Three New Uranium Targets in Argentina with Airborne Survey

Posted by on Tuesday, 5 October, 2010

Blue Sky Uranium Corp. announces it has completed a 22,214 line km regional airborne radiometric and magnetic survey in the prospective Rio Negro basin, one of the largest known private geophysical surveys ever completed in Argentina. Three very large new uranium channel anomalies were identified by the airborne survey and Blue Sky has applied for 8 licenses, (71,765 hectares) to cover these new targets. The new uranium targets include:

-Paso Cordoba: 15 km long by 1 km wide uranium channel airborne anomaly.

-Evelina: 11 km long by 2 km wide uranium channel airborne anomaly.

-Norma: 7 km long by 1 km wide uranium channel airborne anomaly.

Blue Sky’s objective in the Province of Rio Negro is to evaluate the regional potential to host additional new uranium deposits and capitalize on the Company’s first mover advantage. Management is very excited by the discovery of these new large uranium targets and is currently working to expedite granting of the concessions in order to commence detailed ground exploration and evaluation of these new targets concurrent with the ongoing exploration at the Company’s ANIT project. These new discoveries highlight the regional potential within the previously unexplored San Jorge basin in Rio Negro province.

For comparison purposes, when airborne data over the Company’s previously-discovered ANIT and Santa Barbara zones is processed using the same parameters, ANIT forms a 16 km long by 1.5 km wide anomaly and Santa Barbara consists of three 1km wide zones with combined strike length of 20km. Maps of these radiometric anomalies are available to view on Blue Sky’s web site (

Rio Negro Regional Airborne Geophysics

In April of this year Blue Sky was granted a special airborne geophysics license covering 2.265 million hectares which included all of the prospective areas for Uranium in the San Jorge sedimentary basin of Rio Negro Province, Argentina. The license allowed Blue Sky to fly high resolution airborne radiometric and magnetic surveys and Blue Sky had the exclusive rights to stake new exploration licenses on the targets identified in the survey. The contractors who completed the 22,214 line km airborne survey were global specialists APG Geophysics who used a fixed wing aircraft loaded with 3 large crystal detection packs to search for ANIT-style uranium mineralization over almost all the prospective sedimentary basin within Rio Negro. At the same time as Blue Sky flew infill flight lines over Blue Sky’s ANIT and Santa Barbara targets to provide back ground data for comparison purposes and to develop a validation process for analyzing and prioritizing new targets.
