Fission 3.0 Corp (TSXV: FUU) has commenced winter drilling at its 100% owned Patterson Lake North (PLN) project in Canada’s Athabasca Basin.
A 20-hole programme of step out drilling is planned to expand on the highly successful drill results from November 2022 where assays confirmed shallow depth, wide and continuous mineralization in basement rock with 15.0 m @ 6.97% U3O8 including a high-grade 5.5 m interval averaging 18.6% U3O8 (PLN22-035).
Drill holes are designed to test for continuation of mineralization along strike, and up and down dip, where four holes drilled in the fall 2022 outlined a very significant zone of high-grade uranium, which remains open in all directions.
“The Fission 3 technical team draws from previous experience with resource definition and zone expansion drilling of basement hosted mineralization at Fission Uranium’s Triple R deposit at Patterson Lake South, as well as unconformity-type mineralization from its work at Fission Energy’s J Zone deposit at Waterbury Lake,” Vice President Exploration, Raymond Ashley, said.
“We are eager to set about to learn the controls on the mineralization and to grow and establish the potential size of this new zone.”
The plan will include additional holes on section lines 00N and 15S to establish the extent of the mineralization that has already be intersected on those two lines before stepping out along strike. Holes will also test up-dip for unconformity and sandstone hosted mineralization.
Assay results from the remaining drill holes of the fall 2022 program will be released as they become available and finalised.
About Patterson Lake North:
The company’s large 39,946 hectare 100% owned Patterson Lake North property (PLN) is located just within the south-western edge of the Athabasca Basin in proximity to Fission Uranium’s Triple R and NexGen Energy’s Arrow high-grade world class uranium deposits which is poised to become the next major area of development for new uranium operations in northern Saskatchewan.
PLN is accessed by Provincial Highway 955, which transects the property, and the new A1 uranium discovery is located 23km northwest of Fission Uranium’s Triple R deposit.
