NexGen Energy Ltd. (TSXV:NXE) extended the mineralized strike length of the Arrow Discovery at Rook I in the Athabasca Basin, from 215 m at the end of the winter 2014 drill program, to 470 m and remains open in all directions.
As quoted in the press release:
Increased mineralized strike length of the Arrow Discovery from 215 m at the end of the winter 2014 drill program to presently 470 m and remains open in all directions.
RK-14-37 intersected 78.05 m total composite mineralization including 8.1 m off-scale radioactivity (>10,000 cps) within a 227.8 m section (378.0 to 605.8 m).
RK-14-31 intersected 125.8 m total composite mineralization including 0.6 m off-scale radioactivity (>10,000 cps) within a 430.7 m section (221.4 to 652.1 m).
All six initial drill holes from the summer 2014 program at the Arrow Discovery have intersected visible uranium mineralization.
Strong dravite clay alteration halo identified more than 200 m away from known uranium mineralization, which indicates robust strength of mineralizing system at Arrow.
NexGen Energy CEO, Leigh Curyer, said
The Arrow Discovery is developing into a significant find based on all 14 drill holes hitting mineralization, and it is apparent that there is much left to be delineated in all directions. My hat goes off to the technical team in the field for their efficient and successful results. Our initial drilling at Arrow has identified potentially high impact drill targets that will be tested shortly.
