Planning Finalised for 100,000 ft Uranium Drilling Program

GTI Energy Ltd (GTI or Company) advises that planning is finalised, with permitting & bonding close to completion, for 100,000 ft of drilling at its Great Divide Basin (GDB) Project in Wyoming.


  • ~100,000 ft of drilling is planned at GTI’s Great Divide Basin ISR Project targeting known roll fronts for ISR amenable uranium
  • Includes ~40,000 ft of follow-up drilling at Thor plus ~60,000 ft at Odin, Teebo, Loki & Wicket
  • Drilling is anticipated to start in the coming weeks and finish by Christmas 2022

Exploration Program Overview – Great Divide Basin (GDB)


Thor is the most advanced of the GDB Project areas and is located adjacent to Ur-Energy Inc’s (URE) 18Mlb Lost Creek uranium deposit and operating ISR uranium processing plant2.

Exploration at Thor to date has successfully identified mineralisation with economic potential based on widths, grades & depth of mineralisation (ASX release 29 March 2022)1.

The upcoming program at Thor is now planned, permitted & bonded to include follow-up drilling of up to 70 new holes (~40,000 ft) to target extensions of the 2 miles of mineralised roll front identified from drilling completed earlier this year.

The new drilling will focus on the north-eastern section of the project including the two Wyoming state leases located northeast of the lode claim block which GTI previously successfully explored (Figure 1).


The Wicket East claims abut the southern boundary of Ur-Energy’s Lost Soldier Deposit (Figure 1).

Drilling of up to 20 holes (~20,000ft) at Wicket East seeks to explore a projected mineralised trend extending from the southern boundary of URE’s Lost Soldier property for ~3 miles, as defined by historic drilling information similar in nature to that used to plan the successful maiden drilling program at Thor.


Odin & Teebo are located adjacent to Uranium Energy Corp’s (UEC), former Uranium One, Antelope Project. The Loki claims sit south of UEC’s Antelope & north of URE’s Lost Creek.

Drilling of ~40 holes (~40,000 ft) collectively across Odin, Teebo & Loki also seeks to explore mineralised trends, over a combined length of ~5 miles, as defined by the historic drilling information previously used to plan successful maiden drilling at Thor.


Executive Director Bruce Lane saidpreparation for our follow-up drilling campaign in the Great Divide Basinisnowatanadvancedstage.Wehavesequencedthedrillingtodeliverthefull100,000ftprogram prior to Christmas as originally planned. We are confident that we can successfully execute the drilling this year which will set GTI up to produce a uranium resource report in 2023. We look forward to providing updates in the coming weeks as the programprogresses”.

Rigs Secured For Wyoming Uranium Drilling & Utah Fieldwork Completed

GTI Resources Ltd (GTI or Company) is pleased to advise that 2 mud rotary drill rigs have been secured for its planned drilling campaign at the Thor ISR uranium project in Wyoming’s Great Divide basin (Figure 1). As previously advised, GTI is on track to commence drilling during December. This maiden drill program is designed to confirm the grade and tenor of uranium mineralisation that was previously identified by Kerr McGee in the 1970’s & 80’s and to ultimately support definition of an economic uranium resource.

Biggest Uranium Mines in Australia

Despite sitting on the world's largest known recoverable resources of uranium — 1.68 million tonnes as of 2021 — nuclear power is banned in Australia, and the country uses no part of this material for its energy needs.

Instead, it sells this valuable commodity, with uranium accounting for one-quarter of the nation's energy exports.

Read on to learn more about Australia's role in the uranium industry with a focus on its operating mines and future producers.

ASX Uranium Stocks: 5 Biggest Companies

Despite the global shutdown, uranium prices have continued to do considerably well in recent years. In fact, the energy metal gained a lot of traction and momentum in 2020 and 2021, while the rest of the world was at a standstill, and it has only continued to climb since.

In 2022, the uranium price began spiking early in the year, reaching US$64.50 per pound in mid-April — a height not seen since 2011 and likely the result of the geopolitical tensions in Europe. This year, after settling at around US$50 through March, the energy metal began spiking again. As of November 22, it has climbed to US$80, and it has yet to let up.

Experts say the future of uranium is looking bright. With hopes high for the energy metal, those looking to capitalise on uranium stocks have a lot of upside to bolster their investment case.

Uranium Exploration in Saskatchewan's Athabasca Basin

Canada's vast landscape is home to a wealth of minerals that have put it on the map as a global leader in mining, resource development and energy.

While mostly known for its gold, copper, nickel, oil and gas reserves, the country also hosts the third-largest uranium supply in the world, representing roughly 10 percent of global reserves. As the world continues its transition to a future defined by sustainability and clean energy, Canada's uranium mines may prove instrumental.

The country's Athabasca Basin is already a uranium heavyweight, home to the world's top uranium producing mine. In light of increasing demand for alternative energy sources to fossil fuels, the Basin is attracting considerable uranium exploration. Investors would do well to keep the region on their radar and develop a deeper understanding of the current market for the resource.
