92 Energy share price soars on uranium discovery

Shares in 92 Energy have soared after announcing the discovery of a new zone of uranium.

The company released an announcement earlier today, noting new zones of uranium mineralisation at its Gemini Project.

92 Energy identified the zones from chemical assays of samples from a drill hole (GEM-004).

Mineralisation of 0.12% uranium oxide was intersected at 5.5 metres, including 1 metre at 0.28% uranium oxide.

The highest-grade assay within this sub-interval returned 0.36% uranium oxide at 0.5 metres.

92 Energy managing director Siobhan Lancaster noted;

To identify 5.5m of 0.12% U3O8 on the fourth drill hole of our inaugural drilling program is an extraordinary result for 92 Energy. The success of this program is testament to our technically-driven strategy and the world-class exploration team that designed and delivered this program.

Importantly, the company’s management also noted that the drill assays showed similarities to other early holes at major Athabasca Basin uranium discoveries.

92 Energy noted that follow up drilling to determine the extent of mineralisation is due to begin in the Canadian winter.
