Uranex Limited: Completion of Diamond Drilling Programme
December 11, 2013 (Source: Uranex Limited) — Uranex Limited (ASX: UNX) (“Uranex” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on the diamond drilling programme on its 100% owned Nachu Graphite Project.
We are excited to announce the completion of our Diamond Drilling Programme. This represents the completion of another key milestone in our short term focus to develop a resource estimate.
13 holes were drilled for 791 metres. A photograph of a core sample is shown in Figure 1. This follows the completion of the Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling programme conducted during October and November 2013 (reference 1). The Uranex geology team selected two areas as the primary targets for the diamond drilling programme.
The initial focus was on Blocks C and D and these can be seen Figure 2 in relation to the other blocks identified by the Electro-magnetic survey (reference 2). The location of the diamond drill holes drilled can be seen in Figure 3.
Block D commenced first and two holes were completed before adverse weather conditions affected the ability to access the area. The rig then commenced on Block C and eleven holes were completed in this block. Core logging and core cutting is well underway with the first set of samples to be sent to the laboratory this week. Testing core samples represents the next key milestone on the Nachu project.
