Novo Resources Corp. (" Novo " or the " Company ") (TSX: NVO & NVO.WT; OTCQX: NSRPF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to amend certain terms of its outstanding US$60 million credit facility (the " Facility ") with Sprott Resource Lending Corp. and Sprott Private Resources Lending II (Collector), LP (collectively, " Sprott ") ( please refer to the Company's news releases dated August 4, 2020 and September 8, 2020 ), and has drawn down an additional US$5 million.

Novo drew down the first US$35 million tranche of the Facility in September 2020. In order to retain financial flexibility as Novo advances its Beatons Creek conglomerate gold project (" Beatons Creek ") to full-scale commercial production, and in light of completion of the sale of a portion of Novo's Blue Spec tenure to Calidus Resources Limited (ASX: CAI) which included a significant equity component in lieu of cash ( refer to the Company's news release dated March 23, 2021 ), Novo has renegotiated the second tranche of the Facility to total US$15 million (subject to a lender's 2% cash discount), inclusive of the US$5 million mentioned above, available to be drawn until September 30, 2021, at Novo's discretion. The remaining US$10 million available under the renegotiated second tranche is subject to the satisfaction by Novo, or waiver by Sprott, of certain conditions set out in the credit agreement governing the Facility. In addition to the lender's cash discount, the Company is also required to pay to Clarus Securities Inc. and Stifel GMP a 4.5% cash fee on amounts drawn under the Facility.

About Novo Resources Corp.

Novo is commissioning its flagship Beatons Creek gold project while exploring and developing its highly prospective land package covering approximately 14,000 square kilometres in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. In addition to the Company's primary focus, Novo seeks to leverage its internal geological expertise to deliver value-accretive opportunities to its shareholders.
