About Palmer

Palmer is a high-grade volcanogenic massive sulphide-sulfate (“VMS”) project located in a highly accessible part of the southeast coast of Alaska, with road access to the project and less than 60 kilometers from the port in Deep water open year round from Haines.

In 2019, the Company reported a positive Preliminary Economic Assessment (“2019 PEA”) for the Project with an after-tax NPVseven% $266 million (see the company’s press release dated June 3rd2019). The PEA 2019 has been amended, and replaced by, a technical report dated March 7, 2022, and entitled “Modified NI 43-101 Technical Report Palmer Project Alaska, USA” (the “Amended PEA”) and filed on SEDAR ( on March 11, 2022 (see press release dated March 11, 2022). The amended PEA highlighted the potential for low capital expenditure, low operating cost and high margin underground mining with attractive environmental attributes. Metal prices used were copper at $2.82/lb, zinc at $1.22/lb, silver at $16.26/oz, gold at $1,296/oz and barite at $220/ton.

The Amended PEA is preliminary in nature and includes Inferred Mineral Resources that are considered too geologically speculative to have economic considerations applied to them that would allow them to be classified as Mineral Reserves. There is no certainty that the results of the amended PEA will be realized. Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Exploration work at Palmer has revealed 4.68 million tons of indicated resources grading 5.23% zinc, 1.49% copper, 30.0 g/t silver, 0.30 g/t gold and 9.6 million tons of inferred resources grading 4.95% zinc, 0.59% copper, 69.3 g/t silver, 0.39 g/t gold1. VMS deposits are known to occur in clusters, and with at least twenty-five distinct occurrences and prospects of base metals and/or barite on the project, there is abundant potential for the discovery of multiple deposits.
