Senator Minerals Completes Site Visit to PNE and Carter Lake Projects in Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Senator Minerals Inc. (TSX-V:SNR) (OTC:SNRAF) (Frankfurt:T1KA) (“Senator” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company’s geological team has completed site visits to both the Patterson Northeast (PNE) and Carter Lake Uranium Projects in the western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan. The site visits confirmed both access and local infrastructure for the upcoming 2017 Phase One radon gas survey program. The visits also provided an opportunity for regional scale reconnaissance of the projects and to assess their possible relations to known deposits, including the Arrow and PLS deposits. The Company is now preparing for deployment of the field crew to the PNE Project to commence survey work.
The Company also announces that it has received commitments for the full $2.5 million of its previously announced private placement. Subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, the Company anticipates closing of the placement to occur in the next week.
