TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2023 /CNW/ - LAURION Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSXV: LME) and (OTCPINK: LMEFF) ("LAURION" or the "Corporation"), a mid-stage junior exploration and development company focused primarily on its wholly-owned Ishkoday Project, wishes to announce that its Annual and Special Meeting of shareholders (the "Meeting") will be held on Wednesday, November 15, 2023 at 12:00 p.m. (Eastern time). LAURION will host a corporate update immediately after the Meeting to discuss the Corporation's business strategy and objectives.

The following items of business will be considered at the Meeting:

  • Setting the number of directors of the Corporation to be elected at the Meeting at three.
  • The election of the Corporation's directors. As announced in the Corporation's news release dated September 29, 2023, Nick Ierfino resigned as a director of the Corporation due to personal reasons, effective September 30, 2023, and will not be standing for re-election at the Meeting. LAURION remains confident in the capabilities of its dedicated board and management teams, and is steadfast in its belief that the current composition of the Board of Directors leaves the Corporation well-positioned for continued future advancement. Moving forward, LAURION will continue to leverage its relationships with key service providers and experts to support these teams, as it deems appropriate.
  • The reappointment of RSM LLP as auditors of the Corporation for the ensuing year.
  • The approval and ratification of the Corporation's "rolling" stock option plan.

The timing of the Meeting was determined in consideration of the timing and execution of LAURION's current summer/autumn exploration program.

General Corporate Update

The Corporation's 2023 autumn drilling campaign has commenced and is comprised of approximately 3,675 metres of NQ drilling. The drill program is focused on targeting the northeast extension of the Sturgeon River Mine structure at the Ishkoday Project, located 220 km northeast of Thunder Bay and 28 km northeast of the Township of Beardmore.

Fieldwork will continue as long as the weather conditions prevail. Utilization of LiDAR, the magnetic geophysical survey completed earlier this year, in conjunction with the Corporation's 3D model, has proved to be most successful in structural and mapping work completed to date.
