Emerita Resources Corp. (TSX V: EMO; OTC: EMOTF) (the "Company" or "Emerita") announces that the permitting for the Romanera and El Cura deposit diamond drill program at its wholly owned Iberia Belt West Project ("IBW" or the "Project") has now completed the 15 day period required to complete the permitting process. There were no further submissions during that period and the process now will conclude with the issuing of the permit. The Company is immediately mobilizing four diamond drills to the Romanera deposit to accelerate the delineation program there. There are a total of eight drills on the Project and the other four will be split between the El Cura deposit and the Infanta deposit areas.

According to David Gower, P.Geo., CEO of Emerita, "The Romanera deposit is the cornerstone of the Iberia Belt West Project (IBW). Based on the historical work, it is more than 10X the size of any of the deposits known on the Project to date and has the potential to support a feasibility as a stand-alone operation in the future. The historical drill hole data base comprising 51 drill holes, and the historical resource estimate by the previous operator provide a high level of confidence in the upcoming drill program. Further, the deposit remains open along strike and down dip (Please see the Company's news release dated April 5, 2022 for further details). The deposit outcrops at surface so we expect to see a lot of drill intercepts quickly as the initial phase of the program will comprise relatively shallow drill holes."

According to Joaquin Merino, P. Geo, President of Emerita, "Our team is very excited to see the commencement of this most important phase of the Project. Of particular note, the deposit is open at depth below 350 meters. It also remains open along strike. Historical drilling by Rio Tinto and Asturiana de Zinc has delineated mineralization over approximately 450 meters of strike, however Emerita's electromagnetic (EM) survey maps the conductor associated with this deposit for 1.2 kilometers of strike (see Figure 1). There is excellent potential to achieve a significant expansion of the deposit to the east and at depth."

Note the surface projection of the Romanera deposit in red. The deposit has only been drilled along 450 meters of the 1,200 meter long TDEM conductor that is associated with the mineralization at the Romanera Deposit.

Infanta Area Drilling

The Company has received assay results for 10 additional drill holes on the Infanta Deposit, see Table 1 below for complete results. Highlights are as follows.

  1. Hole IN035 returned 5.5 m grading 1.2% Cu, 3.3% Pb, 5.9% Zn 0.41 g/t Au and 93.9 g/t Ag.  It is located in the South Block of the Infanta Deposit. The South Block extends 100 to 125m vertically by 600 m along strike and remains open toward the west. It further confirms high grades in that area of the deposit and will provide material for future metallurgical work.
  2. All the holes in the North block of the Infanta deposit have intersected sulphide mineralization. The North Block extends from 50m depth to more than 300 meters vertical depth, and has a strike length of 1100m and remains open toward the west. The thickness varies between 0.8m and 3.0m.
  3. Hole IN041 located at about 300m below the surface and in the western most section intersected 3.0m grading 0.7% Cu, 2.7% Pb, 5.6% Zn, 28.3 g/t Ag. On the eastern edge, Hole IN038 at 125m below surface intersected 1.5M grading 1.2% Cu, 4.5% Pb, 7.1% Zn, 0.44 g/t Au, 145.3 g/t Ag.
  4. In the center of the North Block at 250 m below surface, IN040 intersected 1.5m grading 0.1% Cu, 6.4% Pb, 9.4% Zn, 25.0 g/t Ag. Closer to surface, hole IN043 intersected 1.4m grading 2.6% Cu, 11.7% Pb, 21.6% Zn, 0.16 g/t Au, 304.4 g/t Ag.

The massive sulphide horizon in the North Block at the Infanta deposit is very extensive and the mineralization continues at depth and to the west. To the west, sulphide mineralization has also been discovered at surface that may represent a potential extension for an additional 1.0 Km. Drilling is very widely spaced with more than 250 meters between some drill sections. Although there is good grade mineralization in many of the intercepts, they are narrower than in the South Block. The Company is reviewing geophysical techniques and contemplating more detailed surveying over the North Block mineralized horizon to identify areas where the massive sulfide horizon may thicken at depth or along strike. The priority will shift to the Romanera and El Cura deposits while this work is being completed. Work to date has been successful in significantly expanding Infanta beyond the historical limits and a resource estimate is expected to be calculated along with the other deposits later this year.

Drilling comprises very wide spaced step outs on the west side and to the east. The Company is reviewing geophysical techniques to identify areas of thicker mineralization along strike in the gaps or at depth in order to make the program more efficient.

The U.S. Department of Justice and Hudbay Receive Rosemont 9th Circuit Court Ruling; Hudbay Continues to Advance Copper World

Hudbay Minerals Inc. ("Hudbay" or the "company") ( TSX, NYSE: HBM) and the U.S. Department of Justice today received a split decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (the "Decision"), which affirmed the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona's ("District Court") decision in July 2019 relating to the Rosemont copper project in Arizona. In the Decision, the Court of Appeals agreed with the District Court's ruling that the U.S. Forest Service relied on incorrect assumptions regarding its legal authority and the validity of Rosemont's unpatented mining claims in the issuance of Rosemont's Final Environmental Impact Statement. While Hudbay reviews the Decision, in any event, the company will continue to pursue its alternative plan to advance its Copper World project.

Since 2019, Hudbay has successfully discovered the Copper World deposits located on patented mining claims adjacent to Rosemont. The company has also acquired a private land package totaling approximately 4,500 acres to support an operation on private lands. The initial technical studies for Copper World have been completed and the results are being incorporated into a Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") contemplating the development of the Copper World deposits in conjunction with an alternative plan for the Rosemont deposit. The PEA is expected to incorporate a two-phase mine plan with the first phase reflecting a standalone operation utilizing Hudbay's private land for processing infrastructure and contemplating mining portions of Copper World and Rosemont located on patented mining claims. The first phase is expected to require only state and local permits and is expected to reflect an approximate 15-year mine life. The second phase of the mine plan is expected to extend the mine life and incorporate an expansion onto federal lands to mine the entire Rosemont and Copper World deposits. The second phase of the mine plan would be subject to the federal permitting process and the company expects it will be able to pursue the federal permits within the constraints imposed by the Decision, if any subsequent appeals are not successful. Hudbay expects the PEA to demonstrate positive economics for this low-cost, long-life copper project and the company is on track to publish the results in a NI 43-101 Technical Report in the second quarter of 2022.

5 Major Copper Uses

5 Major Copper Uses

Copper products are widely used in building construction, electrical grids, electronic products, transportation equipment and home appliances.

A member of the holy trinity of metals along with gold and silver, copper has a long history as a critical material for the advancement of human civilization, dating back at least 8,000 years. The only base metal in the triad, copper’s numerous useful properties make it the third most-used industrial metal in the world.

The abundance of copper uses makes the metal a valuable indicator for global economic health, and for that reason the red metal has even earned itself the moniker “Dr. Copper.”
