Key Points of Interest

  • Two historic mineralized drill-holes: HRS-78-02 returned 0.166% U3O8 over 1.0 metres.
  • 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. that terminated at the south edge of the property, revealed a 6 km long formational EM conductor trending onto the property from the south.
  • 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.
  • 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 9 contiguous claims and 2 non-contiguous claims covering an area 10 km long by 7 km wide, totaling 2,743 hectares. 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.
