Forum Energy Metals

Exploring Three Highly Prospective Energy Metals Projects in Saskatchewan

This Forum Energy Metals profile is part of a paid investor education campaign.*



Forum focuses its mineral exploration efforts in Canada’s resource-rich Province of Saskatchewan and Nunavut Territory. Saskatchewan ranks among the very top global jurisdictions for mining investment attractiveness. For decades, Saskatchewan. has maintained a consistent favorable regulatory environment that encourages mineral exploration and development.

Saskatchewan is the world’s second largest producer of uranium and hosts the richest uranium deposits found anywhere on the planet. The province also remains underexplored for energy metals, thereby offering considerable large-scale mineral exploration and development investment opportunities.

Nunavut is a large northern Territory in Canada with vast natural resource potential. There are currently three operating gold mines and one iron ore mine in Nunavut. Several other uranium, gold and base metals deposits have been discovered.

Forum Energy Metals (TSXV:FMC,OTCQB:FDCFF) is an exploration and discovery company. Known primarily as a uranium explorer in the prolific Athabasca Basin, Forum broadened its focus by adding a diverse portfolio of energy metal exploration projects near the southeastern perimeter of the Basin. With a strong local presence and over 125 years of combined uranium and metals geological expertise in Saskatchewan, Forum used the decade long weakness in commodity prices to acquire attractive exploration properties in the copper, nickel, and cobalt energy metals space.

Recent Developments

1. Nunavut Uranium Project (Thelon Basin) - 40 claims totaling 53,402 ha acquired by staking. Formerly held by Cameco, the prospective ground hosts two uranium discoveries, in addition to a third significant uranium showing, and surrounds Orano Canada’s 133-million-pound Kiggavik uranium deposit. Orano, formerly known as AREVA, completed six years of pre-development engineering, environmental, and community engagement studies from 2008 to 2014, prior to placing the project on care and maintenance due to the prolonged period of low uranium prices.

The Thelon Basin is, perhaps, the most prospective region in the world for discovering new high-grade unconformity style uranium deposits outside Saskatchewan’s Athabasca Basin.

Forum Claim Map

Forum’s newly acquired claims cover the east-west and northeast-southwest structural trends hosting the Kiggavik deposits, in addition to Cameco’s discoveries made during the period 2008-2012. When combined with Forum’s legacy claims, the Company’s total land position in the area increases to 97,433 ha.2. Wollaston Uranium Project in the eastern Athabasca Basin to begin a 3,000m drill program in February 2022. The property is located within 10km of Cameco’s Rabbit Lake uranium mill and within 30km of Orano/Denison’s McClean Lake uranium mill.
