GTI Resources Ltd (ASX:GTR) has completed drilling at Section 36, part of the companies broader Henry Mountains uranium and vanadium project in Utah.

This campaign which consisted of drilling and logging 40 holes, as well as the completion of geophysical logging in relation to an additional 31 historical drill holes was completed on time and within budget.

This comes at an interesting time for GTR in terms of movements in the uranium price.

In mid-2020, the long-term uranium price pushed above US$35 per pound for the first time since 2016, and it has held around these levels, albeit slipping just below that mark in the last few (see data below from

This has brought smaller players in the sector under the spotlight with strong performances from the likes of Boss Energy Ltd (ASX: BOE) more than trebling in the last 12 months.

Consequently, as GTI progresses towards its goal of identifying a low-cost, rapid exploration project, the group could well undergo a meaningful share price rerating.

Targeting establishment of uranium mineral resource estimate

Pending results from this campaign, management is targeting further drilling towards development of a Uranium Mineral Resource for Section 36 and other areas within the Henry Mountain Uranium and Vanadium Project, a potentially market-moving development for the company.

Given that the group is exploring in an area where the mineralisation is relatively shallow and there is already evidence of uranium, GTR’s chances of success could be described as better than some of its peers where a line of sight to identifying potentially economical mineralisation isn’t as clear.

GTR has approximately 1500 hectares of landholdings in the Henry Mountains region of Utah, within Garfield and Wayne Counties.

The region forms part of the prolific Colorado Plateau uranium province which historically provided the most important uranium resources in the US.

Sandstone-hosted ores have been mined in the region since 1904 and the mining region has historically produced in excess of 17.5 million tonnes@ 2,400ppm U3O8 (92 million pounds U3O8) and 12,500 ppm V2O5 (482 million pounds V2O5).

With the knowledge of historical success and the benefit of data gathered in the past, GTI presents as one of the better emerging players in the sector.
