Uravan Minerals Inc. (TSXV:UVN) announced that together with Cameco (TSE:CCO, NYSE:CCJ), QFIR and Environmental BioTechnologies Inc., are doing a multi-faceted surface geochemical sampling program over the Centennial uranium deposit in Saskatchewan.

As quoted in the press release:

The survey will be completed in June 2013 and managed by Uravan’s technical group. The sampling grid consists of 491 survey stations.  A primary sampling grid covering a 600 x 950 meter area centered over the surface projection of the Centennial deposit will consist of 230 sample stations distributed on an offset 50 meter grid. An additional 261 survey stations will be distributed on 100, 200 and 500 meter spacing extending farther into background away from the deposit.

Uravan`s CEO, Larry Lahusen, said:

The results from our 2011 and 2012 drill programs suggest that a better correlation between the anomalous surface signatures and drilling results is essential. The sampling methodology and analytical protocols that will be carried out during the Centennial Survey are designed to potentially identify the geochemical signals in the soils and trees-cores that are related to the Centennial uranium deposit below versus the geochemical signature inherent from the surface media.
