Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - November 28, 2023) - Infinico Metals Corp. (TSXV: INFM) ("Infinico" or the "Company") is pleased to make the following announcements, underscoring the Company's commitment to growth and advancement for our shareholders: Mr. Sam Walding has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Company as Mr. Tom Panoulias transitions to the role of Executive Chairman.

"We are pleased to appoint Sam Walding as Chief Executive Officer and Tom Panoulias as Executive Chairman of Infinico," stated Douwe Van Hees, Infinico's Director, speaking on behalf of the Board. "Both Sam and Tom have spearheaded the execution of the Company's updated corporate strategy, which includes a thorough assessment of our district-scale Québec nickel projects. Sam has a track record of operating successful exploration campaigns across North America and Europe, and is highly proficient in building and managing teams capable of delivering success. We are fortunate to be able to harness his skills, temperament and steady hand to steer the Company in a new direction to enhance shareholder value."

"I am delighted and honored to lead Infinico as we embark on our exploration programs in Quebec," stated Sam Walding, CEO of Infinico. "While current market conditions remain challenging for junior mining explorers, the recent successful capital raise has put the Company in a strong financial position to test the potential of our premier Quebec-focused nickel portfolio. I look forward to working with the dedicated team and Board of Directors at Infinico and contribute to its future success."

In the past he has played a leading role building and developing mineral exploration companies across different commodities and jurisdictions.

He holds a Master's degree in Applied and Environmental Geology from Leicester University, UK.
