April 03, 2024 (Source) — Terra Balcanica Resources Corp. (“Terra” or the “Company”) (CSE:TERA; FRA:UB1), a multi-jurisdictional exploration company focused on supporting the global transition to clean energy, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-binding Letter of Intent (the “Agreement”) with a wholly owned subsidiary of Fulcrum Metals Plc., (“Fulcrum”, AIM:FMET). Pursuant to the Agreement, Terra will have an option (the “Option Agreement”) to acquire a 100% interest in Fulcrum’s Charlot-Neely, Fontaine Lake, Snowbird and South Pendleton uranium licences (the “Licences”) located in northern Saskatchewan, Canada and collectively encompassing 596.71 km2 of highly prospective ground for a uranium discovery.


  • Proximal to northern and southeastern edges of the Athabasca Basin (“Basin”) in northern Saskatchewan, a premium mining district and leading global source of high-grade uranium;
  • Charlot-Neely is located within the emerging Uranium City district on the northwestern margin of the Basin
  • Historical work at the projects has demonstrated evidence of uranium mineralization along favourable structural trends with prospective target horizons based on electromagnetic conductors;
  • Future exploration requires the undertaking of a modern systematic geologic fieldwork to determine the uranium potential.

Terra Balcanica CEO, Dr. Aleksandar Mišković, commented: “In our pursuit of high-quality assets worldwide, Terra Balcanica has secured an option to acquire a Canadian uranium portfolio covering close to 600 km2 with tremendous potential for discovery. In a world transitioning to green energy solutions, the acquisition of these assets provides a more robust and diverse exploration portfolio for Terra. Although there has been an increase in activity in the uranium sector, we are at the early stages of a commodity super-cycle and being able to acquire such a large, advanced uranium portfolio on favourable terms was a clear opportunity for our shareholders. It is the right time, jurisdiction, and commodity to augment our advanced Balkan portfolio and to further participate in the changing energy landscape. We look forward to working with Fulcrum to apply their technical and jurisdictional expertise to advance these Saskatchewan uranium projects, and we are excited by the addition of a strategic commodity to Terra’s existing polymetallic portfolio.” 

Portfolio Overview and Discovery Opportunity

The licence portfolio totals 596.71 km2 targeting major NE-SW trending structures along strike from historic uranium mines and projects that have attracted significant investment. Discoveries such as the Arrow (4.3Mt at 0.83% U3O8; https://www.nexgenenergy.ca/exploration/overview) and Triple R (2.7Mt at 1.94% U3O8 https://fissionuranium.com/projects/triple-r-deposit/project-overview/) have proved the concept of exploring along structures outside of the Athabasca basin.
