Blue Sky Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: BSK, FSE: MAL (WKN A0MKXP), "Blue Sky" or the "Company") provides an update to shareholders.
The last twelve months have been a formative year for Blue Sky. Our team made several new and exciting grass root uranium discoveries within a new uranium district that our Company identified in Patagonia, Argentina. These new discoveries notably include the surficial high grade values at the Ivana project in Rio Negro Province and the sandstone-type Sierra Colonia project in Chubut Province. Our technical accomplishments have been acknowledged by the leading International Atomic Energy Agency and also very recently attracted AREVA (ranked first in the global nuclear power industry) as our valued partner.
Blue Sky has achieved significant success in the field despite the significant global economic, political, and environmental challenges the Company faced in 2011, such as the stock market decline and the short to medium term uncertainty of the uranium industry related to events at the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan. Over the last several months while seeking additional funding sources it was highlighted that our share structure is a barrier to financing in the current market conditions. To address this issue, we announced a capital restructuring on January 27, 2012. This necessary step is required to make the Company more attractive to fund our continued growth.
Blue Sky is positioned for success in 2012 based on our impressive land package, our partnership with AREVA, and ongoing exploration throughout the year (see February 8th, 2012 press release) we are building a strong foundation for Blue Sky to be the leading uranium exploration company in Argentina. The Company has made significant progress and together with AREVA our goal is to define economic uranium ore bodies in Argentina and to enhance shareholder returns.
