Aben Resources Receives 5 Year Area-Based Exploration Permit for the Slocan Graphite Property in Southeastern BC

Aben Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ABN ) (OTC QB : ABNAF ) (Frankfurt: E2L2 ) ("Aben" or "the Company") announces that the British Columbia Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation has issued the Company a Multi-Year Area-Based mineral exploration permit which will allow Aben to conduct mineral exploration on the Slocan Graphite Property. The permit will be in force for five (5) years with a provisional expiry date of November 15, 2027. The permit provides Aben with the ability to conduct surface trenching and exploration drilling.

Jim Pettit, President of Aben Resources, stated "Receiving our 5 year exploration permit for the Slocan Graphite property is a very positive step for Aben. Following on our first comprehensive field exploration of the Property this past summer we can now focus on drill-testing the previously undrilled Tedesco Conductor. We look forward to developing the significant potential for economic graphite mineralization on the Slocan property while we forge a mutually-beneficial, respectful and positive relationship with the local First Nations".

The primary exploration target at the Slocan property is known as "The Tedesco Conductor" which is a strong conductive anomaly identified by a 2010 airborne electromagnetic geophysical survey and is coincident with widespread graphite-bearing surface rock samples that range from trace to 4.43% graphitic flake Carbon.

About Slocan Graphite Project :

The Slocan Graphite Project benefits from excellent infrastructure including forestry road access to and throughout the property, a high-voltage transmission line within 1.0 km of the property boundary and an existing graphite processing facility within 1.5 km of the property. The facility is owned by Eagle Graphite Corporation and is one of only two natural flake graphite production facilities in North America and is currently on care and maintenance.

Aben holds the exclusive right to earn from Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. a 100% interest, less a 2% Net Production Royalty ("NPR") in the road-accessible Slocan Graphite Project, located 34km northwest of Castlegar, British Columbia. The 2,826 hectare Slocan Graphite Property hosts several flake graphite-bearing outcrops (high values of 3.36 and 4.43 % graphitic Carbon) at the Tedesco Zone, which is coincident with a strong conductive anomaly identified in 2010 that is interpreted to extend up to 2.0km from the known surficial occurrences. The Lac des Iles mine is the only mine in Canada that is producing graphite. In 2020, global graphite mine production was about 954,000 tonnes, a 14% decrease from 2019. Canada ranks as the 10th global producer with 12,000 tonnes of production in 2020 of which 85% of natural graphite was exported to the US.

About Graphite:

Natural flake graphite is the fastest-growing product type and will continue to lead with a healthy growth rate of 9.5% in terms of value between 2021 and 2025.

In value and volume, batteries to exhibit the fastest-growth of 17.9% between 2021 and 2025. An average HEV contains up to 10 kgs of graphite, where in EVs it is up to 70 kgs.

Currently, synthetic graphite is the preferred material for battery anode materials. However, in the past few years, a significant shift towards natural flake graphite has been observed due to its cost-competitiveness and performance.

Graphite is the most preferred battery anode material for rechargeable batteries and the battery segment is anticipated to create an incremental opportunity worth US$4.6 Bn between 2020 and 2025.

In 2019, Asia Pacific was the largest consumer of graphite and is expected to grow 9.1% in terms of value between 2021 and 2025.

China's graphite production is anticipated to consolidate owing to environmental issues. New companies are entering into the graphite space, especially in the processing of natural flake graphite. Graphite is considered as a material of green energy and technology.

Aben Reports Final Drill Results from 2019 Exploration Program and Completes Earn-in for the Forrest Kerr Gold Project in BC’s Golden Triangle

Aben Resources Ltd. (TSXV:ABN, OTCQB:ABNAF, Frankfurt:E2L2) (“Aben” or “the Company”) has received and interpreted analytical results from the final seven drill holes (FK19-64 to 70) of the 2019 drill exploration program conducted at the Forrest Kerr Gold Project in the Golden Triangle region of British Columbia. Five of these drill holes were collared in the far south of the Boundary Valley with two holes completed at the Forrest prospect, located 14 km SSW from Boundary. The second and final phase of drilling in 2019 tested for precious and base-metal mineralization associated with structures and along geologic contacts located outboard from known mineralization toward the margins of the large hydrothermal system present on this part of the Forrest Kerr Property.
