Kivalliq Energy Reports Assay Results from Eastern Extension Zone

Kivalliq Energy has announced the diamond drilling assay results from the Eastern Extension zone, which is situated in the Angilak property in Canada.

The company has intersected 0.07% copper, 31.23 g/t silver, 0.75% U3O8, 0.46% molybdenum over 1.4 m in the hole 11-LC-084, 0.16% copper, 61.40 g/t silver, 2.33% U3O8, 0.57% molybdenum over 0.4 m in the hole 11-LC-092, 0.09% copper, 27.75 g/t silver, 1.00% U3O8, 0.39% molybdenum over 1.0 m in the hole 11-LC-093, 0.06% copper, 134.63 g/t silver, 2.65% U3O8, 1.67% molybdenum over 0.5 m in the hole 11-LC-094, and 0.55% copper, 16.63 g/t silver, 1.84% U3O8, 0.07% molybdenum over 1.0 m in the hole 11-LC-096.

2011 Drill Plan Map

The company has primarily identified this Eastern Extension zone by examining a linear VLF EM conductor, trending northwest, resembling Lac Cinquante with six reverse circulation (RC) drill holes from three set-ups. It arranged two diamond drill rigs to outline the Eastern Extension zone, through drilling of 6,143 m totaling 44 holes from 13 set-ups.

The currently available results have included the primary assay results of 24 drill holes from the Eastern Extension. The company has drilled 550 m of strike length at this zone, which begins from around 400 m along strike and east of the resource region of the Lac Cinquante main zone.

The company drilled all holes to the northeast direction. Abnormal radioactivity was found in 39 holes out of 44 at a vertical depth between 34 and 257 m. Diamond and RC drilling have validated the Lac Cinquante structure extension towards the east with the existence of uranium mineralization in a zone that dips approximately 72° to the southwest direction. Further assay results from the Eastern Extension zone are pending.

Mineralization resembles that discovered in Lac Cinquante zone, which initially occurs in the carbonate-chlorite-graphite-hematite altered tuff unit. Uranium is connected with carbonate-quartz veining, sulphides and breccia in the clipped host rock.
