Engagement of Fuse Advisors Inc.
Working with Kraken, Fuse will evaluate options for processing uranium ores from the Company’s Apex Mine project, Nevada’s largest past-producing uranium mine. This will include desktop analysis of potential process circuits, as well as economic studies to determine the viability of multiple processing scenarios. Moreover, Fuse will work with Kraken to identify and evaluate, via a multiple accounts analysis, novel solutions to America’s pressing need for domestic uranium supply.
Fuse is an engineering project management and advisory firm, focused exclusively within the mineral resource sector, specializing in due-diligence, strategic planning, economic studies, permitting and construction. Leveraging the team’s uniquely diverse experience, Fuse partners with project owners to manage the delivery of complex, multi-disciplinary projects.
The scope of Fuse’s work with Kraken will also include evaluating additional strategies for uranium production in and around Nevada, including new deposits of conventional and unconventional uranium that can support Kraken’s overall strategy for becoming a significant new supplier of uranium to America’s clean energy buildout.
Both Kraken and Fuse are passionate about finding creative solutions to maximize shareholder value and create positive environmental, social, governance (ESG) outcomes. Fuse’s multiple accounts analysis will assist in finding the next steps for Kraken to become a leader in developing uranium projects in the United States of America. Different business opportunities will be investigated and compared to ascertain the most efficient strategies to advance. Fuse’s deep experience in the mineral resource sector will help Kraken both push the Apex mine forward and develop other opportunities to source uranium for America. Dave Forest, CEO of Kraken, said, “Engaging a top consultancy like Fuse kicks off a project we call ‘Enrich America’. We believe our Apex Mine has all the geological elements to become a leading source of uranium for America. This new work goes a step further, evaluating the technical design and economics of a comprehensive uranium processing strategy built around Nevada, America’s best mining jurisdiction.”
