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.
Patterson Lake South Property
The 31,000 hectare (76,000 acres) PLS project is a 50%/50% Joint Venture held by Alpha Minerals Inc (AMW) and Fission Energy (FIS). The Joint Venture property is 100% owned with no underlying royalties or vendor payments. Fission is the Operator until April 1st 2014. The property 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.
Alpha "Area" Properties
Alpha Minerals also is carrying out exploration on a uranium project adjoining the old Cluff Lake Mine licence. The Company holds a large claim block over its Hook Lake property that covers the northern extensions of the fertile Patterson Lake and Derkson Conductor trends and is flanked by the Purepoint-Cameco- Areva JV and the Nexgen- Clermont project area. Further work is planned for this year on all properties.
Staking activity in the area surrounding the JV accelerated this year with more than twice the area occupied by the JV now covered with new tie on claims. Updated maps highlighting the drilling programs for PLS can be found on the Company's website at www.alphaminerals.ca.
