Thunder Bay, ON, Canada (ABN Newswire) - White Metal Resources Corp. (CVE: WHM) (FRA:CGK1) (OTCMKTS:TNMLF) is pleased to provide an update regarding its recently initiated exploration program in the region north of the Okohongo Cu-Ag Deposit.

The Company is currently undertaking prospecting, geological mapping, grab sampling, and surface trenching and sampling programs along the prospective +7 km sedimentary-hosted copper horizon, which extends northward from the Okohongo Cu-Ag Deposit. This prospective horizon, colloquially known as the "Okohongo Horizon" occurs within the Lower Omao Formation (limestone, siltstone, dolomite), which is stratigraphically above the Nosib Group (sandstone, shale, conglomerate).

Michael Stares, President & CEO of the Company, stated, "These very high copper concentrations and strong silver assays confirm the significance of the Epunguwe area. This target area, being more than 5 direct kilometres north of the Okohongo Cu-Ag Deposit gives me further confidence in the prospectivity of this region of the Property. White Metal remains focussed on progressing the Tower Stock Gold Property in Ontario, Canada, but we will certainly continue to advance the Okohongo Copper-Silver Property as one of our primary assets."

A total of 56 rock grab samples were collected from the Epunguwe Target Area and Okohongo North Showing during recent geological mapping. The Epunguwe Target Area ("Epunguwe") is located about 4.3 km north of the Okohongo Cu-Ag Deposit and covers a minimum northwest strike length of 800 metres. The Okohongo North Showing is located about 2.7 km north of the Okohongo Cu-Ag Deposit. Assay results for the first 20 rock grab samples are summarized in Table 1*.

The Company also completed 10 east-west and northeast-trending trenches (EPT001 to EPT010) targeting the contact horizon between the Lower Omao Formation (east) and Nosib Group (west) and exposing sediment-hosted copper mineralization. A total of 28 rock grab samples from the trenching program have been submitted for analysis.

Historical reporting describes the Epunguwe Target Area as a northwest trending, roughly three kilometre by half kilometre area of soil geochemical anomalies, as well as copper mineralization exposed at surface, in trenches, and in drill holes (Table 2*), occurring along a significant syn-sedimentary, basinal growth fault.

Mineralization is described as structurally-controlled and hosted by conglomerates (sandstones) of the basal Nosib Group at or near the contact with overlying Ombombo Subgroup rocks; Lower Omao Formation siltstone and Lower Omao Formation dolostone also host mineralization (INV Metals Inc. Report, March 21, 2012, filed on SEDAR). To the Company's knowledge, no work has been completed in this area since 2012.

A more detailed description of the new areas of copper exploration can be viewed on the Company's website (https://www.whitemetalres.com/taranis-okohongo-cu-ag.html).

A qualified person has not done sufficient enough work to verify the historical assay results and technical information reported herein. Rock grab samples are selective samples by nature and as such are not necessarily representative of mineralization hosted across the Property.

Qualified Person

Technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Dr. Scott Jobin-Bevans (P.Geo.), Vice President Exploration and a Director of White Metal, who is a Qualified Person under the definitions established by the NI 43-101.

Cyprium Metals Ltd Nifty Copper Project Restart Update

Perth, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Cyprium Metals Limited (ASX:CYM) provides an update on the status of the refurbishment of the Nifty Copper Project whilst the Company is progressing the finance process for the restart of the operation.

HIGHLIGHTS

- Cyprium has now increased the mineral resource endowment at Nifty Copper Project by over 40% and the west and east of the mineralisation remains open

- The updated mineral resource estimates will be included in Phase 1 of the Nifty Restart Project optimisation, which will add further copper tonnes, mine life and cashflow

- Environment and Regulatory Approvals process nearing completion whilst most of the operational readiness and environmental clean-up activities now completed

- Advanced discussions are continuing with debt financiers, who are undertaking due diligence activities and reviewing financing documentation

Managing Director Barry Cahill commented:

"The Nifty Copper Project is in a state of readiness so that at the completion of the finance process, there is an effective and efficient transition from care and maintenance to full construction and then commissioning to production.

