Bedford Metals Accelerates Due Diligence of Sheppard Lake Uranium Project in Light of Recent Activities in the Area

Share

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bedford Metals Corp. (TSX-V: BFM, FWB: O8D, ISIN: CA0762301012) (the “Company” or “Bedford”) announces that it has accelerated its due diligence on the Sheppard Lake Uranium Project in light of recent activities in the area. The recent takeover offer by Paladin Energy Ltd. for Fission Uranium Corp. has underscored the increasing mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity in the Athabasca Basin, reinforcing Bedford’s belief that the uranium industry in Canada is poised for significant expansion as nuclear energy is likely to play a pivotal role in the clean energy transformation.

The proposed acquisition by Paladin Energy, as reported by CarbonCredits.com on June 26, 2024, highlights the growing strategic importance of uranium in the global energy landscape. The article, titled "Paladin Energy Offers C$1.14 B to Canada’s Fission Uranium. What does it mean for Uranium Mining?" by Saptakee S, notes:

“Australian uranium mining giant Paladin Energy Ltd. has announced a C$1.14 billion ($833 million) all-stock offer to acquire Canadian mining firm Fission Uranium Corp. Using uranium in nuclear power significantly contributes to achieving climate goals by providing reliable energy that reduces the global carbon footprint. Thus, this deal can bring a paradigm shift in uranium mining.”

Peter Born, President of Bedford, commented, “The increased M&A activity in the Athabasca Basin, exemplified by Paladin’s offer for Fission Uranium, is a strong signal of the market’s recognition of uranium’s critical role in the transition to green energy. This reinforces our belief that the Sheppard Lake project and our Ubiquity Lake and Close Lake projects are strategically valuable and warrant accelerated due diligence and exploration efforts.”

The Sheppard Lake Uranium Project, located just south of the Athabasca Basin, is of particular interest to Bedford. The project’s strategic location and the promising results from recent surveys at the neighbouring Ubiquity Lake have strengthened the company’s confidence in its potential. Identifying key uranium markers, such as anomalous helium and methane emissions at Ubiquity Lake, provides a robust foundation for targeted exploration.

Bedford remains committed to conducting all exploration activities to the highest environmental standards. The Company is dedicated to minimizing its environmental footprint and ensuring that all operations are sustainable and responsible. Additionally, Bedford values its relationships with local communities and indigenous groups and is committed to working collaboratively to ensure that its activities bring positive benefits to these stakeholders.

As the demand for clean energy solutions continues to grow, Bedford is poised to play a significant role in the global transition towards sustainable resource development. The Company will continue to leverage innovative techniques and ramp up its exploration efforts to maximize the value of its uranium projects and contribute to the world’s green energy future.

Dr. Peter Born, P.Geo., is the designated qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and the president of the Company and is responsible for and has approved the technical information contained in this release.
