David Cates, President & CEO of Denison commented “I’m honoured to join the CNA Board and Executive Committee on behalf of Denison Mines. The CNA plays a vital role in representing and promoting the nuclear energy industry in Canada. Denison believes in the importance of nuclear energy as a source of emission free, low-cost, reliable base-load energy, and that Canada’s nuclear energy industry is uniquely bolstered by the fact that the Athabasca Basin region, in northern Saskatchewan, is the most attractive jurisdiction for uranium mining investment globally.”
