Vancouver, March 6, 2023 - OBERON URANIUM ("Oberon" or the "Company") (CSE:OBRN) is pleased to announce that it has signed a letter of intent dated March 6, 2023 (the "LOI") with 2037881 AB Ltd. ("2037881 AB") in respect of a proposed transaction (the "Proposed Transaction") under which Oberon will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of 2037881 AB. The material assets of 2037881 AB are 23 mineral claims totalling 20,064 hectares near Uranium City, Saskatchewan, Canada, known as the "Fusion Uranium Zone Project", which is prospective for uranium. In addition, 2037881 AB owns uranium extraction technology using a method of in-situ leaching of uranium deposits located in non-porous, impermeable underground formations.
The Fusion Uranium Zone Project has seen extensive drilling and expenditures since 2005, and within meters of the project, crown reserve land of the Government of Saskatchewan has been reported to have significant amounts of uranium. Furthermore, operating costs in Uranium City have been historically low due to existing surrounding infrastructure and road accessibility.
Lawrence Hay, President of Oberon, commented "We are beyond excited to be adding this asset to our portfolio. This project will go a long way in strengthening our position in the uranium space."
The Proposed Transaction
Pursuant to the Proposed Transaction, the Company will issue to an aggregate of 20,000,000 Class A common shares of Oberon (the "Consideration Shares") to the 2037881 AB shareholders at a deemed price per Consideration Share of $0.2025, representing an aggregate purchase price of $4,050,000. The Proposed Transaction will be completed pursuant to available prospectus exemptions in accordance with applicable securities legislation. The mineral claims comprising the Fusion Uranium Zone Project will be subject to a 3% production royalty retained by a shareholder of 2037881 AB. The Company will have the right to buy back the royalty at any time for $1,000,000. Oberon and 2037881 AB have agreed to negotiate in good faith the terms of a definitive agreement with respect to the Proposed Transaction within 90 days.
The Proposed Transaction is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including, as applicable, approval of the CSE, completion of due diligence reasonable or customary in a transaction of a similar nature, and entering into a definitive agreement, among other conditions. The Proposed Transaction would be an arms-length transaction for the Company and would not constitute a fundamental change or result in a change of control of the Company, within the meaning of the policies of the CSE.
