Jaxon Announces Chairman and Lead Director; Creates Technical Advisory Board

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – June 23, 2017) – Jaxon Minerals Inc. (TSXV: JAX) (FSE: 0U3) announces the appointment of John King Burns as Chairman and Lead Director. Mr. Burns’ knowledge in corporate governance, geological strategies and all aspects of mining finance will contribute strongly to the continued development of Jaxon. Mr. Burns is former Chairman and founder of Northern Orion, which was subsequently acquired by Yamana Gold in a $1 billion transaction. He also served as Global Head and Managing Director of the Derivative Trading and Structured Finance Group at Barclays Metals London, a unit of Barclays Bank PLC, from 1991-1997, which provided over $3 billion to the mining industry during his tenure. It was Mr. Burns and his Barclays team that first proposed the combination of Minas Luismin S.A. with Wheaton River Minerals, which later became Goldcorp.

Mr. Burns currently serves as Independent Director of China Gold International Resource Corp ($800 million market capitalization) and to Simba Essel Energy and was an Advisor to Western Potash in the $32 million investment by a subsidiary of China National Overseas Oil Corporation (CNOOC). Mr. Burns’ prior accomplishments working within the mining industry include being former Chairman and Lead Director of Athabasca Potash (before it was sold to BHP for $341 million); as well as former Chairman of Dolly Varden Silver which, like Jaxon, is focused on the Golden Triangle in BC.

Jason Cubitt, President of Jaxon Minerals, stated “We are deeply pleased to have the counsel of John King Burns as Jaxon builds into a significant exploration company. Not only will his experience in mining finance be invaluable, as Chairman he will ensure that the Board governs and advises the Company appropriately. John’s merger and acquisition experience will open significant opportunities with institutional investors, developing strategies as we develop Jaxon’s assets.”

John King Burns, as Chairman of Jaxon Minerals, noted “As a junior minerals exploration and development company, Jaxon has assembled both a strong team and enviable land positions within British Columbia. These projects are located on some of the most prospective orogenic, mineral-rich areas in the world and the Company has the opportunity to advance a number of significant discoveries in 2017 and 2018. First results from the field program underway are expected shortly, and we are truly excited, based on reports from the field.”

The Company would also like to announce that three senior geotechnical experts have agreed to serve on Jaxon’s Technical Advisory Board – Alastair Waddell, Dennis Moore and Carl Swensson. Jason Cubitt, President of Jaxon Minerals noted “these professionals are a testament to the quality of Jaxon’s projects, and to Bruce Ballantyne’s skill and experience in acquiring and exploring these exciting targets. Together with John King Burns, we now have an exceptional team to take Jaxon to the next level.”

CKR Announces Resignation of Director Mike England

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – June 23, 2017) – CKR Carbon Corporation (TSXV: CKR) (FSE: CB81) (“CKR” or the “Company”) a graphite development company and operator of the Aukam vein graphite project in Namibia, announces the resignation of Mr. Mike England as a Director of the Company as he wishes to focus on other ventures.

Mr. England has been involved as a Director, and later as President and Chief Executive Officer, since 2009. He positioned the company in the graphite space, initially with projects in Ontario and Quebec, followed by the acquisition of the Aukam project in Namibia in 2015 which remains the Company’s flagship.

“The company would like to thank Mike for his help and encouragement following the acquisition of the Aukam project,” said Roger Moss, Chief Executive Officer of CKR Carbon. “We wish him well with his other endeavours.”

About the Aukam Project

CKR has, through a binding Farm Out Agreement with Next Graphite Inc., an option to acquire 63% of the Aukam graphite project by meeting certain milestones and making cash payments. It also has the option to buy an incremental 10% of Next’s remaining interest in the License subject to agreement by Next. CKR has acquired 52% of the project and expects to acquire the full 63% in the near future.

The Aukam Graphite Project is located on 34,082 hectares in southern Namibia close to the port city of Luderitz. The property hosts three underground adits which were mined periodically between 1940 and 1974. Five dumps from the historical mining occur on the property and 73 composite samples taken from the lower three dumps were assayed and averaged 42% Carbon as graphite (Cg). While these composite samples were selected from a much larger screened sample of the dumps, they are not considered representative of the mineralization on the property as a whole.

CKR recently completed a bulk sampling program at Aukam, and has a letter of intent to sell a portion of the graphitic material produced during the program. CKR is currently undertaking technical studies to support an application for a mining license. The company maintains high safety and environmental standards and has a comprehensive strategy of social engagement.

