Cogonov Inc. and Tejas Gold Announce the Execution of an Option Agreement on Farmington and North Londonderry Epithermal Gold Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO and AUSTIN, TEXAS (January 26, 2015) – Cogonov Inc. ("Cogonov") announces it has entered into an option agreement (the "Option Agreement") with Tejas Gold Company ("Tejas Gold") for Tejas Gold to secure the right to earn a 51% interest in the Farmington and North Londonderry Epithermal Gold exploration project in central Nova Scotia, Canada (the "Project") by making certain expenditures and work commitments. The Option Agreement contemplates Tejas Gold having a Right of First Refusal ("ROFR") over the remaining 49% interest in the Project.

Cogonov staked the Project’s claims in central Nova Scotia as part of their regional exploration program. The Project is located in the “Avalon Zone” of Nova Scotia, a belt of rocks known to host numerous gold deposits from southern Newfoundland to the prolific gold producing district of the Carolina Slate Belt in the southern USA. The recent discovery of Rare Earth Elements and Gold in the Avalon Terrane in Nova Scotia has sparked new interest in the area. At Warwick Mountain, epithermal-style Au mineralization has been found along with anomalous trace elements generally associated with gold mineralization. East of Warwick Mountain, visible gold has been documented in many of the streams. At Burnt Lake, Rare Earth Elements have been located in small veins within the Byers Brook Formation. Epithermal style alteration has also been identified by government geologists.

Proposed Terms and Conditions

Tejas Gold has the right to earn a 40% interest in the Project from Cogonov by issuing common shares of Tejas Gold to Cogonov and by making certain exploration expenditures.  Tejas Gold has a right to earn a further 11% in the Project by spending additional exploration expenditures and Tejas Gold has a right of first refusal over the remaining 49% of the Project.  Tejas Gold is the overall operator of the Project.

“The Management Team at Cogonov is very excited and pleased to announce our new Joint Venture Partnership with the Tejas Gold Company. We are determined to advance this project and apply our IP and Technical prowess. Our team has high expectations for this Project at Farmington & North Londonderry” said PJ Cruickshank, CEO – Cogonov 

“Tejas Gold Co is proud to partner with Cogonov to further develop the Farmington and North Londonderry Project.  We look forward to creating value for both companies from this joint venture” said Tom Comfort, CEO Tejas Gold Company.

July 15, 2014 Cogonov Awarded a Mineral Incentive Grant from the Government of Nova Scotia
TORONTO, ONTARIO (July 15, 2014) Cogonov Inc. (“Cogonov” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that is has been awarded a Mineral Incentive Grant from the Nova Scotia Provincial Government under its Nova Scotia Mineral Incentive Program (NSMIP)for its proposed exploration program on its Farmington claim group. Located due north of the Bass River project, the 515 Farmington claims cover 6 gravity anomalies previously delineated by Minotaur Exploration Ltd. Australia.Historic exploration in the area has been limited, confined mostly to the immediate area of Arsenic Brook where a gold bearing quartz vein was found by prospectors in 1906. Recently, the host rocks have been recognized elsewhere in the Cobequids as having the potential to host epithermal style mineralization including both copper and gold. Rare earth elements (REE’s) have also been locally noted..

A reconnaissance program is scheduled to commence in July and will include an airborne VTEM survey identical to that which successfully delineated key targets on the Bass River claim block. The airborne survey will be followed by a ground based program consisting of prospecting, mapping and geochemical sampling.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
June 3, 2014 COGONOV INC. AND CARDINAL CAPITAL PARTNERS INC. EXECUTE DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT FOR REVERSE TAKEOVER
On May 30, 2014, Cardinal Capital Partners Inc. executed a definitive agreement for a business combination with Cogonov Inc., a private Ontario corporation. The transaction is expected to take the form of an amalgamation, arrangement, share purchase or similar form of business combination. The company plans to apply to be a Tier 1 mining issuer on the TSX Venture Exchange.

Cogonov is a private resource company focused on the exploration and development of ironoxidecoppergold deposits in central Nova Scotia, Canada. Formed for this specific purpose, Cogonov initially acquired 2,651 claims along the CobequidChedabucto fault zone, which covered exploration targets previously delineated by Minotaur Exploration Ltd. Australia. These targets were the result of years of fieldwork, including the largest groundbased gravity survey conducted in Eastern Canada. Abandoned in 2010 due to financial constraints, Cogonov recognized an opportunity in the claims and immediately acquired the critical claims by staking. Additional ground was acquired by option agreements and staking..

Cardinal Capital has scheduled a special meeting of the shareholders for Aug. 14, 2014, to approve the transaction.

The summer 2014 exploration program on the Bass River IOCG exploration project will follow up on airborne VTEM (Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic) anomalies first identified and delineated by Cogonov Inc. in 2012. Subsequent modeling of the geophysical data, performed by Minotaur Exploration Limited (Australia), has prioritized 5 distinct target areas. Recommendations now include soil and outcrop sampling and drill testing. Detailed mapping and prospecting in areas of the defined VTEM anomalies will be completed first. This will be complimented by soil geochemistry and ground geophysics (Pulse EM.). Upon receipt of the ground geophysical data, Minotaur will conduct additional processing, including three dimensional and inversion modeling, to select locations for drill collars.

Ground exploration will be conducted on gravity anomalies found along the Cobequid Chedabucto Fault Zone that were initially delineated by Minotaur. These targets are located along the Bass River magnetic linear, and consist of magnetite-sulphide-breccia bodies which locally contain copper mineralization. These are high priority targets for magnetite breccia style mineralization.

The Company expects to begin exploration in the next few weeks. Ground geophysics for drill target definition will follow receipt of geological and geochemical data.

The program is being managed by Cogonov Inc. with oversight provided by their Technical Advisory Committee comprised of Dr. Tony Belperio (Minotaur Exploration Limited (Australia)), Dr. Murray Hitzman (Colorado School of Mines) and Dr. Clifford Stanley (Acadia University).
