Vancouver, BC / CNW / January 12, 2022 / Blue Sky Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: BSK, FSE: MAL2; OTC: BKUCF), ("Blue Sky" or the "Company") announces that the lawsuit introduced before the Supreme Court of the Province of Rio Negro and a subsequent appeal filed before the same Court against the Company have been dismissed. The plaintiffs have not filed any further appeals, therefore the ruling is final. On September 16, 2021, the Company announced that its wholly owned Argentine subsidiary, Minera Cielo Azul S.A. (“MCA”), had received notice that it had been named in a lawsuit by anti-mining, environmental activists in Argentina against the Amarillo Grande project (the “Project”). The defendants in this action were MCA and the Government of the Province of Rio Negro.
As initially stated by the Company, the lawsuit proved to be without merit. The Company and MCA have obtained the relevant permits for all its exploration activities and operate in full compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
“We are pleased to have this matter behind us and give our full attention to our ongoing exploration programs in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations,” stated Nikolaos Cacos, President and CEO. “On behalf of the board, I thank our legal team and the support of our shareholders.”
Throughout this process, the Company’s exploration operations proceeded unimpeded. Blue Sky is continuing with its drilling plans, surface exploration initiatives, advanced metallurgical studies, and environmental baseline studies as previously announced.
