Company Background

Fission Uranium Corp (TSX: FCU) owns the award-winning Patterson Lake South (PLS) uranium project, host to the near-surface, high-grade Triple R deposit - part of the largest mineralized trend in the Athabasca Basin region. Major new high-grade zones have been discovered each year since discovery in 2012 and, recently, exploration drilling encountered mineralization 600m west of the trend. Headed up by CEO, Dev Randhawa, and President / COO and Chief Geologist, Ross McElroy, Fission is one of the most successful exploration companies in the uranium sector.

Highlights

  • New Preliminary economic study shows the Triple has the potential for an OPEX of just $14.02/lb, which would make it one of the world's lowest cost uranium producers.
  • Fission is well-funded - in January 2016, CGN Mining invested $82 million at a substantial premium and signed an off-take agreement.
  • 50m starting depth of high grade deposits mean that more holes can be drilled within a given meterage and, when the project advances, potentially low production costs compared to projects with deeper mineralization.
