TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb 7, 2013) - Ateba Resources Inc. ("Ateba" or the "Company") (CNSX:ATR) is pleased to provide an update on its Elliot Lake property. The property borders the Pele Mountain Eco Ridge Mine and Rare Earths property in Elliot Lake Ontario. The Elliot Lake Property is located in the Sault Ste. Marie Mining Division in Joubin and Gunterman townships. The property comprises 25 contiguous leased mining claims, where all patented mining rights are registered 100% in the name of Ateba.
The Ateba Elliot Lake property hosts the same structure as found at Eco Ridge, the Pardee Reef, in which both the mineralized deposits occur. Given its proximity and comparable geology, Ateba management believes there is reason to expect similar uranium and REO values on its property as those found at Eco Ridge. In a recent press release (January 29, 2013) http://www.pelemountain.com/news-release.php?id=741 Pele Mountain released the results of a 13 hole drill program, where several of the holes exceeded average U3O8 grade and total REO grade as that found in the NI 43-1010 compliant resource on the Eco Ridge Property. This was a step out drill program to the northwest and west of the existing resource wireframe.
"Several of the holes from The Pele Mountain step out drill program were within a few hundred metres of our property border," commented Bill Dickie, President and CEO of Ateba Resources. "Our geologists have long speculated that the geology of both properties is one of a continuous pebbled conglomerate and we believe the close proximity and the excellent grade of these drill results lend further credence to our theory."
