The General measurements show a strong relationship between uranium grade and density at the Arrow deposit, with higher grade samples being more dense than lower grade samples. Therefore, the uranium grade was used to estimate the density of samples without density measurements, this was done The mineral resource estimate referred to/summarized herein was prepared by RPA Inc. (“RPA”), an with a polynomial formula which is based on a regression fit. Densities were then interpolated into independentconsultingcompany. the block model to convert mineralized volumes to tonnage, and were also used to weight the uranium gradesinterpolatedintoeachblock.

All of the core collected is NQ sized (47.6 mm diameter). Mineralized intervals (defined as greater than 500 cps using handheld RS120 QualifiedPersons scintillometer) were split onsite in 0.5 m and 1.0 m intervals and transported by company personnel to SRC Geoanalytical Laboratories (an SCC ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 Accredited Facility) of Saskatoon for geochemical analysis and U3O8 assay. Most samples were analyzed using ICPMS (Inductively The Mineral Resource Estimate was completed by Mr. Mark Mathisen, C.P.G., Senior Geologist at RPA Coupled Plasma – Mass Spectrometry) for trace elements after partial and total digestions, plus ICP and Mr. David Ross, P.Geo., Director of Resource Estimation and Principal Geologist at RPA.

The interpretation of the threedimensional mineralized 31,2017andnewsreleasesissuedsubsequentthereto. lenses (domains) was created in Leapfrog software, directly from the drill hole data using a threshold of 0.05 U3O8. All wireframes were then exported to Vulcan software to ensure wireframes were “snapped”to the drill holesto ensurethatthe boundariesaccuratelycorrespondto selecteddrill hole intervals. Five high grade portions of the deposit were modelled in the A2 shear and two high grade portions of the deposit were modelled in the A3 shear. All higher grade wireframes were based on a threshold of 5.0 U3O8. The higher grade wireframes are located within and completely encompassed by a 0.05 grade shell within the A2 and A3 shears. Figure 1 is an isometric cross section of the wireframes. Drill hole assay data were composited to 1.0 m lengths within the wireframesandtaggedwiththecorrespondingdomaincode. Uranium (as U3O8) grades were interpolated with an ordinary kriging (OK) function for the A2 high grade and the 206 A2 enveloping domain. All other uranium grades (as U3O8) were interpolated using ID2 (inverse distance squared). All uranium grades were interpolated into a block model with blocks measuring 4 m (along strike) x 4 m (down dip) x 4 m (across strike), with subblocks to a minimumof1m x1m x1m. The grade shells were usedas hardboundaries,suchthat onlydrill hole data inside of any given domain could inform the blocks within that domain. Very high grade values were capped at 40 U3O8 within the A3 High Grade domain and grade caps ranged from 8 to 25 U3O8inthelower gradedomains.
