Azincourt Energy is on the trail for the next big uranium story

Nuclear power is increasingly recognized as a sustainable and environmentally friendly source of energy. It has the potential to improve the energy industry’s sustainability and help preserve our planet for future generations. Unlike fossil fuels, nuclear power does not produce greenhouse gasses or pollution. It is also a very efficient way to generate electricity, with a single nuclear plant providing enough power for millions of homes.

In addition, nuclear power plants have a very long lifespan and can continue to produce electricity for decades. Nuclear power offers a clean and sustainable solution as we face the challenges of climate change and the need to move away from fossil fuels. There has been some pushback from nations on nuclear energy. In the aftermath of Fukushima, all of Japan’s nuclear reactors were shut down, and the country’s uranium industry came to a standstill.

However, now Japan is preparing to restart several idled nuclear reactors and even build new ones. Dealing with sky-high prices of fossil fuels and a global power crisis, the country has decided that securing its future energy needs requires a return to nuclear energy. This change marks a major inflection point for the uranium industry, which will be closely watching Japan’s progress in the months and years to come.

Other areas of the world are also changing their tone on nuclear power. Europe is dealing with an energy crisis with the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. Germany is planning to delay its phasing out of nuclear plants, and France plans to build six new nuclear power plants. Nuclear power is also being increasingly seen as a “green” technology as unlike burning hydrocarbons, it does not emit carbon into the atmosphere. Uranium mining companies are poised to benefit from this renewed interest in nuclear energy.

Azincourt Energy Corp. (TSXV: AAZ | OTCQB: AZURF) has two projects in Canada that can potentially contain large deposits of uranium and other minerals. The company is actively engaged in exploring these two projects.

The East Preston Project and the Hatchet Lake Project are both progressing for potentially discovering uranium and other mineral deposits. Azincourt controls a majority 72.8% interest in the 25,000+ hectare East Preston project as part of a joint venture agreement with Skyharbour Resources (TSX.V: SYH), and Dixie Gold. In July Azincourt announced that drilling at the East Preston Project resulted in the identification of uranium enrichment within alteration zones. The company completed the drilling program over the course of the winter 2021-22 season.

This new information points to the likely presence of uranium-bearing fluids within the alteration system. Their next step is identifying the extent of the alteration, and areas of fluid concentration and strong uranium enrichment. The company plans to conduct an announced 6,000m drilling program in fall to winter 2022-23 to better understand the project’s potential.

The Hatchet Lake project is Azincourt’s other proespective property. Azincourt entered into an option agreement with ValOre Metals Corp. in November, 2021, to earn up to a 75% interest in the Hatchet Lake property. Hatchet Lake is located outside the northeastern margin of the Athabasca Basin along the Western Wollaston Domain (WWD) within the Wollaston-Mudjatik Transition Zone (WMTZ). This entire area is already inhabited by all of Canada’s operating uranium mines.

The surrounding areas are largely unexplored, which makes this a great potential opportunity for Azincourt. Based on previous work from Hathor Exploration Ltd. and Rio Tinto, there is a possibility that Hatchet Lake has multiple shallow, unconformity-related basement uranium targets. The company plans to carry out a geophysics and 1,500 m drill exploration program in fall 2022 at Hatchet Lake in order to better understand and advance the project.

It is early days in the exploration of Hatchet Lake and East Preston for Azincourt, but as CEO and President Alex Klenman recently stated: “Our treasury is extremely strong, and we’re fully funded to execute all of our exploration plans over the next year, and beyond. We’re going to be very active and plan to be aggressive with the drills.”




John Cash of Ur-Energy talks about renewed support for uranium producers and nuclear energy

In this InvestorIntel interview host Jack Lifton talks to Ur-Energy Inc.‘s (NYSE American: URG | TSX: URE) Chairman, CEO & President John Cash about the recent positive news for uranium producers and the coming renaissance of nuclear energy.

In the interview, which can also be viewed in full on the InvestorIntel YouTube channel (click here to access InvestorChannel.com), John tells Jack that “so much good news has come out in the last just two or three weeks,” starting with the Inflation Reduction Act, which includes “a number of provisions within that act that really provide a lot of support for our existing reactors in the U.S. and also new builds going forward.” John goes on to say that “everyone was assuming that a number of reactors in the U.S. would be shutting down over the next 20 years, but I don’t think that’s the case anymore,” and “that means that they’ll be buying more uranium. There will be more demand on the front end of the fuel cycle and throughout the fuel cycle to keep those reactors up and running.”

