Marvel Discovery Corp. (TSX-V:MARV)(Frankfurt:O4T1)(MARVF:OTCQB); (the "Company") is pleased to announce it has entered into an option agreement to acquire two large claim groups the ("KLR" and "Walker") from an arm's length party. This positions Marvel in a highly advantageous position along the Key Lake fault adjoining both Cameco and Fission's property boundaries. The two claim groups collectively cover 14,190 hectares along the East, North and Northwestern directions

The project lies within the Wollaston-Mudjactic Transition Zone ("WMTZ") of the eastern Athabasca Basin which is host to the highest-grade uranium mines in the world including:

  • Cigar Lake1, 50% owned by Cameco, which hosts 152 million pounds (lbs) of U3O8 at 15.4% U3O8
  • McArthur River2, 70% owned by Cameco which hosts 392 million lbs of U3O8 at 6.58% U3O8
  • Wheeler Project3, 90% owned by Denison Mines which hosts 109 million lbs of U3O8 in two deposits averaging 11.23% U3O8

The KLR, first claim group consists of 3,595 hectares (ha) and is contiguous to the former producing Key Lake Uranium Mine. The Key Lake Deposit consisted of two mineralized zones which historically produced a total of 4.2 million tonnes of product at an average grade of 2.1% U3O8 (Harvey, 1999). The Key Lake Property is now host to the Key Lake Mill, owned, and operated by Cameco which processes ore from the McArthur River uranium deposit.

The Walker Property, second claim group covers an area of 10,595 ha and is contiguous to Fission 3.0 Hobo Lake uranium properties. Hosted within WMTZ, the Walker Property lies along the Key Lake Shear Zone and hosts 10 uranium showings and multiple unexplored EM targets. Both properties are easily accessible by highway. Exploration to date on the Properties has been limited.

These 2 claims groups are in addition to Marvel's recent acquisition of the Highway North Project and are directly tied on to the North and South property boundaries within the same WMTZ corridor which covers an area of 2,573 ha (See Press Release Feb 28, 2022) Marvel now has a controlling interest in the camp totaling 16,763 ha.

Figure 1. location of KLR & Walker Claims highlighted in Red, with outlined Highway North Project.

"We are extremely fortunate to have acquired the KLR and Walker claim groups being directly tied on to the north and south of our recently acquired Highway North Project. This brings our new total to over 16,000 hectares along a trend that hosts some of the highest-grade uranium mines in the world. Being next door to the former Key Lake Uranium Mine and Cameco's Key Lake Mill is highly strategic move as we advanced the project. This corridor along the Key Lake Shear Zone represents tremendous opportunity in mimicking the success of basement-hosted uranium deposits found on the western side of the Athabasca Basin like NexGen Energy's Arrow Deposit." Mr. Karim Rayani, President & Chief Executive Officer Commented.

Regional Geology and Mineralization

In Saskatchewan, uranium deposits have been discovered at, above, and up to 300m below, the Athabasca Group unconformity within basement rocks. Mineralization can occur hundreds of meters into the basement or can be up to 100m above, in Athabasca Group sandstone. Typically, uranium is present as uraninite/pitchblende that occurs as veins and semi-massive to massive replacement bodies. Mineralization is also spatially associated with steeply-dipping, graphitic basement structures and may have been remobilized during successive structural reactivation events. Such structures can be important fluid pathways as well as structural or chemical traps for mineralization as reactivation events have likely introduced further uranium into mineralized zones and provided a means for remobilization (Jefferson, et al. 2007) (Figure 2).

Figure 2. Classic uranium deposits of the Athabasca Basin at the unconformity between the Athabasca sandstone and crystalline basement within the WMTZ. The Triple R, Eagle Point, Cluff Lake and Arrow deposits are found within basement rocks of the Crystalline Granulite Domain in the western Athabasca Basin. The KLR and Walker properties lie within the basement rocks just south of the former Key Lake Mine within the WMTZ. Source Searchlight Resources.

Both Properties straddle the Key Lake Fault Zone, an important corridor for structurally controlled Athabasca Basin type uranium deposits. The Arrow Deposit, owned by NexGen Energy lies along a similar structural corridor as the Marvel properties. The Arrow Deposit1, which has undergone a Positive Feasibility Study with robust economics contains Probable Reserves of 239.6 million lbs of U3O8 at an average of 2.37% U3O8 and Measured and Indicated Resources of 256.7 million lbs at an average grade of 3.1% U3O8. The Arrow Deposit is the largest undeveloped uranium deposit in Canada.

The Transaction

As consideration for the Option, the Company has agreed to pay the vendor (the "Optionee") a total of $550,000 over a 4-year period and incur $1,500,000 in exploration expenditures by the 3rd anniversary date of the signed agreement. In addition, the Optionee will retain a of a 1.0% net smelter royalty ("NSR"), of which Marvel will have the right to purchase 100% of the NSR for $1,000,000.

Marvel Provides Exploration Update At Its Hope Brook Project Contiguous To Benton-Sokoman JV, NFLD.

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE /September 23, 2022 / Marvel Discovery Corp.(TSXV:MARV)(Frankfurt:O4T)(OTCQB:MARVF), ("Marvel");and Falcon Gold Corp. (FG: TSX-V), (3FA: GR), (FGLDF: OTCQB), ("Falcon");and together (the "Alliance") are pleased to provide an update on their combined exploration focus for their Hope Brook Projects which are strategically located contiguous to Benton-Sokoman's Joint Venture, and First Mining's ground which was recently optioned to Big Ridge Exploration. The Alliance had originally planned to complete high resolution magnetic gradiometer surveys over the project area, a proven method to distinguish structural complexities in geological terranes. Start of the survey work has been delayed due to helicopter availability from forest fires in Central Newfoundland, a state of emergency was issued. Providing the Alliance an opportunity to conduct a geophysical review and structural interpretation over the Hope Brook project area in advance of the survey and surface work. The Alliance is pleased to announce that the geophysical review has identified kilometer-scale shear zone corridors, and a major fold closure, interpreted from the magnetic patterns, within the Hope Brook Property area. These will be the focus of prospecting and till sampling projects employed to verify the structures and determine their mineralization potential. With recent success in identifying anomalous gold, tungsten, silver, and copper reported by Falcon at their Gander North Property (September 15, 2022), the Alliance has shifted their exploration focus to the Gander district.

Top 5 Gold Stocks on the TSX (Updated November 2022)

Click here to read the previous best gold stocks article.

The gold price is finally gaining some ground after falling below US$1,650 per ounce in September for the first time since 2020. The yellow metal neared US$1,800 in mid-November and is now sitting above US$1,750.

Even so, gold is still under pressure, and some experts think now is the time to buy. The Investing News Network spoke with Mark Yaxley, managing director of bullion dealer SWP, twice in November, and he shared his advice on buying bullion both times.

"My advice … to my clients, who are mostly Canadians and Americans, is maybe you should be mirroring eastern investors and taking advantage of these dips at this price level," he said in his first interview, explaining that westerners often wait for positive price performance to buy gold. In the second discussion, he shared his three guidelines when buying bullion.
