Trevali Mining Corporation ("Trevali" or the "Company") (TSX: TV) (BVL: TV) (OTCQX: TREVF) ( Frankfurt : 4TI) provides an update on search and rescue efforts for eight missing workers as well as progress made on mine rehabilitation and dewatering at the Perkoa Mine in Burkina Faso following intense rainfall that occurred in the early morning of April 16, 2022 and resulted in flooding of the mine.

Eight workers remain unaccounted for following the evacuation of the underground area of the mine and the Company is working closely with Burkinabe authorities as search and rescue efforts continue. Mining and milling operations at Perkoa will remain suspended for the foreseeable future as the Company investigates the cause of the flood event.

The Company initially reported the incident on April 16, 2022 , the date of the flooding. A second release was issued April 21, 2022 to provide an update on the Company's activities in response to the flooding of the mine and convey the initial assessment of events surrounding the flood event at the Perkoa Mine. The Company today provides a further update on its activities in response to the flooding of the mine, particularly the logistical operation behind the search and rescue efforts for the missing workers, which includes mine decline rehabilitation and dewatering activities.

"Our primary focus is the search for our colleagues and to do this we are getting pumping and other dewatering equipment where it is most needed," said Ricus Grimbeek, President and CEO. "The flood eroded the decline ramp that is the primary access to all levels of the mine and repairing this access ramp for safe use was a critical initial step in our efforts. With the completion of the decline rehabilitation to Level 520, pumping capacity has now increased, including the installation of a new 5,000-metre pipeline to surface with multiple teams of welders dedicated to completing the assembly and installation. Trevali's senior leadership and Byrnecut, Trevali's mining contractor at the Perkoa Mine, continue to meet with the families of the missing workers and to ensure they have everything they need in these difficult times. We are grateful for the valuable support from the Burkina Faso government and the broader Burkina Faso mining community who are providing all assistance possible in our search and rescue efforts."

The Company has had regular communications with, and received assistance from, the Burkinabe Ministry of Mines and Quarries, the National Emergency Rescue, Military Civil Construction, the Governor of Central-West Region, and the High Commissioner of Réo. A delegation from the government was provided a briefing at the Perkoa Mine site on April 23 . Representatives included the Minister of Mines and Quarries, the Minister of Environment, the Minister of Labour, the Minister of Religious and Cultural Activities, the Governor of Central-West Region and the President of the Chamber of Mines.

Additional updates:

  • The water level in the mine has settled at approximately Level 520 (520 metres from surface). Communications and electrical power have now been re-established to Level 520.

  • While most workers underground or preparing to enter the mine were able to safely evacuate, the eight missing workers were working below Level 520 at the time of the flooding and there has been no communication with these workers since soon after the evacuation order was given. There are two refuge chambers located below Level 520 that are designed to provide a refuge for workers trapped in a hazardous environment. We do not know if some or all of the eight missing workers were able to access these refuge chambers.

  • The decline ramp roadway is the essential access for vehicles moving people and equipment between levels in the mine. The torrent of water entering the mine resulted in significant road surface erosion. Rehabilitation of the decline ramp is essential to allow the transport of larger pumps to Level 520 to increase dewatering capacity. The Company has completed approximately 3,643 metres of an estimated 5,000 metres of decline ramp rehabilitation the Company believes is required to gain access to lower mine levels, reaching the water level at Level 520 as of April 23 .

  • The Company has a three-stage dewatering plan, of which the first two stages – the repurposing of existing piping to commence initial dewatering efforts, followed by the installation of additional underground pumping infrastructure to facilitate an increase in pumping capacity – are now complete and actively pumping. The third stage, which is currently in progress, involves the installation of 5,000 metres of new piping and higher-capacity pumps to increase pumping capacity. Multiple welding crews are mobilized for this assembly effort.

  • The objective of the plan is to dewater the mine to continue the search and rescue efforts for the missing colleagues while working toward completely dewatering to the lowest level of the mine. The Company has also re-established sump pumping in the open pit and doubled pumping volume capacity as a precautionary measure while we continue to investigate the cause of the event.

The Company will provide further details on progress of search and rescue activities and site investigation as more information becomes available.

