79 Resources Ltd. (CSE: SNR) (“79 Resources” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired the North Preston Uranium Project situated in the southwest region of Saskatchewan’s Athabasca Basin. The Athabasca Basin is a major source of global uranium supply and provides a tier-one uranium exploration environment that hosts some of the world’s highest-grade uranium deposits.
The North Preston Uranium Project, more than 4,100 acres in size, is well-situated among leading uranium companies, including being contiguous and aligned with the East Preston Uranium Project actively under exploration by the Azincourt Energy JV.
“The North Preston Uranium Project is a remarkable uranium energy project for 79 Resources. Situated within the core of the emerging Preston uranium district in Canada’s SW Athabasca Basin, the North Preston Uranium Project represents the rare opportunity to immediately position SNR within the inner circle of leading and growth-focused uranium exploration companies that include Orano Canada, NexGen Energy and Azincourt Energy. Today is a pivotal and exciting day for our shareholders,” stated Steven Feldman, Chief Executive Officer of 79 Resources.
Uranium Exploration Program
79 Resources is also pleased to announce that the Company is in the process of reviewing a uranium exploration program for its newly-acquired North Preston Uranium Project and expects further detail with regards to near-term uranium exploration to be forthcoming. The objective for initial field work, which may include radon sampling, will be to advance uranium drill targets that align with a basement-hosted exploration model known to host significant uranium deposits within the Athabasca Basin.
Subject to a royalty interest, 79 Resources holds a 100% interest in the North Preston Uranium Project, free-and-clear of any earn-in obligations.
The North Preston Uranium Project was acquired by 79 Resources pursuant to a purchase agreement with Calgary-based Kalt Industries Ltd. and was executed at a cash payment equal the license fees paid to the Government of Saskatchewan in early-2020 and certain non-material expenses affiliated with the license acquisition process. A pre-existing two percent royalty on the claims was assumed by the Company.
