Expanded higher-grade zones identified for production early in the mine life, which can positively impact project economics.

Pele Mountain’s President and CEO, Al Shefsky, said:

Our recent drilling conclusively demonstrated the down dip continuity of the Eco Ridge deposit and has led to a major increase in NI 43-101 uranium and rare earth resources at the project. The new and expanded Resource Estimate marks another important milestone on the pathway to production at Eco Ridge, as we prepare to transition the project into the licensing and feasibility process.
