Junior Uranium Miner Planning Multiple Drill Campaigns this Year…

Maybe that’s why institutions are quietly accumulating millions of shares in Skyharbour Resources (OTCQX: SYHBF) (TSXV: SYH)(24)(25)

“We welcome Rio Tinto as a new strategic shareholder and project partner. We have a shared vision for the exploration of the various prospective target areas that remain to be fully tested on the Property using modern exploration methods and techniques. We look forward to working with Rio Tinto to generate a new meaningful discovery in the years to come.”

Jordan Trimble, President, and CEO of Skyharbour Resources17

5 Key Reasons

Why Skyharbour Resources
(OTCQBX: SYHBF) (TSXV: SYH) Could Have a Breakout Year in 2024.

Uranium’s Value is Rising: In the last 60 years uranium has become one of the world’s most important energy minerals. The price of Uranium is rising as demand grows for nuclear energy generation around the globe. In fact, uranium spot prices soared to a 15-year high in December 2023 as dwindling secondary supplies, the Russian war with Ukraine, and other supply uncertainties like the coup in Niger have continued to put upward pressure on the price.(23)(18)

Uranium Miners are Critical to Clean Energy Transition: Worldwide, ESG investors are warming up to nuclear power after the carbon-free technology won EU recognition as sustainable.(4) US$565 billion of investment in nuclear power will be needed by 2050 if the EU is to hit its carbon neutrality targets.(26) Recent COP28 conference saw 22 countries sign a monumental declaration to triple nuclear power generation by 2050.

Mining Giant Rio Tinto and Uranium Developer Denison Mines are Shareholders of Skyharbour, and Orano is a JV Partner at the Project Level: The company announced back in 2022 that it can acquire an initial 51% and up to 100% interest in the Russell Lake uranium project in the Athabasca Basin from mining giant Rio Tinto.(17) This news put Skyharbour in business with the 3rd largest mining company in the world. Furthermore, NYSE listed Denison Mines is a large strategic shareholder of Skyharbour and Denison’s President and CEO is a Director of Skyharbour. Lastly, France’s largest uranium mining and nuclear fuel company Orano is a JV project partner with Skyharbour at the Preston Project.

Home of the Highest Grade Uranium: The Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan, Canada is an ancient sedimentary basin hosting the world’s richest uranium deposits and mines. Historically the basin has produced approximately 20% of the world’s primary uranium supply and is a safe and favorable mining jurisdiction.(6) The Russell Lake uranium project from Rio Tinto is coming with a fully permitted and functioning camp and is located adjacent to Denison’s “Wheeler River Project” which hosts the highest-grade undeveloped uranium deposit in the eastern portion of the Athabasca Basin. In addition to its co-flagship Russell Lake and Moore Projects, Skyharbour holds an extensive portfolio of uranium exploration projects in the Athabasca Basin and is well-positioned to benefit from improving uranium market fundamentals with twenty five projects, ten of which are drill-ready, covering over 1.2 million acres of mineral claims.

Catalyst-Rich Company and Institutional Accumulation: Skyharbour is fully funded for its upcoming large drill campaign consisting of 8,000m including 5,000m at its Russell Lake uranium project and 3,000m at its Moore uranium project. Other partner companies are planning to carry out various additional exploration and drill programs at some of Skyharbour’s other projects. Institutions are piling in and have been accumulating millions of shares of Skyharbour. The Sprott URNM ETF owns around 12,747,870 and Global X ETF is sitting on about 7,578,245 shares as of 01/07/2024.(24)(25)

Skyharbour Resources Quickly Grabs Analyst Attention

The day after Skyharbour announced the Rio Tinto news, Mining Analyst, David A. Talbot, from Red Cloud Securities issued a “Buy” rating on the company with a C$0.85 target price. This price target would indicate a potential move of as much as 89% as suggested by the Red Cloud Securities report from 5/20/2022 shown below. (21)

Additionally, analysts at Fundamental Research Corp. in June 2023 issued a “Buy” rating for Skyharbour Resources, with a price target of C$0.97.

