Intense 1.5 km long by 0.5 km anomaly uncovered on Patterson Uranium Prospect in the Athabasca Basin with immediate drilling planned

Press Releases |

Vancouver, BC / April 9, 2015 - Makena Resources Inc. (the "Company" or " Makena") (MKN:CA) wishes to announce that the recent work program on the Patterson Uranium Prospect has uncovered multiple anomalies including a 1.5 by 0.5 km discovery. Immediate drilling is being planned to fully investigate these findings. Makena’s Property directly borders Fission Energy Corp’s (FCU:CA) world class “Patterson Lake South (PLS)” discovery in the Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan.

Dr. Karl Schimann stated, "The ongoing gravity surveys on the Patterson Project have outlined multiple intense gravity low anomalies. The largest and most intense is 1.5 km long by 0.5 km wide and correlates with magnetic lineaments as well as with VTEM conductive anomalies. This strong anomaly is close to, and parallel to, the magnetic boundary marking the edge of the Clearwater Domain. Drill hole CLU11-79 is also close to this boundary and the basement intersected in this drill hole is mylonitised and clay/sericite-altered. Immediate drilling is warranted on this anomaly."

Negar Adam, President of Makena stated, “We feel the findings so far are promising.  Obtaining a clear drill target on this property is exciting for both management and our shareholders.  Considering we are bordering one of the most anticipated uranium projects in the world (Fission’s Patterson), and in the direct vicinity of what may possibly be the next discovery (NexGen’s Arrow and Rook), we are positioned strategically within the best uranium district in the world.  We eagerly anticipate conducting our first drill program on this prospect.”

 Dr. Karl Schimann, PhD, PGeo, is the qualified technical person responsible for this news release.
