Strong Intercepts Confirm Significant Production Potential at Gould’s Dam

Latest results support Boss’ strategy to significantly increase Honeymoon’s annual production capacity and mine life

Boss Energy Limited (ASX: BOE; OTCQX: BQSSF) is pleased to announce high-grade drill results on theGould’s Dam satellite deposit.


Highlights

  • Gould’s Dam is located ~80km northwest of the Honeymoon Mine and currently contains a JORC-compliant resource of 25Mlbs of indicated and inferred U308
  • The results highlight the potential for Gould’s Dam to help lift Honeymoon’s production rate from the current nameplate capacity of 2.45M lbs a year to the Export Permit limit of 3.3M lbs a year and/or extend the mine’s useful life
  • The latest drilling is targeting three key areas within the inferred resource envelope at Gould’s Dam – Sunrise, Billeroo and Beulah; The program will assist with wellfield planning and other pre-development work
  • Infill and step-out drilling at Sunrise and Billeroo targets is almost complete. A total of 96 mud rotary holes have been drilled to date for 12,911m, with uranium mineralisation highlights including (PFN results, ppm pU3O8):
    • 4.00m @ 2,925ppm pU3O8GT 11,700 (WRM0151 from 122.75m)
    • 4.25m @ 2,230ppm pU3O8GT 9,478(WRM0109 from 120.75m)
    • 3.25m @ 1,406ppm pU3O8GT 4,570 (WRM0128 from 123.75m)
    • 5.25m @ 800ppm pU3O8GT 4,200 (WRM0099 from 117.00m)
    • 2.25m @ 1,717ppm pU3O8GT 3,863 (WRM0159 from 121.75m)
    • 1.25m @ 2,877ppm pU3O8GT 3,596 (WRM0114 from 124.50m)
    • 1.75m @ 1,990ppm pU3O8GT 3,483 (WRM0142 from 120.25m)
    • 3.75m @ 773ppm pU3O8GT 2,899 (WRM0130 from 123.75m)
    • 1.50m @ 1,855ppm pU3O8GT 2,783 (WRM0121 from 120.25m)
    • 4.50m @ 545ppm pU3O8GT 2,453 (WRM0140 from 103.25m)
    • 4.75m @ 506ppm pU3O8GT 2,404 (WRM0157 from 122.50m)
    • 4.75m @ 484ppm pU3O8GT 2,299 (WRM0143 from 123.00m)
      • plus 1.75m @ 1,294ppm pU3O8GT 2,265(WRM0143 from 128.50m)
    • 3.00m @ 756ppm pU3O8GT 2,268 (WRM0084 from 118.50m)
  • Exploration will now focus on the Beulah satellite deposit where 40 holes are planned to better define the mineralisation and geological characteristics of this region
  • Ongoing detailed geological and mineralisation modelling will support further development work and preparation for an ISR Mining Lease proposal at Gould’s Dam

These results support the Company’s strategy to increase the nameplate production rate and mine life at its 100 per cent-owned Honeymoon Uranium Mine in South Australia.

In light of these strong results, work has commenced on accelerating the development of Gould’s Dam, which is an important satellite project to the nearby Honeymoon Mine.

The current delineation program provides important data which will be used in wellfield planning and other advanced pre-development activity.

It will also enable Boss to complete detailed geological and mineralisation models which will support the ongoing development work and preparation for an ISR Mining Lease proposal for Gould’s Dam.

This will lead into the next phase of mine plan development, including pump testing of the mineralised aquifer within the Gould’s Dam Indicated resource (utilising monitoring wells installed during the 2023 drilling campaign) and core sample test work. This will provide important baseline hydrogeological and metallurgical characteristics of the mineralised aquifers.

Resource Infill Drilling Program

Three key areas within the current Inferred resource envelope at Gould’s Dam were targeted as part of this infill drilling program – namely the Sunrise, Billeroo and Beulah targets (Figure 2). Holes were logged with the Boss Energy in-house PFN tools for uranium grade characterisation, and Borehole Magnetic Resonance (BMR) tools for lithological determination.

The word uranium with a green arrow pointing up.

Uranium Stocks Surge as Kazakhstan Raises Mineral Extraction Tax

Kazakhstan's announcement of a significant increase in the Mineral Extraction Tax (MET) for uranium sent uranium stocks trending higher on July 10 as concerns of a potential supply disruption grew due to Kazakhstan's position as the world’s largest uranium-producing country.

The new tax rate changes will come in two waves. The first, effective January 1, 2025, will impose an initial hike from the current 6 percent to 9 percent.

Starting in 2026, they will take on a more complex and differentiated rate structure, structured to vary based on production volumes and the price of natural uranium concentrate (U3O8).

For production volumes up to 500 metric tons, the rate will be 4 percent, increasing incrementally to a maximum of 18 percent for volumes exceeding 4,000 metric tons.

Wyoming pinned with a red tack on a map.

Indigo Acquires Hot Uranium Property in Wyoming

Indigo Exploration (TSXV:IXI) has announced the acquisition of a 100 percent interest in the Hot property, a uranium project located in the Shirley Basin of Wyoming, US.

“Gaining 100 percent interest in a project of this calibre, located in a key uranium district next to past production and some of the preeminent US-focused uranium producers and developers, and with extensive historical drill results, is an exciting new development for the Company,” Indigo’s President and CEO Paul Cowley commented in the company's press release.

The Hot property covers 71 unpatented mineral claims over a 5.75 square kilometer area and has been the site of extensive historical exploration since the 1960s.

Wyoming is historically the largest uranium-producing state in the US and has the greatest uranium ore reserves. The Shirley Basin produced over 51 million pounds of U3O8 from 1960 to 1992 at an average grade of 0.22 percent U3O8. However, depressed uranium prices in the late 1900s led to many mines in the region shuttering. The resurgence in uranium prices in recent years has brought interest back to the region as companies look to restart operations, develop uranium deposits or make new discoveries.

Global Uranium Mining Market Expected to Reach $11.38 Billion By 2030 as Dependency on Nuclear Power Increases

FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary - In line with the rise of nuclear energy since the 1950's, uranium has become a pivotal commodity. This is especially true for countries that are highly dependent on nuclear energy to fulfill their domestic energy needs. According to a report from Statista, that the leading consumers of uranium worldwide are the countries with the highest share of nuclear energy: the United States, China, and France. The U.S. used nearly 18,300 metric tons of uranium in 2020. That was more than twice as much as France, which ranked third. Although there are global tendencies towards alternative energies, the worldwide nuclear energy consumption has remained consistent over the past decade. This suggests that uranium will likely continue to be an important commodity for decades to come. A report from GlobalData added that Uranium production is expected to grow marginally at a CAGR of more than 4% from 2024 to 2030 and that the countries holding significant uranium reserves are Australia, Kazakhstan, Canada, Russia, and Namibia among others. In 2023, Australia had the largest share followed by Kazakhstan. In terms of uranium production, Kazakhstan led the market followed by Canada. Active Mining Companies in the news includes: Indigo Exploration Inc. (OTCQB: IXIXF) (TSX-V: IXI), Ur-Energy Inc. (NYSE American: URG) (TSX: URE), Cameco Corporation (NYSE: CCJ) (TSX: CCO), Denison Mines Corp. (NYSE American: DNN), Uranium Energy Corp (NYSE American: UEC).
