Mining and Milling the Midwest Project

The Midwest Project involves the mining and milling of a uranium deposit located near the eastern margin of the Athabasca basin in northern Saskatchewan; about 15 km west of the JEB mill at the McClean Lake Operation. COGEMA proposed to extend the mining and milling activities at the McClean Lake Operation to include the Midwest Project. The project includes the following components: development of the Midwest ore deposit as an open pit mine; development of a dedicated haul road linking the Midwest development with the existing McClean Lake Operation; and increasing the production capacity of the JEB mill to accommodate the planned rate for milling of the Midwest ore.
