Fission Merges Zones with More Off-scale Drilling

Fission Uranium Corp. (TSXV:FCU,OTCQX:FCUUF,FWB:2FU) released results from the latest 20 holes of the winter program at its PLS property in Saskatchewan’s Athabasca Basin, Canada. All 20 holes returned strong, wide intervals of mineralization; 65 percent of the holes include significant amounts of off-scale (as defined by greater than 9999 cps) mineralization.

Drilling highlights include:

PLS14-158 (line 990E)

  • 86.0m total composite mineralization in a 205.0m section (107.0m – 312.0m) including:
    • 10.86m total composite off-scale (greater than 9999 cps) radioactivity

PLS14-146 (line 915E)

  • 99.5m total composite mineralization in a 269.0m section (101.0m – 370.0m) including:
    • 7.35m total composite off-scale (greater than 9999 cps) radioactivity

PLS14-156 (line 720E)

  • 78.0m total composite mineralization in a 242.5m section (63.5m – 306.0m) including:
    • 7.20m total composite off-scale (greater than 9999 cps) radioactivity

Ross McElroy, president, COO, and chief geologist for Fission, commented:

Twenty drill holes, twenty strong hits. The winter program at PLS continues to deliver a 100% hit rate as we progress towards showing our multiple high-grade zones are all part of a single very large zone. The evidence is mounting that we are dealing with a mineralized system of substantial size and it’s our belief that our work at PLS has only just begun to uncover it.
