Newmont Lake Project Highlights:

Richard Savage, Crystal Lake President and CEO, commented: "To gain a foothold in such a prominent mining district with an exceptional land package featuring both scale and untapped exploration potential will drive value for CLM shareholders.  With Newmont Lake and our Nicobat Project in northwest Ontario, we're on track for a very exciting finish to 2018."

Dr. Peter Lightfoot, Crystal Lake Technical Adviser, added: "The combination of mapping programs by the B.C. Geological Survey and operators going back to the 1980's, coupled with new airborne electromagnetic methods, places the Newmont Lake Project in a whole new light. It is strategically positioned to achieve a place in the world's next great mining camp."

The Deal

To acquire a 100% interest in the 436 sq. km Newmont Lake Project, Crystal Lake must complete the following:

1)

$8 million in exploration expenditures at Newmont Lake over the next three years ($3 million in Year 1 and $2.5 million in each of Years 2 and 3);

2)

$2 million in cash option payments to Romios as follows: $250,000 on signing of Letter Agreement (paid) and a further $250,000 payable on each of 90 days, 180 days and 270 days following regulatory approval of transaction; a final $1 million payment upon Crystal Lake earning its 100% interest;

3)

A total of 12 million shares of Crystal Lake will be distributed to Romios over a three-year period ? 4 million each year, with the first 4 million shares issued following regulatory approval of the transaction (subject to normal hold period and a "lock up" provision).

Crystal Lake will be the operator during the earn-in period, and Romios will have the right to appoint one director to the CLM board.

Romios will retain a 2% Net Smelter Returns Royalty (NSR) on the Newmont Lake Project, or on any after-acquired claims within a 5 km radius of the current boundary of the project, which may be reduced at any time to a 1% NSR on the payment of $2 million per 0.5% NSR.

The Letter Agreement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval and the execution of a Definitive Agreement within 45 days.

Dr. Lightfoot concluded, "The planned upcoming drill program at Burgundy Ridge should further underscore the compelling potential of this project. We look forward to extensive data compilation and reinterpretation over the coming months, and quickly advancing this exciting project."
