VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lakewood Exploration Inc. (CSE: LWD) (the “Company” or “Lakewood“) is pleased to announce that it has engaged Coeur d’Alene Mining Contractors to perform minor rehabilitation work ahead of a Phase I drill campaign, which is expected to commence in the coming weeks at the Company’s flagship past-producing Silver Strand Mine in the Coeur d’Alene mining district of Idaho.

The contractor will bring the mine into United State Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) compliance, complete rehabilitation works, develop 45 feet of underground drift (see Figure 1) and open up a 15-foot by 15-foot drilling bay (see Figure 2) to allow for an underground exploration drill to efficiently and more accurately test the potential orebody and its depth potential.

Lakewood is on track to commence its Phase I, 2500-3000 metre drill program at Silver Strand before the end of Q3/2021, which will include both underground and surface core drilling.

“The underground rehab work brings this historical mine area into MSHA compliance, while concurrently establishing a more cost-effective way to test the depth potential at Silver Strand through underground drilling,” stated President, Morgan Lekstrom. “This rehab work will also provide us with future drilling and potential development opportunities as we define the depth and plunge of the orebody and surrounding sub-parallel veins. We believe the depth potential beyond the 90-metre level where historical mining concluded is significant, and we look forward to initiating our inaugural drill program at the Silver Strand Mine in the coming weeks.”

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lakewood Exploration Inc. (CSE: LWD) (the “Company” or “Lakewood”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a share purchase agreement dated effective August 9, 2021 between the Company, 1304562 B.C. Ltd. (“BCCO”) and the sole shareholder of BCCO (the “Definitive Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company will acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of BCCO (the “Proposed Transaction”). BCCO owns a 100% interest in the Eliza Silver Project and the Silverton Silver Mine.

The Eliza Silver Project

The Eliza Silver Project is located along strike of the Hamilton Mining District, Nevada’s highest-grade silver district, which produced 40 million (M) ounces (oz) silver with grades up to 25,000 grams per tonne (g/t) between 1876-1890.

Surface samples collected at the nearby California Mine grading 24,956 g/t silver (Ag)* and information gained from a detailed geologic map, indicate that Eliza and the Hamilton District contain high-grade Ag mineralization hosted by the same formation; however, no significant work or drilling has been done on the project in over half a century.

The Lakewood team plans to deploy a new geologic model, which will explore the down-thrown side of the Eberhardt Fault, which separates the Hamilton District from the Eliza Property. The California Mine, which mined ore grading between 5,621 to 18,737 g/t silver equivalent (AgEq)* in the 1870s is also located south of the Eberhardt Fault, indicating that very high-grade mineralization can be found within the Eliza fault block.

The Silverton Silver Mine

The past-producing Silverton Silver Mine is located in East Nevada’s “Silver Alley” with high-grade historic production of up to 933 g/t silver. Despite significant surface exposures and grab samples grading up to 499 g/t Ag and 1.99 g/t Au, no modern-day drilling or subsurface exploration techniques have been conducted on the project since the 1920s. The first modern work is currently underway, including satellite imaging which has shown similar colour anomalies to Kinross’ 15M oz Au Round Mountain mine (see Figure 1).

“The geology of the Eliza project suggests that it could be a down-dropped extension of the 40 Moz Hamilton Silver project,” stated President, Morgan Lekstrom. “The addition of Eliza and Silverton, two highly prospective silver projects in two of the most prolific silver districts in the USA, complement our growing portfolio of western US focused silver assets, which includes the past producing Silver Strand mine in Idaho. The acquisition of these projects reaffirms our strategy of adding shareholder value by acquiring silver assets that have both large exploration upside and near-term production potential.”

