(PresseBox) -

IsoEnergy Ltd. (?IsoEnergy? or the ?Company?) (TSXV: ISO; OTCQX: ISENF - ) is pleased to report the results of a review of the winter 2020 drilling program at the Hurricane zone.Eastern Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan (Figure 1).


  • The Hurricane zone now measures 575m long, 40m across, and up to 11m thick
  • Within the overall Hurricane zone footprint, recent drilling on the western end has intersected a zone of very strong uranium mineralization that is at least 100m long
  • Previously released highlights from the zone of very strong uranium mineralization include:
    • Drill hole LE20-53 - 11.7% U3O8 over 10.5m, including 40.4% U3O8 over 3.0m
    • Drill hole LE20-52 - 22.7% U3O8 over 7.5m, including 67.2% U3O8 over 2.5m
    • Drill hole LE20-51 - 14.5% U3O8 over 7.5m, including 30.9% U3O8 over 3.5m
    • Drill Hole LE20-40 - 20.5% U3O8 over 4.0m, including 53.8% U3O8 over 1.5m
    • Drill Hole LE20-34 - 33.9% U3O8 over 8.5m, including 57.1% U3O8 over 5.0m
    • Drill Hole LE20-32A - 19.6% U3O8 over 8.5m, including 63.6% U3O8 over 2.5m
  • Several areas have excellent potential for expansion
  • A summer drilling program is planned that includes the collection of geotechnical and hydrogeological data
  • With $3.5M in its treasury, the Company is funded through the planned summer drilling program

Craig Parry, Chief Executive Officer commented: ?Our initial review of the winter Hurricane zone drilling results has been very positive.posit?s extents are better understood ? likely sometime within the next 12 months.?

Steve Blower, VP Exploration commented: ?The winter drill program has confirmed that our Hurricane discovery has significant size and high-grade uranium potential. r news flow over coming months as we move towards delineating an initial Mineral Resource on Hurricane?.


A program of 10,322m of core drilling in 24 drill holes was completed in March with two drills.

Western Hurricane Zone Expansion

All 14 drill holes completed at the western extension of the Hurricane zone were mineralized (Table 1).3O8 over 8.5m, including 57.1% U3O8 over 5.0m.

Eastern Potential

Drilling to the east of the Hurricane zone evaluated the western portion of a 5km long basement conductive zone mapped by the 2019 DC-resistivity survey (Figure 4).

Next Steps

Detailed geological and geochemical interpretations are now underway and will aid planning for a summer 2020 drilling program. Mineral Resource estimate will follow ? likely within the next 12 months.

The Larocque East Property and the Hurricane Zone

The 100% owned Larocque East property consists of 25 mineral claims totaling 14,921ha that are not encumbered by any royalties or other interests.

Along with other target areas, the Property covers a 15-kilometre-long northeast extension of the Larocque Lake conductor system; a trend of graphitic metasedimentary basement rocks that is associated with significant uranium mineralization at the Hurricane zone, and in several occurrences on Cameco Corp. and Orano Canada Inc.?s neighbouring property to the southwest of Larocque East.3O8 over 8.5m in drill hole LE20-34.3O8 over 7.0m in drill hole Q22-040.
