Drilling Approvals For Picha Copper Project On Track Following Key DIA Approval

Peruvian Ministry of Energy and Mines approves the Environmental Impact Statement, allowing for up to 120 holes to be drilled across multiple targets

Valor Resources Limited (Valor or the Company) (ASX: VAL) is pleased to advise that it has taken another key step towards commencing its maiden drilling program at the Picha Copper Project in Peru following receipt of approval for its Declaración de Impacto Ambiental (DIA) (an Environmental Impact Statement for Exploration) from the Peruvian Ministry of Energy and Mines (MEM).


HIGHLIGHTS

  • Ministry issues the DIA – “Declaracion de Impacto Ambiental” (an Environmental Impact Statement for Exploration) for the Picha Copper Project in Peru, allowing for up to 120 holes to be drilled within the approved Effective Area, as illustrated in Figure 1 below.
  • Agreements with local landowners are already in place for 100% of the DIA Effective Area for a period of five years, allowing the Company to access and drill the Effective Area within the Project.
  • Valor’s maiden proposed drilling program, comprising 5,000m of diamond drilling, has been planned to initially test four key targets – Cobremani, Cumbre Coya, Maricate and Fundicion.
  • Final drill program planning, including logistics and drilling contractor selection, set to commence shortly.

Figure 1 – DIA approved area.

The DIA includes social stakeholder mapping as well as flora and fauna, anthropological and hydrological studies. All social agreements are already in place for a minimum of five years for 100% of the DIA approved Effective Area.

With DIA approval received, Valor will now apply for an “Autorización de Inicio de Actividades de Exploración” (Authorization to begin drilling), which is subject to a standard preliminary review by MEM on the possible presence of Indigenous communities within the exploration area.

A maiden diamond drilling program of around 5,000m is proposed to test four targets within the Effective Area – Cobremani, Cumbre Coya, Maricate and Fundicion. A short-list of drilling contractors has been determined and logistics planning is about to commence.

Valor Executive Chairman, George Bauk, said:“This is another exciting milestone for Valor in Peru with approval for the DIA marking another great achievement by our in-country team, reflecting the quality of the work that has been put in on the ground over the past 18 months. With social agreements already in place over the Effective Area, we can move ahead directly with an application for Authorization to Commence Drilling over 120 planned holes at the Central Picha Project.

“As mapped out in recent announcements, Valor has developed an incredible pipeline of large-scale, high- impact porphyry and epithermal targets across the Picha Project tenements. We can’t wait now to secure our final drilling permits, which will allow us to get on the ground and move ahead with our planned maiden 5,000mdrillprogram.Withupto120holesapproved,thestartofthisprogramwillsignalthebeginning of a transformational period for all of our key stakeholders.”

PICHA PROJECT

The Picha Project (100% owned by Valor) is a copper-silver exploration project, located in the Moquegua and Puno Departments of southern Peru. Picha is located approximately 17km ENE of Buenaventura’s (NYSE: BVN) San Gabriel Au-Cu-Ag Project, which hosts a reported Indicated and Inferred resource of 7.6 million ounces Au equivalent (132.7Mt @ 1.8 g/t AuEq).

Exploration work completed by the Company in 2021 comprising geochemical sampling, geological mapping and IP/Resistivity surveys has identified several exciting targets in the central part of the Project area. The Cobremani, Maricate, Cumbre Coya and Fundicion targets were identified as the highest priority targets.

The Company applied to the MEM for approval to drill within a portion of the Project area (the Effective Area) to test these priority targets.

The submission allows for up to 120 drillholes comprising 40 drilling platforms with up to three holes per platform. A maiden drilling program of around 5,000m is proposed, details of which are currently being finalised.

"Forward-looking information" includes, but is not limited to, statements with respect to mineral reserve and mineral resource estimates, the 2021 Arrow Deposit, Rook I Project and estimates of uranium production, grade and long-term average uranium prices, anticipated effects of completed drill results on the Rook I Project, planned work programs, completion of further site investigations and engineering work to support basic engineering of the project and expected outcomes. Generally, but not always, forward-looking information and statements can be identified by the use of words such as "plans", "expects", "is expected", "budget", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "anticipates", or "believes" or the negative connotation thereof or variations of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will be taken", "occur" or "be achieved" or the negative connotation thereof. Statements relating to "mineral resources" are deemed to be forward-looking information, as they involve the implied assessment that, based on certain estimates and assumptions, the mineral resources described can be profitably produced in the future.

Forward-looking information and statements are based on the then current expectations, beliefs, assumptions, estimates and forecasts about NexGen's business and the industry and markets in which it operates. Forward-looking information and statements are made based upon numerous assumptions, including among others, that the mineral reserve and resources estimates and the key assumptions and parameters on which such estimates are based are as set out in this news release and the technical report for the property , the results of planned exploration activities are as anticipated, the price and market supply of uranium, the cost of planned exploration activities, that financing will be available if and when needed and on reasonable terms, that third party contractors, equipment, supplies and governmental and other approvals required to conduct NexGen's planned exploration activities will be available on reasonable terms and in a timely manner and that general business and economic conditions will not change in a material adverse manner. Although the assumptions made by the Company in providing forward looking information or making forward looking statements are considered reasonable by management at the time, there can be no assurance that such assumptions will prove to be accurate in the future.

Forward-looking information and statements also involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties and other factors, which may cause actual results, performances and achievements of NexGen to differ materially from any projections of results, performances and achievements of NexGen expressed or implied by such forward-looking information or statements, including, among others, the existence of negative operating cash flow and dependence on third party financing, uncertainty of the availability of additional financing, the risk that pending assay results will not confirm previously announced preliminary results, conclusions of economic valuations, the risk that actual results of exploration activities will be different than anticipated, the cost of labour, equipment or materials will increase more than expected, that the future price of uranium will decline or otherwise not rise to an economic level, the appeal of alternate sources of energy to uranium-produced energy, that the Canadian dollar will strengthen against the U.S. dollar, that mineral resources and reserves are not as estimated, that actual costs or actual results of reclamation activities are greater than expected, that changes in project parameters and plans continue to be refined and may result in increased costs, of unexpected variations in mineral resources and reserves, grade or recovery rates or other risks generally associated with mining, unanticipated delays in obtaining governmental, regulatory or First Nations approvals, risks related to First Nations title and consultation, reliance upon key management and other personnel, deficiencies in the Company's title to its properties, uninsurable risks, failure to manage conflicts of interest, failure to obtain or maintain required permits and licences, risks related to changes in laws, regulations, policy and public perception, as well as those factors or other risks as more fully described in NexGen's Annual Information Form dated March 6, 2024 filed with the securities commissions of all of the provinces of Canada except Quebec and in NexGen's 40-F filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, which are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and Edgar at www.sec.gov .

There can be no assurance that forward-looking information and statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated, estimated or intended. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements or information. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or reissue forward-looking information as a result of new information or events except as required by applicable securities laws .
