Over 60 Kilometres of the Prolific Patterson Lake Corridor

Highly Anomalous Lake Sediment Samples Identified

Meet Management at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference

CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (TSXV: CVV) (OTCQB: CVVUF) (FSE: DH7N) ("CanAlaska" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the acquisition of 28,328 hectares of new uranium claims by staking in the western Athabasca Basin. The new property is located 60 km northeast of the Triple R and Arrow uranium deposits (Figure 1). This under-explored project contains uranium lake sediment anomalies, diabase-related structures in the sandstone, and interpreted hydrothermal alteration zones. The project lies along the mineralized "Patterson Lake Corridor", host to recent high-grade uranium discoveries.

New compilation work indicates that the basement rocks of the Patterson Lake Corridor trend into the project area. Based on the airborne geophysical data, and historical reporting, the basement rocks in the area represent those of the Lloyd domain, consisting of granitic to tonalitic gneisses, with local bodies of structurally-controlled graphitic and chloritic shear zones. To the southwest, these structurally-reactivated graphitic intervals are host to the uranium mineralization at the large Arrow and Triple R deposits, that together host 472.6 million pounds of uranium resources. The Arrow Deposit contains 337.4 million pounds U3O8 in measured, indicated, and inferred categories and the Triple R Deposit contains 135.2 million pounds U3O8 in indicated and inferred categories.

Historical exploration on the property was focused on ground-based geophysical surveys, prospecting, and lake sediment geochemistry. Airborne magnetic, electromagnetic (VTEM), and radiometrics surveys were available to guide the staking of the property. The VTEM survey highlights conductive zones within the Athabasca sandstone that are interpreted to represent alteration zones potentially associated with mineralizing events. The lake sediment surveys in and around the property identified several samples with anomalous uranium, generally between 2 to 5 ppm uranium. These lake sediment values would be considered to be 5 - 10 times background values for regional lake sediment samples in the area. In addition, several samples exceeded 5 ppm uranium, including one sample containing 240 ppm uranium, which is considered to be highly anomalous.

Four historic drillholes were attempted on the property, none of which reached the unconformity. In these drillholes, structural reactivation and alteration of the sandstone is associated with the contacts of diabase dykes that trend through the area. The dyke systems show variable orientations, offset, and cross-cutting relationships. This information, combined with the documented structural reactivation, leads to an interpretation of deep-seated basement structures, which are often assocated with uranium deposition in the Athabasca region.

The Company is completing further compilation on the newly acquired Taggart project and is actively seeking Joint Venture partners.

CanAlaska CEO, Cory Belyk, comments, "This is another exciting project generated by the CanAlaska team along one of the newest uranium deposit corridors in the Athabasca Basin, already host to almost 500 million pounds of uranium. The uranium market fundamentals have never been better and continue to strengthen as the desire for carbon-free energy continues to grow. Projects such as Taggart are fantastic entry points for companies into the "Saudi Arabia of Uranium" and we look forward to working with a new partner to move this project forward."

ValOre Reports Encouraging Trench Results from Tróia Target, Pedra Branca

ValOre Metals Corp. ("ValOre"; TSX ‐ V: VO; OTC: KVLQF; Frankfurt: KEQ0, "the Company") today announced trench channel sample assay results from the Tróia target ("Tróia") at ValOre's 100%-owned Pedra Branca Platinum Group Elements ("PGE", "2PGE+Au") Project ("Pedra Branca") in northeastern Brazil.

"Our geological team continues to deliver at the Pedra Branca palladium-platinum project. Tróia joins Ipueiras and Galante East in our pipeline of drill-ready targets," stated ValOre's V.P. of Exploration, Colin Smith. "The trench results at the Tróia target confirm the presence of in-situ PGE mineralization intercepted in previously reported Trado ® auger drilling and rock sampling and demonstrate potential continuity of the target chromite-bearing ultramafic rocks over 600 m along trend. Mineralization and the target ultramafic intrusion remain fully open at depth and warrant follow-up core or RC drilling."

Purepoint Uranium Initiates Program at 100% Owned Carson Lake Project

Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. (TSXV: PTU) (OTCQB: PTUUF) ("Purepoint" or the "Company") today announced the commencement of an airborne gravitymagnetic survey over their 100% owned Carson Lake Uranium Project which lies on the north-eastern edge of the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada.

The Carson Lake project covers the northeast extension of a major conductive trend that is also present on Purepoint's Red Willow project. The current airborne gravity survey results will help further define north-south trending structures and geologic contacts interpreted from prior magnetic survey results. Interpreted structures that crosscut the conductive trend are considered prospective exploration target areas as structural complexity may have developed and trapped uranium-rich fluids.
