SASKATCHEWAN – Fission Uranium Corp. of Kelowna, BC, has even more shallow, high grade intersections from winter drilling at its Patterson Lake South (PLS) project on the western edge of the Athabasca Basin. The property is located about 150 km north of La Roche.

Of the three holes drilled in the R780E zone, the best was PLS14-164. It returned 4.29% U3O8 over 91.0 metres beginning 97.0 metres below surface. High grade intersections were recorded as 6.5 metres at 14.69%, 7.0 metres at 21.20%, and 2.5 metres at 3.50%.

Another hole in the zone, PLS14-161, assayed 1.88% U3O8 over 3.5 metres, 2.48% over 4.5 metres and 7.95% over 3.0 metres, the last section including 18.10% U3O8 over 1.0 metre. The mineralization was encountered beginning 190.5 metres below surface.

Fission has traced uranium mineralization by core drilling over 2.24 km striking east-west at PLS. The company counts five zones; from west to east they are R600W, R00E, R780E, R1155E and R1620E. The former R390E, R585E and R945E zones have been merged into the R780E zone by successful winter 2014 drilling. Mineralization remains open along strike both to the western and eastern extents, added the company.
