Cosa Resources Corp. (TSXV: COSA) (OTCQB: COSAF) (FSE: SSKU) (‘Cosa’ or the ‘Company’) is pleased to announce it has entered into a property purchase agreement (the ‘Purchase Agreement’) with CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (the ‘Vendor’) dated January 12, 2024, for the acquisition (the ‘Acquisition’) of the Titan Uranium Project in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan (‘Titan’ or the ‘Property’).
Eight mineral dispositions totalling 9,333 hectares to be acquired, doubling the Orion Project to 18,332 hectares
The expanded Orion Project will capture over 22 km of the Larocque Trend, which hosts the Hurricane Deposit and several other significant uranium showings
Keith Bodnarchuk, President and CEO of Cosa, commented: ‘The acquisition of Titan and expansion of our 100% owned Orion Project demonstrates our commitment to acquiring underexplored hectares through staking and cost-effective transactions. Recent MobileMT survey results at Ursa and Orion significantly upgraded the prospectivity of the area, making the addition of Titan a focus for the Cosa team. Our uranium portfolio is nearing 200,000 hectares in the Athabasca Basin region, and we will continue to seek opportunities to advance and diversify our portfolio of highly prospective uranium projects. We would like to thank the team at CanAlaska for their cooperation in completing the Titan agreement expeditiously and in the best interest of both companies.’
Andy Carmichael, VP of Exploration of Cosa, commented: ‘Incorporating Titan into Orion increases Cosa’s footprint in an area that has seen little historical exploration despite containing the intersection of two mineralized trends. Significantly expanding the amount of the fertile Larocque Lake trend captured by the Project, Titan will also double the contained extension of the east-west magnetic trend that hosts the Cigar Lake uranium mine and Tucker Lake Uranium Zone. We’re encouraged by the presence of uranium occurrences east and west of Orion along this trend, and with the strong conductive anomaly identified by our 2023 MobileMT survey, we believe Orion contains several compelling target areas warranting substantial exploration.’
The Combined Titan and Orion Projects
Following consolidation of Titan and Orion, the combined project (the ‘Project’) will comprise 11 claims totaling 18,332 hectares and lie within 31 kilometres of the Cigar Lake Uranium Mine. The Project will cover 22 kilometres of the Larocque Lake trend which hosts the Hurricane uranium deposit, the Larocque Lake uranium zone, and the Alligator Lake uranium zone (Figure 2). Included within the contained section of the Larocque Lake trend is its intersection with the east-west oriented Cigar Lake trend, which hosts the Cigar Lake Mine and the Tucker Lake uranium zone. Results at Tucker Lake include 5.7% U3O8 over 4.5 metres in drill hole CLC5-11 (639.0 – 643.5 metres).
In western Orion, three-dimensional inversion results from Cosa’s 2023 MobileMT survey indicate a prominent, kilometre-scale zone of conductivity in the sandstone above basement-hosted electromagnetic conductors, a geophysical signature consistent with the unconformity-related uranium deposits in the Athabasca Basin.
Only two drill holes are known to have been completed within the expanded Project. The depth to the unconformity is estimated to be between 700 and 900 metres.
Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, Cosa has agreed to acquire a 100% unencumbered ownership of all eight mineral claims comprising Titan from the Vendor in exchange for $10,000 in cash and the issuance of 300,000 common shares of the Company (the ‘Consideration Shares’). The Consideration Shares will be subject to a four-month hold period pursuant to applicable Canadian securities laws, after which 25% of the Consideration Shares will become free trading. In addition, the Vendor has agreed to voluntary resale restrictions whereby an additional 25% of the Consideration Shares will become free trading every three months thereafter. The Acquisition is subject to standard closing conditions, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the ‘TSXV’).