John also talks about the increasing reliance on nuclear fuel as a green, carbon neutral source of energy, with reactors being restarted and new builds underway, including China’s ongoing build program of 150 new reactors. He also talks about the future of small modular reactors, with the expectation in the industry that as many as 300 new small modular reactors will be built by 2050 to meet domestic energy needs. John tells Jack that this renewed interest in nuclear energy will substantially increase demand for uranium, particularly from producers in stable, friendly jurisdictions.

Are we slaves to Russian uranium processing?

I think that investors in an economy to be based on decarbonized energy sources have very limited choices. The best man-made addition to nature’s hydroelectric and geothermal processes is nuclear. Quite a few who were skeptical are now seeing how to keep the lights on without burning fossil fuels by using the heat generated by controlled nuclear fission of uranium-235.

Japan has pulled back from its Fukushima tsunami-caused national shut down of its extensive civilian nuclear power fleet of reactors, and ordered the restart of its nuclear electric industry, France, the most nuclearized electricity generating nation in the world, has ordered 14 new reactors. Germany has postponed its shutdown of its nuclear-electric capacity, and the USA, with the world’s largest fleet of civilian power reactors (96 operational), has licensed the test construction of small “modular” reactors (SMRs), which could built quickly and cost far less than the large scale reactors currently in use.

So, what’s the problem? We’ve seen the light and are going to continue to use and even expand the use of carbon-free uranium fueled nuclear electric generators, right?

The problems are two-fold. First, the largest users of nuclear electric generation – the USA, China, and France – do not have, and cannot have, enough domestically mined uranium production in their respective countries to supply even a small fraction of their needs. Second, 60% (!) of the capability and capacity to enrich natural uranium into reactor fuel (zirconium coated pellets of enriched uranium 235) is located in Russia and China, with most of that today (nearly 50% of the world’s total capacity) being in Russia.

The United States has one operational plant that can produce less than a third of its annual domestic needs, and that plant is managed by its UK-Netherlands-Germany owners. China’s China Nuclear Corporation is, of course, working to double its capacity to meet the needs of China’s rapidly growing civilian nuclear reactor fleet, so that by 2030 China plans to have nearly one-third of global capacity, which when combined with Russia’s capacity that year will give the two of them fully two-thirds of 2030’s global capacity to enrich uranium for civilian power reactors.

The USA has no plans to develop or find sufficient enrichment capacity to become domestically self-sufficient by 2030 or any other future date.

And, to compound the problem, the USA today produces just a few percent of its mined uranium demand!

The world’s largest fleet of civilian nuclear power reactors is totally dependent on the kindness of strangers for its continued operation and survival. The USA gets 20% of our national needs for fuel for (nuclear) electricity generation from malevolent dictatorships (Russia, China) and the rest from an energy-starved world that is becoming less interested in saving the world from climate change daily. Neither is likely to have America’s domestic needs at the top of their lists.

As for the mined uranium, Kazakhstan, Canada, and Australia are the world’s principal sources.

It is urgent that the USA mine, refine, and enrich all of the uranium it can from domestic sources as soon as possible.

A prominent American-based uranium miner/refiner told me last week in regard to the above, “Once the US government dropped uranium as a national priority as it once was, things went to hell in a hand basket. Give me $5 billion and 10 years and this can change.”

Perhaps that sum can be obtained from the US Defense Departments’ programs to teach social justice issues like proper pronoun usage to our soldiers, sailors, and airmen.




WUC’s George Glasier with Byron King on American dependence on ‘unstable nuclear fuel sources’

In this InvestorIntel interview host Byron W King talks to Western Uranium & Vanadium Corp. (CSE: WUC | OTCQX: WSTRF) President, CEO and Director George Glasier about its Sunday Mine Complex in Western Colorado.

In the interview, which can also be viewed in full on the InvestorIntel YouTube channel (click here), George tells Byron that the Sunday mine complex was in production for a number of years before Western Uranium & Vanadium acquired it in 2014 and “produced significant quantities of uranium and vanadium in the past and is ready to produce.” He explains that “there are actually four separate mines all permitted, all developed. We’re in one of them right now producing and stockpiling ore and preparing to go into the other three.”

