Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 31, 2024) - Cosa Resources Corp. (TSXV: COSA) (OTCQB: COSAF) (FSE: SSKU) ("Cosa" or the "Company") is pleased to announce completion of the previously announced acquisition (the "Acquisition") of the Titan uranium Property in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan ("Titan" or the "Property") from CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (the "Vendor") pursuant to a property acquisition agreement dated January 12, 2024 (the "Purchase Agreement"). Additionally, the Company has entered into a service agreement (the "Service Agreement") with Swiss Resource Capital AG ("SRC").


  • Eight mineral dispositions totalling 9,333 hectares have been acquired, doubling the size of Cosa's Orion Project to 18,332 hectares

  • The expanded Orion Project captures over 22 kilometres of the fertile Larocque Lake trend, which hosts the Hurricane Deposit and several other significant uranium showings

  • Orion now captures nearly 12 kilometres of the Cigar Lake trend where it intersects the Larocque Lake trend, both of which host several mineralized intercepts and uranium deposits

Keith Bodnarchuk, President and CEO of Cosa, commented: "The acquisition of Titan, which is contiguous with Cosa's Orion Project (Figure 1), doubles Orion's footprint, strengthening Cosa's portfolio of underexplored projects covering prospective uranium structural corridors. The consolidated Orion project now covers 22 kilometres of the Larocque Lake trend midway between two uranium occurrences on the Cigar Lake trend. The target areas in this newly acquired ground augment the high-priority target developed by our work in 2023, which identified a kilometre-scale zone of anomalous sandstone conductivity overlying conductive and structurally complex basement rocks. We are planning work to advance Orion to drill readiness in 2024 while continuing to advance and expand our portfolio through cost-effective acquisitions of new projects. We'd like to again thank the CanAlaska team for an agreeable and expedient closing process."

The Expanded Orion Project

The expanded Orion Project (the "Project") comprises 11 claims totaling 18,332 hectares and lies within 31 kilometres of the Cigar Lake Uranium Mine. The Project covers 22 kilometres of the Larocque Lake trend which hosts the Hurricane uranium deposit, the Larocque Lake uranium zone, and the Alligator Lake uranium zone (Figure 2). Cosa interprets that within Orion the Larocque Lake trend is intersected by the Cigar Lake trend which hosts the Cigar Lake Mine and the Tucker Lake uranium zone to the east of the Project. Results at Tucker Lake include 5.7% U3O8 over 4.5 metres in drill hole CLC5-11 (639.0 - 643.5 metres). West of Orion, the interpreted extension of the Cigar Lake trend hosts drill hole PAR-03 which intersected 0.05% U3O8 over 1.0 metres (932.4 - 933.4 metres). Historical geophysical surveying over the expanded portion of Orion includes ZTEM, a modern airborne survey system capable of mapping electromagnetic (EM) conductors at depth within the basement. Initial steps for the newly acquired ground are expected to include interpretation and three-dimensional (3-D) inversion of this historical dataset to guide ground-based follow up.

In western Orion, 3-D inversion results from Cosa's 2023 MobileMT™ survey indicate a prominent, kilometre-scale zone of conductivity in the sandstone above basement-hosted electromagnetic conductors, a geophysical signature consistent with the unconformity-related uranium deposits in the Athabasca Basin. This target area remains a high priority for follow-up in 2024.

Only two drill holes are known to have been completed within the expanded Project. The depth to the unconformity is estimated to be between 700 and 900 metres.

Acquisition Details

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, Cosa acquired a 100% unencumbered ownership of all eight mineral claims comprising Titan from the Vendor in exchange for C$10,000 in cash and the issuance of 300,000 common shares of the Company (the "Consideration Shares"). The Consideration Shares are subject to a four-month hold period pursuant to applicable Canadian securities laws, after which 25% of the Consideration Shares will become free trading. In addition, the Vendor has agreed to voluntary resale restrictions whereby an additional 25% of the Consideration Shares will become free trading every three months thereafter.

Marketing Campaign Service Agreement

The Company has entered into a Service Agreement with Zurich based Swiss Resource Capital AG (SRC), an independent arm's-length entity, dated January 30, 2024, pursuant to which SRC will provide digital marketing, news release translation and dissemination, television communication services, and investor relations services for the Company in Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, and other European countries (the "Services") commencing on March 1, 2024. In exchange for Services, Cosa has agreed to pay 4500 CHF per month for a twelve-month period. Additional investor relations services, such as European road show tours and conference representation, can be added separately on a case-by-case basis. Following completion of the initial twelve-month period, the Service Agreement will be automatically renewed on a quarterly basis and can be terminated by either party by providing written notice at least seven days prior to renewal. Neither SRC nor any of the directors or officers of SRC have any interest, directly or indirectly, in the securities of Cosa or any right to acquire such an interest. The Company is not issuing any common shares, stock options, warrants, or other equity as part of compensation. The engagement of SRC is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

About Cosa Resources Corp.

Cosa Resources is a Canadian uranium exploration company operating in northern Saskatchewan. The portfolio comprises roughly 200,000 ha across multiple projects in the Athabasca Basin region, all of which are underexplored, and the majority reside within or adjacent to established uranium corridors.

Cosa's award-winning management team has a long track record of success in Saskatchewan. In 2022, members of the Cosa team were awarded the AME Colin Spence Award for their previous involvement in discovering IsoEnergy's Hurricane deposit. Prior to Hurricane, Cosa personnel led teams or had integral roles in the discovery of Denison Mines' Gryphon deposit and 92 Energy's Gemini Zone and held key roles in the founding of both NexGen and IsoEnergy.

Cosa's primary focus through 2024 is initial drilling at their Ursa Project, which captures over 60-kilometres of strike length of the Cable Bay Shear Zone, a regional structural corridor with known mineralization and limited historical drilling. It potentially represents the last remaining eastern Athabasca corridor to not yet yield a major discovery. Modern geophysics completed by Cosa in 2023 identified multiple high-priority target areas characterized by conductive basement stratigraphy beneath or adjacent to broad zones of inferred sandstone alteration - a setting that is typical of most eastern Athabasca uranium deposits.
