(via TheNewswire)

Global Energy Metals Corporation

Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / April 3, 2024 / Global Energy Metals Corporation TSXV:GEMC | OTCQB:GBLEF | FSE:5GE1 (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or “GEMC”), a multi-jurisdictional, multi-commodity critical mineral exploration, development and project generating company focused on growth-oriented projects supporting the global transition to clean energy announces that, further to the Company’s news release dated January 30, 2024, the Company has mutually agreed with Fulcrum Metals Plc. (“Fulcrum”) to terminate the royalty purchase and option agreement entered into in January 2024 pursuant to which Global agreed to acquire an immediate 0.5% royalty on net smelter returns (the “NSR”) in Fulcrum’s Charlot-Neely, Fontaine Lake, Snowbird and South Pendleton uranium projects (collectively the “Projects”) located in Saskatchewan, Canada. GEMC will also terminate the option to acquire a 19.9% interest in the Projects.

The Company is pleased to announce that it, in collaboration with Fulcrum, was instrumental in attracting a new strategic partner and as a result the entering of an agreement between Terra Balcanica Resources Corp. (“Terra”) and Fulcrum, whereby Terra intends to acquire 100% interest in the Fulcrum uranium projects through an Option Agreement (the “Option Agreement”). Details of this Option Agreement can be found in announcements made by both Terra and Fulcrum.

As consideration for terminating the existing prior agreement between Fulcrum and Global Energy, Global Energy will be compensated with the equivalent of C$150,000 in shares in Terra on closing of the Option Agreement and granted a 0.5% NSR over the Saskatchewan based project portfolio collectively encompassing 596.71 km2 of highly prospective ground for a uranium discovery.

Highlights:

  • Exposure to uranium, a new commodity to Global Energy’s existing project, equity and royalty portfolio;

  • Strategic equity position in Terra Balcanica, a publicly listed multi-commodity company with a new focus on uranium exploration in the Athabasca Basin (“Basin”);

  • Historical work at the Projects has demonstrated evidence of uranium mineralization along favourable structural trends with prospective target horizons based on electromagnetic conductors;

  • Proximal to northern and southeastern edges of the Basin in northern Saskatchewan, a premium mining district and leading global source of high-grade uranium;

  • Charlot-Neely is located within the emerging Uranium City district on the northwestern margin of the Basin;

  • Exploration expenditures by Terra totalling $3,250,000 prior to the fourth anniversary of the Option Agreement will aim to determine the resource potential for the Projects.

Mitchell Smith, CEO & Director comments:

We are excited to have attracted such a strong operational partner in Terra Balcanica to apply their technical and jurisdictional expertise to advance these North American uranium projects at such a pivotal time in this new nuclear era. Through this arrangement, we’re excited to maintain exposure to these high-quality uranium assets through both the equity position in Terra and the NSR royalty over the portfolio. This will bolster Global Energy’s existing project, royalty and equity portfolio to now include uranium and further demonstrates the Company’s ability to monetize assets for the benefit of shareholders.”

The yellow symbols illustrate locations of the four optioned exploration properties totalling 596 km2 in the context of the world-famous Athabasca Basin.

Portfolio Overview and Discovery Opportunity

The project portfolio totals 596.71km2 targeting major NE-SW trending structures along strike from historic uranium mines and projects that have attracted significant investment. Discoveries such as the Arrow discovery (4.3m tonnes at 0.83% U308 https://www.nexgenenergy.ca/exploration/overview/) and Triple R discovery (2.7m tonnes at 1.94% U308 https://fissionuranium.com/projects/triple-r-deposit/project-overview/) have proved the concept of exploring along structure outside of the Athabasca basin. This potential has been confirmed through initial exploration and evaluation by Fulcrum in 2023. A significant number of high-grade uranium showings occur within the Projects in addition to historical small-scale uranium mining. Future exploration through the undertaking of a modern systematic geologic evaluation to determine the resource potential will be a top-priority for Terra.

Terra Balcanica Resources

Terra Balcanica is a polymetallic exploration company that up until the agreement with Fulcrum has been targeting large-scale mineral systems in the Balkans of southeastern Europe. The Company has 90% interest in the Viogor-Zanik Project in Bosnia and Herzegovina, 100% of the Kaludra and Ceovishte mineral exploration licences in southern Serbia. The Company emphasizes responsible engagement with local communities and stakeholders. It is committed to proactively implementing Good International Industry Practice (GIIP) and sustainable health, safety, and environmental management.

Fulcrum Metals Plc

Fulcrum Metals PLC (LON: FMET) is an AIM quoted exploration company which finances and manages exploration projects focused on Canada, widely recognised as a top mining jurisdiction.

Fulcrum currently holds a beneficial 100% interest in highly prospective gold and base metals projects in Ontario and uranium projects in Saskatchewan.

Fulcrum’s strategy is to focus on discovery and commercialisation of its Projects through targeted exploration programmes. The primary focus is to make an economic discovery on the flagship Schreiber-Hemlo Properties and to establish the prospectivity of its wider Ontario and Saskatchewan portfolio with a view to securing potential joint venture and/or acquisition interest.

While highly prospective, Fulcrum’s mining assets are in the exploration phase, so Fulcrum stands to be able to add significantly to the inherent value through exploration success. Fulcrum will continually review opportunities with potential and with a view to increasing shareholder value. It is the Board’s intention to deliver medium and long-term growth and to establish the Group as a significant exploration company.
