SASKATCHEWAN – Next door to the Patterson Lake South property is the Rook I project belonging to Vancouver-based NexGen Energy. That company has seven rigs working on the Arrow uranium deposit, and the results are promising.
High grade mineralization from hole AR-17-136c2 in the A3 shear at the Arrow deposit.
One of the more interesting finds was a dense accumulation of massive to semi-massive pitchblende, the strongest zone of mineralization encountered in the A3 shear to date. The discovery was made in step out scissor hole AR-17-136c2 where a total of 26.0 metres of total composite mineralization was cut including 6.7 metres of off-scale radioactivity that featured 5.3 metres of pitchblende that tested >61,000 cps. The area is open to the northeast.
Step-out holes drilled A2 and A4 shears also returned long intersections (18.5 to 58.0 metres) of total composite mineralization. Sections of the holes gave off-scale radioactivity readings from gaps or outside of the current resource estimate.
None of the drilling completed in 2017 was included in the updated 43-101 resource estimate released on March 6, 2017. That report is posted at www.NexGenEnergy.ca.
