2019 Q3 Update
US ISR Operations
As a result of our 2016 curtailment decision, commercial production has ceased. As long as production is suspended, we expect ongoing cash and non-cash care and maintenance costs to range between $11 million (US) and $13 million (US) annually.
Environment & Safety
Worker safety, environmental monitoring and proper decommissioning after project completion are of the utmost importance to Cameco.
Reserves & Resources
Our mineral reserves and resources are the foundation of our company and fundamental to our success.
