Feature Presentation
The Athabasca Basin in Northern Saskatchewan hosts the world's largest and highest grade uranium deposits accounting for 1/3 of the global uranium supply, a figure which is expected to increase significantly by the end of the decade. The Basin has witnessed a rush in claim staking activity since 2004 due to the rise in the price of uranium to about US$40/lb (March 13, 2006). At present, there are more than 30 companies exploring for uranium in the Basin.

Uranium Market Commentary : Sep 26, 2014 - Fission Uranium: Opportunity in an Undervalued Market -
When it comes to delivering consistently positive results in a tough market, Fission Uranium (TSXV:FCU) has certainly delivered. Between the company's 2014 winter drill program, and the 2014 summer drill program, Fission has caught the attention of investors with its high grade results hole after hole. Today's news was no different.
Fission's latest news, though seemingly ignored by the market, should also be perceived as a step in the right direction for the company.
On Thursday, the uranium junior announced results from from 21 of its 22 regional drill holes at PLS. The results encountered anomalous radioactivity in three new conductors. While it may be too soon to tell, given the company's track record, these results may be worth keeping an eye on as they could form the basis for ...
Facts (Source: Uranium Information Centre Ltd)
Over half of the world's production of uranium from mines is in Canada and Australia. Canada produces the largest share of uranium from mines (29% of world supply from mines), followed by Australia (21%).
Canada has two relatively new mines which have come into production: Cogema's McClean Lake mine started up in 1999 and is producing almost 3000 t/yr U3O8 (2550 tU). Cameco's McArthur River deposit has enormous high-grade reserves and has started supplying ore from its underground mine to the Key Lake mill, to produce about 8200 t/yr U3O8 (7000 tU).
Two more are ready to develop: Cameco's Cigar Lake underground mine will truck ore for treatment at McClean Lake and Rabbit Lake mills, 80 km away, to produce 8200 t/yr U3O8 (7000 tU). Cogema's Midwest mine will be underground, and this ore also is likely to be milled at McClean Lake nearby, to produce 2600 t/yr U3O8 (2200 tU).
Thus by about 2006, Canadian output could be substantially be concentrated at two mills: McClean Lake producing over 9000 tU and Key Lake 7000 tU per year, with about 2500 t/yr coming from Rabbit Lake. All this will be over half of projected world mine production. (See also UIC Briefing paper #3 on Canada.)
In Australia Beverley, a 1000 tU/yr ISL mine in South Australia, started up late in 2000. Two further mines are under development. A similar-sized ISL mine under development is Honeymoon. These are similar to those providing most US uranium. Jabiluka, NT, is to be a conventional underground mine, though its production will be phased in to match the decline of Ranger.
With the ISL mines plus Ranger and the expanded Olympic Dam, Australian uranium production is likely to reach some 9000 tonnes U per year. This will be almost a quarter of projected world mine production. (See also UIC Briefing paper #1 on Australia)
