Now, the on-site diamond drill will perform preliminary program by analyzing near surface targets till March 25th. CanAlaska will also move the drill and perform around three  weeks of drilling at the nearby project.

The diamond drill will arrive at Fond Du Lac in April to examine additional targets and mineralization linked to RC drilling. It also tests areas of CanAlaska where it previously cut 0.32% U3O8 over 40.4 meters at basement rocks, which is present at the east of the historically defined shallow Fond Du Lac uranium deposit.
