NLR Announces Amendment to Debt Agreement with Mirabel Capital and Provides Project Update

Northern Lights Resources Corp

Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire - February 27, 2024 - Northern Lights Resources Corp. (“Northern Lights” or the “Company”) (CSE:NLR), (OTC:NLRCF) is pleased to announce an amendment to the debt agreement with Mirabel Capital Ltd (the “Investor”) and provides an update on its current portfolio of exploration projects.


Amendment to Debt Agreements


As announced by the Company on January 15, 2024, as of that date, Northern Lights had approximately US$229,825 (Correction to US$237,504 amount stated in the Company’s January 15, 2024 announcement) of debt payable to the Investor, in cash, on or before February 23, 2024. The amended terms were memorialised in an amendment, dated April 27, 2023 (the “First Amendment”), to the initial Security Purchase Agreement that the Company entered into with the Investor on May 27, 2021 (the “Agreement”).


The inability of the Company to make the lump sum cash payment of US$229,825 by February 23, 2024, triggered a default interest provision totalling US$55,677 under the terms of the First Amendment and the underlying Agreement.


The Company has negotiated and entered into an agreement amendment (the “Second Amendment”) dated February 23, 2024. Under the terms of the Second Amendment the Company must make a lump sum cash payment of US$285,502 on or before the Company amended agreement the Company entered into with the Investor on February 23, 2025. No further interest is payable if the Company pays the outstanding debt owing by February 23, 2025.

Project Update


The Company would also like to announce that it is currently reviewing new exploration properties to add to its project portfolio which currently includes the fully permitted, 100% owned and exploration-ready Secret Pass Project located in Arizona and its 1% NSR royalty exposure to the Medicine Springs Project in Nevada. 


a)  Secret Pass Project


The Secret Pass Project includes the Tin Cup Prospect and the FM Zone Prospect.

In 2021, Northern Lights completed a 610-metre drill program at the Tin Cup Prospect that included 4 diamond drill holes. The assay results from the initial Tin Cup drill program showed the presence of significant gold mineralization with assays up to 29.9 g/t gold. See NLR announcement of March 7, 2022, for further information (NLR Tin Cup Drilling Results March 7, 2022)).


Following on from the success of the initial four holes completed at Tin Cup, Northern Lights is planning to restart exploration at Secret Pass including:


- A deep penetrating Induced Polarization (IP) Survey over the area between the Tin Cup and FM zones. The FM Zone is located approximately 1 km east of the Tin Cup prospect. The IP survey will explore depths of ~400 metres and will assist in further defining the drill targets associated with zones of high chargeability located along strike and to depth over the identified soil anomaly zone between Tin Cup and the FM Zone. Approximately 16 line km are planned in the IP survey; 


- three additional holes at Tin Cup; and


- two drill holes at the FM Zone.


See Figure 1 for details of the proposed exploration plan at Secret Pass.


The Secret Pass Project mineral claims are in good standing with permits in place for the proposed drill holes. Northern Lights intends to restart the exploration activities at Secret Pass when the Company has sufficient funds to complete the exploration program.

b)  Medicine Springs Project


On December 15, 2022, Northern Lights announced the sale of its remaining 25% interest in the Medicine Springs Project Option to Reyna Silver Corp (“Reyna Silver”). As part of the consideration on the sale of the Medicine Springs Option, Reyna Silver agreed to grant Northern Lights a 1% NSR interest over the entire Medicine Springs Project. 


Since initially optioning the Medicine Project from Northern Lights in 2020, Reyna Silver has completed a structural survey, a geophysical survey ( Magneto-Telluric) and eight diamond drill holes (approximately 3,185 metres total) on the Medicine Springs project targeting the identification of a district-scale silver-rich Carbonate Replacement Deposit (“CRD”) mineralization system.


Reyna Silver has reported that the exploration work completed on Medicine Springs to date indicates strong silver and zinc mineralization has been found in seven out of nine sub-parallel structures cutting through an area 660 m wide and 1.75 km long. All the structures show multiple stages of high-grade mineralization surrounded by wide zones of dispersed mineralization. The structures continue in both directions well beyond the initial drilling area and many additional structures along and adjacent to the corridor remain to be tested.


These results reinforce Medicine Springs as a prime candidate for a large-scale, well-mineralized CRD System. (See Reyna Silver's announcement dated November 8, 2023, for further details).


c)  New Exploration Projects


Northern Lights is currently reviewing several exploration projects for potential acquisition. The projects being reviewed have a copper and/or gold focus and are in mining-friendly jurisdictions in North America.


The addition of one or more projects will provide further optionality to the Northern Lights project portfolio.
