Alpha Minerals Inc. (TSXV:AMW) and JV partner Fission Uranium released results for the final ten lake holes of the summer program at their Patterson Lake South property in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan. Drill hole PLS13-109 intersected 99.5m total composite mineralization, including 6.87m total composite “off-scale”, and PLS13-097 hit 90.0m total composite mineralization, including 6.35m total composite “off-scale” in the R780E zone.
As quoted in the press release:
Drilling Highlights include:
PLS13-109 (line 750E)
- 99.5m total composite mineralization (within 105.5m – 334.5m)including:
- 6.87m total composite off-scale (>9999 cps) radioactivity
PLS13-097 (line 795E)
- 90.0m total composite mineralization (within 74.5m – 254.5m)including:
- 6.48m total composite off-scale (>9999 cps) radioactivity
PLS13-108 (line 810E)
- 103.5m total composite mineralization (within 80.5m – 234.5m), including:
- 3.25m total composite off-scale (>9999 cps) radioactivity
PLS13-090 and -103 (line 1155E)
- PLS mineralized strike length extended to 1.23km
It is very significant that none of the mineralized “zones” have been limited by drilling during the current or earlier programmes, and there is a possibility that mineralization has continuity between some or all of the “zones”. The size of the mineralizing system discovered at PLS thus far correlates well with Alpha’s regional context of the property.
