Northern Uranium Commences Summer Drill Program

KELOWNA, BC, June 17, 2015 /CNW/ -Northern Uranium Corp. (TSXV : UNO) ("Northern Uranium" or, the "Company") is pleased to provide a progress report on its 50% owned North West Manitoba project.  The Company can earn up to an 80% interest in the project from CanAlaska Uranium Ltd (TSXV:CVV).

Northern Uranium has commenced its summer drill program at Maguire Lake utilizing two large core drills. 

One drill is testing the extension of the newly discovered 100 metre wide by 300 metre strike length hydrothermal alteration zone beneath Maguire Lake.  This zone is open both along strike and to depth and is characterized by intense clay-hematite alteration with elevated uranium values as determined by down hole gamma probing.   Unconformity style uranium mineralization within the Athabasca basin is associated with these hydrothermal alteration zones.

The second drill is targeting another gravity low with a sympathetic resistivity low and RadonEx radon-in-water anomaly adjacent to the shore of the lake.
