April 15, 2010 – Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. (TSX:PTU.V) reported today that it has initiated an airborne electromagnetic survey of its 100% owned Henday Block Project in Saskatchewan Canada’s Athabasca Basin. The primary claims are located nine kilometres northwest of Areva’s Midwest Lake deposit (41 million lbs. U3O8) and are on trend with an interpreted East-West alteration corridor that hosts neighbouring Fission Corp’s new J-Zone as well as Hathor Exploration Limited’s Roughrider Deposit and their newly discovered Roughrider East Zone..
The detailed helicopter borne VTEM survey to be carried out by Geotech Ltd. will provide updated magnetic and electromagnetic data of the entire Henday Block Project.
The 100% owned Henday Block property is 1,752 hectares in size. Historic data provides evidence that an electromagnetic conductor stretches east-west across the primary claims and is associated with a favourable magnetic low.
Only one drill hole is known to have been drilled on Purepoint’s Henday property. Hole HLH8-71, drilled by Cogema Resources in 1998, encountered graphitic fault gouge at the bottom of the hole. The depth to basement is locally less than 350 metres.
Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. is focused on the precision exploration of more than 55 defined target areas on its eight 100% owned projects in the Canadian Athabasca Basin, and its two Basin projects joint ventured with Cameco Corporation and AREVA Resources Canada Inc. Established in the Basin well before the resurgence in uranium, Purepoint is actively advancing this large portfolio of multiple drill targets in the world’s richest uranium region.
