URANIUM: Fission hits 128 metres with multiple high grade intervals west of R780E at PLS

SASKATCHEWAN – Fission Uranium of Kelowna, B.C., has drilled a new zone 2.3 km west of the R780E zone at its Patterson Lake South project on the south rim of the Athabasca Basin. Results of four holes on the new R1515W zone point to the widest, highest grade mineralization outside the Triple R deposit.

Of particular note is hole PLS17-564. It intersected 128.0 metres of total composite mineralization, including intervals such as 7.0 metres at 6.90% uranium oxide in 14.50 metres at 3.39% U3O8 and 7.0 metres at 6.36% U3O8 in 10.50 metres at 4.35% U3O8. There was also a 60-metre interval that graded 0.40% U3O8.

Key intervals were also pulled from hole PLS17-562. This hole returned 27.5 metres at 0.60% U3O8, including 9.0 metres at 1.29% U3O8; 14.50 metres at 1.73% U3O8, including 3.5 metres at 3.01% U3O8, and 1.5 metres at 5.56% U3O8; and 7.50 metres at 1.02% U3O8, including 1.0 metre at 5.10% U3O8.

Mineralization remains open along strike in both the western and eastern directions, says Fission.
