Minto Receives First Revenue
London, United Kingdom - Pembridge Resources plc (LSE: PERE) ("Pembridge" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that further to the restart of operations announced on 15 October 2019, pursuant to the offtake agreement between Sumitomo Canada Limited ("Sumitomo") and Minto Explorations Ltd ("Minto") dated 22 July 2019 (the "Offtake Agreement"), Minto has received a 90% provisional payment for the copper concentrate ("Advanced Payment") produced for the month of October 2019 ("First Revenue").
· 1,734 dry metric tonnes of concentrate was produced during October 2019
· First Revenue received by Minto of US$3.4m from Sumitomo
· Sales includes content for copper, gold and silver in concentrate
· Revenue from future provisional payments will continue to be received monthly per the terms of the Offtake Agreement
Under the terms of the Offtake Agreement, an Advanced Payment has been made by Sumitomo to Minto for 90% of the estimated value of concentrate produced at the Minto mine during the month of October 2019. 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. The Final Invoice will consist of the remaining 10%, plus or minus any commodity price changes to the Advanced Payment made, less accrued interest. Transportation and shipping of the copper concentrate is expected to commence in early Q1 2020.
In addition to the copper revenue, the Advance Payment includes precious metals credits and therefore Minto will receive 90% of the revenue from the copper, gold and silver due under the terms of the Offtake Agreement.

"We expect Minto's revenue to grow steadily as Minto progresses through its ramps up phase.
