Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / December 5, 2017 / Global Energy Metals Corp. TSXV:GEMC | FSE:5GE1 (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or “GEMC”) announces a strategic partnership with UK based Glenpani Capital Limited. Glenpani has introduced experienced high net worth investors within the natural resource sector to participate in the previously announced private placement and will provide continued market support.
Glenpani will aid the GEMC team in their efforts to expand GEMC’s exposure to UK capital through its significant network of high net worth and institutional investors interested in the cobalt and battery metals spaces.
In addition, Glenpani will work with GEMC to introduce projects that meet the company’s acquisition framework. GEMC is currently reviewing project information for energy metal opportunities in strategic jurisdictions in Australia, including the Pilbara region, and in North America.
“I am excited to welcome London based Glenpani Capital as a valuable and strategic partner,” commented GEMC President and CEO Mitchell Smith. “This new relationship will further enhance our market presence in the UK and allow us to accelerate growth through access to additional capital and project generation.”
Glenpani Capital Directors, Paul Johnson & Burns Singh T Bhohi commented, “We began speaking with Global Energy Metals some months ago, Mitchell and the team have been receptive, engaged and excellent communicators.
Natural resource equity markets have been through a challenging period, for many years. The past 12-months has seen the reintroduction of capital, improved liquidity conditions and is readying for what we believe will be a powerful move.
Cobalt is becoming a supply-deficient metal within commercial and social economies and is driving, increasing Electric Vehicle demand. Consumer demand is a considerable variable when assessing natural resource opportunities and cobalt projects of merit will attract broad market participants. GEMC’s acquisition mandate is refined and the company’s developmental processes are conducive to delivering value to shareholders and creating, broader market interest. Mitchell and the people behind GEMC have been developing a cobalt mandate for nearly 10-years and Glenpani are excited to be working with the team.”
As announced previously, the proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for resource expansion and exploration drilling at the Company's recently announced option for the Millennium Cobalt project in Mt. Isa, Australia and be used for general corporate and working capital requirements.
The main aims of the program have been structured to maximise drill meterage and increase the resource tonnage and confidence of the JORC resource categorisation from inferred to indicated. The Company believes that the project can be grown substantially and this work program will form the basis for further advancement.
On October 11, 2017, GEMC announced a Private Placement for up to $1 million to fund the development of the Millennium Cobalt Project.
