Drilling High-Grade U3O8 in a Uranium Bull Market
Skyharbour Resources (TSX-V: SYH)(OTC: SYHBF) – currently trading at approximately C$0.30 per share – has announced yet another significant drill intercept from its flagship Moore Uranium Project — located in the prolific Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada.
The highlight intercept – which comes from the Maverick East Zone – returned 0.28% U3O8 over 17.9 metres, including 1.09% U3O8 over 2.5 metres, along with significant copper mineralization.
This follows December’s highlight intercept of 0.72% U3O8 over 17.5 metres, including 1% U3O8 over 10 metres.
These back-to-back results – which further confirm the continuity of the high-grade East Maverick Zone – are providing the Skyharbour team with a solid momentum boost going into 2021 where drill programs are currently being developed for the Maverick corridor as well as new targets identified through geophysics.
Skyharbour CEO, Jordan Trimble – whom you’ll be hearing more from in a moment – added via press release:
“We are very pleased with the results from this most recent drill program at our flagship Moore project as we continue to discover new high-grade uranium mineralization at the Maverick corridor in relatively wide intercepts of continuous mineralization. We will be commencing a winter drill program to follow up on these results and test more extensively the highly prospective potential feeder zones in the basement rock at the Maverick corridor. Skyharbour is very well positioned to benefit from the accelerating uranium market recovery with strong discovery potential and upcoming news flow from its continued drilling at Moore. Additional news flow will be provided by the work of partner companies Valor Resources, Orano Canada and Azincourt Energy each earning in at our North Falcon Point, Preston and East Preston projects, respectively.”
With substantial portions of the 4.5 km-long Maverick corridor yet to be systematically drill-tested, the Skyharbour team sees robust discovery potential both along strike and at-depth in the underexplored basement rocks.
This focus-shift to basement-hosted mineralization is important as Skyharbour – as well as other companies operating in the Athabasca – are seeing very real potential for high-grade “feeder zones” situated beneath the sandstone cover.
Thus far, the market has been reacting favorably with SHY shares doubling from C$0.15 to C$0.30 over just the last ten or so weeks.

Mike Fagan has mining in his blood. As a teenager he staked countless gold and silver properties in Nevada alongside his dad, Brian Fagan, who created the Prospect Generator model that’s still widely used today in the resource space. One of those staking projects was put into production by a major Canadian mining company — a truly rare and profitable experience. That background uniquely qualifies him as a mining stock speculator. One of the most well-known names in the business, Mike is now putting that experience to use for the benefit of Resource Stock Digest and Hard Asset Digest readers.
