Resource Star, an uranium explorer, has conducted an aeromagnetic and multi-spectral radiometric survey, which identified uranium anomalies at its 90%-owned Ilomba Hill Uranium-Niobium Project in Malawi.

The survey has confirmed the findings with four of the eight samples highly anomalous in niobium (>1% Nb2O5) and uranium (2,000ppm to >1% U3O8), with six having elevated zirconium results (>0.5% ZrSiO4), Proactive Investors reported.

The satellite targets found are within a major uranium/thorium feature, with a strong radiometric target defined over a 1-1.5km strike length and the identified features are radiometric anomalies within the alkali syenite intrusive

The radiometric anomalies will form the focus of ground exploration slated to begin by the end of October and designed to develop trenching and drilling targets.

The company has now planned a reconnaissance mapping and systematic soil sampling, and has submitted an application to buy additional nearby prospective geology.
