As quoted in the press release:
Northern Uranium has commenced drill testing high-priority land based targets on the Maguire Lake focus area within the Northwest Manitoba property. A rotary air blast drill is being used to locate the bedrock source of the exceptionally anomalous radon results returned from the AlphaTrack survey. The radon results, combined with geophysical surveys including magnetic, electromagnetic, induced polarization and gravity surveys, and the results of extensive prospecting which has located boulders containing up to 66 per cent U3O8, have identified 39 high-priority land targets and seven high-priority and five medium-priority lake targets.
