Laramide Resources Ltd. Announces the Engagement of SLR International Corporation to Produce a Preliminary Economic Assessment on the Crownpoint/Churchrock Uranium Project

Laramide Resources Ltd. (" Laramide " or the " Company ") (TSX: LAM) (ASX: LAM) (OTCQX: LMRXF) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, NuFuels, Inc. has engaged SLR International Corporation ("SLR") of Denver, Colorado to complete an NI 43-101 Preliminary Economic Assessment(" PEA") on Laramide's 100% owned Crownpoint Churchrock Uranium Project in New Mexico ("Churchrock" or "The Project").

Laramide has commissioned the PEA Study to produce a current economic analysis based on the Mineral Resources at Churchrock with processing at the Crownpoint facilities. Parameters of the study include contribution from seven new drill hole results to confirm and validate previously reported drilling results and radiometric equilibrium used in the September 2017 Mineral Resource estimate. The PEA will focus on generating an in-situ recovery ("ISR") production schedule with several phases of expansion and a scoping level design for an ISR well field, eventual plant and supporting structure, as well as a preliminary economic evaluation for the Project.

"Churchrock and Crownpoint are large mineral assets which Laramide strategically acquired in 2017 while uranium prices were depressed, and in light of rapidly improving sector fundamentals Laramide is now moving deliberately to position the asset for future production. This PEA, which will be the first economic study prepared to NI 43-101 and JORC standards, will provide the market with a broad overview of the scale, quality, and longevity of an ISR asset that we believe has the potential to become a meaningful contributor to future US domestic security of supply. This is an issue of increasing importance in US energy policy considerations and one which appears to have bipartisan domestic support as witnessed by the recent passage of the IRA (Inflation Reduction Act) in which nuclear power featured quite prominently," says Marc Henderson , President and CEO of Laramide Resources Ltd.

"We are pleased to announce the appointment of SLR (formerly Roscoe Postle Associates, "RPA") for this assignment. SLR brings a unique depth of knowledge and experience on uranium mining which is a relatively niche mining sector. The SLR team has direct experience with more than ninety uranium projects around the world including all major assets in the U.S., Canada , Kazakhstan , Mongolia and Africa ," says David Thomas , General Manager U.S. Operations, NuFuels, Inc., Laramide's fully owned U.S. subsidiary.

Background on Crownpoint /Churchrock Uranium Project:

The Crownpoint /Churchrock Uranium Project consists of 3,458 acres within the historic Grants Mining District in McKinley County, New Mexico . The Project is a compilation of significant historical work completed by major mining and energy companies.

The United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has granted a license for production of uranium from sections of Churchrock.

In 2017, SLR as Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. ("RPA") produced a Technical Report on the Churchrock properties from drill hole data available as of September 2017 . Data from previous operators was consolidated and digitized resulting in a database of 1,667 drill holes totaling approximately 1,841,545 feet of drilling. Using a 0.5 ft-% eU 3 O 8 Grade Thickness (GT) cut-off, the Inferred Mineral Resource totals 33.9 Mst at an average grade of 0.08% eU 3 O 8 for a contained metal of 50.8 Mlb U 3 O 8 .

The current Mineral Resource is classified as Inferred based on the historic nature of the drilling data and drill hole density along mineralized trends contained within the sandstone units of the Brushy Basing and Westwater Canyon Members of the Morrison Formation.

A discharge permit for the underground injection and control associated with the Project will be required by New Mexico Water Quality Control Commission rules. To complete the New Mexico Environmental Department Groundwater Discharge Plan requirements, the Company must demonstrate in a laboratory environment the ability, post leaching, to restore groundwater in the mining aquifer to an acceptable level.  To complete this leach study, fresh core is required from the Project.

Laramide Resources Ltd. (" Laramide " or the " Company ") (TSX: LAM) (ASX: LAM) (OTCQX: LMRXF) is pleased to announce completion of the initial diamond drilling phase of the project ramp-up at its 100% owned NRC licensed Crownpoint-Churchrock Uranium Project, near Gallup, New Mexico, USA ("Crownpoint").  The diamond drill program, having a total drilled length of 6,030 feet (1,838 meters) was comprised of seven drill holes located in areas of uranium mineralization within Section 17, Township 16 North South, Range 16 West and located along the boundary between Section 17 and Section 8. Three of these drill holes were "twin holes" drilled within 20 feet (ft) of historic drill holes designed to confirm the stratigraphic position of uranium mineralization, the relative thicknesses of mineralized intervals, the range of uranium grades that were encountered in the historical drill holes and to provide drill core for chemical assays and radiometric equilibrium analysis. The project is being managed by NuFuels, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Laramide Resources Ltd., which oversees Laramide's uranium asset portfolio in the United States . As reported on December 13, 2022 and January 23, 2023 Laramide has appointed SLR International Corporation ("SLR") of Denver, Colorado, to complete an NI 43-101 Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") with respect to the Churchrock Uranium Project (the "Project").
