Mesa Begins Drilling Moonshine Springs Uranium Project in Arizona
| ||Mesa Uranium Corp. (TSX-V:MZU) ("Mesa") is pleased to announce commencement of drilling at its 100%-owned Moonshine Springs project in the Arizona Strip Uranium Mining District in Mohave County, Arizona. |
Uranium exploration in the Moonshine Springs area by Pathfinder Mines and Exxon Minerals led to the discovery of a 2.5 million pound U3O8 deposit in the 1980s. The deposit is currently owned by Dennison Mines and is located within 1 mile of Mesa's project. Limited data exists on historic holes drilled on land controlled by Mesa. One hole drilled by Exxon intercepted a six foot interval averaging 0.4% U3O8 (8 pounds per ton) at a depth of 600 feet.
Mesa's planned drilling program will consist of 10 to 12 holes for a total footage of 6,000 feet and is designed to verify previous drilling and test for extensions of the known mineralized system. Positive drilling results will lead to follow-up drilling in 2008.
