VANCOUVER – Fission Uranium (TSXV: FCU) hit mineralization in every one of the first 14 holes of its summer drill program at Patterson Lake South (PLS), continuing a drilling success story that has delineated shallow, high grade uranium along more than 1 km of strike in just 19 months.

PLS is on the southwest margin of the Athabasca Basin. Fission’s highly successful winter drill program at the site joined four zones together, added a new zone, and widened the known bodies. The end result was five zones of mineralization, with the largest, zone R780E, extending along 855 metres of northeast-southwest strike and across as much as 95 metres width.

The summer drill program looks set to grow the zones again. Two holes already extended the zone R780E to the north by 50 metres while several other holes highlighted the potential to grow the zone to the east.
