All technical information in this news release is taken from a National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) technical report entitled “Technical Report on the Mineral Resources of the Northshore Property, Priske Township, Ontario Canada” dated June 30, 2014 (the “2014 Technical Report”) which was prepared for GTA Financecorp Inc. (formerly GTA Mining and Resources Inc.) (“GTA”) by Gary Giroux, P. Eng. of Giroux Consultants Ltd. and J. Douglas Blanchflower, P. Geo. of Minorex Consulting Limited and subsequent public disclosures by prior owners of the Northshore Gold Property. All such disclosure was approved at the relevant times by a Qualified Person (as defined in NI 43-101). A copy of the 2014 Technical Report is available on SEDAR under GTA’s profile.

Further information on the Northshore Gold Property and the particulars of the exploration and evaluation work conducted on the Northshore Gold Property by CBLT Inc. (“CBLT”) and GTA are set out in CBLT’s and GTA’s respective public disclosure records. Details of the data verification procedures and limitations relating to: (i) the resource estimations are set out in the 2014 Technical Report, (ii) the open pit design evaluations are set out in GTA’s news release dated June 17, 2015, and (iii) the results of GTA’s 2018 drill program are set out in GTA’s news release dated February 25, 2019. The results of GTA and CBLT’s evaluations to date include inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the economic viability of this material will be realized in future studies. Omni intends to complete a current National Instrument 43-101 technical report on the Property in connection with the Transaction (the “2020 Technical Report”).
