Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - June 25, 2024) - Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corp. (CSE: API) (OTCQX: APAAF) (FSE: A0I0) (MUN: A0I0) (BER: A0I0) (the "Company" or "Appia") is excited to announce the commencement of its diamond drilling program at the uranium-bearing Loranger property adjacent to the renowned Athabasca Basin. The goal of this program is to target favorable geophysical indicators intersecting the Tabbernor Fault system, with the primary objective of discovering conductors and alteration halos that may lead to uranium mineralization. The program will include up to 1,000 meters of drilling across 3 to 4 drill targets.

Stephen Burega, President of Appia, commented: "With the commencement of the Loranger drill program, Appia reconfirms its commitment to moving our uranium assets in Saskatchewan forward. Following the completion of a successful ground reconnaissance program on our Eastside property last month (see June 5th 2024 Press Release), we now have a drill testing a number of intriguing conductors at the Loranger property aimed at uncovering uranium mineralization and key geological indicators to further our understanding of the project's potential."

The crew will be based at Points North, Saskatchewan, and operations are efficiently staged 59 km south near the property to optimize ground and airborne helicopter transportation throughout the program. The program is expected to be completed within an 18-day timeline.

The Loranger drill program marks a significant step forward in Appia's exploration endeavors in northern Saskatchewan, enhancing the potential of the property amidst a favorable economic climate.
