True North Copper Limited (ASX:TNC) (True North, TNC or the Company) is pleased to announce it has signed binding offtake and toll-milling agreements with one of the world’s largest natural resource companies, Glencore International AG (Glencore) for its Cloncurry Copper Project (CCP) in Queensland (see Figure 1).

  • Mutually agreed ore delivery and processing schedules.
  • Agreement in place ahead of mining and processing of sulphide ores.
  • Offtake agreement sales price for the metals contained in the copper concentrate in line with the market commercial terms for copper concentrate, including adjustments for penalties, treatment and refining charges and a freight credit.

    • agreed process for assaying, weighing, sampling and moisture determination in relation to copper concentrate produced.

Key benefits to TNC and the Cloncurry Copper Project:

  • Concentrate processed at the nearby Mt Isa Smelter (approx. 120km by major arterial road network), providing greater freight certainty and economic and logistics value (see Figure 2).
  • TNC will be entitled to claim 20% Queensland State Royalty discount for all material processed through the Mt Isa Smelter.
  • Provides certainty of concentrate sales for the CCP.
COMMENT

True North Copper Managing Director, Marty Costello said:

“Executing binding offtake and toll-milling agreements with an industry major such as Glencore is a significant milestone for TNC and our Cloncurry Copper Project. Glencore has agreed to purchase 100% of the copper metal produced at CCP and we can process up to one million tonnes of ore, each year, through the nearby Processing Plant near Cloncurry.

CCP is fully permitted and TNC is on track to soon be in production for copper with CCP located in a Tier One jurisdiction. TNC’s investment thesis since listing last year has only improved, and we are excited to demonstrate this in the weeks and months to come. We’re thrilled to partner with Glencore, recognising our substantial synergies and potential for future collaborations. We are also incredibly proud this partnership will deliver economic benefits to north-west Queensland. We aim to create as many jobs and opportunities as possible for the people, businesses and communities of north-west Queensland.”

Trilogy Metals Provides Update on the Ambler Access Project

Trilogy Metals Inc. (TSX: TMQ) (NYSE American: TMQ) ("Trilogy" or the "Company") is providing an update on the Ambler Access Project - the proposed 211-mile, industrial-use-only road from the Upper Kobuk Mineral Projects to the Dalton Highway that would enable the advancement of exploration and development at the Ambler Mining District, home to some of the world's richest known copper-dominant polymetallic deposits.

On April 16, 2024 , the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority ("AIDEA") issued a press release in response to media reports indicating the Department of Interior plans to block access to the Ambler Mining District by issuing a "no action" decision.  In its press release, AIDEA strongly urges the Department of Interior to comply with federal law and the promises made at statehood to allow access to state lands and minerals for the Ambler Access Road Project.

Forum Energy: Ambient Noise Tomography Survey Establishes New Drill Targets over 1+ km Extension Along the Tatiggaq Fault Zone, Aberdeen Uranium Project, Nunavut

Forum Energy Metals Corp. (TSXV: FMC) (OTCQB: FDCFF) ("Forum" or the "Company") has reviewed initial data processed from its Ambient Noise Tomography (ANT) survey conducted over the Tatiggaq anomaly during the summer of 2023, The survey successfully established new drill targets over a one plus kilometer east-northeast extension along the Tatiggaq fault zone, which hosts the high-grade Tatiggaq uranium discovery at Forum's 100% owned Aberdeen Project in the Thelon Basin, Nunavut. The Aberdeen project comprises 95,500 hectares and is located adjacent to Orano's 133 million pound Kiggavik uranium project* (Figure 1).

Dr. Rebecca Hunter, Forum's VP, Exploration commented, "The ANT survey may be a game-changing geophysical method for targeting unconformity systems in the northeast Thelon Basin. By measuring the velocity change interfaces throughout our anomalies, we can potentially image the faults that host the mineralization and the location of the mineralized bodies themselves. The survey results obtained suggest we will be able to target our drilling with a much higher degree of precision than what could be done in the past. I am very excited to resume on our Aberdeen Project in 2024."
