The company has recently acquired Patterson group of claims prospective for uranium.

Of the three claim blocks, the west block directly borders the recent discovery at Alpha Minerals and Fission Energy’s Patterson Lake South prospect while the other two blocks are in the direct vicinity of the discovery.

Makena president Negar Adam said: "This project is bordering one of the most exciting new uranium discoveries anywhere in the world in recent years.

"Management is optimistic that this next phase of work may validate our Patterson property, since it is in one of the most prolific uranium districts globally."

Makena holds 50% stake in the Clone property in British Columbia.

The company has so far achieved significant drill results that returned grades of 12.8m of 44.75g per ton gold and a 102 ton bulk sample that returned grades of four ounces per ton.
