- Application for Mining License (“ML”) filed with Namibia’s Ministry of Mines and Energy
- Osino is fast-tracking the necessary specialist studies to progress and conclude the Twin Hills mine permitting process in accordance with Namibia’s regulatory process
- Environmental baseline studies nearing completion
- Formal public participation process and stakeholder engagement underway
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Osino Resources Corp. (TSXV:OSI) (FSE:RSR1) (OTCQX:OSIIF) ("Osino” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has filed an application with Namibia’s Ministry of Mines and Energy for a mining license at its flagship Twin Hills Gold Project (“Twin Hills” or “the Project”) in Namibia.
The application comes after the Company released a Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) on Twin Hills earlier this month. Osino’s technical team and specialist consultants are presently engaged in fulfilling the administrative and technical requirements which the application’s approval is conditional upon.
Heye Daun, Osino’s President & CEO comments, “Applying for a mining license is a major step forward in the de-risking and advancement of the Twin Hills gold project towards construction and gold production. It is the most significant component amongst a variety of other permitting activities and clearance certificates required under Namibia’s minerals and environmental legislation. Osino plans to conclude all these steps over the next 12 months. We thank the Namibian regulators, especially the Ministry of Mines and Energy, who have been very helpful and co-operative in getting us to this point.”
Mining License Application
On August 25, 2021, Osino applied for a mining license under Namibia’s Minerals (Prospecting & Mining) Act of 1992. The mining license application is for a term of 20 years and covers an area of 6,229.7 hectare.
Amongst the prerequisites that need to be fulfilled by the applicant are the completion of an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (“ESIA”), an Environmental Management Plan (“EMP”), a mine closure plan and environmental clearance certificates for several listed activities under Namibia’s Environmental Management Act. No. 7 of 2007.
This includes a formal public participation process which has commenced. Osino has also been engaged in ongoing, informal stakeholder consultation and is expanding this in order to build on the positive community support already received.
The mining license for the Otjikoto Gold Mine (“Otjikoto”) in Namibia was granted to B2Gold Namibia (“B2Gold”) in December 2012 after the application was made 15 months earlier, in September 2011, by Auryx Gold Corp., Otjikoto’s former owners, and subsequent founders and principals of Osino. B2Gold commenced with construction of the Otjikoto Mine in April 2013 and the first gold pour at Otjikoto occurred on December 11, 2014, approximately 19 months later.
The administrative and technical permitting process followed then has stayed substantially the same. Osino thus expects that the mining licence for Twin Hills should get approved within a similar timeframe.
Environmental and Social Impact Assessment
Osino’s ESIA process has commenced and is being managed by a Namibian specialist environmental consulting firm, Environmental Clearance Consultants CC (“ECC”). ECC has managed the various specialist baseline studies (flora & fauna, air quality, noise, visual impact, heritage etc.) which form part of the ESIA and have been substantially completed.
ECC have also been engaged by Osino to assist with concluding the other licensing and environmental clearance requirements which are a prerequisite for the mining license application to be granted. This includes compiling the EMP and mine closure plan for the Twin Hills project and securing the clearance certificates for all the other listed activities under Namibia’s mining and environmental regulations.
It is expected that all the permitting requirements for the fulfilment of the mining license application process will be completed over the next 12 months.

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – TheNewswire - September 17, 2021 – UEX Corporation (TSX:UEX) (OTC:UEXCF) (“UEX” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has repaid its outstanding term loan (the “Term Loan”) from Denison Mines Corp. (“Denison”). The Term Loan was used by UEX to purchase JCU (Canada) Exploration Company, Limited (“JCU”), as more particularly described in UEX’s news release dated August 3, 2021.
UEX repaid the outstanding balance of C$20.45 million to Denison on September 17, 2021. Previously, C$20.5 million of the Term Loan was repaid upon UEX transferring 50% of the JCU shares to Denison immediately following the closing of the JCU acquisition (see UEX’s news release dated August 3, 2021). The shares of JCU owned by UEX that were pledged as security to Denison have been released to UEX.
UEX is a Canadian uranium and cobalt exploration and development company involved in an exceptional portfolio of uranium projects.
UEX’s directly-owned portfolio of projects is located in the eastern, western and northern perimeters of the Athabasca Basin, the world's richest uranium belt which in 2020 accounted for approximately 8.1% of the global primary uranium production. In addition to advancing its uranium development projects through its ownership interest in JCU, UEX is currently advancing several other uranium deposits in the Athabasca Basin which include the Paul Bay, Ken Pen and Ōrora deposits at the Christie Lake Project , the Kianna, Anne, Colette and 58B deposits at its currently 49.1%-owned Shea Creek Project, the Horseshoe and Raven deposits located on its 100%-owned Horseshoe-Raven Development Project and the West Bear Uranium Deposit located at its 100%-owned West Bear Project.
UEX is also 50:50 co-owner of JCU with Denison. JCU’s portfolio of projects includes interests in some of Canada’s key future uranium development projects, notably a 30.099% interest in Cameco’s Millennium Uranium Development Project, a 10% interest in Denison Mines Wheeler River Project, and a 33.8123% interest in Orano Canada’s Kiggavik Project, located in the Thelon Basin in Nunavut, as well as minority interests in nine other grassroots uranium projects in the Athabasca Basin.
UEX is also leading the discovery of cobalt in Canada, with three cobalt-nickel exploration projects located in the Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan, including the only primary cobalt deposit in Canada. The 100% owned West Bear Project hosts the West Bear Cobalt-Nickel Deposit, the newly discovered Michael Lake Co-Ni Zone, and the West Bear Uranium Deposit. UEX also owns 100% of two early-stage cobalt exploration projects, the Axis Lake and Key West Projects.
