Denison Mines reports the expansion of the Huskie zone with the receipt of chemical assay (“U3O8 ”) results from the company’s winter 2018 diamond drilling program.
Denison Mines (DML: TSX, DNN: NYSE) is pleased to report the expansion of the Huskie zone with the receipt of chemical assay (“U3O8”) results from the company’s winter 2018 diamond drilling program on the 64.22 percent owned Waterbury Lake project.
As quoted in the press release:
“Drill hole WAT18-452 represents the second-best hole to date at Huskie in terms of combined grade and thickness and a meaningful expansion in the down-dip direction. The high-grade mineralization at Huskie appears to be controlled by the intersection of east-west striking faults, associated with the graphitic gneiss unit, and cross-cutting northeast striking faults, possibly related to the regional Midwest structure. This has led to high-grade ‘lens stacking’ in a northeast direction as opposed to the lenses being laterally extensive along strike to the east and west. Our team will utilize this improved understanding to target additional high-grade mineralization proximal to Huskie and along this northeast structural trend,” said Dale Verran, Vice President of Exploration at Denison.
