CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (TSXV:CVV) reported that joint venture partner Northern Uranium has started its summer drill program at the NW Manitoba project in the Athabasca Basin. Two large core drills have been utilized: one testing the extension of the 100m by 300m hydrothermal alteration zone beneath Maguire Lake, while the other is targeting another gravity low.
Forum Uranium (TSXV:FDC) hit uranium in several holes within it initial drilling program at the Fir Island Project, located in the northern margin of the Athabasca basin and the regionally important Black Lake fault. Strong, anomalous boron and base metals, typically associated with unconformity uranium deposits, were also intersected. VP for Exploration, Ken Wheatley, said, “The combination of elevated uranium, boron, and base metals, combined with the intense alteration and structural setting, suggests that uranium-bearing fluids have been actively migrating in this area. It is our goal to find a near surface unconformity deposit, whether it be located at the unconformity at the base of the thrust fault, similar to the prolific McArthur River deposit, or within basement rocks similar to the Millennium deposit.”
