Kiplin Metals Retains Contractor for Exploration Program on the Cluff Lake Road (“CLR”) Uranium Project, Saskatchewan

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kiplin Metals Inc. (TSX-V: KIP) (the “Company” or “Kiplin”) has appointed Grander Exploration to carry out the upcoming phase of exploration at the Cluff Lake Road (“CLR”) uranium project. The project is located in northwestern Saskatchewan and is surrounded by F3 Uranium Corp.’s (formerly Fission 3.0) (“F3”) highly acclaimed Patterson Lake North (PLN) project.

The western boundary of the Company’s CLR property is shared with F3’s adjacent “North Conductor Complex”, which trends South-Southeast and extends onto the CLR property. Previous owner Fission Uranium Corp. (“FISSION”) and F3 have conducted multiple geophysical surveys, including (VTEM – helicopter-borne versatile time domain Electromagnetic), TEM (HT SQUID and Coil moving-loop TEM), and DC Resistivity, that overlapped the western flank of the CLR property. Grander Exploration and Company personnel are evaluating the most effective type of geophysical surveys to undertake on the CLR property. These surveys will correlate with F3’s previous surveys and will better define and extend the North Conductor Complex on the CLR property. To date, F3 has completed the only one drill hole (PLN22-29) in the area (Press Release November 28, 2022).

Following F3’s recent (November 2022) discovery of the high-grade JR Uranium Zone (located 15 kilometres South-southwest of the CLR property), the Company considers the similarities of the North Conductor Complex on the CLR property as a top exploration priority. F3’s North Conductor Complex consists of three parallel conductors that span a width of one kilometre. The Company believes that all three North Conductors identified by F3 may continue and extend onto the Company’s CLR property. Additionally, the Company has defined both parallel and cross-cutting magnetic lineaments on their CLR property.

The promising geology, alteration, and mineralization observed in the single drill hole (PLN22-029) in the area, along with the presence of multiple EM conductors and magnetic lineaments on the CLR property, make it highly prospective for the discovery of a uranium deposit hosted in the basement. The Company will provide updates on its work plans as soon as they become available.

The Company cautions the discoveries and observations on properties in proximity to the Company’s properties are not necessarily indicative of the presence of similar mineralization or geology on the Company’s properties.
