Pitchstone Exploration has received the latest analytical results from reverse circulation (RC) drilling program at the Marble Ridge zone. This is a calcrete-hosted uranium mineralized zone on the Dome property in Namibia.
In February 2011, the company has completed 28 drill holes to check out on the 2010 drilling results, which cut a horizontal, near surface layer of the uranium and vanadium mineralization in calcrete.
12 of the newly completed drill holes are mineralized and so far the number of mineralized intersections at Marble Ridge reaches 20.
From the drilling results, the company has confirmed the existence of uranium and vanadium mineralization at Marble Ridge in a calcrete paleochannel, which is currently predicted to be at least 1,900 meters long and 200 meters wide. The mineralization remains open along the strike. The mineralization potential has encouraged Pitchstone to discover further mineralized paleochannels within the 500 Km2 Dome North areas. The company has planned for additional drilling at Marble Ridge and at other uranium targets.
