Global Atomic provides a profitable and unique combination of high-grade uranium development and cash-flowing zinc concentrate production.

The Company aims to start uranium production at the Tier 1 Dasa deposit, in the Republic of Niger by the end of 2025 for sale of yellowcake to utilities starting in early 2026. In addition, Global Atomic has a 49% stake in the BST steel dust recycling operation in Turkey that produces zinc concentrate and provides financial leverage to minimize equity dilution.

Global Atomic owns 80% of the Dasa project, a sandstone-hosted uranium deposit first discovered by Company geologists in 2010. Dasa is the largest highest-grade uranium deposit discovered in Africa since the 1970s and is currently under development.

In December 2020, Dasa received its mining permit from the Government of Niger. In January 2021, Dasa received its Environmental Compliance Certificate and is now fully permitted.

In 2021 and 2022 Global Atomic completed 16,000 meters of additional drilling. The primary objective was to convent Inferred Resources to the Indicated category through infill drilling as well as to create a contiguous ore body of Indicated Resources and improve project economics. Based on the results of this drilling program, a revised Mineral Resource Estimate (“MRE”) was completed in early 2023, in which Dasa’s Indicated Resources increased by 50% using a cut-off grade of 1,500 ppm.

The revised Dasa Feasibility Study announced in March 2024 incorporated the 2023 MRE and updated costs from detailed engineering. The 2024 mine plan uses a base uranium price of $US75 per pound targeting profitable production of over 68 million pounds U3O8 over a 23-year mine life.

The excavation of a Box Cut for ramp access to the Dasa Project was completed in 2022. Underground development has been underway since the beginning of 2023, with over 950 meters completed as of the end of Q1 2024. Mine development is now continuing down dip in the footwall of the orebody.

Surface infrastructure and a mining work force are in place to support mine development. Detailed engineering is nearing completion and project financing for the construction of the processing plant is well advanced.

Global Atomic also holds a 49% interest in the Befesa Silvermet Turkey, S.L. (“BST”) Joint Venture, which operates a modern zinc production plant located in Iskenderun, Turkey. The plant recovers zinc from Electric Arc Furnace Dust (“EAFD”) to produce a high-grade zinc oxide concentrate which is sold to zinc smelters around the world. The Company’s joint venture partner is Befesa S.A. (“Befesa”), the market leader in EAFD recycling, capturing approximately 50% of the European EAFD market with facilities located throughout Europe, Asia and the United States. Befesa holds a 51% interest in and is the operator of the BST Joint Venture.
