Albemarle Corporation announces redemption of all outstanding 4.150% bonds due in 2024

Additional sampling of the DDH FL-20-11 (drilled in the first expedition) increased the width of the previously fired mineral period by 4 m, expanding the mineral area to 0.15% with more than 64.2 m Including 0.35% Cu above 15.6 M and 1.08% Cu and 1.63 g/ton Ag over 2.6 M.

The FL-20-11 drill hole is located approx 1800 m Northwest along the same structure as Lake Var discovery area Where surface sampling results in copper grades up to 22% More than 0.7 meters, and the results of drilling in the first stage resulted in objections 0.19% Cu and 0.34 g/ton Ag more than 33.6 M Including 1.11% Cu and 1.33 g/ton Ag more than 3.1 M (FL-20-03). The discovery area continues to be interrupted by mafic dams and the company continues to design dams to better understand the structure that controls mineralization and to avoid being hit in future drilling within mineralized areas.

drilling holes FL-21-13 & 14 It was drilled near hole FL-20-11 (0.15% with more than 64.2 m) and they succeeded in crossing granodiorite with the advanced Argyle modification that hosts up to 5% chalcopyrite locally. In addition, granodiorite includes a moderately phyllic (chl-ser), probiotic (qtz-epi-carb) and weakly potassium (kspar-alb-qtz) modification. The highlights of these holes include 0.25% with more than 3 m And 0.12% with more than 3 min holes 13 and 14, respectively.

FL-21-15 It was approximately 200 m of the eastern gradient of FL-20-11 and intersected again with the variable mineral chalcopyrite granodiorite containing up to 0.1% with more than 14 m.

FL-21-16 It was the deepest crater in the expedition and targeted a profound IP chargeability anomaly coinciding with the mineral surface samples. Anomalous copper mineralization was found throughout the crater, but more importantly an intersection with a major rock contact between granitic and metasedimental rocks at depth, which will be important when mapping units on the property.

FL-21-17 It was drilled 425 m below the central pond area and intersected mainly red granite with strong alteration of potassium and hematite with magnetite. Coarse red granite contains chalcopyrite and pyrite. Highlights include 0.16% with more than 6 m.

FL-21-18 Target airborne VLF anomalies along the strike in the detection area. Copper mineralization was minimal, but the hole intersected with a wet structure that could explain the anomaly.

FL-21-19 It was drilled below the discovery area at deeper depths than the first stage of drilling. Sulfide mineralization is seen primarily as diffuse blebian or pyrite in areas of strong deformation as well as chalcopyrite in areas of strong deformation, such as bubbles in silica-filled breccia or as threads in a quartz vein. Highlights include 0.13% with more than 23 m.

FL-21-20 It was a south step from hole 19 and designed to crisscross the high-grade copper in depth. Unfortunately, this hole encountered another wide gabbro at an unexpected depth and angle and the mineralized region was almost completely missing. Metal spacers include 0.12% copper over 1.4 m and 0.11% copper over 3 m.

In addition to copper mineralization, the expedition intersected with weakly anomalous uranium in FL-21-16 (21 ppm U over 10 m) and FL-21-19 (23.8 ppm U over 9 m).
