Forum Commences Airborne Geophysical Survey on Its Claims Along Trend of the Alpha/Fission Patterson Lake Discovery
May 28, 2013 — VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA (Source: Marketwired) — Forum Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:FDC) is pleased to announce the commencement of an electromagnetic and magnetic survey of its 100% owned Clearwater Project. Forum’s claims, staked immediately adjacent to the southwest of the Alpha Minerals/Fission Uranium claim boundary is interpreted to be on strike with the fertile conductive trend that hosts the high-grade uranium discovery on the Patterson Lake South project. Forum’s property lies only four kilometres southwest of the high grade boulder train on the Alpha/Fission property.
Figure 1 below shows historical electromagnetic trends, a magnetic map and lake sediment geochemical surveys in the Patterson Lake South area. The electromagnetic (EM) surveys stopped at Forum’s claim boundary, however EM conductors from these historic surveys trend in the direction of Forum’s ground. Of particular note is that the highest lake sediment value in the area lies on Forum’s southwest claim with a value of 8.3 ppm U. Most values are between 1 to 3 ppm U and the lake sediment sample taken down-ice from the Patterson lake boulder field was 3.2 ppm U.
An Aeroquest Airborne helicopter-borne time domain electromagnetic survey with Bfield-VTEM Plus and magnetic gradiometer system will be flown on 200 metre line spacings for a total of 647 line kilometres over Forum’s 99 square kilometre property. The VTEM Plus system has been chosen for its depth penetration and vertical/spatial resolution of graphitic conductors that are prospective hosts for unconformity-style uranium deposits.
This is the first phase of this year’s summer exploration program. Plans are to conduct an airborne radiometric survey and a detailed prospecting survey to search for any boulder fields similar to that found on the Alpha/Fission ground.
