South Dufferin

The property comprises a single claim totaling 922 hectares and lies 13 km south of the Athabasca Basin margin, 32 km south of Cameco’s Centennial deposit and 15 km south of their Dufferin Lake Zone. The property lies within the Snowbird tectonic zone, which is demarcated by the Virgin River Shear Zone. The Virgin River Shear Zone is a fertile uranium corridor, host to numerous zones/showings, the most notable of which are the Centennial Uranium Deposit and the Dufferin Lake Uranium Zone. The basement rocks are comprised of Archean mafic/felsic gneisses of the Taltson domain, which were affected by middle and retrograde amphibolite facies regional metamorphism overprinting granulite facies regional metamorphism. Boulder samples near the property have returned anomalous uranium up to 0.099% U3O8, while anomalous gold mineralization up to 1 gram per tonne was found in outcrop grab samples near the property. Numerous drill-ready targets exist on the property, based upon the results of several high quality airborne gravity and VTEM surveys flown in the 2000’s by JNR Resources.
