The first of three planned metallurgical drilling at the European Uranium Resources Ltd. (TSXV:EUU,FWB:TGPN) Kuriskova project intersected double the expected grade.
As quoted in the press release:
Drilling of three holes planned for metallurgical samples began in May and is expected to be completed in July 2012. The first of these holes, LE-K-73, was completed last week and intercepted higher than expected uranium grade in the Main Zone of the Kuriskova deposit.
The highlight of the hole is:
• 4.9 metres @ 0.85% eU3O8, including 1.3 metres @ 1.67% eU3O8, intersected at a depth from 455.9 to 460.8 metres from surface.
