MARK BENNETT Mark Bennett founded Sirius Resources (acquired for AUD$1.8 billion in 2015) and oversaw the development of the Nova-Bollinger nickel-copper mine in Western Australia. WINNIPEG, MB - September 25th, 2023 - Anacott Acquisition Corporation (TSXV: AAC.P) ("Anacott") is pleased to announce that Ramp Metals Inc. ("Ramp"), Anacott's proposed merger partner, has appointed Dr. Mark Bennett as a Strategic Advisor. Dr. Bennett is a prominent, PhD-qualified geologist in the global mining industry with over 30 years of experience in capital raising, mineral exploration and establishing mines, having held various technical, operational, executive and board roles in Australia, Canada, West Africa, Europe and the United States. "Ramp has hit the ground running and added a key technical and strategic advisor who is very familiar with the exploration model of the Rottenstone property," commented Anacott CEO Michael Romanik. "The timing couldn't be better as the company gears up for the maiden drill program to test the exciting targets recently identified from the large airborne HTDEM + Mag survey completed in the spring." With a proven track record in the mining industry, Dr. Bennett will draw from his expertise and extensive experience and is expected to play a pivotal role in stewarding Ramp in advancing its flagship Rottenstone SW property. Dr. Bennett will be advising on all aspects of geology while providing guidance to Ramp's management team through the discovery process. Ramp's VP of Exploration, Garrett Smith, said, "We are thrilled to have Mark join the Ramp team at such a crucial time in the company's history. He brings a wealth of experience in the discovery process and, specifically, nickel sulphide deposits. With our Rottenstone Eye target showing striking similarities to the setting of the Nova-Bollinger deposit, we could not think of a better strategic fit for our team than the geologist who was instrumental in the discovery of Nova." Throughout his career, Dr. Bennett has been instrumental in several discoveries which include the staking and initial drilling of the Wahgnion gold mine in Burkina Faso for Western Mining Corporation, the discovery and drill out of the Thunderbox gold mine and Waterloo nickel mine in Australia for LionOre Mining, and most notably, the Nova-Bollinger nickel-copper mine in Australia for Sirius Resources. He has been involved in raising over $1 billion in debt and equity financing for funding exploration and development projects and overseen mergers, demergers, acquisitions, investments and divestments. Dr. Bennett previously served as the founding CEO and Managing Director of Sirius Resources, a company that raised approximately $900 million in equity and debt financing to develop the Nova-Bollinger mine. During his tenure, Sirius was regarded as one of the best performing companies listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), and was acquired for a total of AUD$1.8 billion in 2015. At Sirius, he was directly responsible for the discovery of Nova and the subsequent drill out, feasibility, financing, permitting and construction of the mine. He is currently the Chairman of the Board of Directors for two ASX-listed companies, namely Falcon Metals Limited and S2 Resources Ltd and he is a former director of Todd River Resources Limited and IGO Limited. Dr. Bennett is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists and the Geological Society of London, and a Member of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and the Australian Institute of Company Directors. He is a two-time winner of the Australian Mining and Exploration Companies "Prospector Award" for his discoveries and was named "Legend in Mining" at the 2014 International Mining and Resources Conference in Melbourne.
