CALGARY, Alberta, March 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Traction Uranium Corp. (CSE: TRAC) (OTC: TRCTF) (FRA: Z1K) (the “Company” or “Traction”) is pleased to announce that the 2024 winter drill program at the Hearty Bay project is underway with the arrival of the Boart Longyear drill crew on site. The program is designed to find the source of glacially dispersed uraniferous boulders and anomalous till geochemistry samples on Isle Brochet. The glacially dispersed material in combination with the recently completed gravity survey (see News Release of January 30, 2024) provides new, reliable targets for the program that were not tested in previous and historic drill programs.

A total of approximately 2,000 metres of drilling is planned using a Boart Longyear sonic rig that can recover and sample both overburden and bedrock. This is anticipated to trace anomalous overburden under the lake to the proposed source areas, which may be defined by one of the gravity low targets defined by this winter’s survey (see Figure 1). The program should be completed by the end of March, dependant on ice conditions.
