June 13, 2011 CanAlaska Uranium Commences Summer Geophysics
CanAlaska News Release - June 9 2011
Vancouver, Canada, June 13th, 2011 - CanAlaska
Uranium Ltd. (TSX.V -- CVV) ("CanAlaska" or the "Company") is
pleased to announce the commencement of two airborne ZTEM
geophysical surveys, and one ground geophysical resistivity
survey on its wholly-owned and joint-ventured projects in the
Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan. The ZTEM surveys provide a new
dimension for surveying electromagnetic targets, and provide
superior detail at depth.
The first ZTEM survey is to cover the Hodgson project. This
large project consists of six contiguous claims totaling 24,939
ha and is located in the east-central part of the Athabasca
basin, 27 kilometres northwest of the McArthur River mine and 21
kilometres west of the Cigar Lake deposit. Exploration to-date
includes lake sediment geochemistry and geophysics.
Reconnaissance ground AMT surveys confirmed a series of basement
conductors and indicated the presence of conductive zones in the
sandstones, structures thought to be related to uranium
The second ZTEM survey is to cover the western portion of the
Carswell structure, situated in CanAlaska's Carswell project.
CanAlaska has assembled a large land position, north and
north-west of the new discoveries by Areva and UEX, and west and
south of the historic Cluff Lake uranium mines, located within
the basement uplift. This survey is planned to provide
geophysical technical detail never before made possible.
Previous surveys in this area have been hampered by layers of
conductive units in the upper portions of the Athabasca
sandstone. The new ZTEM survey technique should make it possible
to provide images of the conductive horizons in the basement
below these conductive units, due to the longer wavelength
signals being used to collect data.
Elsewhere on CanAlaska's projects, a ground
geophysical crew has moved back to the West McArthur project (a
joint venture with MC Resources Canada Ltd.), to complete ground
resistivity surveying over Grid #1 and Grid #7. These surveys
are follow-ups to a successful airborne ZTEM survey undertaken
on the project last year.
CanAlaska President Peter Dasler comments: "Exploration for
mineral deposits in the Athabasca has benefited greatly from
recent advances in geophysical techniques. The commercialization
of the ZTEM survey method over the past year, and the
simultaneous use of new "SQUID" TDEM ground geophysics survey
equipment, provide a quantum leap in exploration targeting for
further unconformity uranium deposits."
Mr, Peter Dasler, P. Geo., is the qualified technical person
responsible for this news release.
About CanAlaska Uranium
CANALASKA URANIUM LTD. (CVV -- TSX.V, CVVUF -- OTCBB, DH7 --
Frankfurt) is undertaking uranium exploration in twenty one
uranium projects in Canada's Athabasca Basin -- the "Saudi
Arabia of Uranium". Since September 2004, the Company has
aggressively acquired one of the largest land positions in the
region, comprising over 2,500,000 acres (10,117 sq. km or 3,906