Trevali Provides Update on Search and Dewatering Efforts at Perkoa Mine

Trevali Mining Corporation ("Trevali" or the "Company") (TSX: TV) (BVL: TV) (OTCQX: TREVF) ( Frankfurt : 4TI) provides an update on circumstances at the Perkoa Mine in Burkina Faso following the serious flooding incident on April 16 where the Company and government authorities have been working on the search efforts 24 hours per day.

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

The Company's overarching priority has been, and continues to be, finding the eight miners still missing at the mine. We are working 24 hours a day to dewater the mine and reach our missing colleagues and continue to work hand in hand with the Burkina Faso government, authorities and emergency services at all levels.

Despite the comprehensive efforts of the search teams, including the continued addition of extra pumping equipment during the search and de-watering process, we have yet to find the missing miners. There is a refuge chamber at a depth of approximately 570 metres which is primarily designed to provide protection from industrial hazards that workers might encounter underground, such as smoke from fire, gas emissions, fall-of-ground, and ventilation failure. We cannot be certain whether all or some of the miners managed to reach the refuge as we have had no communication with the missing since April 16 .

The miners were last located at various locations below Level 520 and based on planned work patterns that day and our last contact with them, it is unlikely that they would have been together when the flooding occurred, or that all of them would have been able to make it to the refuge.

In order to safely regain access to the mine, we have to rebuild the five-kilometre-long underground access ramp and to date we have restored more than 3,800 metres using more than 25,000 tonnes of waste rock. During this work, the massive scale of the flood has become clearer. We currently estimate that more than 165 million litres of floodwater swept through the underground portion of the mine. These floodwaters caused extensive damage to ramps and access roads, as well as underground infrastructure. Approximately 38 million litres of water has been pumped out of the mine as of May 11 .

All of us at Trevali are hugely grateful for the continued assistance provided by Burkinabe authorities, including enabling the imports of equipment for the search effort, and expediting air carriers able to transport heavy machinery into the country, which has greatly accelerated the dewatering and search efforts. The Company has also benefitted from the relocation of the crisis management committee to the Sanguié region near the Perkoa mine site and from the support provided by government officials in daily planning meetings. Trevali will continue to welcome support from those able to assist in the search effort. Trevali and Byrnecut, the mining contractor at Perkoa, also remain in daily communication with the families of the missing workers and we continue to offer our heartfelt support.

"The environment underground in any mine is dynamic, and our teams are working round the clock, adjusting methods and adapting to the circumstances we confront as we gain deeper access in the mine," said Ricus Grimbeek, President and CEO. "We will continue to make every effort, using all available equipment and personnel, and will continue to look for any and all opportunities to safely speed up the search operation. We acknowledge the frustration of the families and the community, and we are listening to their concerns. We are committed to locating our missing colleagues as soon as possible."

Summary of Dewatering and Mine Access Rehabilitation Efforts To-Date

The response to the flood event began on the morning of April 16 with the initiation of evacuation orders and mine rescue efforts, followed by immediate action to focus search efforts on dewatering and mine access rehabilitation to quickly gain access to lower levels of the mine.

A three-phase plan was initiated to dewater the mine. Phase One involved repurposing existing service water piping systems to support initial dewatering, sump pumping in the open pit, and establishing surface pump stations to receive water from the underground. This was quickly followed by Phase Two, which involved the rehabilitation of mine access and reconstructing the road surface to re-establish the mine's existing underground dewatering system that had been damaged by the flooding. Phase Three involved the installation of significant additional pumping and dewatering infrastructure, strainer boxes, and more than 5,000 metres of new poly pipe while simultaneously gaining access to the lower levels of the mine. In total, the multiple dewatering systems are comprised of more than 24 electric submersible and diesel pumps. A series of pumps is required in order to provide the pressure required to move the water from the lower level some 550 meters vertical to the surface.

As part of its efforts Trevali continues to source and transport additional machinery and equipment to the Perkoa Mine site, including installing pumps that arrived from Ghana by truck and from South Africa by air, expedited with the assistance of the Burkina Faso government and Air France. Other mining companies in Burkina Faso have provided support in the form of pumps and operational assistance. The National Fire Brigade has also been continually on site and has provided additional emergency response support and expertise.

Both the Company and the government are undertaking ongoing investigations into the circumstances that resulted in this flood event, and Trevali has welcomed visits from all government authorities who have requested site access. The Company fully supports an open and independent investigation and will provide any assistance that may be required.

