Mining Lease Secured at Copper Mountain, Setting the Stage for Future Production

By: Newsfile

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 22, 2024) - Myriad Uranium Corp. (CSE: M) (OTCQB: MYRUF) (FSE: C3Q) ("Myriad" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its earn-in partner at the Copper Mountain Uranium Project, Rush Rare Metals Corp. ("Rush"), has entered into a 20-year mining lease (the "Lease") with Diamond X Ranch, LLC ("Diamond X") dated April 9, 2024, with automatic extensions if mining is in progress. The area subject to the Lease (see Figure 1 below) forms part of the Copper Mountain Uranium Project, in which Myriad has a 75% earnable interest pursuant to a property option agreement with Rush. With the Lease, the size of the Copper Mountain Uranium Project increases by 320 acres from 3,886 to 4,206 acres.

Under the Lease, Myriad has paid Diamond X a US$5,000 signing bonus and the first-year property lease payment of US$8,000 (US$25 per acre). Uranium produced from portions of the leased area where Diamond X holds only surface rights will attract a flat 1% royalty on net returns. Uranium produced from areas where Diamond X holds both surface and mineral rights will attract a flat 3% royalty on net returns. "Net returns" means realised proceeds from the sale of uranium less processing, transportation, and some other costs.

The addition of the Diamond X claims is significant, as it completes the picture for the central part of the overall Myriad Uranium claims and secures the eastern portions of the North Canning (Canning) deposit area. The Canning deposit is known to contain between 8.79 Mlbs (at 0.017% eU3O8) and 19.0 Mlbs (at 0.039% eU3O8), as previously reported here, and is the primary target for planned verification work that is to be undertaken during the upcoming summer field season.

Thomas Lamb, Myriad's CEO, said: "This is a critical area at Copper Mountain and we're delighted to conclude a lease with Diamond X for access to it on fair terms. We have reasons to be optimistic that verification of resources and the pathway to uranium production at Copper Mountain could begin sooner than expected, especially if we opt for conventional mining, and it was important to secure this area well in advance. We have been boosted by our recent discovery and reporting of historical high grades (up to 3,850 ppm) and long (up to 291 ft) drill intervals relating to our central Canning Deposit (see our March 5, 2024 news release), which had never been publicly reported. Union Pacific was developing plans to mine Canning and several other deposits within the project area, when prices fell dramatically in the late 1970s. Rising prices raise this prospect to a new level of interest again. Now we have everything we need in terms of mineral and access rights at Canning to verify and restate the historical resources. I'd like to note that Union Pacific never drilled deeper than 183 metres anywhere at Copper Mountain and we believe that significant high grade potential could exist deeper along fault boundaries throughout the project areas. I'll be visiting Copper Mountain in a few weeks with our geologist George van der Walt to locate and examine old holes and plan our summer and fall exploration program there. I look forward to providing investors with an update after our visit."

About Myriad Uranium Corp.

Myriad Uranium Corp. is a uranium exploration company with an earnable 75% interest in the Copper Mountain Uranium Project in Wyoming, USA. Copper Mountain hosts several known uranium deposits and historic uranium mines, including the Arrowhead Mine which produced 500,000 lbs of eU3O8. Copper Mountain saw extensive drilling and development by Union Pacific, which developed a mine plan and built a leach pad for one of the deposits at Copper Mountain. Operations ceased in 1980 before mining could commence due to falling uranium prices. Approximately 2,000 boreholes have been drilled at Copper Mountain and the project area has significant exploration upside. Union Pacific is estimated to have spent C$117 million (2023 dollars) exploring and developing Copper Mountain, generating significant historical resource estimates which are detailed here.

Myriad also holds 80% ownership of over 1,800 km2 of uranium exploration licenses in the Tim Mersoìˆ Basin, Niger, with the option to earn up to 100%. These licenses are surrounded by many of the most significant uranium deposits in Africa, including Orano's 384 Mlbs eU3O8 Imouraren, Global Atomic's 236 Mlbs Dasa, and Goviex's 100 Mlbs Madaouela, and on the same fault structures. Myriad also has a 50% interest in the Millen Mountain Property in Nova Scotia, Canada, with the other 50% held by Probe Metals Inc.
