Discussion board has submitted a allow software for a 3,500 metre drill program in Q1/2022 and would be the Operator and sole funder of this system. With the $1.3 million proposed price range, Discussion board expects to extend its curiosity to 47% within the mission with the dilution of the companions’ pursuits. The historic 1.5 million pound Maurice Bay uranium deposit* is a perched deposit within the sandstone primarily based on 600,000 tonnes grading 0.6% U3O8 to a depth of fifty metres within the Western Athabasca Basin (Supply: Saskatchewan Trade and Sources, Miscellaneous Report 2003-7).
Discussion board is targeted on the invention of a bigger uranium deposit hosted on the unconformity between the sandstone and basement rocks and/or throughout the basement rocks. Drilling in 2012, 2013 and 2014 by Discussion board recognized a lot of shallow zones of uranium mineralization grading as much as 5.7% uranium over 8.5 metres. With over twenty drill targets recognized, it’s Discussion board’s view that there’s a uranium deposit on the property but to be found.
Fir Island (Orano Canada Choice to Earn 70%)
Discussion board has really helpful to Orano a resistivity survey to be performed in December, 2021 to the north of drilling accomplished this previous winter on Fir Island, adopted by drilling of any anomalies detected from the survey. Timing of this program depends on Orano’s price range and allowing.
Different Uranium Initiatives
The gravity survey introduced April 7, 2021 on the Wollaston mission positioned 10km south of Cameco’s Rabbit Lake uranium mill and instantly east of the all-weather highway to Orano’s McClean Lake uranium processing plant shall be accomplished in This autumn/2021. Discussion board has recognized a lot of drill targets from previous drilling by Discussion board on the 100% owned Highrock and the 65% owned Costigan tasks positioned 5 km south of Cameco’s Key Lake uranium mill. Within the Western Athabasca Basin, Discussion board’s 75% owned Clearwater mission, on pattern from Fission’s Triple R and NexGen’s Arrow improvement tasks has drill targets recognized by earlier Discussion board drilling. Rio Tinto Exploration Canada (“Rio Tinto”), 60% proprietor and operator of the Henday mission (40% Discussion board) within the Jap Athabasca Basin, doesn’t plan any packages for 2022.
ENERGY METAL PROJECTS
Janice Lake Copper/Silver (Rio Tinto Choice to Earn 80%)

Rio Tinto expects outcomes to be accessible by mid-October. A significant focus of Rio Tinto’s summer season exploration program was regional mapping, sampling and prospecting of the complete extent of the 52 kilometre lengthy sedimentary basin internet hosting these copper deposits. Prospecting in 2020 found a 3.8% copper boulder eighteen kilometres to the south of the present drill space.
Love Lake Nickel/Copper/Palladium (100% Discussion board)
Discussion board is presently on its seventh drillhole of its 3,000 metre drill program on three targets recognized over the Love Lake mafic/ultramafic complicated. Samples from the primary three holes have been delivered to the Saskatchewan Analysis Council for evaluation. A minimal of three additional holes are deliberate on the property.
Quartz Gulch Cobalt/Copper (100% Discussion board)
A prospecting, mapping and sampling program has been delayed by forest fires in Idaho and is predicted to begin in late September/early October. This would be the first program performed on the property since Noranda, earlier operator of the close by Blackbird cobalt mine, accomplished an exploration program that recognized anomalous cobalt in stream sediment samples on the property in 1982.
