Delta Uranium reports results of geochemical analysis of boulder samples collected in the fall of 2009 on its C5 and C6 properties in the Wheeler River area of the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan.

A total of 140 samples of sandstone boulders were collected and sent for geochemical analysis from the C5 and C6 properties, both of which adjoin the Wheeler River project of Denison Mines, Cameco and JCU, about 6 kilometres north of the Phoenix uranium zone. A trend of elevated to locally anomalous uranium, boron, arsenic and lead values has been defined. This coincides with a conductive trend, as well as a “quartzite ridge”, both of which were defined by previous exploration carried out by Cameco in 2001.

Wayne Isaacs, Chairman and CEO of Delta Uranium says:

 “these initial results on our C5 and C6 properties are very encouraging. We are definitely in the hotbed of activity as far as the Wheeler River area is concerned which Denison recently describes as being “favourably located along strike from the MacArthur River deposit and is underlain by many of the same geological features as are present on that producing property”.
