Cameco (TSX: CCO; NYSE: CCJ) today is providing preliminary operating results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2022.

On October 27, 2022, we plan to announce our 2022 third quarter results before markets open. We expect to announce deliveries in the uranium segment for the quarter ended September 30, 2022, to be between 5 million and 5.5 million pounds, in line with the pattern of deliveries for the third quarter of 2022 disclosed in our annual MD&A. In our fuel services segment, we expect to announce deliveries for the same period of between 2.1 million and 2.4 million kilograms of uranium ("kgU").

Production in our uranium segment for the quarter ended September 30, 2022, is expected to be 2 million pounds (our share) from Cigar Lake. Production in our fuel services segment is expected to be 1.5 million kgU for the same period.

The restart activities at McArthur River and Key Lake continue to progress with first production coming from the mill expected later in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Our Inkai joint venture has continued to experience delays in shipping material via the Trans-Caspian route. Depending on when we receive the shipment of our share of Inkai's 2022 production, our 2022 share of earnings from this equity-accounted investee and the timing of the receipt of our share of dividends from the joint venture may be impacted.

Interest by third parties in contracting with us for the supply of our uranium and fuel services remains strong. Utilities continue to be focused on ensuring they have the conversion and enrichment services they require secured under long-term contracts. As a result, we are seeing prices for conversion at historic highs and have been focused on agreeing to long-term supply terms with customers to meet their increased demand. Year-to-date, we have added to our long-term contract portfolio more than 50 million pounds in our uranium segment and more than 7 million kgU UF 6 conversion in our fuel services segment.

Qualified persons

The technical and scientific information discussed in this document with respect to our material properties Cigar Lake and McArthur River/Key Lake was respectively approved by Lloyd Rowson, general manager, Cigar Lake, Cameco and Greg Murdock, general manager, McArthur River/Key Lake, Cameco, who are qualified persons for the purposes of NI 43-101.

Baselode Intersects Best Drill Hole To Date, 25 Metres From Surface

  • AK22-051 intersected 2,320 cps over 30.1 m starting at 27.0 m drill hole depth, ranks as the best drill hole on the project, and includes six separate intervals of >10,000 cps*
  • AK22-047 intersected 5,229 cps over 7.35 m at 140.65 m , ranks as second-best drill hole on the project, and includes eight separate intervals of >10,000 cps

Baselode Energy Corp. (TSXV: FIND) (OTCQB: BSENF) (" Baselode " or the " Company ") is pleased to provide an update on the ongoing 20,000 metre diamond drilling program (the " Program ") on the ACKIO high-grade uranium discovery (" ACKIO "), Hook project (" Hook "), Athabasca Basin area (the " Basin "), northern Saskatchewan ( see Figure 1 and Table 1 ).

"We continue to hit mineralization at the overburden contact; within 25 m from surface. The mineralization from AK22-051 is the shallowest being drilled in the Basin. This rarity of near-surface mineralization with high levels of radioactivity sets Baselode apart from our peers as there's no other recent discovery this close to surface. Near-surface mineralization has been a key characteristic required for numerous Basin deposits going into production as open pit mines. Holes AK22-051 and AK22-047 are substantially the two best drill holes on ACKIO to date in terms of continuously elevated radioactivity. They also have the highest average levels of radioactivity, and each includes multiple discrete intersections with greater than 10,000 cps. We're excited to see ACKIO grow with near-surface mineralization, including consistently higher levels of radioactivity. AK22-051 remains open in all directions and AK22-047 remains open to the east," said James Sykes , CEO, President and Director of Baselode.

Abandoned Uranium open pit mine

Top Uranium Mines in the World

In 2021, world uranium mine production came to 56,995 metric tons (MT) of U3O8. Kazakhstan was the top-producing country by far at 21,819 MT, followed by Namibia and Canada.

Together, those three nations accounted for over half of global uranium production, with Kazakhstan taking a 38 percent share. Additionally, a wide variety of uranium-mining companies contribute to the world's production.

But where in the world are the top uranium mines? While many of them are located in Kazakhstan, Namibia, Canada and Australia, that's not the case for all of the largest uranium mines.
