortec also spent approximately US$ 1 million of the required US$ 2.5 million to earn the remaining 29%.  This will convert to pro-rata interest as defined in the Agreement.

The permits are in the northern part of the Birimian Siguiri Basin which hosts three close multi-million ounce gold mines, the Lero (Nord Gold NV), the SAG (AngloGold-Ashanti) and the Keniéro (SEMAFO) along with several other lesser mines and projects in advanced stages.

Nortec undertook a first pass Diamond and RAB drill programs on these three Prospects commencing in September 2017. At TOM-1 North Target gold mineralization were intercepted (24m@3.7g/t (including 4m@10.1g/t) and 19m@2.7g/t) over the NW-striking sinistral brittle-ductile fracture systems. At TOM-2, RAB drilling over the NE-striking brittle-ductile dextral strike-slip fault systems intercepted 39m@0.7g/t (including 9m@1.1g/t) and 18m@0.5g/t.   New high grade gold mineralization from follow-up mapping, sampling of outcrops and termite mound surveys show a possible northern extension of the Tom 1 deposit over 1.5 km.

Sunstone Metals (formerly Avalon Minerals), a public Australian mining company has earned the 51% interest and is carrying out the 29% Stage 2 earn-in interest on the Tammela Gold & Lithium Project in South-West Finland.  Avalon has completed more than 3,000 meters diamond drilling on the Kietyonmaki lithium prospect and the Satulinmaki and Riukka gold prospects that comprise the Tammela Project.
