Laramide Resources Ltd. (" Laramide " or the " Company ") (TSX: LAM) (ASX: LAM) (OTCQX: LMRXF) is pleased to announce it has commenced a helicopter supported reconnaissance stream and soil sampling program designed to test for uranium, gold and a suite of other precious and base metals, hosted within favourable geological units on ELs 9319 and 9414 in the Northern Territory. These tenements comprise the Murphy Project ("Murphy" or "the Project") and the current program is the first one undertaken by Laramide since completing the acquisition of Murphy from Rio Tinto Exploration ("RTX") on October 22 2020.  Laramide had previously been in a joint venture earn-in agreement with RTX and, since its involvement with the Project, has commissioned several different types of airborne geophysical surveys including combined magnetics-radiometrics, time-domain electromagnetics, and gravity gradiometry surveys.  A 43-101 technical report incorporating all of these results was filed on May 22, 2020 .

The strategically located Project consists of 683.5 km 2 of granted exploration tenure, which lies contiguous to and along strike from Laramide's Westmoreland Project in northwest Queensland .  The Northern Territory of Australia is a jurisdiction that is supportive of both uranium development and mining and hosts several well-known deposits including the Ranger Mine which produced in excess of 120,000 tonnes of U 3 O 8 over a 35-year period. The Murphy Uranium Province itself produced high-grade uranium during the 1950s and stands out amongst the world's attractive underexplored uranium provinces, having not seen any meaningful exploration since the 1970s.

The current program will be comprised of approximately 80 stream samples over EL9414 (only) and 15 to 20 soil traverses (approximately 300 soil samples), covering radiometric anomalies on both leases. The stream sediment samples comprise a 50 – 100g sample of -80# material sieved down from a 1 – 2kg / -10# bulk. The soil samples will be collected at 200 m along 1 to 2 km long traverses. The program is expected to be completed in 3-4 weeks' time and results of the geochemistry and general reconnaissance undertaken are intended to inform an initial drilling program on Murphy which is planned for the next field season in 2022.

The Murphy leases are located on Aboriginal Land Trust land owned by the Waayni and Garawa people and, prior to commencement of the current program, Laramide sought and received the approval of the traditional owners through the Northern Land Council.  The traditional owners are also represented on the field team currently carrying out the sampling program.

Drilling Commences at Thor ISR Uranium Project in Wyoming

GTI Resources Ltd (GTI or Company) is pleased to advise that 2 mud rotary drill rigs have commenced drilling on schedule at the Thor ISR uranium project in Wyoming's Great Divide basin (Figure 1). This 50,000-foot (-15,000 metre) maiden drill program of circa 100 holes is designed to confirm the grade and tenor of uranium mineralisation that was previously identified by Kerr McGee in the 1980's and to ultimately support definition of an economic ISR uranium resource.

The Company has prioritised the Thor Project area for drilling based on historical exploration data, which includes results of 83 historic drill holes including some drill logs, and the project's location on the mapped REDOX boundary.

5 Largest Uranium Producers in the World

Following a year that saw uranium rank among the best-performing commodities, 2021 has brought a continued rise in the value of the energy fuel, spurring interest in the sector among investors.

Uranium started the year at US$29.63 per pound, and prices have trended higher over the last 11 months, pushing the nuclear fuel to a nine year high in September, when it hit an intraday high of US$50.76.

Production declines caused by 2020 closures aided in the price growth. However, a widespread push towards nuclear as a clean energy source has served as a primary catalyst for uranium's value increase.

Top Uranium Mines in the World

In 2020, world uranium mine production came to 56,287 tonnes of U3O8. Kazakhstan was the top-producing country by far at 19,477 tonnes, followed by Australia and Namibia.

Together, those three nations accounted for over two-thirds of uranium mining, with Kazakhstan taking a 41 percent share. Additionally, a wide variety of uranium-mining companies contribute to the world's production.

But where in the world are the top uranium mines? While many of them are located in Kazakhstan, Canada and Australia, that's not the case for all of the largest uranium mines.
