Toronto, Canada, April 27, 2023 – Tartisan Nickel Corp. (CSE:TN; OTCQX: TTSRF; FSE: 8TA)

(“Tartisan”, or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has closed the grant to Electric Royalties Ltd. (“ELEC or Electric Royalties”), a 0.5% gross revenue royalty (“GRR”) on six (6) mining patents located on the wholly-owned Kenbridge Nickel Project, Kenora Mining District, Ontario, Canada.

Financial terms for the transaction included cash consideration of C$500,000 and 2,500,000 common shares of Electric Royalties Ltd., (the “Transaction”). The approximate market value of the transaction was C$1,350,000. Electric Royalties will also have the option, for a period of 18 months, to acquire a further 0.5% GRR on the six (6) mining patents for an additional C$1,750,000 cash consideration. In addition, Electric Royalties will have an option to acquire a 1% GRR on certain mining claims, mining leases and mineral tenures comprising the Kenbridge North Nickel Project (the “Kenbridge North Project” or “Kenbridge North”), approximately 2.5 km north of the Kenbridge Nickel Deposit, for C$1,000,000 cash, at any time during a period of 24 months from the date that Tartisan publishes an initial technical report in respect of the Kenbridge North Project which is prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 and which contains an estimate of Inferred Mineral Resources.

The Transaction noted herein was subject to completion of due diligence, approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and other customary conditions including an escrow agreement pertaining to the “ELEC” common share consideration.

Kenbridge Project Highlights

  • Located in a politically stable and mining-friendly region (New Gold’s producing Rainy River gold mine is located approximately 80 km to the south), with access to an all-season road scheduled for completion in 2023.
  • The project has a 622-meter (m) three compartment shaft with two underground level workstations and has never been mined.
  • Mineral Resource estimate1 completed by P&E Mining Consultants Inc. at an NSR cut-off of C$100/tonne includes:

o Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources of 3.445 million tonnes at 0.97% nickel (Ni),

0.52% copper (Cu) and 0.013% cobalt (Co), containing 74 million pounds (Mlb) of Ni, 39.1

Mlb of Cu and 1.0 Mlb of cobalt (Co).
o Inferred Mineral Resources of 1.014 million tonnes at 1.47% Ni, 0.67% Cu and 0.011% Co,


containing 32.7 Mlb of Ni, 14.9 Mlb of Cu and 0.2 Mlb of Co.

• Preliminary Economic Assessment2 (“PEA”) forecasts the following:
o Nine-year mine plan based on a 1,500-tonne-per-day underground mining and processing

operation. The mine plan mines the potentially extractable tonnage of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resources which assumes overall dilution of 47% (18% internal dilution from stope designs plus 29% external dilution) and a 94% mine recovery factor.

o Life-of-mine revenues from net smelter returns of C$837 million.
o Life-of-mine operating costs of C$292 million.
o After-tax net present value using a 5% discount rate of C$109 million and after-tax internal

rate of return of 20%.

