Minto Operation Update for Q4 2020

London, United Kingdom - Pembridge Resources plc (LSE: PERE) ("Pembridge" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the result of the Minto Explorations Ltd. ("Minto") mine's operations for the fourth quarter of 2020.

Highlights

·    5,143 wet metric tonnes of concentrate were produced during the fourth quarter of 2020 (Q3: 5,707 wet metric tonnes).

·    Payments of US$17.5m received by Minto from Sumitomo during the fourth quarter of 2020 (Q3: US$18.4m)

·    24,646 wet metric tonnes of concentrate were produced during 2020 (2019: 7,167 wet metric tonnes).

·    Payments of US$64.3m received by Minto from Sumitomo during 2020 (2019: US$7.1m)

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

"This has been a quarter of continuing development at the Minto mine, having started active production from the Copper Keel area and development in Copper Keel West area.  The lower volume of concentrate produced in Q4 compared to Q3 was expected and is due to the processing of slightly lower grade ore in Q4 (1.07%) compared to Q3 (1.09%) which, as explained in the Q3 Operation Update, is due to including the final commercially viable tonnes from the Minto East ore body as well as the impact of start up production from Copper Keel area.  I am pleased to note that, for the whole of 2020, Minto produced 24,646 wet metric tonnes of concentrate and production is expected to be above this level for 2021."

ENDS
