Northern Uranium has intersected two highest gamma radiation drill results to date at its 50% owned North West Manitoba project in Canada.


Last month, the MG15DD-0016 drill hole intersected bedrock, featuring mostly semi-pelite gneiss, calc-silicate gneiss and calcareous arkose, at a down hole depth of 26m.

The company completed three additional drill holes into the southern zone of anomalous gravity, resistivity and RadonEx radon in water.

Currently, two drills are working on the project with one testing the southern anomaly.

The second drill is testing a separate eastern anomalous zone of gravity, resistivity and RadonEx radon in water target measuring 300m by 600m.

Drill holes MG15DD-0017 and MG15DD-0019 tested four strongly anomalous (716 to 1024 tracks per mm2) radon cup results on land at the western edge of the large 550 by 850 metre northern gravity-resistivity anomaly.

Northern Uranium can earn up to an 80% stake in the project from CanAlaska Uranium.

Located in northwest Manitoba just east of the border of northeast Saskatchewan, the project is 70km north of Reindeer Lake and covers 143,603ha. It shares similar geology with areas which include the Rabbit Lake, Collins Bay and Eagle Point uranium mines 90km to the South West.
