Fission Uranium (TSX:FCU)(OTCQX:FCUUF)(FRANKFURT:2FU) (“Fission” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce the remaining assay results from its summer 2017 program at its’ PLS property in Canada’s Athabasca Basin region.
The final three holes to report targeted the shallow, high-grade R780E zone as part of a metallurgical study for use in a pre-feasibility study on the high-grade Triple R deposit. All three holes returned substantial intervals of high-grade uranium. Of particular note are the results from hole PLS17-MET-C (line 660E), which intersected 144.0m of total composite mineralization, including a continuous interval of 108.0m @ 8.46% U3O8, the widest continuously mineralized intervals drilled on the Triple R deposit to date.
Ross McElroy, President, COO, and Chief Geologist for Fission, commented
“The metallurgical and processing data is an important component of the pre-feasibility study.
We are very pleased with the remarkable strength of the mineralized assays, particularly from hole PLS17-MET-C, which, with a composite GT score of 958.9, ranks as one of the strongest holes drilled at PLS and among the best in the Athabasca Basin – home to the highest grade uranium deposits in the world.”
