VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ALPHA EXPLORATION INC. ("Alpha" or the "Company") (TSX-V:AEX) is pleased to announce that its summer exploration program has completed at the Carpenter Lake Project ("Carpenter Lake", or the "Property"), Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Work completed by Alpha over the past 6 months includes:
- An airborne time domain EM and horizontal magnetic gradiometer survey (V-TEM) in February, 2014, and a detailed, low-altitude, airborne gamma spectrometer survey by Goldak Airborne Surveys. The integration of these two surveys outlined targets with respect to radioactive anomalies associated with conductors:
- Radon-in-water and radon-in-soil survey in March-April, 2014 (see Alpha's News Release dated May 21, 2014):
- A boulder prospecting program in August, 2014 to follow-up targets defined from integrated airborne geophysical and ground geochemical anomalies. Prospecting teams supervised by Discovery Consultants worked for three weeks in August and collected a total of 71 rock samples;
- Detailed follow-up radon-in-soil and soil geochemical surveys to enhance targets established from previous surveys in April. Radon work was completed in September by RadonEx.
Alpha continues to compile and integrate all available data from government surveys and historical assessment reports while it awaits geochemical data from work this summer. The Company will evaluate and prioritize potential drill targets later this fall and will release plans for winter work once programs and budgets are approved.
