Fission 3.0 Discovers 13.9% U3O8 at Beaver River's New Trigger Zone

Fission 3.0 Corp. Oct 21, 2019, 03:00 ET


Strong progress made on multiple properties in the Athabasca Basin

KELOWNA, BC, Oct. 21, 2019 /CNW/ - FISSION 3.0 CORP. ("Fission 3" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the results of recent exploration activity on three of its properties in Canada's Athabasca Basin, including Beaver River, Wales Lake and North Shore. Of particular note, prospecting at Beaver River has made new discoveries of high-grade uranium and gold at multiple locations, with the most significant located in the newly named Trigger zone, in the north east of the project. Results from Trigger include sample BR2-22-B with 13.9% U3O8 and 2.27 g/t Au and BR2-22-A with 5.93% U3O8 and 1.55 g/t Au and results at the historic VIC showing in the southwest area of the property returned gold values up to 14.0 g/t Au, uranium up to 1.1% U3O8 and copper up to 0.97% Cu. Additionally, work has confirmed high-grade uranium, gold, copper and nickel in other new discoveries and at historic showing sites.

News Highlights

Beaver River

Ground prospecting has made a new discovery of high-grade grade uranium and gold in the Trigger zone

  • Sample BR2-22-B: 13.9% U3O8 and 2.27 g/t Au
  • Sample BR2-22-A: 5.93% U3O8 and 1.55 g/t Au
High-grade uranium, gold, copper and nickel confirmed in historical showings

  • Coin Canyon: BR-00-A with 2.55% U3O8 and 0.41% Ni
  • Kisiwak Lake: BR2-40-A with 2.04% U3O8 and 0.26 g/t Au
  • VIC U-Ni-Cu: 830TM02-A with 0.13% U3O8 and 14 g/t Au
  • VIC U-Ni-Cu: 830TM03-A with 1.1% U3O8 and 0.98% Cu and 0.14% Ni
Wales Lake

  • A 1,096 line-km Airborne Vertical Time Domain Electromagnetic "VTEM" survey was completed in July, with the goal to identify trends of higher conductivity, which can lead to drill hole targeting. Interpretation of results is pending.
North Shore

  • A 80.3 line-km ground gravity survey completed in September has identified two new gravity lows coincident with historic uranium showings that have yet to be drill tested. Gravity lows are interpreted to reflect areas of hydrothermal alteration associated with northeast and southeast trending fault zones. These two areas are interpreted to have potential to host significant uranium mineralization. The data is currently being interpreted
Ross McElroy, COO, and Chief Geologist for Fission, commented,

"Fission 3.0's multi-project exploration program in the Athabasca Basin continues to make very strong progress. We are particularly encouraged with the results of ground prospecting at Beaver River, where high-grade uranium, gold and base metals such as nickel and copper have been discovered, including a new showing that we now refer to as the Trigger zone. The same program at Beaver River has also confirmed strong uranium, gold, copper and nickel mineralization in three separate historical showings. Follow up activity is currently being planned."

Project Overviews and Further Program Details

Beaverlodge Area (Beaver River)

The Beaverlodge region is a major historic uranium mining district and home to the first uranium mining operations in Saskatchewan. Prior to the discovery of high-grade uranium mineralization in the Athabasca Basin with the Key Lake and Rabbit Lake discoveries, the Beaverlodge area was the most important uranium mining district in Saskatchewan. Throughout the 1950's and 1960's, 52 mines, including 12 open-pit mines were operated.

Beaver River

The Beaver River Property consists of 20 mineral claims totaling ~18,674 ha located on the north central edge of the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan, approximately 44km east of Uranium City, SK. The property hosts numerous confirmed electromagnetic "EM" basement conductors and several historic uranium showings providing surface outcrop with reported assays up to 3.66% U3O8. EM conductors generally trend NNW-SSE, and locally exhibit strong flexures and folds.

