and excited to have the potential opportunity to work with a new partner to
further advance the central portion of the Preston Uranium Project. The
Preston Project is a strategic, district-scale property with robust
exploration upside potential throughout and is located near recent high grade
discoveries in the Patterson Lake area including NexGen's Arrow deposit,
Fission's Triple R deposit, and the Spitfire discovery. The signing of this
Term Sheet is a significant milestone for Skyharbour as the Company continues
to value-add its project base in the Athabasca Basin through focused mineral
exploration as well as the prospect generator model and associated strategic
partnerships."

million of total project consideration over six years, including up to
$7,300,000 of exploration work programs and $700,000 of cash payments.

to 70% Partner and 30% to be jointly split between Skyharbour and Clean
Commodities.

50%) of the balance of the Preston Uranium Project consisting of a further
68,720 hectares of minerals claims contiguous to the Preston Segment

The significant potential of the Western Athabasca Basin has been highlighted
by recent discoveries in the area by NexGen Energy Ltd. (Arrow), Fission
Uranium Corp. (Triple R) and a joint-venture consisting of Cameco
Corporation, AREVA Resources Canada Inc. and Purepoint Uranium Group Inc.
(Spitfire). Through its involvement in the Western Athabasca Syndicate and
the Preston Uranium Project, the Company has been involved in a large
regional exploration program in the relatively under-explored southwestern
side of the Athabasca Basin since 2013. In excess of $4.7 million in
expenditures on the Preston Uranium Project have been incurred to-date
including ground gravity, airborne and ground EM and magnetics, radon, soil,
silt, biogeochem, lake sediment, and geological mapping surveys, as well as
two exploratory drill programs. Fifteen high-priority drill target areas
associated with six prospective exploration corridors have been successfully
delineated through this methodical, multi-phased exploration initiative which
has culminated in an extensive, proprietary geological database for the
project area.

The Term Sheet was signed by all parties on December 14th, 2016 and represents
an arm's length transaction with no finder's fees being paid.

About Skyharbour Resources Ltd.:

Skyharbour holds an extensive portfolio of uranium and thorium exploration
projects in Canada's Athabasca Basin and is well-positioned to benefit from
improving uranium market fundamentals with five drill-ready projects. In July
2016, Skyharbour acquired an option from Denison Mines to acquire 100% of the
Moore Lake Uranium Project which is located 20 kilometres east of Denison's
Wheeler River project and 39 kilometres south of Cameco's McArthur River
mine. Moore Lake is an advanced stage uranium exploration property with over
$30 million in historical exploration, 370 diamond drill holes, and a
high-grade uranium zone known as the Maverick Zone with drill results
including 4.03% eU3O8 over 10 metres at a vertical depth of 265 metres. The
Company owns a 100% interest in the Falcon Point (formerly Way Lake) Uranium
Project on the eastern perimeter of the Basin which hosts an NI 43-101
inferred resource totaling 7.0 million pounds of U3O8 at 0.03% and 5.3
million pounds of ThO2 at 0.023%. The project also hosts a high-grade surface
showing with up to 68% U3O8 in grab samples from a massive pitchblende vein,
the source of which has yet to be discovered. Skyharbour also has a 50%
interest in the large, geologically prospective Preston Uranium Project
proximal to Fission Uranium's Triple R deposit as well as NexGen Energy's
Arrow deposit. The Company's 100% owned Mann Lake Uranium project on the east
side of the Basin is strategically located adjacent to the Mann Lake Joint
Venture operated by Cameco, where high-grade uranium mineralization was
recently discovered. Skyharbour's goal is to maximize shareholder value
through new mineral discoveries, committed long-term partnerships, and the
advancement of exploration projects in geopolitically favourable
jurisdictions.
