About the Green Giant Vanadium Project
The Company's Green Giant Vanadium Project contains a National Instrument
43-101 compliant ('NI 43-101') indicated resource of 49.5 million tonnes at
an average grade of 0.693% vanadium pentoxide ('V2O5 ') containing 756.3
million pounds of V2O5 and an inferred resource of 9.7 million tonnes at
an average grade of 0.632% V2O5 containing 134.5 million pounds of V2O5.
With this resource estimate, the Green Giant deposit currently ranks as the
third largest known vanadium deposit in the world.
Vanadium is well-established as a strategic metal that strengthens and
hardens alloys like steel and is positioned to play a significant role in
emerging battery technologies such as batteries for electric cars and for
large-scale energy storage. While there are some opportunities for
substitution in steel production, the same is not true for other markets,
including the emerging energy (battery) storage markets, the military and
particularly in the aerospace industry, where vanadium is irreplaceable.

Cautionary Statement: The above resource estimates were calculated in
accordance with National Instrument 43-101 as required by Canadian
securities regulatory authorities. For United States reporting purposes,
Industry Guide 7 (under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934), as
interpreted by the Staff of the SEC, applies different standards in order
to classify mineralization as a reserve. Among other things, the terms
'measured', 'indicated' and 'inferred' mineral resources are required
pursuant to National Instrument 43-101, the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission does not recognize such terms. Canadian standards differ
significantly from the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission, and mineral resource information contained herein is not
comparable to similar information regarding mineral reserves disclosed in
accordance with the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated
economic viability. This mineral resource estimate includes inferred
resources that are normally considered too speculative geologically to have
economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be
categorized as mineral reserves. There is also no certainty that the
inferred mineral resource will be converted to the measured and indicated
mineral resource categories through further drilling, or into a mineral
reserve once economic considerations are applied.
U.S. investors should understand that 'inferred' mineral resources have a
great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and great uncertainty as
to their economic and legal feasibility. In addition, investors are
cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the Company's mineral
resources constitute or will be converted into reserves.

Forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of
