Junior mining firm Mindax has announced that it has received the one meter assays taken from the four meter composite samples comprising elevated uranium, that were earlier reported from the 2013 drill program at its Kellerberrin project.

The Kellerberrin uranium project is located about 170km east of Perth and makes up the central portion of the Yilgarn-Avon Joint Venture group of tenements that was formed with Quasar Resources.

The 14 composite samples that had returned anomalous uranium grades of greater than 20ppm uranium from the first round of assaying were selected for re-assay, creating 51 one-meter samples for re-assay.

Mindax said a further detailed analysis of previous drill results confirms the presence of modest levels of uranium within the drilled area of palaeochannel system, suggesting that uranium may have remained in solution and passed through the area to be deposited elsewhere in the palaeochannel system.

Results were generally low grade with a best result of 1m at 63ppm uranium.

The company said that further interpretation of results and assessment of future work programs is ongoing.

Mindax managing director and chief executive officer Steve Ward said, "Our understanding of the uranium presence in the palaeochannel has improved markedly following this year’s drill program. Whilst, we have not found significantly elevated uranium levels in the Kellerberrin Project areas we have drilled this year, the results obtained will enable us to focus our future efforts."
