Azincourt Energy Corp. ("Azincourt" or the "Company") ( TSX . V: AAZ OTC: AZURF ) is pleased to announce it is undertaking a ground-based geophysical exploration program at the East Preston uranium project, located in the western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada. Crew and equipment are on site and will commence operations immediately.

The program will be comprised of a horizontal loop electromagnetic survey ("HLEM") to refine and help prioritize areas where untested conductive corridors have been identified in existing property-wide airborne VTEM survey results.  A total of 33 line-km of HLEM surveying will be completed, commencing in late November. The survey was originally scheduled for the summer but has been delayed due to Covid-19 restrictions and disruptions.

A diamond drilling program is anticipated for follow up to continue to test prospective conductor trends on the property.  Target selection will be finalized after the Company interprets the results of the HLEM survey and reviews the existing target inventory.

Unconformity related uranium deposits associated with the Athabasca Basin are closely associated with basement conductive packages. VTEM surveys have identified conductive corridors within the East Preston land package. The HLEM survey will narrow down where within these corridors drilling should focus.

"The collection of this data and refinement of conductor locations within the identified corridors will ensure that our highest priority areas are being targeted and tested effectively," said Exploration Manager, Trevor Perkins.

About East Preston

Azincourt is currently earning towards 70% interest in the 25,000+ hectare East Preston project as part of a joint venture agreement with Skyharbour Resources (TSX.V: SYH), and Dixie Gold Inc (TSX.V: DG) (Figure 2: Project Location – Western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada). Three prospective conductive, low magnetic signature corridors have been discovered on the property. The three distinct corridors have a total strike length of over 25 km, each with multiple EM conductor trends identified.   Ground prospecting and sampling work completed to date has identified outcrop, soil, biogeochemical and radon anomalies, which are key pathfinder elements for unconformity uranium deposit discovery.

The East Preston Project has multiple long linear conductors with flexural changes in orientation and offset breaks in the vicinity of interpreted fault lineaments – classic targets for basement-hosted unconformity uranium deposits. These are not just simple basement conductors; they are clearly upgraded/enhanced prospectivity targets because of the structural complexity.

The targets are basement-hosted unconformity related uranium deposits similar to NexGen's Arrow deposit and Cameco's Eagle Point mine. East Preston is near the southern edge of the western Athabasca Basin, where targets are in a near surface environment without Athabasca sandstone cover – therefore they are relatively shallow targets but can have great depth extent when discovered. The project ground is located along a parallel conductive trend between the PLS-Arrow trend and Cameco's Centennial deposit (Virgin River-Dufferin Lake trend).

Purepoint Uranium Defines Eight Drill Targets at 100% Owned Carson Lake and Russell South Projects

Purepoint Uranium Defines Eight Drill Targets at 100% Owned Carson Lake and Russell South Projects

Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. (TSXV: PTU) (OTCQB: PTUUF) ("Purepoint" or the "Company") today released the interpreted results of its summer airborne gravitymagnetic survey over their 100% owned Carson Lake and Russell South Uranium Projects which lie on the eastern edge of the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan Canada.

"We are excited to add these new prospects to our pipeline of drill-ready projects and will be evaluating them for inclusion in our 2023 drill programs," said Scott Frostad, VP Exploration at Purepoint. "These targets are considered to be associated with major uranium finds along the eastern part of the Basin and the completion of the airborne geophysical surveying has provided a clear path to commence drilling."

Baselode Reports Seven Drill Holes With Uranium Mineralization Starting Within 50 Metres of Surface

Baselode Reports Seven Drill Holes With Uranium Mineralization Starting Within 50 Metres of Surface

  • 17 drill holes with uranium mineralization:
    • 10 confirm high-grade uranium mineralization* above 0.5% U 3 O 8
    • 7 intersected uranium mineralization between 25 and 50 metres below surface
    • 4 intersected uranium mineralization between 50 and 100 metres below surface
  • AK22-047: 1.67% U 3 O 8 over 7.5 m at 99.3 m true vertical depth includes 2.45% U 3 O 8 over 5.0 m
  • AK22-052: 0.58% U 3 O 8 over 27.6 m at 28.1 m true vertical depth includes 0.86% U 3 O 8 over 7.9 m and 0.75% U 3 O 8 over 7.65 m
  • 25 of the 44 drill holes intersecting elevated radioactivity are now reported

Baselode Energy Corp. (TSXV: FIND) (OTCQB: BSENF) (" Baselode " or the " Company ") is pleased to announce the geochemical assay results from an additional twenty-eight drill holes of the now-complete 22,500 metre diamond drill program (the " Program ") on the ACKIO high-grade uranium discovery (" ACKIO "), Hook project, Athabasca Basin area (the " Athabasca "), northern Saskatchewan (see Table 1 and Figure 1 ).

"We are enthusiastic about confirming additional near-surface, high-grade uranium mineralization in several drill holes at ACKIO. Four of the reported drill holes (AK22-038, -051, -052, -058) have intersected uranium mineralization starting at the glacial overburden contact with bedrock. That's as shallow as possible at ACKIO and very encouraging. There hasn't been mineralization as shallow as these results reported in the Athabasca in the past few decades. The Athabasca is renowned for the world's highest uranium grades, commonly over 1% U 3 O 8 , and drill hole AK22-047 delivers 1.67% U 3 O 8 over 7.5 m starting within 100 m of surface. Seven drill holes returned broad intersection widths ranging from 10 metres to 30 metres, and some with total assay composite drill hole widths up to 60 metres. These reported drill hole results reinforce that ACKIO has shallow, broad and high-grade uranium mineralization, characteristic of historic Athabasca -open pit mining operations. We believe ACKIO has significant upside potential, and we look forward to planning the next phase of diamond drilling to discover more shallow, high-grade uranium mineralization," said James Sykes , CEO, President and Director of Baselode.

ValOre Trench Assays Confirm In-Situ PGE Mineralization on Drill-Ready Galante and Ipueiras Targets, Pedra Branca PGE Project, Brazil

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

"The final trench at Galante, and two additional trenches at Ipueiras, returned significant intervals of surface PGE mineralization," stated ValOre's VP of Exploration, Colin Smith. "Trench assay results confirm the presence of in-situ PGEs, demonstrate potential continuity of target chromite-bearing ultramafic rocks, and warrant follow-up testing in future drill programs."
