LABRADOR The final three holes of the infill program at the Jacques Lake uranium property in the Central Mineral Belt confirm the continuity of grade, says owner AURORA ENERGY RESOURCES of Vancouver. Highlights of the summer infill program include 0.28% U3O8 over 7.0 metres and 0.14% U3O8 over 8.0 metres in hole JL08-99; and 0.11% U3O8 over 4.0 metres and 0.05% U3O8 over 12.5 metres in hole JL08-100. The company drilled 14 holes totalling 6,205 metres this year.

Jacques Lake is one of six uranium deposits in the Central Mineral Belt in which Aurora has a 100% interest. The company says both the Jacques Lake deposit and its Michelin deposit remain open for expansion. Conventional open pit and underground mining and processing techniques will be considered.
