Vancouver B.C., March 27, 2024, MineHub Technologies Inc. (TSXV: MHUB, OTCQB: MHUBF) (“MineHub” or the “Company”), a leading provider of digital supply chain solutions for the commodity markets, is pleased to announce it has signed a services agreement with a large Canadian bank (the “Bank”), to deploy MineHub’s Consignment Module to manage non-ferrous metals transactions for the Bank. As the first major bank customer for MineHub, the Bank’s adoption of the Consignment Module lays a solid foundation for future growth and new revenue streams with expansion into the finance sector. This milestone underscores the trust and confidence placed in MineHub’s innovative solutions, setting the stage for broader industry adoption in new addressable markets.

Andrea Aranguren, President & CEO of MineHub, commented, “We are thrilled to announce this agreement with a large Canadian bank, which marks a significant milestone in our journey towards driving innovation and transforming the way raw materials transactions are managed. Working with one of the largest banks in North America not only further validates our supply chain solutions but also expands our total addressable market. By leveraging our Consignment Module, we are excited to revolutionize the mining and finance industries, unlocking new opportunities for growth, efficiency, and sustainability.”

MineHub’s Consignment Module empowers the Bank to efficiently manage non-ferrous metals transactions with efficiency and transparency. From trade details and notifications to real-time shipment tracking and CO2 emissions reporting, the platform equips users with the tools needed to make informed decisions and drive operational excellence.

The Consignment Module provides an accurate, real-time view of consignment stocks, allowing both manufacturers and suppliers to improve inventory management. The administration of stocks in consignment is cumbersome, highly manual, and requires frequent interaction between suppliers, customers, and third parties like financiers to verify stock levels and reconcile accounts and balances.  The functionality of MineHub’s Consignment Module removes this pain for manufacturers, suppliers, and financiers, empowering businesses to optimize efficiency, enhance transparency, and drive value across the supply chain.

Offering the Consignment Module to banks and financiers unlocks new revenue streams for MineHub while delivering unparalleled value to its clients.  The deployment of the Consignment Module represents a bold step forward in MineHub’s commitment to innovation and sustainable business practices by delivering cutting-edge solutions that drive value for clients and stakeholders alike. As the mining and finance sectors embrace digital transformation, MineHub stands at the forefront of innovation and shaping the future of collaboration in this industry.

In addition, the Company announces the grant of 350,000 stock options to a senior officer of the Company, with each option exercisable at a price of $0.20 cents per share for a period of five years. The stock options will be subject to vesting requirements, as determined by the Board of Directors. The options have been granted in accordance with the terms of the Company’s current stock option plan and have a hold period of 4 months and a day from the date of issuance in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
