Key Points of Interest

  • Two historic mineralized drill-holes: HRS-78-02 returned 0.166% U3O8 over 1.0 metresVM1 .
  • The property is reportedly underlain by Wollaston domain arkose, psammopelite and calc-silicates on the west, and pelitic gneisses on the east.
  • A 2005 VTEM survey by Forum Uranium Corp. covered the south half of the property and revealed a 6 km long formational EM conductor
  • The historic Karpinka Lake Uranium Showing occurs within the property, which consists of a series of five discontinuous low grade zones of stratabound uranium mineralization. Of these, the George Zone displays a strike length of 2.22 km and a width varying from 1.0 to 3.0 metres. Disseminated uraninite occurs within a sillimanitic, pyritic meta-arkose horizon.
  • Prior drilling by Forum Uranium Corp. included DDH DD-08 which returned up to 313 ppm uranium over 0.3m within a tectonized graphitic pelitic gneiss, which was encountered from 5 metres depth to 145 metres depth.
  • The exploration target is high grade basement hosted root zone uranium mineralization associated with an eroded unconformity type uranium deposit.

The Karpinka Lake property consists of 27 contiguous claims covering an area approximately 30 km long by 10 km wide, totaling 7,510 hectares. The property was merged with the former Millson Lake Property, also held by Fission 3.0, earlier in 2018. Excellent road access is provided by Hwy 914 (Key Lake Road) that runs through the centre of the property. Karpinka Lake is located 40 kilometres south of the southeast edge of the Athabasca Basin, along the transition zone between the Wollaston domain and the Mudjatik domain, host to producing uranium deposits such as McArthur River and Cigar Lake. The Key Lake Shear Zone, host to several uranium mineralized zones discovered by Forum Uranium Corp. from 2005 to 2008, transects the west portion of the property, and trends northeast to the past-producing Key Lake deposits at the basin edge.

During July 2017 a VTEMTM Plus airborne geophysical survey was conducted over 262 km in one survey block.  The VTEM survey was instrumental in defining conductors over the entire project area.  The dominant Key Lake Road conductor was delineated through the centre of the surveyed area and a sub-parallel conductor was delineated in the northwest part of the survey area.
