(TSX-V: KAP) ("Kapuskasing") and Ubique Minerals Limited (UBQ) ("Ubique") announce that they have signed a Letter of Intent ("LOI") which contemplates Kapuskasing granting Ubique an option to earn a 55% or greater interest in Kapuskasing's Daniel's Harbour Zinc property in western Newfoundland. The property comprises 42 claim units covering an aggregate area of 1,326 hectares, adjoining Ubique's Daniel's Harbour property to its west and making for a contiguous property area of more than 4,000 hectares.

- On the date of signing of the definitive agreement, $10,000 cash and 500,000 shares of Ubique;
- Prior to March 9, 2019, a minimum work expenditure of $12,000 and file an assessment report;

- Prior to February 28, 2020, make a minimum additional work expenditure of $200,000;
- Prior to the 2 year anniversary from the definitive agreement date issue an additional 200,000 common shares of Ubique;
- Prior to February 28, 2021, a minimum additional work expenditure of $300,000, of which expenditures will include any payments and commitments needed to be made to the underlying vendors of the optioned property;
- Upon Ubique having made the above expenditures and payments; Ubique will have earned a 55% interest in the property. Ubique will be granted the option to earn an additional 15% interest in the property by spending an additional $400,000 on exploration and paying the underlying vendors a cash payment of $40,000 as required by the underlying agreement with the vendors.
Upon UBQ earning either a 55% or 70% interest in the property, the companies will form a joint venture to continue exploration, or KAP may elect to grant UBQ the right to earn an additional 5% interest in the property for every additional work expenditure of $100,000 to a limit of 95% ownership by UBQ, at which time the agreement provides for KAP's interest to be converted to a 2% Net Smelter Royalty ("NSR").
UBQ will then have the right to buy back 1.75% of the NSR for $2,000,000. The underlying vendors are entitled to a NSR of 3% of which 2% may be repurchased for $2,000,000. In addition, the underlying vendors are entitled to a bonus payment in the event that the Operator delineates a National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource of a minimum of 5,000,000 tonnes of ore with a grade of at least 7% zinc.
