Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. (TSXV: PTU | OTCQB: PTUUF) has added approximately 8,865ha to its property following the completion of an airborne Mobile MagnetoTellurics (MobileMT) survey on the company’s Tabbernor project in Canada.
“The initial data from our recently completed MobileMT survey not only confirmed the Central electromagnetic (EM) conductor but identified a significant EM anomaly continuing to the east beyond our claim line which we have now acquired,” commented Purepoint VP of exploration, Scott Frostad.
“The original three Tabbernor properties were staked based on the geological intersection of the north-south Tabbernor fault system and major deposits in the Athabasca Basin. Additional land was staked before last year’s geophysical survey to capture all of the Central EM conductor that crosscut and possibly extended beyond the projects. The Central EM conductor on our Tabbernor project is now known to stretch for just over 50km.”
The Tabbernor Project consists of 34 claims that total 79,463ha. The original block of three north-south claim groups (23 claims) that covered Tabbernor structures have now been joined by an additional 11 claims that cover a strong east-northeast trending corridor of conductive rocks.
Purepoint recently completed a 2,667km line airborne MobileMT geophysical survey focused on the 50km conductive corridor that cuts through the project. A detailed soil geochemical survey was also performed covering approximately 2.5km of the Central EM conductor within a prospective area.
Drilling to the west on an adjacent property also identified significant mineralization associated with the Central EM conductor. Final geophysical products, assays, and interpretations are pending.
The wholly-owned Tabbernor Project was staked along three major trends of the Tabbernor Fault System, a deep seated, 1,500km crustal shear system that runs north through the Athabasca Basin. The system not only hosts over 80 historic mines and gold occurrences but also crosscuts the basin’s mine trend aligning itself with eight of the basin’s largest uranium discoveries.
