Appia to Conduct a Diamond Drilling Program at Its Uranium-Bearing Loranger Property, Wollaston Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada

Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corp. (CSE: API) (OTCQX: APAAF) (FSE: A0I0) (MUN: A0I0) (BER: A0I0) (the "Company" or "Appia") is pleased to announce the details regarding their upcoming diamond drilling program at their Loranger property, SK. Located within the eastern Wollaston Domain, Loranger is situated adjacent to the renowned, uranium-rich Athabasca Basin and holds strong potential for hosting valuable uranium deposits. The focus of this program is to strategically target highlighted NE-SW electromagnetic conductors at depth (Figure 1) using results from the VTEM Plus geophysical survey conducted in 2021 by Geotech Airborne Geophysical Surveys Ltd.

Stephen Burega, President, stated: "We are looking forward to getting our diamond drilling program at Loranger underway. The project is adjacent to the east side of the uranium-rich Athabasca Basin, and this program targets NE-SW electromagnetic conductors identified by the 2021 Resistivity Depth Imaging survey, aiming to uncover significant uranium deposits."

Starting mid-June, 2024, Appia aims to drill 1,000 total meters across 3 to 4 drill holes, targeting depths of 200 to 300 meters. The operation will be supported by Mustang Helicopters Inc., utilizing one Hydracore Diamond Drill supplied and operated by Apex Diamond Drilling Ltd. In a collaborative effort with YNLR and the local Hatchet Lake First Nations Band, the Loranger project will be proudly supported by local community employees, infrastructure, materials, and resources.

The Loranger drilling program will mark a significant advancement in the exploration and development of this Saskatchewan property, underscoring the Company's commitment to engaging and supporting local communities while pursuing its strategic objectives.

Appia Begins Drilling at the Uranium-Bearing Loranger Property, Wollaston Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada

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."

Aclara Announces Strategic Alliance with VAC to Develop Permanent Magnet Supply Chain

Aclara Announces Strategic Alliance with VAC to Develop Permanent Magnet Supply Chain

Aclara Resources Inc. ("Aclara" or "Company") (TSX:ARA) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with VACUUMSCHMELZE GmbH & Co. KG ("VAC"), which establishes a non-binding, non-exclusive, preliminary agreement, to jointly approach potential clients as a "mine-to-magnets" solution for ESG compliant permanent magnets (the "Preliminary Agreement

Aclara and VAC believe that there is a significant market opportunity driven by the rising demand for electric vehicles ("EVs"), wind turbines, and other clean technologies that require rare earth permanent magnets produced pursuant to ever-increasing ESG standards. Such permanent magnets require significant quantities of both light and heavy rare earth minerals. Currently, obtaining these rare earth mineral materials whilst also having the capacity to process them, combined with the industrial technology needed to fabricate permanent magnets, is very limited and concentrated among a few Asia-based suppliers. This supply/demand dynamics results in a promising background to develop a new, resilient, ESG-focused supply for permanent magnets.

About Energy FuelsEnergy Fuels is a leading U.S.-based uranium and critical minerals company. The Company, as a leading producer of uranium in the United States , mines uranium and produces natural uranium concentrates that are sold to major nuclear utilities for the production of carbon-free nuclear energy. Energy Fuels recently began production of advanced rare earth element (" REE ") materials, including mixed REE carbonate in 2021, and commenced production of commercial quantities of separated REEs in 2024. Energy Fuels also produces vanadium from certain of its projects, as market conditions warrant, and is evaluating the recovery of radionuclides needed for emerging cancer treatments. Its corporate offices are in Lakewood, Colorado , near Denver , and substantially all its assets and employees are in the United States . Energy Fuels holds two of America's key uranium production centers: the White Mesa Mill in Utah and the Nichols Ranch in-situ recovery (" ISR ") Project in Wyoming . The White Mesa Mill is the only conventional uranium mill operating in the U.S. today, has a licensed capacity of over 8 million pounds of U 3 O 8 per year and has the ability to produce vanadium when market conditions warrant, as well as REE products, from various uranium-bearing ores. The Nichols Ranch ISR Project is on standby and has a licensed capacity of 2 million pounds of U 3 O 8 per year. The Company recently acquired the Bahia Project in Brazil and entered into a joint venture agreement to develop the Donald Project in Australia , each of which is believed to have significant quantities of titanium (ilmenite and rutile), zirconium (zircon) and REE (monazite) minerals. In addition to the above production facilities, Energy Fuels also has one of the largest NI 43-101 compliant uranium resource portfolios in the U.S. and several uranium and uranium/vanadium mining projects in production, on standby and in various stages of permitting and development.
