Manitou Falls

Key points of interest:

  • The Dorothy Lake metasedimentary belt directly to the north has been extensively drilled strong conductors and alteration minor uranium mineralization encountered in several drill holes.
  • Airborne radiometric surveying has outlined six areas of elevated uranium levels that warrant further ground investigation
  • Shallow depth to unconformity: expected to average approximately 100 metres below surface

The Manitou Falls property comprises 1 mineral claims totalling 2,941 ha located on the north-eastern edge of the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, approximately 74 kilometres east of Stony Rapids. The property was acquired as a single claim by way of the December 2013 Fission Uranium/Alpha Minerals agreement; two additional contiguous claims were subsequently appended to the property by staking. Fission 3.0 owns 100% of the Manitou Falls property. In September 2013, a 1,054 line-km high-resolution property-wide airborne magnetic and radiometric survey at 50m line spacing was completed.


The property has been prospected since the 1960′s by Canadian Exploration Company Ltd. (airborne mag & scint), Saskatchewan Mining Development Corp. (airborne magnetic surveying, ground electromagnetic surveying, radiometrics, soil & lake sampling), JNR Resources Inc. (airborne electromagnetic surveying) and most recently by Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. (airborne MEGATEM geophysical surveying, radiometric surveying).

During September 2013 Fission 3.0 Corp. flew a 790 line-km airborne high resolution magnetic and radiometric survey budgeted at $64,000. Interpretation of the data shows the area to be dominated by a series of roughly north trending features sub-parallel to and including the Newnham Fault (a major ‘Tabbernor’ style fault). The TDX derivative grid shows an outline of the relative magnetic highs and lows. The magnetic high units are interpreted to represent Archean granites and the magnetic lows are generally interpreted to be the Aphebian units.

Radiometric interpretation of the data produced almost 50 priority uranium anomalies within the property.

In July 2015 a Fission 3.0 heli-prospecting crew visited 38 priority uranium anomalies interpreted from the 2013 airborne survey. Anomalies were associated with clusters of erratics of more radioactive granites, gneisses, and porphyritic granites. Rock samples were collected but not submitted for geochemical analysis.
