News and Opinion

Coverage of uranium city since July 1, 2021.

Saskatchewan uranium major contributor to Manhattan Project

"...Craig Baird, host of the Canadian History Ehx podcast, says Saskatchewan was one of the United States' most prominent uranium suppliers during the nuclear arms race. “We hear about people like Oppenheimer and Einstein or people who were actually working on the project but very little about our role in it. I think most people don't even know the uranium mostly came from Canada..."


Uranium warning back for Faulder water supply outside Summerland

"...The uranium in the water supply has been an issue for many years, and likely dates back to the region’s ancient geological history as a volcanically active area..."


Extreme cold warnings in effect for northern Sask.: Environment Canada

"...“Temperatures will remain below normal through next week with wind chills around minus 45 [degrees],” ECCC explained in its warning for the Uranium City area..."


Grant Devine Transformed Saskatchewan Politics

"...In addition, these firms have become world leaders within their own sectors: Cameco is the largest publicly traded uranium company in the world and the second-largest uranium producer in the world, while Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan, which merged with Agrium to form Nutrien, is the world’s largest producer of potash and second-largest producer of nitrogen fertilizer. The Saskatchewan Oil and Gas Corporation, after being privatized in 1986, would continue to operate as Wascana Energy until 1997 when it was purchased by Canadian Occidental Petroleum. Canadian Occidental Petroleum would be eventually purchased by Nexen, a Canadian oil and gas company based in Calgary..."


Northern, southwestern Sask. under heat warnings: Environment Canada

"...Almost all of northern Saskatchewan is under the current heat warning, with exception of the Uranium City - Camsell Portage area..."


Taxes potentially uncollected: Saskatchewan years behind on potash, oil audits

"...The Saskatchewan Ministry of Energy and Resources is years behind on auditing potash, oil and uranium companies, potentially leaving millions of dollars in royalties and taxes uncollected, says the provincial auditor..."


Saskatchewan releases plan to advance small modular nuclear reactors

"...The Saskatchewan provincial government, along with the governments of Ontario, New Brunswick and Alberta, has announced a strategic plan outlining a path towards the use of small modular nuclear reactors (SMRs), which it hopes can advance SaskPower's goal of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050..."


North Korea can produce more uranium than current rate, report says

"...These capabilities govern the rate at which North Korea might expand its nuclear arsenal, determine the magnitude of the threat to international security and the challenge of potential nuclear disarmament, and measure North Korea's ability to fuel its future nuclear energy program, the report said..."


Modern forensics seeks origin of uranium cubes from Nazi A-bomb project

"...A team of researchers is using state-of-the-art forensic techniques to solve the riddle of the origin of uranium cubes that were used as part of the Nazi effort to develop nuclear weapons during the Second World War. The story of the Allied Manhattan Project, which was established in 1942 to beat Germany in the race for "the Bomb" is well-known, but what is much less familiar to the public was how the German effort compared. In the popular imagination, and in the fears of Allied leaders of the day, it was easy to imagine that the two projects were mirror images of one another..."


Charged graphene foam acts as

"...Is there anything graphene can’t do? Researchers at MIT have found yet another use for the over-achieving wonder material, by making a reusable filter out of graphene oxide foam that acts like a magnet for uranium, effectively pulling the radioactive element out of drinking water. Uranium can leach into water supplies from natural deposits in rock, or through waste from nuclear power plants or mining operations. Once there, it’s invisible to the naked eye and it doesn’t take very high doses to start causing harm to human health..."


Precautionary evacuation at northern Saskatchewan mine due to wildfire

"...A Saskatoon-based uranium company says its evacuating all non-essential personnel from the Cigar Lake mine in northern Saskatchewan as a precaution due to the proximity of a wildfire in the vicinity of the operation..."


Cigar Lake uranium mine being evacuated as a precaution due to wildfire

"...The precaution is due to the proximity of a northern wildfire that is currently burning in the vicinity of the operation, according to Cameco. Cigar Lake is approximately 300 kilometres southeast of Uranium City..."
