Blue Sky Expands High Grade Uranium Mineralization at the Ivana Project

Mar 13, 2012

Blue Sky Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: BSK, FSE: MAL (WKN A0MKXP), "Blue Sky" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the discovery of additional high grade mineralization on its Ivana property located in the Rio Negro province, Argentina (press release of October 26, 2011). The highlight from the discovery is an interval of 1.40% U3O8 over 1.10 m including 2.74% U3O8 over 0.5 m (see photograph at http://www.blueskyuranium.com/site/assets/files/5909/calicata-37.jpg).

Remote sensing and geological mapping interpretation shows a paleo-channel cut into the granitic basement. The mineralized pits are located within this paleochannel in areas of very high surface radiometric anomalies (+200 counts per second using a Georadis RS 125 scintillometer) that cover a large area of approximately 3 km2. High grade uranium mineralization is found in the form of carnotite hosted in unconsolidated and well sorted reddish and yellowish sands covered by calcrete, and extends into the weathered granitic and rhyolitic basement.

The mineralization style and geological setting at Ivana are similar to BHP Billiton's Yeelirrie uranium deposit in Western Australia*. Ivana, as with Yeelirrie, are both surficial uranium deposits that are situated in a paleo-channel directly overlying granitic basement rocks.

The highlights in the table below are from 4 hand pits excavated up to 1.8 m deep. Mineralization is open in all directions and at depth.

Analyses of samples reported herein were performed by Alex Stewart Assayers, in Mendoza, Argentina, an internationally recognized analytical services provider, by means of a four acid digestion followed by a reading with Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICP-OES). Blank, duplicate, and standard samples were inserted into the sample for quality assurance/quality control ("QA/QC") purposes. Blue Sky detected no significant QA/QC issues during review of the data.

This press release was reviewed by Normand Champigny, Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Field work was carried out by Blue Sky's exploration team under the supervision of Bruce A. Smith, MAusIMM, Chartered Professional Geologist, and Qualified Person.

* World Nuclear Association web site presents a figure of resource estimate of 52,500 tonnes contained U3O8 (174 million lbs.) @ 0.15% U3O8 in the Indicated category.
