PNC Bank Agrees to Year-Round Sponsorship of Health Alliance for Austin Musicians

PNC Financial Services Group

AUSTIN, Texas, May 20, 2022 /3BL Media/ – In another sign of its commitment to the Austin music industry and its economic impacts, PNC Bank today announced a year-round sponsorship with the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM). The bank’s new sponsorship with HAAM, an entity which provides affordable healthcare for greater Austin’s low-income, working musicians, will make PNC the organization’s exclusive financial education partner, and the presenting sponsor of HAAM Day, Austin’s biggest fundraising event supporting local musicians. In addition, PNC has also agreed to become a stage and VIP party sponsor at the HAAM Corporate Battle of the Bands, which features bands representing local businesses vying for the title of Austin’s Best Corporate Band. “We’ve built strong relationships across a number of platforms here in Austin to support and enhance our unique culture, which is deeply rooted in music,” said Dillan Knudson, PNC regional president for Austin. “That ecosystem includes music venues where our clients, employees, citizens, and visitors enjoy a wide variety of musical entertainment and philanthropic organizations that either directly support the music industry or utilize music for educating our children or supporting our underserved populations. At the center of this ecosystem is the musician, and supporting their prosperity is paramount. This agreement amplifies our ability to directly support local musicians by supporting HAAM’s mission, providing financial wellness to HAAM members and through directly hiring HAAM members to perform at PNC events throughout the year. PNC’s Main Street banking model has given our local team the resources to execute an Austin-centric strategy and make a significant impact on our unique and thriving region.” At the crux of the sponsorship is the exclusive financial education partner component, which will involve PNC hosting several financial education workshops to help educate HAAM artists on how to best manage their personal and business finances. The bank’s presenting sponsorship of HAAM Day will also help facilitate the fundraising event that aims to make a difference in the lives of the more than 2,600 musicians covered through HAAM services. The all-day event is scheduled for Sept. 13, 2022, and includes over 200 performances across Austin that culminates in a public concert at Moody Amphitheatre, with a special musician to be announced. The bank’s stage and pre-party sponsorship of HAAM’s Corporate Battle of the Bands, held at ACL Live at the Moody Theater, will include one band entry and the opportunity to host the initiative’s pre-party at PNC Plaza at ACL Live, a new outdoor event venue located outside of the ACL Live venue. The bank’s band entry, all part of the local leadership team, features Knudson on guitar, Private Bank Market Leader Stephen Jeffrey on bass, and Head of Corporate Banking Steven Gonzalez on the drums. “We are so grateful for PNC Bank’s investment, both financially and intellectually, into the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians and also its contributions to the local Austin music community as a whole,” said Paul Scott, HAAM CEO. “It is clear, PNC Bank understands the value our musicians bring to Austin, both culturally and economically, as well as the importance of addressing musician’s pressing and urgent needs, so they can remain in Austin, playing the music we all love to enjoy. In a recent survey, we found the average HAAM member lost around $10,000 in income during 2021, and nearly 65% or our members were behind on bills or accrued credit card debt as a result of this lost income due to COVID-19. PNC Bank’s investment in HAAM will help us sustain healthcare for our members while also supporting our musicians with financial education and literacy opportunities to sustain them in their music careers. This large investment gives us hope in the future trajectory of our organization - thank you, PNC Bank!” The partnership is the most recent milestone for PNC in its investments in the Austin music community, which started in October when it announced it had become the Official Bank of ACL Live and Austin City Limits. In March, PNC became the Austin Chamber of Commerce’s Exclusive Live Music Partner, allowing the bank to continue supporting local artists by providing live musical entertainment at all in-person chamber events throughout the year. In early May, PNC also announced a unique partnership in the form of a new residency program, one that showcases a different local musician each month exclusively at PNC Plaza at ACL Live. The program is produced in tandem with the Austin Music Foundation’s Artist Development Program, which supports the viability, growth and visibility for Austin’s musical talent through a number of ways. About PNC PNC Bank, National Association, is a member of The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc. (NYSE: PNC). PNC is one of the largest diversified financial services institutions in the United States, organized around its customers and communities for strong relationships and local delivery of retail and business banking including a full range of lending products; specialized services for corporations and government entities, including corporate banking, real estate finance and asset-based lending; wealth management and asset management.

