Atomic Minerals Corporation announced the commencement a high-resolution Airborne Magnetic Survey at its 6,556 Ha Lloyd Lake uranium project, located in the prolific Athabasca Basin, near the village of La Loche, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Clive Massey Atomic Minerals CEO and President commented “We are pleased to have commenced the airborne survey over Lloyd Lake, following up on a complex array of subsurface conductors coincident with surface radiometric anomalies uncovered during historic exploration programs. We anticipate the magnetics will assist in refining drill targets within the conductors for an initial drilling program later this summer.“
KBM Resources Group of Thunder Bay, Ontario has been engaged to fly a 684-line km fixed wing magnetic survey over the Lloyd Lake Project. The Company anticipates the airborne magnetics will assist in identifying faults and folds assumed to be associated with other significant markers for uranium mineralization, including subsurface conductors and radiometric anomalies.
About the Lloyd Lake Project
The Lloyd Lake Project lies immediately south of the western Athabasca basin approximately 90 km SE of Fission Uranium’s Patterson Lake project. Lloyd Lake was extensively explored by Western Athabasca Syndicate in 2013 as part of the Preston property, generating a significant dataset, which includes: airborne EM-magnetic and radiometric surveys, follow-up prospecting, systematic lake-bottom sediment sampling and lake-bottom water sampling for radon gas analysis, and broad soil, biogeochemical and radon-in-soil surveys, generally at 100 m to 200 m sample spacing and 200 m to 400 m line spacing. Radon gas is a decay product of uranium with anomalous concentrations indicative of potential uranium occurrences. Subsequent exploration concentrated on anomalous areas identified by the earlier surveys, and included phases of mapping and prospecting, a versatile time-domain electromagnetic (VTEM plus) and aeromagnetic survey and an airborne radiometric-VLF-EM and magnetic survey. Atomics’ technical team is in the process of compiling and reviewing the various datasets to generate targets for upcoming exploration.
