Delrey Acquires Vanadium Assets

DELREY METALS CORP. (CSE:DLRY, FSE:1OZ) (“Delrey” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has entered into and closed a share purchase agreement dated December 12, 2018 (the “Share Purchase Agreement”) with WEM Western Energy Metals Ltd., a private arm’s length corporation (“WEM”), to acquire all the issued and outstanding share capital of WEM. Pursuant to the terms of the Share Purchase Agreement, the Company issued 4,250,000 common shares of the Company (each, a “Share”). All securities issued pursuant to the Share Purchase Agreement will be subject to a four month statutory hold period.

WEM owns a 100 percent undivided, unencumbered legal and beneficial interest in both the Peneece and the Blackie Vanadium properties (the “Properties”), located in British Columbia. The Properties cover a total area of 2,714 hectares and host vanadium mineralization within large bodies of titaniferous magnetite. Both properties are strategically located on tidewater, near to the small coastal cities of Port Hardy (Peneece – 68km) and Prince Rupert (Blackie – 96km).

About the Peneece and Blackie Vanadium Projects:

The Properties are comprised of large-scale ultramafic complexes which are intruded by gabbroic bodies hosting iron-titanium-vanadium (Fe-Ti-V) mineralization within massive titaniferous magnetite. Two of the gabbro bodies mapped on surface display lateral extents of 4.8km x 0.8km (Peneece) and 1.2km x 0.4km (Blackie).


  • Historic samples collected from the gabbro on the Blackie assay up to 2.14% V205.1
  • The Blackie property is located in a historic mining district. The adjacent past-producing Yellow Giant Mine, located less than 10km from the property and operated by Banks Island Gold as recently as 2015 initially boasted a 414% IRR, showing the economic potential that exists on Banks Island2.
  • McDougall (1984), commented that, “an unusually strong and extensive magnetic anomaly exists over the [Peneece Property]. It was, and still remains the largest flux gate magnetic anomaly noted by the writer during many years of work on the West Coast. The size and overall magnetic intensity of the anomaly were only exceeded at the multi-billion ton “Klukwan pyroxenite-amphibolite” deposit in S.E. Alaska.”
  • Magnetic concentrate from limited float samples collected distal to the magnetic anomaly on the Peneece Property assayed up to 0.59% V205.1
  • Both properties are easily accessible by boat or helicopter and workable year round. Historic barge-logging was completed within and near to the project areas, which has created a network of logging roads and allows for low cost exploration and development.

An initial work program including a high-resolution airborne magnetic survey is planned in the near term on both Properties.

Morgan Good, President and CEO of Delrey commented: “Delrey continues to rapidly grow its portfolio of quality projects prospective for metals relative to the energy metals sector. Our team has been evaluating properties, specifically vanadium rich properties, for quite some time now. While the notable increase in the price of vanadium is still specific to steel alloys, we’re anticipating the demand to continue growing and the prevalence of vanadium redox flow batteries is clearly on the rise. The world continues to move more and more toward renewable energy sources where the need for large capacity, inexpensive and long-lasting energy storage is an absolute necessity.”

About Vanadium

Vanadium is one of the largest percentage gainers among the battery metals group (Li, Co, Ni, Cu) since early 2017 climbing from under $5/lb to over $29/lb where it currently trades. This ductile, malleable and corrosion resistant transition metal has a wide range of use cases and can be found in automobiles, pipelines, jet engines, redox flow batteries and as an alloy in steel production, among others. Currently 90% of global vanadium production is used as an alloy in the manufacturing of steel, with the grade of the steel proportional to its vanadium content. New regulations recently emplaced by the Standardization Administration of China (SAC) have eliminated Grade 2 steel rebar production in China, replacing it with Grades 3, 4, and 5, which each consume progressively more vanadium. Global industrial growth and increased building standards in earthquake prone areas are forecasted to keep demand for vanadium strong.

The emerging market for Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries (“VRBs”) is showing tremendous potential. VRBs are non-flammable, reusable over semi-infinite cycles and are shown to not degrade for more than 20 years, which make them an efficient alternative to traditional lithium-ion batteries for grid power storage. The energy generated by renewable sources such as wind and solar is not constant over time and presents an excellent use case for VRBs to store excess power generated during peak production periods, which can be utilized during seasons with low wind or sun exposure. While the battery technology is in its early stages, the recent commissioning of the world’s largest ever battery, a 200MW/800MWh vanadium flow battery in Dalian, China, is proof that the fledgling technology is progressing at a fast rate. Currently VRBs account for only 2% of global vanadium demand, while many estimates are forecasting the market share for VRB’s to increase substantially as the emerging VRB space continues to grow.

Rheinmetall at MILIPOL – a strong partner of the security services

As a leading tech enterprise specializing in security and mobility, Rheinmetall feels a special obligation to make the best-possible equipment available to the people tasked with protecting us. This year, from 21 to 24 November, Rheinmetall will be presenting a selection of its extensive array of law enforcement and security products at the MILIPOL international security show in Paris.

