Skyharbour's Partner Company Medaro Mining Completes Airborne Geophysical Survey at Yurchison Uranium Property, Saskatchewan

Skyharbour Resources Ltd.'s (TSX-V: SYH ) (OTCQB: SYHBF ) (Frankfurt: SC1P ) (the "Company") partner company Medaro Mining ("Medaro") is pleased to announce that it has completed an airborne geophysical survey at its Yurchison Uranium Property in Athabasca Basin, Northern Saskatchewan.

Medaro contracted Geodata Solutions GDS Inc. of Laval, Quebec to complete a high-resolution helicopter-borne magnetic survey on mining claim MC00011054 of the Yurchison Property. A total of 1,424 line kilometres of survey was completed at 50 metres line spacing using an AS 350 BA + helicopter (see Table 1 below for details). The mining claim MC00011054 is located in the middle of the Yurchison Property.

Table 1: Flight Path Specification:

A Helicopter Versatile Time Domain ElectroMagnetic (VTEM) geophysics survey was flown by Geotech Ltd. on behalf of JNR Resources on the Yurchison Property in October 2006 and identified ten Zones of Interest-based on the electromagnetic (EM) conductors and the total field magnetic response (Figure 1) (assessment report 74H08-0041). Zones of Interest are areas with the potential to host uranium mineralization based on their geophysical signature. This historic survey was flown at 200 metres line spacing, so Medaro decided to fly the current survey at 50 metres line spacing to obtain more detailed resolution on the anomalies. The EM conductors, shown as red dotted lines in Figure 1, are along an SW-NE trend parallel to the rock unit boundaries and a major fault (Needle Falls Shear Zone). The magnetic geophysics survey will provide structural information, especially the location of the N-S trending Tabbernor faults (black dashed lines in Figure 1). The intersection of the major fault and the Tabbernor faults and the graphitic metasedimentary rocks are exploration targets for uranium mineralization. The Zones of Interest also correspond to the contact between two different rock units (Figure 1).

The 2006 VTEM survey was followed up with a 2008 drill program by JNR Resources with drill highlights on claim MC00011054 including (Figure 1 and assessment report 64E05-0034):

  • 82 ppm U from 11.5-12.5 m (1.0 m interval) in drill hole YL-08-111 in granitic pegmatite
  • 240 ppm U, 3750 ppm Mo from 22.5-23.0 m (0.5 m interval) in drill hole YL-08-112 in granitic pegmatite
  • 84.4 ppm U from 57.0-57.5 m (0.5 m interval) in drill hole YL-08-114 in graphitic carbonate breccia

The combination of the exploration pathfinders: the intersection of N-S Tabbernor faults and SW-NE major fault, rock unit boundaries, EM conductors and uranium anomalies intersected by drill holes (well above background levels) makes claim MC00011054 an exciting exploration target on the Yurchison Property and Medaro Mining is looking forward to examining the results of our March 2022 helicopter-borne magnetic survey. The survey data is being processed and results will be released as soon as available.

The survey crew was based at KM147 Lamp Lighters lodge, Saskatchewan, located about 15 kilometres to the south of the Yurchison Property. The area was flown following a pre-defined 3D flight surface having a rate of climb/descent of 20% and a minimum ground clearance of 35 metres over the survey area. Altitude was ultimately controlled at the discretion of the helicopter pilot with safety held in priority consideration.

Medaro Mining CEO, Michael Mulberry, states: "We are excited to get the spring exploration season started. The results from this airborne study will provide additional targets for our ground exploration crew slated to start at Yurchison on June 1 st . Additionally, I would like to announce that we have entered into a consulting process facilitated by the Ya'Thi Nene Land and Resource Office. This gives us direct access to consult with leadership and residents of the Athabasca Basin, or locally known as Nuhnene."

About Yurchison Uranium Project:

Historical prospecting near old trenches returned significant uranium (ranging from 0.09% to 0.30% U 3 O 8 ) and molybdenum (ranging from 2,500 ppm to 6,400 ppm Mo) mineralization in both outcrop and float samples. Two historical holes drilled beneath the trenches returned highly anomalous molybdenum values, up to 3,750 ppm and anomalous uranium values up to 240 ppm. The Property boasts strong discovery potential for both basement hosted uranium mineralization as well as copper, zinc, and molybdenum mineralization. Regionally, Rio Tinto entered into a $30 million, seven-year, option agreement with Forum Energy Metals Corp. to acquire an 80% stake in their Janice Lake property which is located on-strike to the southwest of the Property.

Baselode Discovers New Zone of Radioactivity Six Kilometres Northeast of ACKIO

Baselode Discovers New Zone of Radioactivity Six Kilometres Northeast of ACKIO

  • Intersected over 30 metres of continuous radioactivity within a massive hydrothermal alteration system
  • New zone discovered on the second drill hole of Hook's regional exploration program, 6 km from ACKIO discovery
  • Demonstrates the fertility of the uranium corridor along Baselode's Hook Project

Baselode Energy Corp. (TSXV: FIND) (OTCQB: BSENF) ("Baselode" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the discovery of a new uranium prospect on the Hook project ("Hook") in the Athabasca Basin area of northern Saskatchewan (Figure 1).

"We're very excited about this new discovery on Hook, on the second hole of our regional exploration program. HK24-010 intersected over 30 metres of continuous radioactivity at approximately 173 metres vertical depth. This new discovery is hosted within a massive alteration corridor similar in scale to what we have observed at our ACKIO zone 6 km to the southwest. We believe the alteration corridor has mobilized uranium from the host rocks and deposited it within a redox front, similar to what we interpret for HK24-010. We intend to follow-up drilling in this area in the coming weeks after completing exploration drilling in a logistically efficient order on other targets with stronger geophysical anomalisms. Hook's regional exploration aim was to discover new zones of uranium mineralization and we're well on our way with this new prospect," commented James Sykes, CEO, President, and Director of Baselode.
