Fission Uranium (TSXV:FCU,OTCQX:FCUUF,FWB:2FU) released assay results from six drill-holes drilled in the R780E zone and one hole drilled in the R1155E zone at its Patterson Lake South (PLS) property in Saskatchewan’s Athabasca Basin, Canada. Of particular note is hole PLS14-181 (line 555E) from zone R780E, which returned a composite assay result including 23.53% U3O8 over 4.0m within a wider interval of 6.01% U3O8 over 17.5m. All six holes from zone R780E returned substantial high-grade assays. These results highlight the strength of the central area of the zone, just as the assays announced in NR July 2nd, 2014 underscore the strength of the eastern section.

According to the press release, assay highlights include:

PLS14-181 (Line 555E)

  • 17.5m (148.0m to 165.5m) @ 6.01% U3O8, including:
    • 4.0m (154.0m to 158.0) @ 23.53% U3O8

PLS14-184 (Line 570E)

  • 14.5m (110.5m to 125.0m) @ 2.02% U3O8, including:
    • 2.0m (123.0m to 125.0m) @ 8.31% U3O8
  • 19.0m (158.5m to 177.5m) @ 1.65% U3O8, including:
    • 3.5m (174.0m to 177.5m) @ 4.45% U3O8

PLS14-172 (Line 825E)

  • 28.0m (86.0m to 114.0m) @ 2.10% U3O8, including:
    • 8.5m (95.0m to 103.5m) @ 5.88% U3O8

President, COO and Chief Geologist for Fission, Ross McElroy commented:

Excellent growth from the central part of the expansive high-grade, shallow depth R780E zone and some very promising assays from hole PLS14-190 from the R1155E zone which speaks to the strong potential to discover further mineralization in the 75m gap between the R780E and R1155E zones.
