Phenom Resources Corp. (TSXV: PHNM) (OTCQX: PHNMF) (FSE: 1PY0) ("Phenom" or the "Company") (formerly First Vanadium Corp) is pleased to announce that it has engaged Cassidy & Associates, Inc. (Cassidy) based in Washington, DC to help identify and determine U.S. federal funding opportunities to foster additional support and resources for the Company's vanadium project.
"The Biden Administration has made clear its strong commitment to securing domestic critical mineral supply chains by invoking the Defense Production Act for battery materials and making historic investments in the billions for battery materials processing through the recently passed Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, among other laws." said Paul Cowley, Company President & CEO, "Through this partnership with Cassidy, we hope to identify pathways to garner federal support and funding resources for our project, which would diversify Nevada's critical minerals portfolio and deliver high grade U.S. vanadium to help meet increased infrastructure and clean energy demands, as well as improve national security."
Over the past year, the U.S. has demonstrated its commitment to securing a robust domestic critical minerals supply chain to support needed infrastructure improvements, a growing clean energy economy, and enhanced national security. Phenom stands to benefit from this renewed focus as the company with North America's largest highest-grade primary vanadium deposit.
Vanadium, deemed a critical mineral in the U.S., has a vital role to play in strengthening the steel used in infrastructure projects and providing a superior alternative to the lithium battery used in energy storage. Additionally, boosting domestic production of the metal will reduce reliance on resources from China and Russia, which currently produce approximately 75% of the world's vanadium.
In working with Cassidy, the Company will identify and evaluate a range of opportunities to engage with key federal decision makers on issues related to domestic critical minerals supply chains.
