(Kitco News) - IsoEnergy (TSX-V: ISO | OTCQX: ISENF) today reported exceptionally high-grade results from the final assays of its summer drilling program completed in late October at the Hurricane zone.
The Hurricane zone is a recent discovery of high-grade uranium mineralization on the Company’s 100% owned Larocque East property in the Eastern Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan.
South extension drill hole LE20-76 intersected 7.5m of uranium mineralization that averages 38.8% U3O8, including 3.5m of off-scale radioactivity that averages 74.0% U3O8.
The most southerly drill hole on section 4460E, LE20-77, intersected 8.0m of uranium mineralization that averages 2.6% U3O8.
The three westernmost sections are open to the south.
CEO Craig Parry commented: “Ending the program with the best drill hole to date is a remarkable way to conclude our summer drilling program, which has demonstrated that Hurricane is a major new high-grade uranium discovery. We look forward to additional high-grade drilling in the New Year and continuing to deliver for our shareholders.”
