CAT STRATEGIC CLOSES AMALGAMATION AGREEMENT AND ACQUIRES DISTRICT-SCALE URANIUM ASSET IN CANADA’S WESTERN ATHABASCA BASIN, 50+KM CLAIM BORDER WITH NEIGHBOURING AZINCOURT ENERGY
Vancouver, BC March 17, 2021 CAT Strategic Metals Corporation (CSE: CAT) (“CAT” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has closed the binding letter agreement with arm’s- length parties to acquire a privately-held corporation that owns a 100% undivided interest in the South Preston Uranium Property located in Saskatchewan, Canada.
The South Preston Uranium Property
The South Preston Uranium Property is located in the southwest area of Canada’s Athabasca Basin, which is known to host some of the world’s highest-grade uranium deposits. Recent discoveries in the region include the Arrow uranium deposit discovered by NexGen Energy Ltd. and the Triple R (PLS) uranium deposit being advanced by Fission Uranium Corp.
The South Preston Uranium Property is district-scale uranium exploration project encompassing approx. 20,679 ha (~51,077 acres) across numerous mineral dispositions. Together with the addition of the recently acquired East Expansion and North Expansion claims, the total project size has increased to 29,395 ha (70,136 acres). Among other attributes, the property is viewed as prospectively hosting the extension of a priority uranium exploration corridor extending from NexGen Energy Ltd.’s Rook-1 Project through Azincourt Energy Corp.’s adjacent East Preston Uranium Project and onto CAT’s new South Preston Uranium Property.
As shown in Figure 1 (see above), the South Preston Uranium Project shares more than 50km of contiguous claim border with Azincourt Energy Corp. and more than 18.5km of continuous project boundary with Orano, a leading global uranium producer.
The Company’s exploration strategy at its South Preston Uranium Property is currently focused on rapidly defining priority drill targets for testing later this year.
