Madison Metals Provides Update on Namibian Uranium Licensing, The Canadian Business Journal

TORONTO, September 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Madison Metals Inc. (“Madison” or the “Company”) (CSE: GREN) (OTC: MMTLF) has issued a binding letter of intent (“LOI”). In agreement with Otjiwa Mining and Prospecting CC (“Otjiwa”), Madison will acquire an 85% interest in exclusive exploration licenses 8531 (“EPL-8531”) and 8115 (“EPL-8115”) (“Transaction”). ). EPL-8531 and EPL-8115 are located in the famous Elongo Uranium region in Namibia, Africa, where Madison already holds exclusive Exploration License 7011 (“EPL-7011”) rights and owns 24% of the mining industry. We have a contract to acquire a direct interest. License 121 (“ML121”) (Fig. 1). Through this transaction, Madison will consolidate ownership of Uranium State land holdings with the goal of building a minable uranium resource by expanding the currently known uranium zone and making new discoveries. We aim to Namibia is the world’s second largest uranium producer and has the world’s fifth largest total uranium resources.

Otjiwa currently holds an “Intent to Grant” letter from the Ministry of Mines and Energy (“MME”) of Namibia for EPL-8531 and EPL-8115. License approvals and grants are subject to an Environmental Clearance Certificate (“ECC”). The environmental impact assessment scoping study and environmental management plan report to obtain the ECC have already been submitted to the relevant authorities and will be answered shortly.

We are also pleased to announce that we are consolidating our various landholdings as a result of the continued expansion of our uranium fields, coupled with the high potential for common infrastructure. Madison has designated EPL-7011 and EPL-8531 (formerly Rössing North) to be combined under the property name Madison North. Additionally, EPL-8115 and ML121 (formerly Rössing West) will be combined under the property name Madison West.


EPL-8531 is located 50 km northeast of the city of Swakopmund and surrounds the town of Alandis. The Rössing mine is located approximately 50 km east of the facility. The geology consists of lithofacies of the Dammarin Supergroup wrapped around units of the old Ababis metamorphic rocks. As is common within the Welwitschia magnetic lineament deformation corridor, the overall lithological trend is north-northeast. Structurally, the region is characterized by numerous faults, synforms and antiforms (Fig. 2).

Previous operators identified 11 likely targets for further investigation, 5 of which correspond to EPL-8531 (Fig. 3). In 2015, two of the targets were drilled, with a total of 3,720 meters of reverse circulation (RC) drilling from 50 boreholes. Based on this drilling, SRK Consulting (UK) Limited (“SRK”) has produced an Initial Mineral Resource Estimate of intersecting uranium mineralization in accordance with JORC Disclosure Standards. The estimate, dated November 2015, was entitled Estimates of Mineral Resources, EPLS 3524 and 3624, Namibia.

SRK derived an Inferred Mineral Resource estimate of 15.6 Mt grading at 260 ppm U.38For a total metal content of 9.0 Mlbs U38Madison’s attributive ownership of the resources is 7.65 million pounds (Mlbs) U38.

Estimates of SRK are considered “historical estimates” under National Instrument 43-101 – Disclosure Standard for Minerals Projects (“NI 43-101”). We do not consider it current and we do not treat it as such. Qualified personnel have not done enough work to classify historical estimates as current Mineral Resources. Madison must review and validate previous borehole data and conduct exploration programs to validate historical estimates as a current mineral resource.

EPL-8115 is located 42 km east of the city of Swakopmund and spans an area of ​​approximately 61 km.2The facility is located 18 km southwest of the Rossing uranium mine, the world’s longest open pit uranium mine, and 12 km west of the Husab mine (Figure 1). Other nearby properties with NI 43-101 compliant resources include Etango Project to the southwest and Ida Dome to the southeast.

EPL-8115 is unexplored and Madison plans to exploit the potential in this area. Geologically, the project area consists of units of the Ababis metamorphic rocks intruded by white granite. Aircraft radiometric data obtained from the MME show anomalous radiometric features in the northern part of the licensed area (Figure 4). Madison believes that EPL-8115 is very promising for uranium mineralization in chalk granite hosts.
