Novo Resources Corp. (" Novo " or the " Company ") (TSX: NVO & NVO.WT; OTCQX: NSRPF) reports that its annual general meeting (the " Meeting ") has been scheduled for June 22, 2021 at 4 pm PDT.

The Company is pleased to announce that its board of directors (the " Board ") has invited Ms. Amy Jo Stefonick of Denver, Colorado to stand for election to the Board at the Meeting. Ms. Stefonick has nearly 20 years of experience as a corporate and securities attorney across multiple industries where she advises public companies and their boards of directors on multi-jurisdictional corporate governance matters, U.S. securities laws and complex M&A transactions. Ms. Stefonick is currently engaged as senior legal talent for Axiom Global Inc., a global leader in high-caliber, on-demand legal talent, where she is serving as senior corporate and securities counsel for two Nasdaq-listed biotechnology firms, advising on complex corporate and securities matters. Previously, she served as assistant vice president and senior corporate counsel for Janus Henderson Group plc, a global asset management firm headquartered in London and dual-listed on the NYSE and ASX, and was corporate secretary and corporate counsel for Cloud Peak Energy Inc., a coal mining company listed on the NYSE with operations in Wyoming and Montana. Ms. Stefonick holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Jamestown College (now University of Jamestown) and received her law degree from the University of Denver College of Law.

The Board has been reviewing its structure and composition utilizing a Board skills matrix. As the Company has transitioned from a pure-play explorer to an explorer and a producer, the Board recognized a need to expand the experience of the Board to further encompass operational issues and expand coverage of environmental, sustainability and governance issues. Consequently, Mr. Ross Hamilton and Mr. Michael Spreadborough recently joined Novo's Board. Mr. Ross Hamilton joined the Board in December 2020 and brings a wealth of experience in sustainability, environmental stewardship, climate change, community engagement, indigenous affairs and stakeholder relations within the mining, metals and large infrastructure sectors. Mr. Michael Spreadborough joined the Board in January 2021 and brings 30 years' experience in mining lead, zinc, uranium, copper, gold and iron ore in Australia.

The Company also announces that Ms. Akiko Levinson and Mr. Yoshikazu Ishikawa (Cash) are not standing for re-election to the Board at the Meeting. The Company would like to thank both Ms. Levinson and Mr. Ishikawa for their invaluable contributions throughout their tenure with Novo.

"I have personally worked with Akiko since 2005," commented Dr. Quinton Hennigh, Chairman and President of the Company. "Throughout this time, and since joining Novo's Board in 2011, Akiko has been instrumental in guiding the Company to becoming a producer. I would like to personally thank Akiko for her many years of dedicated service and wish her all the best in her other endeavours."

"I have also worked with Cash for many years," added Dr. Hennigh. "Cash was a key factor in the establishment of the Novo/Sumitomo relationship and has been a long-time supporter of the Company. We wish Cash all the best as he continues his role as Managing Director and President of Sumitomo Australia Pty Ltd. Novo looks forward to continuing its strong relationship with Sumitomo Corporation."

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Global central bank gold reserves top 35,500 metric tons (MT), approximately one-fifth of all the gold ever mined. The vast majority of central bank gold holdings were acquired in the last decade, when national banks became net buyers of the yellow metal.

Central banks purchase gold for a number of reasons: to mitigate risk, to hedge against inflation and to promote economic stability. In its most recent annual survey released in June 2022, the World Gold Council (WGC) said that 61 percent of central bankers expect global gold reserves to increase over the next 12 months. Nearly three-quarters of respondents cited the precious metal’s “long-term store of value” as a guiding factor in gold purchases.

Central banks added 463 MT of gold to their vaults in 2021, signaling a significant turnaround in demand after the 255 MT decade low experienced in 2020.

Speaking just ahead of the central bank's meeting, Adrian Day, president of Adrian Day Asset Management, said usually the Fed starts out hawkish and then backs off. But this time around the opposite is happening.

This is due to various factors, but US President Joe Biden's recent meeting with Fed Chair Jerome Powell is among them — in their discussion, Biden expressed that inflation is the Fed's responsibility.
