The first stage of drilling has been completed at three target areas at the Amarillo Grande site in Argentina by Uranium mining firm, Blue Sky Uranium Corp.
The company has also completed a follow-up reverse circulation drilling and electrical tomography geophysical programme to further define an area with elevated uranium-vanadium on the eastern flank of the previously-drilled area. Drilling and geophysical surveying are expected to resume at the Ivana target next week or during beginning of September. Additionally, the Company is advancing with a beneficiation and metallurgical testwork program on uranium-vanadium mineralised material from Ivana.
"We are very encouraged with the progress of our drill program to date," stated Nikolaos Cacos, President & CEO. "It is promising to see our technical team twice expand the drill program at Ivana since the completion of Phase I drilling."
Currently, a total of 3 729m of reverse circulation drilling in 256 holes and 22.5 line km of electrical tomography has been completed to throughout the project area. Phase 1 (1390 m in 98 holes) drilling results from Ivana were previously reported by the Company on 19 June 2017. The follow-up exploration programme at Ivana comprised 858 metres of RC drilling and 6.5 line kilometres of ET surveying. The remainder of the results from the Phase I drilling, and follow-up drilling at Ivana, are expected to be received and interpreted by early September.
