Proposed Transaction Highlights (All figures in US dollars):

  • COAM can earn up to a 50% indirect interest in the Property by spending up to US$35M and advancing Ivana through to completion of a feasibility study, and to drill key exploration targets located in adjacent areas of the Property.
  • Following a positive feasibility study, COAM can earn an additional 1% upon its decision to fund the capital cost of the Project and further 29% interest by funding 100% of the estimated capital costs to achieve commercial production.

Nikolaos Cacos , Blue Sky President & CEO commented, "The recent PEA for our Amarillo Grande Project confirmed the Ivana deposit as a potential candidate for low-cost uranium production. The proposed transaction with COAM provides compelling benefits for Blue Sky and its shareholders by setting a clear path to bring Ivana to production in partnership with one of the most capable groups in Argentina.   Following an initial 50% interest for bringing Ivana to feasibility phase, Blue Sky will receive a free carry on the estimated capital costs in exchange for COAM earning an additional 30% interest in the Project. Furthermore, we are benefiting from substantial investment towards exploration at adjacent Properties, with the potential for new discoveries to be purchased by the JVCO in the future.  We look forward to completing the agreement and quickly moving Ivana forward through the next stages."
