Blue Sky Uranium Corp. (TSXV: BSK) (FSE: MAL2) (OTC: BKUCF) "Blue Sky" or the "Company") is pleased to announce assay results from the second tranche of results from the recently completed reverse circulation (" RC ") drilling program at the Ivana Deposit (as announced on March 23, 2022 ), within its wholly-owned Amarillo Grande Uranium-Vanadium Project (" AGP ") in Rio Negro Province Argentina . The assay results reported include 970 samples from 115 RC holes averaging 8.5m depth that tested areas of lower drill hole density at the margins of, and within, the western portion of the Ivana deposit; as well as testing the potential expansion of the deposit to the west (see Figure 1 and Table 1 *).

Highlights of the new RC drill results include*:

  • 5m averaging 1,566ppm U 3 O 8 and 243ppm V 2 O 5 in hole AGI-568, located more than 1.5kilometres from the southwest margin of the current mineral resource
    • including 7,027ppm U 3 O 8 and 236ppm V 2 O 5 over 1m
  • 3m averaging 702ppm U 3 O 8 and 1,119 ppm V 2 O 5
    • including 1,774ppm U 3 O 8 and 1,981ppm V 2 O 5 over 1 m in AGI-601
  • 6m averaging 344ppm U 3 O 8 and 242ppm V 2 O 5
    • including 933ppm U 3 O 8 and 109ppm V 2 O 5 over 1m in AGI-616
  • 8m averaging 128ppm U 3 O 8 and 141ppm V 2 O 5
    • including 562ppm U 3 O 8 and 30ppm V 2 O 5 over 1m in AGI-617
  • 6m averaging 232ppm U 3 O 8 and 43ppm V 2 O 5
    • including 448ppm U 3 O 8 and 16ppm V 2 O 5 over 1m in AGI-629

*All holes were vertical, and the reported intervals are believed to represent true thickness.

Nikolaos Cacos , Blue Sky President & CEO commented, "We are very pleased with these recent results, that indicate great success in all aspects of the program.  New strong uranium and vanadium mineralization both within the deposit margins and in a large step-out hole confirm the potential to both expand and upgrade the Ivana deposit.  We look forward to the final results of the program that will help us plan the next steps in the process for this remarkable deposit and project."

This second group of assay results from the current program includes holes from step-out drilling targeting the uranium and vanadium mineralized zone to the west of the current Ivana mineral resource, initially discovered during the 2018 pit-sampling program and reported on November 15, 2018 . Of the 23 holes in this sector, six returned anomalous uranium (U 3 O 8 >30ppm) including three holes with U 3 O 8 intervals of 5 metres >100ppm U 3 O 8 , including 1 metre at 0.7% (7027 ppm) U 3 O 8 (AGI-568, see Table 1 ). The other holes reported herein were drilled at the margins and within the western sector of the Ivana current mineral resource boundary and have confirmed the continuity of the mineralization in a number of locations, as well as the potential expansion to the south from hole AGI-601, which intersected 3 metres at 702 ppm U 3 O 8 including 1metre at  0.17% (1774 ppm) U 3 O 8 (see Figure 1 ).

Notably the majority of these reported holes returned intervals with vanadium grades higher than the average grade of the Ivana deposit, as reported in the current mineral resource estimate published on February 27, 2019 . From the 115 holes reported at this time, 112 holes intercepted values ranging from 1m at +150ppm V 2 O 5 up to 1m at 0.198% (1981 ppm) V 2 O 5 in AGI-601. These higher grades of vanadium, in many cases accompanying uranium, are interpreted as resulting from the presence vanadium oxide minerals like carnotite, a uranium-vanadate, within the first few metres below surface. This interpretation is based on previous mineralogy studies, as reported in the Company's Preliminary Economic Assessment (Kuchling et al., June 28, 2019 filed on SEDAR). Carnotite is a leachable mineral; therefore, the interpretation of higher content of oxidized vanadium minerals may represent additional potential to be assessed in the future.

An additional 2,300 samples collected from the final 209 holes drilled at Ivana in the current program have recently been sent for laboratory analysis.  Analytical results will be published once they are received and interpreted.

Methodology and QA/QC

The drilling program is being carried out by AVG Patagonia Drilling using a FlexiROC D65 drill rig from Atlas Copco, an ore-control track-mounted rig adapted to reverse circulation with triple cyclone to reduce the dust loss during sampling and automatic sampling.

Samples were sent to Bureau Veritas Minerals Argentina for preparation by drying, crushing to 80% passing 10 mesh and then pulverizing a 250g split to 95% passing 150 mesh. The first 190 pulps, including QAQC controls, were then sent to Bureau Veritas Commodities Canada Ltd. for analysis of 45 elements by Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (" ICP-MS ") following a four-acid digestion (method MA-200). The following 898 pulps, also including QAQC samples, were sent to ALS Canada Ltd. for analysis of 48 elements by Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (" ICP-MS ") following a four-acid digestion (method ME-MS61).  Approximately every 10th sample a blank, duplicate, or standard sample is inserted into the sample sequence for quality assurance/quality control (" QA/QC ") purposes. The QA/QC internal assessment determined that analytical results reported herein are within standard industry limits.

Qualified Persons

The design of the Company's exploration program was undertaken by the Company's geological staff under the supervision of David Terry, Ph.D., P.Geo. Dr. Terry is a Director of the Company and a Qualified Person as defined in National Instrument 43-101.  The contents of this news release have been reviewed and approved by Dr. Terry.

About the Amarillo Grande Project

The Company's 100% owned Amarillo Grande Uranium-Vanadium Project in Rio Negro Province , Argentina is a new uranium district controlled by Blue Sky. The Ivana deposit is the cornerstone of the Project and the first part of the district for which both a Mineral Resource Estimate and a Preliminary Economic Assessment have been completed.   Mineralization at the Ivana deposit has characteristics of sandstone-type and surficial-type uranium-vanadium deposits. The sandstone-type mineralization is related to a braided fluvial system and indicates the potential for a district-size system. In the surficial-type deposits, mineralization coats loosely consolidated pebbles, and is amenable to leaching and simple upgrading.

The Project includes several other target areas over a regional trend, at or near surface. The area is flat-lying, semi-arid and accessible year-round, with nearby rail, power and port access. The Company's strategy includes delineating resources at multiple areas and advancing the entire project to prefeasibility level.

For additional details on the project and properties, please see the Company's website.

About Blue Sky Uranium Corp.

Blue Sky Uranium Corp. is a leader in uranium discovery in Argentina . The Company's objective is to deliver exceptional returns to shareholders by rapidly advancing a portfolio of surficial uranium deposits into low-cost producers, while respecting the environment, the communities, and the cultures in all the areas in which we work. Blue Sky has the exclusive right to properties in two provinces in Argentina . The Company's flagship Amarillo Grande Project was an in-house discovery of a new district that has the potential to be both a leading domestic supplier of uranium to the growing Argentine market and a new international market supplier. The Company is a member of the Grosso Group, a resource management group that has pioneered exploration in Argentina since 1993.
