Perth, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Venus Metals Corporation Limited (ASX:VMC) is pleased to provide an update on its recent field exploration activities in the Mangaroon North project area that abuts Dreadnought Resources Ltd's (ASX:DRE) tenure (refer ASX release 19 July 2021) in the Gascoyne Region of Western Australia and is prospective for Ni-Cu-Pt-Pd, Au and rare earth mineralization.

- An initial soil geochemical survey totalling c. 1,500 samples was completed across E 09/2422, E 08/3229 and ELA 08/3375 (Figure 1*). Samples have been submitted for a multi-element suite with assays pending.

- In addition to the soil survey, 58 rock chip samples were collected from gossanous outcrops, pegmatites and quartz veins (Figures 2-4*), and these specimens are being analyzed for a multi-element suite including PGE, Au, REE and Li-Cs-Ta-Nb.

The tenements E 09/2422 and E 08/3229 cover a total of 295 km2 and abut Dreadnought Resources Ltd's (ASX:DRE) and First Quantum Minerals Ltd's (TSE:FM) ("FQM") Mangaroon Project targeting magmatic Ni-Cu-Pt-Pd mineralization associated with the mafic-ultramafic Money Intrusion (refer DRE ASX releases 15 March 2021 and 7 April 2021) and the Lumpy's Find Prospect. DRE recently identified gossanous outcrop over 1 km strike at Bookathanna Bore in the northern part of the Money Intrusion with significant rock chip results of up to 1.0% Cu, 0.6% Ni, 0.04% Co and 0.3g/t Pt-Pd-Au (refer DRE ASX release 16 July 2021). The outcrop is located approximately 3 km east of Venus' E 08/3229) (Figure 1*).

Within Venus' E 09/2422 and E 08/3229, several northwest trending Narimbunna igneous intrusives (dolerite and gabbro sills) and north-northeast trending Mundine Well dolerites, dykes, sills and small intrusions (possibly extending into ELA 08/3375) are considered highly prospective for magmatic Ni-Cu-Pt-Pd mineralization similar to that discovered in the Money Intrusion (Mundine dolerite) at Lumpy's Find and, more recently, at Bookathanna. E 09/2422 and E 08/3229 are also considered prospective for gold mineralization along strike of the historical high-grade Star of Mangaroon gold mine, at structural targets along several shear and fault zones that transect the tenements and along strike of historical gold workings.

Based on the results of its initial sampling programme, Venus will prioritize potential target areas for further work including detailed follow-up sampling, ground geophysical surveys and drilling.

Northern Dynasty Comments on Environmental Protection Agency's Statement on Future Actions Regarding Alaska's Pebble Project

Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd. (TSX:NDM)(NYSE American:NAK) ("Northern Dynasty" or the "Company") comments on the November 17, 2021 press release by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") in which the EPA extended the deadline to either withdraw the 2014 Proposed Determination or to prepare a Recommended Determination regarding the Pebble Project in Southwest Alaska

"While it is not yet known what action, if any, the EPA will finally take, we are cautiously optimistic about their commitment to consider new information that has become available since the 2014 Proposed Determination and to make science-based decisions," said Ron Thiessen, President and CEO of Northern Dynasty. "We do not know which new information they may use in their decision, but we believe that the strong administrative record of the overwhelmingly positive Final Environmental Impact Statement of 2020 that was prepared by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers should be an important part of it."
