Drill hole PLS013-053 was collared as a vertical hole, but deviated slightly to a dip of -86.2 degrees to the SE. The hole was drilled to a depth of 282.6m. The hole is collared 15m grid west of PLS13-038. A thin cap of Devonian sandstone was encountered from 49.4m to 51.4m, overlying a quartzitic gneiss to a depth of 57.5m. The quartzitic gneiss was underlain by an intensely altered graphitic pelitic gneiss hosting multiple discrete graphitic shear zones. The hole was terminated at a depth of 282.6m in barren unaltered semi-pelitic gneiss. Moderate to strong clay alteration is present from 51.4m to 159.3m, flanked above and below by weak to moderate clay and chlorite alteration.
Assay results so far from holes PLS13-038, 051 and 053 have identified a trend of particularly high-grade uranium mineralization over approx. 30m of strike length on the 390E zone.
Split core samples were submitted to SRC Geoanalytical Laboratories (an SCC ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 Accredited Facility) of Saskatoon for assay analysis, which includes a 63 element ICP-OES, uranium by fluorimetry (partial digestion), and boron. Samples within mineralized intervals and any samples which return greater than 500ppm U, are assayed for weight % U3O8, as well as fire assayed for gold. Further assay results will be released when received.

The 31,039 hectare PLS project is a 50%/50% Joint Venture held by Fission Energy Corp. and Alpha Minerals Inc (AMW). Fission is the Operator. PLS is accessible by road with primary access from all-weather Highway 955, which runs north to the former Cluff Lake mine, (greater than 60M lbs of U3O8 produced), and passes through the nearby UEX-Areva Shea Creek discoveries located 50km to the north, currently under active exploration and development.
