Drilling at Fission Uranium’s Patterson Lake South has confirmed the R1515W zone, and several analysts are expecting the resource to continue to expand.
Fission Uranium Corp. (FCU:TSX; FCUUF:OTCQX; 2FU:FSE) announced that follow-up drilling on the R1515W zone of the Patterson Lake South (PLS) project in Canada’s Athabasca Basin region has confirmed the high-grade discovery that the company first announced on March 20. Fission has completed drilling two of the four follow-up holes, and they provide the strongest mineralization yet encountered at the high-grade, near-surface and land-based zone.
Ross McElroy, president, COO and chief geologist for Fission commented, “PLS17-553 is the second strongly mineralized hole in the newly discovered zone and confirms the potential for significant widths and high-grade radioactivity. The R1515W is the western-most zone of high-grade mineralization on our Patterson Lake Corridor trend and expands the strike-length of our high-grade mineralized foot-print to 3.14km—the largest in the region. . .it is open in multiple directions and we look forward to the next two holes of our follow-up drilling.”
David Talbot, an analyst with Eight Capital, noted on April 4 that the R1515W zone may see further expansion, writing that it is the “third land based zone, and occurs near surface (185m depth), potentially high grade, and open in several directions including along strike. R1515W zone is not included in current resources or PEA. Provides further upside for future economic studies.” He has a Buy rating and a target price of CA$2.25.
Analyst Rob Chang with Cantor Fitzgerald wrote on April 4, “While still early stage, the R1515W zone may provide yet another additional source of uranium pounds for Patterson Lake South. We reiterate our BUY recommendation.”
