About Bachman Lake Project
The Bachman Lake project is located in the southeastern Athabasca Basin and consists of five contiguous claims totalling 11,419 hectares. The Bachman Lake project contains several ground electromagnetic conductors. Historic drill holes targeting the conductors intersected significant alteration and elevated pathfinder element geochemistry. The property is underlain by 450 to 600 metres of Athabasca sandstone which rest unconformably on Wollaston Supergroup metasedimentary rocks of the eastern Mudjatik Domain. Three conductors identified by geophysics and historical drilling are the main target areas.
