TNR Gold Bought 5,616,000 Shares to Date Under Normal Course Issuer Bid

21.02.2024 | 14:30 Uhr | Newsfile

Vancouver, February 21, 2024 - TNR Gold Corp. (TSXV: TNR) ("TNR", "TNR Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to provide a corporate update and announce that the Company has purchased 5,616,000 shares to date under its normal course issuer bid.

As announced on June 1, 2023, TNR Gold is conducting a normal course issuer bid (the "Bid") pursuant to which the Company may purchase up to a maximum of 9,548,639 common shares of the Company (the "Shares"), representing approximately 5% of the Company's outstanding common shares ("Shares"). No more than 2% of the outstanding Shares may be purchased in any 30-day period.

The Company intends to terminate the Bid on or about June 4, 2024. Purchases pursuant to the Bid are being made from time to time by PI Financial Corp. on behalf of the Company through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange. Shares purchased will be paid for with cash available from the Company's working capital. All Shares purchased pursuant to the Bid will be returned to treasury as authorized and unissued shares.

The Company is of the view that the recent market prices of its Shares do not properly reflect the underlying value of the Shares. No insiders of the Company intend to participate in the Bid.

"We are building the green energy metals royalty and gold company", commented Kirill Klip, Executive Chairman of TNR Gold. "Our business model provides a unique entry point in the creation of supply chains for critical materials like energy metals that are powering the energy rEVolution, and the gold industry that is providing a hedge for this stage of the economic cycle.

"Our portfolio provides a unique combination of assets with exposure to multiple aspects of the mining cycle; the potential of blue-sky discovery at Shotgun Gold Project and important partnerships with industry leaders Like Ganfeng Lithium, McEwen Mining and Lundin Mining as operators on the projects that have the potential to generate royalty cashflows that will contribute significant value for our shareholders.

"Last year we repaid our investment loan in full, and our Company has no debt. We believe that the recent market prices of our Shares do not properly reflect the underlying value of the Shares and the normal course issuer bid allows us to purchase Shares in the market to help increase the shareholder value for the shareholders.

"We are very pleased that the Mariana Lithium Project is progressing smoothly towards expected commercial production in 2024. Representatives of Ganfeng Lithium confirmed to the Governor of Salta Gustavo Sáenz that the Mariana Project, on which construction began in June 2022, will start producing, in 2024, an estimated 20 thousand tons per year of lithium chloride. The Government of Salta has reported on Ganfeng Lithium's announcement that the operational phase of the Mariana Lithium Project began in January 2023. We are looking forward towards our first NSR royalty cash flow payments from the Mariana Lithium Project.

"TNR does not have to contribute any capital for the development of the Mariana Lithium Project, the Los Azules Copper Project or the Josemaria Project. The essence of our business model is to have industry leaders like Ganfeng Lithium as operators on the projects that will potentially generate royalty cashflows to contribute significant value for our shareholders."

Shotgun Gold Project - Alaska

The Shotgun Gold Project is an advanced-stage exploration prospect in southwestern Alaska. The Company's exploration field program in 2022-2023 at the Shotgun and Winchester prospects, located in the Taylor Mountain Quadrangle, Alaska, investigated the geochemical anomalies generated by the 1998 Novagold Resources soil surveys and the geophysical targets indicated by anomalies from the SJ Geophysics 2011 and 2012 EM surveys.

"The Company's strategy with the Shotgun Gold Project is to attract a partnership with a major gold mining company. TNR Gold has successfully consolidated and updated its mining claims in Alaska and is actively introducing the project to interested parties," commented Kirill Klip. "We may be at the beginning of a great discovery. There is a clear path on how to move this prospective project forward using the geological and geophysical research currently available to target drilling to expand the resource. The next step is to acquire a partner that shares our vision and recognizes the growth potential and value to be added to the Shotgun Gold Project over time. The latest exploration program allows us to provide additional information on TNR's Shotgun Gold Project for our potential strategic partners."

