Fission Uranium Corp. (TSXV:FCU,OTCQX:FCUUF,FWB:2FU) reported new results from seven angled drill holes at its Patterson Lake South property in Saskatchewan’s Athabasca Basin. All seven holes returned wide mineralization, and have resulted in the merging of two zones at the property.
As quoted in the press release:
Two Zones Merge: Of key significance is the location of hole PLS14-264 (line 1125E) which was drilled in the previous 75m gap separating the R780E and R1155E zones. Mineralization in this hole has demonstrated the continuity between the shallow depth, high-grade R780E to the west and the R1155E zone to the east. The newly enlarged R780E zone currently has a strike length of 930m (L225E to 1155E), up from 855m (L225E to 1080E).
High-Grades Expand in Zone R780E: Of additional note, high-grade mineralization within the R780E zone has been expanded a further 15m west to line 270E. Previously, high grades extended as far west as line 285E (holes PLS14-138, 157 and 169), with lower grades encountered as far as line 225E (PLS13-093). Further drilling is planned to test for continuation of high-grade mineralization to the west.
Fission president, COO and chief geologist, Ross McElroy, said:
Today’s results have merged yet another eastern mineralized zone (R1155E) with the rapidly expanding R780E zone. We are also seeing the westward expansion of the R780E’s extensive high-grade area. The summer program is continuing to drive PLS forward at a tremendous pace.
