recent pressrelease next pressrelease

(PresseBox) - FISSION 3.0 CORP. (?Fission 3? or ?the Company? - ) is pleased to announce work programs for its Hearty Bay and Wales Lake projects in the Athabasca Basin region of Saskatchewan, Canada. Both projects are prospective for hosting high-grade uranium and the work programs will be used to identify high-priority areas for drill testing. At Hearty Bay, experts in glaciology and geomorphology will conduct a 10-day surface-based program with the goal of discovering the potential source of parallel high-grade boulder trains with values up to 3.54% U3O8. A similar approach was used by Fission Uranium prior to discovering the major, high-grade deposit at PLS in the Athabasca Basin. At Wales Lake, airborne and ground geophysics surveys will be used to identify conductive trends similar and parallel to those in the Patterson Lake Corridor, which host the nearby Triple R (Fission Uranium Corp) and Arrow (NexGen Energy Ltd.) high-grade uranium deposits.

Hearty Bay: 10-Day Surficial Geological Program

Glaciology and Geomorphological Work: Fission 3 will investigate the Isle Brochet uraniferous boulder trains located within the Hearty Bay project, using similar techniques to those employed by Fission Uranium prior to making the discovery at PLS.

In addition, a lake bottom spectrometer and marine acoustic survey will be conducted by Special Projects Inc. to help trace the boulder train below the lake and also to understand bedrock structures. The Budget Estimate for the S2019 Program at Hearty Bay is $620,000.

About Hearty Bay: The 100% owned Hearty Bay property comprises 3 mineral claims with an area of 6,881 ha. main ice direction and containing up to 3.54% uranium. Approximately 600 metres to the northeast several more radioactive boulders of both sandstone and basement origin were discovered. Historic drilling proximal to these boulders did not intersect any significant radioactivity, the source remains sca Basin, some of which led to the discovery of significant uranium deposits (i.e. Key Lake, Midwest).? The discovery by Fission Uranium Corp. of the Triple R deposit in 2012 was also made as a result of the definition, from a high resolution airborne radiometric survey, of a radioactive boulder train SW of Patterson Lake.

Wales Lake: Airborne and ground geophysics

Airborne VTEM Survey: Geotech Airborne Geophysical Surveys has been contracted to complete a total 1,072 line-km of an airborne helicopter VTEM (Versatile Time Domain Electromagnetic) Max and Magnetic survey over Block B (663 line-km) and east side of Block C (409 line-km).allel to those in the Patterson Lake Corridor.

Ground Geophysics: Discovery International Geophysics Inc. recently completed a 3.5 line-km ground SMLTEM (Small Moving Loop Time Domain Electromagnetic) survey over the eastern part of Block A.

About Wales Lake: The 100% owned Wales Lake property is located in the south-west Athabasca Basin region ~25km to 30km west and south of Fission Uranium Corp?s flagship high-grade Triple R uranium deposit on the PLS property.shallow depth basement hosted target areas outside of the margin of the Athabasca Basin.
