DISCOVERY-FOCUSED. DISTRICT-SCALE TENURE.
Athabasca Nuclear Corporation (TSXV: ASC) is a shareholder-orientated exploration company focused on high-impact discovery regions experiencing active exploration by leading exploration companies in Canada.
Uranium Exploration in the Southwest Athabasca Basin
We are one of the largest mineral claim holders in the Patterson Lake South Uranium District located within the Western Athabasca Basin. We have partnered with multiple companies to third-party fund substantial and ongoing exploration programs, including drilling, at Athabasca Nuclear’s Preston Uranium Project, our most-advanced uranium exploration project. Our Preston Uranium Project is located in close proximity to the recent high-grade uranium discoveries made by Fission Uranium Corp. at PLS (the Triple R uranium deposit) and NexGen Energy Ltd.’s Arrow uranium discovery.
Diamond Exploration in the Pikoo Diamond District
Athabasca Nuclear Corp. is a significant tenure holder in the Pikoo diamond district. We operate the Prongua Lake Property, which is located within the Pikoo Diamond Camp located in the Saskatchewan Sask Craton. The Prongua Lake Property is located adjacent and up-ice to North Arrow Minerals, who first discovered kimberlite bodies at their Pikoo project. In addition, Athabasca Nuclear recently secured more high-priority mineral tenure in the Pikoo diamond region through our Pikoo North Property.
Uranium Exploration in the Wollaston NE Trend
Beyond the Western Athabasca Basin, Athabasca Nuclear Corporation holds under option 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. Like the Western Athabasca Basin where deposits such as Triple R (PLS) and Arrow have recently emerged, the Wollaston trend is underexplored compared for basement-model deposits. 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 and Roughrider Exploration surround our Wollaston NE property.read more
