April 6, 2021 (Source) — Global Energy Metals Corporation (TSXV:GEMC) | (OTC:GBLEF) | (FSE:5GE1) (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or “GEMC”) is pleased to announce the signing of a definitive agreement (the “Definitive Agreement”) to acquire a strategic interest in the Råna Nickel-Copper-Cobalt project including the past-producing Bruvann Nickel Mine in the Råna mafic-ultramafic intrusion in Northern Norway (“The Råna Project”). Additionally, and as part of the transaction, GEMC will acquire a 1% royalty on the Net Smelter Returns from the Property (the “NSR”) from Chincherinchee Nominee Pty Ltd. (the “Royalty Holder”).
Mitchell Smith, CEO & Director of GEMC commented:
“The Råna Project is located in one of the world’s most opportune nickel districts. In addition to further exploration potential and resource scaling, it has the strategic benefit of being in close proximity to, and serving as a potential future supply source for, an emerging European battery manufacturing hub in Norway and the Scandinavian Peninsula.”
“The signing of this definitive agreement for a strategic interest and royalty on the Råna Project and past-producing Bruvann Nickel Mine is a major milestone for the Company and an active step towards our goal of serving the green energy value chain.”
With a limited number of quality nickel sulphide projects available worldwide, the Råna Project represents one of the few drill-ready, low capex Class-1 nickel opportunities globally that has strong mining potential and exploration upside and presents as an opportunity as a future source of material suitable for the rechargeable battery sector. For further details on the terms of the acquisition and the highlights of the Råna Project and past-producing Bruvann Nickel Mine, please refer to the Company’s news release dated February 17, 2021.
