- Fundamental Research Publishes Updated Analyst Report on New Age Metals New Age Metals (NAM) owns 100% of the River Valley Platinum Group Metals (PGM) Project, which is North America’s largest undeveloped primary PGM Project located 100 kilometers from the Sudbury Metallurgical Complex, Ontario, Canada. Primary PGM deposits are rare outside of South Africa and Russia. see Ellis Martin April 16th interview.
- River Valley is the largest undeveloped primary PGM resource in North America, with 4.6 Moz PdEq in Measured Plus Indicated including an additional 2.6 Moz PdEq in Inferred. The River Valley PGM Project has excellent infrastructure and is within 100 kilometers of the Sudbury Metallurgical Complex. The project is 100% owned by New Age Metals (see news releases dated March 21st, 2018 and April 11th, 2018).
- Fundamental Research Corp, updated analyst report on New Age Metals, including comments on updated resource estimate at River Valley and exploring opportunities in Alaska. (see FRC Report here or on www.newagemetals.com/www.researchfrc.com)
- Management’s objective for River Valley is to develop a series of open pits (bulk mining) over the 16 kilometers of mineralization, concentrate on site, and ship the concentrates to the long-established Sudbury Metallurgical Complex.
- Alaska: On April 18th,/April 4th, 2018, NAM announced the right to purchase 100% of the Genesis PGM Project, NAM’s first Alaskan PGM acquisition related to the April 4/18th agreement. The Genesis PGM Project is a road accessible, under explored, highly prospective, multi-prospect drill ready Pd-Pt-Ni-Cu property.
- Lithium Division: As field manager, NAM is currently preparing for the spring/summer exploration program where a minimum of $500,000 is to be expended in 2018 on the company’s five Lithium projects in Manitoba (see news release dated January 15th, and February 22nd, 2018). The 2018 budget will allow for 2 out of the 3 drill ready projects to be drilled.
- These new age metals, Lithium, PGM’s and Rare Metals, have robust macro trends with surging demands and limited supply, and will fuel the demand for energy storage and other core 21st Century Technologies.
- Lithium has an ever-increasing demand for batteries in cellphones, laptops, electric cars, solar storage, wireless charging and renewable energy products.

CURRENT MARKET AWARENESS PROGRAM
Conferences thus far this year, in early February our President Trevor Richardson was in South Africa attending 3 conferences with a full schedule, including two 1-2-1 style conferences with over 25 pre-booked meetings with mine finance companies, major mine companies, institutions, stock brokers, and high net worth individuals. In mid-February, Harry Barr (CEO) and Paul Poggione (Corporate Development), had a minimum of 25 pre-booked meetings at the Capital Event Conference in Whistler to meet new and existing investors, stockbrokers and institutions. In March, the entire New Age Metals team assembled in Toronto. We attended the RAI$E Capital 1-2-1 event, where at least 25 different groups were presented NAM’s corporate mandate via our slide deck. On the Saturday before the Prospectors and Developers Association Convention (PDAC), we had various meetings at the Metals Investor Forum Conference. Our main event, the PDAC in Toronto, the world’s largest mining convention, is where our company hosted a small hospitality room that doubled as a boardroom and over 40 meetings were completed to continue our New Age Metals market awareness program. Several meetings were held with prospectors, junior mining companies, and major mining companies, to advance our objectives. Our President, Trevor Richardson was asked to speak in two packed rooms, one for the Canada-China Investment Conference and the second in the Ontario Pavilion, both talks were focused on advanced stage mineral projects in Ontario. Management of NAM believes that the 2018 PDAC was one of the best attended and most positive mining conferences in recent years. From April 19th to April 22nd, Harry Barr and Trevor Richardson were in Scottsdale, Arizona to attend the Capital Events Arizona 1-2-1 Conference where the team had 18 meetings with a mixture of European and US investors who were institutional, family offices, and registered brokers.
