Senator Minerals Inc. is pleased to announce that the Phase 1 radon gas survey at the Patterson North East (PNE) Uranium Project, located in the western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, is set to commence on August 15th, 2017.
The survey calls for up to 400 individual gas collection stations to be deployed in an array over the PNE Conductive Zone, which was previously confirmed by both airborne and ground geophysical surveys. In addition, each station will be evaluated with a spectrometer for the presence of radioactive materials. Radon gas, which is a product of uranium decay, gives a direct correlation to the presence of subsurface uranium. The survey should take between four to six weeks and results should be available within two to three weeks thereafter.
The PNE project covers approximately 531 hectares, directly adjoining the easternmost boundary of Fission 3.0's Patterson Lake North (PLN) project. The PNE project is located approximately 163 kilometres north of the town of La Loche, and approximately 48 kilometres south of the decommissioned Cluff Lake mine site. The project is accessible by ground vehicle from La Ronge via Saskatchewan Highways 2, 155, 165 and 955.
