URANIUM: Fission finds anomalous radioactivity during regional drilling at Forest Lake

SASKATCHEWAN – Fission Uranium Corp. of Kelowna, BC, has drilled anomalous radioactivity at Forest Lake, 7.28 km from the Triple R deposit at its Patterson Lake South property.

Hole PLS16-478 intersected up to 420 cps over 0.5m (237.5 to 238.0 metres) proximal to a significant 30 metre wide graphitic fault zone. The drill hole data and geological signatures in the area are of substantial interest and require follow up drilling, Fission thinks.

Also worthy of follow-up is hole PLS16-472 drilled in the gap between R600W zone and the Triple R deposit. There is reason to believe the mineralized graphitic corridor extends 20 metres further to the north.  Radioactivity measured over a length of 6.5 metres returned >1,200 cps.

A moderately anomalous area of radioactivity was intercepted by holes PLS16-005 andPLS16-006. Down hole gamma probes there registered approximately 1,200 cps. These holes were on line 1215W, 255 metres west of the shallow, high grade R840W zone, closer to the high grade boulder field 3 km to the west. This area, too, needs follow up drilling.

Ross McElroy, Fission president, COO, and chief geologist commented, “This is a successful end to the 2016 winter program and we are particularly pleased with our latest exploration drilling. Our resource drilling has been similarly successful and we now have three high-grade zones that have potential to be added to the Triple R resource.”
