 White Metal Resources Corp. (TSXV: WHM) ("White Metal" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has begun its first reverse circulation ("RC") drilling program at its 95% owned Taranis Copper-Silver Project (the "Project" or "Property"), located in northwestern Namibia and defined by Exclusive Prospecting Licence ("EPL") 7071. The Project includes the historical mineral resources of the Okohongo Copper-Silver Deposit (the "Okohongo").

Michael Stares, President & CEO of the Company, stated, "The aim of this drilling program is to generate an NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate and technical report on the Okohongo. Given the recent rise in copper prices and positive outlook for the metal's future, we are committed to continuing to advance the Project, which in addition to a copper-silver resource, shows excellent exploration potential. We are continuing to seek a partner for this Project, while we focus on the Company's flagship property, the Tower Stock Gold Project, located in northwestern Ontario."

The Company received its Environmental Clearance Certificate ("ECC") for EPL 7071 in January 2020 (see news release 7 January 2020) and has recently completed the re-logging of historical RC drill hole sample chips, and the re-sampling of historical diamond drill core, both stored in the government's warehouse. In addition to the RC drilling program (3 000 m planned), a reconnaissance geological mapping and sampling program is planned over the Property. The primary objective of the 2021 exploration program is to update the historical mineral resources in the Okohongo deposit and complete a mineral resource estimate and technical report compliant with National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101").

The Taranis Property, covering about 19 850 ha, includes the historical Okohongo Cu-Ag Deposit which has been outlined by historical drilling (see INV Metals news release dated August 3, 2011), showing it extends over 600 metres in strike length, 400 metres down-dip, and is interpreted to be open in all directions. The Okohongo, situated within the Kaoko Belt of northwest Namibia about 700 km northwest of Windhoek, is hosted by metasedimentary stratigraphy and is considered to be analogous with the stratiform sediment-hosted Central African Copperbelt deposits of Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This deposit contains historical Inferred Mineral Resources of 10.2 million tonnes grading 1.12% Cu and 17.75 g/t Ag, using a 0.3% Cu cut-off (Table 1; INV Metals Inc. NI 43-101 Technical Report, Effective Date March 31, 2011).

Best Copper Stocks on the TSX

Copper had a stellar first half of 2021, with prices rallying to their all-time highest level during Q2.

Unlike the first half of 2020, the trend in copper prices was upward for most of the first half of this year, with the red metal hitting an all-time high in May.

Heading into the home stretch of 2021, the market is still robust, and there is plenty of optimism that copper remains in bullish territory. Many analysts and companies expect a boom in the coming years as electrification and electric vehicles grow in popularity and subsequently increase the world’s appetite for the vital base metal.
