I am not a lawyer and not familiar with Canadian law.
But you ask
"Where in todays release do they state that they became aware of the NI 43-101 just on the 21st. of January. "
"The Resource Estimate was issued in January"
The resource estimate was " is dated effective December 15"
"updated NI 43-101 Report, which has been prepared by Snowden Mining Industry Consultants Inc. ("Snowden") for the Company’s Steenkampskraal rare earth property located in the Western Cape of South Africa, is dated effective December 15"
Waiting due to time requirements associated with regulation would have been a very valid reason for the PEA to be delayed. This was not what the PR stated today. So your excuse is moot.
