Pentwater Capital Management LP (” Pentwater “), the largest minority shareholder of Turquoise Hill Resources Ltd. (” Turquoise Hill ” or the ” Company “) (TSX:TRQ) (NYSE:TRQ), has delivered the attached letter to the Turquoise Hill Independent Directors:
Dear Independent Directors:
Would you agree to sell your house to your corrupt banker for less than the equivalent of one and a half years of rental income? That is what Rio Tinto is asking you to do.
Rio has offered to purchase the shares of Turquoise Hill it does not own for $2.65 billion. Based upon current gold prices of $1,945 per ounce and current copper prices of $4.65 per pound, we believe that Turquoise Hill will generate over $17 billion of after-tax free cash flow between 2025 and 2030 1 :
Free Cash Flow
Minority Shareholder Free Cash Flow
$1.732 billion
$844 million
$1.772 billion
$868 million
$2.944 billion
$1.442 billion
$4.070 billion
$1.994 billion
$3.713 billion
$1.819 billion
$2.895 billion
$1.418 billion
This means that Rio’s current offer to the Board of Turquoise Hill is 32% of the amount of free cash flow that Turquoise Hill will generate between 2025 and 2030. Rio’s offer is also equivalent to less than 17 months of after-tax free cash flow between 2028 and 2029 for an asset that has a 70 year mine life.
In Pentwater’s opinion, the only reason that Turquoise Hill’s share price has traded below Rio’s offer price is because Rio has consistently taken actions to harm Turquoise Hill minority shareholders over the past decade. It was just two months ago that Rio forced Turquoise Hill to take a $2.4 billion debt write-down for reparations to the government of Mongolia as a result of Rio’s intentional concealment of cost overruns and schedule delays. At the same time, Rio forced Turquoise Hill to agree to raise $650 million of equity when debt could have easily been raised to avoid any equity dilution.
Rio’s oppressive actions have all been taken with the goal of enriching itself to the detriment of Turquoise Hill minority shareholders. That is why Canaccord Genuity wrote this week that “[w]e view this C$34.00/sh bid by RIO as an opportunistic low-ball offer post-de-risking the project… and ~12 months out from first production.”
However, now Rio’s scheme is apparent for all shareholders to see. Rio is in possession of non-public information, and it wants to use that non-public information to buy out Turquoise Hill at a fraction of the value of what the shares are worth. In Pentwater’s opinion, it is highly improbable that Rio will be successful at its current bid price and equally improbable that Turquoise Hill shares will ever fall back to the levels they traded at prior to Rio’s offer now that Rio’s true intentions are known.
Pentwater agrees with Sailingstone’s open letter from two days ago. Rio paid $63.70 per share for its existing stake in Turquoise Hill. If Rio believes that its current $26.90 proposal is, “compelling for Turquoise Hill shareholders,” Pentwater would be pleased to purchase part of Rio Tinto’s stake in Turquoise Hill for that price.
Kindest Regards,
Matthew C. Halbower
Chief Executive Officer
Pentwater Capital Management
1 These figures are based upon OT’s most recent Technical Report combined with recent management guidance.  If Turquoise Hill disagrees with these projections, we believe that Turquoise Hill should state what it believes after tax free cash flow will be between 2022 and 2035 while disclosing its copper and gold price assumptions.

PolyMet Mining Corp. (TSX: POM) (NYSE American: PLM) today reports it has filed its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2021, and provides a first quarter 2022 business update.
“Soaring global demand for clean energy- and electric vehicle-dependent metals such as copper, nickel, and cobalt, and supply chain realities laid bare by recent events in Eastern Europe make us keenly aware of our obligation to produce these critical minerals in Minnesota responsibly and as quickly as possible,” said Jon Cherry, chairman, president and CEO. “We urge our government to embrace safe mining of these critical natural resources to expand clean energy and decarbonization efforts in the U.S.”
PolyMet made considerable progress in 2021 as several significant legal challenges by opponents were resolved or significantly narrowed in scope, Cherry said. He cited as two examples a ruling by the state Supreme Court in early 2021 that restored PolyMet’s dam safety permits and the reactivation of the air permit in December by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency after it fulfilled the requirements of a Minnesota Court of Appeals ruling.
Progress has continued in 2022 as the Minnesota Court of Appeals in January affirmed nearly all aspects of the company’s water discharge permit for the NorthMet Project. Importantly, the court found that water quality standards of the State of Minnesota and Fond du Lac Band of the Lake Superior Chippewa will not be violated as a result of the NorthMet Project.
The water discharge permit is one of only three permits that remain on hold pending additional process, which is anticipated to be largely addressed this year. These are:
Federal wetlands (Section 404) permit – a 401a2 hearing by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is planned in early May to determine if the project “will affect” water quality within the reservation boundaries of the Fond du Lac Band. The State of Minnesota concluded during environmental review and permitting that the project does not affect water quality before reaching the reservation, which is 110 river miles downstream;
Permit to Mine – a contested case hearing by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources on the effectiveness of bentonite clay at the tailings impoundment is anticipated in the second or third quarter of this year. Several preliminary hearings already have been held; and
Water discharge (NPDES/SDS) permit – the Minnesota Court of Appeals ruled that the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency must consider whether any discharges are the “functional equivalent” of a direct surface water discharge. The ruling stems from a U.S. Supreme Court ruling unrelated to PolyMet and issued more than a year after PolyMet’s permit was issued. This functional-equivalence analysis, known as the “Maui” test, is expected to be completed this year and to affirm earlier conclusions.

