NexGen Energy Ltd.(TSX:NXE, OTCQX:NXGEF) is pleased to report radioactivity results on seven holes from our ongoing summer drilling program on our 100% owned, Rook I property, Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan.
Mineralized zones in the A1, A2 and A3 shears continue to be confirmed and rapidly expanded by drilling. In the higher grade A2 sub-zone (the “Sub-Zone”), AR-16-96c2 intersected dense accumulations of massive to semi-massive pitchblende both within and outside of the A2 High Grade Domain marked by 60.5 m of total composite mineralization including 13.4 m of off-scale radioactivity (>10,000 to >61,000 cps). In addition, AR-16-96c3 intersected 80.0 m of total composite mineralization including 12.45 m of off-scale radioactivity also in the A2 shear. A new zone of high grade mineralization has now been delineated outside the lower margin of the A2 High Grade Domain defined in the maiden Arrow Deposit 43-101 Inferred Mineral Resource estimate.
