MegaWatt Metals Highlights Uranium Sector and Domestic Demand Opportunities

MegaWatt Lithium and Battery Metals Corp. (CSE:MEGA) (FSE: WR20) (OTCQB: WALRF) has announced an update on long-term uranium sector drivers, America’s plan for domestic uranium, and Canada’s leading role in uranium exploration and mining.

Uranium Prices and America’s Plan

Uranium prices hit a 16-year high in February 2024. America has a $4.3 billion plan to buy uranium from domestic producers, aiming to support its nuclear power generation.

MegaWatt’s Strategic Acquisition

MegaWatt’s CEO Casey Forward stated, “Our agreement to acquire Labrador Mineral Resources Inc. and their Canada-based Benedict Mountains Uranium Property is timely and marks a significant milestone in advancing our commitment to becoming a domestic, clean-energy minerals supplier.”

Global Nuclear Power Generation

The number of countries turning to nuclear energy is growing. Global nuclear power generation is expected to break records in 2025. Significant contributions are expected from new reactors in China, India, Korea, and Europe.

US Nuclear Power Strength

As the world’s largest producer of nuclear power, the US accounts for about 30% of global nuclear energy. America has 94 operable nuclear reactors and is committed to advancing its nuclear energy sector with substantial earmarks and incentives.

Canada’s Position in Uranium Exploration

Canada, a top uranium exploration region, focuses on Saskatchewan’s Athabasca Basin and Labrador’s Central Mineral Belt. Labrador’s Central Mineral Belt is home to the significant Michelin deposit and several other high-grade uranium deposits.

MegaWatt’s New Opportunities

MegaWatt has acquired the Benedict Mountains Uranium Property, which consists of 2 mineral licenses covering approximately 350 hectares in Labrador’s Central Mineral Belt. This move positions MegaWatt to benefit from the growing uranium sector while advancing its goal of being a clean-energy minerals supplier.
