SASKATCHEWAN FISSION ENERGY of Kelowna, B.C., and its partner, GREAT BEAR URANIUM of Vancouver announced promising results from their winter drill program at Duddridge Lake, 80 km northwest of La Ronge. Five holes drilled this year returned 0.08% U3O8 over 4.5 metres, 0.01% over 3.0 metres, 0.05% over 1.5 metres, 0.08% over11.5 metres, and 0.06% over 2.5 metres. The mineralized zone was encountered between 50 and 150 metres below surface.
The Duddridge Lake property lies near the eastern side of the Wollaston Domain, which is generally composed of siliciclastic metasediments and minor metavolcanics with inliers of Archean granitoids to the east. Historic drilling outlined a uranium deposit striking 1,140 metres and dipping 60 to the northwest. A 43-101 report commissioned last year by Fission Energy (www.Fission-Energy.com) identified 227,800 tonnes with an average grade of 0.10% U3O8 in the inferred category.
Great Bear is earning a 60% interest in the Duddridge Lake project. Visit the website at www.GreatBearUranium.com.