Discussing American and European dependence on Russian uranium, George tells Byron that “we cannot be reliant on potentially unstable sources of nuclear fuel. The utilities certainly are going to look at western suppliers for all components of nuclear fuel and I think that’s good for not only our company, it’s good for all western producers.” With $9 million in the bank, “a significant profit from the sale of uranium,” as well as ongoing revenues from oil and gas royalties, George goes on to say that Western Uranium & Vanadium is “well cashed up” to execute its ongoing development plans.

Eye on the price of uranium, Cameco brings crown jewel back into production and Ur-Energy is set to go.

Uranium stocks were buoyed today by solid earnings out of the Godfather of North American uranium producers – Cameco Corp. (TSX: CCO | NYSE: CCJ). On the surface, higher realized uranium prices more than offset higher costs leading to Cameco beating estimates and setting a bullish tone for the whole sector. However, a deeper dive into those results suggests things may not bode well for the rest of the world’s producers going forward as this juggernaut is cranking up their McArthur River mine and Key Lake mill with a target of 15 million pounds per year of production by 2024 (versus zero at present). That represents roughly 14% of 2021 global uranium production. I recognize Cameco knows how to play the game, and that between them and Kazatomprom they probably have a stronger hold on uranium than OPEC has on oil, so my guess is it’s unlikely uranium prices will tank moving forward. Nevertheless, I would suggest caution when forecasting how high uranium prices could go, even if the relationship between Russia and its allies worsens with the rest of the world.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not forecasting doom and gloom for all other uranium producers, in fact, I would suggest it’s the opposite. If Cameco is optimistic enough to bring one of their crown jewels back into active operation, then they obviously believe that uranium pricing in the US$45-US$55/lb range is sustainable. Thus, as long as a producer can make a decent return at that pricing level then all should be good.

So, let’s turn our focus to one of the lowest-cost producers of uranium in North America, Ur-Energy Inc. (NYSE American: URG | TSX: URE). This uranium mining company operates the Lost Creek in-situ uranium facility in south-central Wyoming. Ur-Energy now has all major permits and authorizations to begin construction at Shirley Basin, the company’s second in-situ recovery uranium facility in Wyoming and is in the process of obtaining remaining amendments to Lost Creek authorizations for expansion of Lost Creek.

Similar to Cameco, in Q4, 2021 Ur-Energy initiated an advance development program at Lost Creek designed to significantly improve the ability to quickly return to production. A drilling and construction program commenced to complete the development of the fourth header house in MU2 (mine unit) HH 2-4. The header house, and its associated drilling and wellfield development, is expected to be complete in Q3, 2022, at which time HH 2-4 will be ready for production. Additionally, they have ordered all necessary equipment to construct the fifth header house (HH 2-5) and the long-lead items for the sixth header house in MU2. In conjunction with HH 2-4 work, the 2022 delineation drill program will assist with subsequent wellfield design within MU2. Lost Creek operations can increase to full production rates of an annualized run rate of up to 1.2 million pounds in as little as six months following a “go” decision plus the facility now has the constructed and licensed capacity to process up to 2.2 million pounds of U3O8 per year and sufficient mineral resources to feed the processing plant for many years to come.

On top of that, the company’s cash position as of April 28, 2022, was US$45.8 million and in addition to this strong cash position, they have nearly 284,000 pounds of finished, U.S. produced U3O8 inventory at the conversion facility, worth approximately US$13.4 million at recent spot prices. This financial position provides Ur-Energy with adequate funds to maintain and enhance operational readiness at Lost Creek, as well as allowing them to preserve existing inventory to sell into higher prices.

Ur-Energy is cash rich and optimally situated to take advantage of any potential “on-shoring” of uranium supply. It appears Cameco is ready to make the leap of faith that priority will be given to domestic or “friendly” supply, perhaps Ur-Energy will soon join the fun. With a market cap of approximately US$282 million, investors need to decide what 1.2 to 2.2 million pounds per annum of domestically produced uranium is worth.




Appia Rare Earths & Uranium by the numbers

Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corp. (CSE: API | OTCQX: APAAF) recently reported results from its 2021 drilling program and work completed this year on its Alces Lake property in Northern Saskatchewan. While results are still pending from the 34 holes drilled at the recently renamed site Magnet Ridge (formerly Augier), other areas returned values as high as 14.95% TREO over 0.66 metres. This is high compared to most deposits. As of early July Appia has drilled over 14,000 metres in 2022 and plans to drill up to 20,000 metres this year, which should provide them with valuable information on the Alces Lake deposit. Magnet ridge is interesting as Appia has reported it outcrops at surface with a strike length of about 300 metres and a width of 175 metres, and has been penetrated to over 100 metres deep.

