NexGen Energy Ltd. (TSXV:NXE) confirmed uranium in three holes at its Rook 1 property, immediately adjacent to the Patterson Lake South property in the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan. Hole RK-13-05 intercepted uranium between 220.5 to 224.5 m of 4.0 m at 330ppm.
- Uranium confirmed in hole RK-13-05 as a downhole intercept between 220.5 – 224.5 m of 4.0 m @ 330ppm U3O8.
- Holes RK-13-03 and -06 intercepted a combination of uranium- and thorium-bearing minerals.
- All 3 holes were located on separate EM conductors as highlighted in Figure 1 immediately along strike of and adjacent to the Patterson Lake South discovery.
NexGen Energy CEO, Leigh Curyer, said:
Our very first, widely spaced work program at Rook 1 has confirmed uranium mineralisation on trend and on the same interpreted conductors as the PLS discovery made by Fission Uranium in 2011. The Company is well funded, and we are excited to leverage off these very early encouraging results for a successful 2014 winter drill program.
