SASKATCHEWAN – NexGen Energy of Vancouver reports that the radioactivity results for 16 holes from the South Arrow discovery at the Rook I property are indicative of semi-massive to massive  pitchblende mineralization. Significant off-scale radioactivity (10,000 to 61,000 cps) was recorded.

NexGen has been conducting an aggressive step out drill program at South Arrow, and its work has extended the strike length and vertical extent of the high grade material to 240 metres and 185 metres, respectively. Two diamond drill rigs remain in operation at the site.

The South Arrow discovery lies about 400 metres south of the Arrow deposit.
