Historic drilling intersected sandstone and basement rocks with strongly altered, bleached, brecciated and sheared basement rocks which are some of the key indicators for nearby high-grade uranium.
Vancouver BC – Traction Uranium Corp. (the “Company” or “Traction”) (CSE: TRAC) (OTC: TRT) (FRA: Z1K), a mineral exploration issuer focusing on the development of discovery prospects in Canada, including its two flagship uranium projects in the world-renowned Athabasca Region, is pleased to report planning is underway for the Lazy Edward Bay maiden drill program by engaging Bryson drilling out of Archerwill, Saskatchewan.
Bryson drilling will be scouting the route to mobilize the diamond drill rig to the property next week and hires local First Nations community members from the Athabasca Basin Region for their drill crews.
Lester Esteban, Chief Executive Officer, stated “We are looking forward to executing on our 2022 maiden drill program at Lazy Edward Bay this month. Bryson drilling is one of Canada’s leading and most trusted diamond drillers whose name was built up over 3 generations of hard-working mineral exploration drillers with over 100 years of combined experience and we are pleased to be utilizing that expertise and engaging as much of the Saskatchewan local community in our programs as much as possible.”
Historical Lazy Edward Bay drill holes LE-72 and LE-73 encountered 170 ppm uranium, LE-50 intersected graphitic pelites returning 908 ppm Uranium along with other pathfinder metals. Previous airborne and ground EM surveys refined conductor locations along with geochemical and radon surveys bolstering geophysical targets which have yet to be drilled. They are now considered high-priority targets.
