International Enexco Reports on the Mann Lake Uranium Project, Athabasca SK
- 21 drill holes completed - 15,721 metres drilled
- Anomalous uranium encountered in several targets
- Further drilling planned for 2014 Winter Program
VANCOUVER, CANADA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/09/13 -- International
Enexco Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:IEC)(OTCQX:IEXCF)(FRANKFURT:I6E) (the
"Company" or "Enexco"). Further to the March 27, 2013 press release,
Enexco is pleased to report positive results from the remainder of
the 2013 drill program on the Mann Lake Uranium Project in the
Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan. A total of 15,721 metres were
drilled in 21 holes under the direction of the project's operator,
Cameco Corporation ("Cameco"). Anomalous uranium was encountered in
structural and stratigraphic targets across the property. In
particular, encouraging unconformity alteration and weak
mineralization was encountered in the northern portion of the
property footwall to the western conductor with drill hole MN-047.
Additional basement mineralization was also encountered directly
north of Spring Lake in MN-036. A follow-up winter drill program is
being discussed for 2014 by Enexco and its joint venture partners
Cameco and AREVA.
Exploration on the Mann Lake property is focused on the C Conductor,
a 6 km long section of a regional trend that extends from the
MacArthur mine to the north to the Wheeler River deposit to the
south. The C Conductor on the Mann Lake property consists of three
geophysical conductors designated the East, Central and West
The 2013 program intersected anomalous basal sandstone uranium and
boron levels in drill holes on all three conductors at widespread
locations on the property. Significant uranium enrichment was
encountered in MN-038 on the West conductor; in MN-035 and MN-047
footwall to the West Conductor; in MN-033 and MN-051 on the Central
conductor; and, in MN-036, MN-041 and MN-043 on the East conductor,
with uranium haloes reaching 2 ppm over 370 metres in MN-041 and 75
ppm over the basal 23 metres in MN-047. A map of drill hole locations
is available on Enexco's website.

About Mann Lake Uranium Project
The Mann Lake Uranium Project is located in the heart of what is
indisputably the most prolific and highest grade uranium region in
the world, the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan. The Project lies 25
kilometres southwest from Cameco's McArthur River Mine and is 20
kilometres northeast of Cameco's Millennium deposit. High-grade
mineralization was intersected in drill hole MN-013 during the 2006
drill program. This drill hole intersected 7.12% U3O8 over 0.25
metres and 5.53% U3O8 over 0.4 metres in the basement, 12 metres
beneath the Athabasca unconformity surface.
