Mawson Resources has completed the summer and autumn exploration program at the company's 100% owned Rompas gold-uranium project in Finland.

The company said that approximately 2,000 samples remain to be returned from the assay laboratory and 50% of these samples are channel and chip samples from 296 individual sites within the mineralized gold and uranium trend at Rompas and the remainder of the pending assays are soil and till samples.

To date, only 283 grab sample assays have been reported during this field season within the mineralized trend.

As per protocol, Mawson’s assay contractor, ALS Chemex prepares samples that fall below a certain radioactive threshold in their Swedish facilities and samples above this threshold are transported directly, without preparation, to ALS Chemex’s facilities in Vancouver for assay.

Assays reported to date from Rompas show a strong correlation between bonanza gold and high uranium grades.

Additionally, the company continues with its work at the Alto Quemado project in Peru where mapping and surface sampling is now complete.