Recent prospecting and rock sampling were conducted from July 12 to 13 and August 21 to 30, 2019 following up on airborne VTEM anomalies near zones of structural complexity as well as revisiting and resampling the historic showings of Coin Canyon, Kisiwak Lake and VIC U-Ni-Cu. A total of 13 traverses were completed and 86 outcrop rock samples were collected for multi-element geochemistry. High-grade assays of uranium,+/- gold, copper and nickel were confirmed in all 3 historic showings, with the best results being:

  • Coin Canyon: BR-00-A with 2.55% U3O8 and 0.41% Ni
  • Kisiwak Lake: BR2-40-A with 2.04% U3O8 and 0.26 g/t Au
  • VIC U-Ni-Cu: 830TM02-A with 0.13% U3O8 and 14 g/t Au
  • VIC U-Ni-Cu: 830TM03-A with 1.1% U3O8 and 0.98% Cu and 0.14% Ni
Importantly, new discoveries were made in the northern region of the property with the most noteworthy discovery in the newly named Trigger zone northeast area of the property, where sample BR2-22-B returned 13.9% U3O8 and 2.27 g/t Au and BR2-22-A returned 5.93% U3O8 and 1.55 g/t Au, The Trigger zone was a radioactive vein with a surface expression of approximately 0.3m wide and hosted in a partially silicified quartz-feldspar-biotite-garnet gneiss. The 2 samples were collected ~2m apart. Shallow overburden is present in this area but a 2m long strip was uncovered at surface and appears that it might plunge under the wall rock. Further exploration including a soil geochemistry orientation survey and small core drill follow-up is being considered to advance further tracing of this mineralization.

In October, approximately 4,858 ha of new staking was added to Beaver River to expand the property to the north and east, thus securing the on-trend potential strike extent of the Trigger Zone.

Wales Lake (PLS Area)

The 100% owned Wales Lake property is located in the south-west Athabasca Basin region ~25km to 30km west and south of Fission Uranium Corp's flagship high-grade Triple R uranium deposit on the PLS property. It is comprised of 3 non-contiguous blocks totaling ~35,440 hectares and is accessible by road with primary access from all-weather Highway 955. Similar to Fission Uranium's PLS property, Wales Lake occupies the same stratigraphic position within the Clearwater Domain and represents relatively shallow depth basement hosted target areas outside of the margin of the Athabasca Basin.

During July 2019, Geotech Ltd. carried out a helicopter-borne VTEM geophysical survey over the Wales Lake Project 'East' and 'North' blocks. A total of 1,096 line-kilometres of geophysical data were acquired during the survey. The VTEM survey was instrumental in defining conductive packages over surveyed project areas. At Wales East much of the 2019 survey area seems to be in an area of a regional fold axis where conductor's strike has changed from the general NE trending Athabasca type conductors to EW and then NW trending conductors. Many of the conductors in the 2019 survey are not well defined, and generally strike in a NNW direction. Further ground EM geophysics surveys designed to provide higher resolution are required to identify drill targets.

North Shore (Western Athabasca Basin)

The North Shore property consists of 15 metallic and industrial minerals agreements totalling 41,886 ha situated along the northwest margin of the Athabasca Basin in Alberta.

MWH Geo-Surveys Ltd. of Vernon, BC, was contracted to undertake a ground-based gravity survey on Fission 3.0 Corp's North Shore property from August 31 to September18, 2019. The survey grid was located along the north shore of Lake Athabasca, extending from Fallingsand Point northeast toward the Saskatchewan border and straddled the interpreted contact between Archean to Paleoproterozoic crystalline basement rocks and overlying Athabasca Group sediments.

The 80.3 line-km survey, comprising of 1,596 gravity stations, successfully identified two new gravity lows that are coincident with historic surface uranium showings that remain untested by drilling. The first priority area is in the southwest corner of the survey grid where a broad gravity low is present. A historic uraniferous outcrop was discovered by Uranerz Exploration and Mining Ltd in 1975 along the northeast flank of this gravity low. The second area of interest is approximately 4.8 kilometers to the northeast of the area outlined above. At this location a long, moderate, northeast trending gravity low intersects a southeast trending gravity low. These gravity lows are interpreted to reflect hydrothermal alteration around northeast and southeast trending fault zones, respectively. At the Maurice Bay uranium deposit, seven kilometers to the northeast, several uranium occurrences are hosted at the intersection of similar northeast and southeast trending structures. These two areas are interpreted to have potential to host significant uranium mineralization. The 2019 gravity survey may provide higher resolution of important structural features and identify areas of possible hydrothermal alteration, which are important associations with uranium mineralization. Data from the survey is presently being interpreted.

