An agreement has been signed with a drilling contractor for the program.

The Werner Lake resource is open in all directions.

Updated technical report

Global Energy Metals Corp has filed an updated Canadian NI 43-101 technical report for the project.

It incorporates non-material changes to the resource estimate requested by the British Columbia Securities Commission as part of a routine review.

The updated report supersedes the original report dated September 6, 2017.

Existing mineralisation occurs in stacked lenses that tend to occupy tensional areas intruded by gabbroic pegmatites to produce skarnoid assemblages.

They occur over a distance of about 10 kilometres, extending from the Eastern Shallows Cobalt Deposit on the east side of Gordon Lake to the West Cobalt Deposit 500 metres west of the Werner Lake Old Mine Deposit.
