Exploration activities have begun on Standard Uranium’s (STND) Sun Dog Project in Saskatchewan.

Ice road access is currently being constructed, with the Standard Uranium team and drill crews scheduled to mobilize in three weeks. Sun Dog is located at the northwestern edge of the Athabasca Basin.

2023 Sun Dog drill program summary:

  • Drilling will commence in early February
  • Approximately 3,000 metres in eight diamond drill holes planned to follow up on known high-grade uranium mineralization and winter 2022 drill holes
  • Follow-up drilling by Standard Uranium at the Skye, Haven, Johnston-Bay, and Java target areas
  • Exploring several kilometres of graphitic conductors coincident with cross-cutting faults and historical surface and drillhole intersections of high-grade uranium mineralization
  • Testing down-dip extensions of structures hosting mineralization at surface with the aim of discovering high-grade basement “roots” of the mineralizing systems underlying the Athabasca sandstones

The Sun Dog Project boasts all the favourable characteristics to host a high-grade, Athabasca-style unconformity-related uranium deposit.

The company aims to help breathe new life into the Uranium City area through exploration for high-grade basement and sandstone-hosted uranium.

Strongly elevated pathfinder elements such as boron and moderately anomalous uranium (partial digestion) indicate the possible proximity to mineralization at depth and encourage continued exploration of the project in 2023. The Haven and Johnston-Bay target areas are priority follow-ups for the upcoming program based on dravite alteration and significant boron, structure, and anomalous uranium and pathfinder elements.

During the planned two-drill program for 2023, the Skye target area to the East of Johnston Island will also be tested for the first time.

Standard Uranium is a uranium exploration company with a focus on the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan. Standard Uranium’s Sun Dog project consists of 6 mineral claims over 17,309 hectares. The Sun Dog project is highly prospective for basement and unconformity-hosted uranium deposits.

Standard Uranium Ltd. (STND) opened trading at C$0.095.
