Alpha Minerals Hits 12.5m at 2.49% U3O8 Near Surface At PLS

TSX.V :AMW
Frankfurt: E2GA

VANCOUVER, Dec. 5, 2012 /CNW/ - ALPHA MINERALS INC. (TSX-V: AMW), (the "Company" or "Alpha"), and its 50% Joint Venture (JV) partner Fission Energy Corp (TSX-V:FIS) are pleased to report assay results from the recently completed drill program (see news release Nov. 15, 2012 ) on its Patterson Lake South ("PLS") uranium property in Saskatchewan.

The mineralized drill hole intersections as composited include:

  • Hole PLS12-024:
    • 18.0m @ 1.78% U3O8 from 65.0m to 83.0m

    • including 12.5m @ 2.49% U3O8 from 65.5m to 78.0m
      • including 3.5m @ 4.33% U3O8 from 66.5m to 70.0m
        • including 0.50m @ 11.1% U3O8 from 69.5m to 70.0m
  • Hole PLS12-022:
    • 8.5m @ 1.07% U3O8 from 70.5m to 79m

    • including 2.5m @ 2.63% U3O8 from 74.0m to 76.5m

  • Hole PLS12-025:
    • 22.5m @ 0.4% U3O8 from 60.5m to 83.0m

    • including 4.03m @ 0.85% U3O8 from 77.5m to 81.53m

  • Hole PLS12-023:
    • 9.5m @ 0.27% U3O8 from 66.5m to 76.0m

The 9 hole 1631.86m core drilling program focused on the partially tested PL-3B EM Conductor, in addition to other untested parallel east-northeast trending EM conductors, which lie approximately 3.0 km to the east of the high grade uranium boulder field reported in July of last year (see news release July 27, 2011).

Composited mineralized intervals are summarized in the PLS Drill Summary that follows. Assays show that the uranium mineralization is intersected at approximately the same shallow depths in the 4 newly reported drill holes. This mineralization hosted by steeper dipping in basement rocks that have a graphitic metasediment lithology and strong sudoite alteration.  Uranium concentration is well developed throughout the mineralized sections with assays being relatively consistent throughout.

The Joint Venture partners are planning for a further winter 2013 drilling program in order to carry out additional core drilling to define the mineralized area established by these results and to test a number of similar targets.  More details of the program will be released upon JV program approval.

Updated maps with drill hole locations showing zones of uranium mineralization have been posted to Alpha Mineral's corporate website and can be referenced at www.alphaminerals.ca.

Patterson Lake South Property

The 31,039 hectare PLS project is a 50%/50% Joint Venture held by Fission Energy Corp. and Alpha Minerals Inc (AMW). Fission is the Operator. PLS is accessible by road with primary access from all-weather Highway 955, which runs north to the former Cluff Lake mine, (>60M lbs of U3O8 produced), and passes through the nearby UEX-Areva Shea Creek discoveries (with resources of about 88 million lbs of U3O8) located 50km to the north, currently under active exploration and development.

Reference Point

The method to calculate pounds of uranium per short ton (a ton of 2000 pounds, which is commonly used in US mining information) requires multiplying the percentage grades of U3O8 reported by 20. Uranium is generally priced in dollars per pound and this is information that should be used with caution before applying numbers in an economic evaluation because there will be some losses involved in the milling and concentration of uranium in order to make a product that can be sold. The current spot price of uranium has risen three times in the last three quotations.

The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43- 101 and reviewed on behalf of the company by Ben Ainsworth P.Eng., BC/SK, President Alpha Minerals Inc, a Qualified Person.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Alpha Minerals Inc.
