Kivalliq Energy CEO Jim Paterson said:
Kivalliq continually evaluates projects worldwide to increase our exposure to high-quality uranium assets. We believe that the current value proposition of the Baker Basin Property was too great an opportunity to pass up. Our extensive northern exploration experience, as well as our relationships and award winning environmental track record in Nunavut Territory, give Kivalliq a competitive advantage to rapidly advance the Baker Basin Property.