The mineral hosting the rare earths at Alces Lake is monazite. Monazite is regularly processed in China to produce rare earths, so making a concentrate and separating the rare earths is an established technology. In several jurisdictions, this could be a problem as monazite is typically associated with the radioactive elements Thorium (Th) and Uranium(U). However, it comes down to the old paradigm, location, location, location. Being situated in Saskatchewan, Appia is in a jurisdiction that understands radioactive materials and that they can be properly handled and stored, and in the case of uranium can be a valuable resource. The other advantage for Appia being in Saskatchewan is that the Saskatchewan Research Council is building a pilot plant for rare earth separation over the next 2 years. This will give Appia the ability to test their material locally, which is a significant advantage.

A 2020 Appia presentation indicates Neodymium (Nd) oxide levels of 17.4% and Praseodymium (Pr) oxide of 5.4% which gives a combined total of just under 23%. This is close to the Lynas levels from its Mt. Weld deposit, which Roskill’s Market Outlook 2015 indicates to be 23.8%. The Mountain Pass Mine, the deposit in California owned by MP Materials, has Nd+Pr levels at 16.3%. so they would have to process up to 50% more material to get the same revenue levels as Appia or Lynas. In addition, Appia’s report shows added value in Terbium (Tb) and Dysprosium (Dy). Looking at recent pricing in Shanghai Metal Markets (SMM), the Nd/Pr holds 87.8% of the total value. Terbium and Dysprosium add another 0.3%. This assumes that all the elements are sold, which typically is impossible, especially the Cerium, which is over 49% of the total volume. However, there may be markets in North America and possibly Europe for Cerium and Lanthanum. Their current price in China is $1.22 and $1.15 per kg respectively and freight can be a high proportion of the total cost of the product outside of Asia.

One way to look at the value of the deposit is to see what potential revenue can be generated from the four main magnetic elements (Neodymium, Praseodymium, Terbium and Dysprosium). Assuming the long range plans would be to build a 20,000 TPY plant, which is similar to the previous Molycorp output and just below the Lynas present output of around 22,000 TPY, their projected revenues would be around US$500 million per year. This assumes 90% recoveries and revenues only from Nd+Pr. Any sales of Cerium and Lanthanum would be minimal but an added bonus.

In addition, Appia has properties in the Elliot Lake area in Ontario. This is in the right area code as from the mid-late 1950s to 1990 there were 10 mines producing Uranium. Again location, location, location. Given the push for electric vehicles and the corresponding increase in electrical demand, countries are going to review their long term needs including Germany and China, and possibly India, and given alternative producing options nuclear is a cleaner way than coal or gas to produce electricity. Also given the current Russian situation more focus will come on nuclear and correspondingly Uranium. Thorium may also come into demand as it can reduce the operating temperature and thereby improve safety.

All things considered, Appia has an interesting opportunity and with the grades shown so far, and is poised to take the next steps to becoming a potential domestic producer of rare earths.




Experience, low‐risk drilling inventory and strategic access helps Southern Energy raise US $31 million

I always like a story where a hard-working, knowledgeable management team sets its nose to the grindstone to try and eke out a decent return for shareholders, and then almost overnight the world changes and you’re one of the hottest stocks out there. Often times it has to do with finding something unexpected with the drill bit that changes the fortunes of the company. However, in this case, it was a commodity price that had languished for years but in the last six months has almost doubled. I’m talking about Henry Hub natural gas prices and if you look back a few weeks it hit a peak of 150% over where it started the year. The Sprott Physical Uranium Trust (TSX: U.UN) wishes it could have that kind of influence on prices. Unfortunately, it was a much larger event that has impacted natural gas prices, along with plenty of other commodities.

Source: StockCharts.com

Even though almost every natural gas leveraged company has seen a great run, the additional bonus for Southern Energy Corp. (TSXV: SOU) is the location of its assets. As a natural gas exploration and production company with its primary focus on acquiring and developing conventional natural gas and light oil resources in the southeast Gulf States of Mississippi, Louisiana, and East Texas, it’s close to most of the U.S. LNG export capacity (even after the Freeport LNG facility, which provides about 20% of US LNG processing, tried to blow itself up). Albeit the Freeport LNG explosion actually caused U.S. gas prices to fall from their lofty heights as a result of 2 bcf/d or a little over 2% of demand for U.S. natural gas having been abruptly eliminated. Nevertheless, as the rest of the world becomes a little less stable, being close to export infrastructure should ultimately be a good thing, in my opinion.

