Gladiator Resources (GLA) has completed initial mapping and sampling at the Eland Hill uranium project at the Eland project in southern Tanzania.
Initial research focused on systematic rock sampling and collection of scintillometer per second (cps) data in anomalous radiometric zones.
The company said all four targets showed multiple radiometric anomalies greater than 1,500 imp/s, with the maximum radiometric anomaly recorded at approximately 9,000 imp/s.
“We have confirmed broad areas with five to ten times the background radiation on all four targets, as well as specific readings that are 30 times the background, giving us more confidence in Eland’s uranium potential,” said managing director David Chidlow.
“We look forward to receiving assays as soon as possible, which may well allow us to identify drilling targets at Eland for testing after the rainy season.”
Now the company is preparing about 120 samples for laboratory analysis.
Nearby pegmatite developments have also been sampled and will be analyzed for individual elements including tungsten, lithium and tantalum.
The company said the tests should provide an indication of uranium levels and the surface area of potentially mineralized zones.
Samples will soon be sent to the lab with assays due in December, and Gladiator is looking forward to developing future drill targets as part of the project.
Gladiator shares were trading at 1.6 cents at market close.
