West Cluff

Project Overview

West Cluff Project Staking Highlights

  • 11,148-hectare property in the re-emerging Western Athabasca Basin uranium district
  • Uranium mineralization encountered during prior exploration
  • Large databank of results from prior surveys, ground prospecting and reconnaissance drilling
  • Less than 3km west of past producing Cluff Lake mine 250km north of the town of La Loche
  • All season access via government-maintained Highway 955

The highly prospective property covers both the margin and near margin western side of the Carswell Structure, in the Western Athabasca Basin district. The Carswell Impact Structure is a large, circular shaped section measuring ~18km in diameter, comprised primarily of the basement rock that underlies the Athabasca Basin sandstone formations. A major geologic tectonic event, possibly related to a meteorite impact, resulted in the basement rock of the Carswell Structure being quickly thrust upwards for several hundred meters through the overlying Athabasca sandstones. The Carswell Structure is tectonically complex, with a number of ring faults surrounding the margin of the structure and a series of linear faults perpendicular to the ring faults within the basement structure, often expressing themselves as discrete Electromagnetic “EM” conductors. High grade Athabasca Basin related uranium deposits are often associated with EM fault conductors, within hydrothermal altered rock, in a setting similar to the West Cluff property.

The major past producing Cluff Lake Mine (over 62 million pounds of uranium produced) is located on the southern edge of the Carswell Structure in a tectonically complex environment, similar to that interpreted on the West Cluff property and is within 3km of the property.
