Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - November 13, 2019) - CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (TSXV: CVV) (OTCQB: CVVUF) (FSE: DH7N) ("CanAlaska" or the "Company") is pleased to advise shareholders that management is highly encouraged with the Company's high-grade drill discoveries at the West McArthur Joint Venture uranium project and at our 100% owned Manibridge Nickel project. Latest West McArthur high-grade drill results include 6.8% U3O8 over 0.70 metres within a broad 650 metre by 400 metre geochemical halo - extending from bedrock to near-surface - provide strong support for continued drilling of the Grid 5 target zone in 2020.

At the Manibridge nickel project, drilling intersected high-grade mineralization - up to 12% Ni - at the north zone. Compilation of historical drill-hole data from the newly acquired Manibridge mine property has identified multiple new exploration targets. Follow-up drilling is warranted for discovery of high-grade sulphide nickel deposits.

The latest data from the West McArthur and Manibridge exploration discoveries is available on the Company's website: www.canalaska.com. These projects will be presented to investors and corporate groups at three upcoming resource investment conferences.

This month, CanAlaska will be presenting in London, United Kingdom at the 1-2-1 investment conference, as well as the Mines and Money conference. The 1-2-1 event matches projects to investment capital and is attended by mining and investment professionals with 2 days of meetings, market intelligence and investment ideas. The Mines and Money conference is Europe's largest mining investment event, attended by mining professionals, fund managers and investors. Both events will show-case the high-grade results received from the 2019 drill programs at West McArthur uranium JV and at the Company's 100% owned Manibridge nickel project.

In December, we are participating in the Saskatchewan Geological Survey Open House and, in January, management will be at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference.

CanAlaska President Peter Dasler comments, "In 2019 we were very successful with funding and carrying-out drill programs on two key projects. Our new team operated efficiently at both projects to enable us to preserve significant working capital for future exploration. We are looking forward to show-casing our successes and being able to continue significant exploration programs in 2020 to support our shareholders and their investments. I encourage shareholders to meet with us at the upcoming conferences or contact the Company for any further information that they may require."
