Stallion Discoveries Corp. Announces Name Change to Stallion Uranium Corp.
Vancouver, British Columbia, October 12, 2023 – Stallion Discoveries Corp. (the “Company” or “Stallion”) (TSX-V: STUD; OTCQB: STLNF; FSE: HM40), a prominent uranium explorer in the Athabasca Basin, is pleased to announce the Company will change its name to Stallion Uranium Corp., pending TSX Venture Exchange approval.
Under the name of Stallion Uranium Corp., the Company aims to underscore its focus on uranium exploration in the Athabasca Basin. Stallion, through three separate transactions over the previous nine months has built the largest continuous land package in the prolific and under-explored Western Athabasca Basin. The company is driven by a mission to find the next significant uranium discovery and fuel the future with uranium. Uranium plays a pivotal role in nuclear power generation, which is increasingly recognized as a low-carbon, high-energy alternative to traditional fossil fuels and essential in the global transition to clean energy.
"Stallion Uranium Corp. reflects our dedication to advancing our uranium projects in the Athabasca Basin and our commitment to advancing sustainable energy solutions,” expressed Stallion’s CEO, Drew Zimmerman. “The world needs a significant amount of exploration for uranium resources to ensure a pipeline of available deposits that will contribute to fueling a more sustainable future.”
Recent Exploration Highlights
Stallion has completed a regional airborne exploration on its 100% owned mineral claims covering 78,831 hectares in the Athabasca Basin. The program consisted of a VTEMTM Plus electromagnetic (EM), and magnetic survey designed to identify prospective conductive corridors and drill targets. When combined with all available historical data Stallion was able to:
- Identify over 35 km of cumulative prospective conductive corridors.
- Prioritize 4 key target areas across the Coffer and Gunter Lake projects.
- Coffer Project is ideally situated 3 km from the Saskatoon Lake Conductor which hosts the Shea Creek Project. The VTEMTM Plus survey results identified untested conductors which occur sub-parallel to the uranium bearing Saskatoon Lake Conductor.
- Coffer Project target areas are proximal to the Clearwater Domain which is theorized to be a key driver of uranium bearing fluid for F3 Uranium’s JR Zone.
- Multiple structural trends that reflect the Patterson Lake trend have been identified as priority areas on the Gunter Lake Project. The conductors extend onto the Stallion / Atha JV claim package which will be further defined with exploration in fall 2023.
Exploration planned for this fall will include a Ground Time Domain Electromagnetic Survey over 4 target areas identified on the Coffer and Gunter Lake Projects. The surveys will increase the resolution from the existing regional survey data and allow for more precise drill targeting of potential uranium mineralization zones. These are highly prospective targets areas that Stallion has prioritized as it prepares for its maiden drill program planned to begin at the start of 2024.
In addition to the exploration on the Company’s 100% owned projects, Stallion will be embarking on a new frontier of exploration in the under-explored Western Athabasca Basin. The company will be utilizing a regional airborne EM survey to fly over 5,550 line-km’s, efficiently covering the entire ATHA Energy JV Project. Stallion will utilize 3 separate survey systems in different project locations, each designed to identify new prospective conductive corridors where no effective exploration program has ever been completed. This program will allow Stallion to locate target areas over vast areas that were previously unexplored, allowing Stallion further prospects for additional high priority target areas.
Stallion’s Gold and Critical Mineral Assets
While the focus of the Company has shifted to focus on its uranium assets, Stallion still holds its Horse Heaven and Richmond Mountain gold and critical mineral assets in Idaho and Nevada. These are both incredibly strong exploration projects, with both neighbouring world class deposits that have significant milestones in the coming months. The Company will continue to work to create value for its shareholders as it explores various options to see the advancement of these projects.
The transition from Stallion Discoveries Corp. to Stallion Uranium Corp. will not impact the company's core values or dedication to excellence. Stakeholders, including shareholders, clients, and partners, can expect the same level of professionalism, integrity, and innovation that Stallion Discoveries Corp has been known for over the years.
