Purepoint Uranium Redefines Turnor Lake Project with Latest Technology and Advanced Data Integration

Purepoint Uranium Redefines Turnor Lake Project with Latest Technology and Advanced Data Integration

Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. (TSXV: PTU) (OTCQB: PTUUF) ("Purepoint" or the "Company") today announced significant exploration advancements at its Turnor Lake project, located in the prolific Athabasca Basin of Northern Saskatchewan. After nearly 15 years since the last major drilling campaign, Turnor Lake is being revitalized with a completely fresh geological and geophysical outlook, positioning it as a potential host for the next major uranium discovery in Saskatchewan. A drill program is currently underway at Turnor Lake, aiming to explore and define the extent of uranium mineralization.

The Turnor Lake project spans 9,705 hectares across vital structural and conductive corridors, aligning with the region's significant uranium discoveries and historical high-grade deposits. Our exploration revitalization is driven by the application of advanced technology and methodologies while integrating a wealth of historical data with ongoing real-time drilling insights.

Scope of Work:

In collaboration with Condor North Consulting ULC, Purepoint is conducting a comprehensive assessment of its historic geophysical surveys, including VTEM EM, magnetics, DC resistivity, TDEM, and gravity surveys. The goal is to develop new geological interpretations and refine the targeting of prospective zones through advanced data integration and modeling techniques.

Key Objectives:

  • Data Integration: Review and integrate historical geophysical survey data, including ground fixed loop TEM, ground gravity, and DC resistivity surveys, with geology from ongoing drilling results.

  • Advanced Modeling: Employ state-of-the-art 3D modeling and analytical methods to enhance the precision of potential deposit locations.

  • Target Identification: Focus on locating good electromagnetic conductors representing fault-controlled graphitic/pelitic zones and identifying fault zones and other structures that could control the locations of uranium deposits.

"Our recent exploration efforts at Turnor Lake have been incredibly promising," said Chris Frostad, President and CEO of Purepoint. "The strategic geological setting, combined with our advanced data integration, positions Turnor Lake as a potential major contributor to the global uranium market. As our current drill program winds up over the next few weeks, we will be in a position to demonstrate the potential of a new and vivid project in the heart of this proven uranium region."

Program Highlights:

  • Magnetics: Generate 2D filtered grids and 3D magnetic susceptibility solutions.

  • VTEM Surveys: Perform layered earth inversions and Maxwell plate modeling on selected targets.

  • Ground TEM Surveys: Develop plate models using data from multiple grids.

  • Gravity and Resistivity: Create 3D models from merged data sets to delineate structural and conductive features.

Exploration Advancements:

The recent upturn in uranium prices and advancements in exploration technology have significantly enhanced the project's potential. By leveraging a meticulous reassessment of an extensive array of historical geophysical surveys and integrating these with ongoing drilling insights, Purepoint aims to redefine the geological understanding of Turnor Lake.

Next Steps:

  • Continue integrating and recalibrating historical geophysical survey data with ongoing drilling results.

  • Implement advanced 3D modeling and analytical methods to refine geological interpretations.

  • Further drilling to explore and define the controls of uranium mineralization.

About the Turnor Lake Project:

The Turnor Lake project, located in the prolific Athabasca Basin of Northern Saskatchewan, stands out as an exceptionally promising uranium exploration endeavor. Spanning 9,705 hectares across vital structural and conductive corridors known for significant uranium discoveries, the project benefits from a strategic geological setting that aligns with historical high-grade deposits in the region.

Comprehensive geophysical surveys and targeted drilling have repeatedly highlighted the potential for substantial uranium mineralization, particularly along the La Rocque Structural Corridor that hosts the Hurricane Uranium Deposit. With existing infrastructure facilitating access and exploration, and recent drilling revealing encouraging mineralization, Turnor Lake is poised to potentially become one of the most significant new contributors to the global uranium market.

