Appia Engages SGS to complete a Mineral Resource Estimate on Target IV and NI 43-101 Technical Report at PCH REE Project

Toronto, Ontario – November 7th, 2023 - Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corp. (the “Company” or “Appia”) (CSE: API) (OTCQX: APAAF) (Germany: “A0I0.F”, “A0I0.MU”, “A0I0.BE”) is pleased to announce that it has engaged SGS Geological Services (SGS) to prepare a comprehensive NI 43-101 technical report on Appia’s PCH Rare Earths Ionic Clay Project including a Maiden Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) on target IV.

This marks a significant step forward in the exploration and potential development of the PCH Project. PCH is located approximately 30 km (about 18.64 mi) from Iporá, Goya's State Brazil and is situated within a region well?known for its significant mineral exploration potential, mining activity, and well-developed infrastructure.?

Appia's ongoing exploration program is characterized by a comprehensive approach, incorporating a range of methodologies such as Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling, extensive auger sampling, diamond drilling, and LiDAR surveying. Recent assays have confirmed mineralization from surface as reported in the press release dated October 31, 2023.

The SGS team brings to the table a wealth of experience in the mineral and mining industry, particularly in precious metals, base metals, and critical minerals, including rare earths. Their expertise in metallurgy and process development remains unmatched worldwide, making them an ideal candidate for Appia in this endeavor.?

The primary objective is to complete a maiden MRE on Target IV and an NI 43-101 Technical Report in support of the MRE, based on the comprehensive data provided by Appia. SGS is slated to commence their work promptly upon the receipt of the database, with the anticipated delivery of results expected within a 10-to-12-week timeframe from onset of the work. SGS is expected to receive the database in the coming weeks.

"Appia's collaboration with SGS marks an important milestone for the PCH Project," said Stephen Burega, President of Appia. "We are confident that SGS's expertise will bring us one step closer to realizing the full potential of the PCH Project.”

Appia will provide timely updates to shareholders and the general public as assay results are received from the remaining 129 RC, 106 Auger drill holes, and 1 diamond drill hole.

Appia also wished to announce that it has engaged Outside The Box Capital Inc. (“OTB Capital”) to perform market awareness and marketing services for an initial term of one year. The nature of the services to be provided by OTB Capital include, but are not limited to, marketing services to communicate to the financial community information about the Company.
