November 2, 2021

Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - November 2, 2021) - Athabasca Minerals Inc. (TSXV: AMI) - ("AMI" or the "Corporation") - is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, AMI RockChain Inc ("RockChainTM"), has recently completed a $400k crushing services & quality management contract as part of its 3-year running agreement with the Rural Municipalities of Alberta ("RMA" www.rmalberta.com) and its division the Canoe Procurement Group of Canada (www.canoeprocurement.ca). This latest services scope leveraged RockChain's engineering division, i.e. TerraShift Engineering, in managing a 24-hour operation in October to meet the Q4-2021 aggregates volume requirements for one of RMA's municipal members.

Paul Leveille, Vice-President of TerraShift Engineering and Chief Technology Officer of RockChainTM states, "TerraShift Engineering works hand-in-glove with RockChainTM to meet its customer's needs. Aside from RockChain's inherent purchasing power advantages there's the added value of project and technical services accessible on demand. We are pleased with the results of successfully running a safe, round-the-clock crushing program providing quality monitoring for our municipal client. RockChain and TerraShift look forward to serving more municipal customers across Canada under our contractual relationship with the Canoe Procurement Group of Canada."
