VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Senator Minerals Inc. (TSX-V:SNR) (OTC:SNRAF) (Frankfurt:T1KA) (“Senator” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has completed its initial interpretation of radon gas results for its Carter Lake and PNE uranium projects, both of which are located on the west side of the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan. The results confirmed that the highest concentrations of radon gas observed in the 2017 programs on both projects strongly correlated with the faulting in the subsurface sandstones and with EM conductors interpreted through both ground and airborne geophysics.  This strong correlation suggests that the radon gas at Carter Lake and PNE is likely the result of a subsurface radioactive source.  As such, the Company’s exploration team intends to undertake a highly detailed diamond drilling plan to test both projects.

A total of 158 sensors from the Carter Lake project and 184 from the PNE project were evaluated by Alpha Track Labs of Vancouver, BC.  At both projects, sensors were deployed in arrays covering large extents of subsurface conductive anomalies, which were identified through geophysical interpretations. The investigation of subsurface conductive zones that correlate strongly with structural breaks is the gold standard for uranium exploration in the Athabasca.  The results, which ranged from a high of 29 T/mm2 to a low of <1 T/mm2, suggesting that both the Carter Lake and PNE target zones host anomalous concentrations of uranium.  Anomalous radon gas, which is a product of uranium decay, gives a direct correlation to the presence of subsurface uranium.

Regarding the results, Dr. Peter Born P.Geo. commented, “The Company is very pleased with the results, which have met our highest expectations.”

Dr. Peter Born P.Geo., a Qualified Person, has reviewed and approved the disclosure of technical information within this news release.
