Vancouver, British Columbia, November 27, 2015 — CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. “the Company” (TSX-V: CVV; OTCQB: CVVUF; Frankfurt: DH7N) announces that it has been informed by Makena Resources that drilling crews are on site, and drilling is about to commence at the Patterson West project. Drilling will test an intense 1.5 km by 0.5 km gravity anomaly situated along a major geological domain boundary.
Peter Dasler, CanAlaska’s President, states “Patterson West has a large, well-defined target in basement rocks, a similar geological environment that hosts the nearby Triple R and Arrow uranium discoveries. The southwest Athabasca Basin has the potential to host several major uranium deposits along a series of emerging exploration belts.”
Patterson West is located adjacent to the PLS claims of Fission Uranium Corp, and 10 km northwest of their Triple R deposit. The Arrow discovery of NexGen Energy Ltd, is approximately 15 km east of the main gravity anomaly on the property. Like Triple R and Arrow, the exploration target at Patterson West is just off the edge of the Athabasca Basin.
Previous field work by Makena identified multiple geophysical anomalies. A large gravity anomaly measuring 1.5 km long by 0.5 km wide was discovered, this correlates with magnetic lineaments as well as with multiple VTEM conductive anomalies (see April 13 2015 news release).
CanAlaska owns a 100% interest in three properties in the southwest region of the Athabasca Basin. Makena is currently earning a 50% interest in the Patterson West property by carrying out staged work programs totaling $1.4 million, cash payments of $100,000, as well as issuances of 3,050,000 shares and 1,000,000 warrants of Makena.
CanAlaska also announces that the current financing initiative announced October 28, 2015 has been postponed, pending further corporate developments and market support.
