Nyrstar: Response to comments made by South Australian Government
17 May 2018 at 19.00PM CEST

Nyrstar NV ("Nyrstar" or the "Company") notes the comments made by the Treasurer of South Australia, the Hon. Rob Lucas MLC, to the Legislative Council of the South Australian Parliament on Thursday, 17 May 2018 in relation to the timing of the payment of the Perpetual Securities for the Port Pirie Redevelopment (the "Project").

In line with the funding agreement with the South Australian Government, Nyrstar has full discretion to defer payment of the Perpetual Securities. The Perpetual Securities are directly linked to the progress of the Project and are structured as equity-like funding. As previously communicated, the Project construction was delayed by 18 months and was also subject to significant cost overruns that were funded entirely by Nyrstar. The delay in the start of the ramp-up is impacting the realisation of cash flows from the Project relative to the timeline contemplated at the time the financing arrangements were finalised in 2014. Therefore, Nyrstar has elected to defer payment of the Perpetual Securities.

Nyrstar has not breached any agreements by delaying the payment and is in full compliance with its contractual obligations relating to the financing arrangements.

As communicated during the Q1 2018 Interim Management Statement, Nyrstar is making pleasing progress with the Project ramp-up with operating time, tonnes of feed to the TSL furnace and tonnes of slag product all at new monthly highs for April 2018. There is no change in the expected earnings uplift as guided by management in the latest quarterly results presentation.

The Port Pirie operation directly employs more than 700 people and Nyrstar has invested approximately AUD 660 million in the Project since 2014 which will ensure the long term sustainability of the operation for the people of South Australia. In addition, Nyrstar has consistently invested in community development programmes and is committed to working with the South Australian government and our community to deliver the programmes to create positive change in Port Pirie.

Interview with Peter Clausi, President, CEO of CBLT Inc. (TSXV: CBLT): A Successful Canadian Cobalt Project Generator
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, US


CBLT Inc. (TSXV:CBLT) is a Canadian mineral exploration company and a project generator with a proven leadership team, targeting cobalt in reliable mining jurisdictions. We learned from Peter Clausi, President, CEO of CBLT, that the company was one of the first to move into cobalt space three years ago and were able to acquire cobalt properties fairly cheaply. According to Mr. Clausi, cobalt is an essential ingredient in the electrification of the world; without it, we don't have efficient lithium ion batteries. In 2018 and 2019 the company plans to stick with their business plan to monetize some of the assets turning them into non-dilutive financings. With cobalt prices right now up roughly 400% since February of 2016 and with the supply chain for cobalt from Congo being so unsteady, Mr. Clausi believes that the cobalt market is going to skyrocket.

by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, US


Golden Ridge Resources Ltd. (TSXV: GLDN) is actively exploring its flagship high grade Hank Au-Ag project in the heart of BC’s Golden Triangle. The project is located approximately 140 kilometers north of Stewart, British Columbia. Golden Ridge may earn 100% interest in the project by performing $1.7M of exploration work by the end of 2018. We learned from Mike Blady, CEO of Golden Ridge Resources, that in 2017, they drilled 4,250 meters at the Hank property, testing the historic geologic model that Barrick and previous operators had put forth.

Plans for 2018 include an 8,000 to 10,000 meters exploration drilling program that starts as early as they are able to get on the property this spring. According to Mr. Blady, very shortly Golden Ridge will earn 100% ownership of the Hank property, which is an exciting moment for the Company.

Nevada Copper (TSX: NCU): The Only Fully-Permitted, Shovel Ready Copper Project in the USA, Interview with Stephen Gill, Chairman
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, US


Nevada Copper (TSX: NCU) owns 100% of the Pumpkin Hollow Copper Development Property, located near Yerington Nevada, US. Pumpkin Hollow is a large, advanced-stage-development, copper property, with substantial reserves and resources including copper, gold, silver, as well as a large iron resource. Pumpkin Hollow copper project is located entirely on private land close to infrastructure with all required power and water supplies secured, all required Nevada permits for construction and mine operations are in hand for both and underground and open pit operation. We learned from Stephen Gill, Chairman of Nevada Copper, that the Pumpkin Hollow asset, in Nevada contains two mines in one project. They're the only two new sources of copper supply out of the US that are permitted today. Nevada Copper is focused on bringing Pumpkin Hollow into production first from its underground mine, which is partially constructed today and aims to be online by late next year. Behind that underground mine is a very large open pit mine, with around five billion pounds of copper reserved and substantially more resource potential. According to Mr. Gill, there's a desperate need for new copper supply in the world due to a period of underinvestment and new sources of demand associated with electric vehicles, and no major has a big project ready to go.

Wheaton Precious Metals (NYSE: WPM, TSX: WPM): The World’s Largest, High-Margin, Pure Silver and Gold Streaming Company, Interview with Randy Smallwood, President and CEO
by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, US


Wheaton Precious Metals (NYSE: WPM, TSX: WPM) is the world’s largest, high-margin, pure silver and gold streaming company, that offers investors cost predictability, direct leverage to increasing silver and gold prices, and a high-quality asset base. We learned from Randy Smallwood, President and CEO of Wheaton Precious Metals, that they produce substantially more metal than any other streaming company, and have substantially more cash flow than any other streaming company. Their business model is to enter into contracts with mining companies to purchase the right to all or a portion of the gold or silver production for an upfront payment and an additional payment upon delivery of the precious metal, which is typically at a low, fixed price. The gold and/or silver is then delivered to them and they turn around and sell that back into the marketplace at the spot price. Their cashflow is the difference between their fixed payment and the current spot price. Because it's a percentage of whatever the mine produces, they also get exposure to any exploration success or expansion potential. Such business models deliver all the benefits of a good sound mining investment, but don't have the cost risk that a traditional mining investment has. So it's much more attractive than your traditional mining company.
