    Answers from our CEO
    FYI: Quoted answers by CEO after permission of going public

    CEO: See my answers after each of you questions below:

    • EMP for EPL 3140
      The EMP for EPL 3140 was filled in august 2020 of your subsidary:
      the-eis.com/elibrary/sites/def…0Mineral%20EPL%203140.pdf
      SLR Consulting (Africa) (Pty) Ltd (SLR) has been appointed by Haib Minerals as the independent environmental assessment practitioners to undertake the EMP amendment process and submit the updated EMP to MET for their review and approval.

      Was it submitted to MET? Is it approved?
      Is that MET linked with the EPL conditions?
    Answer: The EMP was filed and approved. When approved it is an Environmental Clearance Certificate that is issued for 3 years. We have the ECC since February as it is a condition to start drilling. The Ministry of Mines has issued the drilling permit only on the condition that we have the ECC
    • Please comment the progress:
    • Drilling 20 holes for both metallurgical tests and geo-tech holes on three target area (Target Area 1, 2,and 3) with identified 10 sites (refer to Figure 1-3).
    • Excavation of 4 representative trenches, ±20 meters long and ±1 meter deep in the above mentioned target areas. (think buld samples permitted til Nov202
    • Extraction of water from the Orange River for drilling purposes (as per previous EMP).
    Answer: The information you have is different in the resulting ECCas we have changed the trenches for more drilling and it has been approved. If we drill it is because we have received all authorizations for the District Concilor, which is the relevant authority to approve water extraction for exploration. For mining it is a different authority.
    • As far as we know - some time ago - there was also a MDRL fr Haib applied.
      That would provide sharesholders much more safety than a conditioned EPL.
      Have you applied for a MDRL?
      What is the current status or the feedback of MET
    Answer: The MDRL application was filed by Teck Resources in January 2017 with the Ministry of Mines, not the MET, which has nothing to do with the granting of exploration or mining licences. At the time Teck was still holding 70% of the company holding the licence and they have done it without our consent. MDRL application was very bad news. A Mining Deposit Retention Licence is filed for up to 5 years when a company intends to carry no exploration or development work for a period of up to 5 years.
    We bought Teck 70% interest in May 2017 and immediately requested to apply for an extension of the EPL, which was approved by the Ministry. The MDRL filed by Teck was refused.


    • Some of us are confused because we didn't find a NR or sedar Filling of the very important old application extension til 21.04.2021.
      Is there a filling?
      And if not, why?
    Answer: We have never issued NR for an application of a licence renewal. However, you can understand that if the Ministry has refused the licence renewal it is because we have filed an application for renewal. I confirm, we have duly applied

    • Pilot Plant
      "The Company has also informed the Ministry that at the completion of the Feasibility Study, it is planning to build a pilot plant on site for an estimated cost of CAD$ 25.5 million"

      Our concern is that it will be difficult to communicate positively to investors. Which strategic Partner will invest before getting the detailed recovery results? That could lead to much dilution.
      Was this pilot plant part of the updated PEA?
      Do you think it will be obligatory ;-) to convince MET to get the EPL renewal
    Answer: The pilot plant is not part of the updated PEA but will be part of the Feasibility Study (FS). It is normal to inform the Ministry of Mines of the long term planning. Building a pilot plant after the FS is a normal step for any project in development and not
    planning it would be weak project management.. I am always fascinated to see how some investors are bothering with potential dilution that could only happen in a long time (2.5 years) and only if certain conditions are met. In this case, the FS needs to be positive and recommend the pilot plant. We are confident that if the FS is positive and recommend the pilot plant, our market cap will be higher and we will limit dilution. Also, the FS can be convincing for a strategic partner. So, there will be many conditions that will evolve and change over time that makes a discussion about dilution today quite speculative and useless

    We don’t have to convince MET (Ministry of Environment and Tourism) for the renewal of any exploration licences. We have to convince MME (Ministry of Mines and Energy)

    • Strategic Partner
      In my view Tech is not that partner.
      "Teck may determine to increase or decrease its holdings in Deep-South depending on market conditions and any other relevant factors »
    Answer: All large mining companies have the same statement about their investment in exploration companies. They want to protect themselves if some investors start to speculate about their intentions. At the moment, Africa is not the focus of Teck, so, they are a
    passive shareholder

    • Some of us are invested in Gold developers in thopia. They still have similar problems with the progress (finding local investors) and state 'requirements'.
    Answer: However, I have to say that the Mining Act is very clear and we do not foresee any problems with this in the future. The article of the Namibian you refer is stating 15% of mining licences. We are not at this stage yet as we have apply to renew and Exploration and Prospecting Licence. In our case, we already have a large shareholding with Namibians and we will have to see when we apply for the Mining lease if our Namibian shareholding is at or over 15%. Keep in mind that the company wa originally founded by Namibian shareholders.

    Regards

    Pierre

    deep-South Met with The Minister of Mines and Energy of Namibia on HAIB Copper Licence Renewal

    2021-06-23 15:19 ET - News Release

    (via TheNewswire)

    Vancouver, B.C. - TheNewswire - Canada – June 23, 2021 – Deep-South Resources Inc. ("Deep-South" or “the Company") (TSXV:DSM) (OTC:DSMTF) announces that today the representatives of the Company have met with the Minister of Mines and Energy of Namibia and other Officials of the Ministry of Mines and Energy (the “Ministry”) to voice the Company’s objections to the Minister’s refusal to renew its Haib Copper License. During the meeting, the Company’s representatives had the opportunity to inform the Minister of the work in progress on the project and discuss the reasons provided by the Minister for the refusal to renew the Exploration and Prospecting Licence (“EPL”) covering the Haib Copper project.

