VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - February 27, 2017) - Logan Resources Ltd. (
ALX has an 80% ownership interest with Logan having a 20% interest carried through feasibility. ALX is the operator of the Gorilla Lake property and as such, will fund 100% of the project-related costs. Logan Resources acquired the Gorilla Lake property in 2004 and in 2005 optioned the property to ESO Uranium Corp., a predecessor company to ALX.
The 2017 drilling program is planned to include four holes totaling approximately 1,000 metres. Work will be focused on the northern portion of the Property and will follow up on basement-hosted uranium mineralization that was previously intersected in historical holes CLU-01 (0.46% U3O8 over 1.5 m) and CLU-07 (0.17% U3O8 over 7.0 m), drilled in 2006. The uranium mineralization is associated with numerous conductors, as defined by airborne and ground electromagnetic ("EM") surveys and is coincident with a distinct northeast-trending gravity low highlighted from a ground gravity survey conducted in the winter of 2016.
In addition, drilling will test an airborne electromagnetic anomaly approximately 1,500 metres south of Gorilla Lake coincident within a distinct northeast-southwest striking gravity low.

About Gorilla Lake
The Gorilla Lake property consists of two contiguous mineral claims totaling 7,552 ha (18,661 acres) within the Carswell Impact Structure in the western portion of the Athabasca Basin, northern Saskatchewan. The Property is held 80% by ALX with Logan having a 20% carried interest. ALX is the operator of the Property and funds 100% of the costs associated with the Project.
Gorilla Lake is one of ALX's Cluff Lake group of three contiguous properties adjoining the former Cluff Lake mine site, where over 62 million pounds of U3O8 were extracted during a 22-year operating life through a combination of three open pit mines and four underground mines by predecessor companies of AREVA Resources Canada Inc.

Such factors include risks inherent in the exploration and development of mineral deposits, risks relating to variations in mineral resources, grade or recovery rates resulting from current exploration and development activities, risks relating to the ability to access infrastructure, risks relating to changes in gold, uranium and other commodity prices and the worldwide demand for and supply of gold, uranium and related products, risks related to increased competition in the market for gold, uranium and related products and in the mining industry generally, risks related to current global financial conditions, uncertainties inherent in the estimation of mineral resources, access and supply risks, reliance on key personnel, operational risks inherent in the conduct of mining activities, including the risk of accidents, labour disputes, increases in capital and operating costs and the risk of delays or increased costs that might be encountered during the development process, regulatory risks, including risks relating to the acquisition of the necessary licenses and permits, financing, capitalization and liquidity risks, including the risk that the financing necessary to fund the exploration and development activities on the Company's properties, or to acquire new properties, may not be available on satisfactory terms, or at all, risks related to disputes concerning property titles and interest, environmental risks and the additional risks identified in the "Risk Factors" section of the Company's reports and filings with applicable Canadian securities regulators.
