SASKATCHEWAN – Fission Uranium of Kelowna, BC, continues to connect high grade zones at its Patterson Lake South uranium project on the southwest edge of the Athabasca Basin. Of key importance is hole PLS14-177 on line 525E that has closed the gap between the R390E and R585E zones to create one much larger high grade zone, referred to as the R390E zone.
Three recent holes returned off-scale radioactivity readings (greater than 9999 cps). Hole 171 on line 690E intersected 97.5 metres of mineralization, including 15.25 metres off-scales. Hole 172 on line 825E cut 106.0 metres of mineralization including 7.14 metres of off-scale radioactivity. And hole 170 on line 915E cut 131.5 metres of mineralization including 5.85 metres of off-scale readings. Mineralization was encountered between 60 and 325 metres below the surface.
Fission continues drilling with the aim of proving that the various zones along the 1.78-km strike length are connected. Zone R780E and R945E were merged earlier this month. This year's 30,000-metre drill program and ground geophysics surveys at PLS will cost $12 million.
