Guest Speaker

Jared Orynik, P.Eng.

Mr. Jared Orynik has over 15 years of experience in mining, mineral processing and extractive metallurgy. He started his career with Teck (previously Teck Cominco) working in British Columbia and Alaska in the roles of production engineer, commissioning engineer and senior process engineer. Through various roles with Teck, Mr. Orynik gained experience in mineral processing, hydrometallurgy and pyrometallurgy for the recovery of zinc, lead, silver, gold & bismuth as well as construction and commissioning. One highlight from that experience was the commissioning and ramp-up of the Teck Pogo Gold Mill.

Mr. Orynik joined Hatch in 2011 as a process engineer and project manager after returning back to his home province of Saskatchewan. Over the past 9 years, he has been completing sustaining capital projects with Mosaic and Nutrien as well as spending 3 years under secondment at Cameco as a project manager for the Major Projects group; working at the Key Lake and Cigar Lake sites. Mr. Orynik also managed several scopes of work for the Denison Mines Wheeler River Project Pre-Feasibility Report issued in 2018.

Presentation Information

Denison Mines Corp. (“Denison”) has a 90% interest in the Wheeler River Uranium Project (“Wheeler River”) located along the eastern edge of the Athabasca Basin in northern Saskatchewan between the Key Lake mill and the McArthur River uranium mine. The project is host to the high-grade Phoenix and Gryphon uranium deposits, discovered by Denison in 2008 and 2014 respectively. The Pre-Feasibility study , completed in accordance with NI 43-101 in September 2018, is highlighted by the selection of the In-Situ Recovery mining method for the development of the Phoenix deposit. Phoenix is the highest-grade undeveloped uranium deposit known globally. The presentation will provide an overview of Wheeler River including a summary of the ongoing work aimed to develop the project into the next uranium producing operation in the Athabasca Basin region.
