Cameco has been actively exploring for uranium in Australia since 1996 and is 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.
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 employer of Aboriginal people and our experts help Cameco maintain safe operations and protect the environment.
Our mines in Wyoming and Nebraska provide more than half of America's domestically-produced uranium used to generate clean electricity at nuclear power plants. Here, we use an environmentally friendly in situ recovery mining process where uranium is extracted from wellfields, rather than open pits or underground shafts.
