VANCOUVER, CANADA (May 18, 2023) – Aldebaran Resources Inc. (“Aldebaran” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: ALDE, OTCQX: ADBRF) reports that a wholly owned subsidiary of South32 Limited (“South32”) has elected to exercise its top-up right to maintain a 9.9% equity interest in Aldebaran. This top-up right resulted from the warrant exercise that was announced on May 5, 2023, which diluted South32 below its 9.9% position. Under the terms of the Investor Rights Agreement between Aldebaran and South32, the subscription price for this top-up is equal to the five-day volume weighted average price prior to South32 notifying the Company of its decision to exercise its right. The net result is that South32 will acquire 970,000 common shares at a price of $0.73 for gross proceeds to the Company of CAD$708,100.

About Aldebaran Resources Inc.
Aldebaran is a mineral exploration company that was spun out of Regulus Resources Inc. in 2018 and has the same core management team. Aldebaran has the right to earn up to an 80% interest in the Altar copper-gold project in San Juan Province, Argentina from Sibanye Stillwater Limited. The Altar project hosts multiple porphyry copper-gold deposits with potential for additional discoveries. Altar forms part of a cluster of world-class porphyry copper deposits which includes Los Pelambres (Antofagasta Minerals), El Pachón (Glencore), and Los Azules (McEwen Copper). In March 2021 the Company announced an updated mineral resource estimate for Altar, prepared by Independent Mining Consultants Inc. and based on the drilling completed up to and including 2020 (independent technical report prepared by Independent Mining Consultants Inc., Tucson, Arizona, titled "Technical Report, Estimated Mineral Resources, Altar Project, San Juan Province, Argentina", dated March 22, 2021 - see news release dated March 22, 2021).
