2006-04-04 News Release
Drilling is also planned to investigate the YS target where 45 metres of vertical structural displacement was defined by shallow drilling. “YS is one of the most attractive targets of the first phase of Quaterra’s drilling on the project,” said company president, Dr.Thomas Patton. He reported that Beeman Drilling Company of Moab , UT has been contracted to implement the drilling program and Geophysical Logging Service of Prescott, Arizona will conduct the down-hole geophysical logging.
Patton noted that Quaterra’s uranium properties in northern Arizona now cover approximately 10 square miles (25.9 square kilometers) over selected areas within the heart of the uranium district. All of the company’s targets are within a few miles of uraniferous breccia pipes. Additional properties are being evaluated for acquisition as the program continues during 2006.
The company also reported completion of an eight hole, 5,894 meter drilling program at its Nieves silver prospect in Zacatecas State, Mexico . Results are expected to be available in the next two to three weeks.
