Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corp. (CSE: API) (OTCQX: APAAF) (FSE: A0I0) (MUN: A0I0) (BER: A0I0) (the "Company" or "Appia") announced today that an independent technical report prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") has been filed for the PCH ionic adsorption clay (IAC) project (the "PCH Project") located in the State of Goiás, Brazil. The report entitled 'Technical Report on the Maiden Mineral Resource Estimate for The PCH Project, State of Goiás, Brazil' dated April 15th, 2024 with an effective date of February 1, 2024 (the "PCH MRE Report"). The PCH MRE Report was co-authored by Yann Camus, P.Eng., Marc-Antoine Laporte, P.Geo., M.Sc., and Sarah Dean, P.Geo., of SGS Canada Inc. ("SGS"), all of whom are independent qualified persons under NI 43-101. The PCH MRE Report is available for review on SEDARplus (www.sedarplus.com) and the Company's website www.appiareu.com.

There are no material differences in the PCH MRE Report from those results disclosed in the Company's press release issued March 1, 2024. (Click Here).

Stephen Burega, President, commented, "The PCH MRE Report has outlined both exceptional grade and volume across both Target IV and Buriti zones which cover a total area of approximately 480 hectares. Within Target IV Appia has identified a high-grade zone with an inferred resource totalling 13.5 Mt at an average grade of 7307 parts per million (PPM) TREO."

He continued, "The data generated from the first 300 drill holes at PCH has provided our team with a strong geological signature to track and confirm additional high-grade mineralization at newly identified ionic adsorption clay targets across the remaining tenements which encompass a very large area of over +40,000 hectares. The phase II auger drilling program is currently well underway, and we look forward to reporting on results as data becomes available."

The Mineral Resource Statement prepared by SGS for the PCH Project is detail below.

  1. The MRE has an effective date of the 1st of February 2024.
  2. The Qualified Person for the MRE is Mr. Yann Camus, P.Eng., an employee of SGS.
  3. The MRE provided in this table were estimated using current Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum ("CIM") Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves, Definitions and Guidelines.
  4. Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves have not demonstrated economic viability. Additional drilling will be required to convert Inferred and Indicated Mineral Resources to Measured Mineral Resources. There is no certainty that any part of a Mineral Resource will ever be converted into Reserves.
  5. All analyses used for the MRE were performed by SGS GEOSOL by ICM40B: Multi Acid Digestion / ICP OES - ICP MS and by IMS95R: Lithium Metaborate Fusion / ICP-MS.
  6. MRE are stated at a cut-off total NSR value of 10 US$/t. The full price list and recovery used to estimate the NSR is in Table 2. The estimated basket price of TREO is US$26.98.
  7. GEOVIA's WhittleTM software was used to provide an optimized pit envelope to demonstrate reasonable prospection for economic extraction. Preliminary pit optimization parameters included overall pit slope of 30 degrees, in-pit mining costs of $2.10, processing and G/A costs of $9/t, and overall mining loss and dilution of 5%. Full details of the preliminary pit-optimization parameters can be found in Table 2. The basket price and oxides price list in Table 2 are based on forward-looking pricing. These future prices are predicted based on market trends, economic forecasts, and other relevant factors. The actual prices may vary depending on changes in these factors.
  8. Figures are rounded to reflect the relative accuracy of the estimate and numbers may not add due to rounding.
  9. Resources are presented undiluted and in situ, constrained within a 3D model, and are considered to have reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction.
  10. Bulk density values were determined based on physical test work and assumed porosities for each type of material.
  11. Total Rare Earth Oxides: TREO = Y2O3 + Eu2O3 + Gd2O3 + Tb2O3 + Dy2O3 + Ho2O3 + Er2O3 + Tm2O3 + Yb2O3 + Lu2O3 + La2O3 + Ce2O3 + Pr2O3 + Nd2O3 + Sm2O3.
  12. Magnetic Rare Earth Oxides: MREO = Sm2O3 + Tb4O7 + Dy2O3 + Pr6O11 + Nd2O3.
  13. Heavy Rare Earth Oxides: HREO = Sm2O3 + Eu2O3 + Gd2O3 + Tb4O7 + Dy2O3 + Ho2O3 + Er2O3 + Tm2O3 + Yb2O3 + Lu2O3.
  14. The MRE may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, socio-political, marketing, or other relevant issues.

