- The title of world's largest uranium producer belongs to the the McArthur River-Key Lake tandem operation located in northern Saskatchewan, Canada.
- Cameco operates both ISO 14001 certified locations which have been in production since 1999 and 1983 respectively.
- Combined, these two operations have reliably produced more than 518 million lbs using a variety of mining methods best-suited for the ground conditions.
Q1 2017 Update
Production for the first quarter was 24% higher compared to the same period in 2016 due to the timing of planned maintenance. Last year, a planned first quarter mill shut down resulted in lower first quarter production while in 2017, maintenance activities are expected to be completed during an extended six-week shut down planned for the third quarter.
