SASKATCHEWAN – Once again drilling at Patterson Lake South on the southwest rim of the Athabasca Basin is returning excellent results for Fission Uranium Corp
. of Kelowna, BC. Assays from the final 17 holes of the summer drill program have been received and include 26.03% U3
over 6.0 metres and 11.02% over 25.5 metres from the R600W zone.
The company says that the R600W mineralization is not yet included in the 43-101 report for the Triple R deposit. Therefore, the very high grade results point toward potential for considerable resource expansion. Drilling will continue this winter.
Fission has drilled uranium mineralization over a strike length of 2.33 km east-west in four separate zones. The Triple R deposit, for which a preliminary economic assessment was completed this fall, will support open pit mining of 1.56 million tonnes averaging 2.21% U3
. The proposed underground mine would recover 3.25 million tonnes at 0.42% U3
