SASKATCHEWAN – There seems no end to the promising drill results from the Patterson Lake South property in the Athabasca Basin. Joint venture partners Alpha Minerals of Vancouver and Fission Uranium of Kelowna, BC, report hitting the highest grade thickness to date – 54.5 metres at 9.08% U3O8, including a 21.5-metre section at 21.76%.
This core was drilled in hole PLS13-075 in the western part of R390E zone. The highest assay within the total length was 52.2% U3O8 over 0.5 metres at a depth of 74.0 to 74.5 metres. Intermittent narrower zones of weaker mineralization are also present from 118.0 to 177.5 metres below surface.
Drilling will continue. Please see either AlphaMinerals.ca or FissionUranium.com for more information.
Meanwhile, Alpha and Fission are making plans to consolidate the project under one owner (see The Northern Miner story, below).
