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."

Top Uranium Mines in the World

In 2021, world uranium mine production came to 56,995 metric tons (MT) of U3O8. Kazakhstan was the top-producing country by far at 21,819 MT, followed by Namibia and Canada.

Together, those three nations accounted for over half of global uranium production, with Kazakhstan taking a 38 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, Namibia, Canada and Australia, that's not the case for all of the largest uranium mines.
