KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 5, 2011) - FISSION ENERGY CORP. ("Fission" or "the Company") (TSX:FIS - News; OTCQX:FSSIF), and its 50% Joint Venture (JV) partner ESO Uranium Corp., announce the completion of its boulder prospecting and radon survey program:
-- An additional twenty radioactive boulders and hot spots were discovered
on the Patterson Lake South Property claims for a total of seventy-four.
-- Of this latest total, forty-two or 57% produced "off-scale" (greater
than 9,999 counts per second (cps)) radioactive readings, as measured by
hand held Exploranium GR-110G total count gamma-ray scintillometers.
-- Four claims comprising an area of 12,217 ha (approx. 30,000 acres) have
been acquired by staking, bringing the combined land holdings to twelve
claims totalling 25,450 ha (approx. 63,000 acres).
-- The uranium boulder field now exceeds 4km in its longest N-S dimension
and is up to 0.9 kms in its E-W dimension.
Samples have been submitted to SRC Geoanalytical Laboratories (an SCC ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 Accredited Facility) of Saskatoon for analysis, which include a 63 element ICP-OES, uranium by fluorimetry (partial digestion). Assays will be reported when available.A summary of the boulder and soil descriptions, in addition to a map updating the new claim boundaries at Patterson Lake South can be reviewed on the Company's website: http://www.fission-energy.com/PattersonLakeSouth.asp.The Patterson Lake South Property is accessible by all weather Highway 955, which runs north to the former Cluff Lake Mine, (greater than 60M lbs of U(3)O(8) produced). Several of the deposits that made up the Cluff Lake Mine were located by following up uranium boulder fields significantly smaller than those discovered by the JV. While there is no certainty that any in situ uranium deposits will be discovered on the property, the next challenge for the JV is to locate and define the source of its uranium boulders.The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101 and reviewed on behalf of the company by Ross McElroy, P.Geol., President and COO for Fission Energy Corp., a Qualified Person.This press release contains "forward-looking information" that is based on Fission's current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections.
