NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

YERINGTON, Nev., Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —  Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX: NCU) (OTC: NEVDF) (FSE: ZYTA) (“Nevada Copper” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary short form prospectus with the securities commissions in all provinces of Canada, except Quebec, in connection with a marketed public offering (the “Offering”) of units (the “Units”) of the Company seeking to raise aggregate gross proceeds of approximately C$75,000,000. The Company’s largest shareholder, Pala Investments Limited (“Pala”), has committed to purchase, on a private placement basis, an aggregate number of Units to maintain its current shareholding percentage in the Company (the “Private Placement”) after giving effect to both the Offering and the Private Placement (the “Purchased Units”) at the price per Purchased Unit determined in connection with the Offering.

Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (each a “Common Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each full warrant, a “Warrant” and collectively the “Warrants”). Each Warrant will be exercisable for one Common Share at any time for a period of 18 months following closing of the Offering. Final pricing of the Units, the Warrant exercise price and the determination of the number of Units to be sold pursuant to the Offering will be determined following marketing. The Offering will be conducted on an overnight marketed “best efforts” basis by a syndicate of underwriters to be formed and led by Scotiabank, as lead underwriter and sole-bookrunner (collectively, the “Underwriters”).

The Company intends to grant the Underwriters an option, exercisable in whole or in part, at the sole discretion of the Underwriters, at any time for a period of 30 days from and including the closing of the Offering, to purchase from the Company up to an additional 15% of the Units sold under the Offering, on the same terms and conditions of the Offering to cover over-allotments, if any, and for market stabilization purposes (the “Over-Allotment Option”). The Over-Allotment Option may be exercised by the Underwriters to purchase additional Units, Common Shares, Warrants or any combination thereof.

As announced on October 12, 2021, the Company entered into amendments to its amended and restated credit facility (the “KfW Facility”) with its senior project lender, KfW-IPEX Bank, for a significant deferral and extension of its debt facilities, providing substantially greater balance sheet flexibility and support for the completion of the ramp-up of its underground mining operations and subsequent advancement of its open pit project and broader property exploration targets. The Company expects the effectiveness of the deferral and extensions agreed under the KFW Facility to occur upon the closing of the Offering and the Private Placement.

Additionally, in connection with the Offering, the Company and Pala have agreed to amend the existing non-binding term sheet as previously announced on October 12, 2021 to provide for a binding commitment (the “Binding Term Sheet”) in respect of certain amendments to the credit facility entered into between Company and Pala on February 3, 2021 (as amended, the “Amended Credit Facility”). The Amended Credit Facility will consolidate all outstanding loans owing to Pala and the maturity date will be extended by two years from 2024 to 2026. Net proceeds raised in the Offering will replace the new tranche of up to US$41 million that was contemplated by the non-binding term sheet, which will be a significant improvement to the Company’s balance sheet. See the Company’s October 12, 2021 news release for additional details on the terms of the Amended Credit Facility.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for: (i) the development and ramp-up of the underground mine at the Company’s Pumpkin Hollow project (the “Underground Mine”); (ii) the repayment of bridge loans advanced under the promissory note issued by the Company to Pala on October 1, 2021, as amended and restated on November 1, 2021; and (iii) general corporate purposes. The net proceeds from the Private Placement will be utilized to retire and prepay an equivalent portion of the existing loans outstanding under the promissory note issued by the Company to Pala on June 10, 2021, as amended and restated (the “June Promissory Note”), such that Pala will continue to maintain its current shareholding percentage in the Company after giving effect to the Offering and the Private Placement. The balance of the June Promissory Note will be consolidated and extended under the Amended Credit Facility in accordance with the Binding Term Sheet.

The Offering is expected to close on or about November 29, 2021, or such other date as the Company and the Underwriters may agree. Closing of the Offering is subject to customary closing conditions, including, but not limited to, the execution of an underwriting agreement and the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the securities regulatory authorities and the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Private Placement is conditional on the closing of the Offering.

The preliminary short form prospectus is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. The Company has also today filed on SEDAR its condensed interim financial statements and the related management’s discussion and analysis for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.

This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of securities in the United States.

Lundin Mining Announces TSX Approval for a Normal Course Issuer Bid

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Dec. 6, 2021 /CNW/ – (TSX: LUN) (Nasdaq Stockholm: LUMI) Lundin Mining Corporation (“Lundin Mining” or the “Company”) announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) has accepted the notice of Lundin Mining’s intention to renew its normal course issuer bid (the “NCIB”).

