Vancouver, British Columbia - January 31, 2024 (Newsfile Corp.) ( Newswire) Benjamin Hill Mining Corp. (CSE: BNN) (OTCQB: BNNHF) (FSE: 5YZ0) ("BNN" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent (the "LOI") with Aion Mining Corp. ("Aion") outlining the general terms and conditions of a proposed transaction whereby the Company will acquire a further interest in Aion to bring the Company's total interest in Aion to 40% (the "Proposed Transaction").

Key Points to the La Estrella Coal Project:

  • The property contains eight known seams of metallurgical and thermal coal from recent and historical diamond drilling programs and surface exposures;
  • The project is fully permitted under Colombian Law, including environmental licencing;
  • Pending updated NI 43-101 by former SRK Principal Geologist responsible for 2012 historical report;
  • Extensive site preparation and infrastructure upgrades currently underway.

The Proposed Transaction

It is anticipated that the aggregate purchase price for the Proposed Transaction will be $1,875,000, payable as follows:

  • $500,000 in cash on closing; and
  • $1,375,000 in common shares of the Company at a price per share equal to the closing of the share price of the Company on the closing date of the Proposed Transaction, subject to CSE policies.

Aion is a non-arm's length party to the Company by reason of sharing a common director, Cole McClay. The terms of the LOI were reviewed and approved by a committee of the Company's independent directors.

Completion of the transaction is subject to customary conditions and any other conditions agreed to by the parties in a definitive share purchase agreement (the "Definitive Agreement") including: receipt of all necessary approvals and consents on terms satisfactory to the parties, and completion of a due diligence investigation into Aion by the Company and its representatives.

There are no assurance or guarantees that the proposed transaction will be completed, whether on the terms and conditions described above or at all. The Company will provide further updates as they become available.
