Located along the largely unexplored region of the northern Athabasca Basin, the Northern Athabasca Project site spans 80 kilometres, is located just south of Fond du Lac, Saskatchewan, and is adjacent to the Black Lake and Riou Lake properties.
Exploration is at an early stage, and to date airborne and ground geophysical surveys and drilling in widely spaced diamond drill holes have been completed. Although outside the well-known, uranium-bearing eastern portions of the Athabasca Basin, the potential for uranium mineralization in the area has been demonstrated by the nearby Fond du Lac Deposit and other prospects, and by unconformity-style uranium mineralization which has been intersected in drilling by UEX on the adjacent Black Lake property.
UEX continues to evaluate the uranium exploration potential of the Northern Athabasca Projects.
