SASKATCHEWAN – Fission Uranium Corp. of Kelowna, BC, has released the final assays from last summer’s drilling program at Patterson Lake South in the Athabasca Basin. Of particular note, is hole PLS13-109 (line 750E) that returned 4.22% U3O8 over 8.0 metres, include a higher grade section of 11.10% U3O8 over 3.0 metres.

The final assays confirm broad mineralization, particularly at the western end of the discovery, said the company. The recently discovered R600W zone remains highly prospective, but so far has a defined strike length of 30 metres and a lateral grid north-south width of up to 20 metres. Merely five holes have been drilled in the R600W zone.

Fission is continuing the $12-million, 30,000-metre drill program and ground geophysics surveys at PLS. To view updated maps and files of the project, please go to FissionUranium.com.
