About Carson Lake
The 100%-owned Carson Lake Project consists of 2 claims totalling 4,972 hectares on the eastern side of Canada’s Athabasca Basin. It adjoins ValOre Metals Hatchet Lake Project on the north-eastern edge of the Athabasca Basin. The project covers a historic airborne geophysical electromagnetic (EM) survey that outlined a strong northeast trending EM conductor approximately 10 kilometres in length. The survey covered two of the primary target areas.
To the north, the Killock target is presumed to be graphitic pelite that has been incorporated into the north-south trending Killock Fault. Brittle structures such as the Killock fault intersecting ductile rock types, such as graphitic pelite, can create favourable dilation zones and allow uranium-rich fluids to become trapped.
The Lejour target is located where the north-south trending Lejour Fault crosscuts the main conductive trend. Gravity results suggest that the conductive trend is associated with a lithologic contact. Interpretation of the EM results suggests the single conductor west of the Lejour Fault is present as two parallel conductors east of the fault. The lower priority Trunk target is a 1-kilometre long, sigmoidal shaped EM conductor located within the southeast portion of the project.
