Field work in Aricheng exploration area
Scout drilling confirms that the two uranium-bearing structures, Aricheng Epsilon and Aricheng West, merge to form a mineralized corridor that is 900 metres in length. Uranium in Aricheng Epsilon is concentrated in a set of inclined, sheet-like breccias. The breccias occur within an envelope of albite-chlorite-hematite-calcite alteration.
The Aricheng Epsilon structure is sub-vertical in orientation and has been intersected at a depth of 250 metres below surface. Mineralization remains open along strike and at depth.