About the Shotgun Gold Project

TNR holds a 90% interest in the Shotgun Gold Project that is located 190 kilometres south of the Donlin Gold Project deposits within the Kuskokwim Gold Belt in southwestern Alaska. This area is emerging as a multi-million-ounce gold district. The Shotgun property includes a number of prospects, including Shotgun Ridge and nearby Winchester. The Donlin Gold Project is an intrusion-associated system and represents one of the largest undeveloped gold deposits in the world. The Company believes that there are several key similarities between prospects on the Shotgun property and that of the Donlin Gold Project deposits as well as other important intrusion-associated deposits worldwide.

The Company is targeting a large tonnage porphyry system at Shotgun Ridge. Structural repeats, as interpreted from airborne magnetic data and ground geophysical surveys, provide TNR with encouraging targets for future drill testing.

Detailed information about the inferred mineral resource estimate is included in the technical report titled, "Technical Report on the Shotgun Gold Project, Southwest Alaska", dated May 27, 2013 that can be found on the TNR Gold website at www.tnrgoldcorp.com or on SEDAR at www.sedarplus.ca.

Los Azules Copper, Gold and Silver NSR Royalty Holding

On December 18, 2023, TNR Gold announced that, McEwen Mining Inc. provided an update on the Los Azules Copper Project in San Juan, Argentina. TNR holds a 0.4% NSR Royalty (of which 0.04% of the 0.4% NSR Royalty is held on behalf of a shareholder) on the Los Azules Copper Project. The Los Azules Copper Project is held by McEwen Copper Inc., a subsidiary of McEwen Mining.

The news release issued on December 12, 2023, by McEwen Mining, stated:

"McEwen Copper

"Eighteen drill rigs are currently on site at Los Azules and over 18,000 meters of drilling have already been completed, representing more than one-third of the planned meters for this season's campaign.

"Recently, key management and directors from McEwen Mining and McEwen Copper visited the project to review the progress made towards delivery of the feasibility study for the future Los Azules Mine. Michael Meding, Vice President and General Manager of McEwen Copper, commented: 'We are very pleased with the progress at Los Azules since 2021, when McEwen Copper was created to drive forward the development of one of the world's largest undeveloped copper projects. Our vision is to develop Los Azules as a model for the future of mining."

"Technical Information

"The technical content of this news release related to financial results, mining and development projects has been reviewed and approved by William (Bill) Shaver, P.Eng., COO of McEwen Mining and a Qualified Person as defined by SEC S-K 1300 and the Canadian Securities Administrators National Instrument 43-101 "Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects."

The news release issued by McEwen Mining on February 12, 2024, stated:

"McEwen Copper

Twenty drill rigs are currently on site at Los Azules and over 36,000 meters (118,000 ft) of drilling have been completed so far this season, to advance all areas that contribute to the upcoming Feasibility Study (FS), which is expected to be published in Q1 2025.

At the Los Azules Project, we've made significant progress. Our drilling program is over halfway complete, with 36,000 meters drilled out of the 55,000 planned for our comprehensive feasibility study. The work necessary for the completion of the feasibility study includes mineral resource estimation, metallurgical testing, equipment selection, final completion and cost estimation of design for the mine and our facilities. Additionally, we will work to advance our power and road infrastructure plans and establish preliminary site-wide water balance including pit dewatering.

On the ground, we've made tangible progress with the drilling program, construction of our winter camp and improvements to the exploration road facilitating year-round operations. We're also on track with environmental permitting, reflecting our commitment to responsible development.

Financially, we've been diligent in protecting our treasury. The majority of our funds have been invested in depository receipts of foreign and major Argentinean corporations, to shield us from devaluation. This strategic move ensures that the Los Azules project's financial backbone stays robust in supporting our project development.

"We are adapting to a changing environment in Argentina, recognizing the importance of current political and economic reforms for the future stability and growth of the nation. Mining is a vital component of Argentina's economy and, under the right conditions, one that is poised to grow significantly and support the country's economic recovery," said Michael Meding, VP of McEwen Copper and General Manager of the Los Azules Project."
