Talon Metals Corp. (TSX: TLO) (OTC Pink: TLOFF) ("Talon" or the "Company"), the majority owner and operator of the Tamarack Nickel-Copper-Cobalt Project ("Tamarack Nickel Project") in central Minnesota, commends President Joe Biden and the U.S. Congress for passing bipartisan infrastructure legislation (H.R. 3684, Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act). President Biden signed the bipartisan legislation into law today. The legislation contains significant funding support for electric vehicle ("EV") adoption, EV battery charging infrastructure and over US $6 billion for developing battery materials processing capacity in the U.S., including nickel. In a separate but related development, the Biden Administration last week moved to add nickel to the U.S. Critical Minerals List as part of a comprehensive review of supply chain security in critical minerals.

Henri van Rooyen, CEO of Talon, said: "The bipartisan infrastructure bill is a major contribution to the competitive position of the United States in the transition to clean transportation. It invests significantly in transportation infrastructure, support for electric vehicle adoption and charging infrastructure in addition to over $6 billion for EV battery materials and critical mineral processing. This funding will help jump-start North America's developing battery supply chain from mine to recycling."

Van Rooyen continued: "Members from both parties backed funding for critical minerals processing, which will allow the U.S. to leap-frog legacy processing approaches and deploy modern, lower carbon technology at large scale to ensure security of domestic supply in essential battery materials like nickel. Talon is ready to work with potential technology partners and the U.S. government to build nickel processing capacity that will establish the U.S. as a global leader in battery manufacturing for both EVs and energy storage. Congress has recognized the potential of a critical mineral supply chain crisis at just the right time and acted to secure U.S. leadership in critical minerals. The Biden Administration has also prudently moved to add nickel to the U.S. Critical Minerals List, which will help to ensure that nickel mining and processing is a priority."

Talon's Head of Climate Strategy Todd Malan commented: "The bipartisan infrastructure bill not only supports U.S. leadership in EV battery materials, but it also provides significant funding for Direct Air Capture and carbon storage. Negative emissions technology like Direct Air Capture coupled with permanent storage like carbon mineralization is another strategic investment in the fight against climate change. Given its unique geology, Minnesota can be at the forefront of this new approach."

Talon and Carbon Capture Inc. recently entered into an agreement covering the testing of Carbon Capture's U.S.-developed, low-cost Direct Air Capture technology at the Tamarack Nickel Project in Aitkin County, Minnesota. Talon is conducting fundamental R&D on carbon reactive rocks in the Tamarack Intrusive Complex to convert carbon dioxide captured from the atmosphere to solid rock form for purposes of carbon storage. Talon believes that mine tailings from a future underground mine at the Tamarack Nickel Project used as backfill material will have the natural capability to convert carbon to solid form. Carbonated tailings could both help secure mine operations and store significant amounts of carbon in stone form. Talon expects to provide regular updates to regulators, community members and investors on carbon mineralization studies.
