URANIUM: NexGen drills seven significant holes at Rook I

SASKATCHEWAN – Vancouver-based NexGen Energy says all seven of the recent drill holes at its Rook I project adjacent to the Patterson Lake South property in the Athabasca Basin returned “significant and extensive uranium mineralization.”

The best hole, AR-15-59c2, intersected 36.5 metres grading 10.11% U3O8 including 3.5 metres at 52.33%. The hole was drilled in the A2 sub-zone that begins at less than 400 metres below surface and is open in all directions.

Hole -54c4 cut 9.5 metres at 6.93% U3O8, and hole -56c2 cut 32.0 metres at 1.58% U3O8. These holes were drilled across the A2 and A3 shears, both of which are also open in all directions.

Assays from additional holes are pending. Look for the results at
