Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – March 8, 2022) – Britannia Life Sciences Inc. (CSE: BLAB) (FSE: L020) (“Britannia”) is pleased to announce the formation of a new subsidiary to service the global mining industry. Britannia Mining Solutions Inc.

In establishing the business, BMS completed a non-brokered private placement for proceeds of $500,000 on March 7, 2022.
BMS is grateful for the distinguished group of investment and mining professionals who participated in the financing and welcomes Eric Sprott as a shareholder, as well as Dr. Quinton Henningh, Director of Crescat Capital, as an advisor to and strategic shareholder in BMS.

BMS will focus on establishing assay labs that employ a variety of technologically advanced solutions which will provide faster and more accurate results. These increased efficiencies will provide superior and more timely insights to geologists and mining executives, to better inform their ongoing drill programs and mine development plans.
Peter Shippen, CEO of Britannia, stated “Our strategy has been to disrupt the traditional analytical testing and laboratory markets across various industries through the deployment of innovative, cost and time saving technologies. Our objective in establishing BMS is to bring this strategy to the mining industry by displacing legacy processes with technologically advanced solutions.”
