North Wollaston

Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan

Current Reports

As of the current date, there are no official technical or mineral reports available for the North Wollaston Project. Appia is committed to maintaining up-to-date and comprehensive documentation for all its projects, adhering to industry standards. This dedication to transparency ensures that stakeholders and interested parties will have access to accurate and relevant information. Appia remains steadfast in providing thorough insights into its projects, fostering trust and transparency within the exploration and mining community.

Current Work

In 2022, Appia completed a comprehensive geophysical survey on its North Wollaston uranium property in Saskatchewan’s Athabasca Basin. The survey identified and extended electromagnetic conductors, revealed graphite-rich anomalies exceeding 10 km, recognized a major conductor offset linked to the Tabbernor fault system, and observed significant conductor breaks with potential fault reactivation. CEO Tom Drivas emphasized the survey’s role in drill targeting, focusing on data integration and 3D model building for future prospecting. Conducted by Geotech Ltd. from Sep 2021 to Jan 2022, the survey covered 174 km2, strategically positioning the property for continued exploration.

2022 Highlights

  • The survey extended old and discovered new electromagnetic (EM) conductors
  • Graphite-rich, conductive anomalies exceeding 10 km in contiguous strike length
    (assuming lithology matches with historical prospecting and drilling results)
  • A major conductor offset (“jog”) associated with a large fault, interpreted as part of the NS-trending Tabbernor fault system
  • Several significant conductor breaks/offsets with locally high eU ppm anomalies showing potential shears/fault ductile/brittle reactivation

Historical Reports

As of now, there are no official technical or mineral reports accessible for the North Wollaston project.

Historical Work

There is an abundance of historic uranium anomalies on the property, as well as the right geological structures/geophysical EM conductors to focus fluids and heat for depositing economic mineralization. There also appear to be the non-conductive gravity-low intersection zones that are ideal for concentrating mineralization. Coincidence with identified radioactive boulder trains, uranium in soil profiles, and uranium in drill core from historical drilling provide confirmation of these interpreted drill targets.

Historic exploration (before Appia time) for uranium over the North Wollaston property has occurred over three separate time frames; from 1970, 1978 to 1980 and 1983 to 1984. Appia’s work commenced with a small prospecting/sampling program in 2020, followed up with the 2022 geophysics.
