Thursday, February 14, 2013

Fission Energy Acquires Additional Ground South of PLS07:30 EST Thursday, February 14, 2013KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 14, 2013) -FISSION ENERGY CORP. ("Fission" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:FIS)(OTCQX:FSSIF) is pleased to announce that it has staked three additional claims on the southern border of the Company's Patterson Lake South (PLS) project (a 50/50 joint venture with Alpha Minerals Inc.). The newly acquired ground is referred to as the Clearwater West Project and is owned 100% by Fission.The claims are located 7km south of the mineralized boulder field and 12.5km south of the mineralized holes on the PLS property and comprise a total area of 11,535.39ha.The acquisition of the Clearwater West claims is part of Fission's objective to stake highly prospective areas where the target depth of uranium mineralization is expected to be shallow, as is the case with the PLS and Patterson Lake properties. The newly acquired claims fall within the same NE-SW oriented magnetic low corridor which hosts the PLS high-grade uranium boulder field and discovery drill holes. Discovery hole PLS12-024 returned assays of 18.0m @ 1.78% U3O8 and hole PLS12-022, 8.5m @ 1.07% U3O8 (see news release dated December 5, 2012). The uranium model that is envisioned on the Clearwater West Project is analogous to the structurally controlled Athabasca Basin unconformity deposits, which are generally associated within hydrothermally altered, structurally controlled metasedimentary lithology, which appear as magnetic lows on a magnetic geophysics survey.Updated maps showing the location of the Clearwater West Project claims can be found on the Company's website at http://www.fission-energy.com/s/Clearwater.asp.
