Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - November 2, 2022) - Kraken Energy Corp. (CSE: UUSA) (OTCQB: UUSAF) (the "Company" or "Kraken Energy") is pleased to report that a high resolution Unmanned Aerial Vehicle ("UAV") supported magnetic and radiometric survey conducted this summer at the past-producing Apex Uranium Mine ("Apex" or the "Property") and surrounding land package in Nevada, has successfully identified multiple additional priority drilling targets.
The UAV survey, which uses leading-edge drone technology to produce high-resolution data critical for identifying the radiometric anomalies associated with uranium mineralization and the geophysical signatures used in discovering new zones of uranium mineralization. The surveys flown were focused on the 13-kilometre (8.2 mile) northwest-southeast trend from the Apex Mine to the Lowboy Mine.
The UAV surveys were conducted by MWH Geo-Surveys using a Geometrics MagArrow Cesium Magnetometer and a D230A UAV Gamma-Ray Spectrometer flown under a Watts Innovation Prism X8 axial quadcopter.
"We are very pleased with the results of the recently completed geophysical surveys at our Apex Property as the data shows extensive and previously unknown radioactivity on surface which aligns with our understanding of the area's geology," stated CEO Matthew Schwab. "With the information gained from these surveys we have added additional high priority target areas and will be able to better plan targets for upcoming drilling."
