Lakeland Resources (predecessor to ALX) commissioned RadonEx Ltd to complete a land based radon flux survey and Dahrouge Geological Consulting Ltd. to complete a ground gravity survey.A 100 X 750 metres radon anomaly was identified that was associated with a gravity low and north-south trending fault which crosscuts a known conductor.
ALX contracted Discovery Int’l Geophysics Inc. to complete a ground based IP/Resistivity survey covering 100.25 line kilometres.The results of the resistivity survey will be incorporated into the exploration database to evaluate drill targets on the property.
The 2018 drilling program at Newnham Lake consisted of three drill holes totaling approximately 1,164 metres. Uranium mineralization over significant widths as well as intense faulting and strong hydrothermal alteration deep in the basement were encountered during this drilling program. Highlights include:
- Drill hole NL18-001 intersected a 5.7 metre interval that averaged 0.035% U3O8 from 100.8 to 106.5 metres including 0.118% U3O8 over 0.5 metres through a 6.0 metre zone of elevated radioactivity.
- Drill hole NL18-003 intersected as large fault zone approximately 62 metres wide with brecciation, fracturing and evidence of strong hydrothermal alteration deep in the basement rocks.
