Best results from NE Westmoreland include:
Nine diamond drill holes were completed at NE Westmoreland, in addition to three diamond tails added to holes from the 2006 RC campaign (see first three holes listed in Table 1 below), for a total of 2126m of NQ core (see Table 1).
El Hussen South
Five diamond drill holes were completed at El Hussen South totalling 708m of NQ core, with only one hole delivering mineralization as follows:.
EHS 7: 5.5 metres at 0.02% U3O8 from 10.95m
and 3.5 metres at 0.02% U3O8 from 17.35 m
(Easting AGD84 802948; Northing AGD84 8058751; Azimuth 68; Dip -63; Total Depth 151 m)
In all drilling, the NQ core was cut using a diamond saw, with half metre sample intervals being dispatched for assay by ALS Chemex, Townsville by method ME-MS61. The ME-MS61 assay involves a four acid (HF, HNO3, HCLO4 and HCL) "near total" digestion followed by a 48 element ICPMS scan, giving a detection range of 0.1-10,000ppm uranium.
