TORONTO, Oct. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Madison Metals Inc. (“Madison” or the “Company”) (CSE: GREN) (OTCQB: MMTLF) and Lux Partners Ltd. (“Lux”) are pleased to announce the first capital inflow from the initial first tranche mint launch of the Lux Uranium token, with proceeds totalling net to Madison USD $5.12 million.
The initial sales have exceeded all Lux projections as the non-fungible tokens (NFTs) continue to offer an exceptional value proposition, price discovery and transparency for exposure to uranium at a marginal discount to the current U3O8 spot price as quoted at USD$52.60 using October 24, 2022 prices published by UxC and TradeTech. Additional guidance will be provided over the next two weeks as follow-on sales orders, market listings and partnerships are made public.
The five-year exclusive supply agreement initially provides 7.65 million pounds of U3O8 that Madison has contributed to the Lux partnership from Madison’s uranium projects in Namibia to back the first-ever uranium-backed NFTs. Lux NFTs minted exclusively on their network bring liquidity and universal access to the uranium market and usher in a new era for both the tokenization of physical assets and distribution.
In connection with the forward sales agreement, Madison has issued three million common shares to an arms-length consultancy advisor that facilitated the transaction and the successful first transfer of capital to the Company.
