    $10 million in previous exploration across six, near-surface target
    areas on the large property 
--  Geological and geochemical features show distinct similarities to high
    grade, basement-hosted deposits in Athabasca Basin such as Eagle Point,
    Millennium and Roughrider 
--  Exploration potential of 6 km by 7 km Fraser Lakes target area
    considered exceptional, including resource expansion potential along
    strike and at depth at Zone B deposit 
--  The Hook Lake target area at north end of Way Lake property yielded high
    grade uranium grab samples of up to 48% U3O8 in vein exposed at surface;
    previous operators unable to definitively explain and locate the source 
--  Extensive geological database for project area; recommended future work
    programs include defining additional resources at Fraser Lakes Zone B
    uranium deposit as well as exploratory drilling on other high-potential
    targets throughout property 
--  At Yurchison Lake Project, prospecting near old trenches returned
    significant uranium (0.09% to 0.30% U3O8) and molybdenum (2,500 ppm to
    6,400 ppm) mineralization in outcrop and float samples 
--  Two holes drilled beneath historic trenches returned highly anomalous
    molybdenum values of up to 3,750 ppm and anomalous uranium values of up
    to 240 ppm 

Jordan Trimble, President and CEO of Skyharbour, stated: "The acquisition of 100% interests in the sizeable Way Lake and Yurchison Lake Projects is a milestone for the Company as it significantly enhances Skyharbour's portfolio of Athabasca uranium projects. The current uranium market has presented excellent opportunities for Skyharbour to increase its ownership, at attractive valuations, in high-quality uranium projects in the Basin with the objective of optimizing discovery potential and capitalizing on a future uranium market turnaround. The more advanced-stage Way Lake Uranium Project boasts a near surface, inferred resource of 7 million pounds U3O8 open along strike and at depth. Elsewhere on the property, the Hook Lake target area hosts high grade uranium mineralization with historic grab samples returning up to 48% U3O8 in a massive pitchblende vein, the origin of which has yet to be discovered. Skyharbour's management believes this is a highly accretive deal for the Company's shareholders as we add a resource to the asset portfolio, bolster our exposure to the east side of the Basin, and add projects with robust exploration upside potential to complement our Syndicate and Mann Lake projects."

Way Lake Uranium Project:

The Way Lake Uranium Project is comprised of 21 contiguous claims totaling 90,892 hectares located 55 kilometres east of the Key Lake mine in northern Saskatchewan. Uranium mineralization discovered to date at Way Lake is shallow and is hosted in two geological settings with the northern half of the property characterized by structurally controlled uranium mineralization (Hook Lake, West Way and Nob Hill zones), whereas the southern half hosts classic Athabasca-style basement mineralization associated with well-developed EM conductors (EWA, Walker and Fraser Lakes zones). Drilling to date on the Way Lake Project totals over 20,000 metres in 105 holes. Over $10 million has been invested in exploration consisting of airborne and ground geophysics, multi-phased diamond drill campaigns, detailed geochemical sampling and surveys, and ground-based prospecting culminating in an extensive geological database for the project area.

Discovered in 2008, Zone B is located within the broader 6 kilometre by 7 kilometre Fraser Lakes target area where multiple mineralized zones have been discovered along a 65 kilometre long, folded EM conductor system comprised of Wollaston Group graphitic pelitic gneisses and uraniferous granitic pegmatites. Diamond drilling consisting of 25 holes totaling 4,603 metres has defined a zone of moderately dipping, multiple-stacked uranium and thorium mineralized horizons down to 175 metres that is open to the southwest and east-northeast as well as at depth. The style of uranium mineralization associated with intrusive rocks is commonly referred to as "Rossing type" mineralization named after the largest, longest-running open pit uranium mine in the world, the Rossing Mine operated by Rio Tinto in Namibia.

JNR Resources Inc., a company acquired by Denison in 2013, announced an initial mineral resource estimate in 2012 for the Fraser Lakes Zone B of 6,960,681 pounds U3O8 inferred at an average grade of 0.03% U3O8 and 5,339,219 pounds ThO2 inferred at an average grade of 0.023% ThO2 within 10,354,926 tonnes using a cutoff grade of 0.01% U3O8. The independent NI 43-101 technical report supporting this mineral resource estimate was filed on SEDAR on September 26, 2012 by JNR Resources. Independent qualified persons, Dr. Allan Armitage, P.Geo., and Alan Sexton, M.Sc., P.Geo., of GeoVector Management Inc., are responsible for the contents of the technical report and comments related to the resource estimate and its parameters.

The exploration potential of the Fraser Lakes target area is considered exceptional, including the resource expansion potential of the current deposit at Zone B. Geological and geochemical features show distinct similarities to high-grade, basement-hosted deposits in the Athabasca Basin such as Eagle Point, Millennium, P-Patch and Roughrider.

On the northern side of the Way Lake property at the Hook Lake target, high grade uranium mineralization has been discovered with up to 48% U3O8 in historic grab samples. The massive pitchblende vein containing the high grade uranium mineralization is hosted in basement intrusive rocks exposed at surface. The mineralization has similarities to the Eagle Point uranium deposit being structurally-controlled, vein-type, high grade, and likely part of the feeder system to more typical high grade, unconformity uranium deposits. Previous operators have been unable to definitively explain and locate the source of the high grade uranium in the massive pitchblende vein that assayed up to 48% U3O8.

At the EWA target located on the southern portion of the Way Lake property, up to 0.492% U3O8 and 1,300 ppm lead were obtained from grab samples. Eight holes drilled in 2008 intersected variably radioactive granitic pegmatite dykes including an intercept of 0.082% U3O8 over 6.5 metres. The Nob Hill target in the central part of the property hosts vein-type uranium mineralization and includes a drill intercept of 0.018% U3O8 over 5.0 metres. The Walker Lake, Walker South and Walker River showings occur along a conductive trend that covers some 60 kilometres of structurally displaced EM conductors in the southwest portion of the property. Historic reconnaissance drilling has intersected strongly clay and/or chlorite altered, sheared and faulted graphitic pelites containing anomalous uranium, copper, nickel, zinc and molybdenum. The West Way target at the northern end of the property consists of vein-hosted uranium mineralization and includes grab samples that returned up to 0.492% U3O8.

Yurchison Lake Uranium Project:

The 12,660 hectare Yurchison Lake property consisting of four claim blocks is located 70 kilometres southeast of the McArthur River uranium mine. Previous prospecting and geological mapping in and near old trenches returned significant uranium (0.09% to 0.30% U3O8) and molybdenum (2,500 ppm to 6,400 ppm) mineralization in both outcrop and float samples. In 2008, two holes drilled beneath the historic trenches returned highly anomalous molybdenum values of up to 3,750 ppm and anomalous uranium values of up to 240 ppm. The property boasts strong discovery potential for both basement hosted uranium mineralization as well as copper, zinc and molybdenum mineralization.
