GRADE-FOCUSED. DISTRICT-SCALE TENURE.
Athabasca Nuclear Corporation (TSXV: ASC) is a Calgary-based exploration company focused on high-impact discovery regions experiencing active exploration by leading geologists and exploration companies in Canada.
We are the largest mineral claim holder in the Patterson Lake South Uranium District and have partnered with multiple companies to deliver substantial and ongoing exploration programs, including drilling, at our Preston Uranium Project. Our Preston Uranium Project is located in close proximity to the recent high-grade uranium discoveries made by Fission Uranium Corp. at PLS and NexGen Energy Ltd. at Arrow.
Athabasca Nuclear Corporation has recently closed its acquisition of the Wollaston NE Project, an approx. 200,000 acre property within the prolific Wollaston Tectonic Domain. The Wollaston Tectonic Domain is located on the eastern side of the Athabasca Basin and is host to a majority of current and historic uranium production in the Athabasca Basin. Historic basement hosted mineralization at deposits such as McArthur River and more recent discoveries such as Roughrider and Gryphon demonstrate the potential of this basement domain to host significant uranium occurrences. Northern Uranium (being advised by Charles Fipke) and Roughrider Exploration (being advised by Dale Wallster) surround our Wollaston NE property.
Athabasca Nuclear Corporation also recently announced that it would acquire Strike Graphite Corp. to gain access to their 1,300,000 acres of mineral tenure in the emerging Pikoo diamond district where Gren Thomas’s North Arrow Minerals Inc. has made a significant diamond discovery in the Sask Craton. Strike Graphite Corp. is holding a shareholder meeting on October 7, 2014 to vote on the proposed plan of arrangement.
Management at Athabasca Nuclear Corporation has effectively positioned fellow shareholders at the heart of some of Canada’s most exciting mineral discoveries which in turn brings the unique attribute of attracting investment funding during challenging conditions for the junior resource equity markets.
