SASKATCHEWAN – Once again Fission Uranium of Kelowna, BC, is reporting high grades assays from drilling at its Patterson Lake South uranium project on the southwest rim of the Athabasca basin. The results underscore the growth of the R600W zone and point toward even better economics for the Triple R deposit, according to the company.
The best intersections assayed more than 21% U3O8. On line 555E hole PLS215-402 returned 12.5 metres at 10.9% U3O8 from 120.0 to 132.5 metres, including 4.5 metres at 21.53%, 1.0 metre at 28.35% and 1.0 metres at 10.0%. On line R600W, drilling highlights include 27.0 metres at 2.92% U3O8 from 99.0 to 126.0 metres, including 10.5 metres at 6.44%.
Mineralization of interest at PLS is located within and associated with a metasedimentary lithological corridor associated with a basement electromagnetic conductor. Fission has traced it over 2.33 km east-west in zones R600W, R00E, R780E and R1620E. Mineralization is open in both directions along strike.
