Macusani Yellowcake Inc. is pleased to announce that the Company has acquired a small (300 ha) key mineral concession on the Macusani Plateau with a strong radiometrtic anomaly and uranium mineralization on surface.
This concession became available for acquisition as a result of non-payment by third parties of the annual good standing fees and the Company, through its Peruvian subsidiary, Global Gold SAC, was able to claim this mineral concession for the nominal fee of US$ 1,000 payable to the Public Mining Registry in Lima.
Newly Claimed Mineral Concession
As a result of the difficult period that the junior mining companies are presently facing, small scale local owners and companies that view uranium as a non-core asset have decided to either not continue to pay the elevated mineral rights fees accumulated over the years or simply have dropped the legal rights to own and work those mineral concessions.
Having a superior knowledge of the metallogeny and mode of occurrence of the uranium mineralization founcd on the Macusani Plateau, Macusani Yellowcake was able to act rapidly and at nominal cost to claim this small area with known uranium mineralization extending along known uranium-bearing structures identified by drilling on neighbouring concession owned by the Company. This new concession covers 300 ha and the cost to acquire it was the nominal fee of US$ 1,000.
According to Peruvian legislation when the good-standing fees are not paid on time the dropped areas revert to the state and at a certain time announced by the Public Mining Registry in Lima, the same concessions or parts thereof become available for acquisition, and may be reclaimed. The Company claimed one of the concessions that became "free" over an area that has known uranium mineralisation and a strong radiometric anomaly on surface.
This newly claimed concession lies between Macusani Yellowcake's drilled uranium occurrences known as Agaton to the west and Sayanas to the east. The Company was able to complete radiometric prospecting on the new ground between the known uranium occurrences and a strong radiometric anomaly was encountered on surface. This concession area is covered by thicker than normal soil and colluvial material displaying a lower radiometric background as the radioactivity is masked by the thick cover, however, the rhyolite outcrops on the new concession are highly anomalous (see attached map). Both Agaton and Sayanas were drilled by pre-decessor company, Solex and the first ever geological resource for these two occurrences is currently being modelled by third-party consultants with the expectation to incorporate these deposits and enlarge the company's existing resource base.
