Anomaly at ESO Uranium’s Patterson Lake South JV Suggests Large Mineralization Previously Active in the Area
ESO Uranium Corp. (TSXV:ESO) announced results from the winter drilling program at Patterson Lake: anomaly suggests a large mineralized system has been active in the area.
As quoted in the press release:
- Strongly anomalous uranium (30-873 ppm U) along 823 m of graphitic EM conductor.
- Located approximately 3.5 km up ice from high grade uranium boulder field.
- Geochemical data show the anomalous pathfinder elements boron, cobalt, nickel, molybdenum, vanadium and lead associated with the higher uranium values.
- Clay, chlorite and haematite alteration associated with anomalous uranium zones.
This combination of the “pathfinder elements”, those elements typically found associated in and around the high grade Athabasca uranium deposits, together with the alteration suggests a large mineralized system has been active in the area. The location of a mineralized system up-ice from the boulder field also suggests proximity to a source area for the boulders.
