Chibougamau Independent Mines Completes Mont Sorcier (Fe, Ti02, V205) Acquisition

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 09/22/16 -- Chibougamau Independent Mines Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CBG) (STUT:CLL) is pleased to announce to shareholders that it has acquired 100% interest in 12 claims thereby giving Chibougamau Independent Mines Inc. ("Chibougamau") 100% interest in the Mont Sorcier iron/titanium/vanadium deposit now consisting of 57 claims located in Roy Township (32G16) 18 km east of the Town of Chibougamau.

The Mont Sorcier property covers two strataform, sub-vertical magmatic separation type magnetite/titanium/ vanadium deposits associated with gabbroic and anorthositic rocks of the Lac Dore complex, termed the North and South Zones. The North Zone is 2.4 km long by up to 137 m wide and the South Zone is 2.1 km long by up to 61 m wide. Both zones are open to depth.

The Mont Sorcier zones have undergone several stages of drilling and metallurgical test work. Work by Campbell Chibougamau Mines Ltd. and Quebec Government Laboratories generated the following historic resource.

  South Zone              102,800,000 tons grading 27.4% Fe and 1.05% Ti02
  North Zone              171,000,000 tons grading 30.0% Fe and 1.06% Ti02
  The resources described above are historic and met the industry standard
  of the day. A qualified person has not done sufficient work for         
  Chibougamau to classify the historical estimates as current mineral     
  resource and Chibougamau is not treating the historical estimates as    
  current mineral resources under National Instrument 43-101 and CIM      
  Standards for mineral resources and reserves. These historical resources
  should not be relied upon.

In addition to the zones of iron, titanium and vanadium, there are two sulphide horizons, the Sulphur Converting Zone, north of and parallel to the North Zone which extend for a strike length of at least 1,500 meters and having widths of up to 25 metres. The enclosing rocks are chloritized felsic tuff. The sulphide mineralization consists of massive and stringer pyrrhotite and pyrite with chalcopyrite (Cu) and sphalerite (Zn). Historical drilling also encountered gold and silver mineralization. Trenching was reported to have returned up to 1.22 gpt Au over 1.22 m with a grab sample at the same spot from a sulphide vein returned 21.81 gpt Au and 1.8% Cu. Grab samples from a magnetite vein returned up to 6.64% Zn and 4.07% Cu. Grab samples are selective by nature and are unlikely to be representative of average grades. Chibougamau staff has not yet returned to the showing in order to resample it.

As a result of the acquisition of the 12 claims which now give Chibougamau 100% interest in both the North and South Zones, Globex and Chibougamau have agreed that Globex's 3% Gross Metal Royalty (GMR) on the original Mont Sorcier claim group will be reduced to 1% GMR but will now apply to the expanded Mont Sorcier claim package.
