NexGen (TSX:NXE) reported its radioactivity results from its summer drilling program on its 100 percent owned Rook I property in the Athabasca Basin.
As quoted in the press release:

Step out drilling from the Arrow Deposit has returned substantial off-scale radioactivity in multiple holes. Two holes intersected extensive mineralizationnortheast of the A2 High Grade Domain, highlighted by drill hole AR-16-108c2, which intersected 69.5 m of total composite mineralizationincluding 18.05 m of off-scale radioactivity (>10,000 to >61,000 cps) in the A2 shear that was anchored by local accumulations of dense massive pitchblende mineralization and was drilled 30 m northeast of AR-14-30 (see News Release dated October 6, 2014). Drilling confirms that A2 Sub-Zone style mineralization extends northeast of drill hole -30, where very little drilling has been completed to-date.
Additionally, three holes (AR-16-103, -97, -100) completed between the Arrow Deposit and the new mineralized area 180 m to the southwest each intersected strong mineralization over significant lengths and off-scale radioactivity that locally exceeded 61,000 cps. Of specific importance, drill hole AR-16-103 intersected 66.0 m of total composite mineralization including 5.5 m of off-scale radioactivity (>10,000 – >61,000 cps). Furthermore, drilling continues to highlight that the area 180 m southwest of Arrow is highly prospective as multiple holes in this area intersected broad zones of mineralization including local concentrations of off-scale radioactivity.
In total, 26 holes have now been drilled up to 240 m southwest from the maiden NI 43-101 Arrow Deposit Inferred Mineral Resource. Numerous holes intersected multiple mineralized shears akin to the Arrow Deposit, which are likely extensions of the Arrow shear zones. Drilling reported in this news release indicates continuous mineralization along this 240 m southwest extension. Arrow’s total strike length now extending 895 m. Mineralization remains open further along strike to the southwest, and is also open laterally and vertically.