The Survivor R protected special operations vehicle

The Survivor R epitomizes Rheinmetall’s commitment to the twin imperatives of security and mobility. Developed in cooperation with special vehicle maker Achleitner, it is extremely well suited for police special operations. In Germany, state-level police forces in Berlin and Saxony have already opted to equip their SWAT teams with the Survivor R.

Based on a high-performance 4×4 MAN truck chassis, the Survivor R is fitted with a steel armour cab. Capable of reaching speeds of over 100 km/h, the vehicle combines tried-and-tested automotive technology from major production runs with the latest force protection concepts from Rheinmetall.

An armoured monocoque cab with add-on protection elements can be individually and discreetly modified to meet evolving threat situations, while a ventilation system for filtering out nuclear, biological and chemical agents is standard equipment in every Survivor R vehicle. Although it is extremely well protected, the external appearance of the law enforcement version of the Survivor R is specifically designed to make a deescalating, non-military impression. Well lit and ergonomically designed, the interior is spacious enough to seat up to eleven personnel with their personal equipment as well as extensive C4I and communications equipment. This versatile vehicle can also be equipped with remotely operated weapon stations. For the first time ever, Rheinmetall is showcasing the Survivor R at MILIPOL 2017 with an integrated Qimek weapon station.

Systematic use of off-the-shelf civilian parts and serially produced military components make the vehicle an affordable option, while users can rely on Rheinmetall MAN’s global service network for maintenance and repairs. This makes the Survivor R a cost-effective, easy-to-maintain vehicle platform with low lifecycle costs and a high level of operational readiness.

Special effects technology

Rheinmetall offers a comprehensive array of pyrotechnic products. When it comes to SWAT team-type operations, the Group’s portfolio of multi-bang grenades and improved-performance flash-bang grenades with bottom-top venting (BTV) technology offers the perfect solution. They are extremely safe to handle, highly precise and very reliable.

Rheinmetall has developed a wide assortment of flares for signalling and for illuminating the area of operations at night. These include the handheld Mithras, with ranges of 300, 600 and 1,000 metres, with versions available for the visible and infrared sector.

40mm system family

As a leading maker of munitions, Rheinmetall’s extensive portfolio of 40mm x 46 products covers multiple operational scenarios. These range from distraction rounds and marking charges to non-lethal impulse ammunition and highly effective special solutions for methods of entry, or MOE.

Moreover, as a top maker of military systems and equipment, Rheinmetall offers a wide variety of relevant weapon concepts. These include the RS40 grenade launcher, whether as a build-on or standalone system, and the Magazine-Fed Grenade Launcher, or MFGL, which features integrated hydraulic shock absorption.

The Group’s fire control and aiming devices make Rheinmetall a one-stop shop for 40mm system technology.

Laser light modules

Rheinmetall has recently added two more modular components to its "VarioRay" family of laser light modules. The VarioRay LowProfile laser module and the separate "Lumenator" weapon lamp with 500-lumen illumination power provide the user with even greater tactical flexibility – despite their extremely small dimensions. The new products are key components for boosting the operational effectiveness of modern small arms. Moreover, visitors to the Rheinmetall stand at MILIPOL 2017 can learn about other members of the VarioRay family as well as the Group’s MultiRay MR 500 and MR 800 fire control aiming devices. Also on display is the TAC-Ray 1500 sniper build-on module with integrated ballistic computer.

Force protection

Rheinmetall’s line of VERHA (Versatile Rheinmetall Armour) products lends itself to multiple applications, including maritime, land and air platforms as well as protective vest components. During the course of several contracts, Rheinmetall has already supplied various types of protective systems to customers in the civil and military sectors as well as law enforcement. Examples here include the partial armouring of ships, carbon fibre protection components for luxury limousines, hard ballistic inserts for bullet-resistant vests, and quick-mounting add-on protective elements for armouring helicopter cockpits.

In addition, Rheinmetall’s innovative Sensing Armour technology offers a reliable means of servicing and inspecting hard ballistic protective vest inserts. The core feature of this technology is a sensor embedded in the inserts. This enables fast and easy detection of damage to inserts which otherwise appear to be intact – and without the need for expensive X-ray inspections.

Furthermore, at MILIPOL Rheinmetall is also showcasing its rapid smoke/obscurant system, ROSY, which provides reliable concealment in the event of an unexpected attack. Unlike conventional smoke/obscurant systems, it is not only capable of producing an instantaneous, extensive, multispectral interruption of the line of sight, but also generates a dynamic wall of smoke/obscurant, providing moving objects with long-lasting protection.

ROSY is available for various applications. The modular variant ROSY_Mod is suitable for small weapon stations and small vehicles, such as those used by special operators. ROSY_Mod can be directly – and invisibly – integrated into a vehicle with no need for a launcher.


In an era of digital vulnerability, the world needs innovative solutions, including ways of camouflaging potential targets for attack and for tricking attackers. Defending national cyberspace requires comprehensive knowledge of its structure, extent and most of all its vulnerability.

At MILIPOL, Rheinmetall is presenting several of its solutions in the realm of cyber security. These include -cyel equilibrium, which is based on the moving target approach, while the Group’s cyobs cyber radar measures, analyses and visualizes a country’s cyber vulnerability.
