Vancouver, British Columbia – October 11, 2022 – Kraken Energy Corp. (CSE: UUSA; OTCQB: UUSAF) (the “Company” or “Kraken Energy”) is pleased to report that it has received permits to drill the Garfield Hills Uranium Property (“Garfield Hills” or the “Property”) in Nevada.
A drilling permit has been obtained from the Nevada Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) for an up to 5,000 metre (“m”) (16,400 feet), 25-hole diamond drill program to test the extent of uranium mineralization that includes historic drill intercepts from the late-1960s of 14 m (46 feet) at 0.26% U308 and 14 m (46 feet) at 0.18% U308¹. Phase I of the program includes up to 2,000 m of drilling and is expected to commence mid-October. The Company also plans to carry out an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) airborne radiometric and magnetic survey during Q4, 2022, concurrent with the upcoming drilling program.
The Company does not treat these historical results as current and has not completed sufficient work to verify such historical results.
Mathew Schwab, CEO of Kraken Energy, commented: “With an approved drilling permit now in hand, we are ready to commence the Phase I drilling program at our newly acquired Garfield Hills property. Through multiple reconnaissance field visits this summer, our team has identified several highly compelling exploration targets on which we plan to complete up to 5,000 m of HQ drilling.”
The Company also announces that it has granted incentive stock options to purchase a total of 2,475,000 common shares at an exercise price of $1.00 per share for a period of five years to certain directors, officers and consultants in accordance with the provisions of its stock option plan.
