Kelowna, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 24, 2023) - F3 Uranium Corp. (TSV: FUU) (OTCQB: FUUFF) ("F3" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that the results of the airborne MobileMT electromagnetic survey that was flown over the PLN property this summer indicates that the prospective conductive corridor which hosts the JR Zone discovery at its north end now has a one third increase in total strike length to 4.9 km, displaying an extension of 1.3 km further to the SE than the previously defined historical A1 and parallel and offset A1B conductors (see plan map below).
Mobilization has commenced for a 3D ground resistivity survey to obtain a signature over the JR Zone and to develop targets for drilling in 2024 over the A1B conductor, ~3km south of the JR Zone, and the newly defined southeastern 1.3km extension to the conductive corridor. Recent results of ongoing drilling at A1B have identified anomalous radioactivity along with very intense alteration in the sandstone and basement (see NR dated October 15, 2023) which are characteristics often observed in proximity to mineralization. The area to be surveyed with 3d resistivity is based on an interpretation of the 2D results of the airborne MobileMT electromagnetic survey. A 3D inversion of the data being produced by Geotexera is anticipated to provide additional insight and a basis for planning additional ground geophysical surveys to be carried out early next winter.
Raymond Ashley, President, commented:
"Drilling continues at the JR Zone filling in up and down dip on section lines where the mineralization remains open. A second drill is also continuing to focus on exploration drilling to the south of the JR Zone along the A1B conductor where encouraging signs for potential proximal mineralization are being encountered. We are excited that the ground 3D resistivity survey is about to commence to provide a signature over the JR Zone and to help define targets for the aggressive drilling programs coming in 2024 that will allow us to home in on the next mineralized zone along the newly extended A1 and A1B conductive corridor. We are looking forward to releasing our first assay results for the summer program in the near term."
About Patterson Lake North:
The Company's 4,078-hectare 100% owned Patterson Lake North property (PLN) is located just within the south-western edge of the Athabasca Basin in proximity to Fission Uranium's Triple R and NexGen Energy's Arrow high-grade world class uranium deposits which is poised to become the next major area of development for new uranium operations in northern Saskatchewan. PLN is accessed by Provincial Highway 955, which transects the property, and the new JR Zone uranium discovery is located 23km northwest of Fission Uranium's Triple R deposit.
