Traction Uranium Corp. (CSE: TRAC) (OTC: TRCTF), a dynamic Canadian exploration entity, has taken significant strides in advancing its presence within the mineral resources domain. Building on a previous press release dated May 17, 2023, the company has achieved a significant milestone through the completion of a Technical report, orchestrated by Aurora Geosciences Ltd., pertaining to the Key Lake South Property (KLS Property).
A focal point of this achievement is a meticulous diamond drilling program conducted across 12 holes, spanning a distance of 1,838 meters. This diligent endeavor targets select areas in the northeastern portion of the property. The comprehensive program involved in-depth gamma-ray surveys to discern gamma radiation and related radioactive material.
The Technical Report underscores notable findings by associating anomalous thorium (Th) intercepts with rare earth elements (REEs). Pegmatite-hosted, amphibolite-hosted, and structurally-hosted intercepts all contribute to the intricate mineralization picture. The northwestern property zone, particularly centered around hole KLS23-007, emerges as a prominent hub for Uranium and REE mineralization.
A strikingly promising observation is the alignment of KLS23-007 with the structural feature underlying the Key Lake deposits. This alignment extends to anomalous Th-REE mineralization detected southwestward in 2008.
The contact point between the Upper Wollaston Group orthogneiss and the underlying Lower Wollaston Group metapelites is pierced by hole KLS23-008, revealing a tantalizing interval of anomalous Thorium-REE values.
These compelling findings stimulate the possibility of uranium and Th-REE mineralization forming a noteworthy exploration prospect at Key Lake South. The Technical Report concludes with recommendations for a Phase 1 surface soil geochemical program, coupled with geological mapping in areas of exposed bedrock or rubblecrop.
In summary, Traction Uranium Corp. continues its trajectory of growth through calculated exploration efforts, with the Key Lake South Project serving as a focal point of advancement.

Trillion's President and CEO, Arthur Halleran, noted that the focus has shifted towards maximizing production from the six wells after successfully completing them.

A third-party provider has been engaged to provide recommendations for boosting production from these wells and guiding future operational procedures.
Regarding the operational update, Trillion has successfully drilled five directional wells and one re-completion at SASB. To further enhance production, Trillion has contracted a service provider to offer recommendations for implementing a slimhole ESP (electric submersible pump), power cables, pump control surface equipment, and electric power supply for West Akcakoca-2 and Akcakoca-3. The pump will be chosen by the end of August, followed by reperforation of South Akcakcoa-2 and Guluc-2.
Trillion's main objective is to elevate production from the existing six wells to match the production rates achieved from the eight legacy wells. The company believes that historical production data can serve as a valuable benchmark for predicting future production trends and outcomes. Trillion's focus on maximizing production aligns with its commitment to realizing its energy potential.
Financial and operational highlights for the second quarter of 2023 include an average gross gas production of 8.16 MMcf/d from the SASB gas field, a significant 42% increase from the first quarter of 2023. Trillion had achieved a combined average total daily production rate of 8.16 MMcf/d from five producing wells by the end of Q2 2023. The revenue for Q2 2023 was $5.8 million (C$7.8 million), representing a 288% increase over Q2 2022.
The average natural gas price during this time period was US$13.11, effective for all natural gas sales between April 1, 2023, and June 30, 2023. This represented a -39% decrease from the average of US$21.66 in Q1 2023.

This investment includes the costs of drilling wells, seismic reprocessing, and long-lead purchases. Additionally, the company successfully completed a convertible debenture financing, raising gross proceeds of C$15 million (US$11 million).
