Exploring Wyoming’s Vast Uranium Potential as Prices Continue to Surge

Strathmore Plus Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: SUU)(OTC: SUUFF) — currently trading around C$0.75 per share in a rising uranium market — has released results from an additional 16 holes at its 1,075-acre Agate uranium project in the Shirley Basin Uranium District of central Wyoming. 

The holes were drilled to the north, west, and east of discovery hole AG-10-23 (16 feet of 0.081% eU3O8) and have successfully extended mineralization in each direction. 

The Agate property is currently permitted for the drilling of 100 holes for 15,000 feet in Phase-1. Previous drilling by Kerr McGee delineated several areas of potential mineralization that the Strathmore Plus team will continue to follow up on in the ongoing Phase-1 program.

The Agate property is currently permitted for the drilling of 100 holes for 15,000 feet in Phase-1.

Historically, 55 million pounds of uranium were mined in Shirley Basin, including from open-pit, underground, and the first commercial in-situ recovery (ISR) operation in the United States during the 1960s. 

The Strathmore Plus team believes the Agate property’s near-surface mineralization (~25’ to ~150’ depth) may be amenable to in-situ recovery, which is the preferred method for extracting uranium ore in North America. 

Additionally, Strathmore Plus is advancing two other permitted uranium projects in Wyoming:

  • Night Owl Uranium Project: Previous uranium producer (93 tons at a grade of 0.24% U3O8) in Wyoming’s Shirley Basin, which was closed due to low uranium prices at the time, not for lack of resource. The plan is to initiate a program of surface exploration and shallow drilling to substantiate the team’s theory as to the source of the uranium mineralization and the potential for future mining. Project is permitted for a 30-hole drill program totaling 3,000 feet with targets acquired through recently completed airborne radiometric and magnetic surveys.   
  • Beaver Rim Uranium Project: Located in central Wyoming adjacent to and south of Cameco’s Gas Hills Uranium Project. Historical and recent reports suggest 50-100 million pounds of uranium resources remain in the Gas Hills with significant discovery potential in the less explored areas to the south in the Beaver Rim area. Project is permitted for in-situ recovery.  

With a highly experienced uranium mining team at the helm, the timing of Strathmore’s multi-project exploration is spot on with uranium now surging to decade-plus highs above US$65/lb. And as far as mining address goes, it really doesn’t get any better or safer for uranium exploration and development than Wyoming, USA.
