Minto Operation Update for Q1 2020

London, United Kingdom - Pembridge Resources plc (LSE: PERE) ("Pembridge" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the result of the Minto mine's operations in the first quarter of 2020.


·    6,975 wet metric tonnes (Q4 2019: 7,167 wet metric tonnes) of concentrate was produced during the first quarter of 2020

·    Payments of US$18.7m received by Minto from Sumitomo, of which US$5.4m related to December 2019 production (Q4 2019: US$7.1m)

·    14,142 wet metric tonnes of concentrate have been transported from the mine to the port at Skagway, ready to be shipped - this represents all concentrate production from Q4 2019 and Q1 2020.

The receipts of US$18.7m received by Minto from Sumitomo are an Advanced Payment to Minto for 90% of the estimated value of concentrate produced at the Minto mine. The final, balancing payment ("Final Invoice") will be paid on delivery to Japan, subject to the quotation period as per the terms of the Offtake Agreement, which is defined as third calendar month after month of arrival in Japan. The Final Invoice will consist of the remaining 10%, plus or minus any commodity price changes to the Advanced Payments made, less accrued interest.

Gati Al-Jebouri, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Pembridge said:

"These results are encouraging in the context of severe winter conditions and the impact of the COVID-19 virus on both the copper price and staff movements. Although the quarantine restrictions are affecting operations, they are a necessary measure that should enable the mine to continue operating safely as long as Yukon Government regulations permit this and the safety of all staff working at the mine is not compromised."
