Azincourt Energy Corp. ("Azincourt" or the "Company") (TSX.V: AAZ, OTCQB: AZURF) is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced for the winter 2022 exploration program at the East Preston uranium project, located in the western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Full Force Drilling Ltd is providing two diamond drill rigs and conducting the drilling program, under the supervision of TerraLogic Exploration Inc. The first drill rig is operational, and the second rig should commence within days.

Winter 2022 Diamond Drilling Program

TerraLogic Exploration Inc. is executing the winter 2022 diamond drilling program under the guidance and supervision of Azincourt's Vice President, Exploration, Trevor Perkins, P.Geo, and Jarrod Brown, M.Sc., P.Geo, Chief Geologist and Project Manager with TerraLogic Exploration. The program will consist of a minimum of 6,000m of drilling in 30-35 drill holes. Drilling will focus on the A-G and K-Q trends, commencing in the G Zone where in last season's abbreviated drill program, elevated uranium levels were obtained. This drill program will continue to evaluate the G zone to the south and assess the K-H-Q trend. The program may be modified, and drill holes adjusted at any time as results warrant.

The 73-km winter road to access the property and campsite is complete and camp construction is in the final stages. Accurate Industries will maintain the winter access road and facilitate transport of fuel and supplies to camp for the duration of the program. Discovery Mining Services will maintain, staff, and manage the exploration camp at Snoop Lake for the duration of the program. The program is expected to continue until mid to late March.

"The crew have done a tremendous job getting us to this point and ready to drill," said president and CEO, Alex Klenman. "Over 70 kilometers of road was built and upgraded, a 20-person camp was constructed, and all equipment was mobilized without issue. The next phase, drilling, is now underway. Needless to say, we're excited to begin what is the most comprehensive drill program ever at East Preston. We're focused on discovery, so the next couple of months will be a very busy time for us," continued Mr. Klenman.

"We are excited to finally have the drill rigs turning for this program. It will be exciting to see what we pull out of the ground," said VP, Exploration, Trevor Perkins. "We know we have a good structural corridor with graphitic lithologies present and alteration fluids in the system. Now we just need to pinpoint that location on the trend where it all comes together perfectly to give us a deposit," continued Mr. Perkins.

East Preston Targets

The primary target area for the 2022 program continues to be the conductive corridors from the A-Zone through to the G-Zone (A-G Trend) and the K-Zone through to the H and Q-Zones (K-H-Q Trend) (Figures 1 and 2). The selection of these trends is based on a compilation of results from the 2018 through 2020 ground-based EM and gravity surveys, property wide VTEM and magnetic surveys, and the 2019 through 2021 drill programs, the 2020 HLEM survey indicates multiple prospective conductors and structural complexity along these corridors.

The 2019-2021 drilling programs on the A-G Trend confirmed that geophysical conductors comprise structurally disrupted zones that are host to accumulations of graphite, sulphides, and carbonates. Anomalous radioactivity has been demonstrated to exist within these structurally disrupted conductor zones. The 2022 drilling program will target similar structurally disrupted zones prioritized on the presence and strength of corresponding electromagnetic, magnetic and gravity geophysical anomalies.

Permitting and Community Engagement

Permits are in place to complete all the planned work through the winter of 2022. Azincourt Energy continues to be engaged in regular meetings with the Clearwater River Dene Nation and other rights holders to ensure that concerns of the local communities are addressed. Azincourt looks forward to a continued close working relationship with CRDN and other rights holders to ensure that any potential impacts and concerns are addressed and that the communities can benefit from activities in the area through support of local business, employment opportunities, and sponsorship of select community programs and initiatives.

About East Preston

Azincourt controls a majority 70%+ interest in the 25,000+ hectare East Preston project as part of a joint venture agreement with Skyharbour Resources (TSX.V: SYH), and Dixie Gold. Three prospective conductive, low magnetic signature corridors have been discovered on the property. The three distinct corridors have a total strike length of over 25 km, each with multiple EM conductor trends identified. Ground prospecting and sampling work completed to date has identified outcrop, soil, biogeochemical and radon anomalies, which are key pathfinder elements for unconformity uranium deposit discovery.

The East Preston Project has multiple long linear conductors with flexural changes in orientation and offset breaks in the vicinity of interpreted fault lineaments – classic targets for basement-hosted unconformity uranium deposits. These are not just simple basement conductors; they are clearly upgraded/enhanced prospectivity targets because of the structural complexity.

The targets are basement-hosted unconformity related uranium deposits similar to NexGen's Arrow deposit and Cameco's Eagle Point mine. East Preston is near the southern edge of the western Athabasca Basin, where targets are in a near surface environment without Athabasca sandstone cover – therefore they are relatively shallow targets but can have great depth extent when discovered. The project ground is located along a parallel conductive trend between the PLS-Arrow trend and Cameco's Centennial deposit (Virgin River-Dufferin Lake trend).

Ellis Martin: Skyharbour Resources Ltd Secures Option to Acquire an Initial 51% and Up to 100% of the Russell Lake Uranium Project from Rio Tinto

Malibu, CA, United States (ABN Newswire) - Join Ellis Martin for a conversation with Jordan Trimble, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Skyharbour Resources (CVE:SYH)(OTCMKTS:SYHBF). SkyHarbour is a preeminent uranium and thorium exploration Company with projects located in the prolific Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan, Canada. The Company has just secured an Option to Acquire an Initial 51% and up to 100% of the Russell Lake Uranium Project from Rio Tinto in the Athabasca. This brings the total land package of Skyharbour Resources in the Athabasca Basin up to over 450,000 hectares or 4,500 sq km consisting of a total of 15 properties with some of the most high grade uranium targets in the world.

Skyharbour Resources Ltd announced that it has entered into an Option Agreement with Rio Tinto Exploration Canada Inc. ("RTEC"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Rio Tinto Limited ("Rio Tinto"), to acquire up to 100% of the Russell Lake Uranium Project (the "Property" or "Project"), which comprises 26 claims covering 73,294 hectares of prospective exploration ground strategically situated between the Company's Moore Uranium project (to the east) and Denison Mines' Wheeler River project (to the west) in the eastern portion of the Athabasca Basin.

The Project is a premier, advanced-stage exploration property given its large size, proximity to critical regional infrastructure, and the significant amount of historical exploration carried out on the property, which has identified numerous prospective target areas and several high-grade uranium showings as well as drill hole intercepts. The Property is centrally located between Cameco Corp.'s Key Lake mill to the south and McArthur River mine to the north. Access to the Property is via Highway 914, which services the McArthur River Mine and runs through the western extent of Property along with a high-voltage powerline that energizes the existing mining operations in the eastern portion of the Athabasca Basin.

Jordan Trimble, President and CEO of Skyharbour Resources, stated:

"We are very pleased to have reached an agreement with Rio Tinto to acquire up to a 100% interest in Russell Lake. This is a significant transaction for Skyharbour and involves the acquisition of a premier exploration property adjacent to our Moore project. Uranium properties with the pedigree and prospectivity of Russell Lake are few and far between given the very strategic location, notable historical exploration and findings, as well as the numerous property-wide targets with the potential to generate new discoveries."

"Additionally, we welcome Rio Tinto as a new strategic shareholder and project partner. We have a shared vision for the exploration of the various prospective target areas that remain to be fully tested on the Property using modern exploration methods and techniques. We look forward to working with Rio Tinto to generate a new meaningful discovery in the years to come."
