Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Canadian uranium database captures the geological characteristics of Canadian radioactive occurrences, which are natural concentrations of uranium +/- thorium that exceed 10 X background. Multiple radioactive zones that lie within 400¿500 metres from each other may be captured as one occurrence. Some uranium occurrences will become economic producers, but only after extensive exploration, economic evaluation and environmental assessment. The most significant deposits in Canada, such as those in the Athabasca (SK) and Thelon (NU) sedimentary basins are associated with Proterozoic unconformities. Other common occurrence type are sandstone, veins, paleoplacer, intrusion-related, magmatic-hydrothermal, volcanic, phosphatic, and surficial. Older terms such as 'magmatic-anatectic¿ have been replaced as resources and data sources permit. This scope of this database has been broadened to include rare metal occurrences.
