Kelowna, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – June 14, 2022) – Fission 3.0 Corp. (TSXV: FUU) (OTCQB: FISOF) (“Fission 3“) and Traction Uranium Corp. (“Traction“) are pleased to provide an update of the drilling at the Lazy Edward Bay project in the SE Athabasca Basin region which commenced on May 17, 2022. Drilling on the Horse West conductor has encountered anomalous radioactivity in drill hole LEB22-007 in proximity to an 11.7m-wide basement fault with intense clay and chlorite alteration ~10m further down hole. Drilling is currently targeting this significant structure up dip at the unconformity.
Drilling continues to encounter favourable structure, alteration and anomalous radioactivity in the vicinity of historic hole LE-73 on the West Horse conductor following the May 31, 2022 announcement of hole LEB22-004 having encountered anomalous radioactivity near the sandstone-basement unconformity at 164.6 m associated with a reverse fault. Elevated levels of radiation is a possible indicator of uranium mineralization which will be confirmed when the assays are received.
Hole LEB22-008 is in progress to test an 11.7m-wide extremely clay and chlorite altered basement structure along with proximal anomalous radioactivity intersected in hole LEB22-007 up-dip where it intersects the unconformity which is the 6th hole in the immediate vicinity of historic hole LE-73 along the western Horse Conductor. Hole LEB-007 targeted the same structure ~50m along strike to the north. It encountered elevated radioactivity in the lower sandstone of 380cps on the handheld spectrometer at 169.75m, corresponding on the downhole gamma probe with increased radioactivity >500 cps from 168.5 m to 169.5 m with a maximum of 1177 counts as well as from 171 m to 171.5 m with a maximum of 1063 cps. The unconformity was intersected at 173m and the large fault zone was intersected from 178.4 m and continued to 190.1m. Additional drill targets have been defined along the Western Horse Corridor from a re-interpretation of an airborne VTEM survey and which will be added to the program. The original target for the current drill program of 8 holes for 2000m has been increased to ~10 holes for 3000m because the team has been able to implement cost saving measures.
The ongoing work program is being funded by Traction in accordance with the terms of the Option Agreement between Fission 3 and Traction, whereby Traction can acquire up to a 70% interest in the Lazy Edward Bay property (see Dec 10, 2021 Fission 3 news release).
Natural gamma radiation in drill core that is reported in this news release was measured in counts per second (cps) using a handheld Radiation Solutions RS-125 scintillometer. Natural gamma radiation in the drill hole surveys that are reported in this news release was measured in counts per second (cps) using a Mount Sopris Instruments QL40-GRA borehole gamma probe. The reader is cautioned that scintillometer readings are not directly or uniformly related to uranium grades of the rock sample measured and should be used only as a preliminary indication of the presence of radioactive materials. All intersections are down-hole. All depths reported of core interval measurements of radioactivity are not always representative of true thickness.
The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101 and reviewed on behalf of the company by Raymond Ashley, P.Geo., Vice President, Exploration of Fission 3.0 Corp., a Qualified Person.

Nagad’s Digital Bank on cards, Sadaf to lead the side
Nagad, Bangladesh’s leading Mobile Financial Service (MFS) provider, is gearing up to establish the much-anticipated digital bank, as it is going to secure a licence from the Bangladesh Bank within a couple of months.
Sadaf Roksana, a co-founder and executive director of Nagad Ltd., has been entrusted with the responsibility of leading her company’s transformative venture that will bring greater convenience to the lives of millions of Bangladeshis, reducing their reliance on traditional brick-and-mortar banks.
The MFS provider earlier applied to secure a digital bank licence following the central bank’s call for applications through its website. The Bangladesh Bank also formulated necessary guidelines to widen and accelerate financial inclusion, which will also create jobs for young IT workers.
The world’s fastest mobile money carrier is going to venture into the digital banking era at a time when the financial landscape across the globe is fast evolving towards digitalisation, driven by technological advancements and changing consumer preferences.
Taking on the new assignment, Sadaf, a seasoned financial executive with a remarkable track record in the fintech industry, is poised to steer Nagad’s digital bank towards success. Once Nagad gets the digital bank licence, it will provide its consumers with innovative and convenient banking solutions.
“We are very excited that we are going to introduce digital banking services to the people of Bangladesh within a couple of months,” Sadaf said, adding, “This endeavour aligns perfectly with our vision of enhancing financial inclusion and ensuring easy access to all financial services also at affordable prices.”
Nagad is already well-equipped to launch a digital bank. It will start serving customers soon after getting the licence, Sadaf assured.
Under its digital banking platform, Nagad will introduce many new services, such as single-digit and collateral-free loans for small informal businesses and farmers who now are to take loans from moneylenders even at 40% interest rate per day, she pointed out.
“Thus, we will encourage them to come under financial inclusion, thus putting their money into the formal channel,” she expressed her optimism.
To assess one’s creditworthiness, Nagad has created an AI-based credit rating system that will analyse all transactions-related data available on public domains using one’s NID and mobile number, Sadaf Roksana added.
As Nagad goes ahead with its plans, all eyes will be on Sadaf Roksana and her team as they will embark on this exciting journey towards a more digitised and inclusive financial future for the country.
