Global Atomic Corporation ("Global Atomic" or the "Company"), (TSX: GLO) (OTCQX: GLATF) (FRA: G12) is pleased to announce The Presidential Decree granting the Mining Permit has been approved by the Council of Ministers for the Company's Dasa Uranium Project.

President & CEO of Global Atomic, Stephen G. Roman , stated, " We are excited to report the receipt of a Mining Permit for the Company's flagship discovery, Dasa, and acknowledge the  tremendous achievements of our Niger and Toronto based teams and completion of this truly important milestone. The early receipt of the Mining Permit is testament to the relationships we've  built with the Government of Niger since we entered the country in 2005 and Niger's support for its domestic uranium mining industry. With this Permit and continuing positive results from our ongoing work programs, we are enthusiastically advancing the Dasa Project, now completing the final design and engineering required to build the Project. "

About the Dasa Uranium Project

The Mining Permit issued by the Niger Government provides approval for the Company to mine the Dasa uranium deposit based on the Development Plan submitted to Government in September. The Company intends to initiate production based on the "Phase I" operations scenario outlined in the PEA released May 2020 , key elements as below:

  • 12 year, Phase I operation, producing 44 million lbs U 3 O 8 at 5,396 parts per million (0.54%)
  • Annual production of 4.4 million pounds U 3 O 8
  • Cash cost of $16.72 per pound
  • All-in sustaining cost (AISC) of $18.39 per pound
  • After-tax NPV 8 of $211-million and after-tax IRR of 26.6 per cent

Our Phase I mine plan targets high-grade mineralization starting 70 metres below surface and provides a low capex route to production using conventional underground mining and processing technology. The Phase I mine plan also provides ready access to the overall contained uranium inventory of over 200 million pounds in the mine's deeper horizons.

The compelling economics of the Dasa Project allow us to go into production at a time when market fundamentals are increasingly bullish and supportive of higher uranium prices. Key highlights of the Dasa Project are:

  • Large, high-grade uranium deposit
  • Clean metallurgy with excellent leachability and recovery
  • Readily available, experienced local workforce
  • Good infrastructure, near existing production
  • Republic of Niger is the world's 5 th largest uranium producer

Are Thorium Reactors the Future of Nuclear Energy?

The world’s energy needs are expected to skyrocket thanks to population growth and higher demand from developing nations, making thorium reactors increasingly appealing.

Nuclear energy is considered by some to be green energy because it does not produce direct carbon dioxide emissions, unlike fossil fuels, which contribute to air and water pollution.

Over the last decade, more countries around the world have turned to nuclear as an energy source, integrating nuclear energy into their energy grids, specifically to produce electricity.
