CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. [CVV-TSXV; CVVUF-OTCQB; DH7-FSE] signed a letter of intent for Terra Uranium Pty. Ltd., an Australian private limited corporation, to earn up to an 80% interest in CanAlaska’s 100%-owned Waterbury East and McTavish projects and up to a 20% interest in CanAlaska’s 100%-owned Waterbury South project. These projects total 5,010 hectares in the Eastern Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan.

Terra may earn up to an 80% interest in each of the Waterbury East and McTavish projects by paying CanAlaska A$100,000 cash and issuing 12% worth of common shares at listing on the Australian Securities Exchange by December 31, 2021.

Cumulatively, Terra may earn an additional 20% interest in the projects by paying CanAlaska a further A$400,000 and incuring A$5,000,000 in exploration expenditures within 18 months of ASX approval date. Terra may earn an additional 20% interest by delivering and filing a JORC-compliant resource of at least 30,000,000 pounds U3O8 on any of the Waterbury East or McTavish claims, and granting CanAlaska a 2.25% net smelter returns (NSR) royalty within 36 months of ASX listing date. CanAlaska will be operator of the projects through the 60% option threshold and charge a 20% operator fee to Terra.

After completion of either of the 40% option or 60% option stages of the agreement, and if Terra elects to not enter the final stage, a joint venture will be formed and the parties will co-contribute on a pro-rata basis or dilute on a pre-defined formula. If either party dilutes to a 10% interest, the diluting party will automatically forfeit its interest in the respective project and will be granted a 2.0% NSR royalty on the respective property. An area of mutual interest will be established that extends 2 km from the claim boundaries.
