Senator Minerals Granted Exploration Permit for PNE Uranium Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 19, 2017) - Senator Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SNR)(OTC PINK:SNRAF)(FRANKFURT:T1KA) ("Senator" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has been granted an exploration permit for Phase 1 work at its Patterson North East (PNE) uranium project, located in the western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan. The first phase of the program will be overseen by Canexplor Management Ltd. and is to consist of a high-resolution ground gravity program, designed to define gravity-low anomalies, which have been pivotal in targeting and discovering mineral deposits in the western Athabasca Region.

The Company also intends to complete a radon gas survey to confirm the presence of this uranium decay product. The survey grid is to consist of up to 20 line kilometers, with an investigation depth of up to 550 meters. The results will be incorporated into the current exploration database, which includes DC resistivity and airborne magnetics, in order to define Phase 2 drill targets. The survey is expected to commence in the near term.
