Survey Defines Multiple Target Areas for Thompson-Style Nickel-Sulphide Deposits; Focused on Tier 1 High-Grade Nickel Discovery

CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (TSXV: CVV) (OTCQX: CVVUF) (FSE: DH7N) ("CanAlaska or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has received and processed the results of an airborne Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic ("VTEM Plus") and Horizontal Magnetic Gradiometer geophysical survey on its 100%-owned Hunter project in the Thompson Nickel Belt (Figure 1). Preliminary evaluation of the geophysical survey has identified several target areas within the Hunter Project (Figure 2). The survey was completed by Geotech Ltd. of Aurora, Ontario and consisted of 882 line-kms of surveying.

The Hunter project is underlain by Archean rocks and Ospwagan Group metasediments with ultramafic intrusions. The project area was explored by a variety of companies from the 1950's to 2000's, which led to the discovery of the Mel nickel deposit, located immediately to the east of the project. In addition, historical drill intersections on the property and in the surrounding claims have high-grade nickel sulphide mineralization associated with ultramafic rocks within Ospwagan Group metasediments. The Ospwagan Group metasediments, specifically the Pipe Formation, are host to the world-class Thompson Nickel Deposit.

The Company's newly completed VTEM Plus survey shows a good correlation between the interpreted geology and geophysical survey data, both in the electromagnetic and magnetic responses. The survey highlights NE-SW magnetic lineament trends associated with variably conductive electromagnetic responses, interpreted to represent Ospwagan Group metasediments and associated ultramafics. In addition, the survey identified geophysical signatures that may suggest more Ospwagan Group metasediments (nickel deposit host stratigraphy) in the project area than previously documented. The VTEM Plus survey also confirmed that the modeled conductor interpreted to be the extension of the host geological horizons associated with the Mel nickel deposit to the east of the project area trend onto the Hunter project. The Company has identified three initial high-priority target areas based on the newly acquired survey data and the presence of known mineralized occurrences within and along trend of these targets. The Company is completing a 3D magnetic vector inversion (MVI) of the VTEM Plus survey data and Maxwell Modelling of electromagnetic anomalies to further refine drill targets.

CanAlaska CEO, Cory Belyk, comments, "This airborne survey has provided a significant amount of new detail to the Hunter project target inventory. The possible identification of additional host stratigraphy than was previously known highlights the value-add of this new survey to prioritize areas for future drilling campaigns. The Hunter project is just one piece of the Company's extensive land holdings in this prolific and world-class nickel belt that provides our shareholders with discovery opportunity of a critical metal for a clean energy future. CanAlaska is actively seeking joint venture partners to help move these nickel projects toward discovery."

About the Hunter Project

CanAlaska's Hunter project encompasses 8,232 hectares within the world-class Thompson Nickel Belt. The Project is located 20 km north of Thompson, Manitoba, which has significant infrastructure and capacity that has supported previous exploration programs and mine development, including year-round highway access.

Other News

The Company is actively advancing a new uranium discovery on its West McArthur uranium project in the eastern Athabasca Basin. As part of the summer program, the Company reported a 6.3 metre long interval of elevated radioactivity in the basement of WMA067, 100 m below the unconformity. WMA067 is located along a newly defined exploration trend, approximately 6 kilometres along strike to the southwest of the Company's 42 Zone mineralization. The summer drilling program is part of a $5 million program operated by CanAlaska, which holds a 77.13% ownership in the project.

Baselode Provides Interpretations of the Recently Released Uranium Assay Results

Baselode Energy Corp. (TSXV: FIND) (OTCQB: BSENF) (" Baselode " or the " Company ") is pleased to provide a video presentation that details geologic interpretations of the recently released uranium assay results (see News Releases dated September 12 and September 20, 2022 ) from the ACKIO high-grade uranium discovery (" ACKIO "), Hook project, Athabasca Basin area (the " Athabasca "), northern Saskatchewan .

The video provides new geological cross-sections from ACKIO which detail the structures, folds and lithological boundaries that are believed to control mineralization, including potential cross-structures and a SW trending lithological contact that have yet to be tested with diamond drills.  The video also provides more context regarding the exploration holes drilled furthest to the southeast on ACKIO and supports the potential for mineralization to still be open in this direction.

Ellis Martin Report: Skyharbour Resources Ltd  CEO Jordan Trimble Provides an Update on the Athabasca Uranium Projects

Ellis Martin Report: Skyharbour Resources Ltd CEO Jordan Trimble Provides an Update on the Athabasca Uranium Projects

Malibu, CA, United States (ABN Newswire) - Join Ellis Martin for a conversation with Jordan Trimble, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Skyharbour Resources Ltd (CVE:SYH) (OTCMKTS:SYHBF) (FRA:SC1P) a preeminent uranium and thorium exploration Company with projects located in the prolific Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan, Canada. In this segment Mr. Trimble reviews the macroeconomics of the current uranium market and the company's latest partner project news.

Skyharbour Resources is pleased to announce the commencement of a phase two diamond drilling program at its Mann Lake project located 25 km southwest of the McArthur River Mine and 15 km to the northeast along strike of Cameco's Millennium uranium deposit.

Highlights:

Phase two drilling is designed to follow-up on exciting targets generated from phase one drilling and recently completed geophysical surveys at Mann Lake.

Approximately 4,000 metres of core drilling is planned for phase two covering the southern portion of the project.

The first hole of phase two will follow-up on uranium mineralization in hole MN22-002 (see Company's news release dated September 7, 2022).

Drilling will also test conductive zones and structures identified in this summer's Mobile MT survey along the unconformity contact that corresponds to prevalent gravity lows located near the southeastern portion of the project (see Company's news release dated September 13, 2022).

About Skyharbour Resources Ltd.:

Skyharbour Resources (CVE:SYH) (OTCMKTS:SYHBF) holds an extensive portfolio of uranium and thorium exploration projects in Canada's Athabasca Basin and is well positioned to benefit from improving uranium market fundamentals with six drill-ready projects. In July 2016, Skyharbour acquired an option from Denison Mines, a large strategic shareholder of the Company, to acquire 100% of the Moore Uranium Project which is located approximately 15 kilometres east of Denison's Wheeler River project and 39 kilometres south of Cameco's McArthur River uranium mine. Moore is an advanced stage uranium exploration project with high grade uranium mineralization at the Maverick Zone. Drill results have returned up to 6.0% U3O8 over 5.9 metres, including 20.8% U3O8 over 1.5 metres at a vertical depth of 265 metres. Skyharbour has signed option agreements with Orano Canada Inc. and Azincourt Energy whereby Orano and Azincourt can earn in up to 70% of specific segments of the Preston Project through a combined $9,800,000 in total exploration expenditures, as well as $1,700,000 in total cash payments and Azincourt shares. Preston is a large, geologically prospective property proximal to Fission Uranium's Triple R deposit as well as NexGen Energy's Arrow deposit. The Company also owns a 100% interest in the Falcon Point Uranium Project which hosts a high-grade surface showing with up to 68% U3O8 in grab samples from a massive pitchblende vein, the source of which has yet to be discovered. The Company's 100% owned Mann Lake Uranium project on the east side of the Basin is strategically located adjacent to the Mann Lake Joint Venture operated by Cameco, where high-grade uranium mineralization has been identified. Skyharbour's goal is to maximize shareholder value through new mineral discoveries, committed long-term partnerships, and the advancement of exploration projects in geopolitically favourable jurisdictions.
