WIM/WIN-SK Lunch & Learn Event: Denison Announces Initiation of ISR Field Testing as the Summer Field Program Commences at Wheeler River
Denison Announces Initiation of ISR Field Testing as the Summer Field Program Commences at Wheeler River
David Cates, CPA, CA, MAcc & BA
In September of 2018, Denison Mines announced the results of its Pre-feasibility Study for the Wheeler River Project, which highlighted the selection of an In-Situ Recovery (“ISR”) mining method for the development of its high-grade Phoenix deposit. Less than a year later and the company has not only commenced a summer ISR field test program – a first-of-its-kind in the Athabasca Basin – but is also seeing positive preliminary results from this field test. At this particular lunch-and-learn, David Cates will be speaking more on the technicalities of employing ISR in the Athabasca Basin, with specific reference to the unique geology of the Phoenix deposit that makes this type of mining amendable, and what that might mean for mining operations within this region in the future.
