Alaska Energy Metals Corporation (TSXV: AEMC) (OTCQB: AKEMF) (FRA: V7F) is focused on delineating and developing a large polymetallic exploration target containing nickel, copper, cobalt, chrome, iron, platinum, palladium, and gold. The Nikolai Nickel Project, located in Interior Alaska near existing transportation and power infrastructure, the project is well-situated to become a significant, domestic source of critical and strategic energy-related metals for the American market. Additionally, the Company is advancing exploration on the Angliers Nickel Project in Western Quebec.

Located in Central Alaska, the Nikolai project is a sulphide nickel and battery metal project with a multi-billion pound nickel potential.
The Nikolai project holds promising potential as a reliable domestic source of nickel for the ongoing energy transition. Based on historical drilling, there are strong indications of a significant nickel deposit and other valuable metals.
By conducting an initial drilling program that was completed in Fall 2023, we aim to establish a maiden Inferred Resource.
Our goal is to achieve this milestone by Spring 2024.
Historical drilling indicates potential for a very large accumulation of nickel and other important metals.
An initial drilling program to be completed by Fall 2023 should result in a maiden Inferred Resource. If historic concentrations are proven the resource should exceed one billion pounds of contained nickel.
Nickel is a key component of rechargeable batteries. The world is rapidly adopting electric vehicles, and thus the demand for nickel is growing quickly.
The company is well-financed and partnered with Commodity Partners to connect the company with with quality financial backers
Alaska is a pro-resource development state with efficient permitting processes and mandates the development of resources.
Mr. Beischer and the team of exploration geologists and support staff are experts at executing mineral exploration projects in Alaska.
The Nikolai project hosts Ni-Cu-Co-Cr-PGE mineralization.
Several deposit types are possible:
Two separate, adjacent claims blocks encompass the Nikolai project.
The Eureka claim block consists of 104 State of Alaska mining claims (6,734 hectares) and is 100% owned by Alaska Energy Metals.
The Canwell claim block consists of 42 State of Alaska mining claims (2,720 hectares), with an option to purchase 100% interest in the claims from the underlying owner. In total, the project covers 94.54 km2 (9,454 hectares). Geology and Mineralization
The project is located within the underexplored Wrangellia Terrane of Central Alaska. A characteristic component of this terrane is the Nikolai Greenstone, an extensive sequence of low-grade metamorphosed Late Triassic flood basalt rocks. Mafic and ultramafic intrusions, the source for the Nikolai Greenstone, along with Permian and Cretaceous felsic plutons, intruded Permian volcanic and volcaniclastic rocks. Wrangellia holds high potential for the discovery of economic magmatic sulfide deposits containing nickel, copper, cobalt, platinum, palladium, iridium, rhodium, osmium, ruthenium, gold, silver, lead, and zinc. Past producing mines and known deposits within the Wrangellia include Kennecott Copper Mines, Windy Craggy, Wellgreen-Nickel Shaw, and White River.
After an initial discovery by Inco Ltd., in 1997, drilling by Pure Nickel Inc. and ITOCHU Corporation, between 2008 and 2013, resulted in the discovery of a >15km mineralized corridor (Eureka Zone) of disseminated Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization associated with serpentinized mafic and ultramafic rocks. Other exploration targets include massive sulfide Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization associated with mafic dikes cross-cutting the ultramafic sequence and remobilized high-grade Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization associated with Cretaceous intrusions. Additionally, Cu-Pb-Zn-Au-Ag mineralization has been discovered in volcaniclastic rocks that may be associated with volcanic massive sulfide mineralization.
Alaska Energy Metals has identified a zone of mineralization (1700m x 600m x 300m) at the Eureka Zone that contains potentially economic concentrations of nickel, copper, cobalt, platinum, palladium, and gold. Additionally, Alaska Energy Metals postulates that higher-grade mineralization may occur in embayment features at the base of the Eureka Zone, where heavy metals may accumulate during fractionation and crystallization of the ultramafic intrusion. Further drilling is warranted to confirm this hypothesis, along with in-fill drilling on the identified zone of mineralization with the goal of defining a NI 43-101/JORC compliant resource.
A complete data review of the Canwell claims is underway. Based on the results of this review, targets will be ranked based on current data. Additional geochemical and geophysical techniques may be conducted to prioritize drilling targets.
