As one of the most active exploration companies in the Athabasca Basin, community support and development are important aspects of how Fission operates. Our management and technical team have ties with the local community that stretch back as much as 30 years and Chief Teddy Clark of the Clearwater River Dene Nation is a member of the Fission Uranium Advisory Board.
This presentation was delivered by Company President and COO, Ross McElroy, when presenting to local Community Groups in Saskatchewan, November 21-24, 2016.
