Toronto, September 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Churchill Resources Inc. (“Churchill” or the “Company”) (TSXV: CRI) is pleased to announce that Ms. Dawn Evans-Lamswood, M.Sc., P.Geo. has joined the Company as Senior Consultant to our Taylor Brook and Florence Lake nickel projects. The Company has also retained Dr. Derek Wilton, P.Geo., FGC as an independent “qualified person” for both projects. Both of these highly experienced consultants live in St. John’s, Newfoundland and are therefore close to the projects should intra-provincial travel restrictions be re-introduced.
Drilling operations at Taylor Brook are slated to commence early in October, and preparations including core shack construction, trail clearing and line-cutting are getting underway shortly. The Company has engaged Mercator Geological Services of Dartmouth, NS and Quinlan Exploration Inc. of Birchy Bay, NL to provide experienced geological field personnel and equipment for the exploration program. An existing semi-permanent camp 20km from the drilling area is being rented for the team and core logging and sampling. The drilling division of Springdale Forest Resources has been engaged to carry out the drill program.
Paul Sobie, CEO of Churchill stated, “We now have an excellent local exploration team to work our nickel projects with long-time Churchill manager Kevin Kivi and myself. We are very pleased to have Dawn and Derek join our team, as both have significant experience with Voisey’s Bay and NL nickel sulphide projects, and of course we have the expertise of the Altius team available to us as well. Dawn spent the majority of her career with Inco/Vale at Voisey’s Bay and was there from just after the discovery, and is the author of numerous papers on the mine’s geology and mineral deposits. Derek has recently stepped down from his Professorship at Memorial University and is a well-known expert on the geology and mineral deposits of NL, and is familiar with both CRI projects. Having local drillers from Springdale, local geological support, and an optimal camp already in the area will all help to contribute to an efficient exploration program at Taylor Brook.”

Any statement that involves discussions with respect to predictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, assumptions, future events or performance (often but not always using phrases such as "expects", or "does not expect", "is expected", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate", "plans", “proposed”, "budget", "scheduled", "forecasts", "estimates", "believes" or "intends" or variations of such words and phrases or stating that certain actions, events or results "may" or "could", "would", "might" or "will" be taken to occur or be achieved) are not statements of historical fact and may be forward-looking statements. In this news release, forward-looking statements relate to, among other things, the Company’s objectives, goals and exploration activities conducted and proposed to be conducted at the Company’s properties; future growth potential of the Company, including whether any proposed exploration programs at any of the Company’s properties will be successful; exploration results; and future exploration plans.
These forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions and estimates of management of the Company at the time such statements were made. Actual future results may differ materially as forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to materially differ from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such factors, among other things, include: the expected benefits to the Company relating to the exploration conducted and proposed to be conducted at the Company’s properties; failure to identify any additional mineral resources or significant mineralization; the preliminary nature of metallurgical test results; uncertainties relating to the availability and costs of financing needed in the future, including to fund any exploration programs on the Company’s properties; business integration risks; fluctuations in general macroeconomic conditions; fluctuations in securities markets; fluctuations in spot and forward prices of gold, silver, base metals or certain other commodities; fluctuations in currency markets (such as the Canadian dollar to United States dollar exchange rate); change in national and local government, legislation, taxation, controls, regulations and political or economic developments; risks and hazards associated with the business of mineral exploration, development and mining (including environmental hazards, industrial accidents, unusual or unexpected formations pressures, cave-ins and flooding); inability to obtain adequate insurance to cover risks and hazards; the presence of laws and regulations that may impose restrictions on mining and mineral exploration; employee relations; relationships with and claims by local communities and indigenous populations; availability of increasing costs associated with mining inputs and labour; the speculative nature of mineral exploration and development (including the risks of obtaining necessary licenses, permits and approvals from government authorities); the unlikelihood that properties that are explored are ultimately developed into producing mines; geological factors; actual results of current and future exploration; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be evaluated; soil sampling results being preliminary in nature and are not conclusive evidence of the likelihood of a mineral deposit; title to properties; ongoing uncertainties relating to the COVID-19 pandemic; and those factors described in the most recently filed management’s discussion and analysis of the Company.
