January 8, 2024 (Source) — F3 Uranium Corp (TSXV: FUU) (OTCQB: FUUFF) (“F3” or “the Company“) is pleased to announce that drill mobilization for the winter drilling program is underway, and ground geophysics has already resumed at its 100%-owned Patterson Lake North (“PLN”) Project. The 2024 work is fully funded and budgeted at $16M and consists of ground geophysics and drilling of approximately 55 drill holes totaling 24,000m. Exploration efforts will initially focus on the A1 shear hosting the JR Zone and the B1 area 3km south of the JR Zone.
Sam Hartmann, VP of Exploration commented:
“We are excited to set out on this aggressive winter program aimed at JR Zone expansion and discovery of additional mineralized zones along the 5km long A1 and parallel B1 shear zones. Increasingly prospective geology with many of the signatures commonly associated with uranium mineralization was recognized in the fall drilling along the B1 area, 3km south of the JR Zone. This includes intensely brecciated, faulted and clay altered Athabasca Sandstone with evidence of a cross cutting structure with significant vertical displacement, highly anomalous boron up to 10,000 ppm in the lower sandstone as well as strongly graphitic, clay altered and structurally deformed basement rocks (see NR dated December 18, 2024.) The extensive structural complexity associated with large-scale hydrothermal alteration and accompanying anomalous pathfinder element geochemistry including uranium values are all features that highlight the strong potential the B1 Area.”
Phase 1 of the Dias Geophysics 3D-DCIP ground resistivity survey, which is nearing completion, was carried out in late fall over the JR Zone and A1 shear, as well as the parallel B1 shear zone; Dias is currently back on site and has resumed current injections. Drilling efforts at the B1 area will focus on targets developed through integration of 3D-DCIP ground resistivity and ground EM data, along with drill core geochemistry.
About Patterson Lake North:
The Company’s 4,078-hectare 100% owned Patterson Lake North property (PLN) is located just within the south-western edge of the Athabasca Basin, within 25km of Fission Uranium’s Triple R and NexGen Energy’s Arrow high-grade world class uranium deposits; an area which is poised to become the next major area of development for new uranium operations in northern Saskatchewan. PLN is accessed by Provincial Highway 955.
