(TSXV: TNR) (“TNR”, “TNR Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, further to the Company’s news release dated October 4, 2021, McEwen Copper Inc. (“McEwen Copper”) is advancing its work program at the Los Azules copper project in Argentina.

The news release issued by McEwen Mining Inc. on November 3, 2021, stated:
“Activity at McEwen Copper’s Los Azules project is moving ahead quickly. The exploration road has been reopened, three work camp sites have been established, an expanded local labor force and preparations are underway for starting a 10-drill, 174,000-foot (53,000 m) drilling program. Drilling will focus on conversion of Inferred mineral resources to the Indicated category, as well as deeper exploration targets, where drilling ended in strong copper mineralization. Drills are expected to turn towards the end of November and continue through the end of Q2 2022.
Construction of the new access road for providing the necessary year-round access to the project is advancing as planned. As part of our ongoing involvement with local communities and businesses, local contractors are being sourced for the construction.
The contract for delivery of a pre-feasibility study (PFS) is at the tender stage and work is expected to begin in Q4. Whittle Consulting has been engaged to assist in identifying opportunities to improve the project that will be investigated during the PFS preparation.”
“We are very pleased to see this very exciting and significant development for the Los Azules Copper Project and continued support by Rob McEwen of the newly created McEwen Copper,” stated Kirill Klip, TNR’s Executive Chair. “It’s very encouraging to see a start of a major 10-drill, 53,000-metre drilling program on this giant copper, gold and silver project. The personal commitment from Rob McEwen and his investment of US$40 million enables the rapid advancement for this major deposit to this new phase of development in an appropriate corporate structure which will allow financing and further stages of development of the Los Azules Copper Project.
TNR Gold holds a 0.4% NSR royalty on the entire Los Azules Copper Project (TNR holds a 0.04% on behalf of a shareholder). TNR Gold does not have to contribute any capital for the development of Los Azules. The essence of our business model is to have industry leaders like McEwen Mining as operators on the projects that will potentially generate royalty cashflows to contribute significant value for our shareholders.”