The Changing of Attitudes Across the Globe Could Bring Billions of Dollars into the Uranium Market.(32)

Europe’s ethical investors may soften their attitude toward nuclear power after the carbon-free technology won EU recognition as a sustainable activity.(32)

 

Nuclear will join the EU’s green taxonomy next year, potentially easing investor concerns about whether it should be considered environmentally friendly. The move could in turn open new funding sources for European nuclear operators, as the industry faces up to €550 billion (USD $580 billion) of investment needs through 2050, based on EU forecasts.(32)

The new green status adds to growing momentum for the power source in Europe as technology developments and greater appreciation for nuclear’s ability to consistently supply carbon-free power increasingly outweigh traditional worries about radioactive waste and safety levels.

 

At the recent COP28 conference in Dubai, a major positive development occurred when 22 nations including the USA, Canada, China and several European member states signed a declaration to triple nuclear capacity by 2050.

3 Reasons Why Nuclear is Clean and Sustainable(36)

When you hear the words “clean energy,” what comes to mind?

 

Most people immediately think of solar panels or wind turbines, but how many of you thought of nuclear energy?

 

Nuclear is often left out of the “clean energy” conversation despite it being the second largest source of low-carbon electricity in the world behind hydropower.

 

So, just how clean and sustainable is nuclear?

 

Try these quick facts for starters.

 

  • Nuclear energy protects air quality(36) It generates power through fission, which is the process of splitting uranium atoms to produce energy. The heat released by fission is used to create steam that spins a turbine to generate electricity without the harmful byproducts emitted by fossil fuels.
  • Nuclear energy’s land footprint is small(36) Despite producing massive amounts of carbon-free power, nuclear energy produces more electricity on less land than any other clean-air source.
  • Nuclear energy produces minimal waste(36) Nuclear fuel is extremely dense. It’s about 1 million times greater than that of other traditional energy sources and because of this, the amount of used nuclear fuel is not as big as you might think.(18) All of the used nuclear fuel produced by the U.S. nuclear energy industry over the last 60 years could fit on a football field at a depth of less than 10 yards!(36)

That waste can also be reprocessed and recycled, although the United States does not currently do this.(36)

 

However, some advanced reactors designs being developed could operate on used fuel.(36)

Uranium Miners May Be Poised to Take Market Share Within Energy Sector(27)

Nuclear energy generates 10% of the world’s electricity and more than 50% of zero carbon emissions electricity.(27)

 

Uranium miners are tiny in market capitalization compared to the largest energy
companies, namely oil & gas conglomerates.(27)

Global Demand For Uranium Is Growing, Shortages Possible(37)

The lion’s share of uranium is traded under long-term contracts between uranium producers and utility companies. The rest is traded in the spot market. The primary driver of the demand for uranium is the capacity of nuclear reactors used to generate electricity.(37)

 

Industry experts project that, given the number of new reactors planned and the worldwide growing demand for electricity, the demand for uranium will grow significantly over the next decade.(37)

 

Only freshly-mined uranium may satisfy the growing demand.(37)

 

The current annual global consumption is 190 million pounds, while annual global mine production is 140 million pounds, resulting in a 50-million pound deficit.(37)

 

Inventory drawdowns and other sources of secondary supply currently make up the difference. Industry experts, however, project that the supply of these secondary sources will decrease by 50% over the next decade, while global demand for uranium will increase, widening the supply-demand gap.(37)

 

Only primary sources of uranium—i.e., the supply produced from mines—can make up the coming shortfall, because the stockpiles will be gone.(37)

 

There are 437 operating nuclear power plants in the world, and 61 new plants are currently under construction.(37)

In the next two decades, China, India, Russia, Europe, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia will dramatically expand their use of nuclear energy, causing fierce competition for mined uranium.(37)

According to the World Nuclear Association, 139 new plants are in the planning stage and 326 new plants are in the proposal stage.(37)

 

China will build 50 new reactors by 2030 (500% increase), and India will build 35 (150% increase).(37)

 

China alone will consume the equivalent of one-third of today’s global uranium market.(37)

China and Russia have already begun aggressively buying up huge stakes in uranium mining operations around the world in order to stockpile uranium to meet their rising domestic demand.(37)

Could Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine Drive Up Demand for “Friendly Uranium” As the World Looks to Decarbonize?

