Bayswater Defines Uranium Mineralization Grading up to 7.55% U3O8 at North Thelon Basin Projectadmin
Bayswater Uranium Corporation report that assay results have been received from samples taken from its North Thelon Project in Nunavut, Canada. Uranium mineralization was found in outcrop and boulders at the Company’s Itza and Amer West claim blocks, and the discovery of this mineralization was described in the news release dated July 28, 2008.
Sampling of angular boulders and outcrops of strongly radioactive interbedded feldspathic sandstone and siltstone in 2007 and 2008 has resulted in a total of 41 samples assaying greater than 1000 ppm U (0.124 % U3O8). Of these 41 mineralized samples, 3 samples yielded assays greater than 1% U3O8 with one angular boulder grading 7.55% U3O8. These mineralized samples define a horizon of feldspathic sandstone-siltstone that is continuous over 40 km on Bayswater’s land holdings. A high priority drill target has been defined at Amer West where 14 samples of boulders and subcrop ranging from 0.124% to 4.32% U3O8 are present.
“We are very encouraged with the grades of this newly discovered mineralization,” states Victor Tanaka, Chief Operating Officer of Bayswater. “Amer West is a strong drill target.”
The North Thelon Project consists of a series of properties centered about 150 km northwest of the hamlet of Baker Lake in Nunavut. The exploration targets are unconformity related uranium deposits, similar to the Kiggavik and Andrew Lake deposits currently being developed by Areva and partners, and sediment hosted uranium deposits, similar to the Oklo and Shinkolobwe deposits of West Africa.
The Company’s exploration activities are conducted under the supervision of George M. Leary, M.Sc. P. Eng. (BC), President of the Company, and Victor Tanaka, B.Sc. P.Geo. (B.C.), Chief Operating Officer of the Company. Both are qualified persons under NI 43-101. Victor Tanaka is the qualified person responsible for the technical information in this news release.
