Fission Uranium (FCUUF.OB) agrees to acquire Alpha Minerals (ESOFF.PK) for $185M in stock, attempting to create a potential takeover target that could appeal to a larger producer such as Cameco (CCJ) or Areva (ARVCF.PK).

The junior miners have been releasing impressive drilling results from their Patterson Lake South project in Saskatchewan's Athabasca Basin.
