Oct 21, 2020

Transition Metals Corp has announced that SPC Metals has released encouraging assay results from drilling on its Aer-Kidd Ni-Cu-PGM Project located in the heart of the Sudbury Mining Camp. The eight hole, 4,670 metre drilling program was designed to test an area down dip of the historic Robinson Mine. The property is located between Vale's Totten Mine (10.1Mt @ 1.5% Ni, 1.97% Cu, 4.8g/t PGM)¹ located 1.8 kilometres along trend to the SW of the Aer-Kidd Property and KGHM's Victoria Development Project (14.5Mt @ 2.5% Ni, 2.5% Cu, 7.6 g/t PGM)² located 3.0 kilometres along trend NE.

Transition spun out the Aer-Kidd property to SPC in 2013 and currently owns approximately 23% of the outstanding shares of SPC Metals. SPC has raised over $12M since being formed and is targets to be publicly trading in early 2021.