For Southern, its assets in Mississippi are characterized by a stable, low‐decline production base, a significant low‐risk drilling inventory and strategic access to the best commodity pricing in North America. Southern’s mission is to build a socially responsible and environmentally conscious natural gas and light oil company in the Southeast Gulf States. In these areas, Southern has access to major pipelines, significant Company‐owned infrastructure, year‐round access to drill, and the ability to shift focus between natural gas or crude oil development as commodity prices fluctuate; all factors that contribute to mitigating corporate risk.

Another factor that will mitigate corporate risk is the recently announced successful completion of a US$31 million equity financing, of which US$12.5 million came from strong demand in the U.K. Another indication that Europe is worried about its natural gas supply and Southern is located in a great place to help support that demand. Net proceeds of the Offering will primarily be used to accelerate the initiation of a continuous organic drilling program at Gwinville, where the Company operates and owns an average 96.7% working interest in approximately 12,000 acres. The Gwinville property represents about 53% of the company’s Proved plus Probable (2P) reserves, and approximately 23% of Southern’s 2021 average production.

At the end of Q1, corporate production stood at 11,515 Mcfe/d of 92% natural gas. Although I would anticipate production to start moving higher as Southern rig released two (2.0 net) wells of the three well program at Gwinville in Q1 2022 with the third well rig released in April 2022. In May 2022, completion operations began on the three‐well horizontal padsite. The first well to begin flowback following the stimulation was the GH 19‐3 #3 well, which came on‐line on May 25, 2022. The GH 19‐3 #2 and GH 19‐3 #4 wells are expected to be on‐line shortly, and the Company is looking forward to providing initial production results in the coming weeks. This may not have a lot of impact on Q2 results but it certainly sets the table for Q3.

The recently completed capital raise by Southern puts the Company on solid footing to start expanding production and take advantage of the best natural gas prices in over a decade. Production assets are ideally located for maximizing corporate netbacks and an experienced and successful management team, with a history of creating shareholder value together, bodes well for the future of Southern Energy. Subsequent to the closing of the latest share issuance (expected July 7th) the Company will have a market cap of roughly C$105 million (based on yesterday’s closing price) and US$31 million to try and make that market cap grow.




Byron W King talks to Energy Fuels and Ur-Energy about ramping up US uranium production

In this InvestorIntel interview during PDAC 2022, host Byron W King is joined by Energy Fuels Inc.‘s (NYSE American: UUUU | TSX: EFR) Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Development Curtis Moore, and Ur-Energy Inc.‘s (NYSE American: URG | TSX: URE) Chairman, CEO, and President John Cash

In the interview, which can also be viewed in full on the InvestorIntel YouTube channel (click here), John and Curtis discuss world supply of uranium, which comes mostly out of Russia and Kazakhstan, and the capability of US producers to ramp up production quickly in case of increased demand or foreign supply problems. They also talk about the newly proposed, but short on details, $4 billion US uranium support program that John Cash says will “probably be mostly focused on enrichment and conversion, but the feedstock for those two processes would likely come from domestic mines.”

Curtis talks about Energy Fuels’ White Mesa Mill, the only conventional uranium mill left in the United States, which has been has recently been focused on rare earth elements, but he says “we’re actually right now getting ready to switch over to producing uranium” as markets come back and Energy Fuels has sign a couple of long-term contracts with some US utilities.”

Dev Randhawa of Fission 3.0 talks about US reliance on Russian uranium

In this InvestorIntel interview during PDAC 2022, host Tracy Weslosky talks with Fission 3.0 Corp.‘s (TSXV: FUU | OTCQB: FISOF) Chairman and CEO Dev Randhawa about its uranium projects in the Athabasca Basin and the search for a domestic supply.

In the interview, which can also be viewed in full on the InvestorIntel YouTube channel (click here), Dev says that the uranium “fundamentals are better than ever” he has seen in his 30-year career, with traditional skeptics such as the American Democrats and green energy advocates now embracing nuclear energy as a carbon-neutral fuel.

Making the case for securing a domestic supply of uranium in light of Russian uncertainties, Dev said that “you have to keep in mind in America every fifth household is literally fueled by uranium – without nuclear power they can’t turn the lights on. Every tenth household is powered by Russian uranium.”

Dev also talks about Fission 3.0’s strengths as a North American uranium explorer, including a treasury with $14 million in cash, strong management and project locations near other large uranium discoveries, including Arrow, Triple R and Hurricane.

