Boucherville, Quebec, CANADA


MONTREAL, Oct. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Geomega Resources Inc. (“Geomega” or the “Corporation”) (TSX.V: GMA) (OTC: GOMRF), a developer of clean technologies for the mining, refining and recycling of rare earths, is pleased to announce that its common shares have been upgraded to trade on the OTCQB Venture Market (the “OTCQB”), operated by the OTC Market Group, New York. The Corporation’s U.S. shares will continue trading under its current U.S. symbol “GOMRF”.

The Corporation’s Canadian trading symbol remains unchanged and will continue to trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol “GMA”.

The OTCQB is the premier venture marketplace for early-stage and developing U.S. and international companies that are committed to providing a high-quality trading and information experience for their U.S. investors.

“We are very pleased to commence trading on the OTCQB. This listing will broaden our shareholder base in the U.S. and aligns with our corporate objective to offer a rare earths recycling solution to the U.S. which due to its dependence on imports of neodymium magnets, has significant national security implications.” commented Kiril Mugerman, President and CEO of Geomega.

About Geomega (www.geomega.ca)
Geomega develops innovative technologies for extraction and separation of rare earth elements and other critical metals essential for a sustainable future. With a focus on renewable energies, vehicle electrification, automation and reduction in energy usage, rare earth magnets or neo-magnets (NdFeB) are at the center of all these technologies. Geomega’s strategy revolves around gradually de-risking its innovative technology and delivering cashflow and return value to shareholders while working directly with the main players in these industries to recycle the magnets that power all those technologies.

As its technologies are demonstrated on larger scales, Geomega is committed to work with major partners to help extract value from mining feeds, tailings and other industrial residues which contain rare earths and other critical metals. Irrespective of the metal or the source, Geomega adopts a consistent approach to reduce the environmental impact and to contribute to lowering greenhouse gases emissions through recycling the major reagents in the process.

Geomega’s core project is based around the ISR Technology (Innord’s Separation of Rare Earths), a proprietary, low-cost, environmentally friendly way to tap into a C$1.5 billion global market to recycle magnet production waste and end of life magnets profitably and safely.

Geomega also owns the Montviel rare earth carbonatite deposit, the largest 43-101 bastnaesite resource estimate in North America and holds over 16.8M shares, representing approximately 16% of the issued and outstanding shares, of Kintavar Exploration Inc. (KTR.V), a mineral exploration company that is exploring for copper projects in Quebec, Canada.
