Uravan is a Calgary, Alberta-based uranium exploration company that utilizes applied research to develop innovative exploration technologies to identify buried uranium deposits in under-explored areas. Uravan's exploration focus in uranium is for potential high-grade unconformity-related uranium deposits in the Athabasca Basin in Canada. All of the Uravan's mineral properties are considered to be in the exploration stage of development.

The Athabasca Basin is the most prolific geological domain globally for hosting large high-grade uranium deposits, having ore grades from 2% to 20% U308. These uranium deposits account for about 20% of the world's primary uranium production.

Projects in Hand

Athabasca Basin Projects, Saskatchewan, Canada

(1) Outer Ring Uranium Project

Uravan is focusing its exploration efforts on its 100% owned Outer Ring project located within the Cable Bay structural corridor, east-central Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan.

  • 100% Uravan – acquired in December 2009
  • Located along the Cable Bay structural corridor
  • Surface geochemical programs were completed in 2010, 2012 and 2015.
  • Drilling in 2011 completed 7 diamond drill holes to test several anomalous trends.

ORX Anomaly – A Drill Ready Uranium Target

  • Geochemical survey in 2015 defined a very strong discrete NE-SW trending Pb isotopic (radiogenic 207Pb/206Pb ratio) anomaly in the soil horizon clay-fraction – ORX Anomaly
  • The NE-SW trending radiogenic anomaly (ORX Anomaly) forms a significant geochemical corridor measuring 10 km long by 4 km wide
  • The ORX anomaly was further defined in May 2016 by an airborne ZTEM geophysical survey
  • The ZTEM system is considered ideal for imaging basement conductors.
  • ORX Anomaly correlates positively with a unique conductive system identified by the ZTEM survey (2016)
  • Uravan is planning a three (3) 900-metre diamond drill-holes program on its Outer Ring property
  • Project financing required for 2016 drill program

ORX Drill Targeting

  • A positive correlation between the ORX Anomaly and the ORX (ZTEM) conductive system provides specific drill-hole vectoring.
  • Two to three drill-holes are required to test this unique anomaly for potential uranium mineralization at depth.

(2) Stewardson Lake Uranium Project

Uravan optioned its 100%-owned 21,349 hectare Stewardson Lake Project to Cameco Corporation in 2012. Cameco is earning an interest and funding work programs. Uravan is the operator.

  • 100% Uravan - Optioned to Cameco in 2012
  • Located along Virgin River/ Dufferin Fault zone.
  • Adjacent to Cameco operated Virgin River Project which hosts the Centennial Deposit.
  • Surface geochemical program completed in 2011 and 2014 identifying strong surface anomalous associated with geophysical trends
  • Airborne ZTEM survey completed 2013 supporting anomalous geochemical trends.
  • 2014 and 2015 drill results vector exploration closer to discovery.
  • 2015 drill program tested C-conductor supported by anomalous surface geochemistry on L1330N
  • Drill-holes S15-003 and 004 confirming the right hydrothermal and structural components are present.
  • Drill-hole S15-003 intersected anomalous U mineralization grading 0.025% eU3O8 over 6.3 m sandstone at the unconformity.
  • Intense chlorite + kaolinite + dravite clay alteration, coincident with secondary hematite alteration in core.
  • The presence of smoky-quartz in sandstone fractures and veins suggestive of radiation-induced defects from uranium-bearing fluids.
  • Substantial radiogenic 207Pb/206Pb ratios measuring <0.41 identified coincident with U >1 ppm throughout the lower sandstone (>240m).
  • More drilling in 2017 is certainly required in Area B, a drill ready uranium target, to move closer to potential discovery

(3) Halliday Lake Uranium Project

  • 100% Uravan- Optioned to Cameco in 2012
  • EM surveys have identified 15km of conductors
  • Resistivity and geochemical surveys suggest alteration zones favorable to uranium mineralization.
  • Historic drilling intersected favorable structure, alteration and anomalous U in fractures up to 0.12% U3O8 over 0.1m.
  • Surface geochemical programs completed in 2011 and 2012.
  • Drilling in 2012 completed 5 diamond drill holes that tested surface geochemical anomalies with associated conductors.
  • Sandstone alteration and basement uranium mineralization were encountered.
  • Post drill data analysis and additional geophysics vector drilling south and west of the 2012 drilling


Technical Group and Directors

Larry Lahusen, B.Sc. Geol., Director, Chief Executive Officer

Mr. Lahusen has been active as an exploration geologist since 1969. His exploration focus has been in precious metals, base metals and uranium. Mr. Lahusen began his career exploring for uranium deposits in the Colorado Plateau region, USA. Later, as a district and an independent geologist, he directed and designed exploration programs that resulted in the discovery and subsequent development of the two uranium deposits located in the Lisbon Valley District, Utah. During the period from 1986-1997, he worked as the VP Exploration for several publicly traded junior exploration companies supervising gold exploration programs throughout western Canada. Mr. Lahusen has significant experience raising public and private venture capital for mineral exploration, has structured numerous joint venture deals and prospectus-level financing. Mr. Lahusen has been a public director of several resource companies for 20 years. In 1997 he formed Uravan Minerals Inc. With his specialized knowledge and experience in precious and base metals, Mr. Lahusen intends to make Uravan a leader in North American mineral exploration.

News Update

On October 11, 2016, Uravan Minerals Inc. announced that it has completed the ORX anomaly drill program. On Sept. 29, 2016, Uravan Minerals Inc. commenced drilling on its 100-per-cent-owned Outer Ring property in the Athabasca basin of Saskatchewan. Drill hole OR16-008 was positioned to test the uranium-bearing potential at depth of the ORX surface geochemical anomaly (ORX anomaly)

On Oct. 8, 2016, OR16-008 was completed to a target depth of 935 metres. Larry Lahusen, chief executive officer of Uravan, states: "The results of drill hole OR16-008 were decidedly disappointing, and highlights the technical challenges for intersecting deep exploration uranium targets in the Athabasca basin, particularly with limited financial resources. Although the results of OR16-008 potentially appear to be connected to a number of false positives, I want to caution and emphasise that our technical team does not view this as a misstep related to our surface geochemical techniques, but on the contrary, a call to refine the geophysical systems implemented and further innovate our surface sampling protocols to better screen potential red herrings."

On September 29, 2016, Uravan Minerals Inc. announced that it has closed the private placement announced on Aug. 12, 2016, by issuing 1.12 million units. The units were issued at a price of 30 cents per unit for aggregate proceeds of $336,000.

Proceeds of the offering will be used by Uravan to finance its drilling and exploration activities on Uravan's 100-per-cent-owned Orx project in the Athabasca basin in Saskatchewan.

On September 19, 2016, Uravan Minerals Inc. announced that it will commence drilling on its 100-per-cent-owned Outer Ring property in the Athabasca basin in Saskatchewan. Drill-hole targeting will focus on the ORX anomaly. The ORX drill program is scheduled to commence on Sept. 27, 2016. The planned program consisted of three 900-metre diamond drill holes.

On August 15, 2016, Uravan Minerals Inc. announced that it intends to issue pursuant to a non-brokered private placement up to eight million units at a price of 30 cents per unit for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $2.4-million.

The proceeds of the offering are expected to be used to finance the completion of three 900-metre diamond drill holes (DDH) on Uravan's 100-per-cent-owned Outer Ring property in the Athabasca basin.