Uranium mining in North America could be on the verge of a revival.

 

Think of it as one component of America’s supply chain problems.

 

As the U.S. seeks to decarbonize in response to climate change, the current administration has been confronted with the fact that the technologies needed to build a low-carbon economy in many cases require metals — like nickel, lithium and cobalt — that are in short supply domestically and controlled by adversarial nations, like China and Russia.(34)

 

A similar situation is currently playing out with uranium, which is the key ingredient in making fuel for nuclear reactors.(34)

 

U.S. dependence on foreign sources leaves the nuclear energy sector vulnerable to geopolitical conflict — like Russia’s war against Ukraine.(34)

 

Russia supplies 20 percent of the low-enriched uranium used to power U.S. reactors and is the lead supplier of fuel-ready uranium to the world market.(34)

 

While the U.S. does import a lot of its uranium supply from other nations, its partial reliance on Russian supplies can already be seen with spiking fuel costs.(34)

 

When the current U.S. administration floated sanctions back in 2022 on Russia’s state-owned atomic company, Rosatom State Nuclear Energy Corp., the price of uranium shot to roughly $60 — a high not reached in more than a decade.(34)

 

More recently, these sanctions on Russian uranium imports are becoming reality, and this will further raise the cost of low-enriched uranium for nuclear power plants globally, leaving U.S. utilities vulnerable to more wild fluctuations.(34)

 

Now, North American uranium miners say they see an opportunity to make some money helping the U.S. fight back against Russia.(34)

Just Who is Skyharbour Resources Ltd.?

Skyharbour is a preeminent uranium exploration and early-stage development company with projects in the prolific Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan in Canada – home to the world’s largest and highest grade uranium mining and milling operations.(33)

 

At the moment, it has 25 uranium projects with well over 1.2 million acres strategically located throughout the Basin.(38)

Skyharbour Holds an Extensive Portfolio of Drill Ready Uranium Exploration Projects in “Friendly” Canada.

Russell Lake (Optioned from Rio Tinto) and Moore Uranium Projects

Skyharbour has acquired from Denison Mines, a large strategic shareholder of the Company, a 100% interest in the Moore Uranium Project which is located 15 kilometers east of Denison’s Wheeler River project and 39 kilometers south of Cameco’s McArthur River uranium mine.(38)

 

Moore is an advanced stage uranium exploration property with high-grade uranium mineralization at the Maverick Zone that returned drill results of up to 6.0% U3O8 over 5.9 meters including 20.8% U3O8 over 1.5 meters at a vertical depth of 265 meters.(38)

 

Furthermore, Skyharbour owns a 100% interest in the 44,470 ha South Falcon Point Project located in the eastern perimeter of the Basin, which contains a NI 43-101 inferred resource totaling 7.0 million pounds of U3O8 at 0.03% and 5.3 million pounds of ThO2 at 0.023%. Adjacent to the Moore Uranium Project is Skyharbour’s recently optioned Russell Lake Uranium Project from Rio Tinto, which hosts historical high-grade drill intercepts over a large property area with robust exploration upside potential.(38)

 

Skyharbour has the option to acquire an initial 51% and up to 100% of Rio Tinto’s 73,294 hectare, Russell Lake Uranium Property strategically located in the central core of the Eastern Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan. The Company is actively advancing these two co-flagship projects through exploration and drill programs.(38) The Company is planning an aggressive combined 8,000m drill program in the first half of 2024 consisting of 5,000m at Russell follow by 3,000m at Moore.

Russell Lake Uranium Project, which comprises 26 claims covering 73,294 hectares of prospective exploration ground strategically situated between the Company’s Moore Uranium project (to the east) and Denison Mines’ Wheeler River project (to the west) in the eastern portion of the Athabasca.(17)

 

The Project is a premier, advanced-stage exploration property given its large size, proximity to critical regional infrastructure, and the significant amount of historical exploration carried out on the property, which has identified numerous prospective target areas and several high-grade uranium showings as well as drill hole intercepts. The Property is centrally located between Cameco Corp.’s Key Lake mill to the south and the McArthur River mine to the north.(17)

 

