CanAlaska Uranium has begun diamond drilling at the main Fond Du Lac ("FDL") project. The new target discovered during the current reverse circulation (RC) drilling will be analyzed in this drilling phase. At present, CanAlaska has received Cdn$13 million as fund and strong partnerships.
CanAlaska Joint ventures with Fond Du Lac Denesuline First Nation to form the FDL project. The RC drilling has found number of strong hematization zones both above and below the unconformity. These numerous zones relate elevated radiometric background and clay-filled shear zones.
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.
