As of today, Fireweed’s common shares are actively trading on OTCQX under the trading symbol ‘FWEDF.’ This significant step underscores the Company’s commitment to accessibility for U.S. investors, aligning with the high standards set by OTCQX.

CEO Statement

Brandon Macdonald, CEO, stated ‘Fireweed’s transition from OTCQB to OTCQX affirms the quality of our Company and projects. By being on the OTCQX platform, we’ve broadened accessibility to Fireweed shares, catering to a wider spectrum of investors. This is poised to enhance our shareholder base both in the U.S. and globally, amplifying our overall liquidity.’

About Fireweed Metals Corp. (TSXV: FWZ; OTCQX: FWEDF; FSE: M0G): Fireweed is a public mineral exploration company on the leading edge of Critical Minerals project development. Fireweed is well-funded, with a healthy balance sheet, and has three projects located in Canada:

Mactung Project (Tungsten): Fireweed owns 100% interest in the 38 km 2 Mactung Project located adjacent to the Macpass Project. Recently announced Mineral Resources for Mactung (41.5 Mt Indicated Resource at 0.73% WO 3 and 12.2 Mt Inferred Resource at 0.59% WO 3 ) 3 make it the world’s largest high-grade resource of the Critical Mineral tungsten**. Located in Canada, it is one of the rare large tungsten resources outside of China**. Gayna Project (Zinc-Lead-Silver-Gallium-Germanium): Fireweed owns 100% of the 129 km 2 Gayna Project located 180 km north of the Macpass Project. It is host to extensive mineralization including Critical Minerals zinc, gallium and germanium as well as lead and silver, outlined by 28,000 m of historical drilling. A re-evaluation of the geology supported by recent ground gravity geophysics results, soil surveys, and high-grade rock samples, indicate drill targets with potential for high-grade Kipushi-style massive sulphide mineralization.
