Fission Uranium Corp. (Stock Symbols – TSX: FCU, OTCMKTS: FCUUF) engages in the acquisition, exploration, and development of uranium resource properties in Canada.
Its primary asset is the 100% owned Patterson Lake South property that consists of 17 contiguous mineral claims covering an area of 119 square miles located in the Athabasca Basin region of Saskatchewan.
The Patterson Lake South (PLS) project hosts the Triple R high grade and near-surface uranium deposit.
Fission Uranium released two pre-feasibility studies (PFS) in 2019 which allows the comparison between two options or mining this deposit – a hybrid approach in which underground mining operations and open pit operations are combined to maximize the obtained uranium within this deposit, and another approach which would only conduct underground mining operations.
The Triple R deposit contains just over 102 million pounds of uranium in the indicated category, and nearly 33 million pounds in the inferred category.
The undeground mining PFS demonstrates total production of 81 million pounds of uranium with an average of 11.3 million pounds per year of production over the mines life of 7 years.
The life of mine average cash costs for production are noted as $7.18 per pound of uranium produced. The company notes the construction time is estimated to be three years after the determination to proceed. The NPV (net present value) of the project is $702 million CAD, and the IRR (internal rate of return) is 25%.
The company provides the following development milestones on the way to making a final project construction decision:
2021: Complete team expansion and transition, commence environmental assessment, and conduct feasibility study
2022: Complete feasibility study
2023: Complete environmental impact statement
2026: Make construction decision
Fission Uranium is planning a drill program as shown below to further expand their resource base and continue to de-risk the project.
China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN) is one of two companies authorized by the Chinese government for the import and export of uranium.
The relationship with China General Nuclear Power Corporation provides Fission Uranium with direct exposure to the uranium market.
CGN mining owns nearly 20% of Fission Uranium and the Triple R uranium deposit.
The company was incorporated in 2013 and is headquartered in Kelowna, Canada.
