Mr. Nikolaos Cacos reports


Blue Sky Uranium Corp. has filed a National Instrument 43-101 technical report supporting disclosure of the first independent preliminary economic assessment for the Ivana deposit at the company’s 100-per-cent-owned Amarillo Grande uranium-vanadium project in Rio Negro province, Argentina, as reported on Feb. 27, 2019. The PEA concludes that the current mineral resources support 13 years of uranium and vanadium production from a surficial mining operation, with robust economics after modest capital outlay.

The report, titled “Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Ivana Uranium-Vanadium Deposit, Amarillo Grande Project,” with an effective date of Feb. 27, 2019, is available under the company’s profile on SEDAR and will be posted to the company’s website.

About the Amarillo Grande project

The company’s 100-per-cent-owned Amarillo Grande uranium-vanadium project in Rio Negro province, Argentina, is a new uranium district controlled by Blue Sky. The Ivana deposit is the cornerstone of the project and the first part of the district for which both a mineral resource estimate and a preliminary economic assessment have been completed. Mineralization at the Ivana deposit has characteristics of sandstone-type and surficial-type uranium-vanadium deposits. The sandstone-type mineralization is related to a braided fluvial system and indicates the potential for a district-size system. In the surficial-type deposits, mineralization coats loosely consolidated pebbles, and is amenable to leaching and simple upgrading. The PEA demonstrates robust economics for a surficial mining operation of the Ivana deposit, with 13 years of uranium and vanadium production.

The project includes several other target areas over a regional trend, at or near surface. The area is flat-lying, semi-arid and accessible year-round, with nearby rail, power and port access. The company’s strategy includes delineating resources at multiple areas for which a central processing facility could consolidate production.
