CanAlaska Acquires Cluff Lake Uranium Project
CanAlaska will purchase 100% of the project from Hawk for 1,250,000 Company shares and a cash payment of
The Cluff Lake claims will be added to those of the Company’s existing Carswell project (http://www.canalaska.com/i/maps/carswell1.jpg). These claims are situated immediately west of the past-producing uranium mine and processing facilities at Cluff Lake, which had produced in excess of 62 million lbs U(3)O(8) over 22 years prior to its closure in 2000. They are also located 11 km NW of the Shea Creek Project, an advanced-stage uranium exploration project presently being developed by UEX/AREVA in the same area. Recent announcements by UEX/AREVA have detailed the high-grade uranium mineralization being discovered at the Shea Creek project, and the extensive work programs planned for the project in the coming year. Statements by UEX/AREVA have previously described a world-class uranium mineralizing system associated with the Saskatoon Lake graphitic basement conductor, and a large, long-lived mining operation for the project, with underground development in the preliminary stages.
Over the past year, all of the Project area has been flown using VTEM airborne geophysics technology. The VTEM airborne surveys allow detailed evaluation of magnetic and conductive features, and the associated structural dislocation caused by faulting, to depths greater than was possible during the previous exploration and development of the Cluff Lake mine. These current surveys have provided to CanAlaska evidence of structural breaks and possible mineralization zones.
With the consolidation of the Project mineral claims, CanAlaska will now carry out the next stages of exploration at the Carswell project with the aim of a new discovery, and the potential of forming joint venture partnerships with strategic partners. Dr.
