Deep-South commissions update of the Haib Copper PEA to reflect higher copper prices
Vancouver, B.C., Canada – December 2, 2020 – Deep-South Resources Inc. ("Deep-South" or “the Company") (TSX-V: DSM) annouces that in light of higher copper price expectations, Deep-South and METS Engineering Group (“METS”) have agreed to update the Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") on its Haib Copper Project in Namibia. The PEA from METS was published on May 20, 2020 and can be viewed on SEDAR or at: https://www.deepsouthresources.com/projects/technical-reports/
"Haib is certainly one of the world’s top undeveloped copper projects located in a favorable jurisdiction” stated Pierre Leveille, President & CEO of Deep-South. “Our existing PEA demonstrated robust economics even at a much lower copper price than the current spot price. For example, at a price of $3.00/lb copper, the after-tax NPV was US $ 957 million and the after tax IRR was 29.7%. We do expect materially improved economics to come from this refreshed PEA due very shortly. We endeavour to continue to refine and seek to improve the attractiveness of Haib through many initiatives that will be announced in 2021”
The updated PEA report will be available soon and will be communicated to our shareholders in due course.
