- Within the context of the Company's own exploration work and utilizing results from all publicly available geological, geophysical and geochemical data, Purepoint has produced an updated interpretation of the Patterson Corridor geology and structure.
- The data suggests a primary graphitic shear is associated with the known uranium mineralization within a wider shear zone known as the Patterson Lake Corridor.
- The highly prospective mineralized shear has been interpreted for over 45 kilometres from south of Fission Uranium's Triple R deposit to deep within the Athabasca Basin where sandstone thicknesses exceed 800 metres.
