Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Announces Plans for Drilling at the Loranger Uranium-Bearing Property, Saskatchewan, Canada

02 February 2024

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - February 2, 2024) - Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corp. (CSE: API) (OTCQX: APAAF) (FSE: A0I0) (MUN: A0I0) (BER: A0I0) (the "Company" or "Appia") is pleased to announce its plans for drilling at the 100%-owned uranium-bearing Loranger property in northern Saskatchewan in conjunction with the signing of a strategic collaboration agreement with the Ya'thi Néné Lands and Resources Office ("YNLR"). This diamond drilling program emphasizes Appia's excitement to capitalize on the rising uranium market in collaboration with the YNLR and local Wollaston residents.

The Loranger diamond drilling program is pending permitting and is slated to commence between late February and early April, and represents a pivotal step in Appia's multi-year exploration efforts to develop its five (5) uranium properties. In partnership with the YNLR and the local Wollaston community, the program will follow up by targeting some of the approximately twenty (20) favourable electromagnetic and uranium-bearing geophysical anomalies (Figure 1) of the property within the eastern Wollaston Domain, in particular the Tabbernor Fault minerals system.

Situated adjacent to the renowned, uranium-rich Athabasca Basin, Appia believes the Loranger Property holds strong potential for valuable uranium deposits.

Appia's Loranger winter diamond drilling program is anticipated to include 1,000 to 1,200 metres across 8 to 10 drill holes, aiming to uncover new uranium discoveries to follow-up on what was drilled in 2017 and 2019. This program's success is expected to contribute significantly to the understanding of the property's uranium mineralization and the implications for further discoveries within its complex geological terrain.

The agreement between Appia and the YNLR facilitates a mutual working relationship during the Loranger diamond drilling program, allowing for respectful and timely working relationships between both parties, and a push toward the project's success. This cooperative approach ensures that the exploration activities benefit both the Company and the region's communities.

"After many constructive negotiations, we are very excited to return to northern Saskatchewan this winter season to explore the economic potential of our Loranger property, just as the uranium markets have seen a surge over the past 12 months," stated Stephen Burega, President.
