Canadian uranium exploration company Zadar Ventures has commenced the summer exploration program on its PNE Uranium Project in the Patterson Lake area of the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan.

According to historical data, PNE has been identified as a project with a high discovery potential for an unconformity or basement hosted uranium resource at shallow depths, based on lithology, structure, alteration and historical boulder sampling.

The first 2013 uranium exploration program targets boulder prospecting/sampling, ground-based geophyscal (scintillometer) surveys and a first pass Alpha-Track Uranium Services radon cup survey.

This program will follow up and identify the probable source of historically reported boulders with elevated to anomalous uranium and boron contents (pathfinders for uranium deposits) that have been reported on-property.

Information gathered from the first phase PNE field program will be used to undertake the permitting process towards follow up ground and airborne geophysical surveys and subsequent diamond drilling.
