Onsite property reviews have con- firmed the previously discovered showings, as well as the presence of uranium miner- alization within fractures enclosed by three northeast striking shear zones. The adjoining 11,109 ha orbit proper- ty further covers the main Crackingstone Fault and some northeast trending exten- sions. Twelve uranium showings have been documented on the Orbit claims, including two with inclined shafts driven to a depth of some 50 feet, along with some drifting along the veins. saskatchewan Geological society records show the uranium assay values on that work ranged from 0.1% to 3.43% U3O8. Drilling on the Crackingstone property in 2008 showed uranium mineralization along the Boom Lake Fault extended over a strike distance of 1.8 km. hole C-14-08 returned the highest assay results with 3.0 m of 0.36% U3O8 (7.19 lbs/ton).
