Stretching across 26,408.8 hectares, a vast landscape measuring 57 kilometres by 9 kilometres.
Our dedicated team is stationed at the heart of the Wollaston Village, a community that embodies the essence of our commitment to inclusivity and collaboration. Together, we work tirelessly to explore and harness the power of uranium for a cleaner future.
At Appia, we are not just exploring uranium; we are exploring a cleaner future.
Within the drill core, we’ve unearthed up to 0.34 wt% U3O8, marking significant progress in our exploration journey.
Our comprehensive geophysical studies include electromagnetic, ground gravity, magnetics, Very Low Frequency assessments, Resistivity Depth Imaging, and radiometrics, providing a holistic view of the property.
Appia’s mission is rooted in the growing global demand for clean, reliable energy. The exploration company is dedicated to supporting various industries in their use of uranium. By uncovering uranium resources with the potential to supply nuclear power generation, Appia aims to play a vital role in the global transition to cleaner and more sustainable energy sources.
The world’s demand for uranium is on the rise as countries seek reliable, low-carbon energy sources. Nuclear power has emerged as a key player in reducing carbon emissions and ensuring a stable energy supply. Appia is prepared to seek uranium resources responsibly, ensuring that the world’s uranium wealth is harnessed without compromising the environment.
The Loranger Property occupies a prime location on the southeastern shores of Wollaston Lake in northern Saskatchewan. It’s more than just a piece of land; it’s a cornerstone of the region’s uranium industry, situated adjacent to the vibrant northern settlement of Wollaston Lake and the Dene First Nations community of Wollaston Post, collectively known as “Wollaston Lake” or the “Village.”
Located approximately 28 kilometres northwest of the Property lies Cameco’s renowned Rabbit Lake uranium mill and Eagle Point mine operations, an enduring symbol of the uranium industry’s vitality. The Loranger Property is centrally positioned at 594,400 metres east and 6,424,400 metres north, employing the Universal Transverse Mercator (“UTM”) conformal projection with North American Datum 1983 (“NAD83”) from Zone 13. It encompasses sections of National Topographic System (“NTS”) index map sheets 64E12, 64E13, 64E14, and 64L03.
To the southwest, the Property extends within roughly 10 kilometres east of the Geikie River bridge, a crucial point along the all-season Provincial Highway 905 (located at the 184-kilometer mark on the Highway). In the summer, the Wollaston Barge Ferry provides a vital link between Highway 905 Barge Landing at Hidden Bay (marking the 230-kilometer point on the Highway) and the Wollaston Lake community. This essential service is operated by Hatchet Lake Development Limited Partnership, with vehicular passage subject to tolls and pre-booking.
Come winter, a vital ice-road connection is established between the Barge Landing and the Village. The Saskatchewan Department of Highways and Transportation ensures the safety and jurisdictional authority of this ice-road, typically opening it to public transportation from mid-January to early-April, contingent on weather conditions. This network of accessible routes underlines the Property’s strategic location and its commitment to year-round accessibility.
For those who choose the skies, the Loranger Property remains accessible throughout the year, with scheduled flights providing a convenient link to this exceptional site. Whether by land, water, or air, the Loranger Property stands as a testament to its commitment to uranium excellence and to serving as a vital contributor to the region’s growth.
1978 marked a pivotal moment when uranium first revealed itself on the Loranger property. This promising discovery unfolded as part of an exploration program in the basement rocks. The Loranger Property, is deeply steeped in the world-renowned Athabasca Basin.
The Loranger area lay beneath the expanse of the Athabasca Basin. Ancient tectonic forces shaped the region. The mystery of uranium’s presence on the Loranger property emerged from the faulted history of the bedrock. These natural fault lines served as conduits, where the intricate alchemy resulted in the creation of uranium mineralized zones.
Across the vast canvas of the Athabasca Basin, uranium manifests in diverse forms: pods, veins, and grand pegmatite masses. The rocks on the Loranger property, a fusion of gneiss—metamorphic rock—and fiery granitic pegmatites, bear witness to the crucible of immense pressure and heat that forged this unique geological composition.
The property is situated within the Eastern Wollaston Domain, next to the Western Wollaston Domain and Wollaston-Mudjatik Transition Zone (WMTZ), which is renowened for hosting over 1 billion pounds of high-grade U3O8.
Journeying through the Loranger property reveals an intricate tapestry. Here, numerous intrusions of uranium-bearing pegmatite rock have been unveiled. These formations disclose their secrets through heightened radioactivity patterns, often found in proximity to a recognized conductive, graphitic corridor—the Tabbenor Fault System. Together, they craft a tale of exploration, discovery, and a future teetering on the edge of new possibilities.
