Development Progress

We believe that we have some of the best undeveloped uranium projects in the world. However, in the current market environment our primary focus is on preserving the value of our tier-one uranium assets. We continue to await a signal from the market that additional production is needed prior to making any new development decisions.

No work is planned at Kintyre. Further progress towards a development decision is not expected until market conditions improve.

Environmental Assessments

A number of studies have been completed to evaluate the potential effects during the construction, operation, and decommissioning of the Kintyre project.