Access to the Property is via Highway 914, which services the McArthur River Mine and runs through the western extent of the Property along with a high-voltage powerline that energizes the existing mining operations in the eastern portion of the Athabasca Basin.(17)

 

Highlights:

 

Skyharbour has an option to acquire an initial 51% and up to 100% of Rio Tinto’s 73,294 ha Russell Lake Uranium Property strategically located in the central core of the Eastern Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan.(17)

 

Both Highway 914 servicing McArthur River and a high-voltage power line connected to the provincial power grid run through the Property’s western claims.(17)

 

Skyharbour, as an operator, can earn an initial 51% interest in the Property by paying CAD $508,200 in cash, issuing 3,584,014 common shares to RTEC, and funding CAD $5,717,250 in exploration on the Project, inclusive of a 10% management fee to Skyharbour, over a period of 3 years.(17)

 

Skyharbour has a second option to earn an additional 19% interest for a total of 70%, and a further possible option to obtain the remaining 30% interest in the Project for an undivided 100% ownership interest.(17)

 

The Property has been the subject of significant historical exploration efforts including over 95,000 meters of drilling in over 220 drill holes. This provides the Company with an excellent dataset to direct subsequent exploration of high-priority areas with the potential for near-term discovery of high-grade uranium mineralization.(17)

 

Previous exploration work has identified numerous highly prospective target areas, some of which host high-grade uranium mineralization in historical drill holes. Furthermore, there are over 35 kilometers of untested conductors on the Property in magnetic lows, which are indicative of pelitic basement rocks conducive to uranium deposition in the Athabasca Basin.(17)

 

The Property has a permitted and functional exploration camp suitable for over forty people and is conveniently located near Highway 914 and within 5 km kilometers of Denison’s Phoenix deposit. The Property’s claims are in good standing for 2-22 years from banked assessment credits.(17)

 

Skyharbour completed an inaugural drilling campaign in 2023 which consisted 9,595m in nineteen holes over three phases at the Project in which significant uranium mineralization was found in numerous holes.

The primary focus of the inaugural program was at the Grayling Zone and the Fox Lake Trail area, where several historical drilling campaigns intersected notable uranium mineralization, which Skyharbour followed up on.

 

Given the success of the inaugural drill program carried out by the Company at Russell Lake, a follow-up program will commence shortly. The fully-funded program will consist of 5,000 m of drilling and is slated to commence in January.

The South Falcon East Project is an advanced-stage uranium exploration project in the southeast Athabasca Basin owned by Skyharbour. The project covers approximately 12,234 hectares and lies 18 kilometers outside the Athabasca Basin, approximately 55 kilometers east of the Key Lake Mine. Drilling to date on the entire Falcon Point Project area totals over 22,000 metres in more than 110 holes and the project contains a shallow NI 43-101 inferred resource totaling 7.0 million pounds of U3O8 at 0.03% and 5.3 million pounds of ThO2 at 0.023%.

 

Skyharbour has entered into an option agreement with Tisdale Clean Energy Corp. which provides Tisdale an earn-in option to acquire an initial 51% interest and up to a 75% interest in the property. Tisdale is planning an extensive preliminary drill program to commence in early 2024 which will consist of approximately 2,000 metres of drilling. The priority will be to confirm and expand the existing mineralization associated with the Fraser Lakes Zone B uranium deposit.

 

Skyharbour also owns 100% of the adjacent Falcon Uranium Project which covers 42,908 hectares covering 11 claims approximately 50 km east of the Key Lake mine. Uranium mineralization discovered to date at Falcon is shallow and is hosted in two geological settings, with the southern half hosting classic Athabasca-style basement mineralization associated with well-developed EM conductors which include EWA and Walker targets. Historical exploration has consisted of airborne and ground geophysics, multi-phased diamond drill campaigns, detailed geochemical sampling and surveys, and ground-based prospecting culminating in an extensive geological database for the project area. The project area is in close proximity to two all-weather northern highways and grid power.

 

Skyharbour recently entered into an option agreement with North Shore Uranium on the Falcon Uranium Project whereby North Shore can earn an initial 80% interest in the claims over a three year period by fulfilling combined cash, share issuance and exploration expenditure commitments. North Shore is planning an initial drill program to commence in early 2024.

