GTI Activities Report, December Quarter 2023 

Mining is prepared to start at the McClean North deposit in 2025, with 2024 activities anticipated to concentrate on preparations essential to prepared the existing SABRE mining website and devices for constant industrial operations, along with the setup of 8 pilot holes for the very first mining cavities prepared for excavation. The authorized budget plan for this operate in 2024 is $7 million (100% basis).

Around 800,000 pounds U 3 O 8 (100% basis) are targeted for production from McClean North in 2025, with around 3,000,000 pounds U 3 O 8 (100% basis) determined for prospective extra production from a mix of the McClean North and Caribou deposits throughout the years 2026 to 2030.

Jim Corman , Orano Canada’s President and Ceo, stated, Our present capability to take advantage of the reinforcing uranium and nuclear markets is the outcome of a long-lasting financial investment in R&D within Orano and the MLJV to protected continue d activities at the McClean Lake operation well into the future. The foundation we do over the course of 2024, is anticipated to put the MLJV in position to see SABRE in action and to start production in 2025. It is expected that the McClean Lake mill will have adequate capability to process this ore, while continuing with dedicated scheduled production from Stogie Lake. It’s an interesting time for staff members, partners , and the market as we go back to a concentrate on development.

David Cates , Denison’s President and Ceo, commented, “The reboot of uranium mining at McClean Lake is a significant turning point for the MLJV and Denison. Mining at McClean Lake was suspended in 2008 in reaction to decreasing uranium rates. Throughout the interim 15 years, the MLJV bought the advancement of an exclusive mining technique created to selectively draw out state-of-the-art Athabasca Basin uranium ores from surface area. The effective mining test of the SABRE technique in 2021 supplied the MLJV with essential details about the efficiency and expense of SABRE operations. This details recommends a reward rate meaningfully lower than present uranium rates, which has actually supplied the JV with a strong basis to make a reboot choice for mining at McClean Lake.

We wish to thank our associates at Orano Canada for their efforts to establish the SABRE technique to a commercial-ready state, which has actually enabled the joint endeavor to decide to resume production at McClean Lake.”


SABRE is the conclusion of a mining devices development and advancement effort that started in 2004 and concluded in 2021 with the conclusion of multi-year mining test program that effectively excavated around 1,500 tonnes of high-value ore. It is a non-entry, surface-based mining technique that utilizes a high-pressure water jet positioned at the bottom of a drill hole to excavate a mining cavity. The cuttings from the excavation procedure are then air raised to surface area, separated, and stocked. SABRE is deemed an ingenious mining technique that has the prospective to enable financial access to reasonably little state-of-the-art orebodies in the Athabasca Basin that are either too little or unfathomable to be mined financially by standard open-pit and/or underground mining approaches.

SABRE is special because the mining technique can be selective and scalable, which has the prospective to offer exceptional versatility when compared to standard mining approaches and is hence preferably fit to ever altering uranium market conditions– with an anticipated production increase of months rather of years. The SABRE technique has ecological benefits when compared to standard open pit or underground mining approaches as an outcome of its less invasive nature and smaller sized surface area footprint. Decreased water use and power intake likewise add to essential decreases in greenhouse gas emissions and enhanced sustainability. In addition, as a non-entry mining technique, radiological direct exposure for mine employees is reduced.

For extra details about the SABRE mining test finished in 2021, please describe the Orano Canada and the Denison joint press release dated November 3, 2021
