Aston Bay Holdings Ltd. (TSX.V: BAY) (OTCQB: ATBHF) and JV Partner Obtain Key Financing, Move Forward with Storm Copper Project Development

  • American West Metals Limited entered into binding agreement with Australian-based Taurus Mining Royalty Fund L.P.
  • The royalty funding supports the advancement of the Storm Copper Project
  • The investment from Taurus is a strong endorsement of the potential at Storm

Aston Bay Holdings (TSX.V: BAY) (OTCQB: ATBHF), a publicly traded mineral exploration company, and its joint venture partner, American West Metals Limited, are making significant plans to move forward on development of the Storm Copper Project, located in Nunavut, Canada. The plans follow the announcement that American West secured nondilutive financing from a leading royalty fund to support exploration and development at Storm (https://ibn.fm/L5Bn2).

According to the announcement, American West entered into a binding agreement with Australian-based Taurus Mining Royalty Fund L.P. The agreement calls for Taurus to provide up to $12.5 million under a royalty package for the Storm Copper Project. In return, Taurus receives a new 0.95% gross override royalty from all production at the project.

“We are very pleased to have secured royalty funding to support the advancement of the Storm Copper Project,” said Dave O’Neill, managing director of American West Metals. “The royalty financing provides American West with a substantial quantum of funds on terms that are considerably more attractive and less dilutionary than alternative equity funding.

“The investment from Taurus is a strong endorsement of the potential at Storm and recognizes the strong foundations for growth established by the exploration and resource delineation work conducted by American West to date,” O’Neill continued. “The company is now well positioned to accelerate the 2024 and 2025 work programs at Storm, with the 2024 summer drilling program now in full swing. This puts American West in a strong position to grow shareholder wealth as the demand outlook for copper reaches an all-time high.”

AmericanWest plans to use the funds to accelerate the Storm 2024 resource expansion and exploration programs. Funds will also be used to bring forward the logistics for the 2025 field activities and expedite the completion of environmental, social and governance (“ESG”); mining; and development studies. Aston Bay will receive 20% of the funding with no use-of-proceeds restriction.

“This is an excellent development for the Storm Project and Aston Bay,” said Thomas Ullrich, Aston Bay CEO. “The royalty financing provides significant funding and is structured to promote rapid advancement of the Storm Copper Project for our partner American West. At the same time, it provides a significant amount of nondilutive funds for Aston Bay to advance our other critical minerals and gold exploration projects in Nunavut and Virginia.”

Aston Bay conducts exploration through safe, socially and environmentally responsible and sustainable work practices. The company embeds core values of health and safety throughout its operations by adhering to strict health and safety standards and practices that meet or exceed industry standards and government codes and regulations.

Aston Bay is a publicly traded mineral exploration company exploring for high-grade critical and precious metal deposits in Nunavut, Canada, and the state of Virginia. The company is led by CEO Thomas Ullrich with exploration in Virginia directed by the company’s advisor, Don Taylor, the 2018 Thayer Lindsley Award winner for his discovery of the Taylor Pb-Zn-Ag Deposit in Arizona. The company is currently exploring the Storm Copper and Epworth Properties in Nunavut and the high-grade Buckingham Gold Vein in central Virginia. The company is also in advanced stages of negotiation on other lands with high-grade critical metals potential in North America.
