Pegasus Resources Inc. (TSX-V: PEGA) (Frankfurt – 0QS) (OTC/Pink Sheet symbol: SLTFF) is pleased to announce the acquisition, by staking, of the Energy Sands Project located in Emery County, Utah. The Project consists of sandstone-hosted uranium and vanadium mineralization with demonstrated potential to establish resources, with historical small-scale mining having occurred in two isolated regions of the Property.
“We feel the global uranium market should continue to build strength as the push for green energy alternatives accelerate. As we build our diversified uranium portfolio we are continuing to evaluate uranium assets in Canada and the United States,” states Charles Desjardins, CEO and President of Pegasus. “Given the present geopolitical climate uranium demand should continue to accelerate.”
Uranium mineralization on the Project is hosted within the Salt Wash Member of the Jurassic Morrison Formation. Mineralization within the Tidwell Mineral Belt of the San Rafael Uranium District is oriented in a series of roughly northeast trends. Individual mineralized bodies are tabular to lenticular with the long axis aligned along the trend.
The Energy Sands Project is on-trend and approximately 4 kilometres from the Western Uranium’s Rafael Uranium Project, which is host to 758,050 tons of indicated mineral resources averaging 0.225% U3O8 and 0.30% V2O5 (containing 3,404,600 million pounds of U3O8 and 4,595,600 million pounds of V2O5); and 453,850 tons of inferred mineral resources averaging 0.205% U3O8 and 0.28% V2O5 (containing 1,859,600 million pounds of U3O8 and 2,510,600 million pounds of V2O5), at a cut off grade of 0.06% U3O8 (from the Nov-19, 2014 Technical Report filed by Western Uranium).
Management cautions that past results or discoveries on adjacent properties (i.e. Rafael Uranium) may not necessarily be indicative to the presence of mineralization on the Company’s properties (i.e. Energy Sands).
A historical report, archived by the United Stated Geological Survey (USGS) outlines small-scale production of uranium by the Minerals Corporation of America, totalling 51.8 Tons at a grade of 0.373% U3O8 and 1.10% V2O5 occurred between 1953 and 1956 (Byers & Robertson, 1956).
The Company’s QP is not able to verify the amount and grades of the historical production.
