Toronto, Ontario–.February 26, 2024 – Minnova Corp. (TSXV: MCI) (OTC Pink: AGRDF) (“Minnova” or the “Company”), is pleased to provide the following corporate update related to the Flin Flon Clean Energy Hub (FFCEH) development project, and option grant under the Company’s LTIP.

We are pleased to announce that we have entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with The Arctic Gateway Group (AGG), an indigenous-owned company that owns the Hudson Bay Railway and Port of Churchill infrastructure assets in northern Manitoba. The purpose of the MOU is to jointly explore and, if appropriate, pursue joint initiatives to enhance our respective operations and promote efficiency in the transportation, distribution, and export of green hydrogen and/or hydrogen carriers and other biofuels.

Gorden Glenn CEO commented, “This is an important FFCEH project development milestone. Global energy supply chains are changing with a focus on sustainable zero carbon energy options. Industries seeking zero carbon energy options, like green hydrogen produced from the FFCEH, are also placing increasing importance the logistics and transport solutions. Rail transport offers amongst the lowest amount of carbon dioxide emissions per ton of goods moved per kilometer. We look forward to working with AGG to support their business development initiatives, which in turn can support our zero-carbon energy production. AGG’s rail and port infrastructure will form a key logistics solution for distribution of FFCEH products within Canada and potentially for export via the Port of Churchill, Canada’s only Arctic seaport.”

Since announcing our intention to develop large scale electrolytic green hydrogen production in Flin Flon, Manitoba, we have initiated discussions with strategic partners, logistics providers, original equipment manufacturers and government funding agencies. Discussions are ongoing and we look forward to the announcement of additional strategic relationships in the coming months.

Importantly the global resource remains open to expansion, as does the reserve. The PL Gold Mine benefits from a short pre-production timeline forecast at 15 months, a valid underground mining permit (Environment Act 1207E), an existing 1,000 tpd processing plant, over 7,000 meters of developed underground ramp to -135 metres depth. The project is fully road accessible and close to existing mining infrastructure in the prolific Flin Flon Greenstone Belt of Central Manitoba.
