1.34% U3O8 over 5.65 metres at property being explored jointly with Cameco
Drills turning at CanAlaska Uranium’s (TSXV:CVV) West McArthur project in Saskatchewan, Canada, have started to bear fruit.
The company last Wednesday announced the first results of its 2017 drill program on the property which started on July 20.
It said a calibrated probe measured the uranium intercept, from drill hole WMA-042, at 1.34% uranium oxide (U3O8) over 5.65 metres.
“The uranium mineralization is disseminated in the basal sandstone column near the unconformity and is footwall to an altered fracture zone with perched mineralization 80 metres higher in the drill hole. A wedge hole from WMA-042 is being drilled to test the optimum target location,” CVV said in the August 30 press release.
