Alpha Exploration Inc. (TSXV:AEX) reported that elevated radioactivity and strong alteration on the Middle Lake Property were encountered within the ten holes drilled on the Middle Lake Property.

As quoted in the press release:

Drill holes ML14-019, -021, and -024 to -029 all intersected anomalous gamma radiation values based on down-hole gamma logging and hand-held scintillometer analysis. The first drill hole of the series, ML14-019, tested a well-defined gravity low anomaly and a coincident VTEM conductor located about 300 m up-ice from a boulder with a reported grade of 16.9% U3O8, and about 5 km up-ice from the historical Donna boulder field with grades up to 25% U3O8. ML14-019 intersected anomalous radioactivity and moderately to strongly bleached and pale green altered pegmatite with dark smokey quartz, that was repeatedly intruded by strongly bleached and clay altered Cluff Breccia.

Team Alpha considers this first phase of drilling to have been an encouraging first step towards locating shallow mineralization that may be associated with a source area of the historical Donna boulder field located down-ice to the SW. A review of assays and geochemistry will be carried out upon receipt of results in order to assist in further target selection.
