TORONTO, ONTARIO, January 17, 2017 – Appia Energy Corp. (the “Company or “Appia”) (CSE: API) is pleased to announce i) the receipt of necessary work permits from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment and Saskatchewan Water Security Agency to complete ground gravity surveys and a diamond drill hole program, and ii) the commencement of ground gravity surveys on its Loranger property (the “Property”). The gravity surveys are being carried out by MWH Geo-Surveys Ltd. of Vernon, BC. The purpose of the surveys is to identify clay alteration halos that are commonly associated with Athabasca Basin high-grade uranium deposits. The Property is located 28 km southeast of Cameco’s Rabbit Lake mill, Athabasca Basin, northern Saskatchewan.
The gravity surveys will cover approximately 13.8 km of the 94.0 km of primary structural corridors that were identified on the Property from the recently completed airborne VTEMTM Max EM and magnetic survey (see Appia News Release dated December 13, 2016). The first survey will cover the historic Royal Canadian Ventures Grid No. 2 area (“RCV area”) where surface sampling and diamond drilling programs from 1977 to 1979 have identified uranium mineralization at surface and down to a vertical depth of approximately 100 m. The first survey will also cover a highly conductive structural corridor that continues for 2.5 km southwest of the last drill hole fence from the historic drill programs.
