Alpha Exploration Inc. (TSXV:AEX) announced exploration plans for its three priority Athabasca Basin uranium projects over the Summer and Fall of 2014. Alpha has engaged Discovery Consultants for the management of its exploration programs.
As quoted in the press release:
An airborne gamma spectrometer survey is contracted for execution [at Carpenter Lake] by Goldak Airborne Surveys in June 2014, or as soon as drier ground conditions allow for better gamma radiation signal response. This airborne gamma survey has the capability to identify radioactive boulders similar to those found on the Patterson Lake South (“PLS”) Alpha Minerals Inc.–Fission Uranium Corp. joint venture in 2011, prior to the discovery of high-grade uranium by drilling in late 2012. A boulder prospecting program is planned to follow up on the results of the airborne gamma survey. A radon-in-soil survey is planned in 2014 for up-ice targets from radon-in-water and lake sediment uranium anomalies.
Alpha has received an exploration permit for ground geophysics and drilling at Hook Lake, and is planning exploration to better define drill targets for the winter of 2015 along the prospective conductor corridors.
