WHISKEY GAP PROJECT
The Whiskey Gap Property consists of 2 metallic mineral permits, each containing approximately an area of 36 square miles of favorable fluvial sandstone.
The Whiskey Gap property is underlain by a series of permeable fluvial sandstones of Cretaceous age similar to sandstones in Wyoming that host significant roll front Uranium deposits. Preliminary sampling of water sources defines several very strong radon and uranium anomalies, which compare favorably with studies conducted near sandstone hosted Uranium ore bodies in South Texas and Wyoming. These water samples indicate that Uranium is present.
Extensive exploration and drilling has been completed on the Whisky Gap uranium project in Southern Alberta. Situated along the Alberta Montana border, the easily accessible Whiskey Gap Property contains an approximate area of 36 square miles (44,400 acres) of sandstone which has the geological profile known to host sandstone style Uranium deposits.
Sandstone deposits presently constitute about 18% of current world Uranium resources. These ore bodies are commonly low to medium grade (0.05 – 0.4% U3O 8) and are small to medium in size (ranging up to a maximum of 50,000 t U3O 8). The primary uranium minerals discovered are uraninite and coffinite. When permeable sandstone exists within such ore bodies, large conventional mining/milling operations have consistently been replaced by less expensive In Situ Leach (ISL) mining methods.