    As a result of the meeting, the Minister informed the Company that he will review all the information provided and reconsider his decision, which will be communicated to the Company in due course.

    John Akwenye, Chairman of Deep-South stated, "It was a good meeting with the Honorable Minister and we are hopeful that our representations to the Minister will reach a positive outcome”.

    As disclosed in our press release dated June 16, 2021, the Company has received notice from the Ministry informing the Company that its application for the renewal of its EPL has been denied citing the Company’s inability to advance the EPL to Pre-Feasibility and complete the proposed drilling program as planned.

    The Company maintains that the Ministry was kept well apprised, with no objection on their part, of a proposed change from the Pre-Feasibility study to upgraded Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) and commencement of a full feasibility study. Moreover, the Ministry issued all permits required for the drilling program and are well aware that Deep-South has completed the drilling program.


    In its application for renewal and subsequent representations made to the Ministry, the Company maintains that it has clearly demonstrated that it adequately meets the criteria under the Minerals (Prospecting and Mining) Act (Namibia) (the “Act”) to justify the renewal of its EPL. Accordingly, the Company is of the opinion that the refusal is unreasonable and unjustified.

    As a result of the Minister’s refusal to renew the Licence, the Company has suspended all work on site and hopes that the retrenchment of its employees will be avoided.

    The Company has demonstrated to the Minister that during the past two tenures (from April 2017 to April 2021), it has invested CAD$ 2 million ( N$ 23 million) with the completion of among other things, a NI 43-101 resource estimation, a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA), a large two tons sampling and bio heap-leach test, geological mapping, modelling and an upgraded PEA. Furthermore, in its renewal application, the Company has proposed a Feasibility Study program with a budget of

    CAD$ 7.1 million (N$ 80 million) .

    The program was underway with 3 drills and 42 employees on site. METS and CSIRO of Australia have also begun metallurgical tests, bio-leaching, High Pressure Grinding Roller tests and a flow sheet optimization program in two laboratories in Australia. Knight Piesold also has 4 scoping studies underway covering water usage, alternative power solutions and leach pad assessment and environmental path to the ESIA. The Company has also informed the Ministry that at the completion of the Feasibility Study, it is planning to build a pilot plant on site for an estimated cost of CAD$ 25.5 million ( N$ 286 million) .

    Looking forward for DSM to recover EPL 3140
    My evaluation of the situation is the the Minister of Mines and Energy based his decision only with the briefing of a tire kicker needing a claim of fame.
    When the Chairman met with the Minister, the Minister took a lot of notes.
    In these countries a Minister take his time before reversing a decision, simply to avoid looking stupid.

    On the other hand Namibia sent a strong signal to foreign companies ''spend a lot of money and when we are ready will give you a kick in the butt''. Countries doing that doesn't attrack international capital.

    The company up to this time has admitted no wrong doing and they've claimed that they've upheld their part of the agreement regarding their obligations on the Haib property. The company has said & maintained that the Namibian Gov't was advised & aprised of EVERY update and modification at every step of it's developmental process. In addition, mgmt has also indicated that Namibian Gov't, specifically the Dept of Mines & Energy, had in fact agreed to all the changes made and there were NO objections on their part. So unless the company has put out an official statement that they admitted to being negligent on their obligations on this property and i've missed it, i maintain my comments above.

    As for the Namibian Gov't side & all their accusations against Deep South, both can't be right and either one or the other here isn't being totally truth full. Unless the company is outright lying about what they've stated so far or have exaggerated their claims of what said or done, legally the company hasn't breached their contract with the Namibian Gov't ....yet. What is in question though, is whether the company has all these contractual modifications, claims and subsequent Gov't agreement on a legally binding document TO PROVE what they've said. Usually simple modifications like whether technicalties as a PFS, FS or PEA are to be done and what is prioritized is inconsequential are determined by the operator NOT the country's Gov't. The only hand or say the Gov't has in this, is whether to approve or not the PEA.

    In the end, it should really be up to the company to decide how this process should flow as they are the best judge of what needs to be done to bring projects successfully along to eventual full development. This is how it works in EVERY part of the wolrd and it usually flow through quite easily WITHOUT any complications. BUT in Africa, especially Sub-Saharan, these simple processes become very complicated & in a grey area for reasons i don't want to be into right now. Because there's a lot to be said there and iv'e stated a few in my previous posts here. Even the Chinese & Middle East who are difficult to deal with and are harsh places to operate in don't pull off sh*t like this.

    Anyway, until the company officially responds to the Gov'ts decision with something more concrete & meaningful besides the "we didn’t do anything wrong" schtick, this is going to remain in limbo for quite a while. If i were managing this situation, i would advise the company to try and resolve as quickly as possible, by either forcing the Namibian Gov't to abide by their contract on the property OR by bringing the matter to the International courts ASAP. The longer this drags on without ANY actions on the company's part or they keep staying silent, the worse it will look for them and it will be.
