Blue Sky expands Amarillo Grande uranium project in Argentina

Published 23 November 2016

Blue Sky Uranium has staked ten new exploration properties (cateos) totaling 100,000ha in the core of the 140km mineralized trend of the Amarillo Grande Uranium project in Rio Negro province, Argentina.

With the addition of these new properties, Blue Sky controls all of the most prospective targets in this new uranium district, with total land holdings of over 280,000 hectares.

"We are thrilled to be able to make such a significant expansion to our already highly prospective land holdings at the Amarillo Grande Project. We are moving quickly to explore all the high-priority areas and delineate our drill targets for 2017," stated Blue Sky President and CEO Nikolaos Cacos.

Fifteen Kilometre Ground Geophysical Survey Launched

Blue Sky has completed an initial ground geophysical survey at the Anit property of the Amarillo Grande Project using Electrical Tomography (ET). Results from the survey (see Figure 1 below) indicate that ET is an excellent indirect tool to define near-surface ancient river channels ("paleochannels") & high-conductivity horizons that potentially host uranium mineralization. Based on these results, the Company is launching a fifteen kilometre ET survey over the main targets within the Amarillo Grande project. This program will help to refine targets for a 10,000 metre RC drilling program, scheduled to commence at the beginning of 2017.
