Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. Commences Exploration at Wollaston Project, Saskatchewan
Jul 21 15
Eagle Plains Resources has mobilized field crews to commence 2015 exploration on its' Wollaston uranium project, located within the Athabasca region of north-central Saskatchewan. Access to the property area north of LaRonge was recently opened by officials as the risk from forest fires has abated. The Wollaston claims are located along Highway 905, an all-season road with access to the nearby Rabbit Lake and Cigar Lake uranium mines. The 6300 ha, road-accessible property was staked by Eagle Plains in early 2011, based on prospective airborne radiometric anomalies and coincident lake-sediment U and REE anomalies proximal to a published Saskatchewan Mineral Index showing. The mineral claims are 100% owned by Eagle Plains Resources and carry no underlying royalties or encumbrances. Fieldwork by Eagle Plains from 2011-2014 revealed anomalous radioactivity along a 460 m strike length of Wollaston metasediments intruded by numerous sills and mineralized fractures. Ten grab samples were collected along the 460 m strike length, two of which returned very significant mineralization: 7.05% and 1.40% U3O8 respectively, with up to 2.93% ThO2, 16700 ppm lead, and 1167 ppm TREE (total rare-earth elements). The claim group region is comprised of Archean granite inliers, overlain by calc-silicate and graphite- bearing metasedimentary rocks of the Wollaston Group, all of which have been intruded by pegmatite dykes and stocks. This sequence of basement rocks is similar to those that host the lower ore bodies of the Eagle Point Mine, and as such, basement-hosted unconformity-style mineralization remains a viable target deposit type.
Eagle Plains Resources Ltd Announces the Acquisition and Completion of Thorough Geological Data Compilation of the Eisler Property
Apr 15 15
Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. announced the acquisition and completion of a thorough geological data compilation of the Eisler Property, located 16km south of the producing Seabee mine and 130km northeast of LaRonge, Saskatchewan. The claims consist of 8 mineral tenures comprising 3831 hectares owned 100% by Eagle Plains, with no underlying royalties or encumbrances. Eisler Property Highlights: Property hosts shear zone with width ranging from 3.9 to 18.7 m over 2.5km strike length. Geological setting and mineralization similar to that at nearby Seabee Mine. Historic diamond drilling returned up to 4.0 g/t Au over 4.5m at DD occurrence. Trenching across DD occurrence returned between 1.02 to 7.36 g/t Au. Numerous geophysical and geochemical targets untested. Property Geology and Mineralization. The Eisler Property is underlain by rocks of the Glennie Domain which are located in the hanging wall block of the north-south trending Tabbernor Lake fault system – a major crustal shear system transecting the Trans Hudson orogeny, which has been traced over 1500 km from the Wollaston Lake area of northern Saskatchewan to North Dakota. Splays of the Tabbernor Lake fault system in the Laonil Lake region contain mineralized veins similar to ore-hosting structures at the Seabee mine. The Seabee mine of Claude Resources Inc. has been in operation since 1991 producing a total of 1 million ounces as of August, 2012 at an average grade of 0.23 oz/ton Au (7.89 g/t). Management cautions that past results or discoveries on proximate land are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved on the Eisler property. Exploration to date by past operators has focused on the DD occurrence, which consists of intrusive rocks equivalent to those which host Seabee ore-bearing structures. Chip sampling in 1986 across the main DD-showing shear systems returned 6 strongly anomalous samples with assays between 1.02 to 7.36 g/t Au. A follow-up 21 hole diamond drill program completed in 1987 intercepted numerous shear hosted quartz veins with anomalous gold values. Geophysical surveys traced the shear along strike for over 2.5 km, while diamond drilling over 1.5 km of strike-length defined the shear width ranging from 3.9 to 18.7 m true width. Anomalous assays from 9 holes testing this shear system ranged between 0.96 g/t to 9.86 g/t Au. One of the best intercepts in hole 87-15 returned 4.0 g/t Au over 4.5m.

Eagle Plains Resources Commences Exploration on Rohan Project, North Western British Columbia
Sep 29 14
Rosedale Resources Ltd. has announced that Eagle Plains Resources that field crews have been mobilized to commence fieldwork on EPL's 100%-owned Rohan property, located in northwestern British Columbia 80km NW of Atlin. The property is well-situated along the White Pass rail line, 60 kilometres north of the port of Skagway, Alaska, with barge access to the property from Carcross, Yukon. Rosedale holds the exclusive right to earn a 60% interest in the property. The property was acquired by Eagle Plains in 2010 and covers a 6km span of the prospective Llewellyn/Tally-Ho shear zone, part of a larger 150 km-long crustal-scale fault system, host to numerous gold, silver and base-metal properties. The land package overlies several regional stream-silt (RGS) anomalies that includes better than 95th percentile values for gold, copper, antimony, arsenic and lead. The under-explored property area is considered to have excellent potential for precious-metal discoveries. In 2011, Rosedale/Eagle Plains completed a 200 line-km airborne geophysical survey, followed in 2013 by helicopter-supported silt/soil sampling and prospecting. This work resulted in the discovery of an area of extremely anomalous soil values, with precious-metal values returning up to 2.96 g/t gold and 18.4 g/t silver, with associated elevated values for arsenic, antimony, lead, zinc and iron. The 2014 work program is designed to follow up on results from the successful 2013 program and will focus on mapping, prospecting, hand-trenching and sampling of the 2013 discovery area. Fieldwork is being completed by TerraLogic Exploration Inc. of Cranbrook, BC under the supervision of Mike McCuaig, P.Geo.
