URANIUM: Fission hits high grades at both ends of mineralized trend

SASKATCHEWAN – Fission Uranium of Kelowna, BC, says the eight recent holes it drilled on either end of the 2.58-km mineralized trend at its Patterson Lake South uranium project returned more high grades. The property lies near the southwest rim of the Athabasca Basin.

Four holes were drilled on R840W zone on the west end, four on R1620E zone on the east end, and one in the gap between the R600W and R00E zones.

Fission highlighted the following results:

  • PLS16-500 (east end) – 43.0 metres total composite mineralization over a 60.5-metre interval (between 86.0 to 146.5 metres), including 8.48 metres of total composite >10,000 cps;
  • PLS16-498 (east end) – 31.0 metres total composite mineralization (between 73.0 to 104.0 metres), including 4.72 metres of total composite >10,000 cps; and
  • PLS16-495 (west end) – 66.0 metres total composite mineralization over a 80.0-metre interval (between 137.0 to 217.0 metres), including 3.00 metres of total composite >10,000 cps.