Phase II Auger Drilling Across the PCH Project

The Company also wishes to announce the expansion of its auger drilling exploration program aimed at the identification of new Ionic Adsorption Clay (IAC) targets on the remaining claims to the east and north of Target IV and Buriti Zones, on its 40,963.18 ha. PCH project within the Goiás State of Brazil. The geological environment of the remaining tenements is equivalent to the one characterized on Target IV, and it will be tested during the Phase II auger drilling program.

The selection of the new target zones to be tested was based on three primary factors including:

  1. A similar geological formation which the Company has identified as the Iporá Granite;
  2. Similar weathering profile development with well-developed transition zone between Pedolith and Saprolites where the Ionic Adsorption Clays occur; and
  3. Positive showing of the related gammaspectometric geophysical response.

Uranium Sector Expected to See a Run as Positive Momentum and Demand Builds

Uranium Sector Expected to See a Run as Positive Momentum and Demand Builds

FN Media Group News Commentary - An article from REUTERS on the Uranium markets earlier this year painted a prosperous picture for the global Uranium. The report said: "Investment banks Goldman Sachs and Macquarie as well as some hedge funds are positioning themselves to reap the benefits of a newly buoyant uranium sector as prices of the nuclear fuel ingredient spike. While many other investment banks are still avoiding uranium, Goldman and Macquarie are boosting trading in physical uranium and in Goldman's case trading its options as well, five industry and hedge fund sources with knowledge of the deals said. The heightened activity comes as utilities seek new supplies amid shortfalls that have lifted prices to 16-year highs ."   It continued: "A few hedge funds are also stepping up involvement in both equities and physical uranium, a sign that the metal is starting to broaden its appeal to financial institutions after a decade in the doldrums following the Fukushima nuclear disaster.   With the headlines and positive momentum in nuclear more generally, hedge funds and other commodity investors are back in the (uranium) sector. A lot of it is done via physical funds, the easiest way to get exposure to uranium prices," said Bram Vanderelst at trading firm Curzon Uranium.   The metal has captured investors' attention after prices doubled over the past year to $102 a pound as top producers Kazatomprom and Cameco cut production guidance because reopened mines that had been mothballed struggled to ramp up production to meet renewed demand."   Active mining companies in the markets this week include Stallion Uranium Corp. (OTCQB: STLNF) (TSX-V: STUD) (, enCore Energy Corp. (NASDAQ: EU), Forum Energy Metals Corp. (OTCQB: FDCFF) (TSX-V: FMC), Energy Fuels Inc. (NYSE American: UUUU) (TSX: EFR), Ur-Energy Inc.

About Aclara

Aclara Resources Inc. (TSX: ARA) is a development-stage company that is focused on heavy rare earth mineral resources hosted in Ion-Adsorption Clay deposits. The Company's rare earth mineral resource development projects include the Penco Module in the Bio-Bio Region of Chile and the Carina Module in the State of Goiás, Brazil .

Aclara's rare earth extraction process offers several environmentally attractive features. Circular mineral harvesting does not involve blasting, crushing, or milling, and therefore does not generate tailings and eliminates the need for a tailing's storage facility. The extraction process developed by Aclara minimizes water consumption through high levels of water recirculation made possible by the inclusion of a water treatment facility within its patented process design. The ionic clay feedstock is amenable to leaching with a common fertilizer main reagent, ammonium sulfate. Further, harmful levels of radionuclides, typical of hard rock rare earth deposits, are not concentrated within the Aclara's processing flowsheet. In addition to the development of the Penco Module and the Carina Module, the Company will continue to identify and evaluate opportunities to increase future production of heavy rare earths through greenfield exploration programs and the development of additional projects within the Company's concessions in Brazil , Chile , and Peru .
