Three rigs are at site and will commence drilling in the coming days. Drilling is planned continue throughout the summer to October 2014.
The program will focus primarily on expanding the area of basement mineralization at Arrow discovered in February 2014. In only 8 holes, the Arrow mineralized zone has extended to approximately 215m along a NE-SW strike zone and is open in all directions and at depth. Secondly, a heli-rig will focus on testing the identified geophysical targets in the western section of Rook I covering the Dirksen Trend, a known uranium mineralized fault zone.
Leigh Curyer, CEO commented, "The team has been eagerly awaiting the re-commencement of drilling at Arrow. The results at the end of the winter drilling program at Arrow are extremely encouraging with respect to the system hosting substantial basement mineralization at shallow depth. Assays from the winter program at Arrow are expected shortly. Further, the team is looking forward to testing the other land based identified geophysical targets on the highly prospective Rook I project."
