Vancouver, British Columbia, October 5, 2023 – Cosa Resources Corp. (CSE: COSA) (OTCQB: COSAF) (FRA: SSKU) (“Cosa” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the expansion of its 100% owned Orion Property in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan (“Orion” or the “Property”). Additionally, the Company announces that it has entered into a market-making agreement with Generation IACP (“GIACP”) pursuant to which GIACP has agreed to provide certain market-making services to the Company in accordance with the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”).
- Orion expanded to 9000 hectares with two new claims totalling 5119 hectares
- Over 10 kilometres of additional prospective magnetic low strike length acquired via low-cost staking
- Orion expansion area covers the interpreted southern extension of the Larocque uranium corridor, host to the Hurricane deposit and Alligator Lake and Larocque Lake uranium zones
Keith Bodnarchuk, President & CEO, commented: “Our technical team continues to deliver in a highly competitive staking environment. Land in the Athabasca Basin is at a premium and adding over 10 kilometres of a prospective trend is a win for our team. Year to date, we have added more than 73,000 hectares of land, and our entire portfolio remains 100% owned.”
Andy Carmichael, VP of Exploration commented: “We are pleased to have more than doubled the prospective magnetic low strike length contained by our 100% owned Orion property. As with the original Orion claim, this ground is highly underexplored and is prospective for uranium exploration.”
Orion is located 29 kilometres west of the Cigar Lake uranium mine and 29 kilometres north of the McArthur River uranium mine (Figure 1). The Property covers the interpreted intersection of the Larocque uranium corridor and a splay off the Cable Bay Shear Zone (Figure 2).
Competitive staking in September added two claims to the Property totaling 5119 hectares and covering an additional 10 kilometres of prospective magnetic low strike length. The newly added strike includes the interpreted southern extension of the Larocque uranium trend, host to the Hurricane uranium deposit and the Larocque Lake and Alligator Lake uranium zones (Figure 2). Staking of the new claims was largely driven by preliminary interpretation of results from Cosa’s July 2023 MobileMT airborne survey over the Ursa and Orion properties.
The single historical drill hole completed on Orion is interpreted to have missed the targeted conductor. Historical drilling along strike to the west of Orion intersected zones of structural disruption in the sandstone with illitic hydrothermal alteration and anomalous uranium geochemistry, including 0.05% U3O8 over 1.0 metres (932.4-933.4 metres) immediately above the unconformity in PAR-03 associated with hydrothermal hematite alteration.
Future work at Orion is expected to include additional MobileMT™ surveying to identify areas for high-quality ground geophysical surveying to generate targets for subsequent diamond drilling. The Company aims to share results of the recently received 3-D inversion of the MobileMT™ survey over Ursa and Orion properties in the coming weeks.
