“In 2023, ATHA invested in the largest-ever EM survey in the Athabasca Basin, providing the Company with hundreds of kilometers of prospective corridors to further investigate for uranium mineralization in the preeminent location for large-scale uranium discoveries. The datasets resulting from those efforts have invited significant interest from other exploration groups eager to further explore our early-stage properties, offering capital-efficient upside for our shareholders while we continue to make significant investments into post-discovery projects like Angilak and Gemini,” commented ATHA CEO Troy Boisjoli on the development.

ATHA Energy last traded at $0.76 on the TSX Venture.
