Recently Athabasca Uranium
(UAX.V or ATURF) engaged the uranium exploration geophysical team at the University of Saskatchewan
(USASK) which is led by Dr. Zoltan Hajnal
The Emeritus Professor is a leading expert in the use of seismic to discover uranium.
played a key role in the discovery of Hathor's Roughrider Deposit and the advancement of Cameco's McArthur River Mine, the largest high grade uranium mine in the world.
sees similarities in the seismic data at Athabasca Uranium's
Keefe Lake Project to major uranium discoveries like McArthur River and Shea Creek
In the recent UAX press release, Dr. Hajnal
commented, "Several of the seismic profiles at Keefe Lake show anomalous basement structures, comparable to features of known prominent mineral deposits such as McArthur River and Shea Creek
will hopefully help prove our Keefe Lake theories out, and launch Athabasca Uranium
to becoming a world-class uranium company."
played an important role in the success at the Roughrider Discovery.
Watch a recent interview with Dr. Zoltan Hajnal, Professor Emeritus at University of Saskatchewan in Geophysics where we explore how seismic is an important tool in uranium exploration in the Athabasca Basin below.
