Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Targeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI-4) is a collaborative federal geoscience program that provides industry with the next generation of geoscience knowledge and innovative techniques to better detect buried mineral deposits, thereby reducing some of the risks of exploration. All of Canada¿s current uranium production comes from the Athabasca Basin. Within the basin, numerous high-grade uranium ore deposits have been discovered at the unconformity between the sedimentary rocks and underlying basement, particularly along the shallow eastern margin of the basin. With recent exploration successes indicating that uranium deposits can occur deeper within the basin, new exploration tools are required to aid in exploration. Acting as a baseline for additional work, this study is a compilation of key assessment report data filed by the uranium exploration industry in the basin.
