Senator Minerals Inc. is pleased to announce that the Company has received radon gas results from Alpha Track Labs of Vancouver, British Columbia for its Carter Lake and PNE uranium projects, both of which are located on the west side of the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan.
A total of 158 sensors from the Carter Lake project and 184 from the PNE project were evaluated. At both projects, sensors were deployed in arrays covering large extents of subsurface conductive anomalies, which were identified through geophysical interpretations. The investigation of subsurface conductive zones that correlate strongly with structural breaks is the gold standard for uranium exploration in the Athabasca.
Senator’s exploration team is encouraged by the results, which ranged from a high of 29 T/mm2 to a low of <1 T/mm2, as they suggest that both the Carter Lake and PNE target zones host anomalous concentrations of uranium. Anomalous radon gas, which is a product of uranium decay, gives a direct correlation to the presence of subsurface uranium.
The Company is in the process of reconciling the radon gas dataset with both geophysical and prospecting reports and intends to present a full analysis and follow up proposed work plan, that will form the basis of the Company’s intended winter exploration program.
Regarding the results, Peter Born, P.Geo. commented, “the Company is very pleased with the results as it represents another important step in the exploration of these highly prospective projects.”
