SASKATCHEWAN – The ongoing ground gravity survey has identified six high priority drill targets at the Rook I uranium property on the southwest edge of the Athabasca Basin. Owner NexGen Energy of Vancouver is calling the target region the Fury area and it is located about 13.5 km to the southeast of the Arrow zone.

The company says all six of the new targets have similar geophysical features that led to the discovery of the Arrow zone a year ago. Plans are being made for drilling 4,500 metres at Fury this winter. NexGen points out that Rook I shares geophysical similarities with the nearby PLS project belonging to Fission Uranium.
