May 23, 2018

Vancouver | May 23, 2018 | Imperial Metals Corporation (the “Company”) (TSX:III) reports that unionized employees at the Mount Polley Mine have gone on strike following a three hour lock out by the Company earlier today. The lock out was intended to overcome an impasse on renewal of the collective agreement which terminated on December 31, 2017.

Unionized employees were invited to return to work after the lock out under the terms of a new comprehensive and competitive wage and benefits package with USW Local 1-2017 dated May 9, 2018. Efforts to renew the collective agreement through mediation have so far been unproductive.