  • Tartisan is progressing environmental baseline studies as part of its permitting and mining approval process towards its plan to commence nickel-copper production in approximately three years3.
  • Tartisan continues to develop positive relationships with the surrounding First Nations communities through its First Nations consulting partner Talon Resources and Community Development Inc.The PEA is considered preliminary in nature, contains numerous assumptions, and includes Inferred Mineral Resources that are considered too speculative, geologically, to have the economic considerations applied that would enable them to be classified as Mineral Reserves. There is no certainty that the results of the PEA (or any update thereto) will be realized. No Mineral Reserves have been estimated for Kenbridge. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. Inferred Mineral Resources are that part of the Mineral Resource for which quantity and grade, or quality are estimated based on limited geologic evidence and sampling, which is sufficient to imply but not verify grade or quality continuity. Inferred Mineral Resources may not be converted to Mineral Reserves. It is reasonably expected, though not guaranteed, that most Inferred Mineral Resources could be upgraded to Indicated Mineral Resources with continued exploration.Kenbridge Project OverviewThe Kenbridge Project is in northwestern Ontario, approximately 70 km east-southeast of the city of Kenora, and 50 km east of the township of Sioux Narrows by highway. Access to the property is via 23 km of road from Sioux Narrows. The project is in an area of historical and recent mine development, the most notable of which is New Gold’s Rainy River gold mine (see Figure 1).As of March 1, 2023, the Kenbridge Project is covered by patented and unpatented mining claims covering a total area of approximately 4,108.42 ha or approximately 41 km2.GeologyThe Kenbridge Deposit is an Archean-aged deposit hosted in gabbro and gabbro breccia. Mineralization (pyrrhotite, pentlandite, chalcopyrite ± pyrite) occurs within massive to net-textured and disseminated sulphide zones, primarily in gabbro breccia with smaller amounts in gabbro and talc schist. Nickel grades within the deposit are proportional to the total amount of sulphide, with rare massive sulphide zones exhibiting the highest grades. Mineralization undergoes rapid changes in thickness and grades. At least three sub-parallel mineralized zones were intersected in drilling and range in thickness from 2.6 to 17.1 m. Kenbridge is classified as a gabbro-related nickel sulphide deposit.

The deposit has been explored by several major and junior mining companies since 1936. There have been numerous drill programs and metallurgical programs and, in 1952, a 622-m shaft was installed, and two levels developed at 107 m and 152 m below the surface (see Figure 2).

Since 1937, 667 surface and underground holes totaling 99,741 m have been completed on the property. These holes defined a zone with surface dimensions of approximately 250 m by 60 m extending approximately 900 m to depth.

Deep drilling suggests further potential of the deposit at depth although this portion of the deposit is not well defined. The deepest holes to date are approximately 1100 meters. At least three sub-parallel mineralized zones were intersected in the 2021 Tartisan drill program and range in thickness from 2.6 m to 17.1 m. The deposit remains open at depth and along strike.

Besides the Kenbridge Deposit, there are several untested exploration targets on the property, such as the Kenbridge North target that has similar geophysical characteristics to the Kenbridge Deposit.

Mining and Processing

The PEA describes an underground development scenario and envisages a total of 4.52 million tonnes (Mt) of process plant feed over a nine-year mine life, with an average metal content of 0.81% Ni, 0.40% Cu and 0.01% Co. It is expected to operate at a daily rate of 1,500 tonnes per day, for a nominal production rate of approximately 528 thousand tonnes per annum.

The existing shaft extends to a depth of approximately 622 m from surface with 13 shaft stations cut approximately every 46 m. The plan would be to rehabilitate, expand, and refit the shaft with a new hoist and headframe to support mining in the upper areas above the shaft bottom, and later hoist material


excavated from areas below the extent of the shaft.

Mining areas from below the extent of the shaft will be accessed via a ramp from the lowest shaft station, with material being trucked to the bottom of the shaft for crushing and final hoisting to surface. This method of access was chosen to minimize lead time to mining and maximize scheduling flexibility, in addition to minimizing transportation costs of broken rock.

Xstrata Process Support test results on a bulk concentrate suggest that at feed grades in line with the current PEA mine plan, a 24% Cu concentrate at 89% Cu recovery and a 15% Ni concentrate at 80% Ni recovery could be anticipated.

A conventional crush-grind-float approach has been selected for beneficiation and processing at Kenbridge. Separate nickel and copper concentrates are expected to be produced at site and trucked to smelters in Sudbury (for nickel) and Rouyn (for copper). A portion of the tails would be thickened and used as backfill underground.

Mark Appleby, CEO of Tartisan Nickel Corp. states, “Electric Royalties has a growing portfolio of 21 royalties, including two royalties that currently generate revenue. ELEC is focused predominantly on acquiring royalties on advanced stage and operating projects to build a diversified portfolio located in jurisdictions with low geopolitical risk, which offers investors exposure to critical metals which advance a decarbonized global economy. We look forward to our partnership with Electric Royalties as Tartisanpage4image61530448
