Uranium company Forte Energy has reported the second group of assay results from its A238 uranium anomaly in the north of its leases in Mauritania.

The company has released the drilling results from an additional 17 holes from the recently completed 7000m Reverse Circulation (RC), 120 hole, drilling program on its leases in northern Mauritania.

Most of the RC holes included in this group of assays were focused on shallow definition of the northern strike extensions with only one hole (238RC75) being in the main high grade zone.

To date, results from 27 holes out of 120 drilled have been processed and subsequently reported.

The company said that a more detailed study of the origins of this high grade core will be undertaken as part of the resource modeling process once all assays are received.

The preliminary indications reveal the presence of a plunging shoot at A238, according to the company.
