ASHBURTON BACKS NEW BREAKTHROUGH ZEOLITE SOLUTION

ASHBURTON BACKS NEW BREAKTHROUGH ZEOLITE SOLUTION 150 150 Progressive Planet Inc.

March 15th, 2017, VANCOUVER, B.C. – ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (ABR-TSX:V) (ARB-FRANKFURT)  (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) is primed for entry into the creation of Vacuum Insulated Panels (“VIP”) for the construction industry. Ashburton, in partnership with ZMM Canada Minerals Corp. in the Z-1 Clinoptilolite Zeolite Quarry, is pleased to participate in this innovative clean energy, clean technology initiative. Under the program, the Ashburton’s Z-1 zeolite (see PR dated February 9, 2017) is the principal component in the manufacturing of VIPs. The first shipments of the Z-1 clinoptilolite zeolite have been ordered. A key role of the Z-1 zeolite is to enable lowering the cost of producing VIPs due to its unique, specialty properties.

“This is an exciting time for Ashburton. To have its unique Z-1 zeolite used in the creation of a leading edge clean energy, clean technology initiative in collaboration with the University of Victoria, the Province of B.C. and the Federal Government is truly a big step for our shareholders.” stated Company President David Gdanski.  

Demand for energy efficient buildings has increased drastically in recent years and this trend will continue in the future. Insulating building elements will play a key role in meeting this demand by reducing heat losses through the building envelope. Due to their high R-value, Vacuum Insulation Panels (VIPs) will be a more energy efficient alternative to conventional building insulation materials. The thermal insulating capacity of VIPs is five to ten times higher than traditional fibrous or foam insulation which is why efforts to develop VIPs with characteristics suitable for applications to new and existing buildings are underway.

The research and development program has begun and is being conducted by the University of Victoria under the supervision of Dr. Phalguni Mukhopadhyaya. Utilizing the natural clinoptilolite zeolite represents a unique opportunity to create new, high performance, thermal insulation that will provide significant benefits to the environment by reducing energy costs by up to 40%.

We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Energy and Mine’s Innovative Clean Energy (ICE) Fund of $50,000. $50,000 is being contributed by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) as a Collaborative Research and Development grant and $45,000 is being provided by Ashburton and ZMM to support this exciting new, breakthrough technology.

ASHBURTON ACQUIRES TRANSCANADA ZEOLITE AND JUNIPER CREEK ZEOLITE PROPERTIES

ASHBURTON ACQUIRES TRANSCANADA ZEOLITE AND JUNIPER CREEK ZEOLITE PROPERTIES 150 150 Progressive Planet Inc.

March 2nd, 2017, VANCOUVER, B.C. – ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (ABR-TSX:V) (ARB-FRANKFURT)  (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) announces it has signed an agreement to purchase 100% interest in two mineral properties; the TransCanada Chabazite Zeolite and the Juniper Creek Chabazite Zeolite properties. Both are being acquired from ZMM® Canada Minerals Corp. (“ZZM”), an arm’s length vendor, and are located south and east of Kamloops, BC within Eocene volcanic rocks.

Combined with the Z-1 zeolite quarry/mine, located about three kilometres northeast of Cache Creek, B.C., (see PR January 30, 2017), these two new strategic zeolite properties broaden Ashburton’s assets in the emerging zeolite markets. The strategy is to actively develop all three zeolite properties, one containing the zeolite mineral Clinoptilolite and two containing Chabazite zeolite. The Company has an experienced team in place to advance the projects. Doing so expands our markets exponentially from very high value, in the case of the high purity Chabazite, to lower value, large volume markets.

Chabazite is a unique rare and valuable mineral of the zeolite family. In North America, there is only one other location, in southern Arizona, where Chabazite is produced. The exceptional properties of Chabazite lead to applications in numerous clean technology solutions like reverse adsorption systems, thermal energy harvesting and solar energy storage.

It is envisioned that Chabazite from the Company’s two new properties will be targeted for three specific applications. The first being a high purity crystalline Chabazite, slated for high tech/clean tech applications in the areas of molecular sieves, gas separation and purifying gas streams. The second and third products will be used in horticulture, agriculture, animal health and specialty Supplementary Cementaceous Materials (SEMs). The Chabazite markets complement the Clinoptilolite markets in both processing and products.

Ashburton CEO Mike England comments "We are very fortunate to have come to terms to add these two specialty zeolite properties to our expanding industrial mineral portfolio, with numerous potential applications that will complement our activities at the Z-1 Quarry. The Company’s goal is to become the leader in zeolite innovation and applications.”

Terms of the option agreement call for Ashburton to spend $250,000 on these groups within the first year, issue to ZMM 1,000,000 common shares in the capital of ABR upon TSX approval and a cash payment to ZMM of $10,000.
