Vancouver, Canada, November 29th, 2012 – CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (TSX — CVV) (“CanAlaska” or the “Company”) has engaged a Canadian finance group on a non-exclusive basis to assist in seeking investors or partnerships for the exploration and development of the Company’s non-strategic Athabasca Region uranium projects and for potential corporate financing.
The Board of Directors of CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. intends to investigate the procurement of a joint venture partner or to otherwise determine whether a disposition can be negotiated in respect of the Corporation’s non-strategic uranium exploration interests primarily located in Northern Saskatchewan. While recognizing that the non-strategic uranium properties have represented a key element to the business strategy of CanAlaska in the past, the strong opportunities presented to us by our primary joint venture projects has encouraged us to consider the possible disposition of these non strategic uranium assets. The Corporation intends to continue to pursue its business plan to focus on the accelerated exploration of its primary projects of Cree East and West McArthur.
CanAlaska has already engaged KPMG Transaction Advisory Services Ltd. (KPMG TAS, Hong Kong) to exclusively assist in seeking China and India based investors to fund the exploration and development of the Company’s most active Athabasca Region uranium projects of Cree East and West McArthur.
President and CEO Peter Dasler commented “Management will evaluate strategic alternatives which may include, but are not limited to the sale of a material portion or all of the uranium exploration assets of the Corporation, or a farm-out or joint venture focused strictly on those assets. The non strategic assets include a land position of 660,000 hectares, with total expenditures of $34 million.”
