Third drill rig commences at Klappibacken uranium project in Sweden
VANCOUVER, Feb. 4 - Mawson Resources Limited ("Mawson") TSXv - MAW; Frankfurt - MRY. Michael Hudson, President & CEO, announces that a third drill rig has commenced drilling at the Klappibacken uranium project in north-western Sweden, where a 5,000-metre diamond drill program is underway this winter.
Since December 2007, the two rigs previously mobilized to site have completed 8 drill holes for 1,793 metres. With the addition of a third drill rig, the Company now has two concentrating on drilling the immediate extensions to mineralization, while the third is focusing on testing previously reported radon cup anomalies to identify new sites of mineralization within a 1 kilometre radius of the Klappibacken resource area.
Mr Hudson states, "Our confidence, commitment and ability to test the Klappibacken uranium project is demonstrated by the mobilization of this third rig. We look forward to receiving the first drill results in over the next few weeks."
