Northeast A3 Shear
Step out scissor hole AR-17-136c2 (170 m northeast and up-dip from AR-15-57c2 and 70 m northeast and up-dip from the edge of the A3 High Grade Domain) intersected 26.0 m of total composite mineralization including 6.7 m of total composite off-scale radioactivity (>10,000 to >61,000 cps) featuring 5.3 m of continuous massive to semi-massive pitchblende including 2.0 m at a minimum-of-greater-than 61,000 cps within a 59.0 m section (399.5 to 458.5 m). This hole is marked by dense accumulations of massive to semi-massive pitchblende mineralization and is the strongest zone of mineralization encountered in the A3 shear to date. This newly discovered area is open to the northeast.
