SASKATCHEWAN – Fission Uranium of Kelowna, BC, has the results of nine step-out angled drill holes from the Patterson Lake South project near the southwest rim of the Athabasca Basin. Drilling has expanded the R780E zone significantly – 40 metres too the north, 30 metres along strike to the east, and 50 metres up-dip vertically.

” We are extremely pleased to be seeing such strong, consistent growth as we continue our step out drilling from the Triple R deposit’s largest, highest grade zone,” said Fission president, COO and chief geologist Ross McElroy.

Three holes are of particular interest. Hole PLS14-312 returned 73.5 metres total composite mineralization over a 220.5 metre section including 2.4 metres of greater than 10,000 cps radioactivity. Hole PLS15-324 returned 46.5 total composite mineralization over a 204.0 metre section including 1.6 metres of greater than 10,000 cps. Hole PLS15-311 returned 49.9 metres total composite mineralization over a 73.4 metre section including 1.06 metres greater than 10,000 cps. The results of uranium oxide assay results will be released later.

The R780E zone is part of the Triple R deposit the company provided maiden resource numbers for last month.