The Transaction

Pursuant to the terms of the Definitive Agreement, upon the closing of the Proposed Transaction, Lakewood will acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding securities of BCCO in consideration for: (i) the issuance of 3,370,000 common shares of the Company (the “Payment Shares”) to the sole shareholder of BCCO, and (ii) a cash payment of $20,000. In addition, the Company will issue 300,000 common shares to certain arm’s length third party finders in connection with the Proposed Transaction (the “Finders’ Shares”). The Payment Shares and Finders’ Shares will be subject to voluntary hold periods, with 25% of the shares released on the date that is 3 months following the Closing Date and an additional 25% released every 3 months thereafter until all shares have been released.

The Proposed Transaction remains subject to certain closing conditions including, without limitation, (a) the receipt by the Company of all necessary corporate and regulatory approvals; and (b) each party’s representations and warranties in the Definitive Agreement being true and correct in all aspects as of the Closing Date, and each party meeting its terms and conditions and completing its covenants and obligations as contained therein. There can be no guarantees that the Proposed Transaction will be completed as contemplated or at all. The Proposed Transaction is anticipated to close on or before October 31, 2021.

Lakewood Exploration Samples 2,744.91 g/t Silver & 4.80 g/t Gold on Silver Strand Mine in Idaho

Maurice:

Joining us for conversation is Morgan Lekstrom, the president of Lakewood Exploration (CSE: LWD: OTC: LWDEF). It’s great to have you join us today to share the latest developments on Lakewood Exploration and the exciting flagship Silver Strand, which has the makings of becoming the next pure silver play in the United States. Before we begin, Mr. Lekstrom, please introduce us to Lakewood Exploration and the opportunity the company presents to shareholders.

Morgan Lekstrom:

Lakewood is a new silver company. We’re a pure silver play. We are looking at our flagship asset in Idaho, the Silver Strand Mine. It was a past-producing mine, and we are looking to go in there, explore it, put the ore body to depth. It was mined at a very shallow depth, only 90 meters. There’s so much potential there. It was held in by a bunch of feuding parties back in the day. The whole land package has never been consolidated like what we’ve done.

Morgan Lekstrom:

And by consolidating this land package, we’re able to get a five-and-a-half-kilometer strike put together,  and which allows us the opportunity to explore the area. From what we’re seeing on the surface and in the underground, and we’ll talk about those news releases later, it looks very promising to have a large, large resource and payoff for shareholders, but also near-term production potential, which is the pillar of what we are looking to accomplish at Lakewood.

Morgan Lekstrom:

Lakewood Exploration is looking for that large exploration payoff, near-term production potential, but also acquisitions at the same time that fit that model. We do have a triple-pronged approach and our big concentration right now is on that large exploration payoff at Silver Strand.

Maurice:

The value proposition is quite compelling. Let’s go on-site. Mr. Lekstrom, please introduce us to your flagship Silver Strand and acquaint us with the region and some of your neighbors.

Morgan Lekstrom:

Silver Strand is our flagship mine. It’s in Idaho, in the Silver Valley-Coeur d’Alene, which is one of the most prolific areas on the planet for silver.  The region has produced nearly 1.3 billion ounces of silver. Companies such as Hecla and Coeur have their start there. You also have the deep mines within the region, the Lucky Friday Mine, Galena, and Sunshine respectively.

Morgan Lekstrom:

There are not a lot of regions in the world that have extracted as much silver as the Silver Valley-Coeur d’Alene. The Silver Strand is one of the last, I would say, unexplored assets in this area. This is such an exciting opportunity for us. As a pure silver company, we look forward to putting this to depth.  Our neighbors in the valley have mines go down to 2,000 meters. We have only scratched the surface, as the Silver Strand is at 90 meters of the original workings.

Morgan Lekstrom:

We’re going to start drilling the Silver Strand, with an emphasis to start pushing that ore body down to prove it. The unique thing about Silver Strand too is that we have something called a gold credit.  What that means is there’s a portion of the ore that comes out that has gold in it. And unlike the rest of the mines around the area, this is actually very high-grade gold. What we’d consider higher-grade, which is 5 grams a tonne of what we’re looking at is 5 to even 10 grams a tonne.

