Drilling has now shown that the geological structure hosting the uranium mineralisation at Rössing South is consistently mineralised over a strike length of nine kilometres. Zones 1 and 2 at Rössing South, which are the subject of the Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) which is currently in progress, together make up the northern 5.5 kilometres of the total identified mineralised strike length. Approximately six kilometres of the highly prospective Rössing South Anticline remain to be drill tested.
CHEMICAL ASSAYS CONFIRM THE EMERGENCE OF ZONE 5 AT
HUSAB’S RÖSSING SOUTH
Emerging Zone 5 at Husab’s Rössing South:
o Chemical assay results including 29 metres assaying 1653 ppm U3O8 in RSRC002a
o Continuous mineralisation at Zone 5 has now been identified over a strike length of 1.7 kilometres and remains open along strike and down dip.
• Granite hosted uranium mineralisation now confirmed over nine kilometres of strike of the Rössing South Anticline with another six kilometres to be explored.
• Definitive Feasibility Study targeted for completion in Q4 of calendar 2010. Early stage planning for Mining Licence application has commenced.
• Comminution test work commenced on a bulk sample of mineralised alaskite material from Rössing South.
• Continued drilling focussed on upgrading early mined material to a “Measured” Resource classification.
• Further exploration potential within Husab Uranium Project still to be tested with an exploration drilling program continuing with a number of new targets planned for testing
in 2H, 2010.
• 17 drill rigs currently in operation.
September 9, 2010: Following the resource update announced on 10 August, 2010, which confirmed Rössing South as one of the world’s largest uranium deposits, Extract Resources Limited (ASX/TSX/NSX:EXT) (“Extract” or “the Company”) is pleased to provide an update on progress at the Husab Uranium Project in Namibia.
