Hathor Exploration has completed the 2010 summer drilling program at its Midwest Northeast uranium property in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan.

The company said that successful infill and extension drilling adds numerous intersections of massive and semi-massive pitchblende to both the Roughrider and Roughrider East uranium deposits.

A total of 18,840m were completed in 52 drill holes out of which 21 holes were completed on Roughrider, including two on an aero magnetic anomaly 200m to the northeast along-strike.

In addition, a total of 31 drill holes were completed on Roughrider east, including two 60m along-strike to the west in ‘the Gap’, and seven holes in two transects across the resistivity anomaly to the south.

From approximately 220 drill holes that pierce the Roughrider deposit, 125 drill holes have massive to semi massive pitchblende mineralization in which there are 607 assays from individual half metre samples with > 3% U308 while 185 drill holes have anomalous radioactivity.

In the Roughrider East, from a total of 53 drill holes, 27 drill holes have visible semi-massive to massive pitchblende and 47 drill holes have anomalous radioactivity.

The company is currently developing a detailed outline of mineral zones in two-dimensions, on cross-sections spaced 10m apart along the core 120m of strike.
