NexGen Energy Ltd. (TSXV:NXE, OTCQX:NXGEF) reported  further results from our on-going six rig 30,000 m winter 2016 drill program on our 100% owned Rook I Property, Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan.

According to the company’s press release:


A2 Shear:

• AR-16-63c2 (19 m up-dip and southwest from AR-15-44b and 14 m down-dip and northeast from AR- 15-62) intersected 138.0 m of total composite mineralization including 40.85 m of total composite off-scale radioactivity (10,000 to >61,000 cps) within a 206.5 m section (439.5 to 645.5 m) featuring 13.85 m with a minimum of >61,000 cps in the Sub-Zone. The mineralization was defined by wide intervals of dense accumulations of massive pitchblende

Garrett Ainsworth, Vice-President, Exploration and Development, commented:

Results from hole AR-16-63c2 are simply stunning, and represent the strongest radioactivity ever recorded at the Arrow zone. The continuity of mineralization in the higher grade A2 sub-zone is clearly evident. Furthermore, this zone remains open and will be tested further this winter together with exploring for other potential ‘sub-zones’ at Arrow. Hole -63c2 has a similar radioactivity profile to AR-15-62 (returned continuous GT of 787), except it has nearly seven times as much minimum >61,000 cps. The gamma probe comparison between the two holes really says it all.