Morgan Lekstrom:

To put that into terms, most mines are built on 1 gram a tonne or less. Silver mines. Most mines are built on 100, 200 grams a tone. We’re seeing anywhere from 300 to 2,700 grams a ton out of Silver Strand (Press Release), and this is just the top. If anything is proven in this area, the deeper you go, the better the grade. We’re looking forward to running our exploration program and getting going on this.

Maurice:

The Silver Strand has a historical resource. What is the exploration plan and timeline moving forward to have a complaint NI 43-101?

Morgan Lekstrom:

We’re currently working on our 43-101 in the background, and we plan update the market by the end of summer. We are looking to run the first-stage of our exploration program, as we’ve been saying, by the end of late summer. We’re working on our plans right now. I work all the time with our geology team and making sure we’re looking at the right area and the right mix of geology. We don’t want to do things in an unmethodical way.

Morgan Lekstrom:

In our latest announcement, we were proud to convey that we brought on Rob Burk (Press Release), which is just a tremendous value add for us. Ron is an exceptional geologist and exceptional exploration leader. He’s worked for some huge companies like Centerra Minnig and TecK Resources. Having calls with Ron and having that advisor in the background has helped us already hone in on what we’re looking at in terms of exploration.  Also, how we can make the Silver Strand resource 43-101 compliant, build it out and make it a huge discovery.  The upside potential of this resource is massive. I mean, if anything from that area, I mean, anything as an indicator, it’s there, in my opinion.

Maurice:

Having the intellectual capital of someone like Mr. Burk doesn’t show up on the balance sheet, but those are the accretive moves that a company has to make to achieve success. Now that we know the plan, let’s test the ‘Proof of Concept’ to date. Since our inaugural interview two months ago, Lakewood Exploration has had some exceptional sample grades. What can you share with us?

Morgan Lekstrom:

Absolutely. As stated earlier, we just announced 2,744 grams a tonne (Press Release).  Keep in mind, most mines are built on 100 to 200 grams a tonne silver. We’re getting that from our existing underground, which everyone said, “Oh, it’s been mined out.” Our geologists go in there with new techniques, new technology. They take chip samples in areas, and it’s just a  key indicator for us that there’s that high-grade mineralization. We’re seeing it on the surface as well.

Morgan Lekstrom:

There are outcrops all over the place. Having the ability to walk along this 5.5 kilometers strike length has helped us and help build the Silver Strand story out, along with the upside potential of this resource. Being able to walk on ground that hasn’t been walked up to our Burnt Cabin asset gives us confidence that we may be onto something very intriguing.  And if anything that is shown by our results of that between 1,700 and 2,700 grams a ton just from chip samples, there’s a huge potential here.

Maurice:

Certainly sounds like it is. Well, let me ask you this, were the sample grades a surprise, or is this what the team had expected?

Morgan Lekstrom:

You expect good results, or you hope for good results. But honestly, I wasn’t expecting to see 2,700 grams a ton right away off a chip sample. It was unexpected, but it was also encouraging. These high grades reaffirmed to the team in the background that we’re doing the right thing. We’re looking in the right areas. And that when we begin the first phase of our exploration program, we’re going to be looking in the right area.

Morgan Lekstrom:

We have something a lot of companies don’t have, which is that existing underground, the ability to go in the historical mining there that was just hand to mouth small scale. We have the ability to blow this resource out big and score some value for the shareholders.

Maurice:

Multilayer question here, and you referenced drilling, what activity is currently being conducted on-site, and is the goal to twin the historic holes?

Morgan Lekstrom:

I can’t provide the full details on that currently, as we are finalizing the plans, and then we’ll have a news release around that. But I can tell you that we’re looking at extending the current non-43-101 compliant resource to depth, to use the words you used, to ‘Proof of Concept’, which is more than a concept for us. We want to show that identity between the mineralization we’re seeing on the surface, the gold credit, see how far that goes, and we also want to get this thing to depth.

