Kivalliq Energy has provided an update on drilling at the Lac Cinquante Uranium Deposit located within the Angilak Project in Nunavut, Canada. The first nine drill holes, totalling 1,665mt, focused on confirmation and infill drilling within the eastern portion of the historic resource at Lac Cinquante.
The first nine holes were drilled primarily on 25mt centers, focusing on confirmation and infill drilling within the eastern portion of the historic resource at Lac Cinquante. Holes 10-LC-002 through 10-LC-009 were step-outs westward and down plunge of significant mineralization intersected last year in holes 09-LC-001 and 09-LC-002.
Hole 10-LC-001 was drilled 100 metres east of 09-LC-015, also drilled last year. Drilling continues on this Phase 1 2010 spring program, totalling approximately 1,665 metres to date, with drill hole depths ranging from 50mt to 230mt .
Core samples from seven holes, with maximum radioactivity levels up to 60,000 CPS, have been sent to Saskatchewan Research Council Geoanalytical Laboratories (SRC) for analysis.
SRC operates in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025:2005 (CAN-P-4E), General Requirements for the Competence of Mineral Testing and Calibration laboratories, and is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada. Chemical assay results from this drill program will be reported by Kivalliq upon receipt.
Natural gamma radiation in drill core was measured in counts per second (CPS) using a hand-held Radiation Solutions RS-121 scintillometer. The company cautions that scintillometer readings are not directly related to uranium grade and are only used to indicate zones of radioactive material.
