Takara Announces Planned Athabasca Basin Saskatchewan Uranium Exploration Program

Posted: Updated:

TORONTO, ONTARIO / ACCESSWIRE / April 7, 2014 / Takara Resources Inc. (“Takara” or the “Company”) (TSXV:TKK) is pleased to announce its planned 2014 exploration program. It will commence in the spring once drier ground conditions are present. Specifically Takara will carry out an airborne magnetometer and radiometric survey across its 19,100 Ha claims holdings just north of Uranium City, targeting the known structures containing uranium mineralization. Following the interpretation of the airborne survey results Takara will carry out ground surveys on the targets identified to establish drilling locations. Takara expects to be able to execute this program in an efficient time frame at comparatively lower cost.

Takara’s initial exploration strategy is to target known bedrock hosted uranium mineralization in the past producing Beaverlodge district. The Company’s claims have numerous uranium showings including trenches, drill holes, adits and shafts from production activity in the region dating back to the 1980′s and earlier. These targets are expected to be less expensive and faster to find, delineate and develop than other deeper sandstone covered targets in the Athabasca Basin. As the demand for uranium increases in the next few years, potential near surface assets will be at a premium because of the ease of exploration and development. Having known uranium mineralization and past production on and near the property demonstrates the economic potential of the area.

Takara is also actively pursuing exposure to exploration assets elsewhere in the Basin to broaden our exploration asset portfolio. Our focus is areas of near the basin perimeter and/or shallow sandstone cover in order to maximize exploration efficiency. These negotiations currently include joint venture and acquisition opportunities.
