Toronto, Ontario, February 14, 2018 – GreenBank Capital Inc. (CSE: GBC and OTCMKTS: GRNBF and FRA; 2TL) (“GreenBank or the Company”) announces that it refutes the allegations made by the current directors of Minfocus Exploration Corp (TSXV: MFX) (“Minfocus”), in a press release dated February 14, 2018. Greenbank was advised by former Minfocus director Phil D’Mello that he resigned as a director on January 17, 2018………………. Minfocus failed to make the required press release announcing the resignation of Mr. D’Mello, which prevented disclosure to Minfocus shareholders that 60% of their directors had resigned during January 2018. GreenBank continues to hold the opinion that the Minfocus directors do not have the corporate authority to enter into the Letter of Intent on behalf of Minfocus to acquire a property from Kapuskasing Gold Corp (TSX-V: KAP) (“Kapuskasing”), and GreenBank will challenge these invalid corporate actions. GreenBank also notes that in a further press release made this morning, the Minfocus directors have announced a further share issuance to themselves in a purported debt settlement, as well as a significant amount of stock options to themselves. GreenBank is of the opinion that these actions are self-serving and not in the interests of Minfocus shareholders. GreenBank will make representations to the TSX Venture Exchange to prevent the issuance of shares to Kapuskasing, and prevent the issuance of shares for debt to the directors, until Minfocus shareholders have had an opportunity to elect new directors at a shareholders meeting. GreenBank is of the opinion that the proposed transaction with Kapuskasing and the issuance of shares to directors are designed to dilute the Minfocus major shareholders in an effort to perpetuate the employment of Kenneth de Graaf as CEO of Minfocus. GreenBank rejects the description made by Kenneth de Graaf of the sequence of events relating to discussions with GreenBank. Further GreenBank states that it has complied with, and will continue to comply with, all required regulatory disclosures.
