Client Testimonial from Don Smith, Managing Director of Tempest Minerals Limited (ASX:TEM)

Having an authentic, natural conversation while being exposed to a wide range of audience is something Don Smith appreciates on Coffee with Samso.

Client testimonial from Don Smith, Managing Director Tempest Minerals Limited (ASX:TEM)

Don Smith: "I knew Noel from before, so I naturally said yes when invited for a Coffee with Samso. It has a high profile and a strongly followed podcast. It's also done in an enjoyable format.

Noel is a master of customising the experience to make the subject feel like it's not an interview. The discussion is not forced and there isn't a 'plastic' sort of feeling. It's organic and authentic.

Samso brings great exposure to a wide audience of retail and commercial investors and connects them with the subject in a unique way.

The influence and authenticity of the discussions bring a certain intimacy with the audience that isn't present in other media formats and platforms.

I've always thought well of the Coffee with Samso concept prior to doing it, and now I think it's just got bigger and better. It's something I would unhesitatingly recommend to my associates."

About Tempest Minerals Ltd (ASX:TEM)

The Company listed via initial public offering (IPO) in 2017 under the name Lithium Consolidated Mineral Exploration Limited (Li3) with the goal of feeding the rapidly growing battery mineral industry. Li3 went on to acquire multiple lithium projects on 3 continents and had a string of successful exploration and divestment transactions.

In 2019, faced with a challenging lithium market, the board decided to expand the strategic focus of the company into a more diversified direction and began looking at other commodities such as copper. At the end of 2019, Li3 acquired private exploration company Warrigal Mining and have subsequently continued developing an exciting portfolio of precious and base metals projects in Western Australia to complement the existing energy metal projects.

In August 2020, shareholders elected to rebrand the company to Tempest Minerals Ltd to better reflect the evolved business and its more diverse commodity focus.
