Radio Fuels Announces Spin-Out of Elliot Lake Assets and Strategic Reorganization as an Investment Issuer

April 30, 2024 – Toronto, Ontario – Radio Fuels Energy Corp. (the “Company” or “Radio Fuels”) (CSE: CAKE, OTCQB: CKEFF) is pleased to announce that the Company’s Board of Directors has unanimously approved plans for a strategic reorganization of its business pursuant to which the Company will become a resource focused investment issuer while the Company’s Elliot Lake assets and $1,500,000 in cash will be spun out to Radio Fuels’ shareholders (the “Spin-Out”) through a newly incorporated company (“SpinCo”).


  • The reorganization and Spin-Out will provide investors with an ownership stake in two separate specialized companies. One company will focus on the exploration and development of Radio Fuels’ Elliot Lake Uranium assets and the other, operating as an investment entity (“InvestCo”) will focus on investing in small and large cap mineral exploration and mining companies and will be left with approximately $20-million in cash and marketable securities.
  • Upon completion of the Spin-Out, SpinCo will hold the Company’s Elliot Lake assets and have working capital in excess of $1.5-million to provide the potential for advancement of the Elliot Lake property, in the District of Algoma, Ontario. 
  • It is proposed that common shares of SpinCo will be listed and distributed to shareholders of Radio Fuels in proportion to their shareholdings of Radio Fuels. Additional information around the timing of the proposed Spin-Out will be made in the coming weeks.

“We are pleased to announce these two exciting opportunities for the Company. Creating a standalone entity holding Radio Fuels’ Elliot Lake Uranium assets should give these properties the visibility and attention they deserve. With 39M Indicated and 67M Inferred uranium equivalent pounds in a Tier 1 jurisdiction and minimal holding costs, the Elliot Lake project provides a unique opportunity for investors seeking exposure to future uranium moves. SpinCo will continue its pounds-in-the-ground strategy and will seek ways to further enhance its strategic portfolio by exploring project advancement and other strategic alternatives including mergers, acquisitions and a stock exchange listing.

“At the same time, we will be able to leverage our significant balance sheet to finance and invest in a broad range of resource companies at a time when risk-capital is scarce and resource equity prices are depressed to provide shareholders with significant exposure to various commodities. With gold, copper, uranium, and a host of commodities breaking out, we feel this is an opportune time to deploy capital into the underfinanced and depressed resource equities,” Philip O’Neill, CEO & Director of Radio Fuels stated.


The Spin-Out will be completed as part of a strategic reorganization to unlock value in Radio Fuels’ Elliot Lake assets.  Radio Fuels will also contribute $1,500,000 in cash to SpinCo in order to finance its activities.

It is proposed that the Spin-Out will be carried out by way of statutory plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement”). Common shares of SpinCo (the “SpinCo Shares”) will be distributed to shareholders of Radio Fuels in proportion to their shareholdings of Radio Fuels. There will be no change in Radio Fuels shareholders’ holdings in the Company as a result of the Spin-Out.

If the Spin-Out is completed, shareholders will own shares in both companies; SpinCo, which will be focused on advancing the Elliot Lake assets, and InvestCo, which will be focused on financing and investing in small and large resource companies. In addition to advancing its exploration assets, SpinCo will evaluate all strategic opportunities available to the company to enhance value including mergers, acquisitions and a stock exchange listing.

The proposed Spin-Out will be subject to the terms of an arrangement agreement to be entered into between Radio Fuels and SpinCo, the approval of shareholders at a meeting of Radio Fuels shareholders, the approval of the British Columbia Supreme Court and the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”).

Further details of the Spin-Out will follow by additional press releases. Timing of the Spin-Out will be based on prevailing market conditions. The particulars of the Spin-Out are not yet final and shareholders are cautioned that there can be no assurance that the Spin-Out will be completed on the terms described herein or at all.

NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate – Elliot Lake Uranium
ClassificationTonnes (000 t)U3O8 (%)U3O8 (000 lbs)Total REO (ppm)Total REO (000 lbs)U3O8 Equivalent (%)U3O8 Equivalent (000 lbs)
Table 1. Mineral Resource estimate from NI 43.101 Technical Report published August 19, 2021. Notes: Mineral Resources were estimated within the Main Conglomerate Bed at a cut-off value of C$72/t. Values calculated in the technical report are based on prices and recoveries of uranium and rare earths, net of off-site rare earth separation costs. Mineral Resources were estimated using an average long-term uranium price of US$55/lb U3O8, a rare earth “basket price” of US$35/kg (net of separation charges), and a C$:US$ exchange rate of 1.25:1.00. 4. U3O8 Equivalents were calculated by converting rare earths values (net of prices, recoveries, and separation charges) to uranium values: (Ce*0.000001615) + (La*0.000001512) + (Nd*0.000083203) + (Pr*0.000086281) + (Sm*0.000001445) + (Eu*0.000026748) + (Gd*0.000034083) + (Sc*0.000873045) + (Y*0.00000438) + (Yb*0.000015265) + (Dy*0.000307606) + (Er*0.000025566) + (Ho*0) + (Lu*0) + (Tb*0.0009556) + (Tm*0) [units of ppm * Canadian dollar]. A minimum mining thickness of 1.8 m was used. TREO include light oxides La2O3, CeO2, Pr6O11, and Nd2O3, and heavy oxides Sm2O3, Eu2O3, Gd2O3, Tb4O7, Dy2O3, Ho2O3, Er2O3, Tm2O3, Yb2O3, Y2O3, and Lu2O3. Sc2O3 is also included, as it occurs in low concentrations and carries high unit values like a HREO. Since the previous NI 43-101 resource estimate, no additional drilling has been conducted at Eco Ridge and there have been no material changes to geological information which could influence the resource estimate.
