Denison Mines Corp. ("Denison" or the "Company") (TSX: DML) (NYSE American: DNN) is pleased to report that drill hole WF-74A intersected 4.75% eU 3 O 8 over 13.3 metres (0.05% eU 3 O 8 cut-off), including a sub-interval grading 25.23% eU 3 O 8 over 0.5 m as part of the recently completed summer exploration program at the Waterfound River property ("Waterfound"). View PDF Version.

Uranium mineralization was encountered in three of the seven drill holes completed during the summer exploration program, following up on the winter 2022 discovery of high-grade mineralization approximately 800 metres to the west of the Alligator Zone. The discovery from the winter 2022 program was highlighted by drill hole WF-68, which returned a mineralized interval of 5.91% eU 3 O 8 over 3.9 metres (see press release dated March 29, 2022 ). Figure 1 and Figure 2 depict the location of the Alligator Zone and the 2022 summer drilling, respectively.

Andy Yackulic , P. Geo., Denison's Director, Exploration, commented, "The mineralized intersection from WF-74A represents the best mineralized hole drilled on the Waterfound property to date, and highlights the potential for the discovery of additional high-grade uranium mineralization further along strike to the west of the Alligator Zone.  The mineralization in WF-74A appears to be offset to the north when compared to the interpreted location of mineralization previously discovered in WF-68. This offset is notable, as it potentially indicates that a later, cross-cutting fault may be present between WF-74A and WF-68. The area to the west of WF-74A is sparsely drilled, thus leaving several kilometres of the fertile La Rocque conductive corridor open for follow up."

Denison has an effective 24.68% ownership interest in the Waterfound River Joint Venture ("Waterfound JV") to which each of Orano Canada Inc. ("Orano Canada"), Denison, and JCU ( Canada ) Exploration Company, Limited ("JCU") are participants. Orano Canada has a 62.42% interest in the Waterfound JV and is the project operator.

2022 Waterfound River Summer Exploration Program Highlights

Drill hole WF-74A was completed approximately 40 metres west of WF-68 and intersected a broad zone of uranium mineralization grading 4.75% eU 3 O 8 over 13.3 metres (0.05% eU 3 O 8 cut-off), hosted within faulted Athabasca sandstone. The mineralization in WF-74A represents the best mineralized intersection drilled to date on the Waterfound property, and is highlighted by multiple narrow intervals of high-grade uranium hosted within fault strands, interpreted to represent the brittle reactivation of the D-1 conductor.

At the conclusion of the summer drill program, the mineralization intersected in WF-74A remains open along strike to the west and across strike in both directions. Additional drilling is required in this area to resolve the structural controls on the high-grade mineralization in WF-74A.

Drill holes WF-73 and WF-73-1 were drilled to test the D-1 conductor approximately 300 m along strike to the east of high-grade mineralization discovered during the 2022 winter drilling program in drill hole WF-68. WF-73 intersected perched uranium mineralization approximately 5 metres above the unconformity, grading 0.09% eU 3 O 8 over 0.2 metres. The follow up hole, WF-73-1, successfully intersected uranium mineralization (0.34% eU 3 O 8 over 1.6 metres) located immediately above the unconformity contact.

The mineralized intersections from the 2022 summer exploration drilling program are illustrated in Figure 2 and summarized in Table 1 below.

Overall, the 2022 summer exploration program consisted of seven completed diamond drill holes totalling 3,902.6 metres. Each of the holes completed during the summer drilling program intersected indicative alteration and structural disruption related to brittle-ductile deformation along the D-1 conductor trend. In addition, each of the holes encountered elevated radioactivity in the basal Athabasca sandstone, although only holes WF-73, WF-73-1, and WF-74A returned radiometric equivalent uranium grades exceeding 0.05% eU 3 O 8 .

Radiometric Equivalent Grades, Sampling, Analysis and Data Verification

Following the completion of a drill hole, the hole is radiometrically logged using a downhole slimline gamma probe, which collects continuous readings of radioactivity along the length of the drill hole. Probe results are then calibrated using an algorithm calculated from the comparison of probe results against geochemical analyses in the area. The gamma-log results provide an immediate radiometric equivalent uranium value (eU%, then converted to eU 3 O 8 %) for the hole, which, except in very high-grade zones, is reasonably accurate. The Company typically reports eU 3 O 8 , as a preliminary result and subsequently reports definitive assay grades following sampling and chemical analysis of the mineralized drill core.

Assay sample intervals are generally 50 centimetres long, except where higher or lower grade mineralization boundaries fall within the interval. In that case, two 25 centimetre samples are collected. Flank samples of 1.0 metre are always collected where mineralization is located. Systematic geochemistry samples are collected every 10 metres down the hole.

All assayed core is split in half, with one half retained and the other sent to the SRC Geoanalytical Laboratory in Saskatoon for analysis. Control samples are routinely assayed with each batch of core samples analyzed.

VIDEO — Fabi Lara: Uranium Thesis Playing Out, Stock Strategies for the Sector

Fabi Lara: Uranium Thesis is Playing Out, Stock Strategies for the Sectoryoutu.be

As positive catalysts emerge more and more rapidly, the uranium sector is attracting renewed interest.

Both retail and institutional investors are picking up on the opportunity attached to the commodity, which has spent most of the past decade in a bear market, suffering from oversupply and poor public perception after the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Fabi Lara, an investor and marketing consultant for public companies, explained how she stayed patient after entering the uranium market all the way back in 2014. Being able to make gains even as negative sentiment weighed on the sector was helpful; however, what really kept her going was the fact that the uranium thesis hasn't played out yet.
