Stallion Uranium begins 3,300 m drill program at Coffer

2024-03-06 09:40 ET - News Release

Mr. Drew Zimmerman reports


Stallion Uranium Corp. has begun drilling on its high-priority Appaloosa target as part the company's maiden drill program on its 100-per-cent-owned Coffer project in the prolific southwestern Athabasca basin in Saskatchewan, Canada.


  • The objective of the drill program is the discovery of uranium mineralization associated with conductive electromagnetic (EM) anomalies.
  • Drill holes are targeting multiple stacked geophysical anomalies, including conductive EM anomalies, gravity low anomalies and magnetic low anomalies.
  • Approximately 3,300 metres are planned in three drill holes.
  • Stallion holds a 100-per-cent ownership of the project.

"Drilling marks a key milestone for Stallion as we move into more advanced exploration with potential to make a uranium discovery. We have been able to progress the Appaloosa target from a regional survey to an advanced drill target that hosts several known features associated with uranium mineralization," stated Drew Zimmerman, chief executive officer. "Our systematic approach over such a large land package gives our team high confidence in drill testing the Appaloosa target."

Drill program

The diamond drill program is the maiden drill program for Stallion Uranium. Drilling on the first hole is currently under way and will be the first drilling undertaken on Stallion's 100-per-cent-owned Coffer project. The company has contracted CYR Drilling, a company with extensive drilling experience with a history of successful drill programs in the southwestern Athabasca basin. CYR Drilling will utilize one drill to complete a 3,300-metre program on the Appaloosa target. The target area hosts an approximately six-kilometre-long EM conductor located on the contact between the Beaverlodge and Taltson geological domains. The contact between two domains is an optimal location for uranium-bearing fluid to concentrate. The drill targets are along the identified EM conductor, and will focus on coincident gravity and magnetic lows associated with alteration which have the potential to host uranium mineralization. The results from the recent ground EM survey are being plate modelled, which will be integrated into the final drill targeting models.

Stallion will be announcing any anomalous scintillometer results from the program as a preliminary indication of the presence of radioactive materials if they are encountered. Final assay results will be released when available and are expected in the summer of 2024, after lithogeochemical analysis is completed.

Darren Slugoski, vice-president of exploration, Canada, commented: "We are thrilled to announce that drill coring has begun on Coffer project. This drilling program is the result from our successful exploration in 2023. We will continue to update market and shareholders with the news as we receive the results."

Appaloosa target

The Appaloosa target is located at the north end of the 100-per-cent-owned Coffer project and was first identified from the regional VTEM (versatile time domain electromagnetics) survey conducted in early 2023. The survey data, when compiled and modelled with all available historical data, showed the key characteristics for potential uranium mineralization. To best refine drill targets, Stallion utilized the latest technology to complete an advanced ground TDEM (time domain electromagnetic) survey over the target area. Further bolstering confidence in the target, the Shea Creek deposit (Orano/UEC) of over 93 million pounds (Mlb) is only 13 kilometres west of the target area, highlighting the uranium endowment in the area. The company is currently completing the plate modelling for exact drill targets while the temporary work camp and trails will be constructed. This three-hole, 3,300-metre drill program at Appaloosa marks the company's first drilling campaign in its efforts to discover the next significant uranium deposit in the Athabasca basin.

The Coffer project is located 224 km north of the community of La Loche and is accessible via Highway 955. The accommodations will be located 12 km away from the drill site and will be accessible by drill trails. The company has secured all necessary permits and approvals for the program.
