Madison Metals Outlines Priority Uranium Drill Targets at Khan Project in Namibia, Africa

Madison Metals Inc. (“Madison”) is pleased to provide an update regarding ongoing geologic mapping being done in advance of a maiden 2024 drill program at the Company’s Khan Project at Madison West in Namibia’s highly prospective Erongo uranium province.

The mapping program consisted of infill geological mapping along with groundscintillometer and spectrometer surveys over the previously announced Anomaly 5 drill targets. Madison’s original surveying was completed at 40 meter (m) line spacing with 10 m station spacing. The Company has added new drill targets at Anomaly 5 by surveying at 20 m line spacing. The results of the recent mapping and surveying program are an increasedsurface expression of radiometric D-type leucogranites (favourable rock type mined at Rossing). In particular, the surface expression of mineralized leucogranites around Trenches 4 and 5 and north of Trench 3 has increased to thicknesses of up to 40 m.

The mapping campaign accomplished several key goals, including:

  • Outlining priority drill targets
  • A base map of surface features to guide drill targeting
  • Identifying and delineating mineralized surface lithologies
  • Highlighting the surface continuity of mineralized D-type leucogranites

As previously reported, surface sample assays at Anomaly 5 included 9.0 m grading 0.25% U3O8 (including 1.0 m grading 1.28%) in Trench 4 (KM5TR004), 9.0 m grading 0.39% U3O8 in Trench 5 (KM5TR005) and 5.0 m grading 0.12% U3O8 in Trench 3 (KM5TR003).The assays from the six trenches confirm the surface continuity of mineralized alaskites at Anomaly 5, with uranium grades above 0.1% U3O8 (see Company news release on March 4, 2024).
