Drill Holes Designed to Test for Expansion of the A-1 High-Grade Mineralized Zone
Kelowna, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 3, 2023) - Fission 3.0 Corp (TSV: FUU) (OTCQB: FISOF) ("Fission 3" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that mobilization for winter drilling has commenced at its 100% owned Patterson Lake North ("PLN") project. A 20-hole program 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) (see Press Release Dec 22, 2022).
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.
Raymond Ashley, Vice President Exploration, commented:
"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. 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 2 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 finalized.
