Vancouver, B.C., Canada – June 19, 2023 – Deep-South Resources Inc. (“Deep-South” or the Company) (TSX-V: DSM) announces that since the verdict ordering the Ministry of Mines and Energy of Namibia (“Ministry”) to re-open the renewal application procedure of 2021, the Haib Copper Licence EPL 3140 has been reinstated by the Ministry with the status “pending renewal”.
The application procedure is well advanced and we expect a final decision in the coming weeks. As the licence has been reinstated, pending renewal on the Mining Cadastre of the Ministry, officials of the Ministry have invited the Company to resume exploration work at any time. However, Management considers it is prudent to await the renewal decision before resuming work.
Pierre Leveille, President & CEO of Deep-South stated: “We are confident that the licence will be renewed in a timely manner. We have visited the site last week in order to prepare resumption of exploration and to be ready to start the work quickly when the final decision will be rendered“.
