About Pele Mountain Resources
Pele Mountain Resources is focused on developing a world-class mining and processing facility at its 100-percent owned Elliot Lake Uranium Project in Northern Ontario. The project hosts a NI 43-101 compliant inferred resource of over 33 million pounds of U 3 O 8 with the potential for significant near-term upgrade and expansion. Scott Wilson RPA is collaborating with experienced professionals from a wide range of disciplines to lead its recommended technical, economic, and environmental scoping studies.
The Elliot Lake camp was once known as "the uranium capital of the world" and has produced more than 270 million pounds of U 3 O 8 from stratigraphically-bound deposits that demonstrate remarkable consistency over extensive areas. The uranium market is currently experiencing unprecedented price gains due to surging global demand and increasingly uncertain supply.
Pele also holds a diverse portfolio of gold, diamond, and base metal projects located across Northern Ontario, including the Highland Project where drilling has outlined several high-grade, narrow-vein gold zones within an historic mining camp. Through project generation and mineral discovery, Pele provides shareholders with exposure and leverage to the ongoing bull market in natural resources. Pele stock trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "GEM".
