Osoyoos Indian Band Limited Partnership Signs Letter of Intent to Construct and Operate Record Ridge Mine

West High Yield (W.H.Y.) Resources Ltd. (TSXV: WHY) ("WHY Resources" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the signing of a Letter of Intent (the "LOI") with Skemxist Solutions ("SKM") (an Osoyoos Indian Band ("OIB") limited partnership with the Sutherland Group of Companies ("SGC")). The LOI contemplates the provision of road construction, site preparation, mining operations and various support services to the Company for its Record Ridge Industrial Mineral Mine ("RRIMM") near Rossland, British Columbia.

The RRIMM project contains critical minerals essential to the development of Canada's green economy and achievement of its climate change goals. It is projected to produce up to 200,000 tonnes of magnesium ore per annum over an initial two-year period.

"Governments talk a lot about the importance of critical minerals and reconciliation, but WHY Resources is walking the walk here", said OIB Chief Clarence Louie. "So British Columbia needs to move this ahead now - for the benefit of Canada, and for OIB's economic independence. "

The LOI builds on an earlier cooperation agreement signed between the Company and OIB, and follows the OIB's own independent review and continued oversight of the RRIM project, which is located is in the OIB's asserted traditional territory.

"From the outset, we have committed to doing the RRIM project right", said WHY Resources' President and CEO Frank Marasco. "This LOI, and the numerous commitments we have already made to address community input, shows we are serious about that".

Chris Sutherland, founder of Sutherland Group of Companies, stated: "We are excited to partner with West High Yield Resources and the Osoyoos Indian Band on this significant project, and we look forward to getting shovels in the ground."

The Company is in the latter stages of seeking its permits through the BC Mine Development Review Committee, and hopes to conclude negotiation of a definitive agreement with SKM in the weeks ahead.

Aclara Announces Strategic Alliance with VAC to Develop Permanent Magnet Supply Chain

Aclara Announces Strategic Alliance with VAC to Develop Permanent Magnet Supply Chain

Aclara Resources Inc. ("Aclara" or "Company") (TSX:ARA) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with VACUUMSCHMELZE GmbH & Co. KG ("VAC"), which establishes a non-binding, non-exclusive, preliminary agreement, to jointly approach potential clients as a "mine-to-magnets" solution for ESG compliant permanent magnets (the "Preliminary Agreement

Aclara and VAC believe that there is a significant market opportunity driven by the rising demand for electric vehicles ("EVs"), wind turbines, and other clean technologies that require rare earth permanent magnets produced pursuant to ever-increasing ESG standards. Such permanent magnets require significant quantities of both light and heavy rare earth minerals. Currently, obtaining these rare earth mineral materials whilst also having the capacity to process them, combined with the industrial technology needed to fabricate permanent magnets, is very limited and concentrated among a few Asia-based suppliers. This supply/demand dynamics results in a promising background to develop a new, resilient, ESG-focused supply for permanent magnets.
