Alaska Energy Metals secures option to acquire Quebec nickel-copper project

Global Mining Review,

Alaska Energy Metals Corporation has announced it has entered into an agreement, pursuant to which it will be granted an option to acquire 100% interest in the 57-claim, 3320 ha. Bambino nickel-copper platinum group element (PGE) property located in the Temiscaming Region of western Quebec, from a Quebec prospecting syndicate.

The Property is located directly adjacent to the Company’s 100%-owned Angliers-Belleterre property acquired in 2023.


  • The Bambino property is adjacent to AEMC’s Angliers-Belleterre claim block and constructively adds to the property position.
  • The combined claims are underlain by thick basalt flow interlayered with gabbro sills and komatiite flows in a regional setting thought to include a mantle plume, and prospective for Kambalda or Raglan-style high-grade nickel mineralisation.
  • Significant copper-nickel-PGE prospects Midrim and Alotta, held by Pivotal Metals Ltd., are located on adjacent claims.
  • AEMC’s exploration programme is fully funded and will commence immediately. The programme consists of approximately 4000 soil samples, prospecting, and a VTEM electromagnetic survey.

“Our Nikolai nickel project in Alaska, which hosts the Eureka deposit, already contains one of the largest known nickel resources in the US. We intend to acquire Bambino so that we can further expand our contribution of nickel and other strategic metals to the rapidly growing lithium-ion battery industry and also the long-term energy storage industry in North America,” said Gregory Beischer, CEO of Alaska Energy Metals. “We are excited and ready to begin exploration in Quebec as we know these projects could further position AEMC as a leading producer of critical minerals in the North American market at a time when these commodities are going to be in even higher demand than they are today.”
