VANCOUVER, March 23 /CNW/ - Blue Sky Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: BSK, WKN: AOMKXP) is pleased to announce results from a 1,223 meter mechanized trenching program on its ANIT project in Rio Negro Province, Argentina. Highlights include an interval that averaged 358 meters at 0.052% U(3)O(8) and 0.159% V(2)O(5) including 30 meters at 0.397% U(3)O(8) and 1.469% V(2)O(5). The weighted average of mineralized intervals from all three trenches was 847 meters grading 0.043% U(3)O(8) and 0.104% V(2)O(5). This trenching program is the first mechanized exploration program that has been conducted on the ANIT property.

At this early stage of exploration, Blue Sky interprets the ANIT anomaly to be a paleochannel- or surficial- type uranium occurrence similar in style to known deposits in Western Australia (Lake Maitland NI43-101 compliant inferred resource of 23.7 million lbs U(3)O(8) at an average grade of 0.033% U(3)O(8)), and in Namibia (Langer Heinrich deposit with Measured and Indicated Resources of 56.4Mt grading 0.06% containing 72.4 million pounds lbs of U(3)O(8) and Inferred Resources of 70.7Mt grading 0.06% containing 91.6 million lbs of U(3)O(8)).

Blue Sky's exploration team recently completed 3 excavator trenches totaling 1223 meters. The trenches were cut to a depth of approximately 2m and were designed to test the lateral extent and continuity of the mineralized paleo-channel that has been defined by pits along a minimum of 6km of strike length, within a larger 15km long radiometric uranium channel anomaly. Trench 1 was located in the centre of the ANIT West anomaly; Trench 3 was located in the centre of the ANIT Central anomaly and Trench 2 was located in the break between these two major anomalies.

The three trenches cut variable host sediments, including loose sands and gravels, clay sediments and gypsum layers. All major rock types are mineralized, and at this stage it does not appear that the host sediment lithology is a limiting factor for uranium vanadium mineralization. Each trench was sampled by a continuous horizontal channel sample with 1 or 2 meter composite samples. The channel samples were 10cm wide and targeted the higher gamma responses on the trench walls along the trench. The vertical component of mineralization will be determined in the coming drill program. The mineralized paleo-channel remains open to depth. Uranium - Vanadium mineralization appears to be open in width in Trench 1 and Trench 3.

Previously on the ANIT project the Company has identified a 6km long zone of near surface uranium-vanadium mineralization through a series of 83 hand-excavated pits (see September 10, 2009 news release). These pits had an average grade of 0.045% U(3)O(8) with an average thickness of the mineralized interval 1.7m and were dug within a 15km long uranium channel airborne radiometric anomaly. Hand auger drilling from the bottom of 41 pits successfully extended mineralization to a maximum depth of 5.8m below surface.

Of the 41 pits selected for augering, 29 had previously encountered mineralization greater than 1m at 0.005% (50 ppm) U. In 20 of these pits (34 samples) the mineralization was extended between 0.5 and 2.8m with average extension of 0.85m at 0.032 % U(3)O(8) (270 ppm U) and 0.046% V. Of 12 pits with no previous mineralization, uranium mineralized material was encountered in the last sample of 3 auger extensions. The target remains open to depth and along strike (see December 01, 2009 news release).

Analyses of samples reported herein were performed by Alex Stewart Assayers, in Mendoza, Argentina, an internationally recognized analytical services provider, by means of Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry following a four acid digestion (ICP-AR). Blank, duplicate, and standard samples were inserted into the sample sequence sent to the lab for quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) purposes. In total, 162 quality control samples (21 % of 742 total) were analyzed. Blue Sky detected no significant QA/QC issues during review of the data. Note that 10,000 ppm = 1% and 1% = 1.1792% U(3)O(8), 1% = 1.785% V(2)O(5).