Morgan Lekstrom:

Like I said before, a lot of these mines in the area go down to like 2,000 meters, and we’re only at 90. For us, it’s all about drilling and getting down there and chasing that resource down.

Maurice:

Before we leave the site, what is the next unanswered question for Lakewood Exploration? When can we expect a response, and what will determine success?

Morgan Lekstrom:

I’d say the next unanswered question for Lakewood is, what’s in the pipeline as far as acquisitions? And all I can say on that is stay tuned. What’s going on at Silver Strand for drilling? We’re looking forward to drilling in the late summer. Plus, we’re adding very, very competent, meaningful people to our team.

Morgan Lekstrom:

My background as a mine builder, I’ve worked all over the world building mines for large companies, small companies. It changes the dynamic of the team when you have geologists, amazing capital markets people, and mine building folks in the mix. We do have what it takes to take something through exploration, make the resource huge, and build it. That’s a very unique position for us and for the mining industry.

Maurice:

Yes, sir. The synergies complement one another with Lakewood Exploration. You have experts with a proven pedigree of success. You were brought on board recently, as well as Mr. Burk, and who else was added to the team, sir?

Morgan Lekstrom:

We have Lawrence Roulston. We have Ron Burk, like you mentioned. Myself. We have Kristina Pillon. She’s our head of IR. She’s unbelievable in what she does as well. And just lots of energy in our team so far. We’re going to add a lot more people in the right time and the right positions.

Morgan Lekstrom:

We added our chief geologist, I can’t forget him, Phil Mulholland. Phil is an exceptional geologist with a proven track record in the Western US, in Idaho as well. He’s worked all around the Coeur d’Alene area. He’s worked all over Montana. He’s worked for big companies like Barrick. I just can’t say enough good things about Phil and his dedication to the profession, but also to the Silver Strand project. The ideas that flow, we’re just approaching it with a very unique and new technology.

Morgan Lekstrom:

And Phil’s  the right person to be working with that side of it, his ideas and the crew, between him and Ron and how we all communicate together. We have Joness Lang in the background too who’s an also a proven capital markets expertthere and he’s senior VP for Maple gold.

Maurice:

Switching gears, let’s look at some numbers. Mr. Lekstrom, please provide the capital structure for Lakewood Exploration.

Morgan Lekstrom:

We have about 33.8 million shares out. We have about 7.5 million share free trading right now. We’ve got 7.5 million warrants out, and we’ve had a very good run so far. Very successful. I think we’re hitting all the right tunes and all the right notes with our capital structure. It’s very tightly held. We’re in a very good place from a capitalization standpoint and a treasury standpoint. We just raised 3.5 million dollars with 14 million shares. We are well-positioned to execute and to execute on exactly what we’re saying and won’t need more capital anytime soon.

Maurice:

You’re also rewarding shareholders. Speaking of the market cap, Lakewood Exploration has been on a roll. Since our inaugural interview on May 31st, the stock was trading at $.29, and since has moved up to $.76. Congratulations, sir.

Morgan Lekstrom:

Thanks, Maurice. It’s  exciting and positive to see the markets responding to the Silver Strand and the Lakewood story, but also to the capital structure and how this whole company has been structured is  important to a shareholder to know that there is a lot of room to grow, but it’s also tightly held. It’s not just a large vehicle of shares out everywhere. We’re  making sure that we have the ability to bring the value of the shareholders in a meaningful way.

Maurice:

And speaking of shareholders, I am a proud shareholder, by the way.

Morgan Lekstrom:

Oh, thank you.

Maurice:

Honored. Before we close, Mr. Lekstrom, what would you like to say to shareholders?

Morgan Lekstrom:

And I know I said this earlier, be on the lookout for the execution of our three-pronged approach on the acquisition side, stay tuned.

Maurice:

Looking forward to it. What keeps you up at night that we don’t know about?

