The following activities will be included, but not limited to, in these baseline studies.

- Radiological and chemical soil sampling
- Direct radiation (gamma) sampling

- Access agreements
- Equilibrium studies
- Amenability studies
- Labor studies
- Community relations
Mr. DeJoia, Strathmore’s Technical Advisor stated, “I am pleased with the permitting path to production Mr. Osier has identified for the Night Owl mining project. We have good and cooperative neighbors and a very favorable permitting environment in Wyoming. With the grades (up to about .384% U308) of mineralization sampled this past summer and fall, and the large areas of high surface radiometric material identified by the airborne survey in fall 2022, “I envision this type of project lending itself towards a heap leaching recovery style operation”. As we say so often in the industry- “Grade is King”. I anticipate a rewarding exploration program and a straightforward permitting process with an uninterrupted schedule”.
The Company is preparing a permit application to explore and drill at Night Owl this summer. Exploratory drilling will be conducted at the original Night Owl mine in addition to several new areas defined by the airborne radiometric and magnetic survey completed in part during October 2022. The geophysical survey is slated for completion at Night Owl this spring, including the recently acquired State of Wyoming mineral lease lands.
About Strathmore Plus Uranium Corp.
Strathmore has 3 uranium projects in Wyoming, including Beaver Rim, Agate, and Night Owl. The Night Owl property is a former producing mine that was in production in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The Agate and Beaver Rim properties contain uranium in Wyoming-type roll front deposits suitable for In-situ recovery (ISR) based on historical drilling data. Night Owl is expected to be a shallow conventional mine with processing to be accomplished via an off-site heap leach. Strathmore received an exploration permit for the Beaver Rim project in October and is now applying for both exploration and drilling permits for Night Owl and Agate.