Purepoint Uranium Discovers New Lightning Zone Grading 0.29% U3O8 over 0.9 Metres as It Completes 2024 Winter Drill Program at Hook Lake Joint Venture

Purepoint Uranium Discovers New Lightning Zone Grading 0.29% U3O8 over 0.9 Metres as It Completes 2024 Winter Drill Program at Hook Lake Joint Venture

Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. (TSXV: PTU) (OTCQB: PTUUF) ("Purepoint" or the "Company") announced today the completion of its winter drill program at the Hook Lake Joint Venture at the Carter Corridor. The Hook Lake Project is a joint venture between Cameco Corporation (39.5%), Orano Canada Inc. (39.5%), and Purepoint (21%) and lies on trend with high-grade uranium discoveries including Fission Uranium's Triple R Deposit and NexGen's Arrow Deposit.

"This year's drill program ended with a discovery of 0.9 metres of 0.29% U3O8, including 0.3 metres of 0.68% U3O8, associated with a major structure intersected by hole CRT24-10," said Scott Frostad, Vice President Exploration at Purepoint. "Encouragingly, the basement hosted uranium mineralization is within an altered breccia matrix that borders a 10 metre wide graphitic shear. All the 2024 holes intersected anomalous radioactivity and the results continue to show the extensive 20-kilometre conductive structural zone known as the Carter Corridor remains highly prospective for an economic uranium discovery."

Skyharbour Intersects 7.30% U3O8 over 3.0m within 5.0m of 4.61% U3O8 at High-Grade Moore Project and Plans for Upcoming Fully-Funded Summer Drill Programs

Skyharbour Intersects 7.30% U3O8 over 3.0m within 5.0m of 4.61% U3O8 at High-Grade Moore Project and Plans for Upcoming Fully-Funded Summer Drill Programs

Skyharbour Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: SYH ) (OTCQX: SYHBF ) (Frankfurt: SC1P ) (the "Company") is pleased to announce assay results from its 2024 winter diamond drilling program which totaled 2,864 metres in nine holes at its 100% owned, 35,705 hectare Moore Uranium Project. The project is located approximately 15 kilometres east of Denison Mine's Wheeler River project and proximal to regional infrastructure for Cameco's Key Lake and McArthur River operations in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan. A highlight from this program was from hole ML24-08 which intersected 5.0 metres of 4.61% U 3 O 8 from a relatively shallow downhole depth of 265.5 metres to 270.5 metres including 10.19% U 3 O 8 over 1.0 metre at the Main Maverick Zone. Skyharbour plans to continue advancing Moore through additional drilling in 2024 in conjunction with a fully-funded summer drill program to follow-up on the recently reported Fork target uranium discovery at the Company's adjacent Russell Lake Uranium Project. The combined drill campaign this summer is planned to consist of approximately 7,000 - 8,000 metres with details forthcoming.

Baselode Reports High Levels of Radioactivity Over Wide Intercepts at ACKIO Uranium Project

Baselode Reports High Levels of Radioactivity Over Wide Intercepts at ACKIO Uranium Project

  • Over 30 metres of continuous radioactivity, such as 907 cps over 34 m, including 9,173 cps over 0.4 m
  • AK24-118 and AK24-119 returned the widest radioactivity levels in Pod 6
  • All three drill holes with over 20 metres of cumulative thickness of radioactivity
  • The second drill for regional exploration targets has now mobilized to site

Baselode Energy Corp. (TSXV: FIND) (OTCQB: BSENF) ("Baselode" or the "Company") is pleased to announce radioactivity results from the first three diamond drill holes within the ACKIO ("ACKIO") uranium prospect of the Hook project ("Hook") in the Athabasca Basin area of northern Saskatchewan (Figure 1).

"AK24-119's results rank as one of the top 10 best drill hole radioactivity intersections at ACKIO, making this a unique drill hole. Previous drill hole AK22-035 intersected 0.54% U3O8 over 7.3 m (see Baselode News Release dated September 12, 2022) in Pod 6, and we are seeing similar levels of radioactivity within AK24-118 and AK24-119 but over broader widths within the same Pod, suggesting mineralization remains open in this area. ACKIO has continued to deliver encouraging results since the discovery in 2021, and we expect more promising results to follow.
