Mesa Acquires Additional Land at Moonshine Springs
| ||Mesa Uranium Corp. (TSX: MZU) ("Mesa") is pleased to announce that an additional 2,460 acres has been added to the Moonshine Springs project, bringing the total acreage for the project to 3,050 acres (4.8 square miles). Mesa has initiated the filing process to obtain drilling permits for the project. Once permits have been received, an initial drilling program consisting of 8 drill holes totaling 5,200 feet will begin.|
Exxon Coal and Minerals ("Exxon") was a previous owner of the property and conducted uranium exploration drilling in 1979. Mesa has data on four widely-spaced holes drilled by Exxon, the best intercept being six feet grading 0.4% U3O8 (8 pounds per ton) at a depth of 600 feet in the Chinle formation. Initial drilling will be directed at expanding the known mineralization encountered by Exxon.
The 2.5 million pound Moonshine Springs uranium deposit is located within 2 miles of the project and is hosted in the Chinle formation. Denison Mines has recently (2/27/2007) announced the acquisition, from Pathfinder Mines, of this uranium deposit.
Mesa has been included as one of 35 companies in the TheUpTrend.com Canadian Uranium Stock Index. TheUpTrend.com tracks the price movement of Canadian stocks in the uranium sector. The index can be found at: www.theuptrend.com/Canadian_Uranium_Stock_Index.htm
These are exciting times for Mesa and we are pleased that TheUpTrend.com index is yet another means for Mesa to communicate its news in this fast-paced industry, where uranium is currently at an all time market high.
Mesa is currently exploring for uranium at the 100%-owned Lisbon Valley uranium project in Utah and the Moonshine Springs project in Arizona. The Lisbon Valley project covers 28 square miles in the Lisbon Valley Mining District with historic production of 85 million pounds of U3O8.
