The 31 additional contiguous lode claims will expand TNT’s landholding at East Canyon to around 18.7 square kilometres.
As a result, the interpreted mineralised uranium and vanadium strike trend of the company will be extended by over one kilometre at both the None Such and Bonanza prospects respectively.
Increased landholding to complement recent sampling success
TNT’s move to stake the additional claims will complement the success of recent exploration work carried out at None Such and Bonanza.
Recently completed sampling program showed high-grade mineralisation exists in multiple underground workings with vertical face samples of up to 1.25 metres at 0.26% uranium and 0.6 metres at 0.34% uranium.
Laboratory results of five samples from the 2020 program are expected soon.
Multiple highly prospective targets
Besides None Such and Bonanza, multiple other highly prospective targets within the East Canyon Project are yet to be explored, including Black Hawk, Loya Ray, Big Lead and Stateline.
The East Canyon project claims incorporate around eight kilometres of outcropping Salt Wash Member which hosts the uranium and vanadium ore.
East Canyon is only 50 kilometres away from the White Mesa Mill, the only fully operational uranium and vanadium mill in the US.
