NexGen Energy (TSXV:NXE) has announced further results from its ongoing spring drilling program on its 100 percent owned Rook I Property in the Athabasca Basin.
As quoted in the press release:

Drilling at the area 180 m southwest of Arrow has intersected significant off-scale radioactivity associated with extensive visible uranium mineralization. All 3 holes in this area have intersected off-scale mineralization. A total of 11 drill holes have now encountered mineralization in this area, which remains open in all directions and has currently established a strike length of 76 m. Future drilling will be directed to determine whether this area which is 180 m southwest of Arrow, is connected to Arrow to the northeast, and the extent of the area further to the southwest.
Hole AR-16-90c3, which was drilled 74 m up-dip and southwest of hole AR-16-77c2 (see press release March 30, 2016) has intersected 8.05 m of total composite off-scale radioactivity (>10,000 to >61,000 cps) marked by dense accumulations of massive to semi-massive pitchblende within 68.0 m of total composite mineralization. Included as part of the 8.05 m of off-scale mineralization 1.5 m of minimum-greater-than- 61,000 cps including 1.0 m that was continuous. This is the most significantly mineralized hole to date at this newly identified area.
