With operations on three continents, Cameco is proud to be an active and engaged member of the diverse communities in which we operate.
We recognize the importance of sharing timely, local information about our operations, community investments and the opportunities Cameco can provide, with our neighbours around the world.
Australia, home to the world's largest known uranium reserves, is a big part of Cameco's plans for the future. We've been actively exploring for uranium in Australia since 1996 and are involved in several projects across the country, including two of Australia's largest undeveloped uranium deposits, Yeelirrie and Kintyre. Our Australian office is located in metropolitan Perth.
Cameco is a major supplier of uranium processing services required to produce fuel for the generation of clean electricity. Our fuel services division has three locations in Ontario: a refinery in Blind River, a conversion facility in Port Hope, and a fuel manufacturing operation with locations in Port Hope and Cobourg.
We're proud to call northern Saskatchewan the home of our largest producing operations, including our newest mine, Cigar Lake. We are Canada's largest industrial employer of Aboriginal people and our experts help Cameco maintain safe operations and protect the environment.
Cameco Resources is America's largest uranium producer. Our mines in Wyoming and Nebraska use an environmentally friendly in situ recovery mining process where uranium is extracted from wellfields, rather than open pits or underground shafts.
