Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 2, 2022) – Kraken Energy Corp. (CSE: UUSA) (OTCQB: UUSAF) (the “Company” Where “Kraken Energy“) is pleased to announce that a high-resolution unmanned aerial vehicle (“UAVs“) supported a magnetic and radiometric survey carried out this summer at the former Apex uranium mine (“Summit“or the”Property“) and the surrounding body of land in Nevada, has successfully identified several additional priority drill targets.
The UAV survey, which uses state-of-the-art drone technology to produce high-resolution data essential for identifying radiometric anomalies associated with uranium mineralization and geophysical signatures used to discover new areas of uranium mineralization. The airborne surveys focused on the 13 kilometer (8.2 mile) northwest-southeast trend between the Apex mine and the Lowboy mine.
Drone surveys were conducted by MWH Geo-Surveys using a Geometrics MagArrow cesium magnetometer and a D230A UAV gamma-ray spectrometer piloted under a Watts Innovation Prism X8 axial quadcopter.
“We are very pleased with the results of the recently completed geophysical surveys on our Apex property, as the data shows extensive and previously unknown radioactivity at the surface, which is consistent with our understanding of the geology of the area,” said the CEO Matthew Schwab. “With the information gained from these surveys, we have added other high priority target areas and will be able to better plan targets for future drilling.”