The Nifty Copper Project restart is the first phase of a potential +20-year life and remains robust, with current Australian dollar copper pricing at a similar level to what was used in the Restart Study, which was completed in March 2022. The increase in resources and the reduction in base costs, such as freight, since the study was finalised will only improve that robustness.

We look forward to commencing construction post finance, then producing and shipping copper metal, not ore or concentrate, but LME Grade A copper metal cathode, in the north of Western Australia."

Current Status

The Nifty site has been secured and there are sufficient personnel on site to maintain the site to enable a quick transition to construction activities once finance is obtained. The personnel will ensure maintenance of statutory regulations and reporting requirements, and operational, mechanical and electrical integrity of the infrastructure, and continue to advance refurbishment activities with existing materials that are already on site.

Scrap retrieval activities are continuing, and the site team are sending equipment that is surplus to project requirements (such as underground equipment) back to Perth for sale and disposal. Sale of surplus and salvage equipment has already commenced.

Corporate and head office costs have been minimised by reducing staff and executive positions and the remainder are on a part time basis, who are focused on regulatory and reporting requirements, and advancing the Nifty restart finance process.

Nifty Copper Project Status

The acquisition transaction for the Paterson Copper Assets, including Nifty Copper Project (on care and maintenance), was completed at the end of March 2021.

Upon transaction completion, personnel and drill rigs were immediately mobilised to site to commence work for the compilation of the Nifty Restart Study (completed and released to the market on 11 March 2022) and to conduct environmental surveys to commence the approval process (the first approval was lodged 14 November 2021) for the restart of the Nifty copper project.

The progress made by Nifty employees to date has been exceptional, with significant progress towards being operationally ready. The workforce again is commended for their efforts and progress whilst the site has remaining on care and maintenance since its acquisition. This has also been achieved at Nifty over the past ~450 days (over 300,000 hours worked) without a Lost Time Injury.

Mineral Resource Estimate

The Nifty Copper Project at the time of acquisition had a reported mineral resource estimate of 658.5 kt of contained copper metal in resource (refer to CYM ASX release dated 10 February 2021, "Transformational Acquisition of Highly Attractive Copper Portfolio").

Cyprium hasreviewed the Nifty mineral resource estimate, completed the inclusion of previous drilling and combined the resources databases for the purposes of the open pit design. The review included the estimate of a single model with geo-metallurgical domains. The resultant mineral resource estimate was released on 17 November 2021, totalling 732.2 kt of contained copper in resource.

Cyprium completed drilling of over 18,000 metres of reverse circulation ("RC") into the west of the Nifty deposit. This resulted in a second review which returned a mineral resource estimate which was released on 16 May 2022 of 940.2 kt contained copper in resource, 84% of which classified in the measured and indicted category. The west area of mineralisation has still not been closed out with areas of the mineralised formations still having gaps which require drilling including a portion of inferred mineral resource.

Successful drilling of over 5,000 metres of RC drilling into the eastern portion of the mineralisation has been completed and is yet to be included in the latest mineral resource estimate. Currently this information is being compiled for inclusion in the resource. The eastern area is still open for further drilling.

Cyprium has now increased the mineral resource endowment at Nifty Copper Project by over 40% and the west and east of the orebody is not closed off.

Future work requires extensional drilling to both the west and the east, and an update to the mineral resource estimate which is expected to increase further.

As can be seen in Figure 1 below, the Nifty Copper Project is currently recognised as the 6th ranked development project1 in Australia by copper metal and the highest grade of the top 6 group. Due to JORC 2012 reporting restrictions that prevent the existing leach pads at Nifty from being included in the reported mineral resource estimates, a further estimated 17.16 Mt @ 0.53%Cu (~91Kt tonnes of copper metal) is contained within the existing heap leach pads for retreatment at Nifty (refer to CYM ASX release dated 11 March 2022, "Nifty Copper Project Restart Study").

The Cyprium Metals portfolio includes 4 of the 26 largest Australian primary copper resources, being the Nifty, Maroochydore, Nanadie Well and Hollandaire deposits (refer to OZ Minerals Limited (ASX:OZL), 26 August 2022, "Strategy, Aspirations & Province Potential Presentation"). Cyprium's total combined JORC 2012 mineral resource estimate has increased from nil at the end of 2019 to over 1.6mt of contained copper that is currently reported.