Altiplano Metals Inc. (TSXV: APN) (WKN: A2JNFG) (“Altiplano” or the “Company”) is pleased to report on the February 2022 results from the Farellon Copper-Gold (Cu-Au) mine located near La Serena, Chile.
Approximately 3,720 tonnes in total of mineralized copper-gold material was extracted at Farellon and 2,303 tonnes were processed during the month of February. This work represented a 4% improvement over the January output of 3,580 tonnes and a 4.5% improvement over the 2,110 tonnes processed in January. The grade in February improved to 2.17% for the month compared to the January grade of 2.05%. The February copper grade is recorded as the highest monthly grade recovered from Farellon since operations began in Q1 2018. Grade improvements in the last few months are noticeable and attributed to accessing higher grade material in the lower levels of the NE sections of the mine at the 368 m and 360 m levels.
Revenue generated in February was approximately US$327,436 after processing costs, representing an 18% improvement over January’s revenue of $277,845. Revenue continues to improve as a result of higher grade and increased copper sales. At February month end, an additional 250 tonnes were stockpiled at site where the revenue will be credited to the following months after processing has been completed. In addition, 1,450 tonnes of low-grade copper/high grade iron are stockpiled at site for processing at El Peñón site when that facility is completed.
CEO Alastair McIntyre commented, “Productivity improvements at Farellon are generating positive returns in improving grade and increased production. We are pleased to see higher grades, especially at depth, which drives increased revenues and supports our plans for continuing the development at Farellon to deeper levels.”

This release includes certain statements that may be deemed “forward-looking statements”. All statements in this release, other than statements of historical facts, that address exploration drilling, exploitation activities and events or developments that the Company expects are forward-looking statements. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify any historical estimates as current mineral resources or mineral reserves and the issuer is not treating the historical estimates as current mineral resources or mineral reserves. The Farellon mine was previously in production dating back to the 1970’s with a reported historical production (to a depth of 70 m) yielding approximately 300,000 tonnes at an average grade of 2.5% copper and 0.5g/t gold. This material was processed locally and sold to ENAMI. Altiplano is relying upon past production records, underground sampling and related activities and current diamond drilling to estimate grade and widths of the mineralization to reactivate production. The decision to commence production on the Farellon deposit is not based on a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability and there is increased uncertainty and economic and technical risks of failure associated with any production decision. Although the Company believes the expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, such statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements include market prices, exploitation and exploration successes, continuity of mineralization, uncertainties related to the ability to obtain necessary permits, licenses and title and delays due to third party opposition, changes in government policies regarding mining and natural resource exploration and exploitation, and continued availability of capital and financing, and general economic, market or business conditions. Investors are cautioned that any such statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements.

Usha Resources Ltd. (“USHA” or the “Company”) (TSXV:USHA)(OTCQB:USHAF) is pleased to announce that it has executed a drilling contract for its upcoming maiden drill program at the Lost Basin Gold-Copper Project located in Mohave County, Arizona. The Company intends on completing a reconnaissance visit by its personnel and the drilling contractor in the coming weeks to review drill sites after which it will commence with the construction of access roads and drill pads in preparation for drilling
The Company has elected to proceed with diamond core drilling for its maiden program to better understand the lithological and structural data at the Site. The Company plans to drill 1,500 metres over two phases with the results of the maiden program being used to delineate a larger follow-up drill campaign.
The first phase of the drilling program will be part of a larger work program that will include trenching, soil sampling, chip sampling, and further prospecting that is anticipated to be completed over approximately 40 days.
The Company’s program will focus on the following key mineralized sections on the property:
“Advancing the gold and copper stories at Lost Basin is a primary objective of ours as we move into 2022 and we are extremely excited to continue our exploration at the property,” stated Deepak Varshney, CEO of USHA. “The property is a unique exploration and development opportunity in a top-tier mining jurisdiction that has largely escaped systematic modern exploration. Lost Basin offers a number of compelling attributes that you like to see prior to drilling – favourable geology, strong assays from initial sampling, and participation in what is becoming a very active exploration camp. This program is going to jumpstart what will be a very active year for us across a portfolio that includes copper, nickel, cobalt and gold – it’s going to be a busy and exciting year!”
