Nickel-Bearing Sulphides Intersected In All Drillholes; 10,000 Metre Follow-Up Drill Program Planned for June

CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (TSXV: CVV) (OTCQB: CVVUF) (FSE: DH7N) ("CanAlaska" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed a six drill hole 2,350 m drill program on the high-grade Manibridge nickel project in the Thompson Nickel Belt, Manitoba (Table 1). The drill program was focused within one kilometre of the past-producing high-grade Manibridge Mine, that produced 1.3 million tonnes at an average grade of 2.55% nickel and 0.27% copper from 1971 to 1977 (Figure 1).

The drill program intersected disseminated and remobilized nickel-copper sulphide mineralization in all six drillholes (Figure 2). Occurrences of massive and net-textured sulphides were intersected in several holes and intense serpentinization alteration of the sulphide-bearing ultramafic host rocks was also noted. A handheld portable Niton XRF confirms the presence of nickel and copper within the sulphide-bearing intervals and assays are pending.

This drill program was solely funded by Metal Energy Corp. ("Metal Energy") as part of a staged earn-in option agreement with CanAlaska as operator. In future programs, operatorship of the project will be handled by Metal Energy, as per the agreement, and they are planning a 10,000 metre follow-up drill program starting in June of this year.

 CanAlaska CEO, Cory Belyk, comments, "This inaugural drilling program successfully confirmed the presence of nickel mineralization and extended known zones of mineralization. The market for sulphide nickel continues to be strong and it remains the right time to move this project forward for our shareholders. It is anticipated that Metal Energy's continued exploration funding as part of the earn-in agreement will continue to drive this project toward further discovery in 2022 for the benefit of all shareholders."

How Geopolitics are Impacting the Nuclear Fuel Sector

As the war in Ukraine stretches into the third month, it has become evident that the energy sector has been disproportionately affected by embargoes, bans and sanctions against Russia.

With West Texas and Brent Crude oil holding above US$100 a barrel, motorists in North America have seen gas prices rise to record highs. Similarly, natural gas prices have also hit fresh highs this year, as well as coal, which hit an all-time high of US$422 per metric ton (MT) in March.

Uranium, the energy fuel used to power nuclear generators for electricity production, has also experienced a significant price increase since Russia invaded Ukraine.

Purepoint Uranium Outlines Upcoming Exploration Session

Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. (TSXV: PTU) (OTCQB: PTUUF) ("Purepoint" or the "Company") today outlined their remaining 2022 exploration plans for the Hook Lake Joint Venture and eight of their 100% owned projects in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan Canada. These plans include follow-up drilling at the Company's Red Willow project where this winter's program outlined an astounding 1.2 kilometres of continuous elevated radioactivity (see news release April 19, 2022).

"By the end of the year we will have completed updated field work at all of our ten, 100% owned uranium projects. This work has included follow-up drilling at some of our high priority targets, inaugural drilling at our more advanced prospects and initial geophysical work over our earlier stage properties," noted Chris Frostad, President & CEO of Purepoint. "Although we continue to advance our entire portfolio, we are most excited about returning to our newest priority at Red Willow's Osprey Zone. The discovery of a clearly defined continuous zone of radioactivity extending across such a long distance, with peaks exceeding 33,000 counts per second, provides an exciting preview of what our next program may demonstrate."
