The Jenny Lake Property is located on Lower Foster Lake, 65 kilometers SSE of the Key Lake
mine, in northern Saskatchewan. The 2891 ha property covers prospective
stratigraphy of Lower Wollaston Group graphite-bearing semi-pelites and calc-silicate
metaarkoses, which unconformably overlie granite gneiss of the Archean Anderson Lake Inlier. These rocks are typical of basement lithologies that comprise the lower ore bodies of major
unconformity-related, world class uranium mines found at Key Lake and Eagle Point.
Eagle Plains Resources has been exploring the greater property area since 2007, having
completed an airborne magnetic and EM survey during that year, followed by prospecting,
stream-silt, lake-silt and rock sampling programs from 2007-2010. Rock sampling over that time
returned up to 690 ppm U and 12000 ppm TREE. Lake sediment sample results are very
anomalous on the property. Out of approximately 300 lake samples collected in the greater
Foster Lakes region, samples collected from the bottom of Lower Foster Lake returned the
highest uranium and radon values in the dataset at 76 ppm U and 460 pCi/l.
The fact that these geochemical results come from a lake that is underlain by a known
unconformity, hosting graphite (U-reducing) lithologies, is considered highly encouraging as a
potential uranium unconformity drill target. Numerous pegmatite exposures along the
unconformity are also strongly anomalous in rare earth elements (REE), thorium and uranium
and represent alternate targets of interest.
