Xander Resources Inc.


Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire - November 17, 2022 – Xander Resources Inc. (“Xander” or the “Company”) (TSXV:XND) (OTC:XNDRF) (FSX:1XI) a North American mineral acquisition and exploration company focused on the development of drill-ready battery and precious metal projects, is pleased to announce that its technical team has mobilized and arrived onsite in preparation for the start of drilling for its near-term drill program at its Timmins Nickel Project (the “Project”) in located in Timmins, Ontario. The Company has begun clearing access roads and the construction of drill pads in preparation for drilling.

The drill program will commence in the coming weeks and is anticipated to comprise between 2,500 and 4,000 metres with a focus on the Company’s “North Block” of claims, in particular near Canada Nickel Company’s (“CNC”) recently identified Reid Discovery which has already through early exploration delineated a mineralized footprint 90% as large as CNC’s Crawford Project where CNC has completed a preliminary economic assessment only 20 months after the commencement of exploration drilling that indicates 25-year mine with an after-tax NPV8% of $1.2 billion.

Deepak Varshney, CEO of Xander Resources stated: “We are very excited to have boots on the ground and look forward to the start of drilling and beginning our journey in Timmins. Commencing exploratory drilling is an important milestone and we believe that this project is part of the journey we will need to take in North America to secure a domestic supply of nickel.”

The Company is also pleased to announce that, subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”), it is proceeding with a non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of up to $600,000 through the issuance of up to 17,142,857 flow-through units (the “FT Units”) at a price of $0.035 per FT Unit.  

Each FT Unit will consist of one flow-through common share of the Company (the “FT Shares”) and one transferable common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”) exercisable at $0.07 per common share (a “Share”) for a period of two (2) years from the closing date of the Private Placement.

The FT Shares will qualify as flow-through shares for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada).  The proceeds raised from the sale of the Private Placement will be used by the Company to fund exploration programs that qualify as “Canadian Exploration Expenses” and “flow-through mining expenditures”, as those terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada), and, in particular, Xander’s Timmins Nickel Project.  The Company will renounce said expenditures to the investors for the taxation year ending December 31, 2022.
