Junior uranium miner Fission Energy (CVE:FIS) said Thursday that its chairman and chief executive Dev Randhawa is expected to present at an upcoming conference this month.
The uranium explorer said it will present and attend one-on-one
meetings at the Roth Capital Partners 24th Annual symposium on March 14
at 12:30 p.m.
The event, which will be taking place in Dana, Point, California, is being held between March 11 through 14, 2012.
The Roth Capital event is designed to offer investors insight into
small and mid-cap companies across a number of sectors like business
services, cleantech, media and software.
Randhawa has wide-ranging international experience in developing
resource, mining exploration and energy companies. He has headed Fission
since 2007, during which time the company has made high grade
discoveries at its Waterbury Lake and Patterson Lake South properties in
the Athabasca Basin.
In late February, the miner announced a 2,100 metre, 14 hole drill
program would begin at its Patterson Lake South property in the
uranium-rich Athabasca Basin.
The program is a continuation of last year's efforts to locate the
bedrock source area of the high-grade uranium boulder field discovery
made last June, which is believed to occur below the unconformity in a
basement hosted system.
Drilling will test many geophysical targets identified by an on-going
Time Domain Electromagnetic and a DC-Resistivity survey being conducted
on the Patterson Lake conductor corridor.
Fission is engaged in the acquisition and exploration of uranium
properties in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Quebec as well as in the
Macusani District in Peru.
Its flagship Waterbury Lake project is located immediately west of Hathor Exploration’s (TSE:HAT) Roughrider uranium deposit, which rests in the Athabasca Basin district that hosts over 110 million pounds of uranium.
Hathor was recently subject to a takeover battle in late 2011 between mining giants Cameco Corp. (TSE:CCO) and Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO), with Rio Tinto emerging as the victor with its $654 million bid trumping Cameco's $625 million offer.
