Global Energy Metals Closes Acquisition of Monument Peak Copper-Silver-Gold Project in Idaho and the Chance Lake and Amiral Nickel-Copper-Cobalt-PGE Projects in Quebec
May 21, 2021 (Source) — Global Energy Metals Corporation (TSXV:GEMC) | (OTC:GBLEF) | (FSE:5GE1) (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or “GEMC”), a company involved in the investment exposure to the battery metals supply chain, is pleased to announce it has closed the acquisition of a portfolio of battery metal projects from DG Resource Management, which include, (i) the Monument Peak Copper-Silver-Gold project, located in Lemhi County, Idaho USA, (ii) the Chance Lake Nickel, Copper, Cobalt property in the Hollinger North Shore region, Quebec; and (iii) Amiral Nickel, Copper, PGE property, located in the Grenville region, Quebec (collectively, the “Properties”).
The acquisition is part of an ongoing effort by the Company to assemble battery metals-rich projects in top-tier mining jurisdictions with exploration & development upside. For further details, please refer to the Company’s news releases dated March 2, 2021 and March 23, 2021.
Mitchell Smith, President & CEO of Global Energy Metals, said, “We are thrilled to close this acquisition which expands Global Energy’s battery metal portfolio in North America. We will benefit from the excellent work done by DG Resource Management from whom we inherited a comprehensive suite of high-quality exploration data. At Monument Peak specifically, results indicate the copper-silver-gold mineralization is characteristic of a Volcanogenic Massive Sulfide (VMS) deposit which offers a compelling exploration target with over 3,000+ m of mapped strike length. The Company intends to undertake an aggressive exploration program at Monument Peak, following the planned drill campaign our Nevada-based Lovelock cobalt-nickel-copper project.”
Recent comprehensive work on the Properties provides Global Energy Metals with a solid framework from which to resume exploration. The company is currently planning for additional spring/summer reconnaissance exploration at Monument Peak to evaluate historically defined targets, which will include the completion of a NI 43-101 compliant technical report, and which is intended to provide recommendations for an aggressive summer/fall drill program.
At Monument Peak, the Company recently reported that field crews visited four known mineral occurrences (Jackson/Baker, Hungry Hill Mine, Anderson and North Showing) and confirmed the high-grade copper-silver-gold mineralization at all locations. Observed mineralization style and grade is similar across all showings, with notably higher copper grades (up to 20.9% Cu) at Hungry Hill, while the North Showing had the highest gold values (up to 11.4 g/t Au). High grades of silver (greater than 80 g/t Ag) were associated with all mineral occurrences. Arithmetic average of all grab samples 2.34% Cu, 57.6 g/t Ag, 0.68 g/t Au.
The Company has agreed to acquire its interest in the Properties by making $200,000 in cash payments and issuing 1,750,000 shares and 1,750,000 warrants. Each warrant will be exercisable into one share at a price of $0.30 per share for a two-year period, subject to an acceleration right. Pursuant to the Agreement, the Vendors have agreed to spend $100,000 on a work program on the Monument Peak property.
