PLS PROPERTY ADVANCED TO DRILL STAGE
Fission Energy Corp. (“Fission or “the Company”) and its 50% Joint Venture (JV) partner ESO Uranium Corp., announce that Aggressive Drilling Ltd., of Prince Albert Saskatchewan, has been contracted to complete a ten hole, 1,000m drill program, scheduled to begin at the PLS Property in mid-November.
The initial drill locations selected target shallow basement mineralization along the down-ice flanks of resistivity targets, close to areas of apparent cross-cutting structures that are flagged by discontinuities and flexures in the conductors. The detailed positioning of final drill target locations will be made following analysis of the data obtained from the geophysical surveys now underway.
Patterson Geophysics Ltd. has been contracted to carry out a ground geophysical survey consisting of 30.8 line-km of horizontal loop electromagnetic (HLEM or max-Man) and DC-Resistivity. The ground geophysics program is designed to accurately confirm historic ground Electromagnetic (EM) conductors, and test areas along the conductors for resistivity targets that may reflect, possibly reflecting bedrock hydrothermal alteration.
Drill Target Review:
General ice direction is from the east-northeast – Boulders appear to have been deposited down-ice from that direction
The largest high grade boulders, which to date have yielded values as high as 39.6% U308 (see press release dated July 27, 2011) are found in two clusters on the west-southwest end of the Patterson Conductor Corridor
Historical drill holes CLU 6-79 and CLU 12-79, completed by Canadian Occidental Petroleum Ltd. in the 1970s, bracket a section of the Conductor Corridor that indicates possible disruption of conductors by cross cutting structures associated with radon anomalies in soils
Drilling is expected to be completed before the end of the year. Each drill hole will be surveyed downhole for radioactivity with a Mount Sopris 2PGA-1000 Gamma/SP probe. Drill core will be split and sent to SRC Geoanalytical Laboratories for analysis. Results will be provided when available.

The Patterson Lake South Property is a 50%/50% Joint Venture held with ESO Uranium Corp. The Patterson Lake South Property is accessible by road with primary access from all weather Highway 955, which runs north to the former Cluff Lake mine, (>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.
