About the Concessions
Through this agreement the company acquires a 100% interest in 7 Mineral Reservations covering approximately 3,106.5 kmas outlined in the Table and Map at the end of the press release and described more fully below.
Kontti and Kontti 2 Reservations
These reservations are underlain by a series of approximately 1.8 billion year old granitoids, including S-type “microcline” granites intruding migmatites and metasedimentary rocks of the Central Lapland Granitoid Complex and hosting numerous pegmatite occurrences. These reservations are considered prospective for battery and rare metals (Lithium, Cesium and Tantalum), and rare earth elements (Ytrium, Niobium and Fluorine) among others.
This reservation in the northern part of the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt (CLGB) is also underlain by a series of approximately 1.8 billion year old granitoids, including 2 mica granites intruding meta-sedimentary and meta-volcanic rocks and pegmatites. This reservation is considered prospective for battery and rare metals (Lithium, Cesium and Tantalum), and rare earth elements (Ytrium, Niobium and Fluorine) among others.
Mairivaara and Nousu Reservations
These reservations are underlain by mafic and ultramafic volcanic rocks and sedimentary rocks of the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt (CLGB) and are considered prospective for precious and base metals.
This reservation is underlain primarily by mafic and ultramafic igneous rocks in the Eastern portion of the CLGB and is considered prospective for base (N-Cu-Co) and precious metals.
This reservation is underlain primarily by meta-sedimentary rocks of the Pohjaanma Schist Belt which hosts the Kaustinen Li-Pegmatite cluster of deposits, currently under development and lies within 25 km of Keliber Oys Battery Metal Processing Plant in Kokkola, Finland. This reservation is contiguous with the Lappajarvi Reservation which is the subject of an agreement between the company and Capella Minerals Limited (See press release dated March 20, 2023). This reservation is considered prospective for battery and rare metals (Lithium, Cesium and Tantalum), and rare earth elements (Ytrium, Niobium and Fluorine) among others.
Commented Jeremy Poirier, President and CEO of European Energy Metals, “With this acquisition we will control over 5,000 km of mineral reservations considered highly prospective for lithium, battery and rare metals potential. As Finland is becoming an emerging global leader in the space with its progressive Critical Minerals Policies and Lithium supply-chain infrastructure development we are now a well positioned, major hard-rock lithium explorer in Finland.”
