Basin Uranium Engages Terralogic for 2022 Exploration Program
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 18, 2022) - BASIN URANIUM CORP. (CSE: NCLR) (OTC Pink: BURCF) (FSE: 6NP0) ("Basin Uranium" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the Company has engaged TerraLogic Exploration Inc. to facilitate the proposed exploration and development work program on the Company's Mann Lake uranium project in Saskatchewan's prolific Athabasca Basin. The Mann Lake project is located 25km southwest of the McArthur River Mine, the largest high-grade uranium deposit in the world, and 15 km to the northeast along strike of Cameco's Millennium uranium deposit. The work program is fully funded with cash on hand from the capital raises completed in 2021.
"We are excited to partner with TerraLogic for our upcoming 2022 work program, which is to include a significant diamond drill program. TerraLogic has extensive experience in the Athabasca Basin, having fully-managed numerous exploration programs throughout the area," commented Mike Blady, CEO of Basin Uranium. "We are currently working through the permitting process, consulting with stakeholders including the Ya' thi Néné and the local First Nations groups, in addition to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment, Fish, Wildlife and Lands. We are also finalizing agreements with the various surveying and drilling crews to be able to mobilize once the permitting process is completed."
In December 2021, the Company submitted its permitting package to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment, Fish, Wildlife and Lands and began the consultation process with local stakeholders. The Company has engaged the Ya' thi Néné, a non-profit organization owned by the seven Athabasca Basin First Nations communities, in addition to other local stakeholders to ensure the highest level of engagement with all groups.
The proposed 2022 work program will include geophysical surveying and geochemical sampling, in addition to an extensive diamond drill program. Past exploration, which totalled over $3 million by previous operators, has identified a number of basement conductors and structural corridors which is the prospective horizon for uranium mineralization. Preparations are underway for the rapid mobilization upon receipt of all necessary permits and approvals, in addition to completing stakeholder consultation, with the work program anticipated to commence later this quarter.
