Vancouver, B.C. April 25th, 2023 — Ares Strategic Mining Inc. (“Ares” or the “Company”) (TSXV: ARS) (OTC:ARSMF) (FRA: N8I1), is very pleased to announce it has completed development and construction work on its Millard County rail spur, opening up the United States and North America for delivery of the Company’s future industrial products.
Ares has completed structural design, mechanical design, electrical design, stormwater lift station design, loading/unloading facility design, and design of spill containment. The track concept design submission and the final track design plan were submitted to Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) for review and received approval. Following approval track work was completed at the Company’s Lynndyl site, north of its new industrial site in Delta, Utah.

James Walker, President and CEO of the Company said, “The Company and its team are extremely pleased to have the rail spur work completed, we now have a less expensive way of shipping large orders anywhere in North America. Union Pacific can transport any quantity of product the company is able to produce, with regular pickups of railcars available, and a great track record of timely delivery. Combined with our new industrial site and the processing facility currently under build, we are establishing an efficient and streamlined future operation.”
In 2018 the U.S. government classified fluorspar as a Critical Mineral, “deemed critical to U.S. national security and the economy”. Fluorspar remains the only non-metallic Critical Mineral which is 100% imported in the entire country. Fluorspar’s classification as a Critical Mineral in the United States translates to a faster permitting period, enabling mining operations to initiate more quickly than operations for conventional minerals.

DISCLOSURE AND FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS:
Companies typically rely on comprehensive feasibility reports on mineral reserve estimates to reduce the risks and uncertainties associated with a production decision. Historically, situations where the issuer decides to put a mineral project into production without first establishing mineral reserves supported by a technical report and completing a feasibility study have a higher risk of economic or technical failure, though some industrial mineral ventures are relatively simple operations with low levels of investment and risk, where the operating entity has determined that a formal prefeasibility or feasibility study in conformance with NI 43-101 and 43-101 CP is not required for a production decision. Based on historical engineering work, geological reports, historical production data and current engineering work completed or in the process by Ares, the Company intends to move forward with the development of its Utah asset.
