Aero Energy Announces Drilling Underway at the Murmac Uranium Project, Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan

Jun 12, 2024

Vancouver, British Columbia – June 12, 2024 – Aero Energy Ltd (TSXV: AERO) (OTC Pink: AAUGF) (FSE: UU3) (“Aero” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the commencement of drilling at its Murmac Uranium Project in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan. This significant milestone follows the recent identification of thirteen high-priority drill targets, marking the start of Aero’s first-ever drill program (read the news release here).

Drilling Program

Drilling is now underway on the first hole and will cover approximately 2,600 meters through ten to thirteen drill holes at the Murmac Project. The program, operated by Fortune Bay Corp., is designed to explore for high-grade basement-hosted uranium deposits and is adaptable based on real-time findings. The targets were selected based on a high-resolution VTEM™️ survey completed in April 2024 and 3D modelling of ground gravity data. Geophysical signatures, geological features, proximity to historical uranium occurrences, and positive past drilling results by Fortune Bay further informed these selections.

Drilling has begun at target P7 with targets A15 and P4 scheduled next. Target descriptions and locations are provided in Table 1 and Figure 1, respectfully.

In addition to Murmac, Aero is prioritizing further exploration at the Sun Dog and Strike projects, planning an additional 2,000 meters of fully funded drilling. These efforts highlight Aero’s commitment to uncovering high-grade uranium deposits across its 250,000-acre land package in the Athabasca Basin.

Discovery of Radioactivity Proximal to Targets

Two occurrences of strong to intense radioactivity have been discovered at surface while scouting the initial drill site locations.

Target A15: 60,793 counts-per-second* in the hanging wall of the target within hematized foliation parallel fractures.

Target P4: 13,533 counts-per-second in the hanging wall of the target within hematized fault hosted fractures perpendicular to foliation.

*Measured by handheld RS-125 Super-SPEC gamma ray spectrometer manufactured by Radiation Solutions Inc.

Galen McNamara, CEO of Aero Energy, stated, “The identification of new zones of strong radioactivity adjacent to drill pads and in close association with the targets below underscores the prospectivity of the Murmac Project. Thanks to the robust earlier exploration work by Fortune Bay and the collaborative target selection process, we are poised to embark on this exciting phase of our drilling program and look forward to the potential discoveries ahead.”

About the Murmac Project

Murmac, situated between the historical Gunnar and Lorado Uranium Mines, has shown significant promise. Historical exploration (1960-1980) revealed numerous high-grade uranium occurrences, though these were not systematically explored for basement-hosted mineralization typical of the Athabasca Basin. A 2022 drilling program by Fortune Bay confirmed the potential for high-grade uranium with significant findings in several drill holes, validating the exploration model.

Corporate Update

The Company also announces that it has entered into an agreement with Triomphe Holdings Ltd. (dba Capital Analytica) (“Capital Analytica”) for investor relations and communication services (the “Consulting Agreement”). The Consulting Agreement has an initial term of six months, commencing June 15, 2024 under which the Company will pay to Capital Analytica an aggregate of $120,000 at a rate of $20,000 per month, and has an option to renew the Consulting Agreement for an additional 6 months at a rate of $10,000 per month, unless terminated earlier in accordance with the Consulting Agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the Consulting Agreement, Capital Analytica will provide ongoing capital markets consultation, ongoing social media consultation regarding engagement and enhancement, social sentiment reporting, social engagement reporting, discussion forum monitoring and reporting, corporate video dissemination, and other related investor relations services. Capital Analytica is a Nanaimo based company owned and operated by Jeff French who is arm’s length to the Company and holds no securities, directly or indirectly of the Company.
