On November 9, 2020, the Company announced its intention to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of PHC. The acquisition process was initiated on December 21, 2020 when the Company acquired the first 10% of the Company. It then completed its full due diligence and has now acquired the remaining 90%. TSX Venture Exchange has approved the transaction.

PHC is a Wyoming Corporation focused on helium exploration and development, primarily in the western US. PHC's initial target project is located in Kansas and currently comprises 69 leases covering 13,760 acres known as the Syracuse Helium Project . Further information on PHC and the Project was disclosed in the news release of November 9, 2020 and December 21, 2020 .

On Closing, the Company issued 7,000,000 shares of VVC to the shareholders of PHC in exchange for the 90% interest in PHC and placed the remaining 14 million VVC Shares in escrow, which will only be released from escrow in two tranches of 7 million shares each upon completion of two predetermined benchmarks. Any of the remaining VVC Shares not released from escrow within twelve (12) months will be returned to the treasury of VVC for cancellation. The shares are subject to a Hold Period expiring on May 27, 2021.

"PHC represents a valuable addition to the Company's resource portfolio as it looks to secure a position in the now booming helium market," said Jim Culver, CEO of VVC. "The Syracuse Helium Project presents a tremendous opportunity for the Company. We are very excited about this acquisition and its prospects for VVC shareholders".

Bill Kerrigan, CEO of PHC commented "we are pleased to be associated with VVC as the interests of both Companies are well aligned. This alignment creates synergies which bode well for the success of both VVC's copper portfolio and now helium".

What copper facts are important for investors? The metal’s relationship with human development is longstanding. From its use in plumbing in ancient Egyptian civilizations to being an essential component of power generation, copper has been an “electric” metal for millennia.

Northern Dynasty: Pebble Tailings Storage Facility Designed to Protect the Fishery

Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd. (TSX:NDM)(NYSE American:NAK) ("Northern Dynasty" or the "Company" or "NDM") and the Pebble Partnership ("PLP") highlight several design features that enhance the safety of the tailings storage facility ("TSF") for the Proposed Pebble Project to counter negative generalizations repeatedly put forward by project opponents. All currency references are in U.S. dollars

"The failure of a tailings storage facility around the world is rare. When one does occur, however, failure is often caused by the accumulation of too much water," said Ron Thiessen, President and CEO of Northern Dynasty. "The tailings storage and management plan for Pebble includes an investment of approximately $500 million in modern water treatment facilities to allow the water to be treated and safely released into the environment, meeting all required standards, instead of accumulated. Because of this and other design features, such as constructing the embankments on bedrock and with flatter slopes than is typical in the industry, the Army Corps of Engineers ("USACE") in the 2020 Environmental Impact Statement said that they could not conceive of how a failure could occur. The fact is that Alaska has a very rigorous dam permitting process which will ensure that the facility will be safe before it is built."