Updated maps for Beaver River, Wales Lake & North Shore will be available on the Company's website later this morning.

Cameco/Orano/ Purepoint Uranium Group Inc: Joint Venture Partners Plan Next Program at Hook Lake

Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. Oct 23, 2019, 06:30 ET

TORONTO, Oct. 23, 2019 /CNW/ - Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. (the "Company" or "Purepoint") (TSX: PTU.V) is pleased to discuss the results of a recent Technical Committee meeting of the Hook Lake Joint Venture, a project owned jointly by Cameco Corp. (39.5%), Orano Canada Inc. (39.5%) and Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. (21%). The latest working session included technical representatives from each company with the purpose of reviewing all target areas and collectively discussing priorities as the project advances. The Hook Lake project lies on the southwestern edge of Saskatchewan's Athabasca Basin and is adjacent to and on trend with recent high-grade uranium discoveries including Fission Uranium's Triple R deposit and NexGen's Arrow deposit.

"The obvious takeaway from our technical meeting was that the Hook Lake project has a host of prospective drill targets yet to advance," said Scott Frostad, Vice President Exploration. "Purepoint has been tasked with proposing a 3-year exploration strategy and budget requirements at our next JV meeting in early November."


  • The team reviewed all the Patterson Trend drill targets and discussed their various attributes to help prioritize the order in which they will be tested;
  • The Hornet Zone conductor, based on 2019 electromagnetic (EM) survey results, appears to remain untested south of HK13-06 that intersected 138 ppm U over 2.3 metres;
  • The 2019 EM survey results identified a previously unidentified, strongly conductive shear on trend between the Spitfire Zone and the Dragon area that will be drill tested;
  • The prospective "W" conductor, tested by HK19-105 that intersected numerous shear zones and elevated radioactivity, has new targets towards the south from the 2019 EM survey. The "W" conductor remains untested north of HK19-105 for 6 kilometres and will require additional ground geophysical surveying;
  • The Dragon conductor remains untested towards the north where it crosses a north-south trending, low magnetic response that possibly reflects structural disruption;
  • Based on the meeting discussions, Purepoint will propose a 3-year exploration plan and budget for review. Review and approval of the 2020 program and budget proposal will occur at the Hook Lake JV meeting to be held November 6th, 2019.
Hook Lake JV Project

The Hook Lake JV project is owned jointly by Cameco Corp. (39.5%), Orano Canada Inc. (39.5%) and Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. (21%) as operator and consists of nine claims totaling 28,598 hectares situated in the southwestern Athabasca Basin. The Hook Lake JV is considered one of the highest quality uranium exploration projects in the Athabasca Basin due to its location along the prospective Patterson Lake trend and the relatively shallow depth to the unconformity.

Current exploration is targeting the Patterson Lake Corridor that hosts Fission's Triple R Deposit (indicated mineral resource 87,760,000 lbs U3O8 at an average grade of 1.82% U3O8), NexGen Energy's Arrow Deposit (indicated mineral resource 256,600,000 lbs U3O8 at an average grade of 4.03%) and the Spitfire Discovery by the Hook Lake JV.

About Purepoint

Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. is focused on the precision exploration of its ten projects in the Canadian Athabasca Basin, the world's richest uranium region. Established in the Athabasca Basin well before the initial resurgence in uranium earlier last decade, Purepoint's flagship project is the Hook Lake Project, a joint venture with two of the largest uranium suppliers in the world, Cameco Corporation and Orano Canada Inc. The Hook Lake JV is on trend with recent high-grade uranium discoveries including Fission Uranium's Triple R Deposit, NexGen's Arrow Deposit and Purepoint's Spitfire discovery.
