Crosshair Exploration & Mining Corp. ( NYSE Amex: CXZ) (TSX: CXX) is pleased to announce the first set of results from the ongoing drill program on the Juniper Ridge Uranium Project in southwest Wyoming. The 2011 program is designed to confirm historical results, which indicated that the Project was amenable to an open-pit, heap leach operation. Results have now been verified for the first 57 holes and are similar in grade and thickness to the historical results. Highlights include:
|Drill Hole||From (feet)||To (feet)||Length (feet)||% eU 3O 8 *|
NOTE: Holes not drilled in numerical sequence.
“We are pleased to see our first set of drill results returning similar mineralization as was historically reported,” says Stewart Wallis, P.Geo., President and CEO. “Even more exciting is that many of the holes have multiple uranium intercepts. Drilling is continuing to explore the historical mineralization as the drills move to the north and east.”
