Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / February 22, 2022 / Global Energy Metals Corporation TSXV:GEMC | OTCQB:GBLEF | FSE:5GE1 (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or “GEMC”), a company involved in investment exposure to the battery metals supply chain, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a strategic relationship with GoldSpot Discoveries Corp. (TSXV: SPOT, OTCQX: SPOFF) ("GoldSpot") to assist in the advancement of the Company's Treasure Box and Lovelock Mine projects located approximately 150 km (100 miles) east of Reno, Nevada. GoldSpot will utilize its artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to optimize exploration targets, allowing the Company to better focus drilling efforts and unlock value across its significant landholdings in the highly prospective Stillwater Range in Nevada.
Commenting on the relationship, Mitchell Smith, President and CEO stated:
"We are delighted to welcome GoldSpot as a strategic service provider and shareholder of Global Energy Metals. It will be a busy season for our Nevada-based cobalt, copper and nickel projects, and believe the properties will benefit tremendously from the assistance of GoldSpot's technologies and data-driven approach to exploration. We welcome the strong interest and investment into the private placement from GoldSpot and look forward to working with them to evaluate and unlock the potential of both the Treasure Box and Lovelock Mine projects."
Commenting on the partnership with Global Energy Metals, Vincent Dubé-Bourgeois, CEO & Director of GoldSpot Discoveries Corp., stated:
"GoldSpot is excited to be partnering and applying our proprietary technology to Global Energy Metals’ critical metal projects. We believe the market has underestimated the value of the company and that of its strategic property portfolio including those projects in Nevada. The opportunity that the Lovelock Mine and Treasure Box land package holds is substantial and we believe the large number of potential targets on the property are ripe for further analysis and refining under our team's technological and geological guidance."
The Company also announces that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement financing of up to C$1.0 million (the “Offering”). Closing of the Placement is conditional on acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Funds will also be used to support potential future acquisitions as well as for general corporate and working capital purposes allowing for ongoing growth strategy execution.
Certain insiders of Global Energy Metals may participate in the Offering; however, the total participation by insiders is not expected to exceed 25% of the Offering.
