What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?

We are a new company with an incredible asset. Liquidity as a new issuer is a challenge that is resolved through time and investor relations efforts. We are managing both. We are an exploration stage company and all of the inherent risks to that type of issuer apply to MNK.

What do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?

The Company is just getting started in the evaluation of its sizeable Montcalm project, which would be incredibly challenging and very costly to assemble in the current environment in the Timmins Mining Camp.The access and infrastructure to the project, the adjacent former Montcalm Mine, and the Timmins Camp is exceptional. In the first months of operation, the Company vetted the capability of new geophysical technology through its phase 1 exploration program, and discovered a number of previously undetected, high priority targets that now require drill testing. The historical exploration and drill density (48 holes over 40 km2) on a project of this scale, adjacent to a high-grade nickel sulphide mine, has been sporadic at best and the Company is continuing to explore and drill in the near future, once the expanded permits are received. The Company has tight capital structure with under 15 million shares outstanding and is led by an experienced and motivated team.

What are the top 3 key investor takeaways?

Strategic battery metals exploration opportunity, covering 40 square kilometers, adjacent to a former high grade nickel copper cobalt mine. Significant advances in geophysics is identifying never before detected targets.

Incredible location, access and infrastructure for cost-effective exploration.

The Company has tight capital structure with under 15 million shares outstanding and is led by an experienced and motivated team.
