On June 25, 2013, Enexco entered into a joint venture agreement with Denison whereby Enexco can earn a 20% interest in the Bachman Lake project by funding CDN$500,000 of exploration work by December 31st, 2013.
The Bachman Lake project contains several structural zones with anomalous geochemistry, which are favourable targets for uranium mineralization. The 2013 drill program will test three conductors: CR-2, ML-2, and ML-1. The three conductors trend east-west to southwest-northeast and are 2.5 to 5 km apart within the 11,419 hectare property.
In November, 2012 Denison acquired through a private placement 5.4 million shares of Enexco, which represents a 7.4% interest of the present issued and outstanding shares. Denison’s strategic investment was proportional to Enexco’s portion of the 2013 exploration program on the Mann Lake project. Furthermore, on December 19, the Company announced that Ron Hochstein, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Denison joined Enexco as a member of its Board of Directors.
