Perpetua Resources Welcomes Value-Oriented Kopernik as New Shareholder
BOISE, ID, June 6, 2022 /CNW/ – Perpetua Resources Corp. (Nasdaq: PPTA) (TSX: PPTA) (“Perpetua Resources” or “Perpetua” or the “Company”) welcomes Kopernik Global Investors LLC (“Kopernik”) as a new shareholder following a recent market purchase. Kopernik is a global, value-oriented investor with a proven track record of successful investments, including in the metals and mining space.
“We are excited to welcome Kopernik as a shareholder,” said Laurel Sayer, President & CEO of Perpetua Resources. “Perpetua shares are currently trading at a significant discount to the Stibnite Gold Project’s value and this has been recognized. We believe this investment further supports our vision and superior value proposition.”
Perpetua Resources’ vision is to provide the U.S. with a domestic source of the critical mineral antimony, develop one of the largest and highest-grade open pit gold mines in the country and restore an abandoned brownfields site. The Stibnite Gold Project is currently progressing into the later stages of the permitting process, and the Company anticipates the release of a Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (“SDEIS”) in the third quarter of 2022.
About Perpetua Resources and the Stibnite Gold Project
Perpetua Resources Corp., through its wholly owned subsidiaries, is focused on the exploration, site restoration and redevelopment of gold-antimony-silver deposits in the Stibnite-Yellow Pine district of central Idaho that are encompassed by the Stibnite Gold Project. The Project is one of the highest-grade, open pit gold deposits in the United States and is designed to apply a modern, responsible mining approach to restore an abandoned mine site and produce both gold and the only mined source of antimony in the United States. Further advancing Perpetua Resources’ ESG and sustainable mining goals, the Project will be powered by the lowest carbon emissions grid in the nation and a portion of the antimony produced from the Project will be supplied to Ambri, a US-based company commercializing a low-cost liquid metal battery essential for the low-carbon energy transition. In addition to the company’s commitments to transparency, accountability, environmental stewardship, safety and community engagement, Perpetua Resources adopted formal ESG commitments which can be found here.
