June 13, 2024 (Source) — Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corp. (CSE: API) (OTCQX: APAAF) (FSE: A0I0) (MUN: A0I0) (BER: A0I0) (the “Company” or “Appia“) is pleased to announce the details regarding their upcoming diamond drilling program at their Loranger property, SK. Located within the eastern Wollaston Domain, Loranger is situated adjacent to the renowned, uranium-rich Athabasca Basin and holds strong potential for hosting valuable uranium deposits. The focus of this program is to strategically target highlighted NE-SW electromagnetic conductors at depth (Figure 1) using results from the VTEM Plus geophysical survey conducted in 2021 by Geotech Airborne Geophysical Surveys Ltd.

Stephen Burega, President, stated: “We are looking forward to getting our diamond drilling program at Loranger underway. The project is adjacent to the east side of the uranium-rich Athabasca Basin, and this program targets NE-SW electromagnetic conductors identified by the 2021 Resistivity Depth Imaging survey, aiming to uncover significant uranium deposits.”

Starting mid-June, 2024, Appia aims to drill 1,000 total meters across 3 to 4 drill holes, targeting depths of 200 to 300 meters. The operation will be supported by Mustang Helicopters Inc., utilizing one Hydracore Diamond Drill supplied and operated by Apex Diamond Drilling Ltd. In a collaborative effort with YNLR and the local Hatchet Lake First Nations Band, the Loranger project will be proudly supported by local community employees, infrastructure, materials, and resources.

The Loranger drilling program will mark a significant advancement in the exploration and development of this Saskatchewan property, underscoring the Company’s commitment to engaging and supporting local communities while pursuing its strategic objectives.
