Accend Capital Options Increased Acreage Around Silverside Cobalt Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 1, 2017) - Accend Capital Corporation (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ADP.H) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement (the "Option Agreement") pursuant to which it has been granted an option to acquire approximately 2,400 additional hectares surrounding the Silverside Cobalt Property from Caamo Capital Corp. and Gino Chitaroni (collectively, the "Vendors").

On May 29, 2017 the Company announced that it would acquire (the "Transaction") approximately 384 hectares in Lundy Township, approximately 30 kilometers Northwest of Cobalt, Ontario known as the Silverside Cobalt Property (the "Property"), on which historic exploration dates back to the early 1900's. Following a review of recent exploration work on the Property, the Company has decided to option a number of additional claims surrounding the Property in a total package of approximately 2,400 additional hectares.

Pursuant to the Option Agreement, the Company has the right to acquire the additional claims at any time for a period of ninety days following approval of the acquisition of the Property by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). Total consideration for the additional claims consists of cash payments totaling $175,000 and 250,000 common shares in the Company. In consideration for the granting of this option, the Company will pay a one-time non-refundable deposit of $25,000 to the Vendors and will issue 50,000 common shares upon the approval of the acquisition of the Property by the Exchange, both these amounts will be deducted from the consideration payable under the Option Agreement should the option be exercised by the Company.

Simon Clarke, a director of the Company stated, "the acquisition of the Silverside Cobalt Property and the additional acreage available pursuant to the Option Agreement, provides a strong entry into the cobalt sector at a time when cobalt is evolving into a key electric metal for lithium ion and other batteries. The significant growth projected in these industries is anticipated to drive increasing demand for cobalt. There is also a need to reduce dependence on traditional areas of cobalt supply where concerns around conflict mining and ethical production persist; our strategy is to focus on building a quality asset base which can help address these concerns."

At the present time, the Company does not consider the additional acreage provided in the Option Agreement to be material to the Transaction or the Property. The Company does not intend to prepare a technical report in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects for this additional acreage in connection with the Transaction. Readers are reminded that completion of the Transaction, and the further transactions contemplated by the Option Agreement, remains subject to a number of conditions including completion of satisfactory due diligence, completion of any necessary financing; completion of a technical report in respect of the Property, approval of the Exchange and such other conditions as are customary in transactions of this nature. For further information concerning the Transaction, Readers are encouraged to review the Company's news release of May 29, 2017 and the filing statement which will be prepared by the Company in connection with the Transaction and made available under the Company's profile on SEDAR.
