Eagle Plains Acquires Additional Claims to Uranium Portfolio, Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan |

Cranbrook, B.C., March 17th, 2021: Eagle Plains Resources (TSX-V:EPL) has completed staking activity adding 989 ha to the 2410 ha Lazy Edward Bay Project located about 60 kilometres west of the Key Lake Mill and historic mine. The claims are owned 100% by EPL and have no underlying encumbrances.

Lazy Edward Bay consists of four claims immediately south of the southern margin of the Athabasca Sandstone and east of the Cable Bay Shear Zone, a crustal-scale, regional geological boundary. The project covers several shallow uranium exploration targets including three priority geophysical anomaly targets identified by a 2010 high sensitivity airborne magnetic gradiometer survey carried out by JNR Resources. The property has never been drilled.

16 kilometers west of Lazy Edward Bay, Eagle Plains controls the 4066 ha Cable Bay Project. Also located along the Athabasca Basin margin, the Cable Bay tenures cover EM geophysical conductors and two high priority magnetic gradiometer survey picks from the 2010 JNR survey. The geophysical anomalies are located within and adjacent to the Cable Bay Shear Zone and the property is thought to be prospective for shallow basement-hosted uranium mineralization.
