Fission 3.0 Hits Off-Scale Radioactivity in New Discovery on PLN A1 Conductor

 

 

Kelowna, British Columbia -- November 21, 2022 -- FISSION 3.0 CORP (TSXV: FUU) ("Fission 3" or "the Company")  is pleased to announce that it has intersected extremely radioactive and off-scale (>65,000 cps) mineralization in a new uranium discovery occurring as massive pitchblende, pitchblende buttons and veins at the start of its fall drill program on its 100% owned Patterson Lake North "PLN" project in the southwest Athabasca Basin region of Saskatchewan, Canada.

 

Two diamond drills commenced on the previously undrilled 800 m northwest strike extension of the ~3 km long A1 conductor. A new uranium discovery has been made in the second drill hole of the fall program. PLN22-035 is a 730 m step-out from a weakly mineralized drillhole, PLN14-019, drilled in 2014. PLN22-035 targeted the ground Time Domain Electromagnetic (TDEM) A1 conductor.  Drill hole PLN22-034, the first hole of the fall drill program, intersected the A1 structure but no mineralization (>300cps) was noted.

 

 

Drilling Highlights:

 

PLN22-035 (line 00N)

  • 15.0 m total composite mineralization >300 cps over a 15.5 m interval (between 257.0 m to 272.5 m), including
    • 5.62 m of total composite mineralization >10,000 cps over a 6.3 m interval (between 259.0 m and 265.3 m including
      • 1.5 m of total off scale radioactivity (>65,000 cps) over a 2.0 m interval (between 262.0 m and 264.0 m)
  • the hole is still in progress

 

Raymond Ashley, Vice President Exploration, commented

 

"We are very excited about this new high-grade uranium discovery at the start of our fall drilling program on the A1 conductor. The drilling program is being immediately amended to further delineate this new off-scale uranium mineralization within a significant 15.0 m wide mineralized altered structural damage zone. I am very grateful to work with this dedicated and extremely capable exploration team, and very proud of this new discovery that we have all made."

The Companies innovative use of a sonic drill facilitates penetration through relatively deep and difficult overburden to set drill casing at shallow angles.  Consequently, the shallow inclined holes that intersect the steeply dipping lithologies provide reported intervals that are closer to true thickness.

Natural gamma radiation in the drill core that is reported in this news release was measured in counts per second (cps) using a handheld Radiation Solutions RS-125 scintillometer. The Company considers greater than 300 cps on the handheld spectrometer as anomalous, >10,000 cps as high grade and greater than 65,000 cps as off-scale. The reader is cautioned that scintillometer readings are not directly or uniformly related to uranium grades of the rock sample measured and should be used only as a preliminary indication of the presence of radioactive materials. All depth measurements reported are down-hole and true thickness are yet to be determined. Samples from the drill core are split in half on site and are standardized at 0.5 m lengths. One half of the split sample will be submitted to SRC Geoanalytical Laboratories (an SCC ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 Accredited Facility) in Saskatoon, SK. for lithogeochemical analysis using their "Uranium Package".
