Global Atomic Corporation (“Global Atomic” or the “Company”), (TSX: GLO) (OTCQX: GLATF) (FSE: G12) is pleased to announce it has entered into an Agreement with Fuel Link Limited (“Fuel Link”), to provide uranium marketing services to the Company.
Fuel Link was founded by Mr Bahi Sivalingam in 2005, subsequent to his departure from Rio Tinto Plc. While at Rio Tinto, Bahi was a Board member and Marketing Director of Rio Tinto Mineral Services Limited and responsible for the sales from the Rössing Uranium Mine, a 10 million pound per year uranium operation located in Namibia , Africa . Post Rio Tinto, Bahi was Director of Business Development for TradeTech, one of the Uranium industry’s leading market analysis and price reporters. For the eight years to 2020 he held the position of Commercial Director for TradeTech Energy, a US-based trading company, providing nuclear fuel supply solutions to the global market.
Over the past 23 years, Bahi has gained extensive knowledge of the uranium market and has developed commercial relationships with counterparties in all the major trading regions covering Europe , America and Asia .
Based in the UK, Fuel Link is well positioned to provide the Company with the global marketing reach it requires as the Dasa Project is readied for production. Fuel Link joins Global Atomic at a pivotal time with Dasa having recently obtained its Mining Permit and Environmental Compliance Certificate.
Stephen G. Roman , Global Atomic President & CEO stated , “Bahi brings years of uranium sales and marketing experience to Global Atomic. As our operations team plan the development of the Dasa Mine, Bahi will be introducing our Company to nuclear power utilities around the world. We expect this focused marketing strategy will make Global Atomic a household name in the nuclear fuel business and a go-to Company for reliable yellowcake supplies.”
Bahi Sivalingam , Fuel Link Principal stated , “Following a due diligence exercise it was clear that the Dasa Mine will be an excellent fit for Fuel Link and the industry. There is no other asset in Africa that boasts the same premium ore grades and associated economics. As new reactor builds accelerate and world inventories diminish the market will transition towards new production. Utilities will be seeking viable projects of sufficient scale to provide valuable diversity and competition and the Dasa Project checks all the boxes. I am delighted to be associated with this Project and look forward to supporting the Global Atomic team.”
Global Atomic also announces the appointment of Igor Kraev , CPA, CGA, MBA as Controller effective February 16 , 2021.
Igor Kraev comes to Global Atomic after 10 years with Uranium One, one of the world’s largest uranium producers, where he held the positions of Manager, Marketing and Contracts Admistration for 7 years and prior to that, Senior Corporate Analyst. He specializes in mining and metals, energy, accounting and finance.
President and CEO Stephen Roman commented, ” We are very pleased to have Igor join Global Atomic. Not only will he add valuable financial expertise, he also brings a wealth of knowledge about uranium marketing having played a key role in Uranium One’s marketing team that managed a $2 billion sales and purchases portfolio. His accounting acumen will also be helpful in the management of our budgets for the feasibility study due for completion in Q3 this year, as well as the contruction of the Dasa Project which we expect to begin early next year. ”
Igor Kraev shared his thoughts about joining the Company, ” Global Atomic is a perfect fit for my knowledge and experience of uranium production and marketing. I am excited to join this team with its long history of mining, working knowledge of uranium and familiarity with operating in West Africa. With its high-grade low-cost Dasa Project advancing rapidly towards construction, underpinned by the long-term cash flow from its recycling business, Global Atomic is well positioned to take advantage of rising global demand for uranium.”
