The Company can earn up to a 100% interest in the Project by undertaking work and payments in a single stage over a four year period. In order to meet conditions of the four year earn-in, CanAlaska will make total cash payments of $50,000, issue 300,000 common shares in the Company subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, and complete work totalling $850,000 as outlined in Table 1. In addition, a 1.5% Net Smelter Return (NSR) royalty will be granted to Durama to complete the earn-in. CanAlaska will retain the right to bring in third-party funding and parties to complete the option requirements.

The Key Extension Project lands cover the highly prospective Wollaston-Mudjatik transition zone (WMTZ) in the Southeastern Athabasca Basin (Figure 2). The Project lands have been explored with historical regional and project scale ground and airborne geophysical surveys, with additional focused prospecting programs targeting lake sediment and boulder anomalies.

The Project lands have undergone minimal drill testing despite the prolonged regional exploration and Key Lake deposit discoveries in the area. in the late 1970's consisting of shallow regional tests of conductors. The Key Lake deposits and associated showings are located approximately 10 km from the northeastern project boundary. The Key Lake deposits consist of a series of east-northeast striking pods of unconformity associated uranium mineralization, which have historically produced over 150 million lbs U3O8 from the Gaertner and Deilmann open pits. The deposit-controlling Key Lake structure and stratigraphy are interpreted to trend onto the Project lands based on the magnetic lineaments and conductor patterns in the geophysical data.

Planned Work Programs

Work permit applications have been submitted to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment for the 2022 field season. Work will consist of a ground gravity survey focused on the Key Lake structure corridor targeting Eagle Point and Arrow uranium deposit analogues. A regional geological prospecting program and re-interpretation of a historical VTEM survey are also planned for the Key Extension project. Diamond drilling is planned for late 2022 targeting results of the ground gravity, VTEM re-interpretation, and geological prospecting.

CanAlaska CEO, Cory Belyk, comments, "CanAlaska is very pleased to enter into the purchase option with Durama. It is a rare opportunity in the eastern Athabasca Basin to gain access to an underexplored section of the prolific Key Lake structure just 15 kilometres from the operating Key Lake uranium mill. The application of geological knowledge gained from recent basement-hosted uranium deposit discoveries at Eagle Point and Arrow have never been applied on this section of the Key Lake Fault providing incredible discovery opportunity for our shareholders."

Justin Huhn: Uranium Price, Supply and Stocks in 2024 — Plus Cameco Analysis

All eyes were on uranium at the end of 2023 as the energy fuel soared through US$100 per pound.

But where is the market headed this year? Justin Huhn, founder and publisher of Uranium Insider, shared his thoughts in an extensive interview with the Investing News Network, emphasizing his continued bullishness.

Outlining current supply/demand dynamics, Huhn said that although 2023's sizeable deficit of about 40 million pounds will shrink a little in 2024, he sees a "very large" deficit persisting for a number of years.

How Supply & Demand is Likely Driving the Uranium Market to Reach a 16-Year Peak This Year

FN Media Group News Commentary - Experts predict that the global uranium market is likely to reach a 16 year peak in 2024. A recent article in Reuters headlined: "Supply risks fuel uranium's flight to more than 16-year peak." The article said that Uranium prices have hit their highest in more than 16 years on a buying frenzy triggered after the world's largest miner of the nuclear fuel highlighted production risks, but the price surge is likely to mean the restart of mothballed capacity. It added: "Kazakhstan's Kazatomprom (KZAP) in January 2024 said it may cut its 2024 production plan due to difficulties with the availability of sulphuric acid needed to produce uranium. Uranium oxide prices, under pressure for years after the Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011 battered demand, picked up momentum in August 2021 when disruptions caused by COVID lockdowns hit supplies and created shortages. They have since rocketed 250%, and are up 15% so far this month to their highest since November 2007 at $106 a lb. After a decade of dormancy, uranium suddenly came to life in mid-2021, rising above its long-standing cap at $30 a lb, which also happens to be the global industry's marginal cost of mined production," said Liberum analyst Tom Price. Liberum forecasts a 300,000 lb deficit this year, down from a shortfall of 1.1 million lbs in 2023, and estimates 2024 demand at 174.7 million lbs, up from 170.4 million lbs last year." Active mining companies in the markets this week include Stallion Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: STUD) (OTCQB: STLNF), IsoEnergy Ltd. (OTCQX: ISENF) (TSX-V: ISO), FISSION URANIUM CORP. (OTCQX: FCUUF), Denison Mines Corp (NYSE American: DNN) (TSX: DML), NexGen Energy Ltd. (NYSE: NXE).

Top Stories This Week: Cameco Gives 2024 Guidance, Billionaire-backed KoBold Touts Big Copper Find

It was a quiet week for gold after last week's US Federal Reserve excitement. The yellow metal largely stayed the course, moving in a relatively narrow range to end the period just under US$2,025 per ounce.

Elsewhere in precious metals, the palladium price fell below the platinum price for the first time since April 2018, slipping as low as US$876.60 per ounce on Thursday (February 8). Palladium hit an all-time high in 2022, but substitution from automakers, which use both platinum and palladium in catalytic converters, is now weighing on its price.
