Among the highlights, J-Zone area B drill hole Wat 12-242 returned 1.37% Uranium at nine metres. This includes 3.72% Uranium at 1.50 metres and 2.64% Uranium at 1.50 metres. Drill hole Wat 12-244 intersected 1.97% Uranium at 5.50 metres. This includes 9.61% Uranium at just one metre and 0.28% Uranium at four metres.
Hole Wat 12-247, meanwhile, intersected 1.05% Uranium at eight metres. This includes 2.22% Uranium at three metres.
