("Fusion" or "the Company") (ASX: FSN, TSX: FNS) is pleased to present its
quarterly report for the period ending 30 September 2008, during which time
the Company has continued to advance its uranium projects located in northwest
Queensland. Highlights during the quarter included:
- Assay results returned from reverse circulation ("RC") drilling at
the Duke Batman Prospect continue to intersect multiple stacked high-
grade mineralised horizons, including:
- FVN131: 34m @ 1,720ppm (0.172%) U(3)O(8)
- FVN112: 14m @ 2,130ppm (0.213%) U(3)O(8)
- FVN133: 11m @ 1,110ppm (0.111%) U(3)O(8)
- FVN123: 10m @ 953ppm (0.095%) U(3)O(8)
- In addition, assay results returned from diamond drilling at Duke
Batman have confirmed style and continuity of uranium mineralisation,
- FVD002a 46.4m @ 630ppm (0.063%) U(3)O(8)
- FVD005: 14.2m @ 1,980ppm (0.198%) U(3)O(8)
- FVD001: 8.7m @ 1,974ppm (0.197%) U(3)O(8)
- FVD004: 8.35m @ 1,881ppm (0.188%) U(3)O(8)
- Assay results returned from diamond drilling at the Honey Pot
Prospect have confirmed style and continuity of uranium
mineralisation, and include:
- FVD006a: 14.0m @ 689ppm (0.069%) U(3)O(8)
- FVD007: 8.6m @ 884ppm (0.088%) U(3)O(8)
- These diamond drilling results at Duke Batman and Honey Pot have
added valuable geological and specific gravity data for the Company's
initial resource calculation.
- The Company is currently finalising a uranium mineral resource
estimate in accordance with JORC and NI 43-101 for both the Duke
Batman and Honey Pot Prospects, following the receipt of all RC and
diamond results from initial resource drilling.
- Assay results returned from exploratory RC drilling undertaken at the
new Sunshine and Bohra Prospects have identified potential for
further uranium mineralisation at these Prospects.
- The Company appointed Mr. Michael Raven as Director.
- At the end of the quarter the Company had cash reserves of
