Vancouver, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 9, 2014 / Glenmark Capital Corp. (TSX.V: GLM) ("Glenmark" or "the Company" ) is pleased to announce that it has engaged Urania Resource Corp. ("Urania") to oversee and conduct fieldwork at its Ford Lake uranium project located ~11km northwest of the Key Lake mine. Urania has a long standing working relationship with local first nations and is a full service exploration company proficient in all facets of mineral investigation, specializing in the uranium sector. Over the last twelve years Urania has performed grass roots prospecting, radon gas surveys, airborne and ground surveys as well as diamond drill programs. In the Athabasca Basin Urania was most recently involved in exploration programs at Whitford Lake, Keefe Lake, Waterbury Lake and Mackenzie Lake.
The Ford Lake Uranium Project covers an area of ~ 6358 hectare in the Athabasca Basin, one of the most prospective uranium region in the world. The Ford Lake project is located 11km northwest of the Key Lake Mine, site of the largest uranium mill in the world. Cameco's Key Lake Mine, which has produced over 200 million lbs of uranium, currently processes material from the McArthur Mine. The Ford Lake Project lies within a highly prolific discovery corridor and adjoins projects controlled by Cameco, Denison and AREVA. Basement depths are relatively shallow, between 100-150m.
The primary exploration target at Ford Lake is the Ford Lake Zone which is some 500m west of the Shift Lake Uranium Zone, which boasts several drill holes that intersected anomalous uranium values and outlined a mineralized alteration zone of 775m. Forty eight holes (79-15 to 79-62), totaling 9,752.1 m (31,995.1 ft), were completed by Phelps Dodge Corporation of Canada Ltd. to test HLEM and pulse EM anomalies. Four of the holes intersected values greater than 0.10% U3O8 (0.08% U). At 189m, Union Carbide hole 79-17 intersected a 2.75 m (9.0 ft) interval which returned 0.62% U3O8 (0.53% U).
