Fission's Mineralized Trend Hits 2.31km; R600W Zone Grows East and West

Drilling Expands New High-Grade Area at Eastern Edge of Triple R

KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 1, 2015) - FISSION URANIUM CORP. (TSX:FCU)(OTCQX:FCUUF)(FRANKFURT:2FU) ("Fission" or "the Company") is pleased to announce results from a further ten holes of the 20,000m 60-hole summer drill program at its PLS property in Canada's Athabasca Basin region: six holes drilled on the R600W zone and four drilled on the R780E zone. Importantly, the high-grade, central near-surface R600W zone has grown, east and west and now has a total strike length of 135m, and the parallel northern lens has been intersected in multiple holes. Additionally, the recently-discovered high-grade area at the eastern edge of the Triple R deposit has been expanded. The total on-strike, mineralized trend at PLS now stands at 2.31km in length.

All ten holes returned mineralization, with five holes returning strongly radioactive mineralized intervals measuring >10,000 cps.

Drilling Highlights Include:

R600W Zone

  • Expanded R600W zone an additional 15m east (PLS15-423 on line 555W) and 15m west (PLS15-418 on line 690W)
  • North lens of mineralization - 40m north of the central R600W zone - continues to strengthen on lines 555W (PLS15-423) and 570W (PLS15-428)
  • R600W zone now extended to a strike length of 135m (line 690W to 555W)

R780E Zone

  • Considerable high-grade mineralization encountered on line 1110E - a very successful follow up to high-grade hole PLS15-416 (see NR Aug 11, 2015)

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

"We are continuing to see rapid expansion of the shallow, high-grade R600W zone, this time to the north, east and west. The strength of the developing north lens of mineralization - 40m north of the main R600W zone is particularly exciting. The zone remains wide open in all directions and we believe R600W has a lot more to give. It is also very encouraging to see that the high-grade area we encountered recently at the eastern end of the Triple R deposit is growing. All in all, this is an excellent set of results."

Intersection Highlights Include:

  • Hole PLS15-418 (line 690W)
    • 65.0m total composite mineralization over a 245.5m section (between 101.0m - 346.5m) including:
      • 3.26m total composite mineralization of >10,000 cps radioactivity
  • Hole PLS15-427 (line 1110E)
    • 55.0m total composite mineralization over a 124.5m section (between 226.5m - 351.0m) including:
      • 2.14m total composite mineralization of >10,000 cps radioactivity

PLS Mineralized Trend & Triple R Deposit Summary

Uranium mineralization at PLS has been traced by core drilling approximately 2.31km of east-west strike length in four separate mineralized "zones". From west to east, these zones are; R600W, R00E, R780E and R1620E.

The discovery hole of what is now referred to as the Triple R uranium deposit was announced on November 05, 2012 with drill hole PLS12-022, from what is considered part of the R00E zone. Through successful exploration programs completed to date, it has evolved into a large, near surface, basement hosted, structurally controlled high-grade uranium deposit.

The Triple R deposit consists of the R00E zone on the western side and the much larger R780E zone further on strike to the east. Within the deposit, the R00E and R780E zones have an overall strike length of approximately 1.2km with the R00E measuring approximately 125m in strike length and the R780E zones measuring approximately 900m in strike length. A 225m gap separates the R00E zone to the west and the R780E zones to the east, though sporadic narrow, weakly mineralized intervals from drill holes within this gap suggest the potential for further significant mineralization in this area. The R780E zones are located beneath Patterson Lake which is approximately six metres deep in the area of the deposit. The entire Triple R deposit is covered by approximately 50 m of overburden.

Mineralization remains open along strike both to the western and eastern extents. Mineralization is both located within and associated with a metasedimentary lithologic corridor, associated with the PL-3B basement Electro-Magnetic (EM) Conductor. Recent very positive drill results returning wide and strongly mineralized intersections approximately 555m west of the Triple R deposit, have significantly upgraded the R600W zone to a very prospective area for further growth of the PLS resource.

Natural gamma radiation in drill core that is reported in this news release was measured in counts per second (cps) using a hand held RS-121 Scintillometer manufactured by Radiation Solutions, which is capable of discriminating readings to 65,535 cps. The reader is cautioned that scintillometer readings are not directly or uniformly related to uranium grades of the rock sample measured, and should be used only as a preliminary indication of the presence of radioactive materials. The degree of radioactivity within the mineralized intervals is highly variable and associated with visible pitchblende mineralization. All intersections are down-hole. Individual zone wireframe models constructed from assay data indicate that both the R780E and R00E zones have a complex geometry controlled by and parallel to steeply south-dipping lithological boundaries as well as a preferential sub-horizontal orientation. All depths reported of core interval measurements including radioactivity and mineralization intervals widths are not always representative of true thickness and thus true thicknesses are yet to be determined.

Samples from the drill core will be split in half sections on site. Where possible, samples will be standardized at 0.5m down-hole intervals. One-half of the split sample will be sent to SRC Geoanalytical Laboratories (an SCC ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 Accredited Facility) in Saskatoon, SK for analysis which includes U3O8 (wt %) and fire assay for gold, while the other half will remain on site for reference. Analysis will include a 63 element ICP-OES, and boron.
