West High Yield (W.H.Y.) Resources Ltd. provides critical minerals permit application update and invites investors and interested parties to Radius Research webinar

CALGARY, ALBERTA – January 15, 2024 – West High Yield (W.H.Y.) Resources Ltd. (“West High Yield” or the “Company“) (TSXV:WHY) is pleased to provide an update on the progress of its permit application for its Record Ridge Industrial Mineral Mine (“RRIMM” or the “Project“) and to invite investors and other interested parties to join an upcoming interview with Market Radius Research.

Following the Company’s October 25, 2023 press release announcing the submission of the RRIMM amended permit application (the “Amended Permit Application“), the Company participated in the next step of the Application by meeting with the Mine Development Review Committee (“MDRC“) committee on December 6, 2023. At this meeting, the Company provided MDRS with an update and answered questions regarding the Amended Permit Application and a corresponding socio-economic report thereon. The MDRC committee chair, after having received the Company’s submissions at the December 8, 2023 meeting, requested that the MDRC provide technical comments to the Company relative to the Amended Permit Application by January 15, 2024. The Company, in conjunction with its consultants, will address the comments it receives from the MDRC before its next scheduled meeting with the MDRC set for February 14, 2024. The Company anticipates further feedback and details at this February 14, 2024 meeting pertaining to the next steps in the technical review process of the Amended Permit Application.

As previously communicated, the Company outlined numerous proposed Project mitigation strategies to address concerns and interests that had been expressed through its public engagement efforts, announced by the Company in a press release dated July 4, 2023. The positive changes to the Project were incorporated into the Amended Permit Application with the utmost consideration for the environment, the community, and all associated stakeholders. West High Yield eagerly anticipates the next phase of the MDRC technical review process while it awaits feedback from the MDRC committee members. The Company continues to plan for RRIM mine site construction development and mining during 2024.
