program at the East Preston uranium project, in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Project Location – Western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada:
Azincourt is conducting an extensive drill program for the winter of 2023, as last reported in a news release dated December 13th, 2022. TerraLogic Exploration Inc.

The priority will be to continue to evaluate the alteration zones and elevated uranium identified in the winter of 2022 with a focus on the G, K and H Zones.
C&C Road Maintenance will maintain the winter access road under the supervision of TerraLogic. The 73 km road allows access from Provincial Highway 955 along a portion of the Cree Lake Road then to the Snoop Lake camp site on the East Preston Project. Opening of the winter road to access the property and campsite is complete, with camp construction well underway. Discovery Mining Services is providing the camp and will support the camp operations. One drill has arrived and is mobilizing to camp along the winter road, with drilling anticipated to commence on the weekend. A second drill rig is expected on site next week. The drill rigs and crews are provided by QB Diamond Drilling Ltd. The program is expected to be complete by the end of March.
Road Access to East Preston Uranium Project:
The primary target area on the East Preston Project is the conductive corridors from the A-Zone through to the G-Zone (A-G Trend) and the K-Zone through to the H and Q-Zones (K-H-Q Trend). The selection of these trends is based on a compilation of results from the 2018 through 2020 ground-based EM and gravity surveys, property wide VTEM and magnetic surveys, and the 2019 through 2022 drill programs, the 2020 HLEM survey indicates multiple prospective conductors and structural complexity along these corridors.