About CKR Carbon Corporation

CKR Carbon Corporation is focused on high quality, natural graphite suitable for use in lithium-ion batteries, graphite foil, graphene and other value-added high growth technology applications.

CKR is currently undertaking studies to support an application for a mining license. The company maintains high safety and environmental standards and has a comprehensive strategy of social engagement. The company is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol CKR.

This news release contains forward looking statements concerning future operations of Centurion Minerals Ltd. (the “Company”). All forward-looking statements concerning the Company’s future plans and operations, including management’s assessment of the Company’s project expectations or beliefs may be subject to certain assumptions, risks and uncertainties beyond the Company’s control. Investors are cautioned that any such statements are not guarantees of future performance and that actual performance and exploration and financial results may differ materially from any estimates or projections. Such statements include, among others: possible variations in mineralization, grade or recovery rates; actual results of current exploration activities; actual results of reclamation activities; conclusions of future economic evaluations; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; failure of equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; accidents and other risks of the mining industry; delays and other risks related to construction activities and operations; timing and receipt of regulatory approvals of operations; the ability of the Company and other relevant parties to satisfy regulatory requirements; the availability of financing for proposed transactions, programs and working capital requirements on reasonable terms; the ability of third‑party service providers to deliver services on reasonable terms and in a timely manner; market conditions and general business, economic, competitive, political and social conditions. It is important to note that the information provided in this news release is preliminary in nature. The Company’s Ana Sofia project has not been the subject of a feasibility study and as such there is no certainty that a potential mine will be realized or that the processing facility will be able to produce a commercially marketable product. There is a significant risk that any production from the project will not be profitable with these risks elevated by the absence of a compliant NI 43‑101 feasibility study. A mine production decision that is not based on a feasibility study demonstrating economic and technical viability does not provide adequate disclosure of the increased uncertainty and specific risks of failure associated with such a production decision. The work carried out to date is of a preliminary nature to assist in the determination as to whether the mineral product is suitable for sale and if there are markets for the mineral product. The Company has undertaken market research and studies to try to mitigate these risks. General risks inherent in the Project include the reliance on available data and assumptions and judgments used in the interpretation of such data, the speculative and uncertain nature of exploration and development costs, capital requirements and the ability to obtain financing, volatility of global and local economic climates, share price volatility, estimated price volatility, changes in equity markets, exchange rate fluctuations and other risks involved in the mineral exploration and development industry. There can be no assurance that a forward‑looking statement or information referenced herein will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements or information. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward‑looking statements or information. We undertake no obligation to reissue or update any forward‑looking statements or information except as required by law.

Far Resources Sponsors Video Presenting Overview of Sources, Uses, and Demand for Lithium – Video Posted on InvestmentPitch.com

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – June 23, 2017) – Far Resources (CSE: FAT) has sponsored an educational video, which gives a brief overview of lithium. The video describes the difference between obtaining lithium derived from hard-rock spodumene versus obtaining lithium from other sources, such as brine deposits.

The video also discusses the factors behind the increases in the price of lithium since 2015. According to research from Wall Street’s Bernstein, by 2015, approximately one-third of lithium-ion batteries were used in the electric vehicle sector. Looking further out, Bloomberg estimates that electric vehicles will account for 35% of all new vehicle sales by 2040. The video also discusses the growth in the rechargeable battery market.

The company is preparing to start its 2017 exploration program with a multi-faceted program including geological mapping and prospecting, mineralogical and geochemical research and an upgrade of the 3D model for the Zoro Dyke #1 spodumene-bearing pegmatite, located near Snow Lake, Manitoba.

The company’s management and technical consultants will be accompanied by highly experienced and well-respected pegmatite scientists, Dr. Robert Linnen of the University of Western Ontario (London) and Winnipeg-based Dr. Tania Martins of the Manitoba Geological Survey, who will participate in the field examination to evaluate the possibility of academic research of the Zoro pegmatite system.

Keith Anderson, President and CEO, stated: “With the second round of drilling complete on Dyke#1 at the Zoro Lithium property and confirmation of the high-grade nature of lithium in this spodumene-bearing dyke we are anxious to plan for our 2017 exploration program. The planned activities will allow us to assess Dykes 2 through 7 on our optioned ground and also prepare for our next drill program at the Zoro1 dyke as we move towards a 43-101 Technical report.”