 

The Preston Project(47)

The Preston Project is a large land position totaling 49,635 hectares strategically located proximal to NexGen Energy’s (TSX-V: NXE) high-grade Arrow uranium deposit and Fission Uranium’s (TSX: FCU) Patterson Lake South Triple R deposit. In March 2017, Skyharbour and its Preston partner company Clean Commodities signed an option agreement with Orano Canada Inc. (formerly AREVA and France’s largest uranium mining and nuclear fuel cycle company).

 

In March 2021, Orano completed its earn-in of 51%, by completing $4,800,000 in exploration expenditures and making a total of $200,000 in cash payments over three years, thus forming a joint venture with Skyharbour Resources and Dixie Gold both retaining a 24.5% interest. The Preston Uranium Project is a strategic, district-scale property with robust exploration upside potential and Skyharbour is utilizing the prospect generator model to advance this project with strategic partners.(47) A 2024 exploration program is planned and will be carried out through the year.        

 

The East Preston Project(48)

The East Preston Uranium Project is a large land position totaling 20,674 hectares, representing the eastern region of the larger Preston Project strategically located near NexGen Energy Ltd’s high-grade Arrow deposit on its Rook-1 property and Fission Uranium Corp Triple R deposit located within their PLS Project area.(48)

 

In February 2021, Azincourt earned their interest in the project by completing CAD $2.5 million in staged exploration expenditures and making a total of CAD $1 million in cash payments over the previous four years as well as issuing a total of 9.5 million common shares of Azincourt divided evenly between Skyharbour and Dixie Gold. Skyharbour’s current ownership of the East Preston Project is 9.5% with Dixie owning 4.7%.

 

In 2023, Azincourt completed 3,066 meters of drilling in 13 drill holes, with results showing uranium enrichment within the previously identified clay alteration zones along the K, and H- target zones. Planning is underway for a winter 2024 drill program focusing on the alteration zone associated with the K- and H-Zones previously identified in recently completed programs.

 

The Hook Lake Project (48)

The Hook Lake Project (formerly North Falcon Point) consists of 16 contiguous mining claims covering 25,846 hectares, located 60 km east of the Key Lake Uranium Mine in northern Saskatchewan. The Project is host to several prospective areas of uranium mineralization including the Hook Lake / Zone S High-grade surface outcrop with reported grades in grab samples up to 68% U3O8. In December 2020, the Company announced a

 

Definitive Agreement with ASX listed Valor Resources which provides Valor an earn-in option to acquire an 80% working interest in the Hook Lake Uranium Project.

 

Valor Resources completed its maiden drilling program at the Hook Lake Project earlier in 2022. The drilling program comprised eight drill holes for 1,757m, with six holes at the S-Zone prospect and two at the V-Grid prospect. A total of 305 samples were collected from the program and submitted to the lab.

 

Valor also completed an airborne gravity gradiometry survey in the summer of 2022 and following an interpretation of the data, eleven new targets were defined.  The airborne gravity survey has confirmed eleven new targets which provides Valor with excellent potential drill targets at the project.

 

The Mann Lake Project (44)

The 3,473 hectare Mann Lake Uranium Project is strategically located in the eastern Athabasca Basin 25 km southwest of the McArthur River Mine and adjacent to the Mann Lake Joint Venture operated by Cameco (52.5%) with partners Denison Mines (30%) and Orano (formerly AREVA) (17.5%). Denison acquired International Enexco and its 30% interest on this adjacent project after a 2014 winter drill program discovered high-grade, basement-hosted uranium mineralization. In 2014, Skyharbour completed an EM survey on its Mann Lake Project that was successful in confirming the presence of a broad, NE-SW trending corridor of conductive basement rocks. In October 2021, an option agreement was signed with Basin Uranium Corp providing them with an earn-in option to acquire up to a 75% interest in the Mann Lake Uranium Project.(44)

 

In 2022, Basin Uranium completed two phases of drilling totalling 6,279m in nine holes which intersected anomalous uranium mineralization. Basin has plans to carry out additional exploration and drilling in 2024.
