Fission Energy and partner KEPCO Consortium have reported the completion of their Waterbury Lake summer drill program, which resulted in the successful expansion of the J-Zone uranium discovery to ~120m x 50m.

An additional nine drill holes have been completed at the J-Zone, J-East Zone, and the Highland Zone.

WAT10-111D, a vertical step-out collared 15m directly east of Hole WAT10-066 (12m of 3.64% U308, including 1.50m grading 27.38% U308, located in the southeast part of the J-Zone, intersected 6.50m of variable radioactivity (209.0m-215.5m) at the unconformity, including 1.60m (209.9-211.5) of ‘off-scale’ (cps >9,999) radioactivity.

The program totaled 5,172m in sixteen drill holes.

Seven holes were drilled at the J-Zone, three at the J-East Zone, three at the Highland Zone, and three structural holes for geological information purposes.

Of the seven holes drilled to extend the J-Zone, six intersected mineralization at the unconformity (WAT10-098A, 099, 103, 105, 109 and 111D), successfully expanding the J-Zone boundary to the north, west, and east.

On the west boundary of the J-Zone, hole WAT10-103 intersected much more robust mineralization than was seen previously.

Furthermore, hole WAT10-105 extended mineralization a further 15m to the west to line 090W.

On the east boundary of the J-Zone hole WAT10-111D extended ‘off-scale’ mineralization a further 15m to the east to line 015E.

Overall, Fission has now successfully defined the J-Zone over a ~120m X 50m area by intersecting high grade uranium mineralization at the unconformity in 27 closely spaced drill holes.

J-East is located ~60m to the east of the J-Zone in which out of the three drill holes completed this summer (WAT10-100, 102 and 110A) two (100 and 102) intersected mineralization.

Three holes (WAT10-107A, 108 and 112) were drilled to follow-up mineralization found in Hole WAT10-092A in the Highland, located ~100m to the west of the J-Zone that was drilled last winter.
