High-grade uranium mineralization encountered in these drill holes occurs primarily in basement rocks that are a heterogeneous mix of variably clay-altered to clay-replaced pelitic gneiss, graphitic pelitic gneiss, granitic pegmatite and microgranite.
The electromagnetic conductor was explained by graphitic pelitic basement rocks in 6 of the 13 drill holes.
RL08-06 intersected a radioactive fracture approximately 39 metres below the unconformity within a pelitic unit which returned 102 ppm U over 0.3 m from 150.0 and 150.3 m.
RL08-02 encountered a radioactive structure within pelitic basement rocks that returned 180 ppm U over 1.0 m from 118.0 to 119.0 m.
Their Government tho ', thanks fome pelitic neighbours.
- within a magnetic low believed to represent pelitic basement rocks, a typical host rock for economic uranium mineralization
