Strathmore Plus Energy Corporation (TSXV: SUU.H) (OTC: SUUFF) (“Strathmore Plus” or “the Company“) is pleased to announce initial results from a scintillometer survey at their Night Owl uranium project in the Shirley Basin district of Wyoming. Strathmore has confirmed elevated levels of gamma radiation at the surface including readings over 9,999 counts per second (cps). This survey was performed by Terrence Osier, P. Geo., Vice President of Exploration for Strathmore, using a GR-110G portable gamma ray scintillometer. The high levels of surface radiation were located along outcrop and surveyed on June 12, 2022. Strathmore will be sending grab samples to a certified assay lab for radiometric, equilibrium, and chemical analyses as the work continues. Strathmore plans on a larger work program to determine the extent of mineralization on the Night Owl property. A surface exploration permit, to include trenching and shallow drilling, will be applied for over the coming weeks.
The survey was conducted in an area that was historically trenched and a limited amount of mineralized material excavated in the 1950-60s (approximately 93 tons @ 0.245 U3O8). The extent of radiologically elevated outcrop, ranging from 200 to 9,999+ cps, was approximately 400 feet long by 30-50 feet wide. An area of higher concentrated counts (4,000-9,999+) had been in part previously exposed and mined, covering approximately 50 by 50 feet. The uranium mineralization is contained within a brecciated zone lying at the unconformable contact between the Mississippian Madison Formation (limestone) and the overlying Pennsylvanian-Permian Casper Formation (sandstone).
Technical Advisor Mr. DeJoia stated, “I first became aware of the Night Owl property in the 1970s when I helped the original owners mobilize a drill rig to the property. Having these results come back on our first day of work on the property justifies a lot of the curiosity I have had over the last 45 years. I believe we have something special here and am looking forward to a more detailed examination of our Night Owl property.”

Natural gamma radiation that is reported in this news release was measured in counts per second (cps) using a handheld GR-110G/E portable gamma ray scintillometer. The reader is cautioned that scintillometer readings are not directly or uniformly related to uranium grades of the rock sample measured and should be used only as a preliminary indication of the presence of radioactive materials.
