Precious Metals

Puma Exploration Inc. (TSXV: PUMA, OTC: PUXPF) (the " Company " or " Puma ") is pleased to announce the anticipated timing and additional details regarding a previously announced distribution of common shares of Canadian Copper Inc. (" Canadian Copper ") (formerly Melius Metals Corp.).

More particularly, in connection with a reduction of its stated capital in an amount of $1.5M, which is based on a deemed price of CAD$0.25 per common share of Canadian Copper and was approved by the shareholders of the Company at a special meeting held on March 9, 2022 (see News Release dated March 10, 2022), the Company will:

  1. distribute a substantial portion of the 6,000,000 common shares of Canadian Copper that were previously issued to the Company (the " Distribution ") to all of its shareholders other than its beneficial shareholders who are residents of the United States (the " U.S. Shareholders ") and who will be of record as of June 17, 2022 (the " Record Date "); and

  2. pay in cash, in U.S. dollars, the amount otherwise payable to the U.S. Shareholders who will be of record as of the Record Date in connection with such reduction of stated capital (the " Cash Payment ").

Based on the 107,587,244 common shares of Puma that are issued and outstanding as of the date hereof and on an assumption that 7,000,000 common shares of Puma will be held by U.S. Shareholders as of the Record Date, each shareholder of Puma which is not a U.S. Shareholder would be entitled to receive approximately 0.0521 common share of Canadian Copper for each common shares of Puma held as of the Record Date (which is equivalent to one (1) common share of Canadian Copper for each tranche of approximately 19.178 common shares of Puma)

The final exchange ratio related to the Distribution, and the exact amount of the Cash Payment that will be payable to US Shareholders, will both be determined as soon as possible after the Record Date.

The Distribution and Cash Payment are scheduled to occur on or about June 30, 2022.

For more information, please contact Marcel Robillard, President and CEO of Puma.

OPTION AGREEMENT UPDATE
All of the condition precedents under the option agreement with Canadian Copper (the " Option Agreement ") (see News Release dated July 6, 2021, November 11, 2021 and February 14, 2022) have now been satisfied. The transactions with Canadian Copper pursuant to the Option Agreement remains subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Puma has thus determined to proceed with a reduction of it stated capital for an amount of $1.5M and to set a record date of June 17, 2022 for the Distribution and the Cash Payment.

Following the Distribution, Canadian Copper expects to meet the public distribution requirements of the Canadian Stock Exchange (the " CSE ") and be in a position for final approval for listing on the CSE.

REGULATORIES APPROVAL STATUS UPDATE
Canadian Copper has obtained a receipt for its final non-offering long form Prospectus dated May 24, 2022 (the " Prospectus ") from the Ontario Securities Commission. The Prospectus has been filed under Multilateral Instrument 11-102 Passport System in British Columbia, Alberta, and New Brunswick.

Concurrent with its Prospectus, Canadian Copper has also received conditional approval from the CSE to list its common shares on the CSE under the ticker "CCI", subject to the satisfaction of the public distribution requirements and final approval from the CSE. The listing price of CCI is expected to be set at CAD $0.25. A date for trading will be determined upon confirmation of the conditions being met.

Top Stories This Week: Gold Price Bounces Back, Experts Talk Recession Question

Weekly August 5youtu.be

After dipping briefly below the US$1,700 per ounce mark in mid-July, gold is bouncing back.

The yellow metal has made a big move since last week's US Federal Reserve meeting, nearly making it to US$1,800. It was back down around US$1,775 at the time of this writing on Friday (August 5) afternoon.

The Fed hiked interest rates last week by 75 basis points, as was widely expected by market participants. Major indexes have been on the rise, which Lobo Tiggre of IndependentSpeculator.com told me is unsurprising.

VIDEO — Rick Rule: Glad to See Gold on Sale, "Solidly Bullish" on Uranium

Rick Rule Symposium 2022youtu.be

Gold has seen ups and downs this summer, but is solidly below its Q1 peak of over US$2,000 per ounce.

Speaking to the Investing News Network at the Rule Symposium in Florida, Rick Rule, the host of the event and proprietor at Rule Investment Media, said he sees the lack of interest in the yellow metal as positive.

"The fact that people are disinterested in gold, and disinterested in resources, I think is a wonderful thing because they're on sale," he explained, reminding listeners that he favors a contrarian approach to the markets.

Is Gold a Buy? Jim Cramer Says Timing Looks "Perfect"

As volatility reigns supreme across equity markets, many analysts are saying that gold’s fall below US$1,800 per ounce means it’s a good time to buy before the price goes up.

Gold's dip under that threshold began at the beginning of July, and is the first time the yellow metal has slipped below and held at that level since late 2021. The decline comes after gold breached US$2,000 in early March.

Many market participants remain resolute that it’s only a matter of time before gold regains its lost momentum, and that sentiment was echoed on Wednesday (August 3) by well-known TV personality Jim Cramer during the "Off the Charts" segment of his “Mad Money” investing show on CNBC.

Types of Gold Deposits in Australia

As the second largest gold-producing country in the world, Australia also boasts the largest gold mine reserves. In order to make more strategic decisions, investors will stand to benefit from understanding Australia's distinctive geography, specifically the types of gold deposits found in the country.

Australia has a rich history in mining. One of the biggest gold rushes took place in New South Wales, Australia in 1851, which later extended to the province of Victoria. Today, Victoria and its successful gold mines stand as some of the highest-yielding and high-grade resources. Victoria’s 13 goldfields have each produced over one million ounces of gold, most of which were from the world-class Fosterville deposit, Ballarat, Costerfield and Stawell.
