JNR Resources Inc. (TSXV:JNN.V) (the 'Company') as operator, has completed a 1,379 line-km airborne
gravity gradient survey over its 100% owned Newnham
Lake project (8 claims, 27,723 ha). The results of this survey have been
processed and now are being interpreted and integrated with previous ground
and airborne geophysical programs to further define drill targets.
Preliminary results of the aircraft-borne, full tensor 3D gravity
gradient survey clearly show that this program was successful in better
defining the structural setting of the property. Several 'zones of interest'
outlined within the Newnham Lake claims lie along
extensive corridors of well-defined, structurally-disrupted basement
conductors. The corridors are typically several km in strike length. This
property is now at a drill-ready stage with numerous high-priority targets
The Newnham Lake project
straddles the northern margin of the Athabasca Basin and lies directly along
the Cable Bay Shear zone. This is a major transcrustal
structural feature, which exhibits many of the positive geochemical and
geological attributes required for the formation of significant uranium
deposits. Although the property has been drill-tested historically, many
high-priority targets remain. These better defined targets are anticipated to
be the focus of future drilling programs.
JNR Resources is a junior exploration company primarily focused on
uranium exploration and development in the provinces of Saskatchewan and
Newfoundland. The company has a varied interest in several prospective
uranium properties in the Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan that have
been and will continue to be the focal point of JNR's exploration efforts.
