SASKATCHEWAN – The radioactivity results are in from the last two holes drilled at the Arrow zone, and Vancouver’s NexGen Energy is pleased. These were step out holes 15 metres from hole 30. Hole 31 intersected a  total composite mineralization of 107.9 metres within a 460.35-metre section. Hole 32 returned 123.90 metres total composite mineralization, including 10.13 metres of off-scale radioactivity (>10,000 cps), in a 343.45-metre section.

The Arrow zone has been drilled over a strike length of 515 metres, an width of 215 metres, and a depth of 650 metres. It remains open in all directions and drilling next winter will continue to delineate and expand the zone.

The Arrow zone is part of NexGen’s Rook 1 uranium property that is adjacent to the Patterson Lake South project belonging to Fission Uranium. Both lie along the southwestern edge of the Athabasca Basin.
