VANCOUVER, BC / April 2, 2020 / International Mining Corp (CSE:IMCX) (OTC PINK:IMIMF) (the “Company” or “IMC“), is pleased to announce, further to its news release dated March 18, 2020, that it has completed the acquisition (the “Acquisition“) of 100% of the issued and outstanding share capital of Thane Minerals Inc.

Thane holds a 100% interest in an approximately 206 km2 (50,904 acres) land package (the “Land Package“) located in north-central British Columbia, which includes six highly prospective mineralized areas identified to date including the ‘Cathedral prospect’.

The IMC Shares will be escrowed and released over a 36-month period.
In addition to the foregoing, if, through additional exploration programs, a resource calculation of at least 800,000,000lbs of copper-equivalent, as determined based on a National Instrument 43-101 (Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects) (“NI 43-101“) compliant resource estimate, is determined to be indicated within the Cathedral prospect area, then IMC will issue an additional aggregate of $2-million CAD worth of common shares (or cash in lieu, at IMC’s option) to the Vendors.
