Fission Uranium: New Radon Survey Identifies Strongest Anomaly to Date
KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/13Empire Industries Ltd. (TSX-V: EIL)
today announced that its Dynamic Structures business unit has been
awarded a contract to manufacture a major amusement ride for one of
the leading amusement park owners in the United States. This prestigious
contract is valued in excess of $30 million and will be executed over
the next two years.
“This contract is important for Empire because it is the third such award
and is a confirmation of our ability to produce the most complicated, enjoyable
and safe ride systems in the world,” said Guy Nelson, Chief Executive Officer
of Empire Industries. “These type of complex projects are where Dynamic
Structures excels and we are delighted to have our customer endorse our
capabilities through this contract award.”
-- Strongest radon-in-water anomaly to date (13.3 pCl/L)
- located approximately 170m NE and along strike of
the R780E radon anomaly -- 6 new radon anomalies, in addition to the 5 anomalies
identified during the initial survey, all associated
with known conductors and offsetting structures -- The eastern-most radon anomaly located some 1,500 meters
east-northeast along strike of the R780E zone has been
confirmed, refined and extended -- The radon survey appears to have successfully detected
uranium sources at greater than 50 meters depth that
justify further drill testing
Ross McElroy, President, COO, and Chief Geologist for Fission,
"Radon survey results have been used by Fission's technical team to great
success at PLS and the technique was instrumental in identifying the first pass
holes at two of the three discovery zones. These survey results have
delivered new and highly promising targets as we continue to plan for our
Summer drill program."
An updated radon map with the location of anomalies can be found at
the Company's website www.fissionuranium.com.
Radon surveying of bottom waters and lake sediment at Patterson Lake was
initiated at the beginning of the recent 2013 winter drill program. This news
release covers new data collected in April, following drilling, which extends
the original survey along the Paterson Lake Conductor Corridor. The
original survey provided the drill targets for high grade discovery holes at
the R390E and R780E uranium zones, discovered this winter.
The Joint Venture has been granted an extension of the previous winter drilling
permit. Drilling from barges on the lake is planned, and permitting of this work
is in progress. Radon surveys will be continued next winter to refine current
anomalies and extend the survey area in the exploration for further anomalies,
particularly in areas, defined by geophysical methods, of apparent cross cutting
structures within the Patterson Conductor Corridor
Summary of Radon Anomalies
A total of eleven targets have been identified, including six along the southern
conductor in the Patterson Lake corridor. In the farthest east area of this
conductor on Patterson Lake, there are two radon anomalies close to
two drill holes, selected earlier from geophysical data, and which intersected
clay alteration. This is a priority area for follow-up drilling this summer.
One target lies between the path of the South Conductor and the Central
conductor. This is a central area crossed by Line 1320 E where the
trace of South Conductor has been interrupted and the trace of the Central
Conductor is showing a strong flexure, which is interpreted as an important
north-south cross structure.
Three targets are indicated on the Central Conductor, with one located near Line
960 E due north of the zone R780E and the other two lie on each side of
Line 1920 E.
A further target lies on the south side of the Northern Conductor, close to
Line 1440 E.
Patterson Lake South Property
The 31,039 hectare PLS project is a 50%/50% Joint Venture held by Fission
Uranium Corp. and Alpha Minerals Inc (AMW). Fission is the Operator. PLS
is accessible by road with primary access from all-weather Highway 955, which
runs north to the former Cluff Lake mine, (greater than 60M lbs of U3O8
produced), and passes through the nearby UEX-Areva Shea Creek
discoveries located 50km to the north, currently under active exploration
and development. An updated map highlighting the extended radon survey
at PLS can be found on the Company's website at http://www.fissionuranium.
