Under revised terms negotiated with Skyharbour, Valor will issue SkyHarbour 30,000,000 shares and make a C$50,000 cash payment to complete the second earn-in milestone, with C$5,000 to be paid immediately and the balance within 60 days of this announcement.

Valor has also completed its expenditure commitments under the earn-in, being C$3.5 million over a 3-year period. Following the drill campaign completed in 2022, together with the airborne gravity survey completed last year, the Company has met its exploration expenditure commitments under the agreement.

The final payment of C$175,000, due in February 2024, is the last hurdle before the Company earns its 80% interest in the Hook Lake Project.

Valor Executive Chairman, George Bauk, said: “This part of the Athabasca Basin continues to be a focus of significant uranium exploration activity, particularly since the recent discoveries by 92 Energy (ASX:92E) and Baselode Energy (TSXV: FIND) at Gemini and ACKIO, located just 30km to the north of Hook Lake.

“The Hook Lake Project has a large number of prospective targets identified by last year’s airborne gravity survey (see announcement on 21 September 2022 titled “Eleven new targets in the Athabasca Basin uncovered through modern exploration surveys”). Work has been completed in 2022 to review all of the newly-acquired exploration data resulting in confirmation of a number of priority targets that will continue to be worked up to drill target status.

"The most significant of the 11 targets include V-Grid, West Way (-1, -2, -3) and Thompson Lake, where gravity lows have been identified and are near coincident with uranium radiometric anomalies or north-south Tabbernor fault structures, as shown in Figure 2 below.”
