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
U3O8.biz : Jun 27, 2016 - Brexit: Impact on Britain's Nuclear Program -
With the Brexit vote behind us and 52 percent of its voters wanting to leave the European Union, some are saying the UK's decision to separate will boost their nuclear energy program.
A recent Forbes article stated that the UK will be able to keep its new carbon tax and eliminate the EU Emissions Trading Scheme, which the publication reported has "been a relative loss for UK companies who have purchased more credits than they have sold."
Additionally, the article noted that Britain won't have to follow the EU's "renewable energy" standards, but instead will be able to establish its own rules to allow for other solutions that include nuclear energy as "a major contributor to the targets."
Companies still committed to UK nuclear new build program
EDF Energy, one of Britain's largest producers of low-carbon electricity, in addition to NuGeneration and ....

Facts (Source: World Nuclear Association)
Uranium is a naturally-occurring element in the Earth's crust. Traces of it occur almost everywhere, although mining takes place in locations where it is naturally concentrated. To make nuclear fuel from the uranium ore requires first for the uranium to be extracted from the rock in which it is found, then enriched in the uranium-235 isotope, before being made into pellets that are loaded into the nuclear fuel assembly.
Uranium mines operate in some twenty countries, though about half of world production comes from just ten mines in six countries, in Canada, Australia, Niger, Kazakhstan, Russia and Namibia.
At conventional mines, the ore goes through a mill where it is first crushed. It is then ground in water to produce a slurry of fine ore particles suspended in the water. The slurry is leached with sulphuric acid to dissolve the uranium oxides, leaving the remaining rock and other minerals undissolved, as mine tailings.
However, nearly half the world's mines now use a mining method called in situ leaching (ISL). This means that the mining is accomplished without any major ground disturbance. Groundwater with a lot of oxygen injected into it is circulated through the uranium ore, extracting the uranium. The solution with dissolved uranium is pumped to the surface.
Both mining methods produce a liquid with uranium dissolved in it. This is filtered and the uranium then separated by ion exchange, precipitated from the solution, filtered and dried to produce a uranium oxide concentrate (U3O8), which is then sealed in drums. This concentrate may be a bright yellow colour, hence known as 'yellowcake', or if dried at high temperatures it is khaki.
