"Defense Metals Ltd.'s Wicheeda is well-positioned to take a leading role in the North American and global rare earth element supply chain. . .for all of the interest in rare earths, we are surprised that the company trades at its current valuation, especially when one considers the Wicheeda project's significant advantages, project improvements and derisking during the last several years."

"Defense Metals Corp.'s Wicheeda rare earth element project has several competitive advantages, including a mining friendly location, an existing mineral resource with significant expansion potential, an open pit project with favorable metallurgy and well-developed nearby infrastructure, and a strong technical team. We think the codesign agreement with the McLeod Lake Indian Band represents a significant step forward in advancing the Wicheeda project."

"Defense Metals Corp.'s Wicheeda rare earth element project has several competitive advantages, including a mining friendly location, an existing mineral resource with significant expansion potential, an open-pit project with favorable metallurgy and well-developed nearby infrastructure, and a strong technical team. With the phase three geotechnical program completed, the company is advancing toward what we think will be a compelling preliminary feasibility study (PFS) with work commencing on the PFS in Q2/24."

"Defense Metals Corp. completed its phase two, open-pit, diamond core and sonic infrastructure geotechnical drilling at Wicheeda. . .south and west pit wall drill holes WI23-81 and WI23-82 intersected significant widths of visible rare earth element-mineralized dolomite carbonatite."
