URANIUM: Fission hits high grades again – 13.56% – at PLS

SASKATCHEWAN – Fission Uranium of Kelowna, BC, is wasting no time in posting the highest grade so far from the R1620E zone – 13.56% U3O8 over 9.5 metres – at its Patterson Lake South property in the Athabasca Basin.  High grades were also cut in the R840W zone.

Fission says the wide, high grade mineralization drilled at both zones highlights the strength and potential of the 2.63-km mineralized trend, the longest footprint in the region.

Here are the relevant assay results:

  • In the R1620E zone (high grade, shallow zone at eastern end of mineralized trend), hole PLS16-500 returned 0 metres grading 5.0% U3O8including 9.5 metres at 13.56%. Hole PLS16-498 returned 26.5 metres grading 3.60% U3O8 including 9.0 metres at 8.56% .
  • In the R840W zone (high grade, shallow land based zone recently merged with R600W zone) hole PLS16-495 returned 10 metres grading 3.74% U3O8 including 1.0 metre at 92% and 4.0 metres at 5.92% U3O.
