Madison Metals Inc.

TORONTO, Sept. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Madison Metals Inc. (“Madison” or the “Company”) (CSE: GREN) (OTCQB: MMTLF) is pleased to announce the signing of a historic and first-of-its-kind uranium forward sale agreement with Lux Partners Ltd. (“Lux”). Lux operates Lux network, the first decentralized blockchain integrated and operated by a network of regulated banking and money transfer partners. The exclusive five-year supply agreement provides for the delivery of up to 20 million pounds of U3O8 Madison uranium projects in Namibia after the start of commercial production. Fulfillment of the U3O8 delivery would support the first-ever uranium-based non-fungible tokens (“NFT”).

“Having the ability to potentially monetize our uranium resources at a premium using innovative technology provided by industry leaders is a testament to our forward-thinking strategy to create shareholder value,” said Duane. Parnham, executive chairman and CEO of Madison Metals. “We believe there are many advantages to forward selling some of our assets in this way. We expect it to provide non-dilutive capital to explore, develop and operate our properties while generating additional revenue through nominal trading fees.

Parnham continued: “The Lux team has exceptional abilities and a proven experience launch and drive demand for the world’s most innovative products, generating billions of dollars in revenue.

Lux NFTs bring liquidity and universal access to the uranium market and usher in a new era for the tokenization of physical assets and the distribution of the planet’s most valuable resources. Lux Uranium NFTs are to be minted exclusively on the Lux Network but will be made available on all major blockchains through the Lux standard for asset-backed NFTs.

From October 15, 2022 via the luxury market, almost anyone in the world will be able to mint Lux Uranium NFTs. By selling direct to retail, Lux is able to offer buyers the lowest possible price, disintermediating opaque and inefficient financing with transparent and clear pricing.

“We are delighted to form this strategic alliance with Madison’s resource team to support the launch of Lux Uranium and the Lux Network (Lux.Network) of blockchains, which powers NFT minting, trading and staking,” said Zach Kelling, CEO of Lux Partners. “Through staking, users are exposed to the upside of the uranium market while earning additional fees through loans and liquidity. By digitizing assets, Lux hopes to unlock greater price discovery, asset value and liquidity throughout the mining lifecycle.

Lux will initially score £7.65m from U3O8 that Madison contributed to the Lux partnership. This will be followed by a further £12.35m to be minted as market demands. The token sales are intended to generate cash that will be returned to Madison along with royalties from trading fees. Proceeds from Madison’s capital will be used to advance compliant resource/reserve figures, as well as for engineering and economic studies and mining. Madison will also manage a risk assessment program and a hedge portfolio to purchase additional uranium products as needed or when required on a tax-neutral basis.
