Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 7, 2018) – Global Vanadium Corp. (TSXV: GLV.H) (“Global” or the “Company”). On October 2, 2018, the Company announced that it had entered into an agreement dated September 28, 2018 (the “Agreement”) with the shareholders (the “Vendors”) of all of the issued and outstanding common shares (the “114 Shares”) of 1141717 B.C. Ltd. (“114”).
Under the terms of the Agreement, the Vendors were to receive, pro-rata according to their respective interests in the Shares, a total of Cdn$80,000 (the “Cash Payment”) and 7,000,000 common shares of the Company (the “Company Shares”) as consideration for the purchase of their 114 Shares.
The purpose of the purchase of the 114 Shares was for the Company to purchase 114’s interest in a total of 97 Lode Claims (the “Claims”) in Garfield County, Utah (the “Desert Eagle Project). The Claims comprising the Desert Eagle Project total 2,004 acres and are prospective for vanadium.
On October 10, 2018, the Company began the process of closing the purchase of the 114 Shares with the issuance of the Company Shares and the payment of the Cash Payment. The Company Shares are subject to a four-month Exchange hold period expiring on February 10, 2019. In the process of closing, the Company determined that it wished to assign ownership of the Desert Eagle Project such that, upon closing and release of the Company Shares, it would be the owner of the Desert Eagle Project through a newly incorporated subsidiary of 114, Global Vanadium Nevada, Corp. This process (which involved the incorporation of Global Vanadium Nevada, Corp. and the transfer of the Claims to it) has now been completed.
The Desert Eagle Project is located in Garfield County, Utah, United States. The Project is host to historic vanadium and uranium production beginning in the early 1900’s which has continued erratically and intermittently, most of which was not reported. The project is located in the Trachyte district situated to the east of the Henry Mountains, 95 miles south of Green River, Utah. The project is considered prospective for the development of vanadium due to the high historic grades (up to 28% Vanadium Pentoxide) and high ratios of vanadium over uranium present on the Claims. Mineralization occurs within sandstone of the Salt Wash member of the Jurassic Morrison formation, a rock unit synonymous with vanadium and uranium production across the Colorado Plateau.
The closing of the Agreement and the transactions contemplated by it were subject to the approval of the Company’s filings with the NEX board of the TSX Venture Exchange, which approval was obtained in October, 2018.
The Company is working to complete an NI 43-101 technical report on the Desert Eagle Project and expects that to be forthcoming.
The historic grades referenced in this release have not independently been confirmed by the Company.
The technical information in this release has been reviewed by Adrian Smith, P.Geo, a qualified person as defined by NI 43-101, and an independent consultant to the Company.
