Canadian uranium exploration and development firm Fission Energy and its joint venture partner Alpha Minerals have reported further findings of high grade uranium mineralization at the Patterson Lake South (PLS) project in Saskatchewan.

The Patterson Lake South project is a 50:50 joint venture between Fission Energy and Alpha Minerals, where a recent core drill program was conducted at Hole PLS 13-038.

The findings were located along the conductor 385m east of Discovery with two high grade zones.

An upper zone of 57.5m contained strong mineralization and a lower zone of 15.5m featured intermittent mineralized zones.

Fission president, COO and chief geologist Ross McElroy commented that Hole PLS13-038, based on anomalous results of a recently completed radon in water and sediment survey, supports the company’s winter program at Patterson Lake.

"Such broad mineralization at shallow depth with such a significant zone of off-scale radioactivity is extremely encouraging.

"Further drilling will be focused in the area around this new exciting drill result," McElroy added.
