VANCOUVER, Nov. 9, 2011 /CNW/ - ESO (TSX-V:ESO) is pleased to announce that Patterson Geophysical have started work on the ESO- Fission Energy Corp (TSX-V:FIS) Joint Venture in the first proposed source area of the high grade uranium boulders found in the Cree Moraine in June and October 2011. This work is to confirm historic ground EM conductor positions accurately and to test those EM conductors and areas of magnetic lows in the area for resistivity targets. The resistivity targets could reflect the type of alteration surrounding uranium mineralization.

Following a review of the Patterson Lake South data sets, ESO Uranium and its Joint Venture partner Fission Energy conclude that very useful information can be developed by carrying out an exploratory drill program. This would test for radioactive glacial till derived from scouring of the bedrock source area(s) and spread east-south east (down ice) from the more compact geometry of high grade mineralization targets. The radioactive till will be tested towards the up ice direction in order to pinpoint the source(s). It is expected that the radioactive debris in the till will be more concentrated and more radioactive as the source is approached. The initial drill targets will be selected along the down-ice side of resistivity targets and close to areas of apparent cross-cutting structures that are flagged by discontinuities and flexures in the conductors. The detailed positioning of drill target locations will be made following field processing of the geophysical data from the two surveys.

Drill Target Basics:

  • General ice direction is from ENE - Boulders have probably come from that direction
  • The largest boulders of the boulder field are found in two clusters on the WSW end of the Patterson Conductor Corridor
  • Historical drill holes CLU 6-79 and CLU 12-79 bracket a section of the Conductor Corridor that shows possible disruption of conductors by cross cutting structures associated with radon anomalies in soils
  • Gamma logging of the holes could identify lower tills containing natural radioactive uranium debris if there is a significant uranium deposit up ice.

The contractor for the drilling is Aggressive Drilling and a 1000 meter initial program with holes to about 100 m depth is planned. The start date for the drilling is mid-November and is expected to be completed by mid-December.
