NexGen Energy (TSX:NXE) has reported radioactivity results from eight holes from its on-going summer drilling program on its 100 percent owned Rook I property in the Athabasca Basin.
As quoted in the press release:
Drilling at the Arrow Deposit continues to intersect extensive off-scale radioactivity in the higher grade A2 subzone (the “Sub-Zone”). Highlighting this batch of results, scissor hole AR-16-98c2 which was drilled towards the northwest and collared at the southeast, intersected 85.0 m of total composite mineralization including dense accumulations of massive pitchblende largely outside the margin of the A2 High Grade Domain. This hole intersected 10.05 m of off-scale radioactivity including 5.75 m of minimum-greater-than-61,000 cps radioactivity of which 4.5 m was continuous.
Additionally, holes AR-16-92c3 and -93c2 drilled significant intervals of massive to semi-massive pitchblende in the A2 shear. These holes, and the others reported in this news release, are expected to provide for further definition of the A2 High Grade Domain.
Furthermore, drilling in the new high grade zone within the A1 shear continues to return strong visible uranium mineralization where AR-16-98c1 intersected 44.5 m of total composite mineralization including 9.45 m of offscale radioactivity making it the most strongly mineralized hole drilled into the A1 shear to date.
