Alpha Minerals Intersects High Grade Mineralization with Visible Pitchblende in Core at Patterson Lake South

- November 5th, 2012

Alpha Minerals (TSXV:AMW), formerly ESO Uranium (TSXV:ESO) and its Joint Venture partner, Fission Energy reported that core drilling on the Patterson Lake South project in northern Saskatchewan intersected a 6.0 metre wide interval of high grade mineralization with visible massive pitchblende in veins (up to 21 centimetres wide), blebs and flecks.

Alpha Minerals (TSXV:AMW), formerly ESO Uranium (TSXV:ESO) and its Joint Venture partner, Fission Energy reported that core drilling on the Patterson Lake South project in northern Saskatchewan intersected a 6.0 metre wide interval of high grade mineralization with visible massive pitchblende in veins (up to 21 centimetres wide), blebs and flecks.

As quoted in the press release:

This high grade mineralization occurs at shallow depth in basement rocks in diamond drill hole PLS12-022. This hole is still in progress. The strongly radioactive interval occurs within the top 21.0 metres (69 feet) of basement core.

Alpha Minerals President Ben Ainsworth said:

This is the most significant discovery of new mineralization in the southwest Athabasca Basin area since Cluff Lake and Shea Creek. We have achieved this discovery with good science and the hard work of an exploration team and its contractors who pushed their limits to get here. The departments of the Provincial Government that regulate and support our work have been a key reason for our continued enthusiasm for this project in the mine-friendly jurisdiction of Saskatchewan.
