Fission JV Hits 43.0m @1.93% U3O8, Including 5.0m @9.91% U3O8 at R390E Zone

Wide intersections and high-grades returned from all five holes

KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 14, 2013) - FISSION URANIUM CORP. (TSX VENTURE:FCU)(OTCQX:FCUUF)(FRANKFURT:2FU) ("Fission" or "the Company") the Operator, and its Joint Venture partner Alpha Minerals Inc. are pleased to report assay results from five holes in Zone R390E at their Patterson Lake South (PLS) property, Saskatchewan. Holes PLS13-078, PLS13-081, PLS13-085, PLS13-086 and PLS13-87A all returned wide intersections of mineralization at shallow depth and represent strong growth for the zone. Of particular note is hole PLS13-086 which returned 43.0m @1.93% U3O8, including 5.0m @9.91% U3O8.

Drilling Highlights include:

PLS13-086 (line 330E)

  • 43.0m (81.5m - 124.5m) @ 1.93% U3O8 including:
  • 5.0m (101.0m - 106.0m) @ 9.91% U3O8

PLS13-085 (line 360E)

  • 22.0m (82.5m - 104.5m) @ 0.93% U3O8 including:
  • 4.0m (85.0m - 89.0m) @ 4.07% U3O8

PLS13-078 (line 435E)

  • 30.0m (85.0m - 115.0m) @ 0.66% U3O8 including:
  • 1.5m (96.5m - 98.0m) @ 7.62% U3O8

Ross McElroy, President, COO, and Chief Geologist for Fission, commented,

"Zone R390E continues to show considerable growth as a high-grade zone. All five of the latest assays have confirmed strong grades in wide intersections, with hole PLS13-086 as a particular highlight."

Composited % U3O8 mineralized intervals are summarized in Table 1 below. Samples from the drill core are split in half on site. Where possible, samples are standardized at 0.5m down-hole intervals. One-half of the split sample is sent to the laboratory for analysis and the other half remains on site for reference. All depth measurements reported, including sample and interval widths are down-hole, core interval measurements and true thickness are yet to be determined.

Composite Parameters

  1. Minimum Thickness: 0.50m
  2. Grade Cut-off: 0.05 U3O8 (wt%)
  3. Maximum Internal Dilution: 2.00m

Drillhole PLS13-078 (line 435E) was collared as a vertical hole and was completed at a depth of 224.0m. A 30.0m wide mineralized zone (85.0m to 115.0m) returned a composite interval of 0.66% U3O8 over 30.0m. A higher grade interval returned 7.62% U3O8 over 1.5m (96.5m - 98.0m). A second interval of mineralization returned 0.12% U3O8 over 7.5m. The mineralization on PLS13-078 appears to be up-dip by about 17m from hole PLS13-073.

Drillhole PLS13-081 (line 405E) was collared as a vertical hole and was completed at a depth of 230.0m. The collar is located approximately 10m grid north of PLS13-064 (10.5m @ 0.43% U3O8. An upper zone returned a value of 0.19% U3O8 over 18.5m (106.0m - 124.5m) and 0.06% U3O8 over 2.5m.

Drillhole PLS13-085 (line 330E) was collared as a vertical hole and was completed to a depth of 224.0m. Multiple intervals were intersected ranging in width from 0.5m to 22.0m wide were intersected over a 120.0m span from 58.5m to 178.5m (see Table 1). The strongest interval returned a value of 0.93% U3O8 over 22.0m (82.5m - 104.5m) including a higher grade interval returning 4.07% U3O8 over 4.0m (85.0m - 89.0m).

Drillhole PLS13-086 (line 360E) was collared as a vertical hole and was completed to a depth of 263.0m. Multiple intervals were intersected ranging in width from 0.5m to 43.0m wide were intersected over 98.5m span from 75.5m to 174.0m (see Table 1). The strongest interval returned a value of 1.93% U3O8 over 43.0m (81.5m - 124.5m) including a higher grade interval returning 9.91% U3O8 over 5.0m (101.0m - 106.0m).

Drillhole PLS13-087A (line 315E) was collared as a vertical hole and was completed to a depth of 227.0m. Multiple intervals were intersected ranging in width from 0.5m to 16.5m wide were intersected over 67.5m span from 47.5m to 113.0m (see Table 1). The strongest interval returned a value of 0.40% U3O8 over 8.5m (63.5m - 72.0m).
