Standard Uranium Gears Up for Inaugural Drill Program at Canary Project

Standard Uranium is making significant strides in advancing its exploration efforts at the Canary Project, located in the prolific Athabasca Basin region. In a recent interview with Proactive, Standard Uranium CEO Jon Bey provided insights into the company’s upcoming plans for the project.

Bey revealed that Standard Uranium has engaged drill and helicopter contractors in preparation for the inaugural Spring 2024 drill program, scheduled to commence in early May. The program will involve helicopter-supported diamond drilling, targeting high-priority unconformity-related uranium targets identified through geophysical work conducted by the company in 2022. These targets are situated approximately 200-300 meters below the surface, representing ideal unconformity target zones.

Highlighting the underexplored nature of the northeast portion of the eastern Athabasca Basin, Bey emphasized that the Canary project contains two main conductive corridors, yet only has three historical drill holes, representing a drilling density of 0.04 drill holes per square kilometer. This underscores the significant exploration potential of the area.

The Canary Project is currently under a three-year earn-in option agreement with Mamba Exploration. As part of the agreement, Mamba aims to earn a 75% interest in the project by funding $6 million in exploration expenditures over three years. The upcoming drill program represents a crucial step in advancing the project and unlocking its potential.

Standard Uranium’s strategic focus on the Canary Project aligns with the company’s commitment to exploring and developing high-quality uranium assets in the Athabasca Basin, a region renowned for its world-class uranium deposits. By leveraging its expertise and partnerships, Standard Uranium is well-positioned to make significant strides in the exploration and potential development of this promising project. The company’s upcoming drill program will provide valuable insights into the project’s mineral potential and guide future exploration efforts.
