Global Energy Metals Corporation TSXV:GEMC | OTCQB:GBLEF | FSE:5GE1 (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or “GEMC”) is pleased to announce that the Company has made its first option payment, as part of the agreement with Nevada Sunrise Gold Corp., to acquire an 85% interest in the Lovelock Cobalt Mine, under-explored for its high-grade cobalt-nickel-copper potential, and the adjacent Treasure Box Project (refer to January 21, 2019 news release). GEMC has issued 384,627 common shares of the Company to Nevada Sunrise and paid USD$20,000 to the underlying vendor.

The program will assist with an ongoing extensive review and reinterpretation of historical data.
“There has been a tremendous amount of attention placed on the US for it to stop being merely a bystander in the global battery arms race and start developing more domestic supplies of battery metals such as cobalt, nickel and copper to supply its homegrown battery factories, including Nevada-based Gigafactory 1,” commented Mitchell Smith, Director & CEO. “The Lovelock and Treasure Box projects are prime examples of US-based battery metal projects that are very prospective and strategically located in close proximity to a domestic end-user with a large appetite for the critical materials used in EV and energy storage technology.”
Mr. Paul Sarjeant, P. Geo., the Company’s QP and Director, is the qualified person for this release as defined by National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects and has reviewed and verified the technical information contained herein.
