URANIUM: Fission lengthens PLS strike another 800 metres

SASKATCHEWAN – Fission Uranium of Kelowna, BC, has stretched the strike length by another 800 metres at the Patterson Lake South project in the Athabasca Basin. Based on the results of two holes in the R840W zone, one in the R780E zone, and one in the R1620E zone, the company says the known strike length is now 2.58 km.

Fission pointed out the importance of hole PLS16-479, a 45-metre step out to the west of the shallow, high grade R840W zone. It hit 41.0 metres of total composite mineralization, including 4.79 metres that registered >10,000 cps.

Also important is the R1620E zone at the east end of the PLS mineralized trend. In that area hole PLS16-481 cut 35.5 metres of total composite mineralization, including 0.17 metre of >10,000 cps.

Mineralization remains open on both ends of the measured strike length. More details are available at
