First Tellurium Agrees to Acquire Additional 24% of PyroDelta Energy and New Thermoelectric Device

Upon completion of the agreement, First Tellurium will own 75% of PyroDelta.

Vancouver, BC, Canada, May 22, 2024 – First Tellurium Corp. (CSE: FTEL, OTC: FSTTF), reports that it has committed to acquire an additional 24% of PyroDelta Energy Corp. (“PyroDelta”), for US$705,000, from Michael Abdelmaseh, inventor and developer of the next-generation, tellurium-based thermoelectric device first announced October 19, 2023. With completion of the 24% acquisition, First Tellurium will own a total of 75% of PyroDelta. First Tellurium has advanced Mr. Abdelmaseh $300,000 to bring First Tellurium’s ownership to approximately 61%, with the remaining $405,000 to be advanced by March 21, 2025 to complete the 75% acquisition.

PyroDelta has completed the R&D phase of the device and is now exploring options for manufacturing. Patents have been applied for in both Canada and the United States.

“Since our first announcement about the device, there has been keen interest from other parties in the green energy sector,” said First Tellurium president and CEO Tyrone Docherty. “With a 75% ownership interest, we now have the flexibility to bring in other partners, should the opportunity arise, while still retaining majority ownership. Strategically, these parties could offer important advantages for everyone, both technically and financially, down the road. We look forward to taking the technology further.”

As reported March 13 and March 19, 2024, the new thermoelectric device offers significant advantages over current devices, including far higher tolerance to temperature extremes and lighter weight. These advantages have broad applications for electric and combustion engine vehicles, solar energy, greenhouses, long range drones and more.

Docherty added that First Tellurium’s recent presentation at the Energy Transition Metals Summit in Washington DC was well received by an audience that included key players in the critical metals sector. “We were the only tellurium-focused company at the conference, and we remain the only junior miner focused on tellurium exploration,” said Docherty. “After describing tellurium-related opportunities in solid state, next-generation lithium-tellurium batteries as well as the thermoelectric device, we had a number of interesting inquiries. The batteries offer important advantages in safety and energy efficiency, while the thermoelectric device could be a game-changer for both electric and combustion engine fuel consumption. In addition, the device has the potential to greatly improve the range of drones for both industry and defense.”
