White Metal Resources Corp. (TSXV: WHM) (FSE: CGK1) (OTC Pink: TNMLF) ("White Metal" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update regarding its recently initiated exploration program in the region north of the Okohongo Cu-Ag Deposit (see Company news release dated 1 June 2021).

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.

7 Basic Copper Facts for Investors (Updated 2022)

7 Basic Copper Facts for Investors (Updated 2022)

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.

Considered a tertiary commodity compared to the shinier appeal of gold and silver, copper is often the third choice for metals-focused investors during economic uncertainty. Today, copper is the third most-used metal in the world and plays a pivotal role in all major economies and in the developing world.

Here are some basic copper facts for investors looking to get into the copper resource space.

Teck Reports Elkview Plant Outage

Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TECK.A and TECK.B, NYSE: TECK) ("Teck") announced today that there has been a structural failure of the plant feed conveyor belt at its Elkview steelmaking coal operation in the Elk Valley of British Columbia. Initial estimates are that production at Elkview Operations will be interrupted for 1-2 months as repairs are implemented. Elkview will reschedule planned plant maintenance to take advantage of plant downtime and mine operations will focus on pre-stripping during the outage. Assuming a two-month suspension of plant operations, Teck expects the impact on 2022 steelmaking coal production will be in the range of 1.5 million tonnes.

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."
