Kivalliq Acquires Genesis Property in Northeastern Saskatchewan, Canada
VANCOUVER, Jan. 13, 2014 /CNW/ - Kivalliq Energy Corporation ("Kivalliq",
TSX-V: KIV) today announced that it has staked 36 mineral claims totalling
362,789 acres (146,815 hectares), northeast of Saskatchewan'sAthabasca Basin
and along the prospective Western Wollaston Tectonic Domain. Kivalliq's new,
100% owned "Genesis Property" commences 25 kilometres northeast of the Eagle
Point uranium mine and Rabbit Lake mill operated by Cameco Corporation and
extends 90 kilometres to the northeast along this prospective geological and
structural domain to the Manitoba border. The Genesis Property covers 28
documented historic uranium showings and several uraniferous boulder trains.
Saskatchewan is one of the world's most prolific uranium districts, having
both established infrastructure and a politically supported uranium mining
industry. The Genesis Property falls within Western Wollaston Domain and the
Wollaston-Mudjatik Transition Zone. These zones host the majority of known
Canadian uranium deposits and all of Canada's operating uranium mines, which
currently account for 15% of the world's annual supply of uranium.
"The current uranium spot pricing environment continues to present excellent
opportunities to increase Kivalliq's exposure to, and ownership of, high
quality uranium projects," stated Kivalliq's CEO, Jim Paterson. "Our goal is
to complement Kivalliq's existing resource base at Angilak and exploration
potential at Baker Basin, by employing our team's considerable northern
exploration and Saskatchewan uranium experience to make significant
discoveries at the Genesis Property."
The Western Wollaston and the Wollaston-Mudjatik Transition Domains are
high-strain zones within reworked Archean and Paleoproterozoic rocks of the
Hearne Subprovince. This lithostuctural trend hosts the majority of basement
and unconformity type uranium deposits known in the Athabasca Basin. The trend
is marked by a regional magnetic low along the boundary between primarily
granitoid rocks of the Mudjatik Domain to the west, and gneissic metasediments
of the Wollaston Domain to the east.
Where the Western Wollaston Domain and the Wollaston-Mudjatik Transition Zone
extend to the northeast of the Athabasca Basin, Kivalliq identified a highly
favourable and relatively underexplored area based on a range of criteria.
Specific Genesis Property claim locations were selected based on a compilation
of publicly available regional and property-scale geological, geophysical and
geochemical data sets from government sources and previous exploration groups.
Numerous targets recommended for follow-up by previous explorers remain

Kivalliq exploration efforts will focus on near surface, basement-hosted,
structurally controlled uranium targets analogous to the Millennium,
Roughrider, Eagle Point and Rabbit Lake deposits. Data integration and
interpretation is underway to prioritize targets and refine budgets for future
