Comstock Metals Acquires Claims in Cree-Key Lake and Patterson Lake South areas of Saskatchewan
December 30, 2014
Comstock Metals Ltd. (TSX-V: CSL) (“Comstock” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired by staking claims totalling 21,900 ha in the Cree – Key Lakes and Patterson South (PLS) area of Saskatchewan. Two claims totalling 2835 ha are in the PLS area, which is considered to be highly prospective for unconformity-related uranium mineralization due to the success of Fission and Nexgen Energy. Uranium mineralization at both Fission and Nexgen’s properties is basement hosted and is considered to be an attractive target due to its shallower depth compared to many other unconformity related uranium deposits in the Athabasca Basin. Comstock Metals’ properties in the PLS area are named PL Northeast and are contiguous to and along trend of the uranium mineralization discovered by the two companies above (see Comstock Presentation on Comstock Metals’ website). The remaining claims are located southwest of the Key Lake deposit.
The company plans to carry out an extensive exploration program in the winter-spring season of 2014-2015 consisting of airborne and ground geophysical surveys, geochemical surveys, prospecting & boulder sampling, in order to define drill targets.
The technical information in this Release has been reviewed by Gordon Davidson, P.Geol., a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Davidson is a Director of the Company.
