About Capacitor Metals Corp.

Capacitor Metals Corp. is a British Columbia Incorporated Company focused on the development of the Blue River Tantalum-Niobium Property located in British Columbia, Canada. The Company is positioning to be one of the lowest cost tantalum-niobium producers globally, with a specific focus on being a long-term supplier of tantalum and niobium to the global market.

The Blue River Property is a fully serviced site in mining-friendly British Columbia, Canada with excellent infrastructure close at hand, including rail, paved road, water, and power adjacent to project site.

The Property contains three known deposits of tantalum and niobium and an additional 20+ known exploration targets.

The Project is advanced with significant work already completed. CAD$34M+ has been spent to date, including 271 drill holes, an historical Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA"), community consul-tations, and preliminary metallurgical and environmental work.

Within the Blue River Property, the Upper Fir deposit has a significant historical indicated resource of 9.6M kg contained tantalum and 77.8M kg contained niobium plus an historical inferred resource of 1.0M kg contained tantalum and 9.6M kg contained niobium.

Historically (2013) the Project was considered one of the world's largest and low-cost potential near-term supplier of conflict-free tantalum. The PEA completed on the Upper Fir deposit, defining a low capital expenditure project that could produce 700,000 lbs. Ta2O5 annually, outlining its potential to be the world's largest tantalum producer.

Expansion potential to Upper Fir, Fir and additional deposits provides further production upside.

The Company intends to finance the ongoing exploration and marketing of the Blue River deposit with a five-cent private placement unit for up to $2,000,000. The financing will facilitate an updated 43-101 technical report and a new strategic plan to move the company forward. The financing will rely on exciting exceptions and preference will be given to Commerce and Zimtu shareholders.

The Capacitor team will be led by Dave Hodge and will include:
