VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Dec. 8, 2016) - Canada Coal Inc. (the "Company" or "Canada Coal"), (TSX VENTURE:CCK) Further to the Company's news release dated November 18th, 2016, Canada Coal wishes to confirm the terms and status of its non-binding letter of intent (the "LOI") with Honu Inc. The agreement with Honu is non-binding and contains no proposed terms or compensation for any potential transaction between the two parties. The LOI provides for a 90-day period of exclusivity, which will allow both parties to exchange information and maintain confidentiality as each party seeks to determine whether mutually beneficial business opportunities may exist. The LOI would not meet the definition of a COB Agreement or an RTO Agreement, as those terms are defined in TSX Venture Exchange policies. The Company will update the market if and when the relationship with Honu advances to anything more material, or if the LOI terminates (whether by mutual agreement or upon the expiry of the 90-day term). Should any specific transaction be agreed to among the parties, the issuer may be subject to a further trading halt, and additional requirements pursuant to TSX Venture Exchange policies.
