May 14, 2024

THETFORD MINES, QUEBEC, May 14, 2024 – Dundee Sustainable Technologies Inc. (“DST” or the “Corporation”) (CSE: DST) is pleased to announce significant progress in its participation in the project aimed at transforming the treatment of electronic waste material ("e-waste").

Following the initial announcement on June 23, 2023, DST has fulfilled its cash and in-kind contribution commitment in the newly formed company, now officially named Enim Technologies Inc. (“Enim”). This achievement was a crucial step forward in the objective to deploy DST’s proprietary gold extraction CLEVR Process™ (the “CLEVR Process”) for the sustainable management of e-waste.

The Enim plant, situated in Thetford Mines at DST's Technical facilities, began operating in April 2024, marking the commencement of the operating phase of the project. The primary objective of this phase is to demonstrate the integrated hydrometallurgical treatment of electronic material, with a focus on the recovery of gold, copper, silver, and palladium.

“The commencement of the Enim operations represents a significant milestone not only for DST but also for the broader industry seeking sustainable solutions for e-waste management,” remarked Mr. Jean-Philippe Mai, President and CEO of DST. “With the support of our dedicated team and strategic partners, we are poised to drive meaningful change and create lasting value for stakeholders and the environment alike.”

DST also announces that its Board of Directors has approved the granting of options for 3,650,000 subordinate voting shares of the Corporation to directors and officers (the “Options”). The Options are exercisable at $0.13 per share vesting immediately. The options expire on the fifth anniversary of their grant date. The directors were granted an aggregate of 600,000 stock options. The options granted to officers totaled 3,050,000 stock options. Following the grant, the total number of outstanding options under the Corporations plan is 5,900,000 or approximately 9.19% of the subordinate voting shares issued and outstanding.
