Paterson is an early-stage project in Western Australia covering five exploration licence applications (two currently granted), which partly surrounds and abuts the Kintyre project.
Paterson (3,813 hectares) is 100% owned by Cameco while the Rudall River component (6,037 hectares) is a joint venture with Uranium Equities Limited (UEL). Cameco has a 60% interest in Rudall River and will manage the project.
The project land is located about 450 km east of Port Hedland near the western edge of the Great Sandy Desert. It is in close proximity to the more advanced Kintyre uranium project, now 70% owned by Cameco. The Rudall complex geology is considered an area with unrealized potential requiring further work using modern exploration techniques.
