(TSX-V: VERT) (“Vertical” or “the Company”) and Venturevest Realty Partners LLC (“Venturevest”) are pleased to announce that the two companies have signed a non- binding Letter of Intent (LOI) to enter into discussions regarding the provision by Venturevest of a secured Note Facility up to a maximum amount of $20 million CAD to support the multi-phased development of the St-Onge Wollastonite Deposit.
