URANIUM: NexGen drills seven significant holes at Rook I



SASKATCHEWAN – Vancouver-based NexGen Energy says all seven of the recent drill holes at its Rook I project adjacent to the Patterson Lake South property in the Athabasca Basin returned “significant and extensive uranium mineralization.”

The best hole, AR-15-59c2, intersected 36.5 metres grading 10.11% U3O8 including 3.5 metres at 52.33%. The hole was drilled in the A2 sub-zone that begins at less than 400 metres below surface and is open in all directions.

Hole -54c4 cut 9.5 metres at 6.93% U3O8, and hole -56c2 cut 32.0 metres at 1.58% U3O8. These holes were drilled across the A2 and A3 shears, both of which are also open in all directions.

Assays from additional holes are pending. Look for the results at NexGenEnergy.ca.
