- AR-16-64c2 (30 m up-dip and to the northeast from AR-15-44b) intersected 48.5 m at 11.15% U3O8 (491.0 to 539.5 m) including 3.0 m at 52.35% U3O8 (498.5 to 501.5 m).

Garrett Ainsworth, vice president, exploration and development at NexGen, commented:
The commencement of infill drilling of the higher grade A2 sub-zone has immediately returned five continuous GT’s ranging from 203 to 638 in four holes. These high grade assay intervals from holes AR-16-63c2 and -64c2 extend outside the current A2 high grade shell, on which the maiden NI43-101 inferred mineral resource was estimated as it only incorporates up to hole AR-15-62. Denser spaced drilling of the A2 sub-zone continues.
