United Battery Metals could be in a prime position to meet US demand with its wholly controlled Wray Mesa project in the UraVan district of Colorado. This year the USGS added vanadium to its list of strategic elements, meaning the Wray Mesa project could become incredibly important to the United States and its national interests as the country focuses on developing its own domestic resources.

Wray Mesa has a chance to become the next major source of vanadium in the United States. According to a 43-101 prepared in 2013, Wray Mesa is sitting on an estimated resource of 2,640,000 pounds of vanadium. The property is also close to the town of La Salle, which has access to established roads, and municipal water only six miles away.

About United Battery Metals Corp.

United Battery Metals Corp. is a vanadium exploration company focused on the exploration of its Wray Mesa project, an exploration stage vanadium property located in Utah and Colorado, USA, and the acquisition of additional properties with vanadium-discovery potential.
