Macusani Yellowcake Inc. (TSXV:YEL,FRANKFURT:QG1) announces high-grade intersections from its drilling program at the Quebrada Blanca anomaly on its flagship Kihitian Property. The Company has finished 4 511 m of drilling on the Quebrada Blanca anomaly to date and has published results from the initial 10 holes. One of the Company’s most significant results from hole #QB36-TSW returned a weighted average of 1 530 ppm U3O8 over 22.0 m.
As quoted in the press release:
The new results include high grade uranium assays returning a weighted average of 9 286 ppm U3O8 over 2.0 m from 20.0 to 22.0 m (or 18.57 lbs/ton over 6.6 ft). All ten platforms drilled to date at Quebrada Blanca have intersected the mineralized manto “B” target. A new mineralized target intersected 80-100 m below manto “B”.
Macusani Yellowcake Inc. President and CEO, Dr. Laurence Stefan said:
The latest assays at the Quebrada Blanca anomaly continue to demonstrate the encouraging near surface uranium mineralization potential of the western area of the Kihitian concession. In addition, the presence at depth of a new mineralized sequence located 100m below manto “B”, consistently intercepted by three vertical boreholes, is a new addition to our geological model. We now have discoveries covering a 5 km strike length and continue to explore with three drills on the Kihitian property.
