Nuclear Power is Seen as a Solution to Insufficiencies in Energy Infrastructures

NEW YORK, June 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The demand for cleaner energy sources is accelerating and developing markets, such as China and India, are in need of stronger energy infrastructure. Data provided by the World Nuclear Association, explains that Mainland China has 36 nuclear power reactors in operation, 21 under construction, and more starting construction. The increasing growth of nuclear power in China is mostly credited to air pollution from coal-fired plants. The new reactors, which are currently in construction and are expected to be the world's most innovative, are meant to double the nuclear capacity of about 58 GWe by 2020-21, then up to 150 GWe by 2030, and much more by 2050.

Recently, the U.S.A., Canada and Japan partnered to promote nuclear energy power. Director General of the World Nuclear Association, Agneta Rising, explained, according to Forbes that, "Countries will need to use nuclear energy alongside other forms of clean energy to deliver a sustainable energy mix that is affordable to all and that supports economic development."

Anfield Energy Inc. (OTCQB: ANLDF) is also listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the ticker (TSX-V: AEC). Earlier in May, the company announced that, "Stephen S. Lunsford has agreed to join the Company's Board of Directors. Mr. Lunsford has had an extensive career as a geologist in the uranium sector, spanning four decades, with his vast experience generated through his time working with entities such as Cameco Resources, Inc., American Nuclear Corp. and Power Resources, Inc. (PRI). In addition, Mr. Lunsford was involved in a feasibility study completed by PRI for Cotter with regard to Anfield's recently-acquired Charlie project in Wyoming. Overall, Mr. Lunsford's regional expertise and uranium asset knowledge will be a significant asset to Anfield.

'We are excited to have someone of Mr. Lunsford's calibre joining our board of directors,' commented Anfield's CEO, Corey Dias. 'His successful career spanning four decades in the uranium industry with well-known entities in the sector, such as Cameco and PRI, is impressive, and his extensive knowledge of Wyoming uranium will prove to be a great value to the Company as we move our projects forward. Moreover, his direct knowledge with regard to the Charlie project could allow Anfield to further streamline our path to production.'

Mr. Lunsford began his career with American Nuclear Corp. in 1972 where he began as a Field Geologist supervising field drilling programs for as many as seven drill rigs. He later became a Project Geologist where he organized and directed all aspects of exploration drilling programs.

During his time with Everest/PRI/Cameco, Mr. Lunsford planned and implemented delineation and exploration drilling programs and mapped subsurface roll fronts by means of drill hole geophysical logs. As Project Geologist, he generated uranium reserve/resource evaluations, created and maintained drill hole databases and planned and designed in-situ patterns. His responsibilities also included data collection and geology for generating mine permit applications.

From 2000 to 2002 Mr. Lunsford served as the Senior Project Geologist on PRI's Smith Ranch-Highland Mine where he evaluated the uranium reserve/resource estimation by geologic and geostatistical methods. He designed and evaluated uranium in-situ production patterns, performed prospect evaluations, and created and/or supervised maintenance of the geophysical drill hole database.

In 2002 he became Chief Geologist for the Smith Ranch-Highland Mine where he evaluated uranium prospects and supervised uranium IST mining efforts. As Chief Geologist he functioned as the Qualified Person (QP) for purposes of NI 43-101 reports.

From 2006 until his retirement in 2013, Mr. Lunsford served as Senior Evaluation Geologist for PRI/Cameco Resources. In this position, he generated uranium prospects internally and evaluated prospects submitted from outside sources. During this period, he continued to serve as the QP on NI 43-101 reports for PRI/Cameco.

From 2013 to 2014, Mr. Lunsford was a consulting geologist to Tetra Tech and Anatolia Energy on the Temrezil Uranium project in Turkey.
