Blue Sky Hires Technical Consultant; Charts New Path for Uranium Projects in Argentina
Vancouver, BC / Marketwired / July 11, 2016 / Blue Sky Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: BSK, FRA: MAL (WKN: A0MKXP), "Blue Sky" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has engaged Mr. Guillermo Pensado as a Technical Consultant to the Company, and is proceeding with a new exploration campaign that seeks to advance and integrate several of Blue Sky's significant uranium discoveries identified in previous exploration programs.
Mr. Pensado's renewed approach will focus on the Anit, Ivana and Santa Barbara projects, which are located in the same geologic environment along a 120 kilometre corridor in the province of Rio Negro, Argentina. The projects are known to host near-surface uranium mineralization and are open for expansion. The three projects are considered to be part of the same larger geologic system, therefore the new objective is to integrate the three projects into a combined exploration project, to delineate resources that could support a single combined low-cost surficial mining operation. The potential cash-flow from an operation of this type would provide the base to expand our exploration program on the several hundred thousand hectares of property that the Company currently holds.
"We are very excited to have attracted a high caliber individual in Mr. Pensado to help us define a new direction that capitalizes on the excellent assets we have while working within the current market conditions," commented Blue Sky President and CEO Nikolaos Cacos.
The US$500,000, six month work program has been developed as a first stage of the strategy, including:
- Updating of the environmental permits to permit exploration work
- Standardization of the geologic database for the projects
- 25 kilometer IP Survey
- Exploration pit sampling
- Metallurgical scoping studies
Mr. Pensado has extensive experience in uranium exploration, having held positions of Vice President of Exploration, Exploration Manager and Exploration Geologist for junior and senior mining companies as well as the Brazilian geological survey. Mr. Pensado holds a B.Sc. in Geology from the University of La Plata, Argentina, and M.Sc. in Mineral Exploration from Queen's University, Canada. He was awarded the David Money Medal Award from Queen's University for the Top MinEx Student in the International Program.
