Planned for up to 4,000m, the drill program is testing coincident geological, structural, gravity, basement conductor, magnetic and radon anomalies.

Last summer, Aldrin conducted helicopter VTEM survey (magnetic and electromagnetic data) which yielded strong basement conductor anomalies precisely parallel to the high-grade mineralization at Patterson Lake discovered by Fission Uranium.

The VTEM conductors, which occur within low magnetic susceptibility rocks, are consistent with the fine grained metasediments that host uranium in the Athabasca Basin.

Following completion the VTEM conductors testing with a surface radon survey, which returned high value anomalies over the conductors, Aldrin performed surface gravity survey and identified strong gravity lows closely associated with the radon anomalies and again located over the basement conductors, the company said.

Aldrin vice president of exploration and development Harrison Cookenboo said that the company built very strong drill targets and is ready to test them.

"They are precisely parallel to Fission’s spectacular high-grade uranium discovery on their adjacent Patterson Lake property," Cookenboo added.

"I believe Aldrin’s first uranium drill campaign has a strong opportunity for discovery."
