YERINGTON, Nev., Nov. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX: NCU) (OTC: NEVDF) (FSE: ZYTA) (“Nevada Copper” or the “Company”) today provided an update on its operations, including advances at the Company’s underground mine at its Pumpkin Hollow Project (the “Underground Mine”) and an update on its 2022 development plan.

Underground Mine Operations Highlights

  • Lateral Development Rates Continue to Rise. The Company has advanced approximately 760 lateral equivalent feet in the past 30 days, a 20% increase in average daily footage from the previous 30 days. Lateral development continues on multiple headings, providing access to ore mining zones in the East South orebody and advancing development towards the East North orebody.  
  • Sugar Cube to be Blasted Shortly. The high-grade Sugar Cube zone is planned to be drilled in December and mining is expected to commence in early Q1 2022. This will be the first stope mined in the East North orebody, which is expected to have higher quality ground conditions and significantly larger stope sizes.
  • Processing Plant Operating Well. The mill continues to run at design specifications with the grinding, flotation, thickening, and concentrate filtration circuits performing well mechanically. The Company anticipates increased production and recovery rates with the addition of the Sugar Cube zone to the processing plant’s ore feed in Q1 2022.
  • Surface Ventilation Fans on Schedule. The surface ventilation fans are on schedule to arrive on site in approximately 3 weeks with installation and commissioning expected to be completed on time in line with the demands of the mine plan.

2022 Development Plan Update

  • Open Pit Drilling and Progressing. With additional funding received from the Company’s recent public equity offering, the Company intends to undertake an infill drilling campaign and to update its open pit studies to reflect opportunities for increased scale, larger resource and other optimization workstreams. Further updates on the Company’s 2022 development plan will be released shortly.

“I am pleased with the operational advances we have achieved this month, as we build on the progress from Q3,” stated Randy Buffington, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our development rates continue to increase on a weekly basis and will soon provide access to the larger high-grade stopes, which is expected to result in increased ore feed delivered to our fully operational processing plant for a step further in our ramp-up progression.”

CORRECTION — Robex Resources Inc.: Excellent December Performance Continuing Into January

CITY OF QUEBEC, Jan. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Please note that there was an error in a press release issued by Robex Resources Inc. (TSXV: RBX) under…

CITY OF QUEBEC, Jan. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Please note that there was an error in a press release issued by Robex Resources Inc. (TSXV: RBX) under the same headline on January 18, 2022, at 09:30 am EST. The corrected release follows:

Robex Resources Inc. (“Robex”, the “Group” or the “Company”) (TSXV: RBX)

Record December production

ROBEX Resources Inc. is pleased to announce a record production in December 2021 with a monthly tonnage of 192,024 tonnes at a grade of 0.94 g/t, producing 166 kg (5,337 oz of doré).

This production rate continues with 95,877 tonnes of ore processed during the first 15 days of January.

The new mining plan established this year enabled us to optimize the Nampala resources. The results confirm this strategy’s effectiveness:

Period Tonnage
(tonnes)
Grade
(g/t)
Stripping
(S/M)
Production
(Oz)
Q1 2021 472,410 0.75 5.70 10,642
Q2 2021 474,435 0.82 4.75 11,124
Q3 2021 481,690 0.79 2.77 11,317
Q4 2021 519,749 0.88 3.23 13,471
Annual 1,948,284 0.81 4.11 46,554

We have seen a continuous improvement throughout 2021:

  • Tonnage was up strongly, which is explained by the commissioning of multiple investments: first the cone crusher, then in December the new cyclone pumps that enabled us to achieve the December production record. Investment in a new crusher feeder planned for 2022 should enable us to further improve the plant’s efficiency.
  • Steady improvement in grade and stripping ratio with the new mining plan.

Improvement in production costs

The combined effect of tonnage increase, grade improvement and lower stripping ratio have significantly improved production costs.

External growth

In addition to these production improvements, Robex continues to actively pursue its ambitions for external growth. Accordingly, and as previously announced, management is currently examining various projects to implement the Company’s business plan and achieve its new objectives.

Situation in Mali

Robex is closely monitoring developments in Mali and the possible consequences of international decisions on the mining sector.

For the moment, operations continue as usual with no particular impact.

For more information, the Robex management report and summary interim consolidated financial statements (unaudited) are available on the Company’s website in the Investors section. These reports and other documents produced by the Company are also available at: sedar.com.

A word from the chairman, Mr. Georges Cohen:

“Once again, I congratulate the team for the great work and the improvement in Nampala’s results.

This press release allows me also to thank all our employees in Quebec and Mali for their accomplishments and wish them and our shareholders a great 2022.”

About ROBEX:

Robex Resources Inc. is a TSX-V listed Canadian mining company with exploration properties in Mali and an operating mine. The group has a strong business model, which demonstrated great results with the Nampala mine. With this experience, Robex is now striving to grow in West Africa by acquiring and/or developing new mines.
