Hole AR-16-75 170 metres southwest and along strike from the Arrow deposit intersected 39.5 metres of total mineralization in the A3 and A4 shears. This extends the strike length to 840 metres from 670 metres and confirms that the deposit is open in all directions.

NexGen has drilled nine holes all of which returned significant mineralization so far this winter. Three holes cut visible uranium mineralization in the A2 sub-zone. Hole AR-16-76c1 intersected 5.25 metres of >61,000 cps radioactivity, 3.5 metres of which was continuous. Drilling continues with six rigs.