Another High Grade Boost for Cortadera 658m at 0.6% CuEq including 130m at 0.9% CuEq

Hot Chili Limited

Highlights · More significant results from development study drilling at the Cortadera porphyry discovery, part of the Company’s low-altitude, Costa Fuego senior copper development in Chile · CORMET005 returned 658m grading 0.6% CuEq (0.4% copper (Cu), 0.2g/t gold (Au), 122ppm molybdenum (Mo)) from 232m depth down-hole, including 134m grading 0.8% CuEq (0.6% Cu, 0.2g/t Au, 181ppm Mo) from 470m depth, and including 130m grading 0.9% CuEq (0.6% Cu, 0.2g/t Au, 253ppm Mo) from 662m depth at the main porphyry (Cuerpo 3) · 30m grading 1.4% CuEq (1.1% Cu, 0.5g/t Au, 165ppm Mo) from 690m depth was recorded outside of the current high grade (+0.6% CuEq) resource model in CORMET005 · All three drill holes reported from Cuerpo 3 at Cortadera confirm expansion of the high grade core ahead of a planned Pre-feasibility study (PFS) and resource upgrade for Costa Fuego later this year · Drilling underway across three fronts - Cortadera, Productora and Valentina - with further drill results expected in the coming weeks · Update on PFS workstreams and port negotiations expected shortly * Copper Equivalent (CuEq) reported for the drill holes at Cortadera were calculated using the following formula: CuEq% = ((Cu% × Cu price 1% per tonne × Cu_recovery) + (Mo ppm × Mo price per g/t × Mo_recovery) + (Au ppm × Au price per g/t × Au_recovery) + (Ag ppm × Ag price per g/t × Ag_recovery)) / (Cu price 1% per tonne). The Metal Prices applied in the calculation were: Cu=3.00 USD/lb, Au=1,700 USD/oz, Mo=14 USD/lb, and Ag=20 USD/oz. Average fresh rock metallurgical recoveries were Cu=83%, Au=56%, Mo=82%, and Ag=37%. Hot Chili Limited (ASX: HCH) (TSXV: HCH) (OTCQX: HHLKF) (“Hot Chili” or “Company”) is pleased to report another outstanding drill result at the Cortadera porphyry deposit, part of the Company’s Costa Fuego, coastal range, copper-gold hub in Chile. Hot Chili’s Managing Director Christian Easterday stated that Cortadera has a track record of outperforming expectation. “The PFS in-fill drill programme across Cortadera has collected important geotechnical and hydrogeological information and has also continued to define and expand high grade resources. “Upgrading our resources with wide drill intersections grading 0.8% to 1.0% copper equivalent is a great outcome, which demonstrates the quality and growth potential of Costa Fuego as one of the only low-altitude, material, copper developments in the world capable of near-term development.” Latest Significant Drill Results from Cortadera Latest results from development study drilling at Cortadera have returned further significant intersections. Diamond drill hole CORMET005 returned 658m grading 0.6% CuEq (0.4% Cu, 0.2g/t Au, 122ppm Mo) from 232m depth, including 134m grading 0.8% CuEq (0.6% Cu, 0.2g/t Au, 181ppm Mo) from 470m depth, and including 130m grading 0.9% CuEq (0.6% Cu, 0.2g/t Au, 253ppm Mo) from 662m depth. CORMET005 was drilled across the northern flank to the high grade core within the main porphyry (Cuerpo 3) at Cortadera. Pleasingly, the wide significant intersection again confirmed further extension to the high grade core and included an impressive 30m grading 1.4% CuEq (1.1% Cu, 0.5g/t Au, 165ppm Mo) from 690m depth outside of the current high grade (+0.6% CuEq) resource model. The latest result follows the previous two outstanding drill results (see announcements dated 4 th April 2022 and 29 th April 2022) from Cuerpo 3, which also confirmed further growth of the high grade core, notably: · 552m at 0.6% CuEq from 276m depth, including 248m at 0.8% CuEq (CORMET003), and · 876m grading 0.5% CuEq from 246m depth, including 206m grading 0.9% CuEq (CORMET006) In addition, diamond drill hole CORMET002 has returned 370m grading 0.4% CuEq (0.3% Cu, 0.1g/t Au) from surface, including 20m grading 0.8% CuEq (0.6% Cu, 0.4g/t Au) from 24m depth, and including 22m grading 1.0% CuEq (0.8% Cu, 0.5g/t Au) from 136m depth at Cuerpo 2. These high grade intersections were also outside the current high grade resource at Cuerpo 2. A final development study diamond drill hole (CORMET004) is being completed at Cortadera and results are also pending for four metallurgical diamond drill holes completed at Productora. High Grade Satellite Resource Drilling Underway Resource growth drilling has commenced targeting the San Antonio and Valentina high grade copper deposits, located 5 kms northeast of Cortadera. High grade, copper-gold mineralisation at both deposits remains open at depth and along strike. Drilling is already underway at Valentina where ten drill holes are planned. A further thirteen drill holes are planned at San Antonio. San Antonio’s maiden Inferred resource, reported in March, extends from surface and already stands at 4.2Mt @ 1.2% CuEq (1.1% Cu, 2.1g/t Ag) for 48kt Cu and 287kt Ag. Both high grade satellite deposits are intended to form part of Costa Fuego’s next resource upgrade and combined PFS open pit mine schedule later this year. Santiago Z Target Prepared for First-Ever Drilling Platform and access clearing across the Santiago Z exploration target is expected to be complete in the coming week and first-pass drilling is expected to commence following conclusion of drilling at Valentina and San Antonio. Hot Chili’s soil results and mapping have confirmed a potentially large copper porphyry footprint measuring over 4km in length and 2km in width at the Santiago Z landholding, located immediately south of Cortadera. The Company looks forward to releasing further updates from its exploration, drilling and development study workstreams shortly. This announcement is authorised by the Board of Directors for release to ASX. For full report please visit www.SEDAR.com About Hot Chili Hot Chili Limited is a mineral exploration company with assets in Chile.

