"Our third annual Sustainability Report marks another substantial milestone in bringing us closer to fulfilling our purpose in becoming the world's most sustainable mining company" said Ricus Grimbeek, President and CEO. The unprecedented events of 2020 remind us how critical sustainability planning is for the people and communities that host us, not only during a crisis but in the years ahead. It also highlights the role our industry plays in protecting the planet. Sustainability is core to our business and is an integral part of our decision-making processes, driving us to contribute to a greener and safer global economy. Over the years, the excellent planning of our teams allowed us to achieve our sustainability goals in 2020, deliver on production guidance, reduce debt and bring a mine out of care and maintenance during the pandemic. We continue to adopt innovative practices, use new technologies, and achieve net-positive outcomes for society and the natural environment while delivering value for our shareholders despite the challenges of 2020."

Trevali believes that metals critical for the world's transition to a low carbon society must be mined responsibly. Zinc, lead, and silver are used in low-carbon technologies, which enable the transition to electric vehicles and renewable energy. The Company mines these metals in a socially and environmentally responsible way, to mitigate risks and protect the value of the business for our stakeholders over the long-term.

Trevali Mining Corporation ("Trevali" or the "Company") (TSX: TV) (BVL: TV) (OTCQX: TREVF) ( Frankfurt : 4TI) is pleased to announce that it has received credit approval from Standard Bank of Namibia Limited and The Standard Bank of South Africa Limited (together, "Standard Bank") for a Senior Secured Financing Facility of $110 million to fund the expansion of the Company's Rosh Pinah Mine ("Rosh Pinah" or the "Mine") in Namibia .

Trevali Mining Corporation Logo (CNW Group/Trevali Mining Corporation)

"Project financing for the Rosh Pinah expansion (" RP2.0 ") has been steadily progressing for the past several months, and we are pleased to report the confidence in the Rosh Pinah operation and expansion that is reflected by Standard Bank's credit approval and strong endorsement of the RP2.0 project," said Ricus Grimbeek, President and CEO of Trevali.

"The expansion at Rosh Pinah is the primary focus for Trevali in the coming years and we look forward to working with Standard Bank as a supportive lender that has intimate knowledge about the Rosh Pinah Mine, the expansion plan, and long-term operating success that has been achieved since mining began in 1969."

Credit approval follows the execution of a mandate agreement with Standard Bank in March of this year and completion of legal and technical due diligence of the Rosh Pinah Mine and the RP2.0 project, including a site visit to the operation.

Closing of the Senior Secured Financing Facility is subject to a number of conditions, including the negotiation and settlement of definitive loan facility and security documentation, the execution and delivery of definitive documentation in respect of the other elements of the comprehensive financing package, including an intercreditor agreement between Standard Bank and the various subordinated secured lenders, and the consent of and release of existing security by Trevali's existing senior secured lenders. While the Company is progressing these various workstreams, there is no certainty that the conditions set out in the Standard Bank credit approval will be satisfied in a timely manner or at all.

The Company is continuing to pursue the arrangement of an Export Credit Agency ("ECA") backed equipment finance facility, which may increase the amount available under the Senior Secured Financing Facility by up to $20 million .

As previously announced, negotiations for other components of the comprehensive funding package for RP2.0 and the refinancing of both the existing corporate revolving credit facility and Glencore loan facility, which mature in September 2022 , are ongoing, and the Company expects to provide a further update on these initiatives in due course.

The Company is being advised on the debt financing by Endeavour Financial. Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP is acting as legal counsel to the Company with support from the H.D. Bossau & Co. law firm in Namibia . Notwithstanding the above arrangement with Endeavour Financial and Standard Bank, the Company continues to consider all available financing options.