The Uranium Bull in the Room – Why the Excitement is Back

In this InvestorIntel PDAC 2022 Panel on “The Uranium Bull in the Room”, host Tracy Weslosky is joined by Energy Fuels Inc.‘s (NYSE American: UUUU | TSX: EFR) Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Development Curtis Moore, Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corp.‘s (CSE: API | OTCQX: APAAF) CEO and Director Tom Drivas, Standard Uranium Ltd.‘s (TSXV: STND | OTCQB: STTDF) CEO and Chairman Jon Bey, and U3O8 Corp. (NEX: UWE.H) President, CEO and Director Dr. Richard Spencer.

In the video, which can also be viewed in full on the InvestorIntel YouTube channel (click here), Curtis Moore says that there was a lot of excitement at PDAC this year over uranium, with the spot price rising and nuclear power being an essential part of the world-wide commitment to carbon-free energy production. Dr Richard Spencer added that “you cannot get to net zero without nuclear” and that a “fundamental driver of the uranium space at the moment is the small modular reactors.”

Jon Bey points out that Canada is moving forward with plans for small modular reactors in several provinces, including Saskatchewan. “Isn’t it amazing the place where uranium is being mined is actually going to be powered by nuclear?”

The panel discusses how the Sprott Physical Uranium Trust has had an impact on the uranium market. Energy Fuels’ Curtis Moore observes that the Sprott fund “basically swept up a whole bunch of excess inventories that were floating around the market, being traded around and keeping the price depressed,” and has resulted now in “a nice uplift in the price.”

The drive to secure a domestic supply of uranium is also discussed, as well as the concerns about “Russia controlling about two-thirds of the world’s uranium resources.” Tom Drivas says that with current geopolitical uncertainties “even eastern European countries are looking to uranium outside of Russia.”

About Energy Fuels Inc.

Energy Fuels is a leading U.S.-based uranium mining company, supplying U3Oto major nuclear utilities. Energy Fuels also produces vanadium from certain of its projects, as market conditions warrant, and is ramping up commercial-scale production of rare earth element (“REE“) carbonate. Its corporate offices are in Lakewood, Colorado, near Denver, and all its assets and employees are in the United States. Energy Fuels holds three of America’s key uranium production centers: the White Mesa Mill in Utah, the Nichols Ranch in-situ recovery (“ISR“) Project in Wyoming, and the Alta Mesa ISR Project in Texas. The White Mesa Mill is the only conventional uranium mill operating in the U.S. today, has a licensed capacity of over 8 million pounds of U3Oper year, and has the ability to recycle alternate feed materials from third parties, to produce vanadium when market conditions warrant, and to produce REE carbonate from various uranium-bearing ores. Energy Fuels is also evaluating the potential to recover medical isotopes for use in targeted alpha therapy cancer treatments. The Nichols Ranch ISR Project is on standby and has a licensed capacity of 2 million pounds of U3O8 per year. The Alta Mesa ISR Project is also on standby and has a licensed capacity of 1.5 million pounds of U3Oper year. In addition to the above production facilities, Energy Fuels also has one of the largest SK-1300/NI 43-101 compliant uranium resource portfolios in the U.S. and several uranium and uranium/vanadium mining projects on standby and in various stages of permitting and development.

About U3O8 Corp.

U3O8 Corp. is focused on the development of the Berlin Deposit in Colombia. Apart from uranium for clean, nuclear energy, the Berlin Deposit contains battery commodities; nickel, phosphate and vanadium. Phosphate is a key component of lithium-ion ferro-phosphate (“LFP”) batteries that are being used by BYD, Tesla and a growing list of electric vehicle manufacturers. Nickel is a component of various lithium-ion batteries, while vanadium is the element used in vanadium redox flow batteries. Neodymium, one of the rare earth elements contained within the Berlin Deposit, is a key component of powerful magnets that are used to increase the efficiency of electric motors and in generators in wind turbines.

The Company’s mineral resource estimate for the Berlin Deposit was made in accordance with National Instrument 43-101. The preliminary economic assessment (“PEA”) on the Berlin Deposit showed positive economics and highlighted areas in which both operating, and capital costs could be reduced to enhance the economics of the deposit. Extensive metallurgical test work showed that revenue streams would be dominated by uranium, phosphate, nickel, vanadium and rare earth elements, of which only two were considered in the economic assessment.

A PEA is preliminary in nature, it includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the preliminary economic assessment will be realized.
