T.GLO Provides Early Update to Kick Off 2024

Global Atomic Corporation (“Global Atomic” or the “Company”) (TSX: GLO, OTCQX: GLATF, FRANKFURT: G12) announced today several corporate updates as the Company advances its Dasa uranium project in the Republic of Niger.

Completion of Third Off-Take Agreement

Global Atomic has formalized the Letter of Intent announced in October 2023 by signing a Definitive Agreement for the sale of 350,000 lbs uranium per annum from the Company’s Dasa Project in the Republic of Niger.  This is the third such agreement signed by the Company, having formalized similar agreements in January and May of 2023 and brings the Company’s current contracted volume to approximately 1.5 million pounds U3O8 per annum over Dasa’s initial five years of operation.  With the completion of this Agreement, Global Atomic has satisfied the “pre-sales” requirement of its banking syndicate.

Updated Feasibility Study

The Company is nearing completion of an update of the Feasibility Study (“FS”) originally released in 2021.  The updated FS will incorporate an updated Mineable Reserve as well as current engineering design and costs and be based on the current uranium pricing environment. The Company will release the updated FS in Q1, 2024.

Dasa Mine Achieves 500 days of operation without a Lost Time Injury (LTI)

In a remarkable display of commitment to safety and teamwork, the DASA Mine, operated by SOMIDA and overseen by Global Atomic Corporation, has achieved a significant milestone: 500 days without a Lost Time Injury. This achievement underlines the mine’s unwavering dedication to creating a safe work environment and its success in implementing effective safety measures.
