Alpha Minerals Inc. (TSXV:AMW) and Fission Uranium drilled the largest accumulation of mineralized intervals in any hole at the Patterson Lake South property in the Athabasca Basin to date. Drill hole PLS13-099 on line 960E intersected 144.0m total composite mineralization within 180.0m section, with 8.0m of total composite off-scale (>9999 cps) radioactivity in several discrete intervals ranging from 0.1m to 1.7m each (169.5m – 257.0m). The PLS discovery now has high-grade mineralization on trend, along a strike length of 1.035km.
As quoted in the press release:
- PLS13-099 Drilling Highlights include:
- 144.0m total composite mineralization within 180.0m section (101.0m – 281.0m)
- 8.0m of total composite off-scale (>9999 cps) radioactivity in several discrete intervals ranging from 0.1m to 1.7m each (169.5m – 257.0m)
- Extends on trend strike length of PLS discovery to 1.035km
Composited uranium mineralized intervals are summarized in Table 1 below. Samples from the drill core are split in half on site. Where possible, samples are standardized at 0.5m down-hole intervals. One-half of the split sample is sent to the laboratory for analysis and the other half remains on site for reference. All depth measurements reported, including sample and interval widths are down-hole, core interval measurements and true thickness are yet to be determined.
