Victory Resources Corporation (CSE:VR)(FWB:VR61)(OTC PINK:VRCFF) ("Victory" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has appointed Mr. Mark Ireton, President and CEO, with former President Mr. David Lane continuing to serve as Company director; concurrently, Mr. Glen Harder has resigned from the Company's Board of Directors

Victory has added multiple properties to its portfolio, most recently announcing the Smokey Lithium, Black Diablo and Loner properties, all of which are in Nevada. Work programs are set to begin, starting with the Loner 500m short hole drill exploration, and the Company is aggressively ramping up its exploration and acquisition efforts.

"On behalf of the Board, we are thrilled to welcome Mark to the Victory team, his experience, both in the mining and finance fields is exactly the match Victory requires to grow its exploration capabilities and very importantly to operate at the highest levels of efficiency and purpose," said Mr. David Lane, Director.

Mark Ireton's Experience Highlights:

  • President and CEO - Noram Ventures Inc.- 2015 to 2019
  • Director - United Lithium Corp., Medaro Mining Corp., Global Wellness Strategies - Current
  • Director - Soldera Mining Corp., Noram Ventures Inc., - Previous
  • Vice President Business Development, PNC Business Credit, - 2012 to 2015
  • Assistant Vice President, Canadian Western Bank, - 1991 to 2012

As President of Noram Ventures, Mr. Ireton oversaw the exploration and advancement of that company's primary asset, a clay lithium property with similar attributes to Victory's Smokey Lithium Project, and in the same vicinity. Mark understands the mining space, and the lithium space specifically having taken Noram's lithium property from early sampling to advancing it to where it was shown to have an inferred resource.

"Timing in the resource sector is everything and I am excited to join the Victory team, with a focus toward maximizing the value from a very promising portfolio of properties from gold to lithium," said Mr. Ireton. "Victory's exploration and work programs are progressing rapidly at a time when we see unprecedented demand for lithium and a continued appreciation in the value of metals across the board,"

Victory announces that it has issued a total of 3,400,000 options pursuant to its incentive stock option plan ("Plan") to management, employees and consultants. Each option entitles the holder to subscribe for one common share of the Company for $0.10 for a period of 5 years, subject to the terms of the Plan.

The Company also announced that it has engaged Stockwatch to provide investor awareness services for $10,500 annually.

About the Smokey Lithium Project:

The Smokey clay lithium project lies approximately 20 miles north of Clayton Valley, and 20 miles west of American Lithium's flagship lithium project. The property can be accessed just off a main highway and 2-track dirt road. Esmeralda County Nevada is a prolific region for lithium clay deposits, (Noram, Cypress, American Lithium, Spearmint, Enertopia, Jindalee).

About the Loner Property:

The Loner Property is located 35 km south of Winnemucca in the southern Sonoma Range and currently consists of 16 Federal Lode Claims covering historic workings and exposed low-sulphidation gold mineralization. Recent exploration in the area includes the Goldbanks Project, an epithermal gold project about 12 miles to the south, and the Coronado VMS Project, which has been exploring for Cu on a property about 6 miles to the southeast of the Loner Property. The area of the Loner Property is prospective for both these styles of mineralization. Victory Resources has optioned the Loner Property from Silver Range Resources (TSX-V: SNG) ("Silver Range") as announced on 23 December 2020.

Austral Resources Australia Ltd Complementary Exploration Earn-in Agreements with Glencore

Brisbane, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Copper producer Austral Resources Australia Ltd (ASX:AR1) is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into reciprocal non-binding exploration earn-in agreements ("Earn-in Agreements") with MIM, a subsidiary of one of the world's largest mining companies, Glencore.

The reciprocal nature of the Earn-in Agreements is value generating for both parties. For Austral, this will involve expanding its oxide exploration activity in both the Exploration Area and within MIM's prospective Russell Fault EPM. Under the Earn-in Agreements, the parties agree to share exploration data and certain resources.

Under the Earn-in Agreements, MIM will have the rights to earn-in up to a 65% interest of Austral's JV EPM's by spending A$6.3m over four years. Austral retains the right to explore for and commercially exploit oxide copper ore within the Exploration Area. Additionally, under the Earn-in Agreement with MIM, Austral is entitled to earn-in up to 65% interest within MIM's Russell Fault EPM by spending A$2.0m over four years, effectively increasing our copper exploration area by 116km2.

The Earn-in Agreements are non-binding and subject to formal documentation being entered into.

Austral will keep the market updated on its status as required.

Key details of the Earn-in Agreements are contained in the balance of this announcement. The Earn-in Agreements with MIM are the culmination of negotiations held with several parties eager to joint venture into portions of Austral's highly prospective exploration tenure and obtain an option to participate in the Company's future growth potential.

Austral's Chief Executive Officer, Steve Tambanis, commented:

"We are excited to collaborate with Glencore on this exploration JV in Queensland's Northwest Minerals Province. Both parties hold a significant tenure position within the region, and it makes absolute sense to combine the tenure for an intensive exploration programme. Glencore are our offtake partners for 40,000t of our Anthill copper cathode and we look forward to working together from an exploration perspective.

This is a win-win transaction for both Austral and Glencore with the potential to discover new orebodies that can extend operations of both companies in the region. Glencore is focussed on discovering new base/precious metal orebodies in this metal-rich area and Austral believes there is excellent potential to define additional oxide copper resources to be processed at its nearby Mt Kelly SXEW plant.

The prospectivity of the area has been significantly enhanced by two new geophysical datasets (Heli-VTEM and a separate fixed wing Falcon Gravity survey) flown by Glencore in late 2021 and processed earlier this year. This new data has generated a number of priority targets for the JV and drilling is expected to commence within months.

Of note, Austral has retained its rights to explore for oxide copper mineralisation on its own tenure and has negotiated the right to explore MIM's tenure for oxide copper mineralisation. We believe that the increased drilling activity in this area will yield more shallow copper oxide mineralisation.

Of Austral's 2,100km2 of EPM tenure, this Earn-in agreement applies to a 330km2 portion immediately about the Lady Loretta Mine (Figure 1*). Austral retains 1,800km2 of EPMs for other exploration initiatives.

Austral recently commenced processing ore from its Anthill Copper Mine - building to rate of 10,000tpa of copper cathode from mid-2022 for a four-year period. This will now allow the Company to increase the pace of its exploration and development activities.

We look forward to further updating shareholders as we build copper production from Anthill and scale-up exploration and development activities."

Cobalt Supply Growth to Come from These 5 Key Assets

According to a Cobalt Institute report, supply growth is likely to lag behind demand in the medium term, with the market expected to shift into a deficit by 2024.

“Rising prices over the last 12 months have incentivized further supply side investments but these are currently insufficient to meet the rate of demand growth,” the document states. “Mined supply will continue to see healthy increases year-on-year in 2022 and 2023 before starting to fall away from 2024 onwards.”

After falling in 2020, cobalt mine supply rose 12 percent year-on-year to reach 160,000 metric tons (MT) in 2021. The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) remained the top producer of the commodity, accounting for 74 percent of global output and 87 percent of annual growth.
