Fission Uranium has identified six new high grade holes at its 31,039ha Patterson Lake South property near the southwest edge of the Athabasca Basin, Canada.

The company received results from 10 of the 60 holes it plans to drill this summer. All 10 holes claimed to have intersected mineralization with six holes indicating strong radioactive intervals measuring over 10,000 cps.

Hole PLS15-416, drilled on the eastern edge of the Triple R’s R780E zone, intersected 3.93m total composite mineralization of greater than 10,000 cps radioactivity.

The drill core intersected 48m of total composite mineralization on a 170m section starting at 207.5 m below surface.

Fission said R600W zone has now extended to a strike length of 105m and high grade hole 15-408 moved the limit of the zone 15m west, and hole 15-404 extended it another 15m to the east.

Fission president, COO, and chief geologist Ross McElroy said: "We have now intercepted substantial high-grade mineralization on the far eastern side of the R780E zone (line 1125E), with the strongest mineralization to date in that area.

"In addition, the high-grade, shallow depth R600W zone has now reached 105m in strike length and continues to show a rapid growth rate with a style of mineralization similar to that of the Triple R’s R780E zone, over half a kilometer on-strike to the east."
