Global Atomic Corporation ("Global Atomic" or the "Company"), (TSX: GLO) (OTCQX: GLATF) (FRANKFURT: G12) is pleased to report the latest corporate developments including drilling results and project financing progress.

Stephen G. Roman , President and CEO commented, "Global Atomic continues to move forward on developing and expanding the Dasa Project.  The recent drilling continues to enhance what is already the largest, highest-grade uranium deposit under development in Africa.  We continue to receive confirmation for new mining equipment to be delivered concurrent with the start-up of our underground development in Q4,  and now, with interest from Export Development Canada, we have moved another step closer to our goal of completing project financing for the Dasa Project this year.  Project financing, initial off-take agreements and the formation of our Niger mining subsidiary are all catalysts that our shareholders should expect us to complete in the near term."

Project Financing

Global Atomic has received a Letter of Interest ("LOI") from Export Development Canada ("EDC"), confirming their interest in working with the Company in regard to the financing of the Dasa Uranium Project in the Republic of Niger.  EDC is open to partnering with other export credit agencies, commercial banks and/or financial institutions as co-lenders and to have a lead role in the structuring of the debt facility.  EDC has indicated a potential participation, at typical bank rates, for a greenfield mining project, of up to US$75 million , to form the cornerstone of what is expected to be a syndicate of three banks.

The Company expects to complete the Dasa Project financing arrangements in Q4 2022.  Any potential EDC underwriting is subject to acceptable financing terms and conditions and is also subject to satisfactory due diligence including the completion of an environmental and social review pursuant to EDC's Environmental and Social Risk Management Framework, which includes EDC's Environmental and Social Review Directive and the Equator Principles.

Dasa Project Drilling Program

The 15,000-meter drill program at the Dasa Project continues to build on the results disclosed in  the January 19, 2022 news release ( Positive Initial Report for Dasa Project 2021/2022 Drill Program ).  A further 10 holes have been drilled representing approximately 6,000 metres with the following significant intercepts:

These drill results indicate that the four mining zones 2a, 2b and 3 now represent a contiguous ore body approximately three times larger than initially defined in the Feasibility Study Mine Plan.

Four additional holes outside this ore body did not intersect economic mineralization.

Dasa Longitudinal Section N60 (CNW Group/Global Atomic Corporation)

As the next step to compiling these drill results into a new Mineral Resource Estimate ("MRE") for Dasa, the Company has engaged Dmitry Pertel of AMC Consultants of Perth , Australia.  Mr. Pertel completed all the previous work on the Dasa Project while with CSA Global and will work with the Company on the new MRE which will form the basis of a  new Mine Plan , both of which are planned for completion in Q4 2022.

Uranium Stocks: 5 Biggest Companies in 2022

Uranium is an important commodity in the energy sector. As the value of this nuclear fuel has continued to rise, investors have become more interested in the uranium market.

Uranium began this year at US$39.50 per pound, and prices tracked much higher during the first quarter, pushing the energy fuel to an 11 year high of US$63.50 in mid-April.

Various factors have pushed prices upward. Production declines caused by COVID-19-related closures in 2020 have played a role, as has the widespread demand for nuclear power as a clean energy source.
