Marvel Discovery Corp. (TSX-V:MARV)(Frankfurt:O4T1)(OTCQB:MARVF); (the "Company") is pleased to announce New Marvel Energy a wholly owned subsidiary to the Corporation is moving ahead on a design study for standardized nuclear fuel for small modular nuclear reactors (SMR) for use in land and energy including long range space flight

Canada has one of the most promising markets for SMR technology, the potential value of for SMRs in Canada is valued at $ 5.3B by 2040, globally the SMR market is much bigger at $150B by 2040. Typically, SMRs have a power capacity of 300MW(e) per unit making it ideal as it produces large amounts of low to no carbon electricity.

  • Small, a fraction of the size of conventional nuclear power reactors.
  • Modular, as components can be factory assembled and transported to a location for assembly.
  • Reactors, harnessing nuclear fission to generate heat to produce energy.

One of the challenges to accelerating access to energy is infrastructure due limited grid coverage in rural areas, costs associated to grid connection for rural electrification makes SMRs one of the only viable solutions available. The Canadian government through its Strategic Investment Fund is focusing efforts in the sector investing in its third SMR technology company at USD$ 21.6M in Westinghouse Electric Canada to support its eVinci microreactor. Four provinces; Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, Ontario, and Alberta have pushed ahead with plans to build small reactors to supply power. Conventional reactors deliver 1000 megawatts of energy, SMRs generate between 200-300 megawatts enough to power about 300,000 homes. Canada's Athabasca has the ability to ensure Canadian's energy independence and is uniquely positioned to provide uranium to fuel SMRs.

"As our government moves swiftly with our green economic recovery, we are laying the foundation for a better and more prosperous climate-oriented future. Westinghouse's innovative technology will help deliver cleaner energy sources across Canada, especially in remote communities. This investment will play a critical role in fighting climate change, building on Canada's global leadership in SMRs and securing

Jobs in Ontario's energy sector." - The Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry.

"Canada must rapidly develop and deploy low-carbon energy technologies in order to meet our environmental and economic objectives. Small modular reactors provide an opportunity to generate non-emitting energy for communities while attracting investments in Canadian businesses and creating jobs for Canadian workers." - The Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources.

The Company is also working with researchers to complete a design study for TRISO which stands for TRI-Structural ISOtropic fuel. Each Triso particle is made up of uranium carbon and oxygen fuel kernel. The Kernel is encapsulated by three layers of carbon -and ceramic based materials that prevent radioactive fission products.

These particles are incredibly small (about the size of a poppy seed) and very robust. TRISO fuels are structurally more resistant to neutron irradiation, corrosion, oxidation, and high temperature. The triple coated particle acts as vault as its own containment system. TRISO particles cannot melt in a reactor and can handle extreme heat due to their resistance to melting, making it an ideal fuel for space flight.

Marvel Acquires Victoria Southwest - Contiguous to Falcon Gold, Buchans-Benton JV

Marvel Acquires Victoria Southwest - Contiguous to Falcon Gold, Buchans-Benton JV

Marvel Discovery Corp. (TSXV:MARV)(Frankfurt:O4T)(OTCQB:MARVF); (the "Company") is pleased to announce it has acquired, via staking, additional ground west of Valentine Lake. This new land position called Victoria Southwest (the "Property") consists of 253 claims (6,325 hectares) and is contiguous to Falcon Gold Corp, Benton Resources, Buchan Minerals Corp and a significant land package staked by Shawn Ryan. The Property lies 40 kilometers (km) west of the Valentine gold deposit and 65km southwest of the town of Buchans. The Valentine gold deposit which hosts 6.8 million ounces of gold (Moz. Au) (all categories) and is now under development (https:marathon-gold.comvalentine-gold-project). Falcon has immediate plans to commence high resolution magnetic surveys upon approval of exploration permits

In early 2011, Buchans Minerals and Benton Resources completed prospecting activities in the immediate area that identified abundant mineralized quartz vein material containing trace to several percent sulphides. Analytical results of the grab samples assayed between 1.65 to 18.24 g/t Au and between 5.4 to 87.1 g/t Ag in subcrop samples. Grab samples from outcrop assayed up to 8.52 g/t Au and 30.7 g/t Ag. (Grab samples are selected samples and not necessarily representative of the mineralization hosted on the property). Of considerable interest within this immediate area are float samples consisting of angular boulders which showed up to 106.4 g/t Au and 364.3 g/t Ag. It does not appear that any of the follow-up work within this area was able to determine the source of this high-grade sample.

5 Basic Facts About Gold

5 Basic Facts About Gold

Gold has diverse uses, and throughout history it has been widely used in art, jewelry and technology.

But the precious metal has also long been considered a safe haven, and as a result many investors turn towards it during tough political and economic times. Physical gold bullion coins are a common way to get exposure, but other ways to jump into the space are exchange-traded funds (ETFs), gold futures, options and gold company stocks.

Gold is arguably a solid long-term investment, so those new to the sector will be curious to know more about the yellow metal before jumping into the market. Here are five basic facts about gold that all investors should know.
