The $0.53m exploration plan is expected to begin early August 2013. The program will include airborne VTEM max and ground Time Domain Electromagnetic (TDEM) and Magnetotellurics (MT) geophysical surveys.

These surveys will help in identifying and prioritizing drill targets for the 2014 winter program.

Azincourt Uranium president and CEO Ted O’Connor said that the purpose of the summer program is to investigate specific key areas on the project identified from earlier explorations as well as to establish drill targets for future drill testing.

"The PLN property is strategically located between the PLS high-grade uranium discovery to the south and the Shea Creek deposits to the north.

"There are a number of positive features on the regional and project scale that lead us to believe the property is highly prospective, and we are looking forward to the start of the program," O’Connor noted.

The total budget for the summer and winter programs planned at PLN has been set at $1.5m, with about $1m to be spent on the winter drill program.

Azincourt Uranium recently completed a $1.5m private placement to fund the PLN project work.
