Vancouver, B.C., December 11, 2013 - Forum Uranium Corp. (FDC: TSX-V) has successfully completed a ground gravity survey and generated approximately 11 drill targets on its 100% owned Clearwater Property, located on trend and immediately adjacent to the southwest of Fission Uranium’s Patterson Lake South (PLS) discovery.
The gravity survey was completed on three separate grids over priority areas of electromagnetic (EM) conductors and radon anomalies on the northern part of the property, in closest proximity to the PLS discovery. Four gravity lows and several structures have been identified from this survey. The airborne EM completed in the spring of 2013 identified several conductors that lie within three of the gravity lows.
Forum plans to follow-up with a ground EM survey early in January to prioritize drill locations for the conductive zones. This combination of geophysics and geochemistry will enable Forum’s technical team to more accurately define and locate drill holes on the most favourable uranium targets.
Ken Wheatley, Vice President of Exploration commented, “We are very pleased with the progress Forum’s technical team has made in advancing the Clearwater project to the drill stage. The nearby PLS discovery is a robust uranium mineralized system and Forum’s adjacent claims are well located on trend. Following completion of the ground EM survey, our first drill program on this project is planned to commence in late January.”
