Well-known geologist Jody Dahrouge brings his 25 years of experience to Athabasca Basin uranium explorer Lakeland Resources’ (TSXV:LK) board of directors, the company announced April 23. With a wide range of Canadian and international experience, Dahrouge served as president/COO of Fission Energy, the predecessor of Fission Uranium TSX:FCU. He played a key role in the company’s acquisition of Waterbury Lake, Patterson Lake and Patterson Lake South. Waterbury Lake became the scene of the J-zone discovery, while PLS now hosts the Triple R deposit.
Since 1998 he’s been president of Dahrouge Geological Consulting, working with a broad range of public and private exploration and mining companies. As a professional geologist, Dahrouge holds B.Sc. degrees in both geology and computer science.
“We are very pleased to have Mr. Dahrouge as part of the Lakeland team,” stated president/CEO Jonathan Armes. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the board. We look forward to Jody’s contributions and leadership as we continue to establish ourselves as a significant presence in the Athabasca Basin.”
Last month the company completed a successful 14-hole, 2,550-metre winter drill program that found anomalous radioactivity at its Star/Gibbon’s Creek project on the Basin’s northern rim. While assays are pending, initial results show “alteration suggestive of a proximal basement-hosted or unconformity-hosted uranium occurrence,” said Armes.
Lakeland also holds drill-ready projects at Newnham Lake, east of Star/Gibbon’s, and Lazy Edward Bay on the Basin’s southern margin. In February the company expanded its holdings to 32 properties totalling over 300,000 hectares, giving Lakeland one of the Basin region’s largest portfolios.
