Uranium exploration company Alligator Energy has commenced its 2013 Field Season at the Tin Camp Creek Uranium Project in the Alligator Rivers Uranium Province, in the Northern Territory.

The company has re-opened access roads to the Tin Camp Creek area and completed survey of drill sites for the upcoming 2013 Caramal resource extension drilling program.

Initially, the Company intends to carry out a 2,000m reverse circulation (RC) and Diamond drilling developed to test extensions to the existing resource at the Caramal Deposit.

The drill program aims to add to the Caramal resource which currently stands at 6.5Mlb U3O8 at 3100ppm U3O8.

To date, the company has drilled more than 15,000m, in total, at Tim Camp Creek project area during its 2011 and 2012 exploration seasons.

Alligator has also secured approval to undertake field work including drilling at the high grade Gorrunghar Prospect, in the north west part of the Tin Camp Creek Project area.

In addition, a collaboration project with CSIRO to trial key techniques in order to improve targeting and assessment of unconformity-style uranium systems will begin in July 2013, using drill core from the company’s 2011 and 2012 drill programs.
