URANIUM: Nothing but high grades at Fission’s PLS project

SASKATCHEWAN – There seems to be no stopping Fission Uranium as it continues to drill its Patterson Lake South property on the southwest edge of the Athabasca Basin. The Kelowna, BC-based company keeps hitting off scale grades as winter drilling continues.

All four recent holes intersected strong, wide intervals of mineralization. Hole PLS14-160 on line 540E cut 16.8 metres with total composite off scale (greater than 9999 cps) readings over an interval of 85.5 metres of mineralization. The results of this hole also narrows the gap between the R390E zone and R585# zone to 60 metres, said the company.

Fission also recorded its second best scintillation results at line 810. Hole PLS14-164 returned 30.08 metres of total composite off scale mineralization in 136.0 metres of mineralization at a shallow depth. The only better hole was PLS13-129 on line 600E that intersected 36.72 metres total composite off scales and later assayed at 38.49% U3O8 over 10.5 metres.

The PLS project is 100% owned and operated by Fission. The property is accessible by road with primary access from all weather Highway 955. Visit FissionUranium.com for more information.
