Standard Uranium (TSX.V: STND) is a Canadian uranium exploration company focused on its Davidson River flagship project in the Southwest Athabasca Uranium District. Standard Uranium has the team and land package in place to make the next major uranium discovery in the Southwest Athabasca Basin region of Saskatchewan, Canada and will use best practices and experiences gained from the team’s previous discoveries in this region.
Standard Uranium Ltd. (TSX-V:STND) is a uranium exploration company aiming to leverage its geological experience to make additional discoveries in Saskatchewan’s renowned Athabasca Basin. The company is currently focused on the exploration of the Davidson River uranium project, which is located in the southwest portion of the Basin. In March 2020 Standard Uranium filed a NI-43 101 compliant technical report on the Davison River project, outlining the potential for a two-phase exploration program to expand the company’s understanding of the property.
Standard Uranium believes it has assembled the team and land package necessary to make the next major uranium discovery in the Athabasca Basin. The company intends to leverage its experience in the area to advance potential future discoveries. Standard Uranium believes the Clearwater Domain Mirror Theory suggests the exploration corridors on the west of the Clearwater Domain could have similar uranium deposits as those on the east.
In July 2020 Standard Uranium announced it had expanded its land holdings in the Athabasca Basin by acquiring the Ascent and Canary projects through staking. The two projects, totaling 11,040 hectares, are both located in the eastern Athabasca Basin. Shortly after, Standard Uranium added three new mineral claims that are adjacent to the company’s existing holdings at the Gunnar Project located in the Beaverlodge Uranium District. The 15,770-hectare Gunnar Project contains unconformity and basement-hosted uranium targets, including historically identified uranium mineralization in the Athabasca sandstone..
In an effort to strengthen its exploration team, Standard Uranium recently announced the addition of Galen McNamara and Sean Hillacre to its technical team. Mr. Sean Hillacre has been named the company’s Project Manager for the upcoming Davidson Drill Program, while Mr. Galen McNamara has been named Technical Advisor. Hillacre has experience in the region after working with NexGen Energy as an exploration geologist as part of the technical team that developed the Arrow Deposit. McNamara also brings considerable exploration experience to the team after managing all field-based drilling and exploration activities for NexGen. McNamara
earned the 2018 PDAC Bill Dennis “Prospector of the Year” Award and 2016 Mines and Money Exploration Award for his work on the Arrow Deposit.
Moving forward, Standard Uranium intends to continue to explore the Davidson River Project including an inaugural exploration drilling program expected to begin in Q3 2020. The company is optimistic that it has one of the most promising land packages in Saskatchewan’s Southwest Athabasca Basin, which has attracted the attention of resource companies including Cameco (TSX:CCO, NYSE:CCJ), Orano, NexGen Energy (TSX:NXE, NYSE:NXE), Fission Uranium (TSX:FCU, OTCQX:FCUUF), Fission 3.0 (TSXV:FUU,OTCQB:FISOF) and Denison Mines (TSX:DML, NYSE:DNN).
- Davidson River uranium project comprises 25,886 hectares of the Patterson Lake Uranium District, located in the southwest Athabasca Basin
- The Davidson River Project is highly prospective for basement-hosted uranium deposits yet remains untested by drilling despite its location along trend from recent high-grade uranium discoveries. An NI 43-101 Technical Report filed on the Davidson River project has outlined the potential for a two-phase exploration program
- STND’s Ascent and Canary projects are located within the Eastern Athabasca Basin region, and complement the company’s existing Atlantic Project
- STND’s Gunnar Project, located south of the Beaverlodge Uranium District, is targeting unconformity-style uranium mineralization
- The company’s geological team has proven experience in the Athabasca Basin
