Carpenter Lake, Uranium

The Cable Bay Shear Zone (“CBSZ”) is a crustal-scale, regional lithotectonic domain boundary, nearby and parallel to the Virgin River Shear Zone which separates the Rae and Hearne provinces of Archean and Proterozoic crystalline rocks. Major structures are a critical element to the formation of unconformity-type uranium deposits. The property covers the southern portion of the CBSZ where it crosses the southern margin of the Athabasca Basin.

Current Exploration


The uranium exploration potential of the Carpenter Lake property is underscored by the numerous uranium anomalies in historical lake sediment samples, reinforced further by airborne radiometric anomalies both along and west of the of the Cable Bay Shear Zone (CBSZ). The corridor of well-defined conductors along the CBSZ further highlights the potential for uranium mineralization along the regional structure, in particular where there is evidence for cross-cutting structures. The presence of conductive graphitic pelites as defined by airborne and ground electromagnetic surveys is confirmed by historic diamond drilling immediately north of the property.

In light of the vast improvement in the understanding of both the regional geology and tectonic history of northern Saskatchewan in the past 20 years, and the importance of structure in the formation of unconformity-type uranium deposits, the overall uranium potential of the Carpenter Lake property is vastly underexplored.
