Athabasca Nuclear Corporation (TSXV: ASC) is a shareholder-orientated exploration company focused on high-impact discovery regions.

Lithium Exploration in Canada

ASC holds a leading position in the Whabouchi Lithium District located near Nemaska, Quebec through our 100% interests in the Spodumene Lake and Dumont Lithium Projects. Our spodumene lithium exploration projects are in close proximity to the Whabouchi lithium deposit being advanced by Nemaska Lithium Inc.

ASC in the Whabouchi Lithium District

ASC also holds a 100% royalty-free interest in the Torp Lake and Phoenix lithium deposits.

In addition to our Whabouchi lithium spodumene exploration projects in Quebec, we also have lithium exposure at our exploration-stage Brazil Lake Lithium Project and Beaverhill Lithium Brine Project.

Uranium Exploration in the Southwest Athabasca Basin

ASC is one of the largest mineral claim holders in the Patterson Lake South Uranium District located within the Western Athabasca Basin. We hold a 50% interest in our Preston Uranium Project, Athabasca Nuclear’s most-advanced uranium exploration project (see the 43-101 Technical Report). 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.

Uranium Exploration in the Wollaston NE Trend

Outside the Western Athabasca Basin, Athabasca Nuclear Corporation owns 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.

Gold, Copper and Diamond Exploration Optionality

Athabasca Nuclear Corp. also holds various other mineral tenure positions, including mineral tenure on multiple copper and gold projects in British Columbia which the company acquired in 2016. Learn more about our Hat East Project and our TREK Project. We also have exposure to the Pikoo diamond camp through our Prongua Lake project.