The Company intends to continue to utilize the NCIB at its discretion to make opportunistic purchases to create shareholder value and manage the number of outstanding common shares of the Company (the “Common Shares”).

This approval allows the Company to purchase up to 63,762,574 Common Shares, representing 10% of the 735,122,870 issued and outstanding Common Shares as of November 30, 2021, minus those Common Shares beneficially owned, or over which control or direction is exercised by the Company, the senior officers and directors of the Company and every shareholder who owns or exercises control or direction over more than 10% of the outstanding Common Shares, over a period of twelve months commencing on December 9, 2021. The NCIB will expire no later than December 8, 2022.

All purchases made pursuant to the NCIB will be made through the facilities of the TSX or other alternative Canadian trading systems. In accordance with TSX rules, any daily purchases (other than pursuant to a block purchase exemption) on the TSX under the NCIB are limited to a maximum of 565,398 Common Shares, which represents 25% of the average daily trading volume of 2,261,595 Common Shares on the TSX for the six months ended November 30, 2021. The price that Lundin Mining will pay for Common Shares in open market transactions will be the market price at the time of purchase.

In connection with the NCIB renewal, Lundin Mining entered into an automatic repurchase plan with its designated broker to allow for the repurchase of Common Shares at times when the Company ordinarily would not be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods, insider trading rules or otherwise (any such period being an “Operating Period”). Before entering an Operating Period, the Company may, but is not required to, instruct the designated broker to make purchases under the NCIB in accordance with the terms of the plan. Purchases made pursuant to the plan, if any, will be made by the Company’s designated broker based upon the parameters prescribed by the TSX, applicable Canadian securities laws and the terms of the written agreement entered between the Company and its designated broker. Outside of these Operating Periods, Common Shares will be purchasable by Lundin Mining at its discretion under its NCIB.

The automatic repurchase plan will commence on the effective date of the NCIB and will terminate on the earliest of the date on which: (i) the purchase limit under the NCIB has been reached; (ii) the NCIB expires; and (iii) the Company terminates the automatic repurchase plan in accordance with its terms. The automatic repurchase plan constitutes an “automatic plan” for purposes of applicable Canadian securities legislation and the agreement governing the plan has been pre-cleared by the TSX.

The actual number of Common Shares that may be purchased and the timing of such purchases will be determined by the Company. Decisions regarding purchases will be based on market conditions, share price, best use of available cash, and other factors. Any Common Shares that are purchased under the NCIB will be cancelled.

Under the Company’s current NCIB that commenced on December 9, 2020 and expires on December 8, 2021, the Company previously sought and received approval from the TSX to purchase up to 63,682,170 Common Shares. As of November 30, 2021, the Company has purchased 4,323,100 Common Shares under its current NCIB through open market transactions at a weighted average price of approximately $11.25 per Common Share.

Cautionary Statement in Forward-Looking Information

Certain of the statements made and information contained herein is “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities laws. All statements other than statements of historical facts included in this document constitute forward-looking information, including but not limited to statements with respect to Lundin Mining’s proposed normal course issuer bid, the Company’s pre-defined plan with its broker to allow for the repurchase of Common Shares, and the number of Common Shares that may be purchased under the normal course issuer bid.

Forward-looking information is necessarily based upon various estimates and assumptions including, without limitation, the expectations and beliefs of management; assumed and future price of copper, nickel, zinc, gold and other metals; anticipated costs; ability to achieve goals; the prompt and effective integration of acquisitions; that the political environment in which the Company operates will continue to support the development and operation of mining projects; the Common Shares will, from time to time, trade below their value; the Company will complete purchases of Common Shares pursuant to the NCIB; and assumptions related to the factors set forth below. While these factors and assumptions are considered reasonable by Lundin Mining as at the date of this document in light of management’s experience and perception of current conditions and expected developments, these statements are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. Known and unknown factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements and undue reliance should not be placed on such statements and information.

Should one or more of these risks and uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in forward-looking information. There can be no assurance that the Common Shares will, from time to time, trade below their value and that the Company will complete purchases of Common Shares pursuant to the NCIB. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that forward-looking information will prove to be accurate and forward-looking information is not a guarantee of future performance. Readers are advised not to place undue reliance on forward-looking information. The forward-looking information contained herein speaks only as of the date of this document. The Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise forward-looking information or to explain any material difference between such and subsequent actual events, except as required by applicable law.
