Fission Hits High-Grade Shallow Depth Mineralization at R600W Zone at Triple R

- March 26th, 2015

Fission Uranium Corp. (TSX:FCU) announced assays from hole PLS15-343 at the R600W zone at its PLS property in the Athabasca Basin, which returned high-grade shallow mineralization including 14.74 percent U3O8 over 9.0 meters within a larger interval of 3.36 percent U3O8 over 44 meters.

Fission Uranium Corp. (TSX:FCU) announced assays from hole PLS15-343 at the R600W zone at its PLS property in the Athabasca Basin, which returned high-grade shallow mineralization including 14.74 percent U3O8 over 9.0 meters within a larger interval of 3.36 percent U3O8 over 44 meters.

As quoted in the press release:

Hole PLS15-343 was the first hole at the land-based R600W zone to encounter large amounts of strong anomalous radioactivity. Follow-up holes at the 600W zone, including PLS15-352 (line 615W) and PLS15-360 (line 630W), also hit similarly wide intercepts of strong radioactivity in addition to expanding the footprint of the zone. Assays for these holes are pending.

Ross McElroy, president, COO and chief geologist for Fission, commented:

The R600W zone is emerging as an impressive high-grade zone and importantly, it is open in all directions. Encountering this grade and width 555m from the Triple R deposit is tremendously exciting and we are looking forward to receiving the assays from our follow up holes at the zone. Just as importantly, this hole has very similar geology to the Triple R deposit and our recently announced winter program expansion will focus on the R600W.