The Company will provide further details on the progress of search activities as circumstances warrant.

Trevali Provides an Update on Search and Rescue Efforts at its Perkoa Mine in Response to Flooding Event and Suspends Perkoa Production Guidance

Trevali Mining Corporation ("Trevali" or the "Company") (TSX: TV) (BVL: TV) (OTCQX: TREVF) ( Frankfurt : 4TI) provides an update on search and rescue efforts at the Perkoa Mine in Burkina Faso following intense rainfall that occurred in the early morning of April 16, 2022 and resulted in a flash flood that breached protective berms surrounding the open pit.

Eight workers remain unaccounted for following the evacuation of the underground area of the mine and search and rescue efforts continue. Mining and milling operations at Perkoa will remain suspended for the foreseeable future and the Company is working closely with Burkinabe authorities as it investigates the cause of the flood event following heavy rainfall of approximately 125 mm of rain that fell in less than an hour.

Trevali's senior leaders, including Ricus Grimbeek, President and Chief Executive Officer, Derek du Preez, Chief Operating Officer, and Richard Weishaupt , Senior Vice President, Health, Safety, Environment & Community, have travelled to the Perkoa Mine site and are conducting site and area inspections, an inspection of accessible areas of the underground mine, and will have conversations with the families of the eight missing workers.

"Our primary focus has been, and will remain, the search and rescue of the missing eight miners and our thoughts are with the families, friends, and colleagues who have been impacted," said Ricus Grimbeek, President and CEO. "In the days following the flash flood, we have been working tirelessly with the support of various government agencies and officials who have made numerous visits to the mine site and are working in coordination with rescue efforts. We have also received tremendous support from the extended mining community in Burkina Faso , who have volunteered highly trained personnel and equipment for use in the search and rescue."

"The health and safety of our workers is our top priority, and all efforts are being made to extend the search into the lower levels of the Perkoa Mine. We will not cease our efforts until we have found our missing colleagues."

In the days following the flash flood, Perkoa employees and Trevali management have continued to work with Byrnecut, Trevali's mining contractor at the Perkoa Mine, to support the families and community members of the missing workers. Management from both companies are in daily contact with family members of the missing eight workers to provide assistance, support, and updates on the rescue operation.

After initial assessment, the following has been determined:

  • A heavy rainfall event with approximately 125 mm of rain in less than an hour, as reported by the Ministry of Mines and Quarries in an April 19 Communique, occurred the morning of April 16 in the region of the Perkoa Mine, triggering local flash floods. This rain event occurred outside the usual rainy season, which is June to September.
  • The open pit of the Perkoa Mine was surrounded by two separate berms that were breached by the flash flood. Water entered the open pit and subsequently went into the underground mine. As the water entered the mine, electricity and communications underground were lost.
  • While the majority of workers underground or preparing to enter the mine were able to safely evacuate, eight workers remain unaccounted for. There has been no communication with these workers since soon after the evacuation order was given.

Subsequent to evacuation:

  • After flooding stopped, the water level in the mine settled at approximately Level 520 (520 metres from surface). The search above this level was completed as of April 16, 2022 . Mine depth is to Level 710.
  • Personnel from the Burkinabe Ministry of Mines and Quarries, the National Emergency Rescue, Military Civil Construction, the Governor of Central West Region, and High Commissioner of Réo have made numerous visits to the mine site and are working in coordination with rescue efforts.
  • Communications have been re-established to Level 520 and electrical power is re-established to Level 430.

The Company will provide further details on progress of the mine rescue and site investigation as more information becomes available.

2022 Production guidance for Perkoa suspended

All underground mining and surface activities at Perkoa remain suspended as the search and rescue operation continues and the Company and authorities investigate the flood event. The current suspension, investigation and review of future mining at the Perkoa Mine will likely result in reduced zinc production in 2022 for the Company relative to previously released annual guidance. The requirements for infrastructure refurbishment and construction linked to repairs and rehabilitation at the mine remain unknown, as does the timing for a potential restart of mining and processing activities. Underground development activities will only recommence once it has been determined that this can be done safely. As the Company's investigation progresses and the assessment of the underground areas advances, we will provide additional detail on the estimated impact on mining operations. In the meantime, we are suspending our production and cost guidance for 2022 as it relates to Perkoa.
