Ministry of mines and energy of Namibia has failed filing its defense on February 14, 2022
Vancouver, B.C., Canada – March 2, 2022 – Deep-South Resources Inc. ("Deep-South" or “the Company") (TSX-V: DSM) reports that the legal counsel of the Ministry of Mines and Energy of Namibia (“Ministry”) have failed to file their defense affidavit as ordered by the High Court of Namibia on November 25, 2021. The Ministry’s counsels stated that they have discovered new documents, which are not part of the record of proceedings. The Ministry’s counsel has requested an extension to file those documents. The legal counsel has filed a joint status report with the court on February 28, 2022. Deep South’s legal counsel recorded in this status report that the Ministry’s counsel previously indicated that a complete record had been filed. Since the beginning of the procedures, the Ministry has failed providing any evidence supporting the decision of the Minister to not renew the Haib Copper licence EPL 3140.
Deep-South’s legal counsel vigorously oppose the extension request and requested that the judge ensure a just and speedy determination of the case.
The Court will hold another hearing on March 3, 2022. The latest request of the Ministry will be considered at that hearing.
The Company will provide regular updates in this regard and any other matter concerning this situation.
