Elevate Uranium Limited (“Elevate Uranium”, or the “Company”) (ASX:EL8) (OTCQX: ELVUF) is pleased to announce completion of an airborne electro-magnetic survey (“EM”) and radiometric survey flown over EPL7508 (named Capri) in the Central Erongo Area, Namibia (Figure 1).
Elevate Uranium’s Managing Director, Murray Hill, commented:
“With the airborne EM survey identifying 73 kilometres of palaeochannel within the tenement, Capri is shaping up to be another exciting tenement for the Company. In addition, the airborne survey identified large areas with significant uranium radiometric responses coinciding with sections of the palaeochannels, which we have only previously seen in areas of the Marenica Uranium Project where shallow uranium mineralisation is present. A drilling program will be undertaken in the June Quarter 2022 to explore these palaeochannels. The Company is encouraged that it continues to identify significant exploration drill targets in this highly prospective uranium province.”
This latest survey totalled 477 line kilometres of EM and radiometric data on NW-SE oriented flight lines spaced at 250 metres, where the sensor flying height was nominally 35 metres. This survey covered the northern portion of the tenement and is complementary with an older frequency domain electromagnetic survey flown to the south of the tenement. These two surveys have been interpreted to infer the palaeochannels shown in Figure 1.
The combined surveys have identified north-western and south-eastern palaeochannels in a geological location prospective for “calcrete-type” uranium, similar to that at the Marenica Uranium Project on which the Company developed its U-pgradeTM beneficiation process (Figure 2). The north-western palaeochannel extends for at least 48 kilometres within Capri. Of particular significance is the presence of a 10 x 5 kilometre area of anomalous radiometric uranium response coincident with or immediately adjacent to an inferred palaeochannel.

Renforth Resources (CSE:RFR) (OTC:RFHRF) (“Renforth” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that field exploration at Parbec for May/June 2019 has concluded with the successful intersection of, amongst other positive developments, quartz veins on surface as projected from drillholes intersecting gold south of the Cadillac Break associated with a diorite splay, previously disclosed drill results which were projected to surface as seen below included 5.55 g/t Au over 0.5m in Renforth’s PAR-18-86 and in the earlier PAR-08-03 drilled by Globex 2.35 g/t Au over 3.3m.
This program has demonstrated that Parbec, has significant structural complexity, known in some areas to be associated with gold, in other newly exposed areas assays are pending. The program targeted 4 areas of interest, namely (1) the “Diorite Nose” in the NW, where the Diorite Splay and Cadillac Break interact and prior trenching discovered gold, an area (2) south of this, over the Pontiac Sediments and Diorite Splays, an area where prior drill holes intersected gold at depth, (3) the examination of known outcrop in an undrilled area of the Cadillac Break and (4) target gold bearing 2018 grab samples in an undrilled area near the ramp face.
The Diorite Nose/NW area was initially trenched in 2017, returning 1.55 g/t Au over 9m, including 3.94 g/t over 1m (press release May 9 2019). This area was expanded to create a bedrock exposure which was washed, mapped and channelled, with some adjacent unwashed stripping also undertaken. This exposure revealed felsite and porphyry units forming discontinuous lenses, demonstrated as mineralized in prior trenching, and dykes which strongly cross-cut the regional structures, namely the Cadillac Break. In addition to this at least 3 low-angle quartz veins were discovered in the NW and an area of the Cadillac Break schists which contains multiple narrow lenses of diorite, felsite and quartz which strongly resemble mixed-lithology mineralized zones seen in several of Renforth’s drillholes in the NW.
The southern Sediment/Splay area was trenched over a diorite/schist unit (a Diorite Splay) forming a prominent ridge and ended in the Pontiac Sediments in the south. This area was mapped in a preliminary fashion only as washing was not possible due to equipment breakdown. The target of this trenching was mineralized veins intersected along the south margin of the diorite in drill holes, several veins were uncovered on surface in expected locations when projected to surface.
The undrilled area of the Cadillac Break with outcrop was stripped and exposed two lenses of a type of felsite set in schist close to the south margin of a large diorite. This area could not be washed but samples were selected.
The undrilled area near the ramp was stripped in the vicinity of the previous grab sample of 1.04 g/t Au taken on a narrow ridge. Stripping revealed a number of bulbous ridges in the area of the original showing, numerous quartz veins were exposed over 5m in strike, these were sampled. Also exposed was a 1.5m wide felsite-type structure striking almost N/S, perpendicular to the Break, this program has highlighted several of these, their presence is of interest as they could have been missed in drilling to date, which has all been carried out perpendicular (almost N/S) to the Break where it would be alongside the structures.
Samples were cut, bagged and tagged in the field by the geologists, they have been delivered for assay and will be reported upon once results are available.