New World-Class Treatment Center Announces $34 Million Investment in Pitt County, North Carolina.

Haven at Blue Creek

Haven at Blue Creek celebrated the ground breaking of their new Holistic Recovery Campus on Thursday, May 19 th. Nestled on a 250-acre land parcel, Haven at Blue Creek is the culmination of many years of work including the NC certificate of need application process and successful approval for the behavioral health program to proceed. Haven at Blue Creek received great support for this facility from many community members, local and statewide dignitaries that wrote letters of support to accompany the certificate of need requirements. Haven at Blue Creek is also grateful to the State of North Carolina and Pitt County for a $500,000 Building Reuse grant that will support this important project. Thoughtful planning and dedication are truly a testament to the power of the Balot family’s passion for providing these services to the Pitt County community. Haven at Blue Creek’s 75,000 square-foot facility will be home to 84 beds, a result of the Balot family’s vision and eager planning over the past five years. A local understanding and commitment is evident with a dedicated building team that includes: Erin Sterling-Lewis of Open Studio Design in coordination with Sal Lore and Steve Auger from AKA Architects; Civil Engineering led by Bryan Fagundus of ARK Consulting, and White Construction services provided by Eddie White, Project Manager Ryan Corbett and the rest of their team. Haven at Blue Creek is committed to significant community support offering employment, growth, education and future community partnerships within the community. From the outset of this project, the focus has been to align the best talent and resources to provide the community with a clinically excellent and safe place where recovery from behavioral health problems is possible for individuals and their families. The campus will create at least 80 new jobs and work hand-in-hand with community partners to support education and prevention on issues related to trauma, substance use/abuse and mental health disorders. Set to open in late 2023, Haven at Blue Creek intends to be a beacon for recovery for those in need in the community. “Prevention and education brought to the community and schools will be essential in keeping a keen eye on the growing addiction concerns we face,” says Haven at Blue Creek, President, Colleen Balot. “Taking care of our community, keeping them safe and informed, is important to our family and our children’s futures, and sound rationale for providing treatment services”. “Haven at Blue Creek is a genuine blessing for eastern North Carolina. Our families will be better off because of this facility,” said NC Senator, Don Davis. In a post covid environment, and a country-wide, soaring opioid crisis, Haven at Blue Creek recognizes the importance of active relationships to deliver substance use disorder education and prevention services for the local community. “Society says it’s too hard to have vision and dreams, but the Balots have a dream and vision to make the world a better place,” said Rich Zeck, Mayor of Simpson. He added “community is where each and every one of us work to make lives better for all of us. This work will serve not only this community, but the region and state beyond.” As a family owned and operated Holistic Behavioral Health Campus, the founders are long time Greenville residents. “We are committed to our community and taking care of those in need to create a path for wellbeing for people where they live, when they need it”, says, President and CEO Colleen Balot. Haven at Blue Creek will be both a peaceful and private campus, with ponds and wooded areas along the perimeter. Patients wanting treatment will have access to all levels of care in a secure and tranquil setting. The initial phase of the campus has begun, with a Spiritual Renewal Center and athletic facilities, including an Olympic-sized pool, already completed. The dream unfolds and this ground-breaking marks the additional construction and paves the way for the facility’s completion. Allen Thomas, Former Mayor of Greenville, and current Regional Administrator, Southeast United States for the Small Business Administration has this to say about the new campus: “We are very excited about the world-class behavioral health services coming to the Pitt County area that will augment our existing tertiary healthcare system. We have a substantial need in our community for the compassionate and intentional services that will be provided by Haven at Blue Creek. I applaud the exponential efforts put forth by Colleen and Rich Balot to secure and fund these much-needed services for our community.” Downloads: Renderings and photos of the Balot’s https://havenatbluecreek.com/press-release/ About Haven at Blue Creek Family-owned and operated by Rich and Colleen Balot, Haven at Blue Creek is a substance use disorder campus.
