Energy, Oil & Gas + Uranium

February 6, 2023 (Source) – F3 Uranium Corp (TSXV: FUU) (OTCQB: FUUFF) (“F3” or “the Company“) is pleased to announce it has received final uranium assay results for the remaining fall 2022 drill holes at the JR Zone on the Patterson Lake North (“PLN”) Property where off-scale radioactivity was previously confirmed as high grade uranium mineralization (see Press Release Dec 22, 2022).

Drill hole PLN22-038 targeted up dip from hole PLS22-035 and returned an 11.0 m interval averaging 4.20% U3O8 including a high-grade 4.5 m interval averaging 9.8% U3O8, which further includes the ultra-high-grade core which assayed 22.9% over 1.5 m. PLN22-038 was the second of three mineralized holes completed on line 00N, in addition to a fourth mineralized hole on line 015S. Assay results from all mineralized drill holes of the fall 2022 program are disclosed below in Table 1.

Raymond Ashley, Vice President Exploration, commented:

“Assay results from these remaining three mineralized drill holes continue to validate the high grade nature of the JR Zone, situated within the A1 main shear zone. Strong results up dip of the discovery hole, with PLN22-038 and PLN22-041 respectively, as well as along strike to the south with PLN22-040 substantiate the JR Zone which is currently being further defined and expanded during the ongoing winter drill program.”

Drilling Highlights:

PLN22-038 (line 00N): mineralized intervals

  • 11.0 m @ 4.20% U3O8 (240.5 m to 251.5 m), including:
  • 4.5 m @ 9.8% U3O8 (244.0 m to 248.5 m), further including:
  • 1.5 m @ 22.9% U3O8 (245.5 m to 247.0 m)

The 20 hole Winter 2023 drill program is well underway, and the Company looks forward to providing an update.

Composited weight % U3O8 mineralized intervals are summarized in Table 1. Samples from the drill core are split in half sections on site. Where possible, samples are standardized at 0.5m down-hole intervals. One-half of the split sample is sent to SRC Geoanalytical Laboratories (an SCC ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 Accredited Facility) in Saskatoon, SK while the other half remains on site for reference. Analysis includes a 63 element suite including boron by ICP-OES, uranium by ICP-MS and gold analysis by ICP-OES and/or AAS. All depth measurements reported are down-hole and true thickness are yet to be determined but the Company estimates true thickness of the reported intervals in this news release to be close to reported interval widths.
