Follow-Up Prospecting and Expanded Radon Surveys on Forum Uranium Claims at Patterson Lake
September 17, 2013 (Source: Marketwired) — Forum Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:FDC) is pleased to announce further exploration of its 100% owned Clearwater Project on trend and immediately adjacent to the southwest of the Alpha Minerals/Fission Uranium Patterson Lake South discovery. Forum conducted ground radiometric prospecting, lake sediment geochemical surveys and soil gas radon surveys in late August/early September.
As a result of this program, further prospecting of airborne radiometric anomalies and expansion of the radon survey will take place. The radon survey has outlined a number of anomalous zones on two grids immediately southwest of the Alpha/Fission claim boundary. These results are very encouraging so the grids will be expanded to cover areas with airborne electromagnetic conductors on strike with the Patterson Lake South conductive trend. Upon completion of this follow-up program, Forum will conduct ground electromagnetic surveys this fall and ground gravity in early winter to outline targets for drilling in late January 2014.
