Fission Energy Corp. (TSXV:FIS,OTCQX:FSSIF) and its 50% Joint Venture partner ESO Uranium Corp., announced that trenching at the PLS Property has yielded an additional forty-nine radioactive boulders with nineteen boulders.
As quoted in the press release:
Trenching at the PLS Property has yielded an additional forty-nine radioactive boulders with nineteen boulders producing “off-scale” (>9,999 counts per second [cps]) radioactive readings, as measured by hand held Exploranium GR-110G total count gamma-ray scintillometers. The largest “off scale” boulder consisted of massive pitchblende with yellow secondary uranium minerals and measured 25x30x40 cms, while three other radioactive boulders were too large to remove by hand. The size of the boulders increases from west to east, suggesting the source rocks to be the Archean Basement located to the northeast and well within the claims held by the Joint Venture. Of the eighteen trenches completed, eight exhibited significant radioactivity. These latest radioactive boulders occur in the high grade boulder field that has been traced for a north-south length of approximately 5km X up to 0.9km wide.
The successful completion of this trenching program represents a significant step towards locating the bedrock source of the large uranium boulder field discovered by the Joint Venture in June 2011 (see news release dated July 27, 2011).
