CopAur Minerals Grants An Option on the Williams Property to Omega Pacific Resources Inc.

News Release – Vancouver, British Columbia – March 1, 2024: CopAur Minerals Inc. (“CopAur” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: CPAU) (OTCQX:COPAF) is pleased to announce that it has granted a three phase option (the “Option”)to Omega Pacific Resources Inc. (“Omega”) to earn up to a 100% interest in the Williams Property located in the Toodoggone region of Northern British Columbia under the terms of an option agreement dated February 29, 2024 (the “Option Agreement”). The Option is subject to regulatory approval. The objective is to advance the Williams Property, and provide CopAur with a share position in Omega and additional cash to continue to advance its exploration efforts in Nevada.

Under the first option, Omega can earn a 51% interest in the Williams Property by paying to CopAur C$1 million in cash, issuing 3 million shares to CopAur upon Canadian Securities Exchange approval of the Option Agreement and incurring C$3 million in exploration expenditures on or before the first year anniversary of the Option Agreement. If Omega exercises the first option, Omega has a second option to acquire an additional 29% interest (for a total of 80%) by completing another $3 million in exploration expenditures and paying $500,000 in cash and issuing 2 million shares to CopAur on or before the second anniversary of the Option Agreement. If Omega exercises the second option, Omega will have a third option to acquire the remaining 20% by paying an additional amount to CopAur equal to the fair market value of the remaining 20% as determined by an independent valuator, which Omega may satisfy by the payment of cash or the issuance of additional shares of Omega on or before the third year anniversary of the option agreement.

In the event that Omega does not exercise the second option to acquire the additional 29% interest, Omega will relinquish and transfer back to CopAur a 1.01% interest in the Williams Property so that CopAur will hold a 51% interest and Omega will hold a 49% interest and the parties will form a an initial 51/49% joint venture. If Omega exercises the second option but does not exercise the third option to acquire a 100% interest, the parties will be deemed to form an initial 80/20% joint venture to continue to advance the Williams Property.

The Williams property is a consolidated land package comprised of mining claims totalling 9,731 hectares. The property has substantial gold and copper discovery potential and hosts two large exploration targets, the T-Bill prospect, which is prospective for mesothermal style gold mineralization, and the GIC porphyry prospect, which is prospective for porphyry copper-gold-molybdenum style mineralization.

CEO Jeremy Yaseniuk stated, “We have successfully finalized a deal on the Williams Property with Omega Pacific, a new company that will advance the Williams Property and provide CopAur with enough cash and shares to fund CopAur’s Nevada exploration while retaining an interest in the potential of the Williams property. This eliminates the immediate need for financing at today’s dilutive prices and provides us with working capital for over a year. Additionally, this transaction will leave CopAur with 20% of the entire project for the long term unless Omega exercises the third option. If completed, this structure will inject 1.5 million dollars into CopAur. If the first and second options are fully exercised, CopAur will receive 5 million shares of Omega and 6 million dollars to advance the project, while retaining a 20% interest. This is an outstanding deal for CopAur shareholders. It will enable our management team to focus on expanding our Nevada portfolio, particularly the Kinsley Gold property, and allow our shareholders to continue benefiting from the value of Williams.”
