Mr. Sean Hurd, President & CEO of Blue Sky Uranium Corp. updates the investment community with his comments on the activities of the company and the state of the recent stock markets overall. The letter included the following information:
Blue Sky Uranium Corp. (BSK-TSX.V) has been very active since its inception in 2006 and throughout 2007. During this time the Company has continued to build its asset base, both in term of projects and people and is well positioned for continued growth. While the stock markets overall, and uranium stocks in particular, have seen a significant downward correction over the summer months we strongly believe that the current trading price in Blue Sky's common shares does not reflect the growing value of the Company. The company has taken some major steps forward in Argentina, Saskatchewan and Colombia, with many exciting opportunities still ahead of it.
In Argentina, Blue Sky has aligned itself with Argentina Uranium Corp., gaining exclusive access to over 4,000 square kilometres of uranium projects that have been staked by Dr. Jorge Berrizzo. Dr. Berizzo has 22 years of experience in uranium exploration in Argentina, much of it as senior exploration geologist for the Argentinean National Atomic Energy Commission ("CNEA"). He played a leading role in the discovery of the Cerro Solo uranium deposit in Chubut province, Argentina.
Dr. Berrizzo and his team have made what is believed to be the first uranium discovery in Rio Negro province, Argentina, on the Santa Barbara property that Blue Sky is exploring to earn a 75% interest. Blue Sky has completed a Phase I surface exploration program that followed up on visible uranium mineralization discovered at Santa Barbara and the results will be released within the next few weeks. Blue Sky is planning to commence a second surface program as soon as possible to further expand the known areas of uranium mineralization and to evaluate drill targets.
In Saskatchewan, exploration has focused on identifying drill targets on the Eagle Lake/Karin Lake projects that cover 69,000 hectares. The properties are located approximately 35 km east of Cameco's Key Lake mining operation in north-central Saskatchewan, Canada. Blue Sky is earning a 60% interest in these projects from Eagle Plains Resources. Exploration activity at Eagle and Karin Lakes has included both surface and airborne geophysical exploration programs. Results will be released shortly and drilling is planned for Q1-08.
In Colombia, Blue Sky has made a strategic entry into the Country with the acquisition of a 100% interest in two uranium prospects totaling 15,000 hectares. Colombia has been improving at a steady pace and this has created great opportunities for uranium exploration and is a mineral rich country that remains very under explored. Management has a strong network of contacts in Colombia through the Company's relationship with the Grosso Group, and it is this network that continues to generate many new opportunities.
The Company's Team has been growing with the welcomed addition of Dr. Hernan Celorrio in June 2007 to the Board of Directors. Dr. Celorrio was the former President of Barrick Explorations Argentina during the period December 1999 to March 2006. In the Argentine mining industry Dr. Celorrio is a nationally recognized figure and he is an outstanding addition to our team, which now includes Dr. Ron McMillan, a prominent uranium geologist with worldwide exposure to uranium deposits and exploration over the past 25 years. In addition Mr. David Rhys has joined Blue Sky as Senior Consulting Geologist and has extensive work experience on uranium deposits in the Athabaska basin of Saskatchewan working for Cameco and UEX Corporation.