Morgan Lekstrom:

I’ve been on many projects around the world, and there’s been a lot of times I’ve been kept up late at night for reasons I don’t want to go into it. But here with Lakewood Exploration and the Silver Strand. I’m not kept up at night because we have such a competent team. We have such good leadership in the right places. If there is something, we work it out right away. We have enough credible experience around us to solve challenges and not to delay. It’s a unique position as a company, but even for me to be the president of the company to have that ability to lean on technical experts like Ron Burk, to lean on our VP of exploration Lawrence Roulston when we need to and collaborate and have those great conversations. It’s unique.

Maurice:

Last question, what did I forget to ask?

Morgan Lekstrom:

As much as I say, we’re in the makings of a great mining company, I just remind people that silver is one of these commodities that isn’t just a hedge. It’s used in manufacturing. It’s used in making of video cards for cryptocurrency mining. It’s used in making a semiconductor. It’s used in making the microchips through silver pace.

Morgan Lekstrom:

This is not a commodity to be taken lightly. If the historic proves anything, we’re underperforming compared to our other commodities. I think there’s a  big opportunity here. I’m a silver bull, but I think proven from the technology side and the market side, I think we’re onto something amazing here. Lakewood is getting positioned and we are positioned to take advantage of that for our shareholders.

Maurice:

Mr. Lekstrom, for someone that wants to learn more about Lakewood Exploration, please provide those contact details one more time.

Morgan Lekstrom:

Take a look at our website, www.lakewoodexploration.com. If you go to the bottom, Kristina Pillon’s phone number and email are there. She’s fantastic to speak with, if any questions need to be relayed up to me, she can do that.

They’ve put a  tremendous amount of effort and it shows. All right. Mr. Lekstrom, it’s been a pleasure speaking with you, sir. Wishing you and Lakewood Expiration the absolute best.

Lakewood Exploration Appoints Ron Burk as Technical Advisor

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lakewood Exploration (CSE: LWD / OTC: LWDEF) (“Lakewood” or the “Company”) is pleased to welcome Ron Burk as a Technical Advisor to the Company.

Mr. Burk is an exploration geologist with over 30 years of experience in the minerals industry, primarily focused on identifying and evaluating exploration properties. He has held numerous senior roles, including Vice President Exploration at Centerra Gold Inc. and Vice President of Exploration and Chief Geologist at Silver Standard Resources Inc. (now SSR Mining), where he contributed to discoveries that resulted in the definition of a world-class silver resource at the Pitarrilla project in Durango, Mexico and major gold resources forming the Snowfield and Brucejack deposits in northern British Columbia, Canada. Prior to joining Silver Standard in 2004, Ron had worked since 1989 as an exploration geologist for Teck Resources Ltd. and its predecessors, focused on target generation and property evaluations in the Americas.

“The addition of Ron Burk as an advisor brings even more depth to our technical team as we advance the Company’s recently acquired past-producing Silver Stand mine towards an initial drill program later this year,” said Lakewood President, Morgan Lekstrom. “Mr. Burk’s extensive experience, including nearly a decade in senior roles for a silver-focused mining company (Silver Standard), will be invaluable as we advance Silver Strand and evaluate new acquisition targets as part of our growth strategy.”https://s.yimg.com/rq/darla/4-8-0/html/r-sf-flx.html

About Lakewood Exploration

Lakewood Exploration is a junior resource company that controls the Lacy Gold Project in British Columbia, Canada, and the past-producing Silver Strand Mine in the Coeur d’Alene Mining District in Idaho, USA. The Company is rapidly advancing towards an initial drill program at Silver Strand with the aim of defining a large silver resource within a belt that has produced more than 1.2 billion ounces of silver to-date. Geologic studies indicate that the Silver Strand Mine is hosted by the Revett formation, suggesting the potential for significant down dip extensions as demonstrated by other major mines in the district. Previous operators were solely interested in developing the known shallow mineralization, with the mine’s lowest level extending only 90 metres below surface. Lakewood strives to become a multi-mine silver producer.

Mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on the Company’s property.

On Behalf of the Board of Lakewood Exploration Inc.
