CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (TSXV:CVV)  reports the beginning of a property-wide deep penetrating airborne ZTEM survey on West McArthur project.

The JV initiated the survey after reviewing data available from a test survey across the Grid 1 area as well as survey data from other properties indicating the ability of the ZTEM system to resolve deep conductive targets better than existing VTEM or MEGATEM surveys.

President Peter Dasler of CanAlaska says:

“We have been successful in locating hydrothermally-altered zones within three Grids on the West McArthur Property, based on initial MegaTEM and, later, VTEM surveys. The aim of the JV partners is to systematically identify other similar targets and build exploration programs around them, but also to sequentially develop a new target zone each year. In 2010, the JV concentrated on the Grid 1 target and encountered success in identifying uranium mineralization and basement offsets within the target area. Additional drilling is required to intercept the trend of the offsets. In the Grid 5 area, we were able to define during Winter 2010 exploration a zone of disruption within the main conductor and a strong resistivity anomaly in the same area, indicating a very good drill target for uranium mineralization. The ZTEM survey will provide us with additional information in this immediate area as well as look for additional similar targets for future exploration planning. Our aim is to systematically drill-test the best exploration targets during a five-year exploration plan in conjunction with our JV partner.”
