Minto Operation Update for Q2 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 for the second quarter of 2020.

Highlights

·    6,820 wet metric tonnes (Q1: 6,975 wet metric tonnes) of concentrate was produced during the second quarter of 2020

·    Payments of US$9.8m received by Minto from Sumitomo (Q1: US$18.7m, of which US$5.4m related to December 2019 production)

·    Pricing of 90% of the cargo shipped to Japan in April 2020 is now fixed at $2.657 per pound for copper, thus ensuring that all cash advances received already from Sumitomo during 2019 and Q1 2020 and relating to the April cargo shipment are fully covered by the final revenue to be received for the cargo

·    Next shipment to Japan is planned before the end of Q3 2020, based on current production levels

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

"I am pleased that Minto's team has managed to maintain operations and production during Q2 in line with Q1 production.  Minto has managed effectively the difficulties arising from the Covid 19 virus and is set to grow its operations in the second half of this year, as the world economy starts to recover.  Although the quarantine restrictions have affected 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."

ENDS
