Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – May 5, 2022) – BASIN URANIUM CORP. (CSE: NCLR) (OTC Pink: BURCF) (FSE: 6NP0) (“Basin Uranium” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce it has completed the second diamond drill hole at the Mann Lake uranium project in Saskatchewan’s prolific Athabasca Basin. The Mann Lake project is located 25 km southwest of the McArthur River Mine, the largest high-grade uranium deposit in the world, and 15 km to the northeast along strike of Cameco’s Millennium uranium deposit.

Highlights

  • Second diamond drill hole was completed to a depth of 683 metres
  • Third diamond drill hole currently being collared ahead of drilling to target depth of 700 metres
  • Anomalous gamma probe and scintillometer readings were recorded at 660 metres depth with visual uranium mineralization (allanite) observed
  • Core logging and sampling remains ongoing with samples from first two holes being prepared for shipment to Saskatoon
  • Assimilation and review of all historical exploration remains ongoing with digitization of historic drilling underway

“We are pleased with the drilling progress to date, with the intersection of local visible mineralization in the second drill hole, especially considering the lack of historical drilling on the project,” commented Basin CEO Mike Blady. “The multi-phase drill program remains on time and budget, in addition to being fully funded. We eagerly await the results from the first samples which are being shipped for analysis.”

The second hole was collared and completed to a target depth of 683 metres, having intersected the unconformity at approximately 631 metres vertical depth entering a metasediment horizon that extended for 30 meters before transitioning into a granitic gneiss. Within the metasediment horizon a five-meter section of sericite-chlorite-hematite altered psammite was intersected. Local allanite mineralization surrounded by intense hematite alteration was noted within this horizon. The hole was designed to test an interpreted basement conductor, identified from a 2014 magnetotellurics (MT) resistivity survey, which corresponds with a ground UTEM conductor and magnetic low (interpreted metasediment basement) and along the edge of a gravity low. The hole is now being logged, sampled, and will be sent out with the first shipment of samples to the Saskatchewan Research Council for chemical assays. The rig has now moved to the third located and has been collared and will be coring to a planned depth of approximately 700 meters (see Figure 1).
