Dawn Lake

Dawn Lake is an established joint venture in the eastern Athabasca Basin operated by Cameco. In addition to work on the Tamarack deposit, we are evaluating various regional targets with discovery potential at depths of less than 300 metres. At 175 metres below surface, the Tamarack deposit holds potential for an open pit mine. The Tamarack deposit is about 600 metres long, 30 metres wide and an average 15 metres thick.


Exploration Objectives

  • Continue to explore for new deposits and delineate and expand the resources
  • Characterize and test drill in priority areas along known mineralized trends
  • Continue to delineate the Tamarack deposit and advance toward pre-feasibility stage
