NexGen Energy Ltd. (TSXV:NXE) received the permits for drilling at Arrow and the land based geophysical targets located in the western section of Rook I, in the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan. There are 3 rigs on-site and will commence drilling soon.
As quoted in the press release:
In only 8 holes, the Arrow mineralized zone has extended to approximately 215m along a NE-SW strike zone and is open in all directions and at depth. Secondly, a heli-rig will focus on testing the identified geophysical targets in the western section of Rook I covering the Dirksen Trend, a known uranium mineralized fault zone.
NexGen Energy CEO, Leigh Curyer, said:
The team has been eagerly awaiting the re-commencement of drilling at Arrow. The results at the end of the winter drilling program at Arrow are extremely encouraging with respect to the system hosting substantial basement mineralization at shallow depth. Assays from the winter program at Arrow are expected shortly. Further, the team is looking forward to testing the other land based identified geophysical targets on the highly prospective Rook I project.
