Tisdale Clean Energy Corp. has revealed phase 1 of its drill plans for the South Falcon East uranium project, where it hopes to confirm and expand mineralized zones. Read on to see what analysts have to say about this company's stock.

Tisdale Clean Energy Corp. (CSE: TCEC;OTCQB: TCEFF;FSE: T1KC) announced in a press release that it has confirmed plans to drill on its South Falcon East uranium project, located in the Athabasca basin, where it shares a 75% interest with its partner, Skyharbour Resources Ltd. (SYH:TSX.V; SYHBF:OTCQX; SC1P:FSE). The first phase of the project has a budget of CA$1.25 million. Tisdale stated that it had contracted Terralogic Exploration Inc. to conduct the drilling, and the program is based out of Skyharbour's McGowan Lake camp.

The company intends to begin 1,500m of drilling at the Fraser Lakes B Uranium Deposit soon, at the end of February 2024. The company hopes that drilling will confirm expected mineralization and that stepout drilling will expand mineralization estimates in preparation for an updated resource estimate. Drilling is also expected on anomalies in T-Bone Lake, which Tisdale stated may yield more mineralization.

Alex Klenman, Tisdale's CEO, commented, "The commencement of drilling is a milestone in terms of our ability to unlock the value contained at South Falcon. Right now, nobody is getting much credit for those pounds in the ground. This will begin to change as we drill and earn our interest in the project. The initial phase 1 plan allows us to meet the early obligations of the earn-in with Skyharbour. We are hopeful our valuation will grow as a result, therefore reducing the barrier to entry for institutional support and giving us the opportunity to implement larger drill programs moving forward through 2024 and beyond."

Support for Uranium Grows

As efforts continue around the world to reduce carbon emissions, many nations have shown renewed interest in nuclear energy. However, the increased demand for uranium has been complicated by the war in Ukraine, as Russia is one of the world's foremost producers of Uranium.

Technical Analyst Clive Maund rated the company as a "Strong Buy here for all timeframes." Maund noted that Tisdale's stock had reached highs of CA$26 in the past, demonstrating a capability to move upwards with significant momentum.

Japan recently classified uranium as a critical mineral in a move aimed at breaking its dependency on Russian uranium, reported on February 1, 2024. Support for nuclear power declined in Japan following the Fukushima disaster, but the country has been turning its nuclear reactors back on, with 16 pending restarts.

As a result of rapidly increasing demand, uranium prices have reached soaring highs of CA$106 per pound, according to Katusa Research. Previously, the report stated that apathy and reactor shutdowns seemed to be the trend, so contrarian investors stand to make huge profits from this turnaround.

A Strong Buy

On January 30, 2024, Technical Analyst Clive Maund rated the company as a "Strong Buy here for all timeframes." Maund noted that Tisdale's stock had reached highs of CA$26 in the past, demonstrating a capability to move upwards with significant momentum.

Maund commented, "It only remains for the price to break above resistance, marking the upper boundary of the entire base pattern — once it does that, a major new bull market will ‘officially' have begun."

Michael Ballanger of GGM Advisor Inc. reviewed the company positively on January 16, 2024, and commented that investing in Tisdale "takes me out of the CA$90 million market cap . . . and into a CA$2.9 million market cap in TCEC, a 30-times differential."
